Turkey Ridge - 102+/- Acres in Neshoba County, MS
Welcome to Turkey Ridge, incredible log home on 102+/- acres in Neshoba County, MS. This should be your next home or weekend getaway. Sitting way off the beaten path deep into the rural countryside is where you will find this hidden gem. Secluded and private, peaceful, and tranquil, you will not want to leave. The custom-built log home is truly remarkable, pictures and words do not do it justice. From the top-quality construction and craftsmanship to the views, the quiet and even the smells, this place is something to experience.
The post and beam constructed log home was custom designed and built in 2013 by Hochstetler Log Homes out of Ohio, the nation’s leader in quality log homes. Hochstetler has perfected their craft, look at their website for more information at www. Hochstetlerloghomes.com. All the wood in this home was hand selected and dried for five years, then when cut for the plan it was kiln dried for another six weeks. They do this so that when the wood is shipped it has less than 18% water content (Hochstetler will not ship until this 18% water content or less is met), this is important so that the wood does not crack or warp.
The home features 3,616 sf., 4BR/4.5BA heated with 1,434 sf. of porches/decks, 485 sf. of unfinished basement and a 660 sf. detached two-car garage. The first floor is 1,920 sf. consisting of the kitchen, living room, two bedrooms to include the master suite, two baths and the large, covered deck overlooking the fishing pond. Upstairs is the 287 sf. loft, great for additional sleeping of just for sitting, reading, or napping. Downstairs is the 1,435 sf. basement with den, two bedrooms each with their own bath, a half bath, unfinished area for storage, and laundry room. It also opens to the outside covered patio and pond, for quick and easy access to the bass and bream. The builder and owner went to extremes to ensure the basement would never leak, and it has not. All details of the construction process available upon request.
The flooring throughout includes antique heart pine on the first floor, eastern white pine in the loft and a synthetic waterproof polymer in the basement. The bathrooms all have ceramic tile. You will find granite countertops throughout except for in the master bath where there is a beautiful concrete countertop and sink. The island in the kitchen really stands out with its copper top. There are two gas insert fireplaces to enjoy, both built into the huge stone chimney that stands from the basement all the way up to the loft. The exterior and interior walls are eastern white pine, the posts and beams are Oregon Fir. The home is heated and cooled with 15 High efficiency Mitsubishi ductless units. The windows are Marvin, argon gas double pane inserts for maximum efficiency. The home is extremely energy efficient due to the measures that were taken during construction.
The timber consists of 40+/- acres of mature pine/hardwood mix, 20+/- acres of pines planted around 2006, and 40+/- acres of pines planted around 2015.
The property earned its name “Turkey Ridge” for a reason, it is loaded with turkeys! This land has been in the family for many years. The owners have enjoyed hunting turkey, deer, small game, and fishing in the stocked pond, but mostly they have enjoyed family time together. The property is ideal for what it has been used for, a home away from home. A perfect place to spend the weekends with the ones you love most. But not only that, it is perfect for an everyday home, convenient to Union and Philadelphia, MS, and good schools.
