These 51 acres in northwestern Hamilton County is quintessential central Texas! A mix of oak/ juniper savannah and wooded areas with elm, live oak, and hackberry creates diverse wildlife habitat and privacy. A well-built and maintained 1250-square-foot home serves as a primary residence and could be used as a guest house, or temporary home during new construction. At just over half an hour to Stephenville and 22 minutes to Hamilton, this homestead has a definite country feel with most amenities nearby.
This property has 460 feet of road frontage on FM 2823 and slopes down from the entrance. The main road is the northeastern boundary of the property and is shared easement access with one neighbor. As you travel down the driveway and towards the house, the elevation drops and the oak/ juniper savannah gives way to a wet-weather riparian area with large oaks, elms, and other native trees and brush.
The ranch has historically been hunted, and white-tailed deer, dove, and feral hogs are abundant in the area. There is plenty of grass for a few cattle or horses, and room to have a few well-placed hunting stand setups.
The current owners oversaw the construction of the beautiful 1250-square foot ranch home that sits in the middle of the ranch. This 2 bedroom, 2 bath house features a workable kitchen, open living room looking over the pond and creek areas, and a screened-in porch for enjoying the seasons.
The landscaping around the home is beautiful, and a huge oak tree greets the owners and visitors just outside the yard. There is a historic chimney about 50 yards from the house as a reminder of the storied history of this part of Central Texas.
The home relies on water well and septic for utilities
