A true oasis hidden in the trees, with professionally designed ponds, complete with a beautiful island where a doe has her fawn each spring, flowing creeks, waterfalls, and towering bald cypress and sycamore trees. Two springs and a 40' artesian well with pump ensure the water supply here stays flowing. A 3/2 brick house is on the property ready to be a home, an office space, or a rental. The right vision could turn this property into a boutique senior or veteran community, a pristine conservation easement property upon which to build a family legacy, or a beautiful homestead for the whole family.

The 177 acres have been impeccably designed and maintained. The varied topography provides spectacular views, open fields with natural grasses, hiking and walking trails through diversely wooded areas, and creek beds. The cedar elms, sycamores, live oaks, cypress, and Spanish oaks provide a welcoming habitat for dove and warblers, as do the old growth junipers. The natural grasses and underbrush are diverse and include Texas winter grass, little blue stem, tall grama, cedar sedge, meadow dropseed, persimmon, greenbriar, deciduous yaupon, and agarita. Healthy songbird, deer, turkey, and small mammal populations thrive here. The property taxes are maintained by a Wildlife Tax Valuation.
A running creek with pools and rock waterfall greet you upon reaching the property's center; towering cypress trees provide covered picnic areas on the banks.
A beautiful 4-acre lake sits near the property's center, with deep, clear water stocked with catfish and native bluegill. Just above this lake, an adjacent ~3-acre lake heads upstream towards a beautiful waterfall. The pristine conditions have been maintained by expert care takers to ensure proper water drainage, erosion prevention, dam maintenance, tree management, and water quality. Two live springs feed the creek that supplies the ponds.
An 40' deep artesian well that has been inspected twice but never heavily used. The well has a pump installed in case of heavy use, but has never stopped flowing by natural pressure. The creek at the wellhead runs into the two ponds, so the well can be used to maintain the ephemeral creek and pond levels.
A 3 bed, 2 bath brick home with carport sits shaded by the mature oaks on the bank of the widest part of the creek at the head of the larger pond. Municipal AND well water is available at the home.
A second 3 bed 2 bath brick home is at the entrance on 306 and is rented for $1000/month.
An old horse/livestock barn sits away from the home and is equipped with electricity and water.
The gravel roads that traverse the property have been well maintained and provide access for most types of vehicles.
NO HUNTING & NO FISHING are allowed on the property
