Location: Located in Erath County approximately 5 miles northeast of Hico, Texas, the ranch is an easy 1 hour 30 minutes southwest of Fort Worth, 2 hours southwest of Dallas, 1 hour 20 minutes northwest of Waco, and 2 hours 30 minutes north of Austin.

The physical property address is 6124 CR 236 Hico, TX 76457
Terrain and Topography: A plateau extends into the north/northwest portion of the property. From here the landscape gently slopes downward to the south/southeast offering a total of ~35' of elevation change. Near the southern end of the property a seasonal creek meanders across the ranch blanketed by large native pecan trees and various brush species. The soils found here are predominantly sandy loam and conducive for establishing improved grass pastures and/or cultivating and planting wildlife food plots. There's a nice scattering of hardwood tree cover consisting of live oak, post oak, elm pecan, hackberry, plus three producing pear trees, a wild plumb thicket, wild blackberries, and wild mustang grapes.
Water: The ranch has its own private water well that serves the ranch home and water troughs. A new pump, pressure tank, and tubing were installed five years ago. The pressure tank is housed in a sturdy rock well house. The property has one stock tank.
Wildlife: This portion of southern Erath County and the property itself offers excellent wildlife habitat; whitetail deer and Rio Grande turkey feel right at home. Hogs, bobcat, fox, coyote and songbirds of all kinds are often seen or heard as well. A custom two-person hunting blind and corn feeder are in place and ready for use. For the avid bow hunter, there's a great pecan bottom near the south end of the ranch that would be ideal for your tree stand.
Roads and Fences: The Rohan Ranch fronts along Erath County Road No. 236 for over 2,000'. An all-weather gravel ranch road provides entry from CR 236, leading to the ranch home and shop. The property has a gated entrance, good perimeter fencing in place, and cross fencing. A small portion of the southeast corner is not fenced, but livestock do not have access to this area.

The home has a welcoming living room with a cozy wood burning stove, kitchen with custom cabinets and large pantry, dining area with a nice view of the backyard where you can often see whitetail deer and turkey, a large master bed and bathroom with a spacious his and her walk-in closet, and a small office area. You will also find covered parking nearby in a two-car carport.
Barn and Sheds: The ~1,200 sf Mueller metal building is located next to the house, has roll up doors in the front, and a separate entry door on the side. There is a rustic rock chicken house, that with a little work, could easily house your own flock of chickens. The ranch also has an old stucco garage, that is perfect for storage.
