Description

Welcome to a piece of Texas history- The Erskine Ranch! This sprawling 117 acres has been in the same family for 117+ years. Located in beautiful Limestone County with access on two county roads and no restrictions, this ranch is waiting for its next owner to create their own legacy. Known in Thornton as The Little White House on the Hill, the 2 bedroom, 1 bath farmhouse is both quaint and traditional- surrounded by lush green fields and a serene landscape. Since owners are leaving the house furnished, you are ready to just start enjoying! The land itself is a treasure trove of possibilities whether you dream of raising livestock, having a weekend getaway, or simply enjoying the tranquility of nature. The ranch is fully fenced and cross-fenced for rotational grazing purposes. Given its strong native grasses and fertilizing, owner typically runs 45-50 head here year round. A cattle rancher will sure appreciate the pipe, cattle corral and working pens. The ranch is additionally well watered, offering a dependable water source for the homestead, wildlife and livestock. The front stock pond is spring fed and maintains a constant water level. Owners have kept a small grove of trees around the other pond to welcome the whitetail deer and abundant wildlife that is typical of a Central Texas ecosystem. At Erskine Ranch, the canvas is ready for you to paint your own picture of Texas living. Spend your days horseback riding, fishing in the ponds, exploring the vast acreage, or simply unwinding in the shade of towering hardwoods. In the evenings, gather around a crackling bonfire under the starlit sky, sharing stories and laughter with loved ones. Many generations of great stories have sure been shared on the back covered patio. This idyllic retreat offers a chance to disconnect from the noise of modern life and reconnect with the simple pleasures of the great outdoors. Imagine waking up every morning to the peaceful surroundings of Thornton, with the convenience of having everything you need just a stone's throw away. This property truly offers the best of both worlds - a tranquil retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life, yet close enough to enjoy all the amenities you could ever want. Conveniently located right in the middle of the Golden Triangle, this ranch is less than an hour from Waco, 2 hours from Dallas, 2.5 hours to Austin, and 2.5 hours to Houston. Call today! Don't miss out on this opportunity to own a piece of Texas history and make this legacy ranch yours.
