River Bend Ranch on Lake Granbury offers the perfect blend of a paramount part of the Brazos River & nearby Lake Granbury. This 335+/- acre property is situated on the Brazos River, around the corner from Lake Granbury & 45 minutes west of Fort Worth near Tin Top, TX. Historic downtown Granbury is a scenic 20 minute boat ride from your private dock. This highly improved land has been meticulously maintained and is a must see. The blend of wooded terrain, pasture land & direct water frontage provides an abundance of recreational activities as well as peaceful tranquility. The custom built main residence overlooks a magnificent pecan orchard & a manicured lawn & offers luxurious accommodations. The entire perimeter of the ranch is fenced along with interior cross fencing & managed pastures that hold numerous deer & turkeys. This unique property was created with extreme attention to detail & is a rare find so close to DFW. This is truly a ranch & lake house for all seasons.

Habitat & Topography:
The property offers a variety of mixed use habitat within the Cross Timbers Ecoregion. Most of the ranch is a blend between native grass pastures & open pecan orchards with nearly ¾ mile of Brazos River frontage. Heavily wooded areas with trees & brush indigenous to this area offer miles of intertwined riding trails. Extensive improvements have been made to the environment around the residence & in other areas of the ranch. The property primarily consists of sandy loam soils, with some clay loam as well. The main body of the ranch has approximately 30+/- Ft in elevation changes down to the lake. The property has a good blend of cleared pasture for grazing as well as heavily wooded trail areas, which are most desirable in this geographical region for scenic views, hunting & trail riding. For the new owner there are ample spaces & opportunities to expand viewing & camping spots on the river, or additional improvements.

Wildlife, Hunting:
Take a drive from the main house down the all-weather road to the lake & you will see 20 plus whitetail deer on most days. This ranch has been lightly hunted over the past 20 years & the deer are plentiful, as well as Rio Grande Turkey & waterfowl on the duck ponds. Limited pigs as well as other varmints are found within the ranch.

Water, Fishing:
The ranch has superior surface water. It has thousands of feet of easily accessible lake Granbury/Brazos River frontage. There are hundreds of yards of beaches & numerous swimming holes scattered along the Brazos, & a large boat dock with lifts. Two electric water wells are located on the ranch. One large pond as well as a few other smaller duck ponds also exist on the property.
