The covered patio with built in grill overlooks the beautiful back yard toward the wooded pastures.  A second patio area across the yard allows relaxation under the trees, or a campfire during the cooler months. The attached garage provides plenty of space for 2 vehicles and other storage needs. Quality and efficiency is abundant throughout, including Anderson windows and exterior doors, two Trane high efficiency HVAC systems, and a newer high quality roof. The home’s electrical system is “generator ready”, in case of a power outage.

There are two bedrooms and one full bath. The adjacent office for the hanger, with ¾ bath, was constructed in a manner that would easily allow expansion of the apartment by an additional bedroom and bath.

A beautiful stone and metal entryway, with an electronic gate, affords secure and attractive access from the highway. The crushed stone driveway, bordered by nice grasses, extends almost one mile to the home, which has a paved circular drive and is surrounded by large trees, a manicured lawn, colorful landscaping, and an irrigation system. The fencing throughout the property is maintained to perfection, including numerous cross-fences, access gates, and cattle guards.  A very nice horse barn, complete with water, electricity, and additional covered storage, is located near the main home.

LAND: The land consists of 585 acres, approximately 50% is wooded, with varied terrain and some elevation changes throughout the property. Two creeks, Wolf Creek and Panther Creek, cross the property, supporting great habitat and drainage. Large oak and pecan trees line the creek bed areas. There is approximately 107 acres of highly improved coastal grasses for cattle grazing, or cutting for hay production. The high quality coastal grasses on the ranch have been developed through testing and consultation by the Noble Foundation. 

 Excellent fencing encloses the perimeter of the property, while several cross fences manage livestock access.  All areas of the property are accessible by truck or ATV, utilizing the network of roads that meander throughout the property and along the perimeter.  The ranch includes over 4300’ of road frontage along FM 103, and over 3600’ of frontage along FM 2849 to the north.  There is a vacant building site along the north border of the property, with electric service, a water well, a separate gated entrance from FM 2849, and cattle pens.

WATER:  Several large ponds scattered throughout the property, offer plentiful water sources to wildlife and cattle.   The house and the hangar/apartment each have their own dedicated water wells, while a third well is present on an additional vacant home site along northern portion of the property.  There is a windmill powered water well near the cattle pens, providing supplemental water to the pasture.  

WILDLIFE:  The property provides an excellent natural habit for wildlife, with its thick wooded cover and available food and water sources. There are an abundance of deer, turkey, wild hogs, and dove, while coyote, bobcat, various birds, and other wildlife all make their homes here. Located less than 3 miles from the Red River, the whitetail deer in this area are of good quality and this ranch, has been hunted only occasionally, therefore game is not pressured to to leave the large property.
