Roughly twenty miles south of Brownwood and about a mile from the small town of Brookesmith, pride in ownership is immediately apparent within every acre of this combination ranch in the western edge of the Texas Hill Country. The property consists of 425± acres that have been meticulously improved over the years. The value added in sweat equity is a rare find and is hard to replace or compare with other properties in the market.
The main house sits under a canopy of enormous pecan and oak trees alongside Clear Creek near the county road. The three bedroom two bath home with central heat and air is perfect for a weekend abode, a place to stay while you build a lodge or custom home, or easily a comfortable place to call home. The rock guest home is tucked away beyond the barns and house and is surrounded by drought-tolerant Afghan pines providing complete seclusion and privacy. The exterior and porches were professionally rocked with limestone sourced from the property. The interior is artfully designed with redwood walls, rock behind the wood burning stove, and accented by handmade redwood doors. In front of the guest cabin is a ramada and rock fire pit for outdoor entertaining.
Historically operated as a working cattle ranch, the property includes two rock barns with cement floors, two sets of pipe corrals, an arena, round pen, new five-strand barbed wire fences and cross fences, large equipment barn, fuel tanks, and two 10-ton overhead feed bins. Other ranch equipment may be negotiated and 50% of the mineral estate held by owner may be included in the sale with an acceptable offer.
Aside from being a working cattle and equine ranch, this property has exceptional recreational opportunities and habitat that supports a healthy population of whitetail, dove, and turkey. There are several new hunting blinds and deer feeders throughout the ranch. The hunting has been strictly managed over the years and the number of mature deer seen supports that. There are five dirt tanks that offer great largemouth bass and bluegill fishing. The largest tank, which is near five acres when full, also has crappie and catfish. This tank has never gone dry in 23 years. Several types of oak trees and native pecan trees grow throughout the property and along approximately one mile of seasonal Clear Creek that bisects the ranch. The property’s boundary is fenced with portions being high fence and the remainder in six-strand barbed wire with cedar staves. The ranch has diverse topography, from bluffs above the creek with amazing views to rich bottomland. The property is cross-fenced into six pastures, which include around 30 acres of cultivated land and approximately 60 acres of improved grass. The balance of the acreage is well maintained native grasses and trees. Municipal water supplies both homes and corrals. The ranch is easily traversed by nicely kept and well-traveled roads.
