Situated just northeast of Waco, Texas, the Leroy Place offers a rare opportunity to own a diverse, large acreage property while still being conveniently located just minutes from the major metropolitan areas in Texas. This diverse piece of land has been in the same family for over 50 years. It is believed that a major portion dates back to 1849 when Thomas Rhoads received the original land grant from the State of Texas.
With many large ranches being broken up and sold in todays market, it is easy to forget what it feels like to drive across the land and see for miles in every direction. That feeling is just what you get when you enter the gates of the Leroy Place. The main entrance brings you straight into the heart of the property. Traveling to the southeast you will traverse the hillside which leads you past one of three tanks located on this 660 plus acre property. As you continue you can see for miles to the northwest, looking towards the hills that lead back
to Waco. The highest point of elevation is 530 ft, which is also where you will find the largest tank measuring around 2 acres. Get ready to catch some amazing fish or hunt some of the various species of waterfowl that make this tank their home year after year.
Traveling back down the hill you will come to approximately 250 acres of cultivated farmland which is divided by three seasonal creeks. Roberts Creek and Cottonwood Creek meander from the eastern edge of the Leroy Place until meeting up with Elm Creek/Tehuacana Creek and then continue wandering to the western boundary. There is no shortage of water, cover and productive land on this diverse property.
The Leroy Place is set up to continue as a cattle and farm operation. This property would also make an amazing recreational property with its varied terrain, elevation changes and wildlife.
Take this opportunity to own one of the larger parcels of land left in McLennan County!
Significant elevation changes which allows for amazing views on top of the hill. Elevation rises from 430 ft by the creeks to 530 ft at the highest point on the southeast corner. Right at 100 of elevation change.
Property is heavily treed in areas, which provides well for the native wildlife. There is also approximately 340 acres of mixed native pasture and trees which provides desirable grazing.
There is an abundance of wildlife including whitetail deer, dove, bobcats, coyotes and a variety of others. It has been years since anyone has hunted, but at one time the highest elevation tank provided an excellent spot to hunt migratory waterfowl.
New fencing is being constructed on the boundary that lines Water Tower Road. Most of the perimeter fence is in good condition, however the perimeter fence condition is unknown on northwestern boundary due to its accessibility.
A water meter was purchased from the local water co-op and should convey with the property.
Electric is available at the main entrance to the property and should be easily accessible on the hilltop portion of the land.
Minerals are negotiable. Owner is believed to own 100% of the minerals, but no warranty or guarantees will be made.
A new survey has been ordered and will be made available when it is complete.
The property is currently being leased for grazing and farming.
