Property Description

This property is a unique opportunity to take the established reputation of Rancho La Esperanza and expand it into a highly profitable business. Conveniently located outside of Rochelle you have quick access to I-39 that will get you to I-88 and I-90 quickly. The infrastructure is already built up and ready for the next owner. Sitting off the road you have the main house. The house has been nicely remodeled over the years. This isn't your run of the mill farmhouse, it has all the amenities. Walking in off the breeze way you have tons of room to take off your boots and coats with plenty of storage. Walking in the home you have an oversized kitchen with large island. The kitchen flows nicely into the dining and family room. The main floor has a large bathroom and master bedroom with walk-in closet. Upstairs you have 3 very good sized bedrooms and another full bathroom. Heating this home can be done by a forced air furnace or by an outdoor wood burner. Off the main home you have a detached 24x40 garage. Then back past the homesite you have multiple outbuildings. One of the storage buildings is 30x65 with a lean on each side for additional storage. The 53x105 stable barn has 15 stalls, a staging area, hay mow. Currently this space is used for boarding horses. Back past the stable you have the riding ring with audience stands and seating. There is an enclosed stage for bands and entertainment. There is a 60x100 pavilion with beautiful timber beams and chandeliers that provide rustic elegance. The pavilion has been used from parties and quinceanera's. Multiple paddocks for grazing horses. Zoned ag with a special permit that allows for rodeo events. Rochelle is an emerging market with an increase in jobs, restaurants, and shopping.
