Having 25-acres of tillable land, investment timber, a 4-acre duck pond and potential building sites make this a one of kind multi-use property.

Combined, these tracts total +/-121.21-Acres and consist of mature hardwoods, blocks of planted pines, several open fields, a huge duck pond, two large creeks and several options for building the perfect homestead or mini farm.

They all offer scenic farmland views and privacy, and could be kept in tillable land or could easily be used for a homesite s, pasture, or wildlife food plots.
In the heart of the this parcel is the beautiful 4-acre Duck Pond. It appears to be spring fed as its ecosystem is thriving with aquatic plants and wildlife. Lilly pads are peppered across the pond and provide cover for fish and reptiles, and many types of birds and waterfowl visit the pond. During each of my visits I've flushed ducks from the pond, and the old duck blinds are a testament to the hunting opportunities this pond offers. The remainder of the parcel is fully wooded and contains approximately 22-acres of planted Loblolly Pines, as well as various species of hardwood trees. The pines are approaching 15-years of age and are under a forestry management plan.
The diversity found on this property provides natural browse and thick cover for wildlife. Whitetail deer, wild turkey and other small game & non-game animals call this property home and provide good hunting or wildlife viewing opportunities.
The old family homestead is found on this tract, but is in total disrepair. Several potential homesites may be found on this property subject to favorable soil science results, or it could be kept as investment and recreational property. Low property taxes are a key feature as this tract is enrolled in the Stokes County Tax Deferral program for Agriculture and Timber Management.
