Exceptional Views with Unlimited Potential !! This Classic 1900's Farmhouse sits high on a hill, well off of the paved road with majestic views to the southwest. The property has been in the same family since 1968.

There are two 2-car garages and a carport allowing for plenty of parking. The property has 70' of elevation change from the backyard down to the Mill Creek bottom where an abundance of wildlife graze in the evenings. The large equipment barn with tool room and tack room together with a 3600' hay barn will give a buyer plenty of storage options. Extensive irrigation and electrical facilities are found throughout the property. It is Ag Exempt and 100% of the minerals are negotiable. This property is a must see for someone looking to put their own stamp on a classic Texas Country Ranch.
