Welcome to an expansive 85-acre retreat in Williamson County, just 10 miles from Carbondale and 12miles to Marion, featuring two distinct homes. The first residence, a 2240-square-foot sanctuary, seamlessly blends comfort and natural elegance with its open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, and a chef's kitchen boasting copper counters. A wrap-around deck provides a view of a serene 10-acre lake, perfect for duck hunting and fishing. Meticulously managed timber offers a haven for deer, turkey, and small game, while the balance of open ground invites fields, pasture, or the flourishing of native plants. The second residence, a tranquil 40-acre haven, boasts a 1760-square-foot retreat with 2 beds and 3 baths. This home features an open layout, an oversized 1-car garage, and a large covered porch with stunning views of the 10-acre lake. The property includes a well-maintained 1260-square-foot workshop with electric, concrete floors, insulation, a bathroom, and a full-length covered porch. With 26 acres of managed timber and 8 acres of open ground, it is versatile and ready for your vision. Nature enthusiasts will appreciate the proximity to Lake Egypt, Crab Orchard, Rend Lake, and Kinkaid Lake, all within a 20-mile radius. The Shawnee National Forest, a stone's throw away, beckons for hiking, hunting, and horseback riding. Additionally, the property is conveniently located 5 miles from the local wine trail. This is more than two homes; it's a lifestyle—an 85-acre retreat that seamlessly combines modern comfort with the natural beauty of Southern Illinois. Whether you're drawn to outdoor adventures, the tranquility of private sanctuaries, or the potential for crafting your dream retreat, this expansive property offers a unique opportunity to embrace the beauty of Williamson County.
