Nestled at the end of a blacktop road, but just minutes from downtown, lies Powell’s Shady Acre Ranch, a large, but manageable live water property with massive opportunity for nearly any buyer. This unique property offers a mixture of habitat types for the various wildlife on the property. Just inside the custom wrought iron entrance, an existing set of improvements, rich in character, calls this property home. Complemented by four separate cabins, these rustic outbuildings echo tales of a storied past. A perfect place for those with friends or larger families wanting to spend time together but prefer a little privacy as well. County water supplies the cabins AND the old vineyard located toward the center of the property providing an established utility, and opportunities for alternative build sites. Just past the cabins is a large metal barn to store all your farm equipment, implements, and “toys”. Traversing this magnificent property is basically effortless along the established road and trail network through a kingdom of hardwood timber what immediately catches your attention is the varied terrain, offering elevation changes of approximately 50 feet, painting a perfect canvas for those with a penchant for recreational adventures and tranquil solitude. But the property’s allure doesn't stop there, it’s water features truly set it apart as an oasis. While there are a couple of ponds on the property, the crown jewel, however, is Parker Creek that gracefully meanders through the southeast corner of the property. With deep banks shadowed by towering Oak and Sycamore trees, the creek presents a serene and picturesque setting with active waterfalls and babbling rapids showing strength during the driest summer months, eventually depositing its waters into the Trinity River. This confluence of water features offers not only aesthetic beauty but also a myriad of recreational opportunities. Generations to come will enjoy the fishing and waterfowl opportunities that the water features offer when they are not hiking trails or watching the native wildlife. Lastly, given its proximity to town, and home to one of the more popular universities in the state, this property is the epitome of investment, whether it be a long-term legacy ranch for future generations, or a shorter term with its development potential. This exquisite tract is a rare find and opportunity that doesn’t arise very often. When it does, it's pursued relentlessly by those longing for a taste of true Texas.
