37.9 ACRES NORTH PARCEL SHELBY COUNTY, TEXAS

Posted on: January 30th, 2024

This land is what a lot of people have been looking for over the past few years. It is forested land with county road access and electric power on site; a half hour or less from medical care and shopping; quiet rural area with few scattered neighbors; gentle but interesting terrain with flat areas, ridges and a live creek on one boundary; plenty of level ground to build on; all with a pretty native forest that is producing hardwood and pine timber primarily on uplands.

This land would be excellent for a weekend place, or for a home with built-in recreation in the backyard. The wildlife habitat is in good condition given the native mixed-species forest and Brady Creek. Known locally as the Sand Hills area, the well-drained sandy soils support species such as American holly, beech, post oak, red and Florida maple and basswood. The creeks are sandy-bottomed and Brady Creek is a good-sized perennial stream along the proposed southern boundary. The understory is fairly open and it is easy to traverse this land on foot.

The forest has been carefully managed since 1957, with thinning harvests being done with an eye to long term management, most being selectively marked by a professional forester. The forest is a mix of scattered large, high-quality pine sawtimber, moderate numbers of smaller-sized pine and hardwood trees and a large component of young pine and hardwood.

The combination of native species such as white oak, cherrybark red oak, water oak, black oak, loblolly pine and sweetgum provide multiple forest management opportunities, current cash flow potential and future timber growth prospects. The well-drained sandy loam creek bottom soils along Brady Creek comprise 28% of this parcel, and are highly productive sites for growing timber. The rest of the property is upland sandy loams that are also good soils for forest growth.

The quality and quantity of young white oak and red oak trees on this property really caught this foresters eye given what hardwood sawtimber markets have done on the past few decades, favoring the better-quality hardwoods could be a reasonable long-term management strategy for this land.

The Property being offered is the portion of a 76.978-acre tract located north of Brady Creek, which will make up most of its southern boundary. The acreage of this to-be-surveyed Northern Parcel has been estimated at about 37.9 acres, but will require a new survey to determine the exact acreage. Prospective buyers should be aware that the final acreage could vary beyond 10% of the estimate. The approximately 39 acres laying south of Brady Creek is also being offered for sale separately. If both parcels are still available, the sellers would consider a consolidated offer.

Please note the mapping provided in the downloadable documents section, as well as the original deed to the parent 76.978-acre tract. The eastern boundary is County Road 1036; the western boundary is an old up-and-down fence and partially blazed line through the woods; the northern boundary appears to follow an old fence along the powerline but not touching County Road 1011, as far as can be determined. About 1,400 feet of County Road 1036 is the eastern boundary, running from the intersection of CR 1036 and CR 1011 south to Brady Creek at the concrete-and-steel bridge.

The barnyard area of the old original farmstead dating from the 1830s is evidenced by the old barn located in the northern section. The old log house associated with this farmstead is across the county road on a separate property. The barn is not habitable and prospective buyers are cautioned not to enter the barn. It has not been assessed with any value, but it is an interesting historical artifact. There were not any water wells observed on this property, but due caution would be advised around barn area and between it and the county road.

This property is located a short drive from supplies, shopping and health care in Center. The land is about four miles off of Highway 96 six miles south of Center, with all but the last quarter-mile of the county roads being oil-topped.
This property is currently under Ag/Timber Valuation on the taxes. Land taxes for the entire 76.978-acre parent tract using the Shelby Appraisal District 2023 Tax records are shown as $249.51 with timber/ag exemptions. Land may be subject to agricultural or other valuations that may be subject to roll back taxes if the use of the land is changed or a new application for such valuation is not tendered to the appropriate appraisal district by the purchaser. Land use valuation status is tied to the landowner, not to the land. Seller nor TerraStone Land Company can guarantee qualification for any special use valuations. A purchaser will be responsible to verify tax status, rollback provisions, and/or apply for Ag/Timber Valuation at the County Appraisal District.

39 ACRES SOUTH PARCEL SHELBY COUNTY, TEXAS

Posted on: January 30th, 2024

This is an attractive property with a nice bottomland on a perennial creek and uplands in its southern area. This land would be excellent for a weekend place, a hunting camp or just for growing timber. It has excellent county road access; is a half hour or less from medical care and shopping; located in a quiet rural area with few scattered neighbors; and has highly productive well-drained bottomland soils supporting a native pine and hardwood forest.

Known locally as the Sand Hills area, the well-drained sandy soils support species such as American holly, beech, post oak, red and Florida maple and basswood. The creeks are sandy-bottomed, with a fair-sized wet weather creek running south to north from the south boundary to Brady Creek, which is a good-sized perennial stream along the proposed northern boundary. The understory is fairly open and it is easy to traverse this land on foot. The wildlife habitat is in good condition given the native mixed-species forest and Brady Creek.

The forest has been carefully managed since 1957, with thinning harvests being done with an eye to long term management, most being selectively marked by a professional forester. The forest is dominated by scattered patches of large, high-quality pine sawtimber, moderate numbers of smaller-sized pine and hardwood trees and a decent component of young pine and hardwood. There are several dense patches of larger pine sawlogs that have heavy volumes per acre.

The combination of native species such as white oak, cherrybark red oak, water oak, black oak, loblolly pine and sweetgum provide multiple forest management opportunities, current cash flow potential and future timber growth prospects. The well-drained sandy loam creek bottom soils along Brady Creek comprise 55% of this parcel, and are highly productive sites for growing timber. The rest of the property is upland sandy loams that are also good soils for forest growth.
