Situated in southeast Shackelford County, just a stone's throw away from the quaint community of Moran, lies the 160-acre Cottle Ranch. This cherished property has been lovingly held by the same dedicated family for generations and is steeped in rich family heritage. From the moment you pass through the front gate, the profound care and devotion poured into this ranch to create a true sense of home is unmistakable.


Tucked away at the end of the inviting gravel drive and cocooned by large crepe myrtles, mulberry, and juniper trees that provide both privacy and cooling shade rests the Cottle family ranch home. Boasting a generous 2,440 square feet, this cozy home features a spacious master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, two additional bedrooms just across the hall, and a full bathroom. The seamless flow of the living room, dining area, and kitchen leads to a sizable mudroom with a washer and dryer. Just beyond the mudroom awaits a roomy four-car garage, offering the perfect canvas for expanding the home or ample space for parking all your ATVs and vehicles. Adjacent to the garage lies a substantial pole barn with four bays, accompanied by a fully enclosed barn to safeguard equipment and tools from the unpredictable elements of nature. Flanking the barn are four supplementary buildings for storing the essential tools to maintain the property. A fence has been erected to deter cattle from grazing within the perimeter of the homestead to ensure a serene environment.


Venturing beyond the Cottle homestead and into the pasture, you will discover approximately two and a half miles of roads and trails meandering through the ranch's landscape. Encompassed by mature mesquite and scattered oaks, this property boasts a large draw just below the ridge line on its southern border, hosting a system of wildlife trails. A substantial pond graces the rear of the property, complemented by a smaller pond located just in front of the home, providing essential water for the cattle and local game. Cottle Ranch lacks internal cross fences, featuring two miles of well-maintained boundary fencing. Most roads are tended to by the oil company accessing the property from the east. Nestled within the center of the ranch lie three pump units, accompanied by a set of tank batteries just inside the southern gate. Furthermore, the owner can convey their mineral rights with a compelling offer.


AGENT COMMENTS: The Cottle Ranch offers a serene privacy in a small town with the opportunity to manage a few cattle. With approximately eight acres of native grass surrounding the home, this property is tailor-made for a roping arena or horse training facility. Not just limited to ranching, this property also boasts exceptional deer, hog, and dove hunting prospects. Even more, there's a local rancher managing the cattle and open to staying on for added income.
