DEER LAKE - A PARADIGM MOUNTAIN HUNTING & RECREATION PROPERTY or HAVE A PART-TIME RECREATIONAL RENTAL LOOKING out to the fish pond from the front door, you'll have a million dollar view! Just listening to the sounds of the woods, pond and the great outdoors, two deer - a doe and her fawn - snuck into my view! I was so entranced by the wonder of it all I didn't want to get off read more
the bench under the covered porch! I could have stayed there for hours...luckily though I did get on the 4-wheeler and took a grand tour of the property - all 160 acres on the many very wide trails and got some amazing photos as you can see for yourself.
I entered the cozy lodge (over 2100 sf according to the county assessor records) through the stylish wooden door and I was surprised by how luxurious it was. Granite counters throughout, wood siding/shiplap and tiled floors. The kitchen with an island is large enough to entertain a lot of family and friends, including a large dining table and room for seats at the island bar. There is a granite topped buffet too and granite and tile backsplash. Kitchen cabinets are hickory, plumbing fixtures are bronze. The ceiling downstairs is up to 18' high. The fireplace surround is real stone and extends to the high ceiling.
The light fixtures are modern mountain, with some ceiling fans, stainless steel appliances, washer/dryer hookup, large den, large master, 2 nice sized bedrooms and a super large loft that sleeps a lot of guests. All bedrooms have large closets with the master having a walk-in. All doors throughout match the modern decor. There are 2 (two) full baths downstairs - one of which is en suite with the master's room. The furniture may be negotiable. There is electric, propane, a well and sewer with lateral lines already in place. Everything has already been done here - just bring your suitcase and enjoy!
The metal cabin is well insulated with good quality windows - very low maintenance! It is nice enough you could retire and live here full time or just rent it out when you're not using it as a hunting lodge or weekend getaway. Again, the choice is yours.
There are a lot of closets and storage for toys, games and recreational accessories, plus two garages - both with a large roll up door. Garages are accessed through the laundry room. The exterior is metal - well done with exceptional real stone - partially clad that blends in well with the woods and forest that surrounds it. There is a firepit area in front of the pond for campfires! The road access is really good and the access road is deeded with an electric gate. It isn't far from Clayton or Snow, OK or Sardis Lake so it is perfect for anyone in Oklahoma or Texas!
The owners are leaving the deer stands and feeders, and there are several food plots too. As we toured the property we saw a lot of deer in the woods, including a very large buck that moved so quickly through the forest that my small camera was not equipped to catch his photo. As you'll see from the game camera photos, this land is abundant with whitetailed deer, wild turkey, bear, small game, ducks and water fowl and even a wild horse on occasion! There are large Bass fish in the pond for those who love to fish! The pond is large enough for a small boat too.
Don't forget, another feature of this marvel of a place is all the creeks (although they are wet-weather) were full after the recent rain when the photos were taken. Even in drier conditions, pools of water are found in the creeks. There are ponds throughout the property and the deepest moss on the trees that I've seen in a long time. You can see from the topo map that this forest land is really accessible for hunting, hiking, horseback riding, 4 wheeling - whatever suits you. There are elevation changes to make the property interesting and it feels much larger than the 160 acres. There are clearings throughout the woods, lots of accessible trails, pine and deciduous trees, a virtual wonderland for the outdoorsman.
Bonus!! This recreational property is also rented out at the Owners discretion and schedule! They rent it when they aren't using it themselves. The rental aspect has been very successful, and most who rent want to ride and hike the trails and fish in the lake!
