This ranch is roughly 85% heavy woods. About one-fifth of the tract, near Jeddo Road, is fairly flat with heavy, dark, mostly clay soils. Brush here consists of mesquite, cedar elm, hackberry, bois-d-arc with some live oak. The eastern four-fifths of the land has a series of substantial hills along the south boundary, and is predominately sandy soils with post oak, American elm, hickory, Texas ash, water oak, blackjack oak and some live oak. There is mostly yaupon understory with scattering of American beauty berry and huckleberry. Brush is thick and heavy. Some of the trees are hundreds of years old.
There are no improvements except electricity on the property near Jeddo Road (which is paved) and there is a public water source along the road as well. All a new buyer needs to do is contact the water company and tie into their line.
There is one pond, that according to the owner, kept water even during the 2011 drought. The opportunity for several more ponds will be a viable option to any new owner of this ranch due to the hills on the southern boundary or even a large lake due to the dry creek bed. This dry creek traverses through roughly two-thirds of the property.
The map drawn with this ad shows the close boundary for 204 acres and it is being severed out of a larger tract owned by the family. Anyone interested in this property will have the option to invest in up to 300 total acres.
Now the best part………… Any buyer will receive 25% of minerals but with 100% control of the surface activities regarding any future oil and gas activity. This land also sits squarely on top of the Carrizo Wilcox Aquifer and the sellers will convey 100% of the water rights. Water now, and in the future is worth more than oil. That alone makes this a must see property.
