The Property is composed of 507.06, more or less, acres located in western Yell County, Arkansas, approximately 10 miles southwest of Danville, on State Highway 80. This land straddles Dutch Creek and its associated floodplains, in both the Arkansas Valley and Ouachita Mountains Ecoregions, and is located in the northernmost subdivision of the Ouachita Mountains known as the Fourche Mountains.
The Property contains a mixture of bottomland hardwood forests, riparian zones, upland pine hardwood forests, and open hay pastures. The tract contains perennial, ephemeral, and intermittent streams which converge with Dutch Creek. The primary vegetative cover type within the pastures is a mix of native and improved grasses maintained for cattle grazing and hay production.
The bottomland soils are gravelly fine sandy loams, silt loams, loams, and fine sandy loams. These are well-drained and moderately well-drained, level to gently sloping, deep, loamy soils; on terraces and flood plains associated with the primary floodplain of Dutch Creek.
The upland soils are similar, having well-drained sandy loams and gravelly fine sandy loams, with some areas of rocky and stony soils in the northern forested sections of the Property.
Woody species characteristic of the Ouachita Mountains and the Arkansas Valley ecological regions of Arkansas are found along the riparian zones and forested areas on the tract. These include, but are not limited to: Shumard oak, boxelder, water hickory, sugarberry, green ash, shortleaf pine (Pinus echinata), pin oak, honeylocust), sweetgum, sycamore, eastern cottonwood, overcup oak, willow oak, black willow, red maple, and American elm.
Adjoining the Ouachita National Forest, the aesthetic views of Dutch Creek Mountain and Petit Jean Mountain are noteworthy. The landscape is valley farmlands, forested ridges, isolated mountains and nearby lakes such as Blue Mountain Lake and Lake Nimrod.
258.1 acres of the bottomland are conserved as a wetland mitigation project, and contain 27.8 acres of wildlife management area. The attached map details the location of these wildlife areas. Standard recreational hunting practices such as mowing, disked/plowed food plots, feeders, vehicular traffic, and hunting blinds are acceptable land uses within the wildlife management areas under the conservation easement. No alteration of the hydrology of the area in the mitigation section is allowed. Within the conserved areas, no tree, shrub or grass cutting or alteration is allowed outside of the wildlife management areas.
Outside of the conserved areas, there are no restrictions in terms of land usage.
The property also features a cozy 3 bedroom 3.5 bath home with a stone exterior and metal roofing. This makes for a nice residence of ranch home and is nestled upon a hilltop with a scenic mountain view.
