IMPROVEMENTS: A cozy approx.. 900 sq. ft. 2 Bed / 1 Bath home on approx.. 35 acres that sit alongside, but outside, the high-fence. This cabin would make a great weekend retreat or full-time residence for a ranch manager. It is located outside of the high fence, but with a private gate to access the high-fence right next to it. The ranch also includes a 30x70 insulated steel building used to store equipment and ATV’s. Beautiful and secure gated entrance protects the property and controls access to and from.

PROPERTY: Varied habitat among rolling terrain that offers areas of sandy loam soil to iron ore.  The vegetation and trees also vary as it includes areas of pine trees and areas of native east Texas hardwood and cedars. The terrain also features elevation changes that could potentially allow for a lake-site. Approximately 178 acres are enclosed with top-notch high-fence and predator wire. The remaining approximate 35 acres sits outside of the high-fence with its own access off of FM 1256. Water lines have been run underground to multiple sites throughout the high fence which allows for controlled water holes for the wildlife. A deep well of approx.. 1200 ft taps into the Wilcox aquifer and provides great water.

WILDLIFE: Superior genetic whitetails are plentiful within the high fenced area. Five years ago, the seller purchased 14, 180 inch plus bucks to stock the ranch. Also, he purchased 41 doe, 26 of which were AI bred for superior offspring. These does fawned and then were bred to a 370-inch breeder buck. There is also a small population of Texas Dall Rams with full curls. A few Aoudad remain within the high fence as well, but not a breeding population as no females are suspected to remain. No wild hogs are inside the high fence.

ADDITIONAL PERSONAL PROPERTY: There are 5, Hercules brand deer blinds, 2 of which are on platforms and 3 are sitting on the ground. Multiple ladder and bow stands are scattered throughout the property as well. Also, approximately 10 big protein feeders scattered throughout the property.
