The Antelope Creek Ranch is a great 59.11 acre property that is located in Mills County just across the Lampasas / Mills County line. Access is off highway 183 and just a short drive on county road 243.
This ranch offers just about anything you would want on acreage of this size. From beautiful large live oaks trees to a peaceful creek, this ranch is one the entire family will enjoy!
The Ranch Home:
The energy efficient 2,000 sq ft ranch home sits on an elevated area overlooking the creek. It features relaxing front and back covered porches that provide a great outdoor environment setting. The home is on a concrete slab and was built in 2011. The 2 bedroom 2 bath home is in excellent condition and ready to move into. The living room has a vaulted ceiling and a cozy Dutch West free standing wood burning stove.
The home features a roomy kitchen that is open to the living and dining room. This provides plenty of room for large family gatherings. The kitchen has built-in appliances and includes custom built ash cabinets, a huge kitchen island, roll-out shelving, and a rotating corner shelf.
Extra-long windows let in plenty of light and offer great views of the ranch from the home.
The spacious master bedroom features a nice sitting area and large windows. The master bathroom has a walk-in shower and his/hers separate sink area.
All of the floors of the ranch home consist of porcelain tile except the bedrooms, which are carpeted.
The roof of the home is heavy gauge metal. Extra wide seamless gutters are in place and catch rain water which is stored in large tanks on the property that provide water for the trees, lawn, and garden.
The exterior of the home is constructed of concrete hardiboard.
A large all concrete and cinder block room in the home serves as a safe shelter/pantry that offers a safe place for the family in case of bad weather.
The Cozy Cabin:
Another great feature of this property is the 750 sq ft cabin located next to the home. This quaint get-a-way cabin offers more sleeping quarters for family and guest. The cabin has a 14x25 concrete covered slab attached to it that provides storage or more outdoor sitting space. As additional heat, (or as the main heat source), the cabin also features a freestanding wood burning stove.
The cabin contains a full kitchen, full bath, laundry room with washer and dryer, and includes an antique wagon-wheel hanging light fixture, and all hardwood flooring.
Contained in these 59.11 acres are huge live oaks, pecan, elm, and other hardwoods. (Including two beautiful cypress trees by the creek!). The owners have cleared most of the ranch of cedars, except for a small portion along the southeast border. This area provides good wildlife habitat. The ranch offers good hunting for whitetail deer, turkey, dove, and other native animals.
The soils on the ranch are good and contain excellent native grasses. There are great areas to plant food plots and improve the grasses.
Antelope Creek transverses the ranch across most of the entire front of the property. A dam was constructed several years ago that allows for a nice body of water on most of the creek. According to the current and past owners, this is a nice creek that holds water year around.
The landscape around the home consists of sandstone boulders and sandstone walkways. The property is well manicured and taken care of. The owners have constructed a large fenced in garden and have planted several nice fruit trees.
The ranch is completely fenced with areas of cross fencing.
Rainwater Collection Tanks and Wells:
As prudent landowners and conservationist the owners have constructed a rainwater collection system. They use this water to water the lawn and garden.
The system contains the following;
Two 1,500 gallon tanks that collect rain water from the main house gutters.
Two 1,500 gallon tanks that collect rain water from the barn gutters.
One 2,500 gallon tank that collect rain water from the tool shed gutter.
One 5,000 gallon tank that collects water from an older well.
The water for the home is provided by Corix Water Supply.
This large 30x60 all metal barn provides a great place to store the equipment. The building sets on a concrete slab and has electric and water. It features a drive through concrete ramp at one end, and two storage rooms.
15x22 Tool Shed / Workshop:
This is one of those building that is hard to do without. It is constructed of all metal on a concrete slab. Two sets of double doors allows for easy access. The building has electric.
Most of the buyers that contact me for property are looking for large hardwoods, a good creek, good soils, and good hunting. The Antelope Ranch has all of these and more. This ranch offers a great family retreat, retirement home, or a place to go for the weekend to enjoy the great outdoors. This property will also make a great horse ranch. The soils will provide excellent grazing for horses and other animals. The current owners have done an excellent job in constructing the home and other buildings. They have kept the property is excellent and manicured condition. This is truly a property that has everything and is ready for the new owners to move into.
In consideration of all the property itself offers and the quality and amount of improvements, this ranch is well worth the asking price!
