Timbered Family Retreat
Classic family retreat or full time residence featuring mixed use residential, recreational, timberland on 69 acre property in Wood county just 1.5 hours from DFW. The main house boasts approximately 4000 sq. ft. of custom living space that was completely renovated in 2003 and features 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, fireplace,gourmet kitchen, large living area, and many extra touches. From the serene covered back porch the family can splash and play in a large swimming pool and there's a separate 1400 sq. ft. pool house with sleeping quarters, bathroom, full kitchen, ice maker, and large open living space with an oversized fireplace. Water is supplied from a 500' water well in the Wilcox Aquifer (same aquifer utilized by Ozarka) and two other water wells exist for additional uses on the property.
There is a large 30' X 50' metal barn/outbuilding on a concrete slab for storage and equipment plus a covered pad for RV storage.
The land is primarily wooded with some open pasture near the house, but mostly hardwood timber with approximately 12 ac of planted pine timber (potential income source). Land is mostly flat, but has some roll in the hardwood forest.
Wildlife is plentiful with whitetail deer, hogs, and various small game utilizing the timbered area as a sanctuary. Several good locations for food plots and feeders to enhance hunting and recreational potential. Trails have been maintained for ATV trails, bird watching, and for ease of traveling the property.
The property boasts seclusion with massive oak trees, but easy access with road frontage on Hwy 154 just 8 miles from Quitman, TX and the highly ranked Quitman ISD school district.
Whether a family retreat in the lush East TX surroundings or your full time residence this is a must see oasis.
