Reclaim YOUR LIFE! This heavily forested 46.32 acre tract of land with rolling topography and live water is, with utilities available, this all-natural acreage has broad frontage and boasts two scenic approaches to total privacy, yet less than fifteen minutes from Palestine, and five from Elkhart, Texas. Manson Creek created a draw on the north easement of the property which could easily become a private lake at the base of a prominent hillock with significant elevation ? where historically selective harvesting permitted a view of the horizon line. The egress from the hillock is studded with massive iron ore outcroppings and major old growth pines and hardwoods that give way to old stands of bamboo that fringe the creek. This could become a grand private home site. Because of the water source and being heavily wooded acreage with numerous species of seed-producing hardwoods (including seven of oak, pine, cedar, and walnut), old growth trees shelter understory plants and trees, i.e., native plumb trees and ornamentals such as dogwood, etc., deer frequent the land, which has neither been hunted nor leased by the owner, a sculptor, for over four decades. Dogwoods ? flowering and long-lived (up to 80-years) ? are not only prized for their spring blooms, but their red fruits that develop in the fall and feed mammals from squirrels, to deer (last seen within weeks), and a minimum of 28 bird species. Native and transitory species are not only attracted to the live water of Manson Creek, but the wide variety of food sources from plants and fruits, nuts and seeds, to prey. This land has untouched beauty and no pesticides or chemicals have been introduced. The numerous species of oak trees ranging from Live Oaks, Shumard Red Oaks and Texas Red Oaks to Mexican White Oaks, Chinquapins (heavy, hard, strong, durable for fencing, crossties, and furniture), Bur Oaks, and Canby Oaks, Short Leaf Pines, and Sweet Gum that are long-lived.
