A secluded spot for a retirement home or a weekend getaway that is only 10 miles southeast of Henderson on an all-weather county road, this 26.4 acres has excellent access, nice gentle terrain, a diverse native forest, and a beautiful spring-fed branch along the back boundary. The native forest has a mix of pine and hardwoods, and was last harvested in the early 1990s according to the owner. The property is suitable for hunting, with plenty of sign of whitetail deer, feral hogs and squirrels.

The native forests on this property have a wide assortment of species including loblolly and shortleaf pine, white oak, black cherry, ash, shortleaf pine, water oak, black oak, sweetgum, southern red oak, American elm, Florida maple, American holly, cherrybark red oak, mulberry and hornbeam.

The very fine sandy loam soils are excellent for growing both pine and hardwood. The future owner will have several land management options on this property; a thinning harvest; a total harvest and replant; or allowing the forest to continue to grow for future harvesting. The terrain and soils also appear that they would be suitable for establishing pasture.

The main parcel on the west side of the county road is about 22.7 acres, with a 3.7-acre rectangle on the east side of the county road, joining the southeastern corner of the main parcel. The 26.4 acres includes a total of eight-tenths of an acre in the county road right-of-way.

All provided mapping is based on Rusk County Appraisal District and GIS aerial photo interpretation using deed call information, with ground checks of assumed corner and line markers.

This deed-described 26.4 acres is offered at $7,000 per acre or $184,800.

The Seller is retaining all owned minerals. No seller financing is available. Any hunting equipment such as feeders, trail cameras and blinds are not included in the sale.

This property is currently under Ag/Timber Valuation on the taxes, which show to have been $92.77 this past year.
Electric Power (believed to be Rusk County Electric Coop) crosses the property just west of and parallel to the county road, running north and south.
The primary eastern boundary is approximately 1,000 feet of frontage on the centerline of County Road 364 South.
The land is located within the Minden-Brachfield Water Supply service area, and the residences to the north are believed to have water service.
Telephone landline along east side of county road.
Septic will need to be installed.
Henderson ISD School District.
FEMA maps show no apparent floodplain along the eastern branch.
The old gas well has been plugged and abandoned in 2016, and to the best of the Sellers knowledge the old well pad is fully available for the surface owners use. It appears that most if not all of the equipment, tanks, or other gas/oil well associated materials on the well pad were removed following plugging.
A small natural gas pipeline runs east and west just south of the old well pad back to the west line; another small pipeline parallels the western boundary from north to south; and a small pipeline parallels the east side of the county road along the west end of the southeastern 3.7-acre rectangle.
See downloadable maps, well plugging report, and legal field note description. The most recent boundary survey is believed to be in 1974.
