The Whitman Farm is 104.8 +/- acres in Foard County, Texas, located south of Thalia on the paved FM 262. It comes complete with a house, horse pasture and pens, roping arena and 97.8 acres of productive farm land.
This farm is about 15 minutes to the town of Crowell (pop. 840, county seat) and 20 minutes to Vernon (pop. 10,461). Crowell has several unique restaurants, a clinic, pharmacy and grocery store. Vernon has a Walmart, hospital with Level IV ER unit, weekly farmer's market, feed store and community college. The property is surrounded by other productive farms and is just 1.5 miles from the historic 510,000 acre Waggoner Ranch.
The property is rectangular in shape and has 97.8 acres in dry land cultivation, per the FSA. It is Rotan clay loam soil and is extremely flat, with no terraces or washes. The owner has grown wheat and cotton on it; it would take to coastal or other grasses, if you wanted to make it a pasture for horses to cattle.
The home is a 2004 Solitaire in excellent condition. The owner bought it new and attached it to the land straight from the dealer. It has four bedrooms and two full bathrooms, plus there is a utility room, office and large game room in the back that can act as a 5th bedroom. It has 2,560 sq ft of space (32' x 80'). The flooring is carpet in the bedrooms and living room, and vinyl in the kitchen/dining room/hallway and bathrooms/utility room. The home has some nice extras as well, like built in shelving, an entertainment center and a bar off of the living room. The master suite is on the opposite end of the house from the other bedrooms and has a large bathroom with two walk in closets, two vanity sink areas, walk in shower and jetted soaking tub. The home also has two AC units.
The owner has upgraded the home in multiple ways. Upon installing the home on the land, he sprayed additional insulation and bricked the exterior. Then a three car carport (30' x 30') and covered front porch was built and metal roof was added to the whole structure. They poured concrete parking under the carport, porches, sidewalks and flowerbed curbing, and brought in gravel for the driveways Several trees were also planted around the house, which will provide some really nice shade when mature.
To the south of the house, the owner fenced off a 4.6 acre coastal pasture for horses. The fence has metal t-posts, pipe corners and gates, and barbless galvanized wire. A metal loafing shed with four horse pens was built that opens up to this pasture. This shed has electricity and water ran back to it. It has doors that can be closed off to block a cold wind too.
At the back of the property is a 75' x 150' pipe roping arena. City water is ran back to it as well. The owner currently has some removable panels installed to divide it into two pens, where he keeps a horse and some sheep.
