Secord Lake 83
Tucked away in the NE corner of Oakland County is where you'll find this 83 acre hunting camp. A winding gravel driveway takes you back along the pine covered ridge to the 1400 sq. ft. 3 bedroom ranch home. Home is in need of some TLC. Built in 1950, it hasn't been lived in for a few years. There are also a couple buildings and an attached 2 car garage for storage. The home has well, septic, and electric. Currently it is heated by propane, though natural gas is available at the road front. The area around the home is park-like, quiet, and adorned with towering pines and maples. There's an open area just east of the yard that functions as a food plot for the numerous deer and turkey that use the property. Wander a bit further east and you come to the wildlife pond, and winding trail that leads out into the wooded creek bottom and eventually to the creek itself. The creek is 4 to 5 feet in width and crosses the parcel from NW to SE, providing an important water source for the wildlife. It's also a favorite place for the local mallards and wood ducks.
The eastern end of the acreage is made up of high rolling hardwood ridges. Lots of nice oaks, maples, poplars and beech trees adorn the ridges. One ridge in particular provides a panoramic view out over the wooded wetland area that follows the creek across the parcel. Along the southern edge of the property there is a very nice hard surface gated driveway / road that leads deep into the property and eventually ends at a retired brine well location. The well used to be used by a local company to provide salt water for dust control of area gravel roads. The well is now out of service and the area around it is scheduled to be returned to its natural state this year. There is currently power run all the way back to the well site.
Numerous deer and turkey have been taken by the owners of the property, and there are many runways full of tracks that wind thru the entire acreage. A good population of ducks and deer use the creek bottom and wetland areas along it. There's a very nice deer blind nestled on a pine-covered ridge north of the house just waiting for you to use this Fall.
If you've been looking for a quiet wooded getaway location close to home, you need to come walk this one. Possibly fix-up the current home, or maybe build a new one perched back in the pines and enjoy the wildlife. Property has been recently surveyed, and well marked. Mineral rights are being retained by the sellers.
