Granny's River Ranch is a raw tract of ranching land with highly-desirable recreational characteristics.  California Creek enters the acreage from the north and meanders thru the western boundary until heading south and connecting to the Brazos River. Deer Head Bluff sits in the middle of the property providing prominent views and build-sites. Views extend for miles in all directions on the plateau created by Deer Head Bluff. This area is ideal for a potential home or headquarters overlooking Johnson's Bottom, the only named bottom in Young County on the Brazos River. ATV roads traverse the dense cover, accessing the many desirable characteristics. Split by the bluff, the northern portion consists of thick mesquites with a good mix of oaks and elms, while fertile soils in the southern river bottomland explode with diversity: post oak, pecan, cottonwood, elm,  green ash, Texas ash, American elm, and more. This acreage is complete with electricity meters, a water meter, a fenced camp with 10+ RV hookups, and a storm shelter. Granny's River Ranch sits just five miles west of Newcastle, Texas, on the western side of Young County, with paved frontage and a county road providing access to the top of the bluff. An owner could easily create an exceptional trophy ranch with this raw canvas of extraordinary characteristics.

Broker's Comments -- Grannie's River Ranch provides the best 360-degree hilltop build-sites available in Young County.  Deer Head Bluff adds exceptional character that is hard to duplicate. California Creek holds water most of the year and creates diversity throughout the ranch as it runs into the Brazos River. Ranch roads are rough but good enough to traverse the land and get to the Brazos. Fenced river access has an ATV path to the water, although the frontage has "beach-front" river access opportunities with a bit of clearing.  Grannie's River Ranch is an excellent hunting property with high-end land characteristics.
