TRIPLE CREEK RANCH
The Triple Creek Ranch is a working cattle seed stock ranch. Total acreage is 1,133.36 per CAD but will be surveyed. The ranch consists of 17 tracts in both McLennan and Hill Counties. The bulk of the acreage is in McLennan County. 109 acres +/- is not contiguous to the main ranch acreage but is located just 2 miles to the southwest along Heritage Parkway (see aerial). Improvements consist of the primary ranch house, two ranch managers homes, commodity barn, state-of-the-art cattle barn, miles of new barbed wire fence, 21 fenced interior pastures with fenced working lanes to all, multiple outbuildings, electric gates, pipe fencing, and much more.
The main ranch house was built in 1997. With just under 3,000sf this home has been recently and tastefully renovated with no expense spared. I have created a downloadable PDF that has all photos (see addendum). The home has a custom outdoor pool oasis and grilling patio. This 3-bed 3-bath home will not disappoint. The owners suite is beautifully modernized in a western theme. The most recent addition to the ranch is the ranch managers home (plans available in docs). This home is 1,829sf with 3-beds, 2-baths, and large porches. The home is fome is foam insulated with vaulted ceilings, large front and rear porches.
The older existing managers home is a manufactured home that has been improved/modified to the extent it is hard to distinguish it as a mobile home. The home has 1,400sf, 3-beds, 2-baths, wrap porch, metal roof, and the interior has been completed replaced. This home is built on grade with a nice storage/office located below.
THE BARN is a state-of-the-art cattle facility specifically built for the ranch in 2017. It is equipped with lab, office, apartment, loft, working pens, shop, and more. MCAD reports the barn size at 7,300sf. . The latest improvement is the commodities barn. With 2,640sf under roof this metal barn was constructed in 2021.
The main body of the ranch has been sectioned into 21 fenced pastures that are all accessible via fenced lanes. The owner claims one man can move cattle from one end of the ranch to the other. All pastures have stock tanks. There are four water meters total supplied by Birome Water. All ranch equipment is included in the list price (see attached spread sheet). All furniture in the main house is also available at an acceptable offer.
The Triple Creek Ranch is located near the geometric center of the golden Texas Triangle (DFW to San Antonio to Houston, see addendum). 80% of Texas' population lives within that triangle and there are some models that forecast the population to be 55 million by 2050. See attached document from Texas State Demographer.
The Triple Creek Ranch is located less than 20 minutes north east of Waco, TX and is easily accessible via SH 31. The Dallas/Ft. Worth metro area is also easily accessible via Heritage Parkway north to IH 35. The land shows like a park. It has been meticulously cleared, root plowed, shaped, and seeded. Only 300+/- acres remains in its natural state. This section is located east of County Line Road in Hill County. We believe there is development potential in that acreage as there is a natural ridge line that would promote nice views to the north. There have been several 10-acre sales along County Line Road (south) which have all closed in 2022 from $15,500 - $16,700/acre (see addendum). This may benefit the new owner in the years to come.
This ranch would make a very nice addition to an already existing larger cattle operation. It would also make a very nice permanent residence for a family looking to make a life change. All the hard work has been done. While the current owner operates a seed stock operation, it would make a very nice stocker or cow-calf operation. I am not authorized to include the current Beefmaster cattle herd in the current list price, but they can be purchased. The owner values the herd at 2.5MM. I can provide an inventory upon request.
The information contained in this listing is deemed reliable but not guaranteed. I reserve the right to make changes to listing as necessary.
I will need a minimum of 48 hours to show as I have to displace three families. Proof of funds/qualifications is required prior to showing the ranch. The ranch is priced on an asset basis. I can provide P&L and Balance sheet on the current seed stock operation but your prospect will need to sign a non-disclosure. The owner wants to maintain as much privacy as possible. The quoted tax levy is for tax with exemptions. With exception to the residential tracts, the ranch is in 1-D-1 Open Space Ag Exemption status. Thank you
