Additional Property Details
The mostly wooded 325.56+/- acre tract features nearly a mile of stream frontage on Plum Run Creek. While this isn’t a designated trout stream, there are certainly some holes that could hold fish. Multiple active springs on the property and 2 spring-fed ponds in the valley also add to the charm and contribute to a healthy wildlife population.
The 35 acres in the main valley that the stream flows through is currently pastured by an area farmer but it could be converted into natural prairie if the new owner desired. Several classic barns in this pasture would be suitable for sheltering livestock of storing equipment.
On both sides of this valley, the land trends upward to wooded ridges. On this high ground, over 2 miles of 4x4 trails track across a 280+/- acre network of ridges and valleys. The wandering ridges create hidden pockets and funnels that would make any whitetail hunter covetous.
This wooded land is ideal for holding wildlife. Most of it (274+/- acres) is in the MFL closed program and selective cutting over the years has created endless edge cover that deer love. In the hundreds of properties that I’ve toured, I’ve seldom if ever seen a property with a higher concentration of white oak timber. There are a few red oak and other species scattered in for variety but the majority is mast producing white oaks. On the ridges, multiple small stands of off species have been removed leaving pockets of heavy bedding cover. Some of these could also be cleared for strategic food plots.
One 7+/- acre ridgetop field is not in the MFL program. It is currently in grass and would be perfect for a larger wildlife food plot or renting out for a little extra income. This would also be a great spot to set up for a spring gobbler.
When it’s time to head in for the day, you’ll appreciate the 1250+/- square foot home on the property. As the story goes, it was originally built in the 1860’s and rebuilt in the 1960’s. As it is, it would be a nice place to get out of the weather or it could be remodeled if you wanted something a bit nicer. Either way, you’ll enjoy the view looking over the valley and creek.
