Recreational Considerations

Near the main residence are a pair of spring-fed ponds (two acres and one acre, respectively) that offer excellent fishing throughout the year and swimming in the summer months. In addition, there are three other smaller ponds located on the property.

 

The potential for hunting and wildlife habitat is substantial although undeveloped, and opportunities for waterfowl, deer, dove, and turkey are all present. The multiple land uses are well-balanced with a variety of food sources, water, and cover throughout the property. In particular, the early successional habitat hold potential and could easily be enhanced through an effective wildlife management plan. The property is bordered by large, managed timber tracts.

There aren’t any horses on the property currently, but the recently repaired barn and paddocks stand ready to welcome the equestrian enthusiast back to Elgin. The barn is 5 surrounded by large, level areas that could accommodate an expansion of the paddocks or a riding ring. There are also trails throughout the property, which could be expanded by future owners for horses, running, and ATV-use.
