East Buchanan Ranch
Price: $508,500 ($1695 price per acre)
Size: 300+/- Acres
County: Throckmorton County , Texas
Property Description: This 300+/- acre ranch is the eastern portion of the larger 793 +/-ac Buchanan Ranch for sale in Throckmorton County. It has excellent diversity including big elevation changes, a massive ridgeline on the northern half, thick brush, grazing, hunting, many small stock tanks, county road access and highway frontage.
Location: Southeastern Throckmorton County between Throckmorton and Breckenridge approximately 6 miles Northwest of Woodson on Highway 183. Highway 183 is not heavily traveled, but provides excellent access.
Road Frontage: There is 4100 feet of paved road frontage on Highway 183 and .45 miles of frontage on County Road 330. This is generally a quiet area.
Terrain: Terrain is rolling with one large scenic ridgeline. This ridgeline on the northern half of this ranch and provides impressive views of southern Throckmorton County. There is 80 feet of elevation change with scenic vistas from ridges and hilltops. Excellent cover and good grass varieties make this a beautiful west Texas property.
Habitat: The density of the brush is just right with some areas being thick and other areas being more open. Woody plant communities consist of mesquite, hackberry, live oaks, bumelia, catclaw, and lotebush. Side oats grama, blue grama, curly mesquite, little bluestem, and other grasses can be found throughout.
Habitat Management: There are 5 cleared senderos in the mesquite country in the center of the ranch. These areas are excellent for running bird dogs or viewing wildlife from long distances. Three of the senderos form a “turkey foot” pattern easily visible on the aerial map.
Wildlife & Fisheries: Whitetail deer, feral hogs, coyotes, bobcats, quail and Rio Grande turkey can all be found on the ranch. Several stock tanks should have fish in them as well. Duck hunting on the stock tanks can be very good with “tank jumping” being popular in the area. Dove hunting around the stock tanks and the fields can be phenomenal and is consistently good. Quail populations can also be very good and the 2016-2017 season should provide some excellent quail hunting opportunities.
Cattle: Native pastureland will support 1 animal unit per 25+/- acres. Carrying capacity can be increased if fields are planted in wheat and grazed.
Leases: There is no hunting lease. Grazing is leased until July 1, 2017, but this lease can be terminated with a written thirty (30) day notice.
Fencing/ Pastures: The fences are in fair to good condition and will hold cattle.
Stock Water: There are 4-5 smaller stock tanks providing cattle and wildlife with water.
Rural Water: Fort Griffin Special Utility District has a water line down Highway 183 to FM 923. Rural water is approximately 1 ½ miles from the property. Meters should be available, but a line extension would be necessary. There are plans to extend the water line down Highway 183, but there is no definite timetable for when this will be completed. Owner put in an application for a water meter when the line is extended. Average cost to put a water meter in is $1700+/-.
Electricity: Electricity is located along the highway, county roads, and several locations on the ranch itself. Numerous potential homesites exist.
Minerals: Minerals are negotiable with an acceptable offer. There are a few wells actively producing, but most locations are on the periphery of the property and impact is minimal. O&G production is common in the general area.
Easements: There is a gas pipeline crossing the property. No roadway easements are known to cross the ranch.
Taxes: Property is agriculturally exempt. 2016 Taxes are estimated at approximately $500.
