Fairfield Lake

Posted on: October 6th, 2021 by Hortenstine Blake

PROPERTY OVERVIEW: As the largest private water offering in the state of Texas and the premier rural land asset in the lower 48 states, Fairfield Lake is a once in a generation opportunity. And there will be only one shot at acquiring it.

At the heart of this unique property of approximately 5,025 acres is Fairfield Lake-an estimated 2,400-acre body of water surrounded by a 21-mile elevated shoreline blanketed with a mature hardwood forest. A deep-water asset of this scale is the only offering of its kind.

Within the 5,025+/- total acres is Fairfield Lake State Park, approximately1,800 acres, that’s recognized as one of Texas’ finest. Inside the park, are 8+/- miles of highway grade blacktop two lane roads, bridges, concrete boat ramps, truck and trailer parking with underground power running throughout. The park property is leased to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) and can be continued or canceled with sufficient notice to TPWD.

Fairfield Lake is in a premier location in Freestone County, Texas just east of Interstate 45, which is centrally located between Dallas ~95 miles, Houston ~160 miles, and Austin ~170. There is a ~34 square mile drainage basin flowing into this highly desirable asset that offers fishing, recreation, and a multitude of potential development concepts such as entertainment, recreational or commercial-based.

The remaining acreage, ~825 acres (Northern Acreage), located on the northern shoreline of the lake adds to the uniqueness of the property with two extremely rare private islands connected via a land bridge to each. Future development of the ~150-acre and ~30-acre islands is limited only by one’s imagination. Situated between the two islands are ~140 acres that was formally a corporate park/meeting center. Improvements include an 1970’s vintage conference center, a brick home that was converted into office space and a ~15-acre park on a manicured picturesque overlook of the lake. Both structures could use updating, but this area offers significant opportunities for its future use. The rustic, remote and mainly untouched landscape is full of wildlife and offers exceptional hunting and fishing opportunities.

Property acreages consist of the following:

TPWD Fairfield Lake State Park = 1,800+/- Acres
Fairfield Lake = 2,400+/- Acres
Northern Acreage = 825+/- Acres
Total= 5,025+/- Acres

LOCATION: Centrally located between Dallas, Houston, and Austin, east of Interstate 45, less than seven miles northeast of the picturesque town of Fairfield, population 2,900. This property is in the Post Oak Savannah Region of Texas on the forested eastern edge of Freestone County near the Trinity River. Fairfield State Park’s physical address is: 123 State Park Road 64, Fairfield, TX 75840.

DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL: With over 21 miles of undeveloped shoreline, this property is a blank canvas offering massive development potential. Ownership uses could range from a private ranch, hunting and fishing club to residential, commercial, corporate, leisure, theme park, and resort development. The Seller owns a railroad asset that may be available to purchase with limited land surrounding the RR line. The RR is not included in the current asking price.The possibilities for the future of Fairfield Lake are countless.

ACCESS & ROAD FRONTAGE: Access to Fairfield Lake is highly desirable with FM 2570 providing access to the North side of the lake, and FM 3285 providing access to the South side of the property. FM 3285 turns into Park Road 64 upon entering the park. County Road 235 provides additional access points to the northeast side of the property, leading to the south and north sides of the lake dam.

DIRECTIONS: From Interstate 45 in Fairfield, TX, go east on HWY 84 to FM 488, stay right on FM 2570, then turn right on FM 3285 until this road dead-ends into Park Road 64 at the entrance of Fairfield Lake State Park.

PROPERTY HISTORY: In 1969, Texas Power and Light Company constructed a dam on Big Brown Creek to create Fairfield Lake. The lake would serve as the cooling reservoir for the Big Brown Power Plant. Fairfield Lake finalized construction in 1969 with the plant operational in 1971.

Big Brown Power Plant warmed the waters of Fairfield Lake year-round, creating a thriving fishery that quickly became popular among anglers across the state. TPWD opened Fairfield Lake State Park in 1976.

The retirement of the power plant in 2018 opened this incredible opportunity to now acquire this unique expansive property.

FAIRFIELD LAKE: This spectacular, recreational lake has exceptional fishing, water skiing, boating activities, and swimming. With an estimated depth of 50 feet at its deepest point, the lake is fed by Big Brown Creek, Little Brown Creek, Hanna Branch, Harpers Branch, Powell Branch, Ball Branch and Dry Branch.

There are currently two public boat ramps located inside the park and one private boat ramp on the north side of the lake. All three concrete ramps are in excellent condition providing multiple access points around the lake.

FISHERIES: While the power plant operated, fishing enthusiasts routinely flocked to Fairfield Lake for the warmed winter water to catch redfish, catfish and largemouth bass. A tropical species, Blue tilapia, took advantage of the warm waters and thrived, but have since disappeared.

After the plant retired, reports of the fisheries have actually improved. Native fish have adjusted to the cooler waters extremely well with 8-10lb largemouth bass being regularly caught. The lake record largemouth is 13.01 lbs. Other current fish species include, catfish, bluegill, sunfish, carp, and alligator gar. There are no crappie, white bass, hybrid bass, or stripers adding to the quality of this black bass fishery.

WATER RIGHTS: Per the December 18, 1967 Certificate of Adjudication, 50,600-acre feet of impoundment rights. In addition, there are 14,150-acre feet of consumptive water rights out of Big Brown Creek that are being retained by the current owner though the opportunity exists to purchase all or a portion of the consumptive water rights. At normal pool, Fairfield Lake stores 44,169 acre-feet of water according to Freese & Nichols 2020 Dam Inspection Report at the normal pool level of 310 feet.

Included in the sale is a water pipeline running from the south end of the lake dam to an inoperable pumping station on the Trinity River via a deeded easement through two adjacent owners. There are currently no water rights or pumping rights from the Trinity River associated with the line.

LAKE DAM: Fairfield Lake’s dam is a 4,350-foot earthen dam that maintained its Low Hazard classification from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) after its 2020 inspection. Diligent upkeep of the dam by the current owner, including the installation of fencing to deter the area’s feral hogs, have kept maintenance costs low relative to dams of similar size.

Fairfield Lake’s dam has aLarge dam classification due to the total lake storage exceeding 50,000-acre feet in storage capacity at the top of the dam. Conservation Pool of 44,169-acre feet and Top of Dam Storage of 70,840-acre feet (per F&N 2020 Report).

Dam Specifications:

Maximum height: 77 feet above the original streambed.
Embankment side slopes: 3 horizontal to 1 vertical
Downstream slope: includes a 130-foot wide stabilizing berm below elevation 290 feet.
Upstream slope: protected by soil cement extending from the crest down to a five-foot berm at elevation 295 feet.

Constructing a dam of this magnitude today would be nearly impossible to get permitted and the cost would be extremely expensive.

PRIMARY & EMERGENCY SPILLWAYS: The 66-foot wide primary spillway is concrete with two 30′ x 14′ radial Tainter gates that control discharges as needed (including one six-foot wide pier). There is also a backup generator in place, should the dam ever lose power. In addition to the primary spillway, the emergency spillway elevation is at 314-feet compared to the normal pool level of 310-feet above sea level.

FAIRFIELD STATE PARK: The park, roughly 1,800 acres, encompasses the southern “half” of the lake, with most of the facilities on the south and southeast shoreline. Upon entry, guests are greeted at the check-in station by TPWD Park Rangers, who guide visitors to a variety of activities and programs within the park.

The park is extremely well kept with attention to detail around every corner. The park’s exceptional road system is highlighted by miles of two lane black top roads meandering through storybook hardwood canopy. Upon settling in on your adventure, activities could include primitive camping, RV camping, hiking, biking, horseback trail riding, nature studies, bird watching, kayaking, water skiing, jet skiing and fishing. Watching children at play on the gently sloping sandy bottom beach area makes for a perfect ending to event filled days at Fairfield Lake.

Points of interest in the park include the Hill Homestead Well, Chancellor Union Cemetery, Ski Cove Overlook, and the Dockery Trail Overlook.

The park improvements currently include a check-in station/shop, dining hall, two park ranger residences, two floating boat docks, two concrete boat ramps with paved turnaround access points, fish cleaning stations, fishing pier, parking areas, numerous restrooms & shower facilities, primitive campsites, RV camping with water and electric to most sites, amphitheater, sand volleyball court, swing set, picnic areas complete with fire pits and grills, Wi-Fi hotspots, maintenance facilities and underground electric run to all improvements inside the park. If the park lease is canceled by the new owner, TPWD has the right to remove any improvements inside the park within 90 days of the cancelation.

TERRAIN: The sandy loam land consists of elevation changes of approximately 130 feet. Elevation is approximately 250 feet above sea level at its lowest and approximately 380 feet above sea level at its highest. There are several creeks and drainages meandering through the landscape feeding into the lake and wetland areas.

TREE COVER & PASTURELAND: The high banks surrounding Fairfield Lake consist of an old growth hardwood canopy. Improved grasses dominate the north end of the lake and lake dam. Native grasses thrive in the open meadows throughout the park. Uplands consist of a variety of oaks intermixed with flowering dogwoods during the Spring bloom. Towering oak, elm, pecan, and ash trees grow in the rich bottomlands along Big Brown Creek.

WETLANDS: Behind the spillway there is shallow drainage that feeds into ~6-acre and ~3-acre wetland areas. Alternatively, the south end of the lake presents multiple wetland ecosystems. Waterfowl can be found in the backwaters of Fairfield Lake as well as 5-6 semi-open flooded timber holes scattered along the two main creek systems feeding the lake. Wetland cattail, bulrush, and water lily along the lake’s edge create a marshland oasis for birds, turtles, and frogs.

WILDLIFE: The array of wildlife includes an abundance of white-tailed deer, armadillos, raccoons, river otters, beavers, squirrels, foxes, bobcats and coyotes. Sights of the skies include 180 species of birds including herons, raptors, songbirds, shorebirds and waterfowl. Bald eagles spend their winter months at the lake and colorful painted buntings are frequently seen in the summertime.

MINERALS: No minerals are believed to be owned by the Seller and none will convey.

There are 3 active gas wells on the interior of the property.

OUTPARCELS: Hopewell Church is located within the Young Cemetery on the north side of the property on a small 30-acre island connected by a land bridge. On the south side of the lake, surrounded by the park, is the Chancellor Union Cemetery, a Texas Historic Landmark with ties to the Civil War. Both cemeteries are not believed to negatively impact the property, but to provide history and areas of interest.

STRUCTURAL IMPROVEMENTS: There are two ranger residences and numerous other facilities in the park. In the northern acreage there is one residence converted into office space and a conference center with overnight facilities. The residence and conference center need significant refurbishment. There are also several maintenance buildings for storing equipment and materials. The homes/conference center vary in condition and none of the homes or other structures contribute substantially to the property’s overall asking price.

EASEMENTS/RIGHT-OF-WAYS: There is one main gas pipeline that crosses the park with three feeder lines to each of the well sites. Two cell towers, one being an easement and the other a lease. The Oncor tower is a perpetual easement with no income associated with the tower. The second tower, operated for Verizon, is a lease and generates monthly income. Both towers are located on the northern acreage.

The Covenant Ranch

Posted on: October 3rd, 2021 by Swope Louie

The Covenant Ranch is a magnificent South Texas hunting ranch that is well-known for producing great quality, trophy whitetail deer. The 8,988-acre ranch is designed to offer the very best when it comes to hunting and recreation. The land has been exceptionally well managed, with many improvements added over the years to enhance the quality and quantity of the wildlife. The iconic main lodge overlooks Biel Lake, a 300-acre cultural reservoir that is believed to be the largest privately owned lake in South Texas. With its incredible history, top-notch lodging, high-quality wildlife, and well-designed improvements, this massive South Texas property is an opportunity to own a unique ranch of exceptional quality.

The Covenant Ranch is located in the heart of Texas famed south Texas brush country in northeast Webb County, only a few miles from the home of the famed Muy Grande deer contest in Freer, Texas. The whitetail deer have been actively and intensely managed for over twenty years and currently under TPWDs Managed Land Deer Program. The intense deer management of genetic breeding utilizing their 5 DMP pens, selective harvest, maintaining adequate age structure and doe per buck ratios, coupled with excellent high protein brush has created some of the best trophy hunting in the state. As a supplement to the excellent browse available, whole cottonseed is distributed throughout the ranch. Proper habitat management has also provided outstanding populations of bobwhite quail, scaled quail, mourning dove, javelina, hogs, coyotes, bobcats, and many resident and migrating non-game species. The lakes on the property attract migrating waterfowl, providing occasional waterfowl hunting as well. Besides the excellent hunting available, several of the smaller tanks provide fishing opportunities.

Being in the heart of south Texas, The Covenant Ranch boasts some of the greatest diversity of high protein brush available providing all the essential browse to grow large trophy whitetail deer. Examples of this brush diversity include mesquite, black brush, guajillo, guayacan, granjeno, twisted acacia, brazil, persimmon, kidneywood, coma, four-winged saltbush, cenizo, white brush, prickly pear and many more. Topography of the ranch is deemed flat to undulating offering excellent views throughout the ranch. Diverse soils range from clay to sandy clay to fine sandy loam which also increases diversity of brush, forbs, and grasses. While Buffel grass dominates some of the improved areas, native grasses and forbs thrive throughout.

Brush management on the ranch has been an integral aspect of improving the wildlife habitat on the ranch. Selective clearing, food plots, and brush sculpting in strips and mosaic patterns provide greater edge effect, allowing for increased forb and grass production which has enriched the deer herd and all the native wildlife on the ranch. These brush strips and clearings provide prime quail habitat and optimal quail hunting locations. There are countless miles of wide roads, senderos, and clearings. Prescribed burning and shredding help maintain these areas. Additionally, there are 10+ fallow food plots and/or fenced fields that can be revitalized and planted as food plots for livestock or wildlife.

Brush is extremely valuable to wildlife in south Texas, and the Covenant Ranch possesses the majority of woody plant species found in the region.

Lake Medina Deep Water Showplace

Posted on: August 13th, 2021 by Lamb Jerrett

Lake Medina – Deep Water – With Unrestricted Development Opportunity

This spectacular piece of property is located along the southern line of Lake Medina in Medina County and only minutes from San Antonio. The property is a combination of a single 2.235 Acre lot in the Brandon’s Cove Subdivision and 5.901 Unrestricted Acres with ownership below the 1084-foot elevation (rare opportunity).

The uniqueness of this property is showcased in the majestic bluff’s along the more than 1,500-feet of clear Lake Medina waterfront. The property lies within the Cove dubbed as Devils Kitchen and Brandon Cove. Access to the lake and cove are provided by a beautiful trail of solid concrete steps/stairways/landings, which meander through a flora/fauna seemingly worlds away from the Hill Country backdrop. This walkway system was originally installed as part of a proposed recreational/lodging development. Long since abandoned, the infrastructure remains, and is poised for a developer to enhance, or for an end-user to build the dream-home of a lifetime.

The land forming the peninsula has a level grade and large building envelope along its top ridge and could serve as a beautiful canvas for a home, which would take-in the views and backdrop of Lake Medina. Alternatively, a resort-styled lake cabin retreat could provide for a recreational revenue stream or Air-B-N-B.

The property has an existing water well and electricity is on-site. An older dwelling has been removed from the property, which had no contributory value and there is presumed to be an existing Septic System (condition unknown).

Property like this is not only rare, but largely unavailable in Texas. The size and water frontage alone are rare for the Texas Hill Country on lakes as pristine as Lake Medina. After sustaining a terrible loss in lake levels over the last 10-years, Lake Medina has recovered and no longer is being arbitrarily drained. Various litigation has been brought against the Bexar, Medina, Atascosa (BMA) organization due to the non-supported release of waters from Lake Medina. This litigation has served to afford a voice to support a minimal release and a sustained water level for the lake.

Located along a very private access (entering through the gated Brandon Cove Subdivision), the property enjoys limited exposure from road traffic, giving it the solitude afforded by few similar tracts in the Texas Hill Country. The single-lot in the Brandon Cove Subdivision affords additional (largely non-buildable) land and water-front areas just waiting to be explored.

If a piece of heaven is what you are looking for to construct your masterpiece, then you have found your site. Additionally, if a commercial lodging/recreational opportunity is what you are seeking, bring your ideas and put them to work on this one-of-a-kind location. Give us a call for your private tour, but bring your walking shoes and have your camera ready to experience something truly unique.
