Overview/Summary: The Prairie Lakes Ranch is a showcase of abundant surface water (approximately 48 acres collectively in 5 bodies of water), rolling hills, woods, near end of the road privacy, and offers excellent proximity to Dallas, Texas. Once part of a sand and gravel mining operation, this ~173 acre property is representative of the outstanding water features often created as part of the sand and gravel mining process. Whether you’re looking to create that private retreat in the country or just the spot to build your permanent residence, Prairie Lakes Ranch offers you the opportunity to do either and do it set amongst a plethora of potential trophy bass lakes and a waterfowl hunters paradise. Location: Located in southwestern Kaufman County approximately 13 miles west of Kemp and 16.5 miles southwest of Kaufman, the property is just under an hour from downtown Dallas, and is easily accessed by gated entries along Kaufman County Road No. 4074. Lakes: Through the sand and gravel mining operation multiple quarry lakes were created on the property that collectively account for a total of approximately 48 acres of surface water, and measure ~ 28.85 acres, 11.93 acres, 2.70 acres, 2.67 acres, 1.37 acres, and 0.45 acres in size respectively. The water color and clarity are ideal, and the fisheries appear to be extremely healthy with plenty of bass, crappie, catfish, gar and baitfish. Whether it’s from a bass boat, kayak, canoe, or even the bank, the fishing is great and with some management it is believed that these lakes have the potential to produce some really consistent trophy largemouth bass. Note: While care and consideration have been taken in collecting and compiling this information, all surface acreage measurements and depths should be considered approximate, and are not warranted by Hortenstine Ranch Company. Terrain: The rolling landscape through the northern and eastern parts of the property provide approximately 75’ of elevation change and big scenic views to the south and southwest across the lakes and lower elevated portions of the property and surrounding area.

Hunting and Wildlife: The property has not been regularly hunted in years and is frequented by native game animals such as whitetail deer, hogs, and varmints, and is a seasonal stop for a wide variety of waterfowl. Roads and Fences: The north boundary fronts along Kaufman County Road No. 4074 for a total of ~1,135 feet with two gated ranch entrance points. The interior road system primarily consists of unimproved pasture roads and trails that wind through the property and around the lakes providing good access. Perimeter and cross fences range in condition from good to poor, with a portion of the south west property boundary that fronts along the east side of Cottonwood Creek currently unfenced. Minerals: Percentage of seller owned minerals is unknown. Seller may agree to convey a portion of the mineral estate, if any owned, with an acceptable offer. Buyer may have a mineral ownership report conducted at Buyer's expense. Easements: There are no pipeline, large transmission line, or neighboring land owner access easements encumbering the property.
