BACKGROUND INFORMATION: This property has always been used for ranching, hunting and recreation.

Terrain elevations vary from 1,320 to 1,520 feet above sea level. There is one particular plateaued mountain-top located entirely within the property boundary lines that covers approximately 25 acres. This area would be an outstanding location for a house if you happen to like high elevation building sites. Or if you prefer lower elevations there are several excellent valley location building sites. There is a superb tree cover comprised of liveoak, Spanish oak, elm, hackberry, persimmon and cedar. All the essential ingredients are in place to facilitate building an upscale country estate (i.e. easy access, electricity, telephone, and good underground water.
