242+- acres of mixed wooded and cropland on the outskirts of Waterloo IL, only 30+- minutes from St. Louis.  Well placed for an investment or future subdivision.  Chantilly Village Subdivision adjoins the 160-acre tract on the south side.  Acorns Golf Course is just South of the property.  Several small ponds are scattered throughout the property and there are possible sites for lakes and other ponds.  Miles of trails provide plenty of recreational possibilities, and it is a great hunting property.

Note:  This past weekend, May 31st, I was at the property showing it again.  Previously I was amazed at the amount of deer traffic on the numerous trails throughout the property.  We have had several days of heavy rain that pretty much wiped out the tracks, but again I was amazed at the amount of fresh tracks, less than 24 hours old, and the deer we jumped.  I know I should have taken a camera, but I didn’t…  Anyway, for the hunters, I don’t think this property will disappoint!
