DESCRIPTION: Same family since the 1850’s! The property was originally purchased by one of the owner’s ancestors who were one of the original Alsatian settlers that traveled from D’Hanis to California for the gold rush then came back and purchased the subject property. According to the owner there are historic Comanche Indian campgrounds along the creek and a hilltop Indian lookout with a prominent site believed to be an Indian burial ground. Excellent deer habitat with very nutritious brush such as guajillo and guayacan and a fantastic dove/white wing corridor. Plenty of game with hogs and trophy Whitetail. The ranch has never been leased for hunting and very little hunting by the family. A very good creek drainage runs through this property and makes for excellent lake habitat. There is one small water tank located on the property which owner says holds water year round. It’s stocked with bass and catfish and offers excellent dove hunting. There is excellent potential to build a large lake with an elevated building site overlooking the lake. There are scattered Live Oaks, large Mesquite trees, and some very large Elms along the creek bottom. Portions of the creek bottoms have forest like attributes with stretches of large thick hardwoods that make for excellent turkey roosts. Over 25 acres have been cleared and reclaimed and planted with native Texas grasses. There is a small old cabin that would need some updating. The fences are in fair condition and hold cattle which help maintain the ag-exemption. Approximately half of the ranch is low-fenced and half the ranch is high-fenced. The owner believes he owns 25% of the minerals that will convey with the ranch. There are no oil or gas leases on this ranch or any oil wells nearby. There is currently no water well and electricity is available from the north side from the adjoining neighbor. Water is possibly available from West Medina Water Supply approximately ¼ mile away. This ranch has the perfect combination of hilltop building sites with views up to 1,000 feet elevation and some very good fertile bottoms with huge trees and deep soil. Last year's taxes were approximately $320. There are no easements through this ranch and mostly large neighbors border this ranch.
GAME: Whitetail deer, turkey, quail, dove, and hogs.
