Gainesville, TX Cooke Country Land 18.0000 acre for sale in Gainesville, TX

Welcome to Valentine Lake Fish & Wildlife! This exquisite high fenced property makes for the ultimate weekend get-a-way for the entire family. The 18 acre property hosts an 8' tall high fence around the perimeter with a 10' wide alley between the boundary barbed wire fence and the high fence, as well as high fenced pens inside the perimeter. The property is approximately 90% wooded, with mature white oak being the predominate species of trees.

The 2 acre Valentine Lake is stocked with a healthy population of game fish, and is a major attraction to waterfowl and game animals, and is 30' deep at the deepest point. The lake was professionally engineered and built by an expert in ponds and lakes, and has been professionally managed for fish and waterfowl.

The main structure on the property is a 40x50 fully insulated metal building with 14" high side walls. The building is divided into two parts - a shop area that is insulated with the interior also dressed with metal siding. Two 12x12 overhead doors plus a walk through door allow access to the shop side. The remaining portion of the building is a beautiful rustic apartment with corrugated metal ceilings and exposed wood trusses. The exterior walls are 6x8 Satterwhite D logs over the 4" steel columns and purlins with steel on the outside. The apartment area is all trimmed with native red heart cedar and the custom cabinets are made of knotty alder. Granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. The down stairs floors are all stained and scored concrete for long lasting beauty and low maintenance. There is NO sheetrock in this house - All steel and natural wood! The 4" of closed cell foam insulation behind the walls make this apartment VERY energy efficient. The large cedar pantry is a sight to behold. The rock wood burning fireplace with a blower fan provides all the heat you need, but of course, there is also central heat and air conditioning. All of the plumbing fixtures are the highest grade of Delta brand fixtures available. Upstairs is the sleeping loft with handscraped red oak flooring, and detailed wood and steel staircase, large cedar walk in closet and half bath.
