This property features sizeable 20 acre acreage with a very good location lying adjacent to a County Oil Highway which has an older set of farm buildings that are in need of a substantial amount of repair or demolition, although this could be a spectacular construction site for a new home, especially since rural water and electricity are servicing the farmstead and the existing building site is surrounded by a mature tree grove, furthermore this property is complemented by the additional land surrounding the farmstead that is included with this acreage. The improvements on this farm include an older 1½ story 3 bedroom home that would require a substantial amount of updating and repair to be utilized, along with some other incidental older farm buildings.  This farmstead is situated in a pleasant country setting with mature trees and grove and is serviced by Sioux Valley Rural Electric and Big Sioux Community Rural Water, thus this farmstead could be a nice location for establishment of a new rural home.  According to FSA information this 20 acre acreage/hobby farm has no acres enrolled as cropland, although the +/-7.28 acres of land south of the farmstead is utilized as hayland and could potentially be tillable and the +/-6.64 acres north of the farmstead is essentially pastureland.   According to the Moody County Assessor this acreage has an overall soil rating of .773.  The 2012 RE taxes payable in 2013 on this property were $1,266.14.  If you are interested in a very well located sizeable 20 acre acreage/hobby farm for use as a rural housing site or addition to an area crop-livestock operation, then make plans to attend this auction.
