It is a 54 acre parcel , 10 miles from town on a loop surrounded by forests and a few neighbors. This is a pristine ground level opportunity with national forest to the north and a gentle slope to the south. All the property faces south in a zone 7b at around 800 feet above sea level. This will comfortably handle 4-6 housing units and plenty of space for shared food forests and other style growing zones. All three sources of water besides sky rain are on the parcel. There is a spring, well and natural ground water from above on the mountains. All three are clean. Many large uncut trees and a fruiting hickory and pecan tree are present, including an old orchard with fruiting pears. The owner wants 20k down and will finance the rest, which makes the starting buy-in very reasonable.The land will re-surveyed in the best interests of the buyers and seller. I believe the entire parcel will sell around around 75-80K, which makes a whole buy-in 13-20,000. If you have google earth, go to caddo gap and hopper loop and it is the largest opening in a forested area. Interested parties can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
