Located just outside of Opelousas, and about 20 minutes or so from Lafayette, this wonderful piece of property is a hunting paradise in the making. The total acreage is approximately 289 acres which consists of 144.3 acres of WRP (outlined in blue on the map), 136 +/- acres of woods (outlined in yellow on the map, acreage includes deeded right of way to woods), and 2 camp/homesites (outlined in red on the map) of approximately 4 +/- acres and 5 +/- acres. The WRP has not been planted yet which will allow the new owner to have some input as to where the food plots and shallow water areas will be placed. There is approximately 400-500 acres of neighboring property that has also been enrolled in WRP that has not been planted yet. When all of this WRP is planted and starts growing up it will be a big buck paradise as the deer population currently in the area will have plenty of cover to expand to. Wood ducks and other small game are abundant in the area and the woods which are free of any encumbrances or programs has a cypress bottom that could be opened up for some more duck hunting opportunity. The wooded acreage may possibly be eligible for conservation easement programs down the road which could possibly provide some income if so desired. The two camp/homesites are secluded but minutes away from the conveniences of town. Electricity is on the property and city water provided by the town of Leonville is nearby. There is also some additional acreage that may be available (outlined in black on the map) consisting of two 11 +/- acre tracts not enrolled in WRP and one of which has a metal barn. This type of property, this close to Opelousas and Lafayette does not become available very often and will only get better with time. Instead of driving 2-3 or more hours to North Louisiana you can have your own place right here. Don’t hesitate and miss out!
Asking price is $2250.00 per acre for the woods and WRP. The asking price per acre for the camp/homesites is $5000.00 per acre. The asking price for the possible additional acreage has not been determined yet by the seller but may be able to be negotiated.
