WATER, RECREATION, HUNTING, HOME, RANCHING & HAY PRODUCTION
WATER: This beautiful property has both sides of 2 small rivers, totaling about 2 miles of frontage. The scenic Petit Jean River enters the property near the southeast corner traversing it in a NW direction. The Little Petit Jean enters the property from the east and traverses it in a westerly direction. It has a small rock waterfall that is very secluded for your own private place of solitude. The two rivers join (junction) on the west side of the property prior to exiting. That is where the name Petit Jean Junction comes from. There are several other seasonal and wet-weather creeks crossing the ranch and emptying into both of the main rivers. A pond is also located near the house and a water well provides water to the house.
RECREATION, HUNTING & AG: This property is located in the Ouachita Mountains and borders the Ouachita National Forest for about one-third mile on the south side. The terrain consists of everything from fertile river bottom land to rocky hills. It is about 50-60% wooded with several grass pasture areas that are surrounded by the woods. About 40 acres are currently used to produce Bermuda & native grass hay. The other pasture areas have very good native grass turf that are well suited for cattle grazing. The forested areas provide good hunting and opportunities to hike or drive ATVs. The varied terrain provides great habitat for Whitetail Deer, Turkey, Quail and Black Bear. Also, enjoy fishing from the rivers & pond. To add to the hunting & recreational enjoyment, the Ouachita National Forest offers thousands of acres for public use!
HOME: The farm house was originally constructed around 1932. It has been re-furbished and remodeled within the past few years (2004 & 2012) and provides a very comfortable place to reside permanently or as a nice retreat. It has been modernized with insulation, storm windows, vinyl siding, re-wired & central heating and cooling. The home has a large kitchen with dining area, living room, big utility/laundry room, one bathroom with a shower, bedroom and a formal dining room that is currently being used as a second bedroom. There is a large sun room with screen-covered windows on 3 sides. These windows are covered with plexiglass that can be removed. Patio doors in the kitchen open onto a covered wooden deck (built in 2015) and is a great place to have your morning coffee and enjoy the sunrise. The house comes with a propane gas range, refrigerator, 2 propane room heaters, washer & dryer.
OUTBUILDINGS: A large metal barn with a concrete floor serves as a workshop and storage for outdoor tools, mowers, small tractor, ATVs, etc. There is also a covered parking shed and a 20' shipping container that is used for super secure storage.
Much more can be said about this beautiful property, but it is best to see it in person, so give me a call to arrange an appointment to take your tour.
