Summary: Find your oasis here in beautiful Bosque County, on almost 65 acres with a hilltop home, big views, wildlife, water, and the peace and solitude of country living.
Terrain: Approximately 60’ of elevation change occurs across the Crystal Springs Ranch House Lake Tract as the land gently slopes to the north/northwest toward the lake. The setting is scenic with big hills in the distance and great views of the property and surrounding countryside. The land is predominately native pasture thick with a variety of grasses and pockets of tree and brush cover.
Water: The property features a wonderful 2+/- acre bass lake for your recreational enjoyment while also serving as a reliable water source for livestock and wildlife. Underground water is readily available with the property located above the prolific Trinity Aquifer and there is one water well currently in place that serves the home with a new water softener unit in place. Water is also piped to the barn and to two water troughs in the pastures.
Structural Improvements: An ~1,800 SF 2 bed/2 bath brick home is perched on a hill overlooking the property with an attached 336 SF garage and concrete storm shelter that is accessed from inside the home. The interior of the home was recently repainted and is a clean blank slate awaiting the finish-out and touches of a new owner. New Anderson windows were also recently installed along with new HVAC unit and ducting, and hot water heater. A small, but quaint 600 SF barn is also on the property and located just north of the home.
Roads & Fencing: The east side of the property fronts along Bosque County Road No. 2720 for approximately 1/2 mile and is high game fenced with a large gated entrance near the home. The remaining fences are all barbed and net wire low fences. The structural improvements are enclosed within ~1.25 acres that have been cross fenced. Most of the fences are like new and in great condition. Older perimeter fences are in good shape and appear to turn livestock.
Livestock & Grazing: The owner utilizes the property as part of a rotational grazing program that includes almost 6,000 acres, ensuring that the pastures are not overgrazed.
