This property in northeastern Nacogdoches County features really nice views of the Attoyac River valley, 145 acres of pastures on rolling hills, a picturesque pond, 48 acres of woods and frontage on the Attoyac River. This land will support cattle operations, provide a secluded area for a residence as well as provide outstanding recreational opportunities. Located a half hour from Nacogdoches or ten minutes from Garrison, two sides of this Property are readily accessed on two separate county roads (Cooper Road CR 282 and Vim Road CR 285).

Offering uplands and bottomlands in a delightful combination of forest and field, this property has about 140 acres of uplands and 63 acres of bottomland. There are twenty acres of mixed hardwood-pine forests around the 2.5-acre main pond and two smaller associated ponds. Woods along the River on the east boundary and along the narrow creek drains on the hillsides provide useful wildlife edge habitat, as well as provide an appealing look to the hilly pastures leading down to the Attoyac bottomlands. The West Woods is a delightful, open-understory forest along the western branch and boundary.

From a recreational standpoint, this land offers hunting, pond and river fishing, ATV riding, observing wildlife or just enjoying the outstanding views to the east across the Attoyac River bottoms. The hunting opportunities would be diverse on this Property. During site visits, I made direct observations of ducks, Wilsons snipe, whitetail deer and squirrel combined with hog sign in the bottomlands.

This land is currently supporting cattle under a non-binding verbal arrangement with a neighboring landowner; a new owner will be free to make their own arrangements. There is a relatively new section of hog-wire fence at the foot of the upland slope; the exact condition or reach of this fence is not known but it appears to be at least a good start in managing feral hogs; some additional hog-wire fencing was observed in the cross-fencing. Cross fencing probably needs maintenance, but it appears that with some work that the Property can be divided up fairly readily. The corrals and pens are no longer in operable condition. There are four small ponds and one 2.5 acre pond beside the river frontage to provide livestock water.

The approximately 52 acres of Marietta soils in the river bottom offer some of the highest-fertility in our region according to the USDA NRCS soils survey. The lower Mantachie soils cover the wettest 17 acres of the Property along the river channels and sloughs, providing valuable wetland habitat for wildlife, as well as winter-time waterfowl / Wilsons snipe hunting. The balance of the Property has good upland fine sandy loams that are well-drained due to the rolling terrain. While most of the Property is in open pastureland, these soils and this site would make for excellent pine and hardwood forestland, as well.

The native forests on this property have an assortment of species including loblolly pine, white oak, ash, shortleaf pine, water oak, black oak, sweetgum, southern red oak, American elm, Florida maple, American holly, cherrybark red oak, southern red oak, black cherry, mulberry and hornbeam. In addition to these overcup oak, bitter pecan, pawpaw and blackgum are several of the species found in the bottomland areas.

This is a legacy property that once helped support a dairy farm. There is a roughly 70 ft. by 60 ft. pole barn located 400 feet inside the West Gate on the gas well road. This barn needs some maintenance but appears to be in useable condition. There is an old farm building (believed to be a Clay Farm Equipment milking parlor) on the west side near the West Gate, currently best accessed from the South Gate, but located just off of CR 282. This roughly 48 ft. x 20 ft. glazed-brick building is in indeterminate condition but could be salvageable; it appears to have a concrete foundation and the walls look substantial.

The land types on this property are as follows (all acreages are approximate and rounded):

145 acres of pastures and fields
48 acres of woods (20 acres around main pond, 5 acres western woods, remainder associated with creeks and river)
4 total acres of ponds (one 2.5-acre main pond, four smaller ponds)
3 acre partially-fenced gas well site
3 acres in the well site road, barns/farmstead sites
