Hidden Meadow Ranch
The Hidden Meadow Ranch is located 10 miles West of Ada, Oklahoma on Highway 19, a convenient 80 miles to the OKC metro and 150 miles from Dallas/Ft.Worth. This combination ranch offers areas of open pastures, deep wooded draws and pockets of hardwoods. There are 3 main ponds that service the cross-fenced pastures as well as 2 wet-weather drainages lined with hardwoods; a favorite travel corridor for the whitetail deer.
The 1127 feet of highway frontage lays on the southern boundary of the ranch where you'll find a gated entrance with a small trap and smaller 3-sided shed. It is also here where you'll find rural water at the highway and electric service already set and ready for a meter.
The 113 acres is cross-fenced into 3 main pastures with the norther half of the property being the largest pasture at just over 60 acres in size. This pasture has a large pond for water and a large creek on the western side where we found many scrapes, rubs and other signs of wildlife. The current owners report seeing deer and wild hogs on the trail cams as well as the occasional coyote and bobcat. The natural design of the creek corridors offer protection, water and a food source throughout the year via the many oak trees, browse and wild berries.
The southern portion of the ranch is split in two by the creek and each half is relatively equal at 25 acres in size. The western pasture is flat and would make a nice spot to build a home, overlooking the pond, using the natural landscape of hardwood groves as your backdrop; giving you that deep in the woods feeling. The eastern half is flat and smooth enough to use as a hay meadow or to plant cover crops for winter grazing. In addition, if you didn't mind the cost of extending service lines and building a driveway, the northern end of the property is 80 feet higher than the southern end. If you have the appetite to build a lake, there is a really nice spot to build one in the western creek. If you did this, then you could build at a higher elevation more toward the center of the property and overlook a new five acre lake to the south. Plus, your homesite would be in a hidden meadow shielded from the world by a wooded draw on either side of it. One of the best parts of having your home north of a lake is that the prevailing summer winds out of the southwest would blow across the lake to your home giving you a nice cooling breeze. Lastly, we could the driveway across the top of the dam to give you a spectacular drive home each and every day.
We definitely see this as a property ready for a steward's touch; someone who wants to take a piece of raw land with good features and turn it into a masterpiece.
