Lost Creek Retreat
Over the years, many of the Land Doctors clients tell us that they just want a place to "get away". Since the start of the COVID pandemic, we hear that more and more. People are tired of being confined to small residential lots in the city and are looking forward to having more room to roam, explore, work and enjoy. Unfortunately, not everyone can just move out to the countryside. Work, family and other commitments require some of us to be in the OKC metro. What if there were an affordable property in OKC where you could be close to everything and still escape into the peace and tranquility of a natural setting?
Lost Creek Retreat is just that property. This 51.5 acre mol property is nestled between West Moore High School on the east, The Rock Assembly of God Church on the west and bordered by nice neighborhoods all around. The entry road on Pennsylvania Avenue is just south of the church and leads onto the property from the west. This portion of the property has two main features. One is a large lake that, according to our measurements on aerial photos, ranges in size from 2.5 acre to 5 acres depending on the season and rainfall. We have been told that the pond is a good crappie and catfish fishery. As such, we believe this indicates that even during the dry periods, the lake maintains a sufficient water level for supporting fish. Just south of the lake, is an area approximately 7 acres in size that is relatively open and out of the floodplain. This would likely be the best location on the property to build your dream house or to serve as the location of a future development.
To the south and east of the entry is a belt of large hardwood trees that grow along a tributary of Lost Creek. This area would be ideal for creating your ultimate urban escape. We can imagine this area being full of trails and creek crossings that would allow you to wander and explore in quiet solitude for hours on a property that is only 8 miles from Bricktown. Whether you like to hike, ride ATVs or horses, this would be a great place for trail riding. Bowhunting and small game hunting may also be possible along this corridor.
In addition, to serving as a private park, there is also some potential to turn this into an outdoor recreational development where your customers could come out and enjoy fishing the lake or exploring the trails. In addition, there are significant tax advantages for those who might want to create this sort of public access venue.
Ultimately, its up to you. If you want an affordable piece of land that you can build out to suit your need for outdoor activity in a metro location, then this would be a great place to build your forever home, fish the lake in the evenings when you get home from work and spend the weekend enjoying the trails or hunting in the woods. If you are looking for a unique property to pursue your passion of increasing outdoor access to the public or your private clients, then this property could also serve you well, particularly if you take advantage of the tax advantages associated with this type of activity. If you have any questions or would like to see the property, please call Eric Lynch at 405 664 6491.
