About This Property
Jeff Davis County
13 miles west of Fort Davis, Texas and 3 miles north of Point of Rocks within the scenic Highway 166 Loop. End of the road privacy with deeded access.
Once part of the much larger ranch that still surrounds it this property offers a quiet existence among the native spruce, pine, madrone and oak trees only to be shared by the many species of wildlife right outside the backdoor. There are wonderful views of the surrounding mountain ranges with abundant mule deer, whitetail deer, quail, dove, javelina and aoudad sheep.
This property has been meticulously groomed, boulders and undesirable brush removed, low hanging tree branches trimmed and paths created for walking, riding or UTV. A great picnic area sits among the oak trees toward the back of the property with picnic tables, benches and hammocks and a seasonal creek with a seep spring runs through the length of the property. Elevation ranges between 5,600 and 6,000 feet.
It is believed that the majority of this property is mineral classified with the rest mineral owned with executive rights subject only to a small non-participating royalty interest.
This property features an approximately 3,000 square foot, rock and stucco home with a metal roof, screened in porch and wrap around deck. The home has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, den, kitchen and a magnificent great room with post beams, stained concrete floor, cement top bar, wood burning rock fireplace and wood stove. Glass doors and windows from the great room overlook the valley to the east. The kitchen features a gas stove, double door refrigerator and tiled cabinet tops. An adjacent basement can be pantry storage or is perfectly suited for a wine cellar.
Joining the kitchen is the den with a fireplace which leads to the rock porch on the south side of the home and then to the screened in porch to enjoy the cool mountain air and the wildlife at your breakfast table or in your hammock. The screened porch can be closed off to the rest of the home by hinged windows for insulation. There is a laundry room at the back of the house. The exterior of the home is landscaped with a swimming hole, water fountain, lilac and apricot, peach and pecan trees.
There is a covered carport with a shop and a Class A motor home port with 30 amp service, sewer and water hookups, a metal barn with roll up doors on each end. These are all like new improvements and very well maintained. There is an additional older barn on the property away from the house.
This property has two wells, one electric and one solar powered, with additional storage.
Some reasonable restrictions apply to the property.
