This large scenic ranch features rolling elevation changes that overlook a recently expanded 15-acre lake and lush creek bottoms lined with large mature oak. The lake is habitat for a significant population of wild ducks while the creek bottom areas of the property offer cover for deer, turkey, and hogs. There are several prime home sites on the property that would provide panoramic views of the property and for several miles beyond. Two, 1-acre, year-round stock tanks afford additional water to support wildlife and livestock. This expansive property will allow endless opportunities for recreation and relaxation for the entire family, or families. The diverse features currently support great hunting, hiking, ATV riding, horseback riding, canoeing in the lake, or just sitting to enjoy the many views and the quietness. I have spotted, or noted signs of deer, turkey, hogs, coyote, ducks, dove, and quail, during my visits to this property. Stocking the lake will provide fishing opportunities for years to come. The property is easily accessed, only 8 miles west of HWY 287 at Bellevue. There is road frontage on two county roads that adjoins the entire north and south boundaries of property, approximately 0.7 miles each. There are gates along both roads to access the property. Electricity is also available at along both road frontages. Good fences enclose the perimeter of the property, which is currently grazed by a small herd of cattle. There are several cross fences, working pens, and an enclosed 30x50 metal barn with two 10x50 overhangs. A very nice 15-acre coastal field, at the northeast corner of the property, is separately enclosed. Pictures and aerial maps do not begin to show the true beauty and unique characteristics of this property, it must be seen to be appreciated.
