Description

Merritt Mountain – 29.4856 +/- acres available for sale in Sabine Parish, Louisiana

This property offers a unique opportunity for owning a premiere property on Toledo Bend Lake.  The property is commonly referred to as Merritt Mountain.

  • The property has considerable water frontage, mostly high bluffs, affording a view of the lake that is unequaled.
  • The property has an interesting history. It was once the site of a fire lookout tower, as the site is elevated and affords one of the greatest views of the lake and surrounding areas.
  • In the 1970’s, Mr. Cliff Ammons, former state representative and the recognized “father” of Toledo Bend Lake, developed the property into a sanctuary for the community. The development included the Tom Sawyer Chapel, a replica of a paddle wheel boat.  Made of steel, the “chapel” still remains on the property. Though closed now, the facility served as the host of many events, including revivals, weddings and political campaigns.
  • The property once included an amphitheater where sunrise services were held. The former site of the theater provides an area within the waterfront bluffs for the construction of a boat house.
  • A bald eagle has chosen the property as its nesting site.
  • The sellers recently had the property cleared of all pine timber, leaving all the large moss draped hardwood trees standing.
  • A hard road base is in place that leads to the top of the “mountain”.
  • Utilities (electric and water) are available to the property.
  • The property does have a servitude for a small graveyard.
  • While the property could be subdivided, this property offers the opportunity to own the premiere waterfront home estate site on Toledo Bend Lake.
