LOCATION: Liberty Pines is approximately 95 miles East of Dallas, just East of Quitman, Texas on the South side of Hwy 154, near the desirable Liberty Community. From Dallas, travel East on I-30 to Sulphur Springs, Texas. From Sulphur Springs, travel South on Hwy 154 to Quitman, Texas. From Quitman, continue East on Hwy 154 approximately 5 miles to the gated entry on the South side of Hwy 154.
TERRAIN: Majestic pine trees line Hwy 154 near the entrance, sheltering the 3.5+/- acre fishing lake in the front pasture of the property. The topography variance is dramatic, with nearly 60 feet of elevation change from the Northern entry to the Southern hilltop where the home is located. Liberty Pines features lush Bermuda grass pastures and sandy loam soils which are highly productive for hay and cattle operation. Along the Northwest corner of the property is Buck Creek, a beautiful tree lined seasonal creek. Additional tree cover consists mostly of manicured oak, pine, pecan and elm trees which are found throughout the property's boundaries.
COUNTRY HOME: The two story ranch-style home was carefully constructed in 2008 with utilities being run underground from Hwy 154 to the hilltop home-site. House features include three bedrooms, four bathrooms, formal dining room, great room, spacious kitchen, game room, study, full utility room and a large three car garage with a work area. The house's impressive finish out provides high ceilings, granite countertops, French doors leading to an outdoor brick patio with a fire pit and outdoor cooking area, and much more! The huge front porch offers a serene setting for sunsets in the large rocking chairs. Behind the house is a smaller pond with a recently constructed fishing pier for kids to fish or to make one last cast before dinner. In the front circular driveway, there is an irrigated flower garden making the drive up appeal to the house even more impressive. The house's location is away from the highway on a large hill overlooking the entire property and its current condition is immaculate.
OTHER IMPROVEMENTS: A secure electric gated entry with pipe fencing and lighted brick columns allows access to the all-weather paved road which leads up a hill to the custom home. The perimeter five strand barbed wire fencing is in excellent condition.
LAKE/FISHERIES: The constant level, spring fed fishing lake is approximately 3.5 acres in size. The lake is stocked with bass, bream, baitfish and catfish. The owner reports excellent fishing for anglers of all levels. The dam appears to be in excellent condition and the water clarity is ideal. Lake Fork is approximately 9 miles West of Liberty Pines, with a boat ramp on Hwy 154 which fronts this property.
WILDLIFE: Songbirds and squirrels are plentiful year-round. In the winter there are plenty of ducks on the fishing lake in the shallow water. Whitetail deer and hogs are seen in the woods along Buck Creek.
UTILITIES: All utility lines are underground. Electricity is provided by Wood County Electric and water comes from Jones Water Supply Company.
TAXES: The property is Ag-Exempt and the taxes are estimated to be $3,200 per year.
