Overview: Impressive turn-key property with beautiful home overlooking 7+/- acre deep bass lake with covered dock. Exceptional elevation change/ views, scenic terrain, hardwood tree cover with an abundance of live oaks, grazing opportunities and excellent hunting & fishing. This diverse recreational property is only 2 hours from DFW and one of the best you will find anywhere! 

Location: Rocker H is located on County Road 136 (Scranton Road) approximately 10 miles west of Cisco. It is located 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours 15 minutes from the Dallas/ Fort Worth area and approximately 45 minutes to Abilene. Address: 1501 County Road 136, Cisco, TX 76437. 

Directions: From Cisco, go west on interstate 20 for approximately 7 miles until taking Scranton Road exit (County Road 136). Go South on Scranton Road for 2.3 miles until you see a silver overhead entrance with stone columns on the left side of the road.  

Terrain: Excellent diversity and topography with tremendous views. There are sandy loam soils with scenic rocky areas. Dinner Branch runs through the property and is the primary source of water for the lake. This drainage runs north through the property with hills and ridgelines on either side creating a private valley. Elevation change is an impressive 125 feet.    

Vegetation: Tree cover consists of live oak, post oak, elm, and a variety of other trees common to the area. Grasses are primarily native and include little bluestem, sideoats grama, curly mesquite, Texas winter grass as well as other native grasses. Improved Coastal Bermuda and T-587 Bluestem grasses are planted in the 20+ acre pasture adjacent to the barn. 

Home: Approximately 3100 square foot architecturally designed home built in 2007. The 2 bed/ 3 1/2 bath house has a detached 2/2 guest house (via covered walkway). There are plenty of windows providing natural light throughout the home. Standing seam roof and stone accents make the home feel natural to the setting. 


  • Living room/ Dining room: The living room, dining room and kitchen are open concept with multiple areas to relax. Ceiling heights are 9' throughout.  A stone fireplace, gun cabinet, handmade oak floor planks, and a 12' cathedral ceiling make for a comfortable and inviting environment. 
  • Kitchen: Full kitchen has a neat old gas stove/ oven that was restored from the 1930s. It is in place and fully functional. Granite countertops and island can be found in the kitchen with two dishwashers, custom cabinets, ice machine and all other appliances. 
  • Hallway: A 1/2 bath powder room is half way down the hall between the kitchen and bedrooms. Hallway is lined with large windows and views. 
  • Wash room: A sink with cabinets, pantry, washer and dryer leads out the back door to the two-car covered parking.  
  • Gear room: Just off the washroom is a large walk-in closet with a gun safe, fishing rod rack, wine cooler, and more storage. 
  • Master bedroom: Good-sized master bedroom with his and her full bathrooms. There is an incredible view to the north from the master. 
  • Guest Bedroom: A queen bed and single bed are in this room and it has its own bathroom with tub/shower/ two sinks. 
  • Guest House: Detached guest home is accessed by a short, covered walkway from the main house. There are two bedrooms and two full bathrooms (2/2) with a small entry way and good closet space. 
  • Back Porch: One of the best places to relax is the covered back porch with 2 ceiling fans, rock columns, and a relaxing swing. Views are east looking over a serene setting of live oaks with the bass lake and dock below. 

Furnishings & Other Items: Furniture, towels, sheets, silverware, plates and everything a new owner needs to enjoy the property from day one are included. Included items also include gun safe, some rugs, light fixtures, all appliances, and more. A select few personal items will be excluded.  

Landscaping:  Property is well landscaped with a rock wall surrounding the yard. Stone walkways and steps from the porch to the yard lead down to the stone firepit and patio. Grasses in the yard are lush and good to walk on barefoot. Variety of ornamentals and shrubs are planted and trees include Afghan pines, live oaks, and cedar elms. There is also a massive post oak outside the master bedroom window with big views over the northern 150 acres of the property.  

Irrigation System: A pumphouse/ lift station below the house is used to pump water from the lake to the yard. This irrigation system has numerous watering zones and drip irrigation to keep everything looking good. Watering the yard with lake water is much cheaper than rural water. 

Surface Water: The 7+/- acre deep bass lake is the premier water feature, but there are also 5 stock tanks. Three (3) of these tanks were cleaned out recently to create more depth. These tanks have good drainage basins and hold well.  

7+/- Acre Private Lake: The lake is well-built with good water quality and clarity. Depth is believed to be 20+ feet at the dam, spillway is concrete, and there are big rock features and standing timber for fisheries and aesthetics. Lakes of this caliber are difficult to find in this part of the state. Water level fluctuates a little during dry times, but the lake always looks good and provides excellent fishing, swimming, and duck hunting opportunities.   

Boat Dock: There is a 15' X 17' covered dock with a 70' walkway leading out to it. Decking is all Trex so it doesn't rot like wood. Water depth off the end of the dock is believed to be about 18-20' deep with no obstructions. Fish feeder is mounted on the side of the dock and attracts tons of bluegills as well as crappie, bass and catfish. There is a water pump anchored to the dock with a garden house and running water. A mounted steel bench for sitting and a ladder for getting out of the lake after a swim are both in place.  

Barn: Built in 2013, this metal barn has a rollup door and a man door to access the enclosed 25' X 25' interior. There is also a 25' wide X 20' deep covered parking area in front of the rollup door. The entire barn is on a concrete slab and is located towards the main entrance away from the house. There is water and electricity to the barn.  

Hunting Blinds & Feeders: There are 3 Atascosa enclosed & insulated deer blinds, Two (2) 1000# Outback corn feeders, one (1) J&L corn feeder and one (1) 2000# Outback protein feeder. Three of the four feeders are penned with hog panels & steel t-posts. All blinds and feeders are in good locations and ready to hunt. An All Seasons fish feeder is mounted to the dock and actively feeds the fish. Feeders and blinds are all included in the sale.  

Wildlife: Whitetail deer, turkey, ducks, feral hogs, dove, a few quail, and varmints provide exceptional hunting opportunities. There has been very little hunting on this property with no deer being harvested in last 20+/- years. Quality bucks have been seen and passed. Some ducks and feral hogs have been harvested, but pressure has been light. 

Fisheries: Fishing is very good for largemouth bass, bluegills, crappie, and catfish. Lake has good structure and depth throughout. Bass in the 10-pound range have been caught as well as big crappie and catfish. This is a well-rounded fishing lake that won't disappoint. 

Fencing & Pastures: Fencing is in fair to excellent condition. There are three pastures and 2 of the 3 are in excellent condition with steel posts, goat wire and barbed wire on all sides. The 3rd pasture is the north 150+/- acres and the south fence is excellent with the other three sides being in fair condition.   

Internal Roads & Access: There is a good system of roads providing access throughout the interior of the property. From the main entrance is an all-weather road providing access to the barn, house, and down to the lake dock. There are two entrances on Scranton Road. 

Surface Leases & Easements: No surface lease and no pipeline or major electric transmission line easements impact the ranch. This is a clean property.  

Electricity: Oncor provides electricity to the house and barn. Power is also available to the northern portion of the property where there was once an old homestead. 

Rural & Ground Water: Westbound Water Supply Corporation (Cisco) provides rural water to the house and barn. There are a few water wells in the area, but no active water wells on the property.

Minerals: No minerals included. There is no oil & gas production on the property or in the immediate area.
