Off-Grid Property Service Options:
Access: This property is accessed by turning East off of a county maintained US Forest Service Road (Lenox Ridge Road) and traveling roughly 1 mile down a road that crosses through US Forest Service land. The new owners will need to obtain an access permit from the US Forest Service for use of the 1 mile section of road. The current cost for the permit is roughly $125/year.
Land: There are 20 acres (m/l) of land with a variation of terrain being mostly flat to gently sloping land on the south side of the Winding Stair Mountain Range. There is an elevated ridgetop setting with a flat spot that would be the ideal location to construct an off-grid cabin. The land is completely covered with a nice stand of mature timber that is native to south-eastern Oklahoma inducing a diverse variety of oaks, sweet gum, hickory, eastern red cedar as well as some nice saw log size native shortleaf pine that could be sawed into lumber if desired. The property adjoins the 1.5 million acre Ouachita National Forest on 2 sides. Wildlife are frequently seen in this area.
Agent’s Comments: This is a very unique property that provides access to both Billy Creek and the Ouachita National Forest Recreational Area with recreational opportunities including hunting, ATV riding, hiking and horseback riding on an impressive network of trails that meander through the Ouachita National Forest. Very peaceful and secluded wilderness type setting that would make a great recreational weekend getaway or even a full time residence.
