Phenomenal Water Wetlands Waterfowl Wildlife - One of a Kind

Property ID 2326412

Description

This property has an unbelievable amount of fresh water and wildlife. Its innumerable springs and ground seepage feed multiple creeks that head on the property. They in turn feed an approximately 20 acre fresh water marsh that never runs dry. There are multiple sites to build lakes in the creek bottom. The one of a kind marsh is a phenomenal habitat and roost to migratory waterfowl. Small game is abundant as well a deer and hogs. The water and wildlife have been an attraction to Native Americans for centuries. An archeological steward dug 13 test holes on the property and found archeological material in every hole, some dating back 2000 years. The property has a wildlife tax exemption and ranks among the top wildlife habitats in the county. The house is on a hill with view of the sunset and catches a glimpse of the marsh through the sweetgums. On some nights you can hear the howl of the coyotes, the hoot of the owls or the cry of the whip-o-will. This is truly one of the few wild places left.

Directions

From old downtown Ben Wheeler turn west at the Forge restaurant on 773. Go one mile. The road will go down hill and turn sharply to the right. In that curve turn off to the left on VZ CR 4701. Go one mile and the road will make a sharp turn to the right. Just as you have made the turn, turn left into the drive which has an aluminum gate. The house is back about 300 yards.
