Property Description:

This improved 51+/- acre property checks almost every possible box for a fishing, hunting, and relaxing retreat, yet it is just 6.5 miles from Timpson. Driving through the new automatic double gate entrance of the property, you'll first be met by an old, charming red barn. That barn has character and history. But, other than the barn and the old-growth trees, that's about the only part of the property not improved in some way for the better. The well-established two-acre lake has been there for some 40 years and is stocked with bass and catfish. You can easily view this lake from the covered porch or inside the comfort of the nearby home or even take a stroll across the newly built dock to get some fishing in. Adding to the serenity and remote feeling of the property are the thick and mature trees that include a mix of some massive live oaks, pine, and many other tree species. Many well-thought-out trails showcase the property's beauty through these woods, like the rolling terrain, wet weather creeks, and beautiful lake. Nestled in the middle of the property is a highly improved 2/2 cabin.

Rarely will you see a cabin of this quality with so many upgrades and finishes. Access to the cabin is through another automatic gate. A unique and high-quality hog fence surrounds the cabin and allows one to partition off the front of the cabin from the back should you want or need to. The cabin's exterior is wrapped in log wood and stone and topped off with a metal roof. Virtually every part of the interior has been completely updated. The bathrooms have new tile, light fixtures, plumbing fixtures, mirrors, and sinks. The kitchen has a farm sink, wrapping butcher block countertop, new appliances, light fixtures, ceiling fans, and shiplap ceilings. The laundry room has a new full-size washer and dryer. Even the interior doors of the cabin are updated with solid wood doors. Light fixtures, door hardware, and more are updated throughout the cabin. Also within the fenced cabin area is a large metal building with a rolling gate. You will not find another property in the area with land of such natural beauty and a cabin possessing so many quality upgrades. Add in the lake and the manageable size of the property, and you have a place that must be seen to be appreciated. Call us for more information and to schedule a tour of this property today!
