Presently, two land plots are for sale in Ione. The first is a .62-acre lot with 125 feet of Pend Oreille River frontage. This untouched residential plot has limitless developing potential. For instance, with so much river frontage, this area would be perfect for a cabin with a river-facing deck. Moreover, there are 55 miles of water recreation. Thus, a boat dock would be useful here. This property is also minutes away from NFS trails, the Serendipity Golf Course, and the Ione airport. Another property highlight is the utilities are preinstalled, and hookup fees are included in the purchase price.
The second parcel for sale in Ione is a 35.93-acre lot for $110,000, or roughly $500 per month with a 30-year, fixed-interest mortgage plus a sizeable down payment. This affordable property is truly nature at its finest with tons of forested acreage, the Cedar Creek running through the land, and an abundance of wildlife. Though only a few miles from suburbia and Ione’s bustling downtown area, this vast amount of acreage is somewhat secluded. Therefore, this area is perfect for a private getaway cabin or hunting grounds. This property does have a hidden driveway/roadway; however, there are no preinstalled utilities.
