Description: What a showplace! Property of this size and quality are hard to find. Nestled in a beautiful sleepy little valley in the heart of the Ouachita Mountains, the property offers a very unique blend of pasture and woodland with abundant wildlife of deer, turkey, squirrel, duck, rabbit, bear and the occasional wild hog. Cheerful and friendly neighbors always ready to lend a helping hand.
State Hwy 80 divides the property. A unique blend of topography with level lands, beautiful ridges, ponds and creeks. With 1.2 miles of highway frontage owners never have to leave the privacy of their vehicle in order to check the cattle- Drive By Convenience.
The total north side consists of apprx. 380 acres of which 174.8 acres was planted in a combination of pine and hardwood in Feb of 2004. The plantation is placed in the Government 15 year CRP program and receives apprx $7900 annually. This annual payment will be transferable to new owners. Timber cruise reports to the sellers show very good growth records on the plantation with the first thinning due at age 12 (Year 2016) and an accelerated cutting at age 16 (Year 2020) instead of a traditional harvest cut. The balance is made up of marketable timber, a large live creek (Dutch Creek) and apprx 40 acres in pastureland and has the added bonus of joining the National Forest Lands. The total north side of the property can be purchased for $680,200.00.
The balance of the property located on the south side joins National Forest lands allowing unlimited access to thousands of the Ouachita Mtns for exploring by horesback, ATV, hiking and more. Large portion pastureland which is currently being leased for cattle and the balance in marketable timber which is ready to harvest. You will also find nice ponds which are stocked and waiting for you and your fishing pole.
The wonderful spacious layout of the ranch house includes newly refinished hardwood flooring, large bedrooms and working fireplace & CH/A. The home was completely renovated in 2008 to include the improvements listed below. The new shop could easily be converted to living quarters as guest house or living quarters for a ranch hand.
