Location: The Moore Farm is located approximately 7.5 miles north of Marshall, Texas, at 549 Blackjack Rd. Jefferson, TX. The farm is also conveniently located 6 miles from the town of Jefferson, 28 miles from Longview, and only 160 miles east of Dallas.
Overview: Moore Farm is a beautiful 38+/- acre rural homesite nestled in a very desirable area of northern Harrison County. The property consists of rolling hills, pristine mixed hardwood and pine timber, and an incredible 2.3+ acre pond. The surrounding property consists mostly of mature growth timber, with some meandering open areas between the house and pond. Surrounded by similar homesites, larger ranches, and within 15 miles of both Lake O' The Pines and Caddo Lake, recreational opportunities abound both on and off the property.
Improvements: There is a beautiful, custom-built 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath, 2,839+/- SF home located on the southern portion of the property. The 2-story brick home was built in 1993 and has been well-maintained since, having updated the two interior A/C units as well as two water heaters, the roof, and several other items. The kitchen features terracotta flooring, plenty of cabinet space, and an abundance of natural light from the windows with views of the lake. All electric appliances with a gas stovetop. Natural gas heats both hot water heaters, the stove top, and both central heat units. The living area features a large brick fireplace, high vaulted ceilings, and large windows providing more beautiful views outside. French doors lead out to the back patio where there is plenty of room to sit, relax, or entertain for the evening. Adjacent to the living area is a formal dining room. The master bedroom is large with walk-in closets and sitting areas on each side of the bed. The master bath has a jacuzzi tub, walk in shower, double vanities, and a toilet area. The two additional bedrooms downstairs have a Jack and Jill bathroom, each bedroom with plenty of closet space. Lastly there is a fourth bedroom upstairs with its own full bathroom.
There is also a 1,200 SF metal framed, insulated shop with two roll-up doors, a 14'x40' lean-too, with concrete floors and power. It provides additional storage and workspace and the lean-too gives you plenty of space to park equipment or ATV's. There is also a 20'x25' pavilion near the lake. The covered concrete slab is the perfect place for the smoker or BBQ pit, a family table, and gathering space near the lake. Along the lake you'll also find a steel frame fishing pier and a bridge to access the island in the lake.
Trees, grass, forbs: The property's sandy loam soils foster healthy timber stands as well as native grasses and forbs throughout the property. Towering mature hardwood timber dominates the landscape along with mature shortleaf and loblolly pine. The timber has not been cut or harvested in the last several decades providing scenic and productive wildlife habitat. Tree cover consists of a healthy stand of mixed hardwoods including a variety of red and white oaks, black gum, elm, hickory, dogwood, walnut and some pine. Native forbs and browse such as pokeweed, beautyberry, trumpet creeper, and green briar are also plentiful and provide robust habitat for wildlife.
Water: The property has a beautiful lake just north of the house, approx. 2.3+/- acres in size as well as an additional pond, 0.14 ac in size, and a seasonal creek running along the western edge of the property. There is also a water available from the Carrizo Wilcox Aquifer for an additional source of water.
Topography: Rolling to sloped terrain with approximately 50+ feet of elevation change provide a scenic view of the lake, while the timber maintains privacy from all other directions. The house is arranged on the higher, somewhat level ground, while the timber encompasses the majority of the watersheds and hillsides. Such diversity offers the landowner countless options for recreational opportunities and possibly an additional building site.
Wildlife and fisheries: This property has been not hunted in over 30 years. It has never been leased and has been managed in such a manor to provide the new owner with a turnkey recreational property. There is an abundance of deer in this part of Harrison County and plenty of other wildlife species including waterfowl for recreational enjoyment. The 2.3+/- acre pond fishes well for bass, crappie and bream and is easily accessible from the house.
Easements: Two natural gas lines cross the property. One along the far east boundary and one along the far west boundary.
Utilities: Electricity is provided by Panola Harrison Electric and runs from the south boundary into the home site on the property. Centerpoint Energy provides the natural gas. City water is provided by Woodlawn Water Supply.
