At a Glance

Location

The Senn Family Ranch is roughly half way between Dallas and Houston, being 140 miles southeast of downtown Dallas, via I-45 and 125 miles north northwest of downtown Houston. The property is just 15 1/2 miles southeast of Centerville, which is so named, because it is at the geographic center of Leon County. The location is ideal for Dallas folks with friends/family in Houston or vice versa.

Water

The property features two lakes, built to grow and sustain trophy fish, in order to provide unforgettable fishing memories for family and friends. The largest lake is approximately 8 1/2 acres and has been managed intensively for trophy bass for the last sixteen years. The owner just added a “covered picnic pavilion”on the lakeshore, for enhanced enjoyment of the larger lake. The other lake is roughly 2 1/2 acres and is stocked with channel cat and crappie.
There is a shared well that costs $125/year that is for emergency use, if needed, that the owner has never needed to use.
Additionally, there is a recently drilled and completed, water well producing 30 gpm with a 60 gpm capacity.

W ildlife. The deer population on the ranch is a combination of native river-bottom genetics, culled to the owners preferences, and hand-selected northern whitetail genetics. There are also feral hogs, bobcat, fox, coyote, rabbits, ducks and dove.
There are 12 double-enclosed, fiberglass hunting blinds, each with metal ladder access and 10' tall.
There are 5 tree stand blinds (3 single/2 double).

Land

The terrain is gently rolling. The land consists of approximately 80% timber and 20% grassy meadows. Soils consist of about 40% of the land being Woodtell fine sandy loam and another 25% of the ranch is Derly-Rader Complex - both are suited to pasture, range, woodland and wildlife. Roughly 30% of the property is Rader fine sandy loam - suitable for cultivated crops, pasture, range, woodland and wildlife. Approximately 5% of the place in the extreme southeast corner and touching the northeast corner, is made up of Nahatche loam, which is mostly found creekside, along Clapps Creek as it wanders on and off the property.

Improvements

The lodge has four bedrooms and four bathrooms, an office and plenty of room to congregate in the spacious combination den, dining and kitchen area. There is also a connected, but separate, owners suite which is one-bedroom, one-bath, a living room, kitchenette and large closet. A large covered front porch features a built-in bar and grill, perfect for relaxing and telling stories, after a few days of hunting and fishing at the ranch. There is a 30’x80’ metal building on slab, with three rollup doors and covered equipment storage enclosed and insulated. There is also a 50’x75’ fully-insulated metal building on a slab consisting of a 50’x50’ shop area with roll up doors and a 25’x50’ fully-insulated and enclosed RV shed with electric hook ups for anRV and a roll-up door.
