Home built in the 90’s by a WW2 Vet as a Y2K homesite on 59 acres overlooking a 1-acre pond. The first built was a 2-car garage apartment with kitchen and bathroom 750 sq. Ft) + 34’x23’ carport on front. Then the man built the main house. 1,680 sq. Ft heated) with 2,340 under roof including front and rear porch (but not including garage carport and shop.)

A simple 3-bedroom 1.5 bath with open floor plan. Bedrooms are on 3 corners. The kitchen windows over look creek bottom while at sink and rear picture windows view the back yard and pond. Central air and heat but the fireplace buck stove has a heat exchanger in the attic piped to every room and it heats the whole house. The garage is attached to house by a covered walk.

Now for the details. The main house has a front porch (18’x8’) and a huge rear porch across entire back, 43’x-12’ ft made from welded 2.78 steel pipe. The garage has a 34’x23’ covered carport with 4” pipe and 6” I beam. Attached to side of garage is a huge 30’ x 43’ shop with a tall RV shed or huge work shop with overhead storage shelves and built in cabinets. Also, on the rear of the garage apartment is a small rear porch 13’x15’ overlooking the pond as well. The entire house is solid concrete walls with the main two interior walls also concrete. Every single door including pantry is solid core thick wood doors. The main shower was built as a storm shelter with 2ft thick walls and a 3 ft thick concrete ceiling. All electrical and phone jack outlets in walls are in conduit so it is easy to run wire if ever needed. The front entry gate is 6 ft tall and built as a security entrance. 9 acres is totally fenced and cross fenced for goats with many gates. Property has 160-acre hunting ranch to East, 350-acre family hunting ranch to the south and to the west is a RR track for the boundary.

Only 3 neighbors on the entire 2-mile road. From town the road is paved to my driveway and the back way out is gravel which deters people from cutting through.  The entire house was built by the previous owner and rock solid from foundation to roof. We installed a metal roof 2018 on the house and new singles on garage in 2015. We have spent 17k on fence the past 3 years alone.

We raise KiKo goats as food and can include them and the livestock guardian dogs as well. Work and family circumstances are the ONLY reason I am selling as I had planned to retire here till death. I absolutely love this home and property mainly because of the “safe” aspect. Easy access to town only 5 miles away, low crime and a road that is easily blockaded if need be….. A large pipe pile with misc. steel building supplies is also included.  A 2015-16 40hp Mahindra with grapple and many implements can also be bought with property for a little extra.

There are so many good perks about the property and house I can’t mention them all. There is NOT ONE SINGLE crack in any of the slabs from the porches to the bedrooms. The family told me he welded sucker-rod together in the slab and has 24” footings. I never found prints. Also is a little green house that has a great tool shed and a firewood shed. A 300 ft well has beautiful tasty safe water and 2- 250gal propane tanks. All water faucets on house and Well shed have protective winter covers easily installed or removed by 1 wingnut.

The 5’ rock wall in rear has concrete steps with stainless steel rail. Also, there is a beautiful rock wall entry circle drive. We removed all the pretty bushes that were here because they are TOXIC to goats and we choose to let the goats eat the grass instead of mowing. The front 30 acres is mixed timber with 80 percent pine, but the rear 30 acres is a 100’ + tall very old virgin hardwood bottom that boast dear hunting leases dream of, and hence why there are three hunting clubs around us. The big creek is called Beech Creek and it is a year-round flowing creek that dumps into black bayou. I could go an and on about property, but you just must SEE it to understand.

All property lines are well painted, and all corners are well marked. There IS a recent land survey with NO issues. More fence would allow goats to “clean up” all underbrush also keeping trees healthy and fire chances down. We would be willing to help new owner learn goat husbandry if they decided to keep the operation going.
