The indelible spirit of the visionary, frontier-tough, and independent rancher is embedded in the soil of properties like these. With access to power in the area, a paved highway, and no restrictions to hold you back, you have all the tools to carve out whatever life you choose. This piece of land reaffirms the meaning behind the “Land of the Free”.
PROPERTY: This 7 acre square-shaped piece offers 491 feet on paved School House Rd outside Gordon, Texas. Run some animals, grow a little food - don't confine yourself to any preconceived notions about what this land can do for you, because there are NO Restrictions. It lies just about 15 minutes from the small triplet towns of Strawn, Mingus, and Gordon, 20 minutes from “The Great Lake of Texas,” and 80 minutes (inside the Goldilocks Zone - not to close, not too far away) from the massive Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. There are no structures on site, so you can build your micro-ranch exactly how you always dreamt it.
Cheapest Micro-Ranch Property In Palo Pinto County (5-10 Acres).
You're in luck if you love small towns (and who doesn't?) because you'll find three of them lying just about 5 minutes apart from each other along the Hwy 108/193 east-west corridor, and about 15 minutes due south of this property. Strawn... Mingus... Gordon... take your pick. Strawn offers a typical small-town mix of goods and services, like a Post Office, market, a few restaurants, and a Dollar General. You'll find similar options in Mingus and Gordon. Hunters flock from hundreds of miles around to visit the Greystone Castle Sporting Club in Mingus, a 5-star rated and 6,000 acre hunting ranch and resort offering some of the best trophy hunting and fishing in the United States.
Nestled in the foothills of the Palo Pinto Mountains is the beautiful Possum Kingdom Lake (aka “The Great Lake of Texas”), which is only a 20 minute drive north from here. This Texas gem nestled in rolling hills, boasts more than 18,000 acres of clear water and magnificent cliffs. One of the state's best kept secrets hosts several first-class restaurants, resorts, marinas and some of the finest golf courses in Texas. Cycling and hiking opportunities also abound.
The Palo Pinto Mountains State Park is the newest state park in Texas and located just a half hour to the southwest. One of the great features of the park is Palo Pinto Creek, which runs along the northern edge of the park, and while it can be a raging torrent at times, it is a very scenic creek, with some good pools along it, good for swimming or fishing. Tucker Lake is the centerpiece, a 90-acre blue expanse that serves as the water supply for the park's gateway city of Strawn.
Palo Pinto Creek Reservoir is a 2400-Acre, 50-foot deep lake about a half hour away to the southeast and it provides solid fishing opportunities, featuring largemouth bass, catfish, and crappie.
The famous art culture of west Texas is clearly evident in the city of Breckenridge, which is only a half hour away to the west and it's also where you'll find the nearest Walmart and other big box stores. Breckenridge is known as the Mural Capital of Texas and is home to the Breckenridge Fine Arts Center. Hubbard Creek Lake is a huge natural attraction and probably the best fishing lake in this area. When the reservoir is full, it is known for excellent white crappie and white bass. It's also a popular choice for largemouth bass anglers, especially tournament anglers. Catfishing is often underrated: the lake supports good populations of catfish, especially blue catfish.
As you can tell, this property is closely surrounded by beautiful parks, lakes, and game in each direction, making this a perfect homesite for any west Texas sports and outdoorsman.
