524 acres - 1220 Farm

Location:

Located on County Road 1220  in southeastern Delta County, 7 ½ miles southeast of Lake Creek, Texas, 12 miles east of Cooper, Texas, and only a short 1 ½ hour drive from the DFW area.

Terrain:

The 1220 Farm is a multiuse farm complete with a 5,400 sq. ft. barndominium   located on the southern portion of the property accessible by a nice caliche topped road. The farm has a great mix of improved grass pastures, thick hardwood forest, and cultivated farmland. A pure bred Brahman program has been in operation for several years on the farm and the health of the herd is a clear reflection of the excellent range management the farm has taken with its pastures for grazing and hay production. The owners have cleared and reclaimed several areas for pasture development. These pastures also have the added benefit of one or more livestock ponds to facilitate the needs of the cattle. In addition to the farming & ranching amenities, perhaps the greatest asset to this property is the outdoor opportunities that exist on the farm. An astounding 12 stock ponds are found evenly distributed throughout the 524 acres, two of which are larger 3 and 6 acre lakes. These are also great fisheries, being stocked with bass, crappie, and perch and take advantage of the ample rain supply and good black land soil that produces deep clear water for ponds and lakes. In additional to fishing, waterfowl hunters will find the many water sources allow for outstanding habitat for ducks and geese which produce some awesome waterfowl hunting with decoys in the fall and winter seasons. With close proximity to the Sulphur River and Jim Chapman Lake, a great variety of waterfowl use this property throughout the season. The 1220 Farm also boasts frontage of Lake Creek through the heart of the property that provide a great travel corridor for larger game in the area such as whitetail deer, turkey, and wild hog. A dense hardwood forest comprised of hickory, locust, and many varieties of oaks supply wildlife with shelter and mass nutrition in the area. Several lanes or “senderos” have been cleared through the dense forest that benefits the property. These areas allow viewing for hundreds of yards to scan for game traveling from one area to the next and are great spots for hunting blind setups. Second these openings are wide enough that browse for wildlife has the opportunity to grow where it normally wouldn’t just a few feet away in the shaded areas of the forest.  Food plots are also great additions to these areas for the wildlife. Lastly, the edge covers these strips create are great transition zones, where wildlife feel more comfortable. The northeast portion of the farm has 120 acres that is in cultivation and provides the sportsman with many activities as well. These large agricultural fields are excellent areas for hunting geese feeding on the planted crops. For the varmint hunter, the large open areas are great choices for predator calling, as coyotes, bobcats, and foxes are common to the farm. The thick bottomlands are always a great spot to hunt the wild hogs that flourish in this area of East Texas. It is not uncommon for boars to reach 250+ pounds and produce exceptional trophy tusks. These provide a year round opportunity for the hunter to enjoy. Obviously the abundance of Whitetail deer in the area will always provide heart-pounding excitement as well! A durable 100’ steel bridge has simplified access throughout the property over Lake Creek that makes travel easy even during the wettest times of the year. In addition a culvert and rock crossing has been constructed just north of the headquarters over a smaller creek for year round travel. Whatever your interests are, the 1220 Farm is the perfect addition. From the spacious barndominium, to its efficient cattle operation, or the countless outdoor adventures, this property is nothing short of amazing!

Improvements:

A 5,400 sq. ft. barndominium with 2 electric rollup shop doors that provide access to the spacious 3,264 sq. ft. insulated shop. The west shop entrance has been designed taller to allow extra room to accommodate RV vehicles. A nice covered apron off the north side of the shop completes the rollup entrances and allows good airflow during the warmer months. The living area of the barndominium is an expansive 2,142 sq. ft. 4 bedroom/4 bath home that is located on the east end of the shop. Two master bedrooms/baths with two additional guest bedrooms/baths allow for plenty of room for guests to enjoy the 1220 Farm during overnight stays. The great room that encompasses both the living room and kitchen features a rock fireplace with vaulted ceilings and granite topped kitchen countertops that provide ample space to share memories from a great day in the field. A large pantry and laundry room also are very handy and provide the modern conveniences of home.  From the great room just a few steps away leads you to a full length covered porch found on the east side of the barndominium. Front porches are all about relaxation and a view from this porch is nothing short of amazing as one gazes down to the 3 acre stocked lake just below the house. Beyond the beautiful headquarters through tall red oaks northward takes you to the cattle operation and farm equipment storage area. A large 36’X75’ equipment barn and 36’ X 50’ cow shed are both set neatly just east of a covered set of pens equipped with Q-catch squeeze chute. Another great asset of the 1220 Farm is the fencing. Perimeter and interior fences include over 52, 351 feet of new 5 and 6 strand barbed wire with metal tubing gates. This allows for easy transitioning between the divided pastures for both cattle and vehicles. Careful planning with fencing has created a truly efficient design as cattle can be penned, sorted, and worked. Across from the barns is an elevated round bale stack lot that has been built to keep forage dry and within easy access.
