The Dale Ranch is a high-fenced ranch that is comprised of 2,010 acres in Parker, Wise and Jack Counties. It is a turnkey first-class ranch located just outside of Fort Worth and Weatherford. It includes deer breeding pens, selective brush clearings, food plots, and an extensive deer management program with 15 years of breeding genetics and culling to produce a top quality deer herd. The Ranch currently has a MLDP (Managed Lands Deer Permit) from the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department. Surveys are performed annually to insure the proper buck to doe ratio. The sandy loam soils produce an excellent habitat for such an operation. Beautiful hardwoods are present throughout the ranch along with an array of top native grasses and plants. The abundance of native grasses include little and big bluestem along with many other varieties all conducive to a productive cattle ranch as well. Some clearing has been done for food plots and 125 acres of coastal Bermuda fields.
The Dale Ranch has a 35 acre lake, estimated to 40’ deep. It is stocked with bass and catfish. There are also 13 tanks/ponds scattered throughout the ranch. There are 9 water wells on the property. Three of the wells have pumps and the other wells are capped for future use. There is great ground water in the area and the ranch is located in the Upper Trinity Ground Water District. In addition to an abundant supply of water wells, they have public utility cooperative water flowing to the warehouse and home as another source.
A magnificent stone home sits majestically in view of the lake and coastal field. The home is 4,800 SF with 4BR and 6BA, along with an attached 1,494 SF 4-car garage. All bedrooms/baths are on the ground level with a game room, wet bar and full bath on the second floor. The master bedroom and bath are spacious and beautifully finished with an extra oversized closet. The kitchen has top of the line appliances (Viking stove, Bosch dishwasher, Subzero refrigerator/freezer), a trash compactor, with travertine tile countertops.
The home was built on a hill to overlook an infinity pool and the 35 acre lake. This setting provides the hard to find peace and tranquility of watching deer and turkey in their natural habitat along with the occasional flock of ducks landing on the lake. The home also has a back-up 80 KW generator should it be needed.
The warehouse is 3,200 SF, built in 2001. It includes a 2BR/2BA apartment with a full kitchen. Another half-bath is located in the warehouse along with several walk-in coolers, a smoke house and storage.
There are 11 first-class deer pens previously used for the deer breeding operation with feed and water troughs situated on 15 acres. The entire ranch is high-fenced with an estimated 10 miles of fencing that was built 2 feet inside the property line.
