Location: Ideally located ~10 miles south of Glen Rose, Texas, and just into the northern portion of Bosque County on Bosque County Road No. 2730, the Crystal Springs Ranch Hill Creek Tract is approximately 1 hour 35 minutes southwest of Dallas and 1 hour 5 minutes south of Fort Worth.
Summary: Live water, topography, multiple building sites, and big views, all on ~35 acres!
Water: The spring-fed South Fork of Hill Creek winds its way through the property providing over 2,300’ of frontage along both sides. Natural rock shelves and water falls are just a few of the unique features to be found. A concrete creek crossing is in place providing easy travel through the property, and backs up a nice stretch of water. There’s also a wet-weather creek that meanders through for over 1,000’ and converges with Hill Creek on the property. Underground water is readily available with the property located above the prolific Trinity Aquifer. New water wells are commonly drilled to depths of 500’-600’ in this area. There are believed to be two old water wells on the property at was once the location of an old country school house.
Terrain: The land on Crystal Springs Ranch Hill Creek Tract is primarily open rolling to gently sloping native pasture with a few live oaks, china berry, and some areas of sumac. ~50’ of elevation change occurs with two nice elevated points and potential building sites that overlook most all of the property, Hill Creek, and a large portion of the 5,000+ acre ranch to the north.
Roads & Fencing: The north side of the property offers ~4,100’ of road frontage along Bosque County Road No. 2730. The fencing along CR 2730 is new and in excellent condition with 4 gated entry points. A winding pasture trail leads into the property, across the creek, and up to the top of the hill. Almost 2,600’ of the south fence line was recently repaired and is in good condition. The remaining ~1,790’ of south fence line is a combination of old low and high fencing.
