There are several wet weather drainages on the ranch offering excellent wildlife habitat and travel corridors.


On the south end of the property just north of  Wendel Road there is a beautiful 2,850 SF custom home (3BR plus bonus room upstairs, 4.5BA) that, depending on the new owner’s objectives, could be a permanent ranch home or an interim home while constructing their forever ranch home on one of the may spectacular building sites on the ranch. The back porch of the home offers a spectacular view of the western sunsets.

Portions of the ranch perimeter are high fenced; the remainder are low fenced.

The main entrance to the ranch is off Wendell Road with large custom automatic gate.
