The historical Buck Creek Farm on the Brazos River has not been available since 1880! This is a very rare offering of a large live water ranch with stunning views, wildlife-rich wooded terrain, and very fertile soils located in an extraordinary bend of the river between Lake Granbury and Lake Whitney. It is located near the community of Nemo, just outside of Glen Rose. The property is peaceful and quiet, and has been manicured and kept pristine. It is a very productive piece of property.
Water: Buck Creek boasts 1/2 mile of Brazos River frontage, and being on the inside lower edge of the river bend, it has great access to the river. There are three water wells. One near the river at 325 depth was drilled in 1966 and produces roughly 25 gpm with a static depth of 70. Two were drilled in 1988, each at about 375 depth that produce about 12 gym with a static depth of 200. The average annual rainfall is 32 inches.
Capacity: The ranch has historically been able to carry approximately 350 cows, and it can produce about 1,800 2,000 rolls of hay each season during normal years.
Improvements: The main home is a 1920s stone farmhouse that was remodeled with two new additions in 1990. It has approximately 3,850 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, two wood-burning fireplaces, central heat and air, an alarm system and a steel roof. Historical windows and other features of the home originated from local cavalry camps, hotels, and a sanitarium near Cleburne. There is a guest cabin that overlooks the creek with about 1,800 square feet and a steel roof. It was remodeled in 2008, also has 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. There is also a large metal barn with about 5,500 square feet of work and storage space. Other features of the ranch include two sets of working pens in great condition, buried power to the main home, and a paved blacktop ranch entry road.
Land: The productive coastal bermuda fields in the Brazos River bottom are remarkable. The primary soil types consist of very shallow, clayey soils, and deep loamy and alluvial soils. Cottonwood, pecan, bur oak, and black walnut trees can be found along the areas that gradually slope down to the river banks. Buck Creek Farm is 1/2 mile wide and 3 miles long, in the shape of an original river survey.
Location: The farm is located 10 miles East of Glen Rose, just south of Highway 67. It is 50 miles from Fort Worth, and 70 miles from Dallas or Waco.
Minerals: 20% minerals and a surface use agreement are available with an acceptable contract. There is not any current production.
Taxes: The farm is assessed with an agricultural valuation, with taxes of approximately $5,000 per year.
