A really pretty property that has recently had a tremendous level of clean up and upgrading, this deed-called 23.831 acres makes an ideal setting for a country residence or weekend retreat. Located only 1 mile north of the Center Loop 500 on FM 699, this land has an established hay meadow and about a thousand feet of FM road frontage. The proximity of Center provides all the basic needs, including a delightful array of restaurants, farm & ranch supply outlets, and general shopping.

This attractive property has fencing on most of three sides, a small pond in the woods, and some trees along the small creek. The options for this land are wide open, giving a buyer a wide range of locations on which to place a house, plant trees and/or gardens, or just keep the pastures open for either grazing or continued hay production. The FM road frontage is all cleaned off and is ready for a new fence or remain just an open meadow. Utilities at the FM road include natural gas, electricity, telephone, and community water.

The potential for subdividing this land is readily apparent given the gentle terrain and FM 699 road frontage.

The very fine sandy loam soils on this property offer versatility for growing trees, gardens or providing pastures for hay or grazing. The gentle slopes leading down to the central branch offers excellent drainage for this site.

All provided mapping is based on CAD, GIS aerial photo interpretation using deed call information, and ground checks of fences and assumed corner and line markers.
