The 350 acres is setup for the serious whitetail enthusiast or outdoorsman looking for a first-class ranch. The centerpiece of this property is the headquarters with the outstanding four bedroom, 3.5 bath lodge located in the northwest side of the property. The exterior of the home features Lueders Limestone that is complimented by the 100-year standing seam metal roof. The layout of this lodge was well planned and designed for the active lifestyle or commercial use. Custom granite countertops and wood cabinets/shelving have been incorporated in almost every room in this beautiful lodge. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances and a full-length granite combination countertop/bar that opens into the vaulted great room. The great room has a large fireplace and high ceilings to display those hunting trophies in the perfect ambiance. The expansive master bedroom has a walk-in closet, master bath with twin granite vanity countertops, and oversized ceramic shower. Additional bedrooms feature built-in bunks and full bathrooms to allow ample lodging for guests. A walk-in pantry keeps all the extra food storage neatly tucked away, yet within easy access to serve any size group. Down the hallway a secure gunroom with cabinets and gunsafe keep all the hunting gear ready to go for all the outdoor activities. The unbelievable back patio is the perfect place for entertaining guests at the ranch any time of the day. The grilling area is just steps away from the large dining table and outdoor fireplace under the covered area. Watching the sunset from the 6-7 person hot tub or a sitting around the large stone fire-pit completes the back porch experience. Mud and laundry rooms are conveniently located near the backdoor and porte-cechere. An attached 3-car garage with single and double doors allows for plenty of secure vehicle and UTV storage just steps away. The entire lodge has beautiful and low maintenance stained concrete floors to handle all the messes that any hunting lodge can dish out! Beyond the lodge is a 30’x50’ insulated high-sided metal workshop. The shop is equipped with 2 large electric roll-up doors that take advantage of cross flow ventilation in the warmer months of the year and provides plenty of room for equipment storage. Other added bonuses include a built-in full bath and laundry, epoxied floor, and RV septic/hookups. Out of the main view and just north of the shop is a twin 40’ storage container covered equipment storage area. The whitetail hunting/breeding operation at Five Star Ranch has also been well designed with quality materials and efficiency in mind. Nine breeding pens are located on the west end of the property, with protein feeders and wildlife ponds located within each pens. Welded pipe gates transitional alleys make wildlife handling operations quick and simple. An 8-ton elevated feed bin and air drive feed trailer make quick work of filling the twelve protein and ten electronic automatic feeders around the ranch. Outside the breeding pen, the ranch consists of rolling mesquite flats with a seasonal wet weather creek that flows through the center of the property. Thick hardwoods, primarily hackberry and browse are located along the creek. For many years previously, this property was intensively managed for bobwhite quail hunting and it is very common to see multiple coveys as you travel the ranch.  Additional exotic game species such as blackbuck antelope, scimitar oryx, and axis deer can be found around every bend of the ranch. An abundance of browse can also be found within the 5 food plots around on the property.  Premium hunting blind setups are located around these game rich areas with four elevated stands and 1 hydraulic lift stand that is trailer mounted for mobile use. Additional hunting stands and feeder are available at the ranch headquarters. Surface water includes 14 wildlife ponds that have been constructed across the property, the largest of which just below the lodge features a beautiful lighted fountain to entertain guests. Access to this secluded property is through twin automatic security gates off of minimally travelled Halsell Road. A secondary automatic security gate provides extra level of security and peace of mind. The perimeter game fence is in excellent condition and has pipe/concrete water gaps with a predator apron running the length of the ranches boundary. Interior roads are newly built with concrete or culvert style creek crossings and are in excellent condition. Five Star Ranch is an outstanding property with amenities that rival the beauty and value of the rugged land on which the property is located. This makes it one of the most desirable hunting properties in the North Texas market today!
