Land: 45.85 acres of beautiful Divide Country loaded with healthy Oaks and native grasses on rolling terrain. The land has had extensive Cedar removal in recent years and the owner has cut and maintained a great road system on the ranch. Areas of fertile bottom land and deep soil are found on the north end of the ranch. There is a lined pond near the main home that is supplemented by the Edwards well, providing ample water to wildlife. This ranch, along with neighboring properties, has not been hunted in many years.
Improvements: The Limestone main home features 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths on the main floor, with a 250 Sq. Ft. of loft space for additional sleeping arrangements. Stainless Steel appliances and granite counter tops in kitchen make this home comfortable enough for full-time living. The large master suite, added in 2010, has double vanities with a walk in shower and closet. Covered parking for 2 trucks under the attached carport, with additional vehicle parking in barn. Outside, the covered deck and balcony make for great places to drink coffee and watch sunsets and animals come to drink from the pond. There is plenty of outdoor living space included with the BBQ area, fire pit, and swimming pool. The in-ground pool is heated with a working waterfall. Central air, heat pump, and licensed septic are in place.
A 900 Sq. Ft. metal barn-dominium was finished out in 2010 and has 3 more bedrooms, 1 large bathroom, and a full kitchen. The workshop portion of the barn is 680 Sq.

The Edwards Aquifer well has great flow and supplies water to the main house, barn-dominium, and supplements the pond. 1,500 gallons of water storage located inside the pump house allows owner to keep enough water on hand even with large groups visiting the ranch.
Wildlife: Over 1,200 Trophy Whitetail, Axis, Sika, Fallow, Blackbuck, Aoudad, and Turkey roam the famed 10,000+ acre community. The best hunting around offered on 77 acres is attributed to the Y.O. Ranchlands game management process. These animals are never over-pressured, always well fed, and careful management makes the hunting experience 1 of a kind. Additional information on wildlife can be found at YORanchlands.org. The Red Dog Ranch, along with many of the neighbors, has not been hunted or pressured in many years. Current owners have 3 feeders and 2 blinds in place, but enjoy the scenery of the ranch and observing the animals.
