COMMENTS: Very nice tract of land in rural setting but very near the city of Poteau. Two golf courses, hospital, schools, shopping, college and medical clinics are within a 10 minutes drive. The home is in good condition outside with nice paint and newer all-metal roofing. The seal on a couple of the thermal windows has leaked and these need new glass installed. The home is perfectly livable, but inside some touch-up, painting and carpet cleaning or replacing is needed if you want a perfect home. It appears that most of the needed repairs can be handled by anyone with a little experience. This is really a lot of home for the price and is a place with lots of room around your home where you can grow a garden, have fruit trees and even keep a horse or two if you wish.
