Sikes Homestead and House, Winn Parish, 22 acres +/-

Property ID: LAWINNCA22

Quiet, country homestead in the middle of nowhere USA sound like what you’re looking for? Front porch swinging, listening to the wind blow and a whip-poor-will song while sipping sweet tea, or sitting in the sunroom drinking coffee watching the sunrise or perhaps watching the deer and squirrels from the living room window your style? This move-in ready, cozy, 2 bed/2 bath, 1,100 square foot wood frame house setting off the gravel road under the shade of tall hardwoods is waiting for you!

Located in the northeast part of Winn Parish in Sikes, LA this 22 acre +/- parcel sets on the West side of the D McCarty parish road. Half of this tract was clearcut about 7 years ago and has grown into a mixed hardwood thicket which provides ample vegetation for browse and cover to support the deer and other wildlife. The power line that cuts across it is the perfect spot for a food plot or feeder. This gentle sloping ground would make a large fishing pond as well or let it continue to grow for prime deer habitat. The back half of this parcel is covered in tall Red Oaks, White Oaks, Hickories and Gum trees. These mature hardwoods will be dropping acorns this fall and you need to be here when they do, because the deer sure will!

The yard boasts a variety of different tree and plant species including plum, pear, peach, persimmon, muscadine, dogwood, yellow-poplar, magnolia, tongue-oil, sweet-olive, rose, azalea and many others that add to the unique diversity of this tract. Birds and other animals thrive in diverse environments like this place offers. You could harvest plenty of fruits this year if you beat the wildlife to them!

The old wood-frame house has two bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. A third bedroom was converted to a laundry room but could be changed back. The kitchen has a refrigerator and a gas oven. Electricity is supplied by Entergy and the water comes from Sikes Water System. There is also a working water well that can be used also. Outside you will find a metal garage setting to the side of the house. Across the yard is a 30′ x 30′ shed setting on a concrete slab that has electrical outlets and a walled in workspace with air conditioner.

This place will not be on the market for long, so do not wait! Give me a call today and let’s go look!
