This quiet and secluded property has a couple of places that seem to be ideal for a house or cabin. Less than 1/10 of a mile from the southern boundary at Fish Hatchery Road, there is an old barn, and the surrounding area around the barn seems flat and would make an ideal place for a larger home, barns, etc. Further back along Mason Lodge Road, about 2/10 mile from the corner, is a flat spot (see photos) where there is probably room for a cabin, and maybe more room further up the little valley between the hills. The hills appear to be virgin wooded areas, ideal for hunting or hiking. On my drive through the area on two different days, I've seen raccoon, woodchuck and white tail deer. Neighbor says his son has found deer, pheasant and wild turkeys on the property. If you want to live out of the congested city, but within an easy drive to conveniences, this is the ideal place for your home. If you want to camp, hike, hunt, or even park your RV, explore the little valley between the hills.
I thought this parcel was the ideal hide-away in Greene County, and purchased the parcel from the Scruggs, who I think inherited the property from a relative. There has been no development of the property that I know of, although other neighbors have homes, mobile homes, small farms, etc.
HOW TO FIND IT:
U S Highway 81 - Take the "Fish Hatchery Road - Exit 15". Turn South East 6.4 miles, turn left on Mason Lodge Road.
Property is on left side of road. Before and after the old barn is the first flat area, ideal for building your house or cabin. Then, about a 1/10 of a mile North on Mason Lodge Road, you'll see another great area to build on the flat spot, between two hills. The small valley goes on and around the corner, and might make the ideal secluded site for camping or a cabin.
