Half of the land is dedicated to seasonal crops of oats and cattle grazing. The wooded portion has trails throughout the fern-covered live oaks, tall post oaks, cedar, elm, persimmon, and mesquite. The southern border is nearly a quarter-mile of road frontage on FM 2239.

Three ponds on the property include a small pond near the house, a larger cattle tank, and a 1-acre swimming hole. Two branches of wet-weather Grassy Creek meander through the property before merging together.



The quaint 1,372 sq. ft. home was built in 1925 and features a large front porch and original details.

A 360 sq. ft. metal pole barn provides storage or shelter for livestock.

The 4- and 5-strand barbed wire perimeter fencing is in good condition. The homesite area is fenced separately.

Utilities include county water supplied by Aqua Water Supply Corp, electricity, propane, and a septic tank. A water well at the homesite is in unknown condition.



The mixed habitat is home to a variety of wildlife including whitetail deer, turkey, Sandhill cranes, wood ducks, mallards, various songbirds, rabbits, and other small mammals. The large surrounding properties are low-fenced, allowing wildlife to traverse freely. Bass, catfish, and sunfish are found in the 1-acre pond.



Surface sale only; no mineral rights included. There are oil tanks located in the front pasture and backside of the property with active but minimal production.



Half of the acreage has an agricultural tax valuation due to crops and a cattle lease. Ask the agent about how to convert the entire property to a Wildlife Management valuation for further tax benefits. 2019 taxes were $7,811.
