Megan Bengtson, listing agent and a realtor with PJ Morgan, said close proximity to the city and breathtaking scenic views are incredibly rare to come by in this area, which is why this property is so sought after. “It is very peaceful and you really feel immersed in wildlife once you step foot on the land,” Bengtson said. “It is such a luxurious piece of property, and it offers a refreshing way to reconnect with one’s self and the outdoors. It is a perfect home for nature enthusiasts, avid hunters, or just people who wish to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life.”

Despite its low-key locale, an entirely paved road leads directly to the gated acreage’s driveway, which then winds through a lush canopy of trees. On the land sits two separate homes, as well as a stocked pond equipped with a large sandy beach ideal for fishing. Both the exterior and interior of the main house possess a cabin-like appearance perfectly fitting for the landscape. The home features three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a detached four-car garage. Large windows line the front and back sitting rooms to allow multiple vantage points to see the extraordinary scenery—truly inviting the outside elements into the home. Fortunately, window coverings are not necessary in this secluded sanctuary, roughly 15 minutes from the metro.

The 1,792 sq. ft. two-bedroom and two-bathroom guest house is rustic with a cozy, comfortable interior. A majestic stone fireplace is a focal point in the open concept space and an enclosed sun porch is perfect for wildlife watching. It, too, sits close to the water, offering remarkable views, especially from the second-floor primary suite balcony. A deck and fire pit allow for easy outdoor entertaining or quiet nights relaxing at home. Both houses are heated and equipped with central air, along with a sprinkler system to maintain the ground’s immaculate appearance.

Dreamy sunrises and sunsets over the riverfront and wide-open green space can be seen from all angles of the property. The land, which features a duck blind, is a playground for hunters of all types of wildlife, including deer, turkey, and duck. Modern conveniences in this wooded terrain make the hunt extra enjoyable, such as ATV trails and easily accessible roads that twist throughout the well-manicured property.

Bengtson, who has worked in the real estate sector since graduating from the University of Nebraska Lincoln in 2005, currently serves as the 2022 President for the Omaha Area Board of REALTORS®. In addition to helping clients list their properties or find their dream homes, she said she enjoys being involved in the community, which has been impactful to both her professional career and personal life. Entering into leadership roles is Bengtson’s way of giving back to an industry and community that she said has given so much to her. With every transaction, including this unique property, Bengtson aims to be a trusted source for clients and potential homeowners. “Communication is key in this business and I want to be a resource and help in any way possible,” Bengtson said. “I hope to create an exciting and positive experience for everyone involved in the process.”

According to Bengtson, this piece of land is waiting for its new homeowners to take advantage of all its natural beauty. For more information, or to schedule a private showing of this exquisite property, contact Megan Bengtson, realtor with PJ Morgan, at (402) 740-5519 or visit
