Improvements The home is a 2 bd, 1 bath, with kitchen, dining room, 2 living areas, enclosed back porch, large utility room and an attached 2 car garage. The original wood floors remain in much of the home. The square footage of the home I estimate to be around 1600+/- sf. The utility room has been used as a 3rd bedroom. It's estimated the home was last lived in 19 years ago. The functionality of the home, septic, propane tank, water meter and well is unknown. The home may be a tear down to some or a nice hunters camp to others. Near the home are 3 barns, a workshop and other out buildings. All of which are in poor condition. The hunters cabin has one room that currently sleeps two and has A/C, heat and running water. The cabin has a covered front porch and covered storage behind the cabin. The hunters camp also has a functioning well, "redneck" outhouse and a covered RV parking area with a power plug for RV. Fenced for livestock and there's a new 7-wire fence at the Harmon Road boundary.
Wildlife This property holds an abundance of wildlife, including whitetail deer, turkey, ducks and dove. Quail can be seen infrequently around the ranch. Some stock ponds currently hold bass and catfish. Hogs and predator species can provide year around hunting opportunities. Surface Water Four stock ponds on the property provide water for livestock and wildlife and most are stocked with bass and catfish. 1.1 miles of Perryman Creek runs from west to east and located in the northern half of the property.
Topography The topography is primarily level to gently sloping with 60'+/- of elevation change across the ranch. Long distance views of the surrounding hill country can be observed from various locations on the ranch. The varied terrain is easily accessed by a minimal pasture road system.
Plants/Soil The property consists of open pastures with scattered oaks and pecan trees which provides ample habitat for the wildlife. Most of the ranch has native grass pastures with some areas recently cultivated for oats. The soil is primarily black land with some caliche. Mesquite and cedar are present on the ranch and there's an ongoing effort to grub out the mesquite.
Utilities/Wells Hamilton Electric supplies the power to the ranch. Power meters located at hunters camp and old homestead. The ranch house has a water meter supplied by Multi-County Water Supply.
