Located on the remaining portion of historic Perseverance Plantation, established by the Filhiol family in the early 1800Ã¢Â€Â™s, this unique property lies between four-lane Highway 165 and the Ouachita River. The main dwelling on the farm has over 2,000 square feet. About half of the square footage of the dwelling is a 15Ã¢Â€Â™ x 83Ã¢Â€Â™ manufactured home concealed within the structure. The manufactured part is off the ground with a crawlspace. Two wings, one on each side, were later constructed, forming a U-shaped structure, with a large brick patio with flowerbeds within the U-shape. The wings, carport, and workshop were built on a slab. The east wing is 18Ã¢Â€Â™ x 26Ã¢Â€Â™ and the west wing, 19Ã¢Â€Â™ x 26Ã¢Â€Â™. A 19Ã¢Â€Â™ x 24Ã¢Â€Â™ two-vehicle carport extends from the west wing with a 10Ã¢Â€Â™ x 19Ã¢Â€Â™ workshop/storeroom on the other side. The old construction as well as the new construction have the same Hardi board outside wall around the entire structure. That means the former manufactured home now has two walls and two roofs, which make for excellent insulation. The entire structure has a metal roof. There are four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Two walk in closets and other closets provide for much storage space. The west wing has a kitchenette. The main kitchen and dining room are located in the older part of the structure. Between the house and levee are over a dozen improved variety pecan trees. In addition, there are cherry trees, peach trees, pear trees, Japanese persimmon trees, an apple tree, and about a dozen mayhaw trees. There are also sever other native pecan trees on the property. A Native American Ceremonial Mound that is on the national archaeological registry dominates the southeast corner of the property. Nearby is a building that has air, heat, water, electrical, and sewage that can be made into another dwelling. Thirteen acres located between the levee and river are covered in huge wild pecan and oak trees, which provide a haven for squirrels, birds, and other wild life.
