The property has a fair weather natural spring which flows along the North boundary. There is also a very nice location for a pond higher up to the East above the spring feed. There is also a newly drilled water well being developed that could be used for anything from household to a pond water supply. Speaking of water, along the 27th avenue frontage there is a new 6-inch Marion Co Rural Water District water line that can easily be tapped into as the district is seeking new customers.

We will retain ownership of the balance of the property (240 acres) and would be open to leasing the hunting rights on that property. If very large Whitetail deer trips your trigger, you are in luck.
