Bellwood Recreational Acres

Bellwood, Nebraska


Located just south of Columbus, Nebraska is one of the most diverse tracts of recreational land being offered for sale today! There are +/- 483 acres of land located just south of the Platte River that provide a mixed bag of hunting opportunities for those looking for a short commute from the Omaha, Columbus and Lincoln areas. The property features large areas of grasslands and timbered pasture that have recently been thinned out to provide travel corridors for large game passing through the area or to bed down. There is a 10 acre private sand pit lake stocked with largemouth bass crappie, bluegill and catfish. Ride Jet Skis, build a cabin and setup tree stands on the west and north side of the shoreline for future deer hunting. There is a running creek that flows year round through the center of the property providing open water for migrating ducks. You can enjoy hunting whitetail deer, turkey, ducks & geese while earning cash rent income from the tenant farmer grazing cattle and paying cash rent to farm the 40 acres of irrigated farmland. 2021 total cash rent will be $37,705.00. East of the irrigation pivot is a favorable place to dig and install a flood pit for the waterfowl hunting enthusiasts. Bonus: The Morel Mushroom harvest was plentiful this year. The seller is wanting to commit to a long term cash rent agreement with future Buyer(s). This land is very secluded and is located far enough away from busy roads to allow for a quiet day of recreational fun. Prospective Buyers are welcome to purchase the entire parcel or purchase a portion of this property to fit their specific wants and needs. This land will also be offered in smaller tracts at specific prices. This land is currently being surveyed and all legal descriptions will be created upon survey completion. The current crop on the tillable farmland this year is soybeans. Contact Butler County Planning Department for cabin or building structure questions and permitting process. Now is the time to purchase your own private place to play and create memories with family and friends! Note: The tree logging piles that remain on the property in certain areas will be disposed of or burned by the Seller at an appropriate time of the year as not to interrupt the hunting season. The cattle will also be removed as to not interrupt the late fall hunting season. Please contact Brad Zach at 402-290-7227 for questions or to schedule showings.
