Welcome to your private, lake paradise in Pearl River County, Mississippi. This 719.95+/- surveyed acre farm has been a family treasure for many years; the pride of ownership stands out the minute you arrive at the gated entrance. This beautiful property offers a little bit of everything for the avid outdoorsman...a camp, hunting, fishing, horse riding, trail riding, you literally have it all here! The two bedroom, two bath, 2,244+/- square foot cabin is a great place for the family to use as a fulltime residence, weekend getaway, or a perfect company retreat. Coffee and/or your favorite drink will just taste better while sitting on the porch overlooking your 110+/- acre private lake. The view is absolutely incredible. Just outside the main structure you will find a quaint guest home/cabin ideal for guests, kids, or grandkids (they will love their own two bedroom, one bath suite). The double slip boat house is ready to accommodate your pontoon and fishing boat. Beside the cabin area is the chicken coup and horse pasture perfect for your backyard mini farm. The caretaker's house is a few yards through the woods from the main cabin area and features an octagonal 1,202+/- square foot three bedroom two bath home with new floors and appliances. This house enjoys privacy with its own gated entrance and could easily be considered an additional guesthouse. A maintenance area, with a shop and shed, is tucked away in the woods away from the other improvements. On to the lake. The avid outdoorsmen will fall in love with the 110+/- acre stocked lake featuring two concrete boat ramps, a swimming area, and trophy fishing. Little Hell Creek traverses the property and constantly feeds the lake with good, clear, spring water. Honestly, how many people do you know who own a 100+ acre private lake? As of July 23, 2021, this is the largest lake property on the market in Mississippi. A small, stocked pond, great for the kids, is situated not too far from the main cabin.The landscaping throughout this property is meticulous! From the gated entrances to the roads, to the timber, to the beautiful pasture, this property offers diversity. The all-weather timber road (we didn't spin a tire after roughly 50 consecutive days of rain upon initial inspection) will take you to any of the five, established large-acreage wildlife plots (with plenty of room for more). The total land make-up includes: 275+/- acres of mature mixed pine and hardwood, 134+/- acres of hardwood drains, 169+/- acres of open pasture (cuts approximately 1,800 round bales annually, on average), 12+/- acres of pine plantation, and the remainder in water features and home sites. Historically, the hunting has been great with many deer, turkey, and hogs calling this place home. The current owner plants corn, clay peas, and clover to keep the wildlife happy (no real hunting pressure in recent years). There is plenty of room to add a dove field to the mix as well. The farm offers three gated entrances along the north side of Stanford Lake Road, so you won't have to blow out the entire farm getting to your favorite stand. It shouldn't take you long to visualize the happiness and lifelong memories this 719.95+/- acre Pearl River County property can bring. This place will surely make dreams come true. If you have been looking for the true, outdoorsman's paradise, you must see this.
