Habitat & Topography:
The property offers a variety of mixed use habitat within the Cross Timbers Ecoregion. Most of the ranch is a blend between native grass pastures & open pecan orchards with nearly ¾ mile of Brazos River frontage. Heavily wooded areas with trees & brush indigenous to this area offer miles of intertwined riding trails. Extensive improvements have been made to the environment around the residence & in other areas of the ranch. The property primarily consists of sandy loam soils, with some clay loam as well. The main body of the ranch has approximately 30+/- Ft in elevation changes down to the lake. The property has a good blend of cleared pasture for grazing as well as heavily wooded trail areas, which are most desirable in this geographical region for scenic views, hunting & trail riding.
Take a drive from the main house down the all-weather road to the lake & you will see 20 plus whitetail deer on most days. This ranch has been lightly hunted over the past 20 years & the deer are plentiful, as well as Rio Grande Turkey & waterfowl on the duck ponds. Limited pigs as well as other varmints are found within the ranch.
The ranch has superior surface water. It has thousands of feet of easily accessible lake Granbury/Brazos River frontage. There are hundreds of yards of beaches & numerous swimming holes scattered along the Brazos, & a large boat dock with lifts. Two electric water wells are located on the ranch.
