Sandy Creek Ranch - Ada
UPDATE - THE SELLER IS WILLING TO SELL THE BARNDOMINIUM AND SOUTH 30 ACRES SEPERATELY. CALL FOR DETAILS.
Sandy Creek Ranch is an ideal combination ranch. Located just west of Ada, Oklahoma, 1.5 miles south of Highway 19, 80 miles from Oklahoma City and 150 miles from Dallas; this ranch offers productive hay meadows, trail-lined rolling forest, and a combination shop and living quarters.
This 230-acre ranch mol has approximately 84 acres of Class II soils in the flat ground that runs along a 2300-foot stretch of Sandy Creek. Fifty acres of this fertile soil supports a blanket of large hardwoods and pecan trees while the other 34 acres is a hay meadow that produces high quality, strong yielding hay. The seller has the hay custom baled and has an existing customer base that would likely remain loyal customers. The amount of revenue produced from hay sales is enough to pay taxes and offset other expenses associated with owning the property all while requiring minimal effort on the part of the owner.
The remainder of the property is rolling hills covered with mature stands of oak trees. This combination of fertile creek bottom areas, a steady supply of clean water in the creek and mast producing oak forested hills, makes this ranch an ideal place for wildlife. During filming, the ground was covered with acorns and several well-defined deer trails were noted. We happened to have an extra trail camera on hand and set it up on a trail near the shop. By the next morning, we were getting pictures of multiple does and a young 8-point buck. Since then, weve started feeding and will be updating the listing with more pictures as we get them.
The main section of the ranch lies along a quiet county road with just under a mile of road frontage. There are three well maintained entrances to the ranch, two providing direct access to the hay meadows and the third servicing the shop and living quarters. Two unusual features are located near the two northern entrances. An abandoned railroad track runs north of Sandy Creek. This elevated path runs from the county road all the way to the east boundary of the ranch and would make a nice all-weather roadbed. Although the entire property can be accessed from the main road, there is also an old wood and steel cable bridge that provides a direct crossing of the creek on the ranch. This bridge was once part of a county road that has since been abandoned.
The main headquarters of the ranch features a combination shop and living space. The 3 bedroom 2 bathroom quarters is heated and cooled with a full kitchen and laundry hook-up. The downstairs has a nice set of kitchen cabinets, small pantry beneath the stairs, and stained concrete floors. The bedrooms are upstairs and have exposed roof trusses that extend down through the ceiling. Taller buyers will likely want the Land Doctors to give an estimate on how to cut and brace the trusses for more headroom. The shop portion is equipped with large roll up doors and would make the perfect place to store and work on equipment. The shop site itself sits atop a hill surrounded by forest with trails leading to other parts of the ranch.
With a combination of hay meadow and forest, this property would be ideal for someone wanting a great recreational place or a place to farm/hay on a limited basis and get the existing pecan trees into production. An orchard of improved variety pecan trees could also be established in the hay meadows. Given the various features of the property, Sandy Creek Ranch could be used in a multitude of ways.
