Country Acreage And Pond Next To Lake Darling State Park


Become the next door neighbor to Lake Darling State Park on this country acreage that includes a house, outbuildings, and pond. Enjoy how convenient it is to own a property so close to a State Park, or steward the land and establish your own farmstead. Without question, this listing will appeal to nearly anyone who desires a fine acreage in the countryside.

The gorgeous Lake Darling State Park lies directly across the road. It offers loads of fun for all ages with its miles of shoreline, hiking trails, swimming beach, playground, and cabins. Hunting is not allowed there, and big bucks frequently walk across the road from its sanctuary to this listed acreage.

The as-is home has 1,408 sq. ft. of living space with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Bass, bluegill, and catfish reside in the 2 acre +/- pond, which has a nice mowed lane across the dam for easy access to cast a line. Surrounding the pond are native grasses and sapling hardwoods from the 4 Conservation Reserve Program acres, which compensates the property owner in exchange for promoting soil and water conservation with wildlife habitat.

There are also 2.5 acres +/- of fertile tillable land, which gives you space for farming, gardening, or even planting a food plot. No doubt this property could be tricked-out for the whitetails that walk across the road from the no-hunting State Park.
