4585 CR 216, Oakland, MS is FOR SALE
WELCOME TO YOUR NEW HOME
Back when Lincoln was President a log cabin stood on this property. There were two large rooms separated by a dog trot. One side for living, the other side for sleeping. A wooden staircase rose from the bedroom to an upstairs attic.
The log house still stands in its original location, but you wouldn’t know it unless you looked inside this gorgeous, southern-style, executive house.
The current house was built around the original log home, anchoring it with the spacious, original bedroom and updated with a home office separated by the dog trot, now serving as a parlor. On either end of the parlor sit large, covered porches to relax on and watch the native wildlife: deer.
The original staircase still winds upstairs but now, with the roof raised, two more bedrooms, and living areas take the place of the smaller attic. There is a larger, grander staircase to get you back downstairs and into the main foyer. To the back of the house is an expansive living room accented with floor to ceiling windows and doors to let in natural light and provide beautiful views of the property. A fireplace and built in cabinetry make the room complete.
The house features a large formal dining room, a gourmet kitchen and casual dining area with island-counter seating, and peninsula-counter seating. Must-see counters include pale green granite and custom glass-tile to match. Large floor-to-ceiling windows bring in sunlight and natural views. The kitchen is highlighted by a Butler’s Pantry and loads of custom cabinetry for storage.
The Master Suite takes over one end of the newer house making this a 4-bedroom house. With a private covered balcony shaded by trees, there is also access to a sunroom which separates the master bedroom from the casual dining space. Along the back of the house is a multi-tiered deck for entertaining or just relaxing.
There are several additional buildings and features on the property, including an in-ground smoker, storm shelter, greenhouse and cellar only accessible from the exterior of the house.
Did I mention hunting?
This 7050 square foot house is surrounded by prime hunting opportunities. In fact, there is a current hunting lease on the property which can be transferred to the new owner or not. An abundance of deer and wild turkey roam the property.
Not only can 4585 CR 216 be someone’s home, but it could also be a hunting lodge, or an event venue with B&B potential; concerts, weddings, corporate getaways, sportsman retreats are just a few ideas. There is ample room under the roof to add rooms upstairs as the house was designed and built with that potential in mind.
TIMBER AND FARMING
The property has a significant timber value and the two main parcels are separated by USA land and not connected so it can be used for multiple purposes including timber harvesting and developing.
Most of the acreage surrounds the house, including cleared farmland. The additional property is accessible from a nearby highway. The cleared farmland has income producing potential.
The house is minutes from Enid Lake boat ramp, and about 30 minutes to Oxford, MS and Ole Miss. Oakland is along I-55 so there is easy access to the Memphis airport. And, nearby to the west is the Blues Trail, Grammy Museum and other historic music venues in the Delta that tourists flock to every year from all over the world.
There is a lot more to tell you about, but you really need to come visit. Call your agent or me, for an appointment. Serious buyers only, please.
