Located just north of the small town of Mingus, Texas lies JS Ranch. This picturesque property has over a mile of Rocky Creek as it connects with Palo Pinto Creek along the southern border. The elevated and rolling terrain along the creeks create unique habitats and views amongst the monstrous pecans and post oaks into the bottom country.  JS Ranch is a true wildlife mecca (game pics coming soon). The only tamed portions of this land are the small hay pastures and coastal fields that highlight the beauty of the mature pecan groves. This acreage comes with a well-built home that is characteristically "Texas" with white stone exterior, multiple covered porches and a metal roof all situated next to a two-acre pond. The house is very well kept and offers a split bedroom arrangement with two guest rooms and a master suite set aside with a private, covered patio overlooking lush fields and huge live-oaks. Vaulted ceilings combined with oversized windows, within the main open-concept living area and owner's quarters, add to the relaxing atmosphere creating an open, airy feel in this Hill Country home.   JS Ranch is an outstanding recreational property located only an hour west of Fort Worth with excellent access to I-20 (4.5 miles).

Broker's Comments -- This property has multiple WOW factors.  Unique niche environments are created when creeks converge, and this property is loaded with these special habitats. Rocky Creek runs along multiple elevation changes (up to 40 feet) and then the creek splits and actually converges with Palo Pinto Creek twice.  This land is CLEAN.  It was bought clean and has been kept clean for over 20 years.  The house is well-built and has been maintained very well. The house is located in the 100 year flood plain, but has not ever been close to the water even with the recent flooding over the past couple years.  Contact Broker for more details on Obtaining Flood Insurance.
