River Ridge Retreat
River Ridge Retreat is a wooded 41-acre property located on a paved county road just seven miles north of Ada, OK, 90 miles from Oklahoma City, 120 miles from Tulsa and 150 miles from Dallas, TX. It is in the Byng District and only a few miles away from the school. With electric and rural water service running along the road frontage, this property has easy access to utilities.
More importantly, this property has a huge amount of natural beauty bundled in 41 acres. As you enter the property, you will see two oil wells that the seller owns and has agreed to remove and plug as part of the sale. After this, there is nothing but natural beauty.
Just past the entrance, there is a acre pond that looks perfect for fishing. Just to the southwest of it is a nice building site that would overlook the pond. But almost anyone can have a house on a pond. The far more exciting building site is just east of the pond overlooking a 1750-foot stretch of South Canadian River frontage. This vantage point marks an 80 ft elevation transition from the rock bluff that runs perpendicular to the river to the lower parts of the property that provide access to the water.
The bluff has a whimsical assortment of huge boulders that create rooms and halls that open to the hillside below. The owners son and friends used the property for Boy Scout camping trips and a small grill still stands ready at the top of the bluff. A trail has been cleared to make access to the river easy. As you drive or walk down from the bluff, the trail splits with one leg running alongside a boulder lined creek with multiple small waterfalls that gurgle their way down to the river. The other leg of the trail runs downstream and has multiple spots where you can easily access the river. Once on the river, you have multiple large boulders that extend out into the flow of the water. A perfect spot to sit and pick at the little fossils in the limestone rock, fish or play in the water, throw in a canoe and go for a float or wait until the summer and go for a long ATV ride down the river.
This property is ideal for someone looking for an ideal outdoor lifestyle property that plays a lot bigger than it actually is. If you are looking for a nice building or get away spot, close to town with an abundance of natural beauty and river access at a reasonable price, then please give us a call to schedule a showing of River Ridge Retreat.
