Improvements include a well-built, 4300 sqft 4 bedroom 4 bath home constructed of limestone and a metal roof in 2004. This home is situated on a ridgeline offering views over most of the ranch’s acreage and beyond. A recently added pool, hot tub, outdoor kitchen and firepit to the back of the house create an ideal entertaining area along with a front row seat to scenic views across the pasture. All windows in the home were replaced in February of 2023 and have a lifetime transferrable warranty. New roof installed in 2022 and a carport built in 2017. Sandstone masonry fireplace and exterior chimney were completely rebuilt in 2020.
The main horse barn is approximately 5600 sqft. with pipe top rail stalls, a large concrete floored pull-in feed storage area, a wash bay and a tack room. Just off the tack room is a Priefert panel horse walker and a round pen.
Near the horse barn and Preifert walker is a 30,000 sqft covered riding arena designed and utilized for cutting, roping and horse training complete with announcers stand, concession stand, restrooms, an automatic chute and an overhead spinkler system to maintain perfect footing. The arena is constructed from concrete and pipe and built to last. The roof on the arena, home and all barns was replaced in 2022. Directly behind the arena stripping chute are several cattle pens as well as a squeeze chute and loading ramp. With no restriction against commercial activity, this facility is ready to host your next event.
The bulk of the ranch’s 127 acres has a gentle roll with good grass cover and large groves of healthy hardwoods incuding Live Oak, Cedar Elm and Pecan. Bisecting the ranch is over 3400 feet of both sides of seasonal Russell Fork of the San Gabriel River. Wildlife is abundant and includes whitetail deer, turkey, wild hogs, varmits and dove.
Russell Fork San Gabriel River bisects the property from east to west. Though considered a wet weather creek there are pools of water in wet times and the banks of the creek are lined with attractive, healthy hardwoods. At the headquarters a strong submersible pump water well (tested at 50 gpm) and 2500 gallon storage tank provides ample water to the structural improvements and water troughs located in every pasture throughout the property. The water lines are buried 20-24″ deep throughout property to ensure protection from freezing temperatures. In addition to the well there is a stock tank in the north part of the ranch that provides water to cattle and wildlife.
