It even has a picket fence…

501 Arrowhead Drive in Bent Tree just hit the market with an asking price of $379,900.  Click here to link to the listing information.  The 5 bed, 4 bath home sits on a private cul-de-sac road that is surprisingly wide (by Bent Tree standards), especially considering that there are only two houses on that stretch of the road (once Arrowhead passes Stone Ridge Court).  Another surprise is the picket fence.  That is definitely a rarity in Bent Tree.  Click the listing photo below to link to a virtual tour.  Note – the listing says 5 bedrooms, the video tour says 4…

58 Tamarack Drive just sold for $260,500.  Click here for a post from 2015 (“Flipping Bent Tree”) that featured this same house.  That post gives the sales prices of the property in 2014 and 2015.  From $65,000 to $260,500 in less than four years.  The last two owners made improvements to the house and it is now a cool looking home overlooking the beautiful #1 fairway of the Bent Tree Golf Course.  All in all, it seems like a positive trend.

 

 

Bear News

September 9, 2012 - bear in Bent Tree

UPDATES:

  • “To the best of our knowledge, the bear family remains alive and well and has not been trapped. Since they have not returned to the Swim Club area, DNR is picking up their two traps from the property today.”  - Jill Philmon, General Manager Big Canoe, from July 18 email blast to BC
  • “Please Note: As you may know, the bears in Bent Tree are busy migrating around the property.  Bent Tree Public Safety asks that you do not leave trash, pet food, bird seed or any other edible material outside, in your vehicle, garage, porch or other accessible areas.  This would include the common trash pick up areas such as the mail center, golf course and pavilion. Lastly, remember to keep all exterior doors locked.” – Tom Fowler, General Manager Bent Tree, from July 20 email blast to BT

The subject of trapping/euthanizing “nuisance” black bears has been in the news this week.  Click here for a post from five years ago that addresses this same subject.  From that post you can link to even earlier posts on the subject. It is a sad situation that won’t get better unless people quit feeding the wildlife (whether intentionally or unintentionally).  The photo below is from 2011 and shows a bear trap in Bent Tree, set by the DNR to capture a nuisance bear.

Please do not feed the wildlife…

Birds…To Feed or Not To Feed

Yesterday’s post made me wonder about the pros and cons of bird-feeders.

Following are a few links I came across that have varying opinions on the pros and cons of backyard bird-feeders.
