This is a desirable recreational ranch in a rural part of Parker County off the beaten path. It is a multipurpose property currently used for grazing cattle and hunting. It has been in the same family for decades. Land characteristics are versatile and scenic with 1 large tank in the north pasture and 4 smaller tanks in the south pasture. Sportsmen will find largemouth bass, waterfowl, turkey, dove, feral hogs and whitetail deer making this a great hunting property. There are several excellent building sites with big sprawling views, rocky hillsides, seasonal drainages, and a nice variety of trees.
Location: Cougar Road Ranch is located in a desirable area in southwestern Parker County, approximately 60+/- miles southwest of the Dallas & Fort Worth metroplex. The ranch has frontage on Cougar Road which is an all-weather county road in good condition.
Directions: From Weatherford travel west on Interstate 20 until Dennis Road exit. Go south on Dennis Road for many miles until FM 1189 (south of Brock, TX). Take a left on FM 1189 going through Dennis, TX and crossing the Brazos River. After the river, take a right on Cougar Road. Follow paved Cougar Road west until it turns into a county maintained all-weather road. Property will be 1.1+/- miles from pavement on the southside of Cougar Road. If you get to Gilbert Pit Road then you have gone too far and need to turn around.
Topography: Cougar Road Ranch features unique ridges, rolling hills, impressive views, and over 100 feet of elevation change. Views are breathtaking from the south portion of the property. There are no major creeks, but 3 drainages seasonally run water.
Trees & Vegetation: What gives this property a lot of its beauty is the abundance of trees. Trees are primarily live oak, elm, hackberry, cedar, mesquite, and red oak with a variety of other trees. Tree coverage is 75% wooded with the balance being open meadows. Native browse, trees, and forbs are versatile and benefit the wildlife. Grasses are all native and the property is leased and currently being grazed.
Hunting: The wildlife habitat is good and therefore it is believed that the hunting is above average. Although the property has great locations for hunting setups, no real management program has been in place and the property was not hunted at all in the 2017-2018 season. Dove hunting can be very good, but planted sunflower patches could make for more consistent populations of birds. Cougar Road Ranch also has turkey, hogs, deer and ducks. Wildlife includes different species of varmints including coyotes, foxes, and bobcats.
Surface Water: There is one large stock tank in the north pasture and four smaller tanks in the south pasture. Water levels fluctuate in dry months, but water is adequate to run cattle in both pastures. There are several locations that appear feasible for constructing additional stock ponds as well.
Land Enhancement: Two upland flats have been strategically cleared which greatly enhances the property. These cleared areas would make excellent cultivated fields for wildlife and cattle. A wheat/ native sunflower combination would work excellent in this area.
Fencing: Property is perimeter fenced and will hold cattle. There is a new cross fence with steel posts and barbed wire creating two pastures.
School District: The property is in the Lipan ISD.
Minerals: It is believed that the owners do not own any mineral interests. There is no active oil & gas production or active leases on the ranch.
Utilities: Santo Special Utility District completed a feasibility study for adding up to three new 5/8" water meters to the subject property. The findings indicate that the proposed meters could be served by extending a 2" water line approximately 5,700 feet from its current location. There is little to no ground water in this area so this would add a tremendous amount of value to the property. Electricity is approximately 2000 feet away and is provided by Tri-County Electric Cooperative.
Taxes: Annual property taxes are approximately $514. Property is agriculturally exempt.
Legal Description: 310.92 acres located in Abstract 2655, ZR Smithers & D Woodruff Survey AND in Abstract 2530, WF Hill Survey located in Parker County, TX on Cougar Road.
Price: $4150 per acre ($1,286,500)
