Located on the northwest corner of the ranch, overlooking the 8+ acre lake is the house surrounded by large hardwoods nestled in a park-like setting. The recreational possibilities are abundant on the ranch as it satisfies most year-round enthusiasts.

The ranch is quiet and serene with privacy from all directions.

Improvements: A gravel drive makes way to the 4 bed, 2 bath, 1,749SF home settled on a slight high point overlooking the 8+ acre lake on the northwest corner of the property. Hardwood trees and a park-like-setting surround the home that is welcoming for both the owners and visitors alike. The home is cozy and well-trimmed providing a comfortable getaway from the week's hustle and bustle. The home features a multi-level layout, covered front porch, wood burning stove, central air/heat with room for everyone.
In addition to the house, there is a 30 times 40 wood-framed shop on a slab where there's plenty of room for ATV's, boats, hunting gear and tools. Extended from the shop is another 1,200SF concrete slab perfect for parking trailers and/or a guest's RV.
The ranch also features additional homesite if the new owner would like to build additional structures overlooking either of the two lakes.
Surface Water: The ranch features a beautiful 8.1 +/- Acre lake, fully stocked with Florida Largemouth Bass, and Bluegill and Coppernose Bream. On the East side of the property you'll find a 5.8+/- Acre lake also stocked the same as the larger lake. Both lakes have been managed by a reputable ranch pond & lake management company since they've been built (2006 & 2008 respectively) and currently receive 3-4 treatments a year to ensure the lakes maintain their maximum potential. This helps serve the owners and guests alike with year-round recreation and provides stunning views from the house. There are a few other potential lake locations located around the ranch if the future owner so desires to develop them.
Wildlife & Fisheries: The topography, diverse, and thick cover provides an excellent habitat for deer and other animals. The ranch features ~160 acres of timber, 50 acres of that being planted loblolly pine (planted in ~1999), along with rolling terrain and plenty of native forage for deer and other wildlife. The native timber consists of a variety of red oak, white oak, pine, elm, black gum, sweet gum, cedar, and hickory. The property's water assets provide a good opportunity for waterfowl and fishing for trophy bass and bluegill. Over the last decade the property has rarely been hunted which makes is a haven for native white-tailed deer and could provide the new owner with exceptional hunting opportunities.
