DESCRIPTION: Itâs the little things that earn this place the title of Cowboy Cool like the squeak of the windmill, the chirps of the frogs in the creek, and plenty of grazing for the horses. Whether you like to entertain friends or enjoy your solitude, thereâs a whole passel of appeal stuffed into this little place. An open grassy pasture is fenced off on the west side. The rest of the property boasts very nice trees âmostly oaks and elms in the front, heavier native pasture in the back mak-ing a refuge for deer, turkey and other wildlife. Jackson Branch, a seasonal creek, runs through the east side of the property.
A charming cabin constructed of rough cedar siding built in the pioneer Texas Country style is shaded by large oak trees and enclosed by a rail fence. Porches, decks and a rock patio connect the separate bunk house to the main house and extend the living space to the outdoors. The house has a living area with a stone fireplace, dining area, ½ bath, and kitchen with granite countertops and utility room with washer/dryer hookups downstairs. Upstairs is a large bedroom, walk-in closet and big bathroom with a claw-foot tub. French doors open to an upstairs deck overlooking the creek. Thereâs even a shower on the deck in case you want to enjoy a ânaturalâ experience. The house has been customized throughout with the use of lots of native cedar accents â wainscoting, stair railings, kitchen cabinets, etc. The house has central heat/air and the units are big enough to support the addition of 2 more bedrooms and a bath that were never built. Same for the septic sys-tem. The bunk house has only one room and is currently used for storage but electricity and plumbing is in place so it could be finished out if desired. Beyond the windmill is a very nice 2-3 stall horse barn also constructed of rough cut cedar with a center isle, stalls on the left, room for hay storage and a tack room on the right. Stairs lead to a large bonus room upstairs. Welded wire and pipe pens, and a huge arena round out the package. Two other metal buildings have been used for a workshop and storage. The barn and both metal structures have electricity.
Two water wells are connected to the house but only one is used. It is thought to be about 75 ft. deep and produces 35+ gpm. The other well was originally drilled as an oil well â they didnât hit oil but they got a tremendous water well. The seller was told it could produce 1000 gpm (un-tested). Think of what you could do with a water well like that! Things like constructing ponds to stock with catfish come to mind.
If you like hosting parties thereâs a perfect place down by the creek. A concrete slab makes a great little dance floor and the lights are already strung through the trees. If your life style includes eve-rything from quiet country mornings to hosting horse play days and lively parties under the trees, this place is your kind of place!
