Property Description

This is one of the most nostalgic farms in Illinois.  Sitting just outside of Grand Detour this farm has rolling ag, fenced pasture, multiple barns, main house + guest house, timber, and river frontage giving it a little bit of everything. This farm was a part of the historical Babson Arabian Horse farm one of the oldest continuous Arabian breeding farms in America.  Entering the estate you pass the two stone columns and Pulpit Rock Farm sign as you drive up the long driveway you have amazing views on the pasture and ag.  Rounding the corner you are introduced to the main house with beautiful front porch.  Part of the house was the original cabin of Governor Lowden that was moved to the property.  This cabin has been added onto since then.  Entering the home you have a newer kitchen that was remodeled with an eat-in area and bar style seating.  Tons of cabinet space, double oven, commercial stove.  Entering into the formal dining room it flows openly into the family room with a wood fireplace and built-in bookshelves. The first floor has a full bathroom and laundry room. Upstairs you have 4 bedrooms, one is used as a walk-in closet.  Upstairs has a full bathroom.  The guest house is a well maintained ranch home with an open flow from the galley kitchen into the dining area and large family room.  This house has two good sized bedrooms.  Off of the houses you have the 3 car garage and office area. The office has a quaint study/library, wood burning stove with limestone chimney and kitchen.  This building has a full bathroom and sleeping loft.  The centerpiece show barn (50x150) is beautiful with cypress wood siding, cathedral like ceilings and gorgeous doors.  This barn has 16 stalls. Additionally there are guest quarters attached with kitchen, bathroom, high ceilings and large stone fireplace.  It would not take much to bring this unused room back to its glory.  50x100 Mare barn with 10 stalls, 34x90 Foal barn with 10 stalls and 18x62 lean,40x90 Loafing shed, plus two more additional sheds.   Around these barns there are different fenced pasture and riding areas. This property has 68 acres of sharecropped farm ground and 62 acres of timber and trails with some nice ravines that run towards the Rock River.  Over a 1/2 mile of Rock River frontage with unique stone bluffs.  Excellent deer and turkey hunting.  This property has so many potential uses and is one of a kind.
