You can look for a long while, but you won’t find another property quite like this 263.5 acre +/- parcel. The Pine River Valley in Richland County is renowned for its spectacular bluffs rising out of the valley floor and topped with gnarled white pines. This property has a double portion of this splendor as along one side of the property flows the Pine River while along the other side is the West Branch of the Pine. These two streams are both DNR rated class 2 trout streams and run for over ¾ of a mile on the property. Just off of the property, the West Branch penetrates a rock escarpment forming a natural tunnel, and the two streams meet at the Rockbridge park.
In the past, the property has been an active family farm and could likely be used for agricultural purposes again. With some work, approximately 35 acres could possibly be put back into tillable production for row crops or alfalfa. Much of it has been fenced for pasture, and approximately 95 acres might be pastured. 100+/- acres is wooded, which consists of Driftless Area hardwoods and a few scattered evergreens.
While the property has farming potential, it is so much more than that. Trails run throughout the property, which gives access for hiking, ATV, horses, or cross-country skiing. Much of the area that isn’t wooded is currently in high grass providing excellent game (both big game and game bird) cover on the whole property. Scattered historical fields would make strategic food plots and the long wooded central ridge provides great stand sites.
A dead-end road leads into the parcel where you’ll find an amazing home/ storage building. No expense was spared on this 1920+/- square foot dwelling that could be utilized as a primary or second home. The main living area is open concept with the kitchen, dining, and living room flowing seamlessly together. Two large bedrooms and a full bath extend down a hall. To the front of the building, a 3 season porch drinks in the view and completes the living area. The living area has radiant in-floor and forced air heat and central air.
Sharing a roof with this comfortable living area, you’ll find an astounding garage/ storage area. The 6000+/- square feet of storage is insulated and climate controlled. A second full bath resides off the storage area. One has to see this to believe it!
