Marion County mixed use recreational, ranch land comprised of 1100 acres +/- near historic Jefferson, TX. Fenced and cross fenced into 12 pastures with a strong grass base of bahia, common bermuda, and coastal bermuda, arrow leaf clover, white clover, and vetch provides a carrying capacity 250-300 pair (current owner runs Akaushi/Red Angus cross). Two hay pastures yield lush cuttings of large round bales.
Water abounds! The ranch features 2.6 miles of Big Cypress River, 75 ac lake, 15 ac lake, 5 ac lake, and numerous pools spread around the pastures. Hunting for waterfowl and whitetail deer has been managed and is excellent. The recreational utility is boundless and there are areas of heavy old growth oaks, cypress, and pine timber. Freshwater fishing in the river and lakes makes for Spring and Summer activity while a large rookery on one of the cypress lined lakes makes for outstanding bird watching.
Improvements include an 1800 Sq. Ft. house built in 1965 featuring 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, nice kitchen, and two living areas. Several barns/workshops, hay barns, and a set of working pens.
Texas history runs deep on the ranch with Caddo Indian mounds, reintroduction of the paddle fish in Big Cypress River, and the famed Trammell's Trace which acted as the highway into Texas for Crockett & Bowie in the early days of frontier Texas.
Historic Jefferson is renowned for it's Bed & Breakfast establishments and the ranch sits snuggly between Lake Of The Pines and Caddo Lake for additional recreational experiences.
Great opportunity to own a productive cattle ranch, spectacular hunting property, all with deep rooted Texas history just 2.5 hrs from Dallas TX and 1 hr from Shreveport LA
