Price Reduced! This tract has it all: existing 3/1 house, high hilltop site with great views for a new home site, pasture for livestock, woods for hunting, creeks and a slough for water wildlife, two ponds, trails to explore. Three miles from Lake O the Pines.
Wide variety of terrain: High hilltop with views for miles was the old homesite location (great place for a new home), level and rolling land of pastures and woods, low sloughs near Big Cypress bottoms for water wildlife.
Two ponds and Little Creek (flows into Big Cypress bottoms).
Part of the land is large native timber, some is regrowth area, some is cleared pasture.
There is at least one oil/gas pipeline crossing the property.
At least part of the property is a Flowage Easement for Lake O the Pines. This is not the same as being in a flood zone (land that is subject to natural flooding). A Flowage Easement allows the Army Corps of Engineers to flood the affected land (usually a rare instance) if it is deemed necessary for the operation of the Lake. There may also be some restrictions on the building of habitations or other structures in the Flowage lowlands.
Other than the Flowage Easement, Owner indicates there are no land use restrictions affecting this property.
Owner will consider subdividing the property.
This tract was previously an active, developed homestead-livestock tract; has been empty for several years, so would need some work (building repairs, fence mending-installing, bushhogging) to bring it back into production.

Two ponds and Little Creek provide year-round water for livestock.
Shallow water well (not currently working) provides water for lawn and livestock.
