Welcome to the Battle Creek Ranch, a stunning ranch located in the picturesque and highly sought-after Shackelford County, just 16 miles from historic Albany. This expansive property offers a unique opportunity to own a piece of North Texas history, having two significant geographical features that are well-known in North Texas. The ranch is nestled within a serene and private setting, surrounded by rolling hills with majestic oak trees combined with thick brush/creek bottom. With its stunning topography, the Battle Creek ranch sits apart from the ranch real estate market. The land features a diverse landscape, including the Red Gap Draw which is a unique red-dirt Texas hill with a large gap in it. It has various rock formations jutting from the soil and makes for great hiking, sightseeing, and an awesome natural hunting vantage point. One definitely knows standing amongst these hills that they are not the first hunter/gatherers to use these views to their advantage! The Red Gap escarpment overlooks the beautiful Battle Creek bottoms. This bottom is loaded with all types of game that thrive in this area. Battle Creek is one of the three main tributaries to Hubbard Creek Lake near Breckenridge and is one of very few creeks to flow north!! Whitetail deer, wild hogs, and turkey call this creek bottom home. There’s ample feed and water for these species and the hunting never disappoints! Alongside the creek is several areas that are ideal for cattle grazing having thick stands of Bermuda grass. A very productive water well is also located near the Bermuda pasture and is a huge bonus to this ranch. This water well is one of the better wells in this part of north Texas and provides ample water for livestock or could be piped to aid in drier times for game troughs or irrigation purposes. The hill just to the south of the Red Gap Draw rises significantly from the surrounding landscape. The views from this hill are stunning and would provide the perfect location for that home with a wrap-around deck! With just a 20-minute drive, you can be at Interstate 20. The ranch is approximately 100 miles from Ft Worth and 60 miles to Abilene via I-20 allowing any visitors/customers an easy drive to the ranch.
