Summary: Welcome to Rock Away Ranch, a very unique one of one type recreational ranch property that features highly sought after Cowhouse Creek frontage, diverse terrain, excellent topography, big views, abundant wildlife, and an absolutely spectacular ranch headquarters located creek side in a serene parklike setting. Location: Located where the Cross Timbers Region converges with the Texas Hill Country, Rock Away Ranch is found in southern Hamilton County, approximately 10.5 miles south of Hamilton, Texas, an easy 1 hour 50 minutes southwest of Fort Worth, 2 hours 15 minutes southwest of Dallas, 2 hours north of Austin, and just under 3 hours north of San Antonio. Physical Address: 9180 FM 1241, Hamilton, TX 76531 Rock Away Ranch Headquarters: Main House - Perched just above Cowhouse Creek, the ranch headquarters at Rock Away offers a resort-style experience for both owner and guest where no detail has been overlooked or expense spared in creating this wonderful family and friend’s destination and owner’s private escape to the country. This unique compound features a spacious 2,520 sf 2/2 owner’s home with 760 sf of covered porches overlooking the creek, where you’ll be drawn to simply sit back, enjoy the sound of the rippling waters below, and be encompassed by the beauty and sounds of nature. Just inside you’ll find contemporary elegance and every detail accounted for as the owners thoughtfully created this one of a kind getaway. The home is bright and inviting, with a spacious living and sitting area flanked by a wonderfully designed kitchen with large island, all stainless-steel appliances, gas range, quartz countertops, and custom cabinets. Off the kitchen you’ll find a wonderful dining area where large picture windows and double sliding glass doors allow the room to fill with natural light. In the early evening, this also happens to be just the spot to catch the sun as it fades gently into the horizon and puts on a show. Bedrooms include a nicely sized master and en suite with his & her vanities, shower, and walk-in closets, and an equally well-appointed guest bedroom and en suite. A large utility/mudroom caps off this retreat to the country with more custom cabinetry and storage. Attached here, you’ll also find a heated/cooled “breezeway” area for pets, as well as a 2 car garage. The home was originally constructed in 2004, and recently (2019-2020) underwent a complete remodel. Creekhouse - Just steps away you’ll find the centerpiece of the headquarters, the 900 sf Creekhouse. “Brilliant”, really may be the best way to describe this structure. Built in 2018, this space was designed by the owners with family and guest gathering, comfort, and elegance all in mind. Offering a spacious living area and fully equipped kitchen with all stainless-steel appliances, gas range, honed black granite countertops and large bar-top island, and of course a full bath, the Creekhouse is like the ranch clubhouse or 19th hole, where you can slip off your shoes, kick back and watch the ballgame, enjoy a family dinner, or be utilized as the central hub for entertaining. Just outside you’ll find 350 sf of patio space and a nearby firepit. Water is provided to the Creekhouse by its very own dedicated water well. This Trinity Aquifer well was drilled in 2018 at a depth of 435’ and volume tested at 20-25 gpm at the time of installation. Bunkhouse - For additional lodging the headquarters also offers a comfy 480 sf bunkhouse with custom designed double bunkbeds and a full bathroom. Each of the larger bottom bunks are equipped with their very own phone, tablet, or gaming device charging station and reading lights. Water for both the main home and bunkhouse is provided by the local rural water supply company with water meter in place. Barn - Also at the headquarters, you’ll find a 1,280 sf barn on concrete with 660 sf being an enclosed shop with rollup door. Perfect for equipment and atv/utv storage. (Note: All square footages and construction dates are correct to the best of our knowledge, but should be considered approximate.) Cowhouse Creek Frontage and Additional Water Features: Rock Away provides an impressive amount of easily accessible Cowhouse Creek frontage with just under a mile total, of which approximately 3,000’ provides frontage and use of both sides as the Cowhouse winds its way through the east part of the ranch. The Cowhouse is a picturesque clear water, rock bottom creek that is locally thought of more like a river than creek, and will run year-round in normal rainfall years and typically maintain long stretches of water during drier conditions. The riparian areas that buffer the creek range from heavily wooded and brush covered providing prime wildlife habitat, to immaculate and pristinely maintained where you can enjoy a morning creek side walk or run. The headwaters of the Cowhouse begin one county over to the west in the hills of northeastern Mills County, then the creek winds its way to the southeast through Hamilton and Coryell County before reaching its terminus into Lake Belton in northern Bell County. Additional water features include ~960’ of Henderson Branch frontage, 4 stock ponds, and multiple wet weather draws and drainages. The ranch offers reliable domestic use water sources with two private water wells as well as rural water service provided by Multi-County Water Supply. Terrain: The natural lay of the land creates ~175’ of wonderful elevation change and scenic views of the ranch and surrounding country side, with everchanging topography and diverse terrain which ranges from tillable creek/river bottom land and deep hardwood and brush covered draws, to high rocky ridgelines, outcroppings, points, and plateaus. Tree cover and vegetation include live oak, bur oak, post oak, elm, sycamore, cottonwood, hackberry, cedar, mesquite, bumelia, elbowbush, sumac, green briar, sand plum, and strong native grass pastures. Approximately 100 acres of fertile creek bottom land is separated by cross fencing and Cowhouse Creek, providing 5 separate fields for hay and grain production. These fields are currently leased to and farmed by a local tenant, helping maintain the manicured look and feel of the property. Wildlife and Hunting: The ranch is setup with numerous quality blinds and feeders in place, and has only been lightly hunted in recent years. The property and area are home to an abundance of native wildlife including whitetail deer, Rio Grande turkey, dove, the occasional quail, hog, coyote, fox, and bobcat. A variety of songbirds and squirrels are regular visitors near the headquarters. Roads and Fences: Primary access to the ranch is provided at a gated entrance on FM Highway No. 1241 where the property fronts for ~2,380’. There’s also county road frontage with 408’ along Hamilton County Road No. 415 on the north end of the ranch between FM 1241 and the Cowhouse Creek crossing, and 323’ of Hamilton County Road No. 423 frontage along the southeast part of the ranch. An extensive network of improved all-weather ranch roads, unimproved pasture roads, and trails provide excellent travel throughout the property. The perimeter is all low fenced and in good condition to hold and turn livestock. There is some cross fencing in place and a set of working pens are centrally located within the ranch. Ranch Managers Home and Barns: Near the heart of and located on one of the higher elevated portions of the ranch is the 1,450 sf ranch foreman’s home. This home is located within a fenced and well-maintained area that encompasses approximately 3 acres where you’ll also find a ~2,800 sf barn that provides a 1,200 sf game processing room on one end and 1,600 sf used for equipment/implement storage on the other end. There’s also a rustic rock sided ~2,500 sf barn here that’s connected to the aforementioned working pens. Utilities: Electric utility service is provided by Hamilton County Electrical Cooperative and rural water service by Multi-County Water Supply. Nextlink provides internet service to the ranch with a private receiver tower on property. Easements: Additional access and a separate point of entry for accessing the ranch foreman’s home is provided by a 30’ wide deeded easement that only serves the Rock Away Ranch. The easement road runs west from Hamilton County Road No. 423, approximately 915’ along an all-weather gravel road to a gated entrance and cattle guard located near the most easterly southeast corner of the ranch. While this easement is utilized as the ranch foreman’s primary means of access, in the event the interior ranch crossing of the Cowhouse becomes impassible due to high water, this easement also provides a backup source of entry for the owner to always be able to access all parts of the property. There are no large electric transmission line or pipeline easements encumbering the ranch. Property Taxes: The property is ag-exempt and property taxes for 2023 are anticipated to be approximately $9,250. Airport: Nearest public airport is Hamilton Municipal Airport just south of Hamilton, Texas, which provides an asphalt runway measuring ~5,012’ in length and averages ~89 aircraft per week.

$2,995,000  •  349 acres
Description: Gholson Creek Ranch is a superbly maintained 349 +/- acre property that is ready for its next steward. The land has been meticulously cared for and the native beauty of the Lampasas Cut Plain creates a wonderful canvas for a primary homestead or recreational retreat. Conveniently located near Hamilton, TX within the renowned Edwards Plateau of Central Texas. Gholson Creek winds through the property and below the stunning custom-built home. Watch your cattle graze the native grasses while taking in a sunrise from the open views inside the home, or wrap-around porch. Enjoy one of the endless leisure activities the ranch has to offer such as fishing, hunting, horseback riding, hiking, and so much more. Location: Gholson Creek Ranch is centrally located north of Austin, west of Waco, and southwest of the Fort Worth - Dallas Metroplex. The Property is approximately two hours from the Cities of Austin and Fort Worth, and slightly more than an hour to the rapidly growing Waco, Texas area. The Property is approximately twelve miles southwest of the County seat of Hamilton County and is located within the Limestone Cut Plain sub-region of the Cross Timber ecoregion of Texas. Hamilton Municipal Airport is approximately ten miles from the entrance to the property. Medical, grocery, and other commercial suppliers can all be found within a fifteen-minute drive in Hamilton, TX. Land: The Property boasts a diverse landscape of native prairies, valleys, and capped mesa uplands interspersed with riparian woodlands. Its high-quality terrestrial community includes a mixture of riparian forests, native rangelands, and White Shin Oak shrublands suitable for Black-capped Vireo. There is approximately 80’ of topography variance throughout the property that rolls throughout the ranch and dives into deeper canyons in certain areas. The soils are mainly comprised of Nuff very stony silty clay loam, Lampasas gravely clay, Bosque clay loam, Brackett gravelly clay, and Oglesby gravelly silty clay, freestone fine sandy loam, woodtell loam, and Lufkin-raino complex. Water: Gholson Creek runs through the property for approximately one-half mile. Even when not running, this creek has deeper pockets that tend to hold water throughout the year. Ancient dinosaur tracks and historic wagon wheel scars have been identified in the bedrock of the creek. The ranch also contains a perennial wetland that has retained water during severe droughts. The Property overlays the Trinity Aquifer - one of the most extensive and highly used groundwater resources in Texas. Wildlife: High tree-top canopies along the banks of Gholson Creek lead to steep canyon cliffs that extend along the creek into feeder draws bordered by sprawling hilltop vistas. Herds of bison once grazed the Property's pre-settlement grasslands, which included species such as big bluestem, little bluestem, yellow Indiangrass, tall dropseed, and Sideoats grama. The Property's plant community and water resources provide significant relatively natural habitat for native wildlife, such as white-tailed deer, wild boar, varmints, predatory animals, bald eagles, and migratory birds such as dove and waterfowl. Home: Completed in 2009, the mid-century modern homestead design was based on Richard Neutra’s Kaufmann Desert House in Palm Springs and Frank Lloyd Wright’s, Falling Water, interior. The low-profile construction using large spans of glass, pasture stone hand-selected from the ranch, and paint colors based on the ranch grasses, live oak leaves and bark, allows for the continuity of the landscape through the home. Privacy, optimal views, and physical comfort are provided through a linear floorplate with north south openings to capture the breeze. To obstruct the afternoon sun, the carport borders the west wing. A white, Class-4, impact resistant TPO roof reflects the sun and has provided a 25% discount on insurance. Hues of the sunset are captured in the 20-gauge, milled, stainless steel facia that crowns the house. Slicked concrete floors throughout allow for a sleek mid-century look with low-maintenance requirements on a working ranch. Complementing the slicked gray surface are Lutron wall plates and Baldwin hardware. The doors, built-in cabinets and wall ledges are of solid walnut, cherry, and mesquite harvested from the ranch. Oak and pecan trees felled by a tornado in 2009 were used to craft the dining table, benches and bar top in the central room. To maintain authenticity, as Frank Lloyd Wright detested granite, cork was used for counter surfaces. Art and performance continue in the kitchen with a Liebherr fridge, Fratelli Onofri range, Hansgrohe faucet, and Blanco Steelart Double Sink with Drainboard. Bathroom oversized sinks and faucets are Town Square by American Standard, toilets from Neptune and shower panels by Hudson Reed. Stiebel Eltron on-demand heaters provide hot water to the showers and Ariston on-demands heat sinks. In addition to Sanyo mini-splits in each room, Scan wood burning stoves from Denmark provide beauty and heat to the main room and two bedrooms. A heavy natural edged mesquite mantel tops a second fireplace in the main room. The pasture stone hearth and slab act as a bench or table that provides a welcome spot to warm by the fi or dry wet articles. A love of Texas, nature and the outdoors inspired this home, which in turn provides views of moving scenery that evolves with the seasons and the years. From the comfort within the walls, the natural world is the art and entertainment to be enjoyed by those who dwell within. Other Structures: A covered carport is attached to the house. Next to it is a salvaged antique train caboose. Adjacent to the caboose is a three-sided equipment shed. Conservation Easement: The property is under a conservation easement designed for continuing thoughtful practices in operating a livestock and recreational ranch or farm. The easement allows for two additional large building envelopes and one agricultural envelope for future improvements. Contact broker for additional details. Minerals: Contact broker for details.

$1,927,080  •  214.12 acres
These 214 acres are arguably the best deer hunting ranch of this size anywhere in Central Texas. It is located in SW Hamilton County in the Vista Mountain Wildlife Association Management Area and bordered by large neighbors with similar attributes. The ranch has been intensely managed for quality whitetail for many years. It is pure deer habitat with a dense cover of hardwoods and brush consisting mainly of Oak and Elm trees with lots of Shinnery Oak and other browsing species providing a tremendous habitat for deer and other wildlife. The topography and dense brush create the feel of a much larger ranch. The neighbor that currently leases this property has worked hard to reintroduce and maintain a population of Bobwhite Quail. I personally saw and heard quail while touring the ranch for my photo shoot. The Vista Mountain Wildlife Management Area is a voluntary COOP land management group in excess of 10,000 acres that was created to improve the quality of deer and other wildlife within its boundaries. As a member, you will qualify for Texas Parks and Wildlife MLD status that extends your hunting season, provides additional deer tags to allow proper culling and management of the deer herd and gives you a group of like-minded neighbors. This ranch is surrounded by mostly larger ranches with deer management being their top priority. This ranch is comprised of about 75% dense brush surrounding a rolling grassland meadow with scattered large hardwood trees. The terrain is undulating with several changes in elevation ranging from 1581 ft to 1674 ft. There is a modest older rock home sitting off the road and on top of the hill with long distant views. This house has been used as hunter lodging by one of the neighbors that has had it leased for several years. It appears to be a very solid structure with lots of character and would be a great renovation project. There are several older barns in various stages of repair, a water well and a septic system. (All need to be inspected and verified by buyer). This ranch is located about 18 miles SW of Hamilton and 15 miles NW of Goldthwaite. It is in a fairly remote area with very little drive-by traffic creating a very quiet, peaceful setting where you can escape and relax. It is accessed by an all-weather gravel road. The ranch does offer the potential for division into smaller tracts with almost half a mile of road frontage along two sides. Even with the road frontage it is still very secluded with all the fence rows being grown up with brush. If you are looking for a remote, peaceful ranch that offers great hunting, beautiful vistas and quiet country living, come take a look at this awesome ranch.
