Rustic Ridge Ranch
Located in Cherokee County, southeast of Locust Grove in the heart of the Ozark Mountain foothills sits an impressive 695 acres m/l that is hunt-ready with a beautiful new 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, home with a loft and all the amenities! Perhaps one of the most appealing features of this property, one that is often taken for granted, is that fact that it has miles and miles of roads and trails to access the entire 695 acres. Properties of this size and magnitude rarely come up for sale with an existing trail system and a first class accommodations!
The home is new construction pier and beam with a large front porch deck. The home has a lot of upgrades and a very rustic country feel with all wood floors, wood ceiling inlays, and all stone fireplace. The house is extremely energy efficient with all closed cell foam insulation throughout and is heated and cooled with 3 mini split units on 3 zones. In addition, there is an energy recovery ventilation (ERV) that brings in fresh air to home whenever you desire. This is truly more than just a place to spend the weekend and you have the option to live full time or use it solely for recreation. Lake Region electric supplies the house and as a bonus they have brought in high speed fiber optic internet so you'll be "connected" at all times if you choose. Water that feeds the house is a new water well with thousands of dollars of tech and purification to keep your water clean.
The property has great access via a section line deeded road off of E 590 Rd also known as Iron Post Road, located just 2 miles south of Highway 412. The recreational value of this property is extremely diverse. It is currently being managed for hunting, but would be an excellent location for horseback riding, trail rides, an amazing ATV style park, or an amazing youth camp location.
Mature pines and oaks are scattered amongst the landscape of saddles, ridge-lines, and creek bottoms. There is over half a mile of Bryant Creek that runs through the southern portion of the property, fed by multiple springs. One spring the locals refer to as "Dripping Spring" has never been seen dry and can be seen flowing from the rock year-round. The live spring sits just North of the 1/2 mile of Bryant Creek that is on the South end of the property. The creek flows during the spring and fall months and being spring fed the water is typically very clear. In the summer months when the creek appears dry you only need to dig down a few feed to find crystal clear spring water running and you could easily build some large water holes that stay wet year round. When it comes to hunting, you'll be impressed to know that it has been managed for mature wildlife for over 25 years! Almost all the treestands and feeders will remain with the property and multiple food plots have been strategically cultivated over the years, which means all the work and scouting has already been done for you to shoot trophy class whitetails, turkeys, or predators. The property has an abundance of just about everything you'd hope to hunt in Oklahoma. Wild turkeys can be seen almost anywhere on the property, spring or fall. For off-season hunting, there are plenty of wild hogs in the area to keep you out in the field so you can keep your bow or rifle skills honed in. There is a growing population of black bears in the area and they have been seen more than one bear in the area. Whitetail deer are abundant on the property and they've had the opportunity to grow to maturity and age into trophy class whitetails. No bucks were harvested in 2022 due to busy work schedules so all the trail cam photos of trophy deer means they should still be there living and thriving for you to have an opportunity to hunt in 2023!
Whether it's trophy whitetail hunting you're after or just a large recreational ranch, this is truly a diverse, multi-use property that offers amazing views and miles and miles of trails. Don't this one slip by, call Richard Senn to schedule a private showing!
