This property is a rare gem for eastern Nebraska. Secluded enough to support a large population of diverse wildlife, but close enough to Lincoln to be to Memorial Stadium in 15 minutes. This 77 acre refuge is an island within a sea of cropland. Deer, wild turkey, pheasant and quail (yes, quail!) live, nest, and raise their young on this property, safely ensconced in the native habitat, but close to the bounty offered by the neighboring farm ground. The focal point of the property is a 32 x 40 recently built barn with a 16 x 40 living space on the second level, complete with a deck overlooking a pond and the fields beyond. The barn has a concrete floor and is fully wired for electricity. There is a well in place with excellent water quality
