Spring Branch Ranch

$4,982,000 Centerville, TX 1,365± Deeded Acres

Executive Summary

Spring Branch Ranch is comprised of 1,365± acres situated in Leon County. The ranch is set up for a combination of hunting and recreational use, as well as a modest cow/calf operation. With the property being approximately 85 percent wooded with an excellent mix of mature pine and hardwood timber, there is potential for investment with sound management practices. Shortleaf and loblolly pine, post oak, and red oak are all predominant in varied densities across the ranch. In many areas, a selective pine timber harvest would benefit both the wildlife and the pocketbook. Coastal Bermuda hayfields, along with Bahia and common Bermuda pastures dot the landscape of Spring Branch Ranch. The meadows are spaced and surrounded to maximize serenity and edge habitat over much of the ranch. Most of these meadows serve as hunting senderos, which accommodates different blind/feeder alignments. Endless trails, roads, and fence ROW’s offer seemingly endless opportunities to see what’s around the next bend in the trail.

Elevations range from a low of 270 feet on the southern end to over 400 feet on the north end. Spring Branch is seemingly spring fed and perennial, flowing across a clean sandy bottom in true East Texas fashion. There are various other creeks and gully’s scattered across the property, and small dotted ponds offering wildlife plenty of refuge. Additionally, there is a 2.5-acre surface reservoir and a 1.25-acre pond. While the shape is not desirable by most for a single pasture high fence, it would be an excellent high fence candidate for a multiple pasture layout, where different species or management goals are located.

Minerals are negotiable with 14 percent of the oil and gas estate owned by seller.

Groundwater is abundant, with five water wells, which includes three commercial-grade wells and two residential wells. The majority of the neighbors are large properties which allow for reduced hunting pressure. Excellent cover, easily accessible water, and abundant food culminate for a healthy population of game animals. The improvements to the ranch are minimal and include a large hay barn and two equipment sheds. Access to the ranch is found in three separate locations with blacktop frontage along Lcr 114. Spring Branch Ranch is a rare find in Leon County.

Property is co-listed with Circle T Realty.
