Nestled among gorgeous hardwoods, this executive home awaits a new owner.

A 7050 +/- square-foot, southern-style house features a front covered porch with an entry to the historic end of the house in additional to a more formal entry.

The formal, double-door entry to the house is highlighted by a grand chandelier in the foyer which can be lowered electronically for cleaning. A matching chandelier hangs in the formal dining room just off the foyer.

The great living room is large for entertaining and features a remote-controlled gas fireplace, built-in cabinets and French doors to the covered back porch and multi-level deck. Large wall of windows, from the living room, dining room and sunroom, look over the yard often visited by numerous deer.

The two-story home is anchored by the family’s original 1860’s log cabin featuring a dog trot, accessible from the front, covered porch, and flanked with two large rooms. The lower level of the log cabin is incorporated into the architecture of the house and features original beams and walls on this interior. A staircase which lead to the original attic is still in use to go to the fully rebuilt upstairs. The lower, original log-cabin rooms include a bedroom, full bath and a home office with custom, built-in cabinetry. A large parlor at the end of the dog trot joins the log home to the new addition and features French doors to the rear porches.

The gourmet kitchen has an oversized granite island. Cabinetry lines the walls to the ceilings and the counters and backsplash are decorated with elegant, high-fired ceramic tile. Appliances include a microwave/convection oven, electric cooktop with pop-up ventilation, oven, dishwasher and more. A butler’s pantry includes more storage, a sink and a second refrigerator. Beyond a countertop peninsula with seating is the casual dining room and adjoining sunroom.

Home sits on 235 +/- acres of a mix of pine and hardwoods, with some cleared acreage for planting. This offers a potential source of income for sharecropping, leasing or farming, and timber. Value of farming potential is neither estimated nor warranted by seller, so a purchaser would have to have this appraised for themselves.  Current owners allow planting with a sod grower. A generous timber appraisal is available upon request.

The property borders USA land to the west. Since the house was built around an existing historic home, CR 216 runs close to the house but far enough for privacy. Anyone driving CR 216 is there because they live along that road, or are a guest of a resident, so the daily traffic is extremely light. For fishing and boating enthusiasts, the house is minutes from both the Water Valley Landing/Boat Ramp and the George Cossar State Park at Enid Lake.

Abundance of deer, turkey and other animals make this land great for hunting. A current lease on the property with a local hunting club provides no monetary value and is subordinate to the owner; the club can hunt on property in exchange for policing the land and running off trespassers.  This hunting lease can terminate on or before closing on the purchase or be transferred to purchaser.

Interior fireplace, located in the living room, was originally a wood burning fireplace with a firewood pass-through. Recently converted to a gas fireplace with remote control, the insert can be removed to restore it to a wood burning fireplace.

Some of the furniture in the house and equipment in the other buildings is negotiable for sale with separate Bill of Sale. Personal items and select art pieces are not included.

Oakland, MS is located south of Batesville and north of Grenada. Situated along Interstate 55, travel is direct to Memphis, TN and Jackson, MS. Nearby, Greenville, MS is home to the Grammy Museum. The Mississippi Delta is filled with duck hunting, the Blues Trail, 5-star restaurants, casinos, and entertainment and art centers. Oxford, home to the University of Mississippi, is about 35 miles to the northeast. The Mississippi Gulf Coast and New Orleans are less than a day’s drive away.

Does this sound like the next home for you? Do you want to escape from the urban life and take on a peaceful, country lifestyle that is not too far from shopping, great restaurants and entertainment? Agents…are you currently helping someone find their rural oasis?
