After many years of ranching, this young-at-heart couple is ready to slow down a little, so they are offering their ranch up for the next generation to enjoy. It is very private, being located at the end of a gravel road 2.7 miles from FM 581.
Before we talk about he house, letâs get familiar with the land. The terrain varies from gently rolling grassland with scattered trees to hilly. There is even a deep canyon along the north side with dense brush and limestone rock outcroppings.
The tree cover varies from light to heavy and everything in between and includes cedar (the primary tree cover), live oak, elm, sumac and Spanish oak
. The center of the property where the house is located is one of the highest points with almost a 180-degree view for miles
. There is a higher hill in the southwest corner of the ranch that offers more distant views.
Two nice stock tanks
provide water for the livestock and wildlife. They are stocked with catfish and the fishing is good. Wild turkeys and Whitetail deer are plentiful
. There are 3 water wells
on the ranch. The owner reports that the newest well that serves the house is 320 feet deep and produces 60 gallons per minute
. It has a 1¾ hp submersible pump. Another well near the house is no longer used much, but is 248 feet deep and produces 4-6 gpm. The third well is located near one of the tanks in the pasture. It has a windmill pump (needs servicing) is 260 feet deep and produces 30 gpm.
The very comfortable three bedroom-two bathroom brick home
is located at a high area near the middle of the ranch where you can enjoy the great views and look over much of the ranch. The house has 3434 sq. ft. under roof, which includes 2278 sq. ft. of heated and cooled living space, a 2-car garage and an open breezeway between the living area and the garage. A large fireplace with a wood heater insert
is in the corner of the living room. The fireplace, along with the storm windows and heavy insulation, aids considerably in savings on the energy bills year-round. The kitchen has an abundance of storage and is large enough for a lot of visiting while the cook is at work. Another benefit of the house is that every doorway is at least 36â wide, providing ease of mobility and moving furniture. Several large trees shade the spacious yard
and makes for a great area to enjoy for adults and children alike.
The outbuildings include a good barn with cattle working pens and a chicken house.
The garden spot is ready and waiting for the next crop and there is room for a much larger one when you are ready to expand.
Itâs not often that a ranch of this size, with a nice home, comes on the market, so donât wait too long to call us to make an appointment. This may be just what you are looking for.
