TERRAIN: This ranch features a variety of terrain ranging from 220 feet to over 380 feet above sea level. Several prominent hill-top locations offer distant horizonal views and potential home building sites. Several ravines and live-water branches meander through the tract and along with the excellent sandy loamy soils provide a picturesque and well drained landscape.
IMPROVEMENTS: Numerous improved year round roads include the main ranch road which leads from the U.S. Highway to the center of property. Another improved road winds along a gorgeous spring-fed branch and mature hardwood forest.
