Maddox Ranch, located approximately 6 miles north of Fairfield, is a quality hunting and cattle ranch that was established in 2013. The location is prime with large neighbors on each side and easy access off of black topped county road. Encompassing approximately 467 acres of gently rolling topography, the ranch consists of 50% improved pasture and 50% timber stands made up of varying hardwoods. There is no shortage of water with 16 lakes, ponds and stock tanks scattered evenly throughout the property allowing animals easy access to water. The entire perimeter of the ranch is game-proof fenced and there is cross fencing through the interior. An extensive interior road system allows for easy travel and enjoyment of the ranch.
Two permitted MLD release sites, sixteen breeding pens and a working barn make up the improvements for the extensive breeding operation. With a carrying capacity of over 150 deer and an average production of 50 fawns a year, the current herd is very healthy. The genetics have been tailored to produce 200+ typical frames with exceptional mass and tine length. The 2018 Texas Trophy Hunters Association Best of Show was awarded to a buck harvested from the Maddox Ranch.
There are three dwellings located in the heart of the ranch, surrounded by picturesque views. The main lodge is 2,400 sqft with 4 bedrooms and two baths. A large gathering room allows for comfortably entertaining multiple guests. The owner’s house is 1,200 sqft and is finished out nicely. Both the lodge and owner’s house are barndominiums with attached garage/shop space and overhanging porches. The foreman’s house is a 500 sqft schoolhouse that has been renovated and includes one bedroom and one bath. A firepit is located between the three structures and ties everything together into a common area. Other improvements include an open sided equipment barn and a set of pipe cattle working pens.
Maddox Ranch is an exceptional offering with income production and unlimited recreational enjoyment. The hunting and fishing are first class, and the raw beauty of the property is stunning! $2,625,000
