Home, Guest House and Improvements: Impressive two-story, four bed/3.5bath/5,200 sqft custom home with a massive 'Great Room', and gourmet kitchen overlooking the ranch. Close by sits the original 1912 'quintessential' Texas ranch house of over 2,800 sqft which offers the most authentic Texas guesthouse experience. You feel transported back in time as you explore its unique wooden structure including five bedrooms, two full baths, receiving parlor, dining and beamed family room with wood burning stove, and kitchen - wrapped by a porch and window-lined annex.
The main house has two living areas, all bedrooms have walk-in closets. Master bedroom has sitting area with coffee bar, exercise room, and a large walk-in closet with washer and dryer and a safe room built to withstand an F5 tornado. Master bath features a jetted tub, two sinks, and a TV hidden behind the mirror. Main house has a study and game/music room. Kitchen has two walk-in pantries.

A large 1,248 sqft storage barn is perfect for ranch equipment and toys plus over 2,400 sqft of covered parking/storage. Several additional buildings sit among the great oaks including chicken coops, loafing sheds, hand built stone boundary walls, along with over 16,500 feet of perimeter fencing and several cross fences. Solar panels take full advantage of the orientation and minimize utility expenses. Two miniature horses, a donkey and many chickens are hoping to remain home on the ranch. Plus, the owners have equipment, vehicles and furniture potentially available. The property is currently under a 1-d-1 ag valuation keeping the property taxes low. A grass lease with the neighbor maintains the ag valuation without the headaches of having to take care of the cows or fencing. Sitting proudly surrounded by its acreage, this legacy ranch offers privacy, heritage and refined living. The gated entrance to the ranch adds another layer of convenience and security.
Location: Located ~15 miles west of Hamilton, TX and ~83 miles west of Waco, TX. ~116 miles to downtown Fort Worth and 122 miles to downtown Austin.
Water: School Land Creek runs through the property and typically runs in the wetter parts of the year. There are several natural springs that trickle water into the creek year-round, even in the driest of years. These springs create small pools in the creek that provide year-round water to livestock and wildlife. The hard limestone bottom of the creek includes numerous interesting dinosaur tracks. The property sits above the Trinity Aquifer. A water well on the property supplies water for both houses, stock animals, wildlife and irrigation.
Wildlife: The ranch habitat attracts most of the native Texas wildlife, whitetail deer, wild turkeys, coyotes, bobcats, foxes, raccoons, mourning and white wing doves and many other native small animals and birds are present on the ranch.
Grasses and Trees: Native grasses, improved Bluestem grass in the hay pasture and native trees are flourishing on the ranch. There is a fantastic bottom along the creek that includes huge Pecan, Oak and Elm trees. There are some very large Oak trees near the guest house that provide shade for the yard. Juniper or Cedar trees and Mesquite trees are also present but well controlled.
