Property Description

The 1950 brick ranch house (1,800 sqft) was re-modeled in 2007 retaining original items such as hardwood floors, glass door knobs, and fireplace while adding modern features such as a tankless water heater, Silestone counter-tops, new plumbing, and wiring. The ranch house has three bedrooms with one perfect for an office, a central living/dining area, office, large laundry room, and 1.5 bathrooms. The brick guest house (1,800 sqft), built in 2005, is handicap accessible with 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a galley kitchen, colored concrete floors and wide views of the property. A 900 square foot paver patio with shade from Live Oaks and Post Oaks fronts the main house. The guest house has a large front porch with a commanding view of the ranch and also has outdoor stereo sound, if desired. Sitting on either porch in the evening is one of the best parts of this property. If you visit, make sure you're there for a sunset!

The land is fenced and cross-fenced; two of the three stock tanks are stocked with copper nose blue gill and largemouth bass. A working windmill pumps water to pastures and an irrigation well provides service to over 25 acres. Two hay-pastures are planted in KN-47 Bermuda with winter rye/Devine' Little Burr Medic. Additional native grass pastures provide rotational grazing. Other pastures and fenced areas are primarily for hunting dove/teal/duck, while the rear is wooded with groomed trails and multiple locations to hunt deer or turkeys. Full mineral rights can convey to the new owner.

The shop building is divided into a woodshop and a metal shop. The woodshop has a centralized dust collection system and air conditioning to provide a great space for hobby activities and is also used as home gym. The metal shop has 20 and 40 amp service for welding equipment. It is backed by a large gravel laydown area for equipment or trailer parking and implement storage.
