Description

This property is located just outside of Dedemona Texas. The Texas State Historical Association lists Desdemona, on State Highway 16 in the southeastern corner of Eastland County, as one of the oldest extant Texas settlements west of the Brazos River. Sometime around 1857 a group of settlers built a family fort for protection from the Indians.

Early settlers endured great hardship to own this much coveted property. The McKillip family purchased this property in 1961 and built a prosperous farming operation. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a once highly productive ranch, that is ready for the next generation's agriculture producer.

246.+- acres of sandy soil with rolling terrain that is ideal for cattle ranching . Great elevation changes provide spectacular views of the surrounding area. Ample areas with Post Oak tree cover make for excellent wildlife habitat and shade for livestock. Retired peanut fields would be great to sprigg in Coastal Bermuda for a hay or a cattle operation. The property has very strong water and was once irrigated with a side roll irrigation system. Historical crops include peanuts, watermelon, and hay. A retired turkey housing and feeding facility exists on the property.

The home is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, with a large kitchen/den, front sitting room, and a laundry room. The sitting room could also be used for an office. as it is just off the front foyer. The kitchen has original appliance and cabinets. Most of the flooring dates from the time the house was built in 1961. Just off the back of the house is a 2 car carport and attached storage room.

The ranch is located 1 mile from the intersection of Highway 16 and Farm to Market 8. It is 1 Hours South West of Fort Worth Texas, 2 Hours West of Abilene, Texas, and 20 minutes Northwest of Stephenville. Texas. The access and proximity to The Cowboy Capital of the World, make this property great for a horseman s operation. The sandy soil and cross fenced pastures are nice for horses. Several good places for arenas and working pens are near the highway frontage. A growing Tarleton State University and the popularity of rodeo has created a need for boarding rodeo livestock. Horse owners often seek to rent bunkhouses and boarding outside of Stephenville. This would be a great property to build a bunk and board facility.
