271.55 acre Ranch with live water. The property has over 3,000+/- feet creek frontage along both sides of Jackson Creek. Situated off scenic highway 337 proudly displays the best features found in the "Land of 1,100 hundred Springs". The old Pearl brewery commercials captured the magic of the highly diverse ecological system that runs from Lost Maples State Natural Area over the rugged hilltops towards Medina, TX. This ranch sits majestically in the landscape with spectacular views, live water and live springs displaying natures finest. The habitat created by this unique area creates a mecca for turkey, white tail, black buck, elk, axis, feral hogs and aoudad. No hunting activity for 8+ years make wildlife sightings popup throughout the day. Birding on the ranch is spectacular with sightings of bobwhites, Audubon Orioles, black capped vireo, golden cheek warblers and 100+ turkeys that parade by regularly. The vast amount of hardwoods add to the nature experience with bigtooth maples, madrones, basswoods, chinquapin oaks, live oaks, elm, persimmon, Texas ash, escarpment cherry, and walnut just to name a few.
The best wildlife management practices have been applied for years with targeted cedar management, reintroduction of native grasses, habitat development and erosion control. The ranch has a well-established wildlife management designation as do most of the surrounding ranches. Near-by ranches also contribute to the health of the wildlife in the area. The ranch boasts of large oaks and deep soil. Several pastures would be great for horses or to bring out the farmer in you.
Choosing a home site with a spectacular view or a home site nestled on the banks of the creek will be the discussion as you sit and watch the parade of wildlife go by. A bonus is the rich history of Jackson Creek Road, your new address, which was the hub of a small town called Tuff from 1883-1930. The original school house and post office are within 1 mile and the old stage coach road meanders thru the property. The ranch itself boasts of a double log cabin separated by a traditional dog-run. The water for the cabin is spring fed. The cabin has been updated with a kitchen, bathroom and eating area. Beside the cabin is a large hand-dug stone cistern with notches in the stone from the rope used to harvest the water. Modern day Jackson Creek Road is a well maintained county road off of scenic highway 337 which was named by Texas Monthly magazine number 18 on its list of "75 Things We Love About Texas" in its April 2006 issue. Many have dubbed parts of 337 as the Swiss Alps of Texas.
