The Marquardt Homestead sits on the outskirts of Lexington, Texas, a quaint country town in the heart of Lee County. Located just 1 hour from the state capital, this property would make for a great commuter ranch. Surrounded by 70 acres of improved grasses, the ranch style home sits under a canopy of large pecan trees. A beautifully manicured yard makes a great hang out spot for the whole family all year.
Agriculture: Currently about 43 Acres behind the house is dedicated to hay cutting. This improved pasture could continue to be a wonderful hay field or could be converted into other crops or wildlife food plots. The Benchley Clay loam soils can support many different types of cultivation. The remainder of the property is cross fenced and can be used for grazing and recreation. This property is Ag exempt.
Wildlife: The wildlife species that can be found on the ranch include whitetail deer, dove, and other vermin.
Improvements: The Ranch home is a 3 bed/2 bath that was built in 1967, the house has 2,466 sq. ft. under roof, 1,926 sq. ft. under central A/C & heat. There is a 780 sq. ft. detached two car garage, with plenty of room for a workshop. There are several other old barns around the homestead which could be used for equipment or hay storage. Behind the house, there is a 1/4 acre vegetable garden, which has been used for fall and summer gardens for many years. It has a simple drip irrigation system installed on all of the rows. The property is accessed by a short easement off CR 410. There is also an access easement through the property, please see the map. The perimeter of the property is partially fenced.
Water: This past year the owner drilled a water well behind the house to service the home, this well could also be used to feed water troughs in the pastures.
