Landscaping – Extensive landscaping surrounds the main compound area of both homes. The beautiful shrubs, trees, and lush lawn are specially irrigated by an expansive sprinkler system. It feels like a park from the gated entrance up the paved drive to the area surrounding both homes.
Equine – A custom 10 stall Barnmaster horse barn with tack room and a partial conversion(2 stalls) to living quarters for a one bedroom, half bath apt. The barn has a concrete ally, sliding stall doors, and feed gates for a first class horse facility. There are portable corrals/paddocks, fencing, and electric fencing for horses.
Climate Controlled Kennel – Approximately 1,000 sf of heated and cooled, enclosed area with 8 dog kennels/runs. Complete with half bath, there is plenty of room for additional uses such as exercise room, storage, etc.
Equipment Shed – Includes both enclosed and open storage area for equipment, tractors, and/or hay etc.
Fencing – White vinyl, no maintenance fencing lines the drive and main compound areas. Cattle and horse pastures are lined with horse friendly barbless wire. A significant portion is high fenced(not enclosed). Multi use cross pasture fencing provides for cattle/horse rotation and hay production etc. All fencing is in very good condition.
Water Wells – There are two significant water wells approximately 800ft in depth which supply an extensive water storage tank with a 40,000 gallon capacity. This tank supplies a healthy reserve of water in case of an emergency and is also the source of water for the landscaping irrigation system, outside watering hose bibs, and livestock troughs. The houses utilize community water from Aqua Water Supply for interior water usage.
Pasture – Some of the prettiest pastures in central Texas! Highly improved and excellently maintained coastal fields with a designated lush coastal hay field. Grasses also include bahiagrass and native bluestem for outstanding grazing.
Ponds – There are 4 improved ponds strategically located for livestock and stocked for fishing. There are also several intermittent creeks and topography that would allow for additional lake/pond development.
The ranch has a “plateau” feel through the main body of the property with gently sloping topography that provides views across large areas of the pastures. Area soils are known for gently to strongly sloping with a sandy surface layer and slow to moderately permeable lower layers on the uplands. These soils are a great mix of sandy loam and great for producing large pine trees and productive pastures.
