525 acres in Upshur County, Texas

$1,200,000 525 Acres
Property ID 1499165


RECREATIONAL-TIMBER-DEVELOPMENT TRACT DELUX WITH 225 ACRES OF MINERALS: 525 acres of totally wooded land 15 minutes from Longview Texas. This land has an excellent stand of plantation pine and young hardwood that is ready for a commercial thinning now or in the near future, it just keeps growing. The property has 50% of the oil and gas rights that stay with the surface ownership. There are currently no active leases on the property but the lease that expired in 2012 paid the surface owner a $30,000 signing bonus. Timber: There are several areas of 15 year old pine plantation that needs thinned. There are areas of young hardwood that could be thinned now or later. There is approximately 300 acres of fully stocked timber on the land. The balance of the acreage is either under stocked in timber or is in roads, creek, or slough. ACCESS: There is about 4000 ft of frontage on Hwy 154 and additional interior roads that make the property excellent for using all the land. Water: Little Cypress creek runs through the land and has live water most of the time. There is several sloughs on the land as well as Coven Lake that also provides water for recreation. Hunting: This land has it all for hunting. Duck hunting is available on the creek as well as in the sloughs and Coven Lake. There are 2 duck blinds on the lake ready to go. Hog and deer hunting is exceptional on the land with lots of cover and food, but plenty of access and openings for stands. Improvements: One small cabin on the property near the creek and an old oil well site for camping makes this a great place for rvs or over night stays. This property really has it all. I have sold timberland and recreational property for 30 years and this offers the best options for an exit plan when it comes time to resell that I have seen. Great tract, be sure and take a look.
