Merchantable Timber With A Small Pond In Eastern Texas


PRICE REDUCED! Timber, pasture, water, minerals, a hilly terrain….this place has it all! Conveniently located halfway between Houston and Dallas, and only 15 minutes northwest of Grapeland via blacktop roads, is this diverse and historic East Texas ranch. This property is being offered on the market for the first time in over 100 years! Access is excellent, with 3 separate entrances from CR 103 (blacktop paved road) and a trail system meandering through most of the property. Approximately 1/3 of the land is an open pasture with scattered trees (suitable for grazing), with the remaining 2/3 of the land being wooded (roughly half pine, half hardwoods). There is a 40-acre section of pine plantation, planted in 2013, which will be ready for a thinning in a few years. There is also a substantial amount of merchantable native timber on the property. The terrain consists of rolling hills with over 100 ft. of elevation change across the property, with only a small portion of the property on the southern end being in the flood plain.

Hunting for deer, hogs, and waterfowl should be excellent. Diverse habitat and terrain offers an ideal environment for nearly all species of wildlife in the area. For the waterfowl hunter, one of the highlights of the property is the natural “duck marsh” wetland (approx.. 15-20 acres) located on the south end of the property. This area is just begging to be developed into a duck hunter’s own private “honey hole”.

The seller is believed to own all of the minerals and will convey 50% of the minerals owned to the buyer. There is currently no production on the property, however, several pipelines go across the property. Whether you are a hunter, investor, cattleman, or all three….this place has a lot to offer! The property lies within both Houston and Anderson Counties. Shown by appointment only. Call today to schedule a showing.
