Approximately 1,817 acres located just southwest of Malakoff Texas, south of Cedar Creek Reservoir, and HWY 31, west of Athens and east of Corsicana. Approximately 50% pasture and 50% hardwood and brushland, this ranch offers an extensive variety. For the serious cattleman, the improved pastures, hayfields, cross fencing, and fertile soils all contribute to exceptional forage production and AU capacity. For the avid hunter, the upland hills and hardwoods produce exceptional year-round game habitat, while the bottomland groves, senderos, wet weather pockets, McAllister Slough, Cedar Creek, and Walnut Creek all provide exceptional seasonal habitat. For the outdoor enthusiast, the ranch offers tremendous views from the rolling hills, and endless terrain to explore to see the wildlife and beauty native to East Texas. Enhanced with an unusually mature development of senderos, the ranch can be managed to several co-existing purposes, when combined with the uplands on both the northern and southern reaches of the ranch. With varying elevations of approximately 100 feet, the views are amplified and extended to the west looking over the Cedar Creek and Trinity basins. The ranch also offers over ten ponds of various sizes, electricity on site, and one water well. Currently the northern two-thirds of the ranch are fenced, cross fenced, and the pastures are well managed by the grazing tenant. The southern third is entirely wooded, entirely untamed, and features water and topographic features that would benefit from enhancement by the next owner. Walnut Creek particularly has many opportunities to develop wildlife, waterfowl, and scenic corridors. Held in institutional ownership, this offering is likely the gem of the seller’s holdings. With small, but “end of the road” frontage on Lover’s Lane, the community of Malakoff is just minutes away, which situates this ranch as feeling remote, yet very accessible.
