This picturesque property contains 18.79 taxable acres and is improved with a 3-bedroom (1 on the main floor and 2 in the basement) country home built in 1975 with a 2-car garage, 2 1/2 baths, city water and utilities, central air conditioning, wrap around elevated deck and an additional metal pole garage-shop. There is a long winding blacktop drive leading to the home (this is an owned drive). This home sits high on the bluff with a beautiful view of the historic Mississippi River! The balance of this real estate consists of open areas of well-maintained mowed areas and large mature timber which offers abundant white tail deer and wild turkey as well as other game. Although this property is located on the edge of town, it has a rural atmosphere. A property of this caliber rarely comes up for auction…be sure to take time to check this property out.
