Spring Creek Ranch
Spring Creek Ranch is a stunning property located 12 miles south of Ada, OK, 96 miles southeast of Oklahoma City, and 149 miles north of Dallas, TX. With 1.6 miles of Highway 99 frontage and an additional 1.3 miles of paved county road that leads to the entry of the ranch, the peace and beauty that this property provides is easily accessible from any metro without having to drive on dirt roads. Plus, it also has a small landing strip.
This 905 acre mol ranch is about 50 percent open with the other 50 percent in blocks of mature timber along the banks of the beautiful spring fed creeks that run through the property, including 1100 tax depreciable pecan trees. Approximately 420 acres are considered higher quality farmable soils and because of this fertility, cattle and wildlife flourish on the ranch. These mineral rich soils also grow heavy racked whitetails that the Fittstown area is known for. Trail cameras will be placed on the property this summer to capture photos of this years crop of trophy bucks. In addition, large flocks of wild turkeys roost in the trees along the creeks and feed in the open creek bottom pastures.
The ranch features a creatively decorated main ranch house, a horse barn with living quarters, a shop and a dog kennel. The style of all the buildings is a mixture of country, western and cowboy heritage. The house is 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom farmhouse style that has been completely gutted and restored. The horse barn has two Priefert horse stalls, a tack room, a wash bay, an entertainment area, office and visitors accommodations. In addition, there is a small guest bunkhouse.
Spring Creek Ranch has 300 feet of elevation change that reveals some of Oklahomas most interesting geology and ancient history. A sizeable Frisco chert deposit outcrops on the property. This chert was highly prized by pre-Columbian tribes and traded throughout the area for use in constructing arrowheads and spears.
But the true magic of Spring Creek Ranch is the water. The water is supplied from the protected Arbuckle Simpson Aquifer by way of the Spring Creek spring located just on the other side of Highway 99. This constant source of pure spring water is crystal clear and cold throughout the year. As it traverses the ranch, the dramatic changes in elevation create unique and peaceful waterfalls throughout the ranch. These spectacular water features include areas where the creek splits around islands and then rejoins in a double waterfall setting with large splash pools. The perfect place for kids and adults to enjoy the summer. With 1.6 miles of the creek, there are literally scores of spots like these to explore and enjoy. In addition, the owner has irrigation rights to 325,850,943 gallons of water from the creek per year that will transfer with the sale of the property. Approximately 700,000,000 gallons of water flow down the creek each year. When you get ready to take the friends and family fishing, then you can choose from 10 lakes and ponds up to 2 acres in size.
Lastly, the ranch comes complete with a shale pit that can be used for your own private needs on the ranch or sold to the public. If you are interested in touring the property, please schedule a time with Kelly Hurt.
