It is certainly an understatement to say that land in Petal, MS is hard to come by, but 200 +/- contiguous acres for sale on the open market in Petal School District is absolutely unheard of! This is an extremely rare opportunity to acquire a large parcel of land in Petal at an outstanding price.
The property lies in the Sunrise/Indian Springs Community of Forrest County along Luther Carter Road, southeast of Petal in Sections 23 and 24, Township 4 North, Range 12 West. This land has been in the family for five generations serving as an income producing farm in the production of timber and cattle. It has been a way of life and a means of livelihood, while also providing the family a lifetime of memories in the field while hunting deer, turkey, and quail.
The west side of the property extends over 1,800’ along Luther Carter Road and has a double-gated entrance about mid-way. The terrain has great elevations, and the timber consists primarily of Long Leaf Yellow Pine managed by prescribed burning.
A good interior road system extends into another 80 +/- acre tract to the east. This parcel is heavily wooded with pine and hardwood timber. The topo here has the potential to support a large private lake site of 20-30 acres offering numerous picturesque home locations overlooking the water.
This property has many benefits and desirable features for potential buyers. The location is in Petal, MS, one of the state’s top ranked public schools. It has an outstanding layout for housing development potential making it a great buy and hold for builders and developers. It is also ideally suited for an individual who may be looking for an exclusive family estate where they can enjoy privacy and all the recreational benefits of owning land while hunting, farming, and spending time with their family in the great outdoors.
