    Description

    Only a little over an hour drive from the Chicago Loop! Wildfeather is now available after four generations, creating a rare lifetime opportunity. Acquired in the 1940s by Arthur T. McIntosh of Kenilworth and Inverness as an investment in "health and happiness." 386 secluded, wooded acres at the confluence of the Kankakee and Des Plaines Rivers and the beginning of the Illinois. 1 mile of frontage on the Kankakee, 1/3 mile on the Des Plaines, private 41-acre inlet and 9-acre pond, 4-acre island with causeway. Fish for bass and walleye; hunt for ducks, geese, turkey, and deer; trap beaver; enjoy a day on the water boating, skiing, sailing canoeing, kayaking; or just relax around the pool at your weekend residence, known as Therapy Lodge. Watch the blue herons, white egrets, and the resident bald eagles from the screened gazebo. Hike the 1+ miles of wooded trails along the shoreline and winding through 200 year oak groves. Follow hidden paths to the old beekeeper's hives and restore your own honey production. Hunt for arrowheads and other Native American artifacts left by tribes who lived on this strategic waterway peninsula dating back to 14,000 years B.C. Continue the conservation practices established in the 1970s when native prairie grasses were planted along with strips of corn and sorghum for the wildlife. When Old Man Winter arrives, enjoy hours of cross country skiing and ice skating, returning to a roaring fire in the custom fireplace built from stone hand-selected on the property. In late winter, you must visit to see the thousands of white pelicans resting on their migration route. For the more adventurous, use Wildfeather as your base and cruise America's Great Loop Route! The Main Residence has 4 Bedrooms, 2 full Baths and an In-ground pool. A Caretaker's Home with 4 Bedrooms & 2 Baths and 2 Barns are also located on the property.
