10500 Mitchell Bend Court, Granbury, TX 76048.
The ranch covers 236 acres and has been owned by the same family for over 70 years, with the original rock house homestead still being in place. The property sits in a horseshoe of the Brazos River, called Mitchell Bend, and has over 1/2 mile of river frontage. There is both low-bank frontage with direct water access and also high-bank with scenic views, which is quite rare. There is approx 150 feet of dramatic elevation change.
Live oaks are scattered throughout along with cedar, mesquite, cottonwood, hackberry and pecan trees which provide good shade and cover for the livestock and wildlife alike. There is a good mix of open grassland along with the more heavily wooded areas. The ranch is home to Whitetail deer, feral hogs, turkey, dove, quail, and other birds along with coyotes, bobcats, rabbits, squirrels, and other varmint. There has been virtually no hunting activity on the property. Mitchell Bend Court is not a through street so traffic is limited and it is a very quiet and peaceful place to live.
