Description: The Gentry Creek Ranch, is comprised of distinctive land. The land speaks of nature and of history. It speaks of struggle and triumph. Each element influences how we see the land, how we live with it, and how we use it. Understanding reveals the gift this land can offer. Respect preserves that gift for generations to come. Improvement provides use and joy for people far and wide.
The Gentry Creek Ranch is highly improved and being offered instant usability and enjoyment. It includes highly productive rangeland, newly built and completely refurbished structural improvements, good surface water, excellent fencing and roads, improved pastures, and great cattle infrastructure. Truly an exceptional blend of the very best terrain and land characteristics one could seek in a working yet highly recreational and personal ranch.
Location/ Access: The ranch is located between London and Junction, Texas. Just North of hwy. 377 with frontage on CR 311.
Water: The ranch has good surface water with Gentry Creek traversing through the ranch approx. 1 mile. The ranch is located on both sides of Gentry Creek. The creek is considered a live water creek with springs and holes of water located within the creek drainage area. The creek will sub out between holes and run underneath the gravel bed at times during drier times. The Gentry Creek ranch has two electric powered water wells. There is one water well serving the headquarters and one in a field near the headquarters. Both wells are considered good wells and are tied together to supply water to the headquarters area, and in case one goes down, there will always be well water available. The ranch is well watered with storage tanks, pipelines, water troughs, and concrete troughs to ensure an adequate and dependable water supply for both livestock and wildlife.
Improvements: The ranch has fantastic structural improvements, all suitable for living, entertaining, or visiting. The owners have done a wonderful job of maintaining the character of the preexisting structures while restoring and updating with some modern touches. The new structures were designed and built to blend in with the original look and feel of the established edifices. No detail was overlooked during this arduous process.
Main house: The main house, which was tastefully redone in the last 5-6 years, consists of 3-bedrooms and 2-bathrooms. The home features a living room with a fireplace, kitchen, and an extra living space/ dining area, which gives the owner a large bonus space to use for multiple uses within the house’s confines. The main house is CA/CH.
Guest House: Additionally, improvements in the headquarters area consist of a one-bedroom, one-bath guest house, which has been tastefully remodeled to have multiple beds and is in good condition.
There are two Quonset barns, each consisting of concrete slabs with large sliding doors on each end, with each one being approx. 3500 sq. ft.
The vehicle shed is large enough to park multiple vehicles and is built of steel and has a metal roof, and is enclosed on three sides.
The main barn and tack room were part of the original headquarter structures. The barn has electricity and water with a well-kept metal roof. A new addition to the headquarters is a second tact feed room, covered shed row for horses, and an excellent set of cattle working pens. Also, with close proximities to the shed row is a roping/riding arena. The current owners do love their horses and use these facilities frequently.
Outdoor living at the Gentry Creek Ranch was carefully thought out and designed perfectly for entertaining guests. One of the most significant improvements to the headquarters is a large rocked reservoir converted to a nice above ground swimming pool with all the pool equipment needed to maintain it. This comes in pretty handy on some of those warm summer hill country afternoons.
The ranch has good perimeter fencing in place, with about a 1/3 of the area being high fenced. The interior fences divide the ranch into several pastures and small traps around the headquarters.
Terrain: Sweeping views of Gentry Creek Valley and surrounding hills are breathtaking– sure to please the most discerning land buyers. The improved grass fields and large oak-lined creek bottom create a unique setting for this area of Texas. As you expand your look around the ranch, you will find nicely cleared valleys with improved grasses expanding up to Rim Rock lines and tabletop mesas with multiple varieties of hardwoods along the sides and on top culminating into some of the most spectacular views from the top. The combination and versatility of the terrain made for excellent wildlife habitat also serve to make Gentry Creek Ranch very productive.
Wildlife: The Ranch harbors a great number of whitetail deer, turkey, dove, quail, feral hogs, and varmints. In addition, there are some free-roaming exotics such as axis. Game management has been done by the owners, family, and guests only.
