Recreational land for sale – Indianola Nature Preserve

Iowa’s diverse landscape create’s a beautiful place to live and work, and there are currently numerous efforts underway to preserve our delicate Eco systems for the future. Under Iowa Law, a Conservation Easement is defined as ” a restriction on the use of land that exists to preserve scenic beauty, wildlife habitat, wetlands, or forests; to promote recreation, open space, agriculture, soil or water conservation; or to conserve the land”.

The previous owners of this unique property saw the inherent need to set aside land, and preserve it against future development in an effort to maintain our diverse landscape that is so quickly being destroyed. Through a Conservation Easement, they have guaranteed that this land will forever remain untouched, so that future generations may enjoy it.

The current owners have decided to relinquish ownership, and now this unique 31 acre property is available for purchase. If you have been looking for an extremely affordable piece of property to enjoy with friends and family, a place to let the dogs run, or possibly a place to enjoy some hunting, this may be it.

The attached documents outline the property location, and the recorded conservation easements on record.

    Some of my most cherished memories are from early childhood hunting trips with my dad and uncle. The stories told and time spent bonding in those deep hardwood hills of Missouri surely left an imprint on me. My passion for Whitetails and the outdoors only seemed to intensify as I moved first to Kansas and then finally here to Iowa in search of the hunting opportunities I longed for. It only took one short visit to know this would be the place my wife and I would raise our kids. In 2012, I was fortunate to land a position with Pioneer Hi-Bred, which gave us the chance to make the move. Shortly after, I transferred my Kansas Real Estate license, and began working for Mossy Oak Properties in early 2013. Since then, I have been very blessed to meet and work with numerous farmers looking to divest some land, families looking for a place to build their dream home, and even a few hardcore bow hunters like myself who are looking for a place to call their own. In every case, it has been an honor and privilege to work with such great clients. While it is not an endeavor to take lightly, buying or selling land should be one of the most exciting opportunities of your life. It’s a new chapter that requires diligent work to ensure your goals are met. If you are looking to buy or sell some land in Iowa, I would love to earn your business.
