Highly Improved Acreage In The Community Of Bullard In TX

Description

Location / Directions:  This property is located in the southern portion of Smith County along the S/S of FM 344 just two miles NE of the US Hwy 69 / FM 344 intersection (Bullard).  This property is within 10 – 15 minutes of Tyler and is approximately two miles from the Bullard K-12 school system.  The property is uniquely set in a very desirable area with upscale residential neighborhoods, including a B&B, vineyards, winery and spirits tasting sales outlets as well as one of the Tyler areas most upscale four-star gourmet restaurants.

Land:  This tract is gently rolling with elevation ranging from an approximate low of 380’ to an approximate high of 480’.  Generally speaking, the tract slopes downward from north to south (away from the FM frontage) with the rear 3 – 4 acres located in the flood zone associated with a creek that crosses the rear of the property.  The bulk of the property is open, highly improved pasture with the rear five acres associated with the creek being mature mixed timber.  This area adds recreational appeal and hunting opportunities.  There is a nice pond in the rear third of the property that is estimated to be just under one acre in size.  Highly improved pasture/hay meadows have been developed through maintaining the land utilizing soil sampling and applying powered lime as needed.  In addition, the land has been naturally improved via organic materials as a result of cattle grazing and working the residue back into the soil.  These environmentally friendly processes have significantly reduced the need to irrigate in moderately dry periods.    

Improvements:  The property is improved with two residences, a large hay barn, equipment shed/shop, covered pens, multiple loafing sheds, good perimeter and cross fencing, a good road system and the bulk of the property is irrigated utilizing two deep wells.  The two homes include a nicely appointed custom residence which is located in the central portion of the property and was reportedly constructed in 2000 and has 2,145 SF of GLA.  This home has three bedrooms, two and a half baths, a large wrap porch (3 sides) and a covered rear patio.  The second home is a smaller residence located along the FM frontage that was reportedly constructed in 1951, has 864 SF of GLA which has 2BR/1Bath a large laundry/storage room and a one-car garage.  This structure was recently remodeled and updated including a new high-efficiency, central HVAC unit.  The hay barn has R-panel siding and roof and is approximately 40’ x 60’ in size with 16’ interior clearance to accommodate significant hay storage.  It is situated in the rear half of the property in the same area as the equipment shed/shop that is estimated to be approximately 2,500 SF in size and a second, older pole barn that is approximately 35’ x 45’ in size.  The property is separated into eight fenced pastures to allow for cattle rotation and segregation of areas reserved for hay production.  There are various areas of professionally built, pipe pens and alleys integrated into the fencing to facilitate ease of cattle movement and feeding.  This includes a covered set of stalls (approximately 30’ x 45’) in the central portion of the property near the main residence.  The two deep wells are reported to be approximately 262 feet deep (State well #222165) with a yield of 80 GPM and 272 feet deep (State well #222164) with a yield of 120 GPM).  The two deep wells, metered electrically and separately from the residences, are used to provide a source of freshwater for cattle in all areas of the property.  In addition, the wells are utilized to supplement water levels for the pond on the property.  From the rear lake, water is distributed using a high output PTO pump into the underground system to the various water risers that drive the Ocmis Automatic Reel System.  There is a well-maintained road that leads from the FM 344 frontage approximately 2,800 feet to the rear third of the tract (associated with the Ag improvements).  Overall, the improvements are considered to offer good utility and appeal for various purposes but leave room for the development of your dream home if desired.
