TRACT 2 (47.6 +/- acres): ***SOLD*** This tract has more creek frontage than the other tracts, following Brushy Elm Creek for approximately 0.54 miles along one side. While over half of this tract is in the 100 yr floodplain, 20 acres is still in higher ground not in the floodplain that provides plenty of space to build. Except the trees that line the creek, the land is all in coastal pasture. It has been recently baled, so it is mowed and clean.

TRACT 3 (23.337 +/- acres): The tract is approximately one third of a mile long, giving the land lots of variation in topography and features.

ABOUT THE CREEK:
This creek is what you think of when you hear the phrase “North Texas Hill Country”! Lined by limestone shale, it rolls across the rocks in the rainy season, sending out running water sounds you can hear from the pasture. The bed has lots of fossils in it too, is really fun to explore and relaxing to be around. The creek is lined on both sides by enormous hardwoods, including elm, sycamore, white oak, bur oak and native pecan. You will find all kinds of wildlife down by the creek as well, such as whitetail deer, Rio Grande turkey and seasonal song birds.
*For the tracts that front Brushy Elm Creek (Tracts 2-6), the survey line follows the middle of the creek bed.
