Dixon Creek Ranch | Tract 5

Decatur, Cooke County, Texas


21.46 Arces

This 21.467 +/- acre tract of land is located about 30 minutes north of Decatur and 20 minutes east of Forestburg, in the SW corner of Cooke County, Texas. It has open grass land and a beautiful wooded creek bottom. Dixon Creek forms the south border.

The property has a barbed wire fence running along most of the west boundary down to the creek. You enter the tract from CR 334 on the north side, which is a gravel-based county maintained road. The road dead ends just past this tract, so you have no through traffic. From FM 455, which is the main corridor between Montague and Sanger, you take just a 10 minute drive down a couple of county roads to get to the property.

The trees here are fantastic! Huge live oak, post oak and white oak create the bulk of the forest canopy, with hickory and other vegetation growing underneath. The land has a total of 70 ft of elevation change across it, from the road to the creek. About halfway down into the woods, a dramatic 40 ft bluff ridge creates steep topography change. The tract has a newly built road to take you through it to this point. The creek can be accessed by driving down the east line. The land is perfect for hiking and to escape the city sounds. You can hunt whitetails or wild pigs too.

Dixon Creek has large limestone shale rocks and is lined by tall trees. It is fed by natural springs above the tree line, but in the summer heat these springs (and the creek) can go underground. After a normal rain it will run water, and after strong rains, it will run like a Colorado trout stream! A natural draw to the area's wildlife, Dixon Creek has a natural beauty that is hard to find in this area. An additional creek drainage crosses the property before the border reached Dixon Creek, which is fed by springs just to the west of the tract.

LIST PRICE: $8,500/acre | $182,410 total

*Any owned minerals will be reserved by Seller. There is not any oil or gas production on the property. All gravel rights convey with the sale. At one time the larger Dixon Creek Ranch (some 300+ acres) had a rock quarry on it, but this quarry has been closed for five years. This particular tract didn't have a quarry on it, but there were some piles of flume gravel that the owner had bulldozed to ground level. Vegetation has already started growing back on this area.
