Mississippi Farm and Homestead Land For Sale

Beaumont, MS
Long Branch is a 365-acre country property that is ideal for the person or family looking for a place to live, farm, hunt and fish. This recreational property offers a ton of diversity that includes a few picturesque homesites, 130 acres of tillable farmland, 215 acres of marketable pine and hardwood timber, a 4-acre pond, and a 10- acre wetland area for wildlife and ducks in the SW corner of the property. The 130 acres of farmland is a blank slate! The new owner could 1) Lease the farm ground, 2) Use it as pasture or hay, 3) Plant it in trees and place your internal roads and food plots exactly where you want them or 4) Potentially enroll it in the CRP program for dependable cash flow for years to come. The 215 acres of pine and hardwood timber are a great place to hunt deer and turkeys and will produce a solid return on your investment. Some of this timbered acreage is all pine, some is all hardwood, and other portions are a mixture of pine and hardwood. When I viewed the property for the first time, I immediately knew is was a special place with a load of potential, but what stood out the most was how quiet it was. Rarely are we able to be outside and not hear anything but the breeze and nature. The property has 2,500’ of frontage on paved Hintonville Rd, and the primary driveway is near the NE property corner. As you drive down the driveway, it takes you to a small cabin that has been vacant for many years. Whether it is renovated or removed, it’s a great homesite that overlooks the pond and a portion of the open land, and being 1,750’ off the road, you won’t hear or see the few cars that pass by each day. If you’ve been dreaming of a beautiful place in the country to live on or use as recreational property, call me and let’s take a look at this place before its gone.
