For the hunting and fishing enthusiast, or cattleman, this property offers just about everything. Its eastern boundary straddles the Bowie River, twenty acres are in hardwoods, and 60 acres are in cross fenced pastures. It has two stocked ponds, seven deer-stands, and a pecan orchard.
For the cattle farmer it has a 40’ by 50’ cypress livestock barn with six stalls, tool room, feed and tack rooms and an equipment room. Nearby are two storage buildings. In recent years it has handled 60 head of cattle.
At the entrance corner on Mathis Lane, to the attractive hilled sportsman’s playground, is a wonderfully landscaped entrance drive to the three-bedroom log home nestled in a lush island of flowering trees and gardens. You can’t help but enjoy the outside with the wide wrap-around covered galleries and BBQ patio on the far side; and the convenient attached two car garage.
The rustic-but-loaded-with-creature-comforts log house began life as a small manufactured home and that area is now the dining room with its gas log stone fireplace, a sitting area, and an updated granite countered, stainless-steel- appliances-kitchen. There is a wonderful master suite at one end of the house; and at the other a terrific addition of a garden level den with wrap-around windows, a 16-foot ceiling, and another soaring stone-clad wood burning fireplace which opens onto the patio. It’s designed for casual comfort and entertaining.
Mt. Olive is in a very beautiful rural area southeast of Jackson about 43 miles east of Brookhaven on four-lane Highway 84.
