Property descriptionOVERVIEW Experience country living and all that it has to offer on this gorgeous 151.937-acre farm in Lee County. Sunrises, sunsets, hilltop views, rolling pastures, and over 5 acres of private water make this property a must see! A ranch house, income producing pastureland, working corrals, and two large ponds make Sunset Farm a turnkey property.LOCATION Sunset Farm is located ~7.5 miles northwest of downtown Giddings in the unincorporated town of Lincoln, and is within the Giddings Independent School District.
UTILITIES Lincoln Water Supply and Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative provide the water and electricity to the house on the property. The house is also plumbed to a private septic tank. Three additional hookups for water, electricity, and septic are located near the existing ranch house at the front of the property.
IMPROVEMENTS There is a homely 1,000 SF ranch house on the property. The dwelling was built circa 1996 and has 2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, two 220V window units (heat and A/C), and one 110V window unit (A/C only). The house will come furnished with a washer and dryer, refrigerator, beds, couches, tables, television, etc. A front and back porch serve as perfect venues to watch the glorious Lee county sunrises and sunsets. Behind the house stands a ~192 SF shed with a covered entry and double door loading dock.
The perimeter of the property is entirely fenced with barbed wire. The fence along the eastern boundary (abutting CR 326) was put in during the summer of 2018 while the fence along the northern boundary is brand new (winter of 2019). The property is cross fenced and is currently leased for grazing and hay production. In the central portion of the property lies a ~48.5-acre field (coastal Bermuda) that the owners once used to grow peanuts, but now is used for hay production (production of 100-150 round bales per year). In the northern portion of the property lies a ~46-acre field that the rancher uses for grazing. Working corrals are situated on the eastern part of the property by CR 326.
Two ponds dot the property and provide ample water for wildlife, livestock, and irrigation purposes. The ~3.75-acre pond to the southwest of the property is fed by three wells and is stocked with bass and grass carp, while the ~1.6-acre tank to the northeast of the property is fed by surface runoff. An irrigation shed stands to the east of the larger pond and houses a large irrigation hose wheel and diesel engine.
LAND PROFILE Wildlife on the farm includes: whitetail deer, fallow deer, coyote, and jackrabbits. The farm is situated in a region that receives an average rainfall of 36.65” per year. Elevation on the property varies from 407 ft. to 482 ft. above sea level. Approximately 62 acres of Gasil loamy fine sand with 1-5% slopes dot the northwestern portion of the property, which is suitable for intense grazing and moderate cultivation. The northeastern part of the property consists of ~13.2 acres of Crockett fine sandy loam with 1-5% slopes while the central part of the property consists of Rader and Spiller fine sandy loam soils with 1-5% slopes.
