MLS #416189

62 Yellow Springs Rd.
Elizabethtown, IL 62931

Price: $129,900
Description: Hardin County- Looking for privacy? What a great hideout this home would be that is situated on 40-acres of mostly wooded land off the beaten path within the Shawnee National Forest and yet within 12 miles of Elizabethtown and 30 miles from Harrisburg, IL. Make it your permanent or summer home, hunting lodge or horseback riding retreat.

A tree-lined driveway leads to the home from the graveled Yellow Springs Road. The home is an interesting run of rooms including a spiral metal staircase up to the attic that contains a large bedroom that could be made into two separate bedrooms. The basement has entry from indoors and outdoors and houses the furnace and washer/dryer. The main bedroom has two entry doors, one on either side, one going to a sitting room and the other into a hallway. The large kitchen has like-new country style cabinets with several rooms off from it that could be used as a dining room and another as a family room. The enclosed back porch could be fixed up to be a sunroom with a deck out the backdoor overlooking the wooded property. With the many rooms, you can create your own personal space; rooms to suit your lifestyle.

Outbuildings include a concrete building for storage or perhaps a place for your hobby interest. There are two smaller outbuildings plus an opened-spaced old barn that could be revived to house livestock or perhaps made into a garage.

There’s some fencing around the 40-acres of rolling ground with some cleared area. Great for livestock or left as is for wildlife. The ground is hilly but there’s flat area for a garden. Goose Creek meanders through the property.

Hunting, hiking, horseback riding, rock climbing, fishing and boating are just some of the many activities available in the area. Garden of the Gods, Rim Rock/Pounds Hollow Recreation area, Ohio River, Iron Furnace, Stone Face and Cave-in-Rock are nearby places of interest. From Cave-in-Rock you can drive onto a ferry to cross the Ohio River to explore Kentucky.

Whether you are looking for place to retire, raise a family, or a seasonal retreat, this could be what you are looking for.

Across the pond is a 30’x30’ barn with an 11’x30’ overhang. You will find more small storage sheds near the walk-in greenhouse. An efficient heat pump system will warm your home in the winter, and keep it cool in the summer.
