Summary: This 207-acre tract of land is situated in Rusk County, just 10 minutes southeast of downtown Henderson. The property boasts a combination of open pastureland and mixed, mature timber, providing an excellent habitat for both wildlife and livestock. With abundant surface water resources, including multiple springs, small drainages and frontage along Barnhardt Creek, the property is well-suited for a variety of recreational activities. Good perimeter fencing and a well-established interior road system are added benefits that add value and utility regardless of your plans for this property.
Land Characteristics: The tract features a diverse landscape with rolling hills and approximately 100 feet of elevation change. The bulk of the higher elevation is found on a centrally located ridge which runs north to south across the tract. From this point, you have tremendous views looking south towards the large creek bottom or east, which overlooks rolling meadows and timber-laden draws. Although there are currently no stock ponds on the property, there is an abundance of surface water which can be found in the numerous springs, small drainages and the much larger Barnhardt Creek, which crosses the western portion of the property. This large creek has a significant amount of water flow with high banks on the western side of the creek that is loaded with massive, mature trees. The abundant water and rolling topography likely offers multiple potential pond or lake sites. Waterfowl impoundments would also be possible in the Barnhardt Creek area. The property has good perimeter fencing and a good carrying capacity if cattle grazing is desired.
Terrain: Elevation on the property ranges from an approximate low of 380’ ASL to an approximate high of 480’ ASL. According to the FEMA maps, there are approximately 56 – 57 acres of the property that appears to be located within Zone A, which is the 100-year flood zone area. This area is limited to the western half of the property and is associated with Barnhardt Creek. It is noted that the road system facilitating access on this property was constructed as part of the oil and gas operations in the immediate area. The main road crossing the creek is extensive, with multiple large culverts, which provides worry-free, year-round access to the bulk of the property. There are multiple other well-maintained gravel roads throughout the property that result in very good access around the tract.
Improvements: Improvements on this property are limited to the perimeter fencing and roads. TCEQ reports that there are five water wells located on the property, which were originally related to the oil and gas production. It is possible that two of these have been abandoned and released to the owner for personal use.
Location: This property is located approximately 10 minutes southeast of downtown Henderson and just east of US Hwy 259. The northern portion of the property has frontage along CR 311.
Minerals: No owned minerals to convey.
Easements: Easements located on the property include multiple oil and gas well sites as well as ingress / egress roads which have been constructed to each well. There are seven total well sites on the property, but we have record that three of those have been plugged and abandoned (reports are available). All three of the abandoned sites have been plugged in the last two to three years and two of the sites appear to have been abandoned and handed back over to the surface owner. Other easements include multiple pipeline easement which cross from north to south in some areas as well as smaller lines that are located on the eastern portion of the property.
Utilities: Rusk County Electric crosses the northern portion of the property, so no easement would be required from a neighbor depending on where a future owner would want power. The property is located within the Minden-Branchfield WSC coverage area and it was reported that the water line runs along CR 311. Buyer should confirm that to their satisfaction.
