Small overgrown vacant wooded lot/land in a very quiet neighborhood facing Palestine Lake in Mentone, IN near Warsaw, with a nearly private lake access only a few steps away...which is just across the street (less than 50 feet from the lot). This lot has the potential to be very charming!!! Palestine Lake offers some of the best fishing around, with large bass, blue gill, and catfish. This is the longest property on Partridge Drive with 195 ft of this lot overlooking the lake along the street. The public lake access for this lot is marked "PARK" on the map I posted here and is not well known or advertised, so it is overgrown with vegetation because it is not used much. My father use to mow the public access himself because he was the only one who used it for many years when he had a fish camp on this lot. This property contains an overgrown foundation (approx 14 x 14?) and access to older utilities: electric, water, and septic. The condition of these utilities is unknown & they are not currently turned on. In addition, it is illegal to use these utilities unless you own 2 lots. This lot is more likely for someone who wants to camp off grid. The rear curved borderline of this property is currently an overgrown swampland which is NOT accessible to the water at this time, but was actually a waterfront a few years ago when the water level in this lake was higher. There is currently room to park a small camper and one vehicle on the lot. The property is very overgrown with vegetation and will require some work to clear more space for parking and camping. Buyers who go look at property should wear longs sleeves and pants if trudging through the brush due to the large amount of poison ivy and poison sumac on the property. There is also space to park 2 vehicles at the lake access directly across the street. This property would make an excellent FISH CAMP. FISHING IS AMAZING!!! Not far away, there is an additional large concrete public boat launch with a large paved parking lot & a toilet. ALL ZONING LAWS AND LEGAL USE OF UTILITIES ARE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER TO RESEARCH AT WARSAW COUNTY SEAT. PROPERTY DEED INFO: LOT 10, BLOCK 26, UNIT 4, OAK GROVE BEACH. If buyer is interested in building a permanent structure or being on the grid, an additional lot would probably be needed. The adjoining vacant lot marked #9 (along the 95 ft perimeter of lot #10) may also be researched by the buyer to see if it could be purchased from a separate owner to make a double lot for obtaining permits for these purposes. It is the seller's understanding that when owning only one lot in this neighborhood, tiny homes or structures that are to be used for permanent residence are not allowed; however, anything off grid & on wheels that is not occupied all year is legal. Buyer will be responsible for verifying this with the county seat. Seller is not responsible for any restrictions, rules, regulations, zones, or laws that would affect the buyer's plans for this property. For more information, please call or visit Warsaw County Seat and email Seller. NO LAND CONTRACTS OR RENT TO OWN. THIS PROPERTY NEEDS A LOT OF TLC BUT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE A DREAM COME TRUE FOR THE RIGHT BUYER WHO IS WILLING TO PUT SOME HARD WORK INTO IT. If this property were just closer to us, we would actually make it our own dream come true, but it is just a bit too far away from us for our busy lifestyle (we live in Kokomo). Feel free to go take a look anytime you desire and maybe try to do some fishing while you are there! I don't think you will be disappointed!

  • Fraud & Scam Awareness
    Unfortunately, there are people that will use internet sites like to run all manner of scams on users. We do all that we can to prevent the willful misuse of our platform, however; every day, the scams get more and more sophisticated. We ask that our users be cognizant of the risk and review the following basic ways to recognize and avoid being scammed.
  • Recognizing and Avoiding Scams:

    • Use secure, traceable transactions when making payments - Do not pay a deposit by wire transfer, prepaid money card, gift card, or other non-traditional payment method. Also, refuse to make "overpayments" and never enter into "handshake" deals without a contract.
    • Don't accept suspect cashier/certified checks or money orders - Banks will process and cash the fakes, then hold you responsible.
    • Never give out financial or personally identifiable information - This includes banking and credit card information, your birthdate, Social Security/Social Insurance Numbers, PayPal account etc.
    • Suspicious communications - Watch for parties communicating using poor grammar, spelling or those who send nonsensical messages. Be wary of parties that are only willing to text/email and those that will never speak on the phone or that refuse to meet in person. Generally these people will claim to be "travelling" and unavailable to talk or located in a foreign country and unable to speak other than via text or email.
    • Deals Too Good to be True - If the list price is obviously too low, or the terms are too generous as compared to the market, it’s likely a scam.
    • Don’t be pressured to act immediately - Scammers typically try to make you think a listing is in high demand in order to push you into immediate action without consulting family, friends, or financial advisors. Say no to high pressure sales tactics.
