One Of A Kind! - Nestled amongst the banks of the historic Pease River (located on paved FM 104), Rustic River Ranch consists of approximately 353 acres of some of the most diverse terrain one can imagine for this part of the Texas Panhandle. High bluffs along the river provide excellent glassing opportunities, while deep canyons and arroyos provide plenty of shade and cool areas for the wildlife. The large hardwood trees offer great roosting spots for the numerous turkeys. The ½ mile of gravel and reclaimed asphalt driveway, and thick brush cover of mesquite and juniper, provide excellent privacy. With the numerous varieties of wildlife on the property, Rustic River Ranch also pulls wildlife from the huge neighboring ranches that have little to no hunting pressure. The 3 cultivated fields (66 acres, 18 acres and 17 acres) are in wheat and sorghum. 8 food plots offer milo, wheat, and peanuts for excellent nutritional value to the wildlife. Wildlife seen across the ranch include mule deer, white tail deer, turkey, hogs, rabbits, dove, sandhill cranes and a healthy quail population. Which in turn draws coyotes, bobcats, raccoons and the very elusive badger. With the Pease River meandering through the northern portion of the ranch for approximately 1/2-mile, 3 water wells with pressure tanks in insulated well houses, approximately 3 miles of underground water lines, and irrigation to all 8 of the food plots, the wildlife have numerous options for drinking water. Built in 2012, the 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom barndominium is approximately 1800 sq. ft., with central heat and air, featuring aspen and hand-hewn cypress staircase, old barn tin ceiling and wainscoting accent, and stained concrete floors. The gathering room features a heavy duty, double door, Fisher wood burning stove that can heat the entire barndominium. The kitchen features granite counters, abundant storage, stainless steel appliances including a 5-burner gas range, built in microwave, dishwasher and side-by-side refrigerator/freezer. Downstairs are 2 oversized bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The baths feature granite counters and tile showers. Upstairs are 2 additional bedrooms and another full bath with granite counter and tile floor. Laundry facilities include top of the line, extra-large front-loading washer and dryer. Between the 480 sq. ft east facing covered porch and the 520 sq. ft covered outdoor kitchen (with custom wood fired pizza oven from Italy, extra-large Green Egg Smoker, extra-large deep fry burner, built-in Jenn-Aire gas grill, stainless steel refrigerator, stainless steel sink, granite counters, and cabinets with stainless steel doors), you will certainly not struggle trying to find room for entertaining. 3 separate enclosed stations feature Promatic Hardwired Sporting Clay machines for a fun afternoon of target practice. The shop is 50x40 with 2 overhead doors measuring 14x14 with electric opener, and 12x12, concrete floors, electricity, 4 skylights and a 20x40 covered parking area. The 24x24 insulated cleaning house has a 24x22 covered parking area and inside features metal surround for extra cleanliness. Also, inside is a 12x10 walk-in cooler, electric hoist, stainless steel counter, stainless steel sink, stainless steel table, water heater, chest freezer, a sloped concrete floor with drain, heat and a/c. The flight pen/aviary is 72x144, built with 2 7/8” steel pipe with exterior concrete footing surround to prevent critters from digging in. This area also has a 20x144 metal roof and a 52x144 netting roof along with running water. Adjacent to the flight pen is a 20x20 metal storage building with concrete floor and electricity. High Speed Fiber Optic internet (with Wi-Fi) is available and supplied by Santa Rosa Communications. Property comes with 9 HB 700# EZ Reach wildlife feeders along with 9 rifle blinds and 3 bow blinds. Only 18 miles Southeast of Childress, this ranch offers excellent access anytime of the year.
