"Belt Creek Farm" An 80+/- Pineywoods Showplace

Tucked away in the Piney Woods of East Texas is this one-of-a-kind 80+/- acre mixed-use property featuring dramatic rolling terrain providing wonderful distant views; lush pastures and deep forests; ample live water with springs, a live water creek, spring branches, and two stocked spring-fed fishing lakes; and a stylishly remodeled four bedroom, three bath ranch home situated upon a dominant hill overlooking green pastures below and surrounded by ages-old hardwood trees including massive, sprawling mature live oaks.

The charming ranch home was significantly renovated in 2004 and features approximately 2,400 SF of main area living space with a red brick exterior trimmed in cypress. The brick is finished with an attractive mortar-wash technique. A solid hardwood double front door entry is accessed by a limestone path and is framed by native Texas landscaping, including a variety of flowering and fragrant shrubs and other plantings. A wood deck spans the front of the home and is covered with a metal roof supported by massive cypress posts and affords unmatched views of the fenced yard and huge shady hardwood trees. The rear of the home has an attached brick floored sun room with windows opening to a red bricked rear patio which has a seating/dining area and bar-b-que. Attached to the home is a framed two-car carport with storage closets and buildings situated nearby include a potting shed, an equipment storage building, and well house.

The highlight of the home is a tall floor-to-ceiling double brick mortar-washed fireplace with openings to the living and dining rooms. The floors are primarily antique hardwood planking with brick and mortar tiled floors found in the bathrooms and kitchen. Many custom details and techniques are employed including: custom hardwood cabinets and vanities, solid wood doors, beaded board wainscotting, finished faux stucco sheetrocked walls, built-ins including bookcases and shelving, pine tongue & groove and cypress paneling, vaulted ceilings, among other fine details.

The property features gorgeous steep hills and rolling pastures and is broken by several heavily wooded ravines. One ravine forms a one acre fishing lake and another is a spring fed branch with crystal-clear, cold running water that feeds into the larger four acre fishing lake which then overflows into the large live water Belt Creek, forming the eastern boundary of the property. Elevation changes approximately 140 feet over the property with the tallest hill being an abrupt 80 feet tall. Soils are good sandy loam and ideal for growing hay and crops.

The property has excellent ranching facilities and is currently used for grazing livestock. A 800 square foot barn with lofts, sheds, and cattle working pens and gates is located adjacent to the 50'x'16 horse stables with four stalls, tack room, and shed. The property is divided into several pastures with many gates and roads leading to all corners of the tract. A gravel, fenced drive leads from the main gate up the hill to the home site which is enclosed in a ranch board fence separating it from the livestock operation. Fishing is great for bass, perch and catfish. Hunting is excellent with whitetail deer, feral hogs, and other small game animals. Native wildlife is also abundant.

The property will convey with the home completely furnished. The seller can include with sale various outdoor equipment including several four wheelers and a tractor with implements. Please contact us for full details on non-realty items offered with sale.

Overall, this desirable recreational or working ranch offers an incredible blend of natural beauty, classy improvements, lovely scenery, incredible views, useful ranch improvements, and flowing live streams and verdant pastures. One of East Texas' finest propertys is also easily accessed--just a ninety minute drive from Houston or around an hour drive's from the Beaumont/Pt. Arthur, or Lufkin areas.
