Summary: Welcome to your dream property in southern Rusk County, Texas! This 71.515-acre tract boast a well-appointed, turn-key, 3BR/2Bath brick veneer residence that was recently upgraded along with a newly constructed metal garage and carport. The hilltop constructed home provides incredible sunsets with views of pastureland surrounded by a mature stand of timber. The impressive topography offers approximately 90 feet of elevation change with the highest elevations being along the US Highway 84 frontage. With over 1,400 feet of frontage along the paved highway, the property offers endless possibilities for sub-division if desired.
Improvements: The residence is reported by the appraisal district to have approximately 1,581 square feet of gross living area and features a very flexible and efficient design. With large front and rear covered porches, the central focus of the home is the large open living area that features a brick wood-burning fireplace, a built-in entertainment cabinet and conveniently transitions into the dining area with a custom built-in buffet / bar. Adjacent to the dining room is the large well-appointed kitchen with new appliances. Convenient backyard access is made through the laundry / mud room as well as the kitchen. The north portion of the home houses the spacious Master Suite, featuring a his and her bathroom with a double sink vanity, a separate private tub/shower and toilet area with a large adjoining walk-in closet with ample space and shelving. The three large master bedroom windows offer excellent views of your own piece of heaven. The south side of the home has two bedrooms, one on each side of the second full bath with ample linen storage. Over the previous two years, the current owner has replaced the kitchen appliances, plumbing fixtures and installed a new composition roof. The home also features a heat pump central air/heat system so there is very little to no deferred maintenance for the next owner. Located adjacent to the home is a newly constructed metal garage and carport that was constructed on a concrete slab. Other improvements include a pole barn, equipment storage building and an additional storage building with electricity and plumbing. The barn is reported to be approximately 2,160 SF with galvanized tin siding, built-in stalls and a feed room. The equipment shed is approximately 500 SF with galvanized tin roof and siding on three sides with a dirt floor. The storage building is approximately 385 SF with wood siding, a metal roof and is constructed with a wood floor on wood beams and has electricity and plumbing in place (3/4 bath). With some work, this would make a great guest house, craft workshop or office.
Land Characteristics: The property is slightly irregular in shape, being slightly deeper than wide. The southern portion of the property is the highest elevation and has long frontage along US Hwy 84 (over 1,400 feet). The property slopes down from the high of approximately 590’ ASL to an approximate low of 500’ ASL which is in the northernmost portions of the property. The property gently slopes from front to rear but also offers multiple draws that along with the mature stand of timber offer unique visual appeal when touring the timber portion. The topo map details a spring that runs from south to north in the western portion of the property. There are multiple areas along this stretch of the property where springs and seeps are evident. These areas would likely be suitable for the development of a pond or ponds. The southwestern portion of the property is a fenced pasture area of just over 10 acres with the remainder being mixed, mature timber. Many of the ridges throughout the property are predominantly Pine timber which has marketable value. The bulk of the draws and valleys have excellent, mature hardwood timber with a fully developed canopy that offers a relatively clean understory in most areas. Multiple trails have been cut through the wooded portions of the property and two feeders and feed pens are in place, so the property is ready to hunt. The most impressive features that must been seen to be appreciated are the dozens of mature White Oak and other mast bearing trees that deer hunters everywhere love to see.
