Brazos Riverfront Ranch
Brazos Riverfront Ranch is a beautiful 47+ acre property located directly on the Brazos River in the small community of Gholson. The property has approximately 1150 feet of river frontage lined with massive Pecan trees and two spots where boats can easily be launched into the river. The property includes a nice remodeled/updated farmhouse and equipment building/shop.
Located in northern McLennan County, this property is just 20 miles from Baylor University and downtown Waco. It is conveniently located 90 miles from Dallas, 85 miles from Fort Worth, and 121 miles from Austin.
The land is a nice rectangular tract with incredible, accessible recreational frontage on the Brazos River. Massive Pecan Trees make the river frontage into a beautiful park-like setting. The property also contains a well-maintained Coastal Bermuda meadow. The property fronts on Jake Sparks Drive, and this paved road continues into a cul-de-sac that dead ends just past the entrance which limits vehicle traffic and road noise. The ranch has approximately 50 feet of elevation change which gently slopes from the front of the property towards the river. The majority of the soils are comprised of various sandy loams.
The Brazos River is the crown jewel of this ranch. This is a secluded section of the river in a prime location. It has tremendous access with almost a quarter of a mile of river frontage. The river depth fluctuates when water is being released from Lake Whitney, but it never goes dry. You can kayak, canoe, or airboat for miles up and down the river. This consistent water source provides great year-round fishing and draws in plenty of wildlife and waterfowl. Duck hunting in the river can be fantastic. The home and headquarters are supplied with water from Gholson Water Supply.
The property includes a 1,120 SQFT home featuring 2 bedrooms, 1 bath and an additional 120 SQFT porch. Both the kitchen and the bath have been recently remodeled. It also includes a large utility room that could be used as a third bedroom or home office. This charming farmhouse was believed to have been originally built in 1948 and was completely updated in 2017. It includes a new septic system which was installed in 2020. The home can be utilized as a charming full-time residence or the perfect destination for entertaining family and friends as a weekend retreat.
