Beautiful Riverfront Property In Southwest AR
The Barkman Farm is one of the oldest continuously owned farms in South Arkansas. This beautiful riverfront property has been held by the same families since the early 1800s and is one of only a few undeveloped properties bordering the scenic Ouachita River. The manicured hay meadows offer unincumbered vistas across the gently rolling landscape. These meadows give way to the bank of the upper Ouachita River and its numerous gravel bars where leisurely summer afternoons could be spent sunning, swimming, or catching fish. If a crisp mornings hunt is more to your liking the creek drains and surrounding timberlands hold outstanding whitetail deer, small game and waterfowl can be hunted up and down the river and on the property’s numerous sloughs. The farm would make an excellent site for a commercial hunting operation for pen-raised quail, chukar, and pheasant. Its close proximity to Little Rock, only an hour NE, or Texarkana to the SW make an afternoon of shooting as easy as going to the mall. With multiple buildable sites to choose from, several of which sit over-looking the river, a custom lodge or home could be ready in a short time. The current cabin and outbuildings would be perfect for a caretaker and the site would provide adequate space for additional shops, pens, or kennels. A professional 9 station skeet range, with high and low towers, is located near the cabin. A couple of rounds should be all that’s needed to assist the clients before an afternoon hunt. If your desires are geared more to return on investment then multiple high-end home sites along the river could be developed providing significant returns. This area is also known for holding large deposits of high-quality rock and gravel deposited layer upon layer, over many, many years. These vast deposits could provide an income stream for years to come. If the ranch life is what you’re looking for then look no further. The fenced and cross-fenced pastures, hay meadows, holding pens, pond, tack house, and corrals provide the perfect setting for cattle, horses, or both. The manicured hay meadows could annually produce over 1500 large round bales of hay or support up to 300 head of cattle. This farm is the PERFECT investment opportunity for the savvy investor seeking a favorable shelter. With Arkansas’ favorable economic atmosphere, low taxes, and easy lifestyle you won’t go wrong.
