Pine Hill Ranch
Pine Hill Ranch is a beautiful 117.5+/- acre combination ranch nestled in a highly desirable area of western Harrison County. The property consists of incredible rolling pastures, multiple ponds, scattered hardwood timber, and an excellent balance of ranching and recreational attributes. The ranch is perfectly suited to run cattle with fertile pastures and abundant water, while offering numerous potential homesites for the future owner. Surrounded by similar properties, and within close proximity of town, this ranch provides an opportunity for a private yet convenient home site.
Location: Pine Hill Ranch is located approximately 6.5 miles north of Hallsville, Texas, with road frontage on Hwy 450 and FM 449 for all weather access. The ranch is also conveniently located only 9 miles from Longview, 12 miles from Marshall, and only 130 miles east of Dallas, all within the highly sought-after Hallsville ISD.
Improvements: There is an old house of little value located in the central portion of the property. The homesite is completely outfitted with a septic system, county water supply, a deep water well, and electricity. South of the home site is a barn and a set of working pens. The entire ranch is fenced and cross fenced well suited for rotational grazing. Overall, this property is a clean slate for the new owner to come in and make it their own.
Trees, grass, forbs: The ranch's fertile, sandy loam soils foster Coastal Bermuda pastures which are dominate to native grasses on the north end of the property. Recently the pastures have either been in hay production or lightly grazed by a grass tenant. Tree cover consists of scattered hardwoods including a variety of oaks, elm, black gum, hickory, persimmon, and some pine. Native forbs and browse are also plentiful along the wood lines and provide ample habitat for wildlife.
Water: The ranch has abundant water which is available in nearly every pasture. It includes four stock ponds, one of which offers excellent fishing and hunting opportunities. In addition to the ponds, a seasonal drainage runs from west to east into the larger pond creating a tributary to Page Creek.Livestock can easily be conveniently turned onto water from any pasture on the property. There is also a deep water well near the home site accessing the Carrizo Wilcox Aquifer. Two of the ponds are situated where they can easily be developed into larger bodies of water providing more recreational opportunities.
Topography: Beautiful rolling to sloped terrain spans the property with approximately 45 feet of elevation change providing a scenic view, especially from the house site, while the timber maintains privacy from most any direction. The pastures are all well drained but can easily be traversed providing plenty of opportunity for hay production. Such diversity offers the landowner countless options for potential building locations for an additional home site and endless recreational opportunities.
Wildlife and fisheries: This ranch has not been hunted in recent years, however there is an abundance of deer in this part of Harrison County that frequent the property and plenty of other wildlife species including waterfowl for recreational enjoyment. Excellent fishing opportunities abound in the larger pond east of the house.
