Just over 20 acres in Dallas County! Land this close to the city is hard to come by. This 3 bedroom 2 bath cottage can easily be your everyday oasis, or a weekend retreat or hunters paradise. This property has been lovingly cared for by one family for nearly 100 years. You would love to hear the stories of the upper level barn dances in the historic dairy barn. The deck on the house features 3 different areas that resemble the bow of a ship giving you many spots to watch the abundance of nature on this gorgeous piece of country. The land consists of open areas for fire pits, animals and games, as well as timber that allows for forest preserve tax credits and a charming little creek. The home features newer countertops, stainless steel appliances, updated bathrooms, and newer finish in walk-out basement. Clean and move-in ready. Aside from the large barn, there is a spacious 2 car garage and shed. There is nothing not to love here. Van Meter schools.
