Location:Conveniently situated less than one hour east of Dallas, this beautiful East Texas ranch is comprised of two non-contiguous equal-sized tracts of land totaling 820 acres. Located just east of Terrell on the north side of Highway 80, both tracts of land have stock ponds and creeks that provide water for cattle grazing and attracting wildlife for hunting. The northern tract features a 2 AC lake and a 25 AC lake ideal for fishing and hunting.
Land:The ranch features beautiful iconic east Texas rolling terrain. There is an abundance of surface water for wildlife including an unbelievable 25 +/- AC lake and Rocky Cedar Creek which traverses through the property creating some excellent habitat throughout the various pastures. The soils are very fertile and several of the pastures have been put into improved grasses for grazing and hay production. A multitude of heavily wooded areas exists throughout the ranch- excellent for hunting and recreation purposes. Abundant native vegetation and hardwood trees grow along the creeks and in the heavily covered area.
Elevation/Topography:Kaufman County is considered to be in the Blackland Prairie region of northeast Texas. Both tracts have nice topographical changes. The northern tract, or headquarters tract, has elevation ranging from 569 Ft above sea level on the western border, to around 520 Ft above sea level around the largest lake. The southern tract elevation ranges from 542 Ft above sea level on the north eastern corner to approximately 532 Ft above sea level on the southern end fronting on HWY 80.
Water:There are a total of 15 stock ponds, a 2-acre lake, and a 25-acre lake managed by the Corp of Engineers. The property features over 2400 Ft. of frontage on both sides of Rocky Cedar Creek as it enters the 25 +/- AC lake. A community water supply services the southern tract and runs along the east boundary line of the property. The same community water line services the improvements on the northern tracts as well.
