Situated just northeast of Waco, Texas, the “Leroy Place” offers a rare opportunity to own a diverse, large acreage property while still being conveniently located just minutes from the major metropolitan areas in Texas. This diverse piece of land has been in the same family for over 50 years. It is believed that a major portion dates back to 1849 when Thomas Rhoads received the original land grant from the State of Texas.
With many large ranches being broken up and sold in today’s market, it is easy to forget what it feels like to drive across the land and see for miles in every direction. That feeling is just what you get when you enter the gates of the “Leroy Place.” The main entrance brings you straight into the heart of the property. Traveling to the southeast you will traverse the hillside which leads you past one of three tanks located on this 660 plus acre property. As you continue you can see for miles to the northwest, looking towards the hills that lead back to Waco. The highest point of elevation is 530 ft, which is also where you will find the largest tank measuring around 2 ½ acres. Get ready to catch some amazing fish or hunt some of the various species of waterfowl that make this tank their home year after year.
Travelling back down the hill you will come to approximately 250 acres of cultivated farmland which is divided by three seasonal creeks. Roberts Creek and Cottonwood Creek meander from the eastern edge of the “Leroy Place” until meeting up with Elm Creek/Tehuacana Creek and then continue wandering to the western boundary. There is no shortage of water, cover and productive land on this diverse property.
The “Leroy Place” is set up to continue as a cattle and farm operation. This property would also make an amazing recreational property with its varied terrain, elevation changes and wildlife.
Take this opportunity to own one of the larger parcels of land left in McLennan County!
