Briarpatch is a member-only recreational development limited to 15 member-owners on approx. 1400 acres with a +/- 87-acre lake and a +/- 34- acre lake. You purchase a minimum 5-acre lot on the big lake and own all the rest of the common property with the other member-owners. The development was conceived in 1998 and designed to be a family-oriented fishing and hunting preserve. The property includes two fully furnished guest houses available to the members on a "first come - first serve" basis. There are two community boathouses and four fully rigged fishing boats. A full-time caretaker lives on the property and maintains everything. All equipment necessary for maintaining the land is located on the property and stored in a large barn facility. You can build your own house and/or boathouse on your lot although there is no requirement to do so. To date, 6 member private houses have been built and numerous boathouses. The concept is to provide for private and exclusive individual lake lots as well as an economical way to utilize and enjoy a large parcel of land without having to buy and maintain it all by yourself.
The property is maintained year-round with the goal of first-class fishing and hunting. The fishing is outstanding on both lakes with the lakes stocked; excellent structure in the lakes; and, they are fertilized/limed each year. There are numerous hunting zones with over 20 food plots, shooting houses and ladder stands, a continental pheasant tower, and a planted dove field.
Lot 7 is available which is one of the best lots and is 5.44 acres with over 600 feet of shoreline. The owner has built a small cabin with a large garage mainly for the storage of his fishing and hunting equipment. Very private lot with gentle slope to the lake and mature hardwoods/pines mixture. The price is $375,000.
