Nestled in the Deep Creek valley of McCulloch County is a gem of a ranch, truly a rare find in this part of the world. Not only does this ranch have great scenery, it has an awesome 25 acre lake ! There are very few ranches with a lake this large in the Texas Hill Country.
The 571 acre ranch has paved access on a quiet farm to market road. As you enter the ranch, you are facing a ridgeline of tree covered hills to the west. That is the view across the valley from the quaint farmhouse.
Then you can take a short ride into the center of the ranch, and the view opens up on a gorgeous 25 acre lake! Big enough for boating on. Or you can canoe, fish, or windsurf. Almost all the bank area is clear and free of brush for easy access to the water. The water is relatively clean, with minimal moss. This lake is a great recreational asset for any family.
The ranch has a variety of trees, including a number of live oaks and mesquite, plus a few elms and even a few pecan trees. It has several fields that are free of brush and mesquite, and they have excellent dove hunting. In addition, there are huntable populations of quail and turkeys! The whitetail deer are plentiful.
The farmhouse is in relatively good shape, with hardwood floors. And it currently sleeps 13, just right for hosting gatherings for family and friends. It has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Close to the house is the windmill and the cistern tower.
A rustic barn is still in use and in fairly good condition. It adds character and history to the ranch. Next to it is a small set of pens that are usable. So the new owner can generate income from agriculture as well.
Water is supplied to the house from a community water system. There is a new well on the property which can produce 35 gpm. The sizable dam for the lake has a draw down tube and rock riprap to minimize erosion. In addition to the large lake, a small lake of 3 to 4 acres and another stock pond are on the ranch. This is one ranch that is abundantly supplied with water.
The owners are offering a significant portion of the minerals with an acceptable purchase contract. Priced at $1,998,787.00. This is a ranch that has been enjoyed by the same family for over 50 years. Now it’s time to let another family have the great pleasure of owning it.
