Black Walnut Farms - Henderson County, LaRue, TX

Black Walnut Farms is located directly off the paved County Rd 4402 in the rolling hills of Larue, Texas. The location boasts a convenient drive time of 20 minutes to Athens and only an hour and a half from Dallas. The property is in turnkey condition and includes 2 houses, a professional horse barn with living quarters, a pond, equipment barn, hay barn, and an enclosed metal shop. 

Named from the abundance of native Black Walnut trees, the property has a mixture of natural mature forest, improved Bermuda hayfields, and multiple improved fenced livestock pastures. The wooded areas provide cover and habitat for wildlife including deer, hogs, and turkeys. Deer are seen in abundance utilizing the farm on almost a daily basis. The lush Bermuda hay fields provide income during the summer months producing around 100 premium round bales per cutting. There are 7 different fenced-in pastures designed for horses but can be used for any livestock.

Main House – The main house is located through an electric gate down a long-paved driveway that is lined with Chinese pistachio trees. Surrounded by a white fence and located next to the pond, this house is in a picturesque position on the farm. The main house is a two-story 3-bedroom, 2.5 bath, 2400 sf home that has a front and back porch with a 2-car garage as well as an additional detached 2 car garage and fenced-in backyard.

Guest House – The guest house is a nice well-built 1900 sf 3-bedroom 2 bath with an office and attached carport. Previously used as a ranch foreman’s house, this house has a separate entrance to and from the property and a fenced-in backyard. There are large trees all around and a flagpole up front that makes this a beautiful spot.

Master Horse barn and full living quarters – The horse barn and living quarters is 6,800 sf of everything you could want for a horse barn and stables. The barn has 7 individual horse stalls each with its own outdoor run. There is a full horse shower stall, shooing rack, grooming stall, and multiple storage and tack rooms. The living quarters’ area is 2,000 sf and includes a bedroom, full kitchen, bathroom, large living room area and laundry room. The quarters have some beautiful rustic features including white rock walls, stained rock floors and decorative wooden trim. 

Water – There is a picturesque pond situated in the middle of the houses. Two different small creeks run across the property that flow with water during the wetter months. One of these creeks flows with spring-like activity for a large part of the year. Each pasture has water lines and water troughs installed to keep your livestock with year-round water.

Irrigated/Water wells – The property has two water wells. One that runs to the main house and barn, then another large well capable of 300+ gallons/minute that has water lines running from it throughout the property including to the pond. This gives you the ability to have large amounts of water at multiple points across the farm. The previous owner used it to water the hay fields and pastures but the opportunities for it are endless. Some examples could be agricultural farming or wetland creation and management. The houses and buildings are on separate public water.

Fenced Pastures – There are 7 separate fenced-in pastures that total around 7 acres. Designed for horses, the fencing is built of 4’ horse wire constructed with painted Pipe fencing. There are 4 pastures connected to the barn with a run in between them that makes for an ease of moving animals in between them. The other 3 pastures are located conveniently around the barn with great access to and from.

High fenced – The property is high fenced on 2 sides setting it up to be very easily high fenced on the remaining 2 low fenced sides if so desired.

Black Walnut Farms is a beautiful and peaceful property with plenty of opportunities for a multitude of activities. It really offers it all, ranging from equestrian facilities to hunting to farming, all within an hour and a half from Dallas.
