Once a closed canopy woodland, this property was meticulously sculpted to its current state with livestock production in mind. The 367.91 acres is about 85% improved pasture interspersed with a few heavily wooded areas for loafing and shelter. The rolling topography with over 90 feet of elevation change provides many potential home sites with long-range views and seclusion. Dotted across the pasture are giant Loblolly Pine trees, which also make up most of the tree cover on the property. Other trees present on the property include Live Oak, Post Oak, Water Oak, Hickory, Blackjack Oak, Eastern Red Cedar, Cottonwood, Black Willow, American Elm, Cedar Elm, and Mesquite. The shrub layer is comprised of Yaupon, American Beautyberry, Green Briar and Dewberry vine. The grass layer is a mixture of both improved and native grasses with the dominant species being Coastal Bermuda. While the past and current use of the property has been for livestock production, whitetail deer and turkey are readily observed.
The grazing rights have been leased to an adjacent neighbor for over a decade, however, can be terminated with 45 days notice.
The property is accessed by a 40 foot deeded easement that begins on Gotier Trace Rd and enters the property in the NE corner. At the time of publication, an adjoining tract that could serve as an additional point is currently on the open market. See Listing Agent for details.
There are 3 gorgeous lakes ranging from 1, 2, and 2.5 acres. All are stocked with Largemouth Bass and Bluegill.
The West Fork of Gravelly Creek meanders across the upper third of the property in a NW to SE direction. The owners report that the creek normally runs year-round and also has several deeper pools that hold water for long periods.
There is one functioning water well with a solar power supply. Capacity of this well is unknown at the time.
Perimeter fencing along 3 sides with traditional 5 strand barbwire in fair condition. The southern boundary is partially fenced with hot wire. Electric fencing internally is used to create 3 pastures for rotational grazing.
The sellers believe to own the entire mineral estate and may convey a portion subject to negotiation.
The property is currently qualified under the Agricultural tax valuation.
