This beautiful home is nestled in the heart of the Ouachita National Forest. 20 minutes from Lake Ouachita, 5 minutes from biking, floating, hiking, hunting and fishing in the back yard.
The property is an outdoors person's dream. The home is in a working cattle farm which lies in a valley surrounded by the Ouachita National Forest and Muddy Creek Wildlife Management Area. Deer and small game are prevalent on the farm, with the occasional black bear on the property. Hunting, fishing, hiking, biking and boating are all within five minutes, and Lake Ouachita is only twenty minutes away. Fishing is only seconds away, as the 8 acre pond in the backyard is stocked with bass, crappie, bluegills and catfish. Guests have the run of the entire home, pool and spa, as well as the opportunity to fish in the large pond.
Kitchen is fully stocked with pots and pans, bakeware and utensils, as well as sporting a 48" Viking Range with grill. This up-to-date kitchen lets you prepare meals as if you were in your own home. All bathrooms are stocked with towels, and linens are provided. Three bedrooms have king beds and three have queens. Four bedrooms have their own bathroom.
The heart pine flooring throughout the home was salvaged from two local 1800's barns, all lumber in the home (except for trusses) was milled from pine timber on the farm, and the stone for the foundation and the chimney also is from the farm.
The living area offers a recliner and sectional leather sofa, a flat screen 50" tv with DirecTV and plenty of room for relaxing or entertaining.
