Summary: Baile Oaks Ranch is a very unique mixed-use recreational ranch with outstanding long-term investment potential. This 102.35-acre tract is located just 0.2 miles wet of Loop 304 along the north side of SH 7. The long frontage along SH 7 at the intersection of SH 21 likely has commercial development potential at some point in the future and the fact that the property has two additional points of frontage offer additional sub-division potential. The result is a property that has excellent interim use for recreational or homesite purposes but with an exit plan at the end of the investment.
Baile Oaks Ranch is located just outside of Crockett, Texas which was named after Tennessee statesman and Alamo hero Davy Crockett. Rumor has it that Davy Crockett camped here on his way to the Alamo. It is no doubt that he was likely following the historic route of Kings Highway otherwise known as El Camino Real de los Tejas which was a primary route for the Spanish colonization of Tejas. Crockett was a stop on this trail during that timeframe and later one of the gates to the west as Texas was established and settled. This area has rich history of Spanish and American settlers as well as the native Indian tribes that existed before that. Some of this history has been written but much of it has been lost to time. The offering of this ranch presents an opportunity for your family to write the next chapter in the story of Texas. Call today for your private tour of this rustic retreat.
Land Characteristics: The property has a wide range of appeal with immediate appeal for homesite, recreational and agricultural purposes. It is mostly wooded with several small pastures that are currently being utilized for hay production. The timber on the property is a mixture of native hardwood and pine that offers multiple areas of clean understory. Elevation on the property ranges from an approximate low of 300’ ASL to an approximate high of 350’ ASL. Three creeks converge at different places on the property and generally flow from south to north where they exit the property in the northeastern portion of the tract. The owner has developed creek crossings for all three creeks to enhance your ability to explore and enjoy the rustic appeal that the ranch offers. The three creeks along with two stock ponds offer ample water for livestock or wildlife purposes as well as adding recreational appeal for your family to enjoy.
Residential Improvements: The primary residence on the property is a three-bedroomed, two-bath manufactured home which is reported to have 1,680 square feet of gross living area. The home has a simple but low-maintenance exterior with front and rear patios but is somewhat unassuming until you enter the front door. This home is very nicely appointed with well above average interior finish-out and built-ins. The kitchen has a custom home feel with a large central bar, nice appliances and cabinetry as well as faux wood beams in the ceiling. Given the long-term potential of the property this is the perfect set of interim improvements that allow the owner to enjoy modern comforts while not over-improving the property. There is a second mobile home on the property which is a 1998 single-wide. This home has been gutted but would offer good potential for a ranch manager or as an overflow for guests if finished. The owner has also added a small shop building, a covered game cleaning shed and a storage building in addition to a small well house. The water well was drilled in 2020 and is reported to be a 493-foot deep well with a 7-inch casing and 20 GPM yield. These features offer a new buyer an opportunity to step in day one and enjoy the property without all the hard work of developing their own set of improvements.
Road Frontage: A major feature of this property is the extensive road frontage, particularly since it is so close and convenient to Crockett. The survey reports that there the southern boundary of this property has approximately 1,300 feet of frontage along SH 7 which is immediately adjacent to the SH 7 / SH 21 intersection. This frontage in such a high visibility area lends to the long-term potential of commercial pad sites along the SH frontage. The western portion of the property is reported to have approximately 740 feet of frontage along CR 2000 which is a smaller, less traveled County Road. Farm to Market 2076 fronts the northeastern corner of this property with approximately 213 feet of frontage. Multiple areas of frontage along multiple roads and in such close proximity to the county seat of Houston County is an excellent attribute for a long term investment.
Location: The property is located approximately 1.6 miles West of downtown Crockett along the north side of SH 7. From Loop 304 / SH 21 intersection, travel West approximately 0.2 miles to gravel road on right. Coordinates to the front gate are: 31.3107; -95.4815
Minerals: No owned minerals.
Easements: The primary easement of note is an electrical transmission line easement which runs through the extreme western portion of the property just west of CR 2000. The transmission line is a metal single-pole structure that appears to be well-maintained. There are also typical easements associated with electrical water and sewer that appear to be associated with the SH 7 frontage.
