Property Description: The Germany Creek Ranch is a picturesque example of how the Cross Timbers Eco region meets the iconic Texas Hill Country. With breathtaking views throughout the ranch and productive bottomland around the creek, this property is well suited for a variety of uses. A beautifully designed modern Texas home sits in the perfect location with endless views that go on for miles. Location: The property is located approximately 1 hour from Fort Worth, and 90 minutes from Dallas, just west of the town of Morgan Mill and just a few miles north of Stephenville, TX in the heart of Erath County. Road/Frontage Access: The ranch is located on the north side of County Road 163 and has just over 1,800 feet of frontage. The property is accessed from this road. Land: Germany Creek Ranch features some of the most pristine land in the area. The land has been carefully manicured and sculpted to create extremely productive hay pastures while maintaining excellent habitat for wildlife around the pastures and along the banks of the creek. Of the total acreage, approximately 20 +/- AC are currently in hay production. In addition to the excellent pastureland, there are incredible stands of oak trees that surround the main residence, the southern pastureland, and all the way to the main residence along the entry way. Water: The main water feature on the property is approximately 3,700 feet of both sides of the historic Germany Creek. There are multiple locations on this stretch of the creek that hold water all year long. This is a very substantial creek for the area, and eventually feeds the North Paluxy River a few miles down the creek. In addition to the creek, there are two stock ponds and a water well that services the improvements. Terrain/Topography: The elevation on the ranch ranges from approximately 1,291 +/- feet above sea level at the highest point in the northeast quadrant of the ranch, to 1,090 feet above sea level near the banks of Germany creek. The ranch features breathtaking hill country views at the high points and fertile soil in the bottomlands near the creek. It is very difficult to find this much change in terrain and topography on a ranch this size. Soil types on the ranch include Altoga-Lewisville-Daffau complex, Venus loam, Lewisville clay loam, and Prves-Dugout-Maloterre complex. Improvements: Sitting in a picturesque meadow with views of the hilly countryside in all directions, the custom-built main residence is truly one of a kind. Designed by Michael Bennett, of Bennett Benner Partners of Fort Worth, the residence is a perfect example of how to pair contemporary lines and elegant appointments with easy hill country living and style. The home is approximately 4,782 SF of living area inside, with another 800 SF of outdoor living area and porches, as well as nearly 750 SF of attached garage and storage space. Featuring 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a half bath, study, bar area, wine room, living area and dining room, 2 fireplaces, and a chef’s kitchen appointed with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances all of which are built in and several are paneled. All of the cabinetry and panels in the kitchen are alder. Just off the kitchen lies an inviting covered outdoor patio with built in grill and cooking station perfect for outdoor gatherings. A very welcoming living room and dining room lie on the other side of the kitchen with an abundance of natural light coming in from the modern clerestory windows. This space feels perfect for both entertaining guests or sitting next to the fire with a warm drink and a good book. Stained concrete floors run through the home, while red cedar paneled walls line the hallways going from room to room where limestone walls bring all of the elements together perfectly. Much of the materials in the construction were sourced locally.
