Home, Farm, Timber and Hunting!
The Post Oak Tract offers move-in ready country living with 363 acres of land to hunt, manage timber, and farm or raise livestock. Located on paved County Road 50, just a few minutes outside of Ozark in north Dale County, this tract is ideal for a family that wants to have a large homestead and would be equally suitable for a hunting club or as a corporate retreat. Most of the tract is covered with a gorgeous mix of merchantable hardwood and pine timber. And, with approximately 18 acres of pasture, this property would also be an excellent choice for someone looking to raise horses or cows or convert to farmland. Surrounded by large timber tracts, you will enjoy the peace and solitude of country life while being minutes away from all the conveniences of town. This is a true turnkey opportunity at a great price!
The topography varies from level to rolling hills and draws. Some of the upland timber was select cut many years ago but the bottoms have been left to grow for decades and it shows. There is no recent timber cruise available, but it is easy to see there is a considerable amount of sawtimber on the tract and the balance of the trees are approaching that stage. Mature white and red oaks are everywhere. The timber could be harvested right away and replanted in pine, select cut to create more diversity, or left as-is to produce even more volume in the years ahead. Several springs located throughout the tract provide fresh water for the wildlife. There are seven established food plots in place and a large power line crosses the property allowing excellent long-range shooting opportunities. Not surprisingly, this place is loaded with deer and turkey. And, no matter where the wind is coming from, there is a good place to hunt! For you bow hunters, the bottoms are full of good hardwoods and form some natural travel corridors. This is excellent turkey habitat with roosting areas, hardwoods, water, and some open fields for spring strutting. A good internal road system provides easy access all the way from the paved road to the northern boundary.
The large, spacious, ranch-style home has an open floor plan and is ready for new owners to make it their own. It’s 3,003 heated and cooled square feet include three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and an office. Solidly built in 1978, it has great bones and sits on a concrete foundation with brick exterior walls and a metal roof. Not at all typical of the time when it was built, the kitchen, dining room, and living room (with a wood-burning fireplace) are open concept. You will love the extra-large master bedroom with two walk-in closets. The master bath features split vanities, separate shower and shower-tub combination, and plenty of cabinet space. The other two bedrooms are also spacious and include good closet space. The large office has a gorgeous view of the front yard and is a great place to watch turkeys and deer in the early morning and late afternoon. There is a separate laundry room and an additional utility room for extra appliances in the garage. The enclosed back porch overlooks the saltwater pool directly behind the home; a great place to cool off after spending a hot summer afternoon in the woods. The yard is full of majestic oaks, pecan trees, fruit trees and a scuppernong trellis. An irrigated acre of land behind the house offers all kinds of options for a large garden. Two barns, a pool house, and other outbuildings provide plenty of room to store your equipment.
