Sunny Dell Farm

225 Acres    ·    Lavaca County, Schulenburg, TX    ·    $2,500,000

Sunny Dell Farm presents a charming, well-maintained, family-oriented property.  This peaceful and secluded setting comes with a 5BR/4BA immaculate, modern farmhouse, West Navidad River frontage, rolling pastures, and a constant level 5 acre stocked lake.  The property was designed for family gatherings and outdoor recreational enjoyment that all family members can enjoy through the years.

Location and Access:  The location of this ranch is in the highly sought after Schulenberg/Halletsville area with easy access from Houston, San Antonio, and Austin.  Access is off of a beautiful tree-lined, private road only a few miles east of Hwy 77 and 6 miles south of Schulenberg off I-10.  The surrounding neighborhood is composed of small, well-kept farms, pasture land, and quiet rural communities.

The Land:  The property is a good mixture of improved pastures and undisturbed wooded areas. The pastures include irrigated Coastal Bermuda that yield large round bales of hay each year. These pastures are interspersed with groves of large hardwoods, including many magnificent oak trees. The magnificent oaks are said to be some of the largest and oldest in the county. Thick clusters of trees populate both sides of the West Navidad River as it courses through the property.

Water Features:  The west fork of the Navidad River crosses a portion of the northeastern section of the ranch for a distance of approximately 2/3 mile. In addition, a pump fed, constant level, 5 acre lake is fed by a strong well located in the middle of the property just below the house. This is a recreational lake stocked with bass. On this lake is a large pier which has a screened in area with running water and a sink for cleaning fish. Another excellent well is located near the house.  Of major note, in the southwest section of the property there is a constant flowing large spring, lined with towering oak trees which form a canope over a display of native ferns. There is also a spring-fed pond located on the east side of the property providing access for livestock.

Improvements:  Centrally located in the property is the 5BR/4BA house with 2 fireplaces constructed in 1983 and remodeled in 1998 with hardiplank siding.  Located at a higher elevation, this home features panoramic views of the surrounding countryside plus the large lake down below. Other features include an attractive outdoor firepit with stone foundation and a nearby built-in large barbeque pit, both located just west of the house. Other building improvements are a barn, 2 equipment sheds, and a well-appointed workshop fully equipped with power tools.  A nice feature for the sportsman is a trap and skeet range with 4 shooting stations for sporting clays located below the home and by the lake. This property sale will include all furniture and fixtures, kitchen appliances and utensils, and farm equipment, including a John Deere Model 542 tractor, new doublewide shredder, an irrigation hose trailer, a John Deere Z425 mower, and 2 UTVs, a Polaris Ranger and a John Deere 6×4 Gator.
