Update: 10 acres of the northwest corner of the property has been taken off the market. 204 acres remain.
Tombstone Ranch is a 204-acre property located just southeast of Allen, OK in Hughes County, 2 1/2 hours from Dallas and 1 1/2 hours from Oklahoma City. With frontage on both paved and gravel county roads and being located 2 1/2 miles from Highway 48, this property offers easy access to and from the major metro areas. The ranch takes its name from a small cemetery located just off the property's southeast corner but rightfully has a ton of western character of its own.
The land consists of a relatively flat upland pasture that has four wooded draws that fall away to the south and east. Two of the draws have ponds. The western most pond is about an acre and there are two other ponds in another drainage that are each about a half-acre in size. The owner is currently building a third larger pond in this drainage that should be about 3 acres in size. Other water resources include a nice wet weather creek that runs along the northeast corner of the property and a buffalo wallow located in middle of the upland area. Lastly, an old hand dug well with a sandstone rock opening sits near an old homeplace near the uppermost pond.
The pastures are a mixture of cool and warm season grasses such as bermuda, clover and rye grass. Although mostly open there are two small areas of dense cedar growth and large oak trees grow along the wet weather creek. This area is a travel corridor for deer coming down from the densely forested hills through the property and on to Muddy Boggy Creek. In addition, the property is close enough to natural wetlands along Muddy Boggy Creek that it's not unusual for mallards and wood ducks to visit the ponds during the winter.
For those looking for a property that includes accommodations for extended family, Tombstone Ranch would be ideal with its two homes. The entry to the main home is through an attractive large entry with a driveway that flows and curves through the woods and up the hill. There the home sits in a pleasant opening with an overlook of the entry gate and bottom ground below. This 1750 square foot home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and has lots of western touches like the heavy wood beam over the fireplace, wagon wheel light fixture, sliding barn doors and wood grain tile flooring. Just south of the house is metal shed with lights and a nice set of dog kennels. The property has both well and rural water.
A second 1500 square foot, three bedroom, two bathroom home sits nearby but out of sight of the main home and is accessed by its own driveway from the paved road. This modular structure has a nice modern styling but still fits with the rural setting. It also has a large dog kennel and a small chicken coop nearby.
Tombstone Ranch is a family ranch. Children, colts, calves and Catahoula puppies have been raised here over the years but the time has come for the family to move on to their next adventure. If you are looking for a place where you can raise livestock, hunt, fish and enjoy the peace and tranquility of rural Oklahoma living, then you need to come check out this ranch.
