Overview: The Ennis 226 Ranch is a well-diversified ranch teeming with agricultural features, complemented by recreation and diverse potential income sources! Lending well to the term "combination ranch," the property is traversed by 3 unnamed creek tributaries that meander through notable topography. Creek channels, robust water resources, and hardwood boundaries to the north, east, and west support wildlife habitat. This multipurpose ranch has been used primarily for quality family time, general recreation, and livestock/hay production. Additionally, the ranch boasts excellent balance with modest topography, scenic build sites, hardwood-lined creek banks, improved pastures, and 10 ponds up to 4+ surface acres in size. A heavy-duty set of working pens, cross fencing and rural water meters provide added utility to the property. The Ennis 226 ranch offers opportunities for development in the form of home sites with acreage. The property includes over 800+/- feet of frontage on Texas Highway 34.
Improvements: A heavy-duty set of working pens and hay trap are located central to the property for convenience and efficiency. Cross fences complement the boundary fences for rotational grazing. Boundary fences are in fair to moderate condition. Some cross fencing is in need of repair. Multiple ponds, internal roadbeds, and 2 rural water meters round out the improvements located on the property. An R-panel boat storage shed has been erected near the larger soil conservation reservoir.

The southern 30+/- acres of the property possess improved grasses and lend well to hay production.
