|Price Per Acre:
Whether in search of a hunting camp with the creature comforts of home or a new permanent rural homestead, you’ll find it all possible on this 61+/- acre setting. Situated just north of Wittenberg off Hwy 45, the 1,511+/-sq.ft.Dutch Housing manufactured home built in 1992 is hidden from the highway behind a wooded buffer. Equipped with a new steel roof in 2014, it offers 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room with wood fireplace, large bonus room addition, laundry, forced air heat, central a/c, and appliances.
Ample storage space for all your equipment is provided by two Wick outbuildings. The 30’x40’ detached garage offers 2 stalls along with additional workshop and storage space. The second outbuilding is 22’x30’. Both spaces are gravel flooring.
Departing basecamp, easterly access provides optimal ingress/egress under most wind conditions. The well-balanced tract affords all the whitetail habitat essentials with opportunities to enhance key features.
A thick tag alder and spruce swamp with Railroad Creek flowing through comprises most of the northern portion providing a fantastic bedding sanctuary. The southern section of the tract rises onto a gentle ridge of northern hardwoods. Primary species include sugar maple, red oak, basswood, aspen, ash, elm, and hickory. Best described as intermediate-aged timber, a commercial harvest is not quite ready; however, timber stand improvement targeting low quality stems would result in balanced improvement of habitat and timber growth rates.
The transition area between swamp and hardwoods creates a stereotypical travel corridor easily discernible by the number of trails and rubs. On the far southern end, a pair of lightly managed food plots could be expanded and re-established. This bit of work would allow you the perfect opportunity to observe early morning deer and turkey movement from the comfort of camp in a well-positioned recliner with coffee in hand.
Should the pursuit of game not be your passion, this little gem has potential for multiple other uses. The “food plots” on the south end would be a nice fit for some livestock to start your own farmette. With some light clearing, a trail through the timber could be developed to reach the Wiouwash State Trail on the western boundary providing direct access from your backyard for hiking, biking, horse riding, and snowmobiling.
