Property description

Canoeing is within driving distance as well. Cave scuba diving is also a short distance away. Excellent vacation opportunity to enjoy a farm experience. Growing crops 100' behind the back door as well as across the road from the front door. Great military temporary living, get-a-way for multi-generational family gatherings, church groups or other reunion opportunities. Explore at will, 237 acre pine tree farm with 3/4 mile of wilderness stream running though the farm. Habitat for deer, wild pigs, bobcats, coyotes, beaver, otter, wild turkeys, turtles, gophers, native reptiles and fish in the beaver ponds.
Great opportunity for hiking and exploring.

Children require proper supervision when away from the home and yard area. Combined very large game/living room/dining room with open beam ceiling and a very large fireplace with a fireplace stove inserted. Large eat in kitchen with a large built in table & propane wall heater. Smaller LR off the kitchen we used for TV viewing. MBR has built in drawers & shelves show on each side of the very comfortable king sized bed which has a firm mattress. Baths have been updated. 2nd bath newly remodeled with porcelain tile floor. The 3100 square feet includes the downstairs area only. Home has a king sized bed in the master bedroom, a queen sized memory foam bed in the front bedroom, a queen sized pillow top bed in the West middle bedroom, a queen sized pillow top bed in the south bed room, a queen sized sofa bed in the sitting room, a double bed is in the front door entrance way, a twin sized day bed with a twin sided trundle in the living room, a built in table with 8 chairs in the kitchen, a large pool table in the game room and a rattan bar and five bar stools in the game room.

What I love about the home:
Large eat in kitchen with large built in table has always caused guests to migrate to kitchen table. Kitchen has a fantastic number of cabinets. Satsuma orange tree at E end of screened in porch has great seedless, easy to peel, delicious oranges. Many pecan trees in yard along with three American chestnut trees. Very large brick country home that sits high and dry on a hill, great for entertaining and a large family. Metal roof is much more durable than shingles in wind storm conditions and has a much longer service life. Has its own well and septic systems.
