If you have ever dreamed of owning spectacular hunting land along the Wisconsin River with the ability to build a residence, here is your chance.  Only 1 similar property has sold on the open market along the Wisconsin River in this section of Iowa County in the last 20 years. Access is via a recorded easement off River Road and this property hunts a lot bigger than 73 acres due to access to State land to the East and West.  This property is technically part of Cedar Island as Blue Mounds Creek runs the entire length just north of the southern boundary.  The State Land to the West & East comprise the rest of the island.  Currently the creek is low and can easily be crossed with boots.  When the water levels rise, waders or a rowboat would be needed.  In fact, a rowboat is included with the sale of this property. The property is in MFL / Closed till 12-31-34 to keep taxes low.

A walking and/or UTV bridge could be constructed with proper DNR permits to allow for easier access if so desired.  Once across the creek, the woods have been relatively untouched for years.  With the right equipment and a few weekends of work, I nice trail system could be created to really improve access and usability of these woods.  While the woods can flood from time to time, there are some rather mature trees who have called this property home for years.  And the views from the Wisconsin River are simply breathtaking. 

The Southwest corner of the property does have some high ground that is south of the creek and is the only area on the property that would make for a suitable build site.  This site has been confirmed as meeting County requirements to construct a residence.  Buyer to perform due diligence with the process for obtaining permits. No utilities are currently on this property, so please take that into consideration if your intentions are to build.

Please do not walk this property without contacting the listing agent and a licensed agent must be present for all showings.  Knight Barry Title Company will be used for closing and to hold earnest money.  Showings can be scheduled by calling, texting, emailing the listing agent or by utilizing Showing Time or Aligned Showings.
