Three Forks Ranch is a rare offering in the prized community of Franklin, just a 35-minute drive from Bryan and College Station. Featuring quality improvements, fertile and improved pastureland, scenic rolling hills, hardwood timber wildlife corridors, and even a fishing pond or two, the ranch is a unique opportunity for the working rancher and avid outdoorsman alike. With long frontages on both Bishopville and Mitch McMillian Roads, grazing livestock is always easy to spot on the drive home from work. Lush pastures of Coastal and Tifton 85 bermudagrass combine with the productive sandy loam soils to provide impressive grazing and hay production. The gated entrance and winding, downhill ranch road approach the headquarters with a notion of a destination. The ranch is entirely located on the watershed of Three Mile Creek and its tributaries, two of which uniquely converge behind the large deck of the main home, with modest bedrock waterfalls running most of the year. The main home is designed to complement the ranch, from its large porches on the front and sides, to the large tree-shaded deck on the rear. The main home, bunkhouse, courtyard, equipment shop, gardens, horse trap, chicken coop, pedestrian bridge, and barbecue area are all accessed through the circle drive at the end of the ranch road. Cattle pens, hay barn, and hay traps are located near Bishopville Road, while the trap/skeet facility and pavilion are near the southern edge. All owned minerals are offered at list price.
