Big Bend on the Big Piney River is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a one hundred seventy five acre farm with one mile of the Big Piney River as the western and northern property boundary. The deep water eddies are aqua blue and emerald green. Smallmouth bass, yellow suckers, and goggle eye (rock bass) are clearly visible. Easy access to the three hundred yard long gravel bar will provide endless recreation and is said to be the prettiest on the Big Piney River. I would agree.
Driving down the river bottom to White Bluff Cave you will be amazed at the view from the opening. A spring flows from the cave and would have provided shelter and water when it was occupied by native Americans. Artifacts found on the property include celts, beads, bird points, spear points, and flint knives. Near the base of White Bluff you will see remnants of the stone masonry that I believe could have been constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps.
There are two well kept homes on the property with each providing three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The main home provides a breathtaking view of the second white bluff that lies on the opposite side of the Big Piney River. A guest house at the rivers edge provides one bedroom and one bathroom. The guest house will require some TLC.
A machine shed for the farm equipment and a metal shop/garage will house anything you choose. The owner currently uses the metal shop to dry the ancient pine slabs and hand hewn ties that he has recovered from the river. He has an amazing amount of recovered lumber that would add character to a fireplace mantel, interior door frames, or man cave décor.
Wildlife abounds. While viewing the property I witnessed over forty deer and several turkey that the owner tends during the winter months. He reported that since the spring green up had begun, this was about half of what he normally helped through the winter.
The deeded access lane to the property is one half mile long and the land has been surveyed. Showing is by APPOINTMENT ONLY. Call Danny Miller at 573-528-1489 or email at email@example.com
