Mockingbird Hill Ranch
Mockingbird Hill Ranch is a 235-acre mol ranch located just a few miles west of Stratford, OK. With a location just 80 miles southeast of OKC and 160 miles north of Dallas, it would be a great spot for those with family and friends located in both cities. The property has almost a half mile of frontage on both Highway 19 and County Road N 3350 as well as a quarter mile of frontage on County Road E 1540. With frontage on three roads, its easy to access the entire property regardless of weather conditions. In addition, it gives you plenty of options for subdividing the property in the future.
The ranch has been in the same family for many decades. The old farmhouse and small milk barn harken back to a simpler time. The home itself is currently being rented out and the renters would like to stay, if possible. It has three bedrooms and a fourth room that could either be used as a small bedroom or office. It has one bathroom, a nice sized kitchen, dining room and living room. The old milk barn has been nicely maintained and now serves as a storage shed and small shop building. In addition, there is newer large shop building constructed with a wood frame and metal siding and roof, complete with a concrete floor and wiring. A lean to on the south side of the shop is a great place for storing equipment.
Although the property has been leased to a local rancher, it has been well maintained, sprayed and conservatively grazed. In other words, the fences are good and the grass is thick. Cattle have water access by ponds or the creek in every pasture. The pastures and meadows in the creek bottom have fertile Class 2 soils and are shaded by large native pecan trees. In summary, Mockingbird Hill Ranch is a working ranch that has older improvements that have been nicely maintained. Even though the ranch is mostly open, a ribbon of hardwoods extend through the ranch and we saw three deer as well as numerous tracks.
The land has a very attractive roll to it. The home sits atop an 80 ft tall hill and the elevation of the land falls away in every direction. Keel Sandy Creek runs north to south through the property and the topography would allow the construction of a lake as large as 13 acres. In fact, we can easily imagine the next owner building a new home on top of the hill overlooking this new lake. If you would like construction estimates, we would be happy to provide them.
We think Mockingbird Hill Ranch would be such a beautiful place for the next steward owner to enjoy improving and managing just as the current owners have enjoyed for many decades. You may even come to think of it as home as much as they have. Bring your livestock, enjoy planting a big garden, manage the pecan trees, bale some hay, enjoy fishing the ponds and watching the deer; those are all things that you can do at the ranch. Build a modern home, remodel the one that's there or just continue to rent it out and take advantage of the income. Whatever you choose to do, we think you will come to appreciate the property and see all the possibilities just as we have. If you have any questions please call Chrissy Banks at 765 220 2489.
