JYB Listings Troup Wares Cross Road 137 Acres
Just north of the Yellow Jacket Creek arm of West Point Lake (actually joins Corps of Engineer property line for a distance), this 137 acre property is close to Sunny Point, Clark, Ringer and Yellow Jacket Recreation Areas (camping and boat ramps). It is also close to the Georgia DNR Wildlife Management Area where for a $25 permit there are almost 10,000 acres available for hunting, hiking and horse riding. The lake itself is a popular 26,000 acre trophy fishing location. It’s less than one mile to a lovely neighborhood Italian Restaurant and 10 miles to Great Wolf Lodge Water Park on Interstate 85. Lagrange’s nearby industrial park, that stretches past the Kia plant, is one of the largest industrial parks in terms of acreage with a sustainability designation in the country.
The Subject Property has a new road entrance off paved Wares Cross Road, about 325 feet of frontage, secured with a two-wing gates with a combination lock; look for our sign 0.7 miles west of the US 27-Wares Cross Road intersection on the left hand (south) side of Wares Cross Rd. There is also about 210 feet of paved frontage on the east subdivision Waterview Drive. County public water and electrical utilities are available from both directions.
Topographically the property is rolling but the provided contour maps show a beautiful hilltop that offers panoramic views in all directions. It would make a gorgeous homesite and any interested buyer should make the hike to see for themselves. A creek bisects the property and the new road crosses over a culvert in a logical location to build a future dam if a lake was of interest. In the southwest portion there is a distance of about 200 feet that is shared with and can provide access to the Corps of Engineers West Point Lake frontage. From an engineering perspective the property lays where there is little unusable land. The creeks are well defined and the banks rise quickly to minimize floodplains and hydric soils.
The property has recently had the timber thinned and the more open canopy, where specimen oaks and similar species were left, allows the buyer to better see land use possibilities. While recreation and light residential living might be one current use; it’s easy to imagine a higher and better dedication given location, neighboring residential densities, and projected county growth (lack of available housing).
The listing broker has additional photos, videos and maps available, including a picture of a trophy buck taken by one of the logging machine operators, that can be provided and forwarded to prospects as well.
