This amazing property of 76.39+/- acres and beautiful country home, is located right outside of the city limits of Pollock, La. at 165 James Ryder Rd. Only 5 minutes off of US Hwy 165, Alexandria/Pineville is only a 20 minute drive and Monroe is less than an hour and a half away. Convenient, yet somewhat secluded, you can watch or hunt deer from your back porch.
The “Back Forty” consists of mixed pine and hardwood timber with a thick under story that makes for great hunting. Dyson Creek runs through and along the north border and the property borders US National Forest property on the west for additional hunting opportunity. As you come back south towards the house there are 15+/- acres of mostly planted pines that have recently been thinned along with a small pond. There are several food plots and box stands already established and in place and along with great deer hunting, turkey and squirrel hunting should be good too. Also in place are approx. 3 acres of Christmas trees that the current owner operates as a Christmas tree farm during the holiday season. Great income potential here if the new owner wants to continue and plenty of room for more trees if they want to get into that business. The remaining 18 or so acres is open and would be great for horse or other livestock pasture as there is another pond already established or could be planted in pines or more Christmas trees for income. There is also another home site with all utility hookups and septic system in place that has a separate entrance driveway and would be a great site for a guest house or mother in law quarters.
