Once a part of the famous Noyes Ranch, the Fountain Creek Ranch is an outstanding 1,382 acres that is conveniently located approximately 20 miles WSW of Brady and approximately 20 miles ESE of Eden. The property fronts CR 3477 (Callan Rd.).
The landscape of this high fenced property is diverse in soils and tree cover, giving it a feel of several different ranches under one fence. The gently rolling topography has a 100 foot elevation change and offers distant views from various locations. Tree cover consists of live oak, shin oak, and mesquite. Some areas have been cleared of brush and mesquite, leaving a park of large live oaks, good native grasses, and areas for food plots. There is a good and easily drivable interior road system. The current owner has been told that the land is one of the strongest in the area for cattle. Fountain Creek (intermittent) meanders across the property and there are several sites that have the possibility for a lake or ponds. There are several stock tanks to provide water coverage throughout the property some stocked with catfish.
Water to the improvements is supplied by a shared Hickory Sand Well (3,500 ft). The well services three contiguous properties and the ranch is well watered with pipelines, storage reservoirs, and troughs.
Improvements include a 3 bedroom, 2 bath double wide home (approx. 1,920 sq. ft.). The home is in very good condition and has a great covered porch to enjoy the sunsets. In addition to the home is a one bedroom, one bath hunters cabin, an implement barn, and a set of pipe working pens.
The ranch has been high fenced for 20+ years and game include black buck, axis, white tail, turkey, dove, and varmints. Several years ago a previous owner brought in northern genetics with several doe from Ohio. Most of the blinds and feeders will convey.
If you are looking for a ranch with a lot of character and great hunting, the Fountain Creek Ranch is worth a look.
