Overview: Nestled in the serene landscapes east of Alto, in the southern portion of Cherokee County, this 207.7-acre ranch offers an idyllic retreat for those seeking a blend of pastoral charm and natural woodland allure. Located just north of the SH 21 corridor and just west of the Angelina River, the property has two access points via two different county roads. Beaver Creek Ranch is a diverse property with very appealing terrain, excellent mixed hardwood and Pine timber and is rich with surface water in various forms. This is a property that needs to be seen in person to truly be appreciated.
Terrain and Elevation: The ranch is characterized by its gently rolling terrain, offering a varied elevation that ranges from approximately 250' to 370' above sea level. This 120-foot elevation change, while significant, unfolds across the property in gentle slopes, avoiding any severe topographical challenges and enhancing the land's natural character and utility. Throughout the property, small hillsides offer outstanding views of various portions of the property and neighboring area. The result is an extremely diverse feel when touring the property that has a new view around every corner. It is also noted that a series of draws and natural springs in the western portion of the property as well as multiple good “pinch points” likely offers a suitable site for construction of a larger surface water feature. It is somewhat rare to have such a good topographic feature on a property that would allow the potential for added value in the form of a larger lake.
Surface Water: Water is a defining element of Beaver Creek Ranch, with four existing stock ponds and numerous sites suitable for the development of larger water features, thanks to the abundant spring water and favorable topography. Beaver Creek is a nice size creek with year round live water that makes up the northern boundary of the property. This creek provides a perennial water source, enhancing the land's ecological diversity and utility but also adds a unique aesthetic component due to the winding creek and massive, mature hardwood and Pine timber that are scattered throughout this area. This creek, along with the strategically placed ponds and potential for expanded water features, underscores the property's suitability for livestock, wildlife habitation, and recreational fishing.
Timber and Land Management: A standout feature of the estate is its exceptional timber quality, with large blocks of mature hardwoods and pines dominating the terrain. The blocks of mature timber have a well-established canopy which has fostered a clean, open understory that accentuates the rolling landscape, making it particularly inviting for hunting and outdoor exploration. The timber not only adds to the property's recreational appeal but is also undoubtedly a critical value component, offering potential revenue streams through sustainable land management practices if desired. Most nature enthusiasts would place significantly more value on the timber in place due to the unique recreational appeal.
Location and Accessibility: Current access to the ranch is from the southern side via the dead-end of CR 2515, which is off of FM 241. There is additional frontage along the eastern side of the property via CR 2525 which could be developed as a primary access point. The strategic location near major roadways, coupled with the natural seclusion afforded by its topography, makes this property a rare find.
Summary: This 207.7-acre ranch in Cherokee County is a testament to the natural beauty and agricultural potential of Northeast Texas. Its diverse landscape, rich in timber and water resources, offers a sanctuary for native wildlife, including deer, wild turkeys, and various bird species, making it an ideal locale for hunting, fishing, and outdoor recreation. With its unique blend of features and strategic location, this property stands as a prime opportunity for those seeking a private retreat or a lucrative land management venture.
