Jacks Fork Farmsteads Parcel X is 8.41 professionally-surveyed acres. It’s about 10 miles from town and about a quarter-mile from a paved road. But that’s just the basics. This gorgeous parcel has over 1,000 feet of the Schull Branch, a sizable, year-round stream running right through the property. The buyer gets both sides of the creek.
Not only that, but It has a natural spring, also year-round, and full of tasty, beautiful watercress.
It has a little hidden meadow big enough for either a small pasture, or an enormous garden, or perhaps a little bit of both.
And finally, what isn’t meadow is big woods of the kind you find in moist bottom ground, not the scrawny post oaks and black-jacks you find on dry, south slopes, but big nut-trees you can’t get your arms around (I’ll bet).
And of course, when you combine all of these things at once, they’re beautiful in all seasons. The parcel is well-protected from the northwest winds of winter, and shady and cool enough to match the hottest days of summer.
ABOVE: This photo was taken standing on the greenspace on the east side of Parcel X. Having been taken in winter, it gives you a pretty good idea of the whole parcel. Directly in the foreground is the circular meadow, well-hidden from the rest of the world, and to its right you see the creek. The hill in the background is Parcel W, and if you can make out a small, almost horizontal, whiteish line in the distant left, that’s the access road on the other side of the parcel.
ABOVE: Here’s the spring at its source, smothered in crisp, tasty watercress.
ABOVE: The spring pools at the base of the hill for about a hundred feet.
ABOVE: Most of the large trees on the east end are either black walnuts, or the much rarer butternuts, a/k/a white walnuts.
ABOVE AND BELOW: The hidden meadow.
