This 10 acre lake is surrounded by large pines, mature oaks, and dogwoods and screams quintessential east Texas property. The water is a classic tea colored and has numerous laydowns from the fallen trees that surround the lake. A small creek feeds the lake and there is both shallow and deep water. There is a small pier for you to relax and enjoy an east Texas sunrise or sunset.

In addition to good fishing there is a completely remodeled 2 bedroom/2 bath home that was completed in January of 2017.
