At the end of a quiet, Hamilton County road, just outside of Evant, Texas, sits a truly unique property. Hidden Oaks Ranch has been in the same family for over a quarter century and primarily used as a cattle ranch. This family has poured themselves into making Hidden Oaks Ranch what it is today.

The 1500 acre ranch has some impressive topography with rolling terrain that provides gorgeous views in every direction. Hidden Oaks is scattered with native trees, but oddly enough, you will find very few cedar or mesquite trees here. The landscape features a couple of wet weather creeks, multiple ponds and the main focal point of Hidden Oaks Ranch which is the 12 acre lake. With a lake this size there is no shortage of recreational opportunities. There are multiple species of water fowl that call this lake home, including the occasional Sandhill crane. If you are fisherman, then you will enjoy catching bass, perch and catfish. This lake has continued to provide water even in one of the worst droughts the State of Texas has ever seen.

The unique topography and various water sources of Hidden Oaks Ranch help support the extensive wildlife populations that call this ranch home. South Texas genetics were introduced into the area years ago and Hidden Oaks Ranch is still seeing the benefits of the genetics from those massive South Texas deer. The owners are careful to not allow extensive hunting and have great relationships with those allowed to hunt this ranch. Whitetail deer, turkey, dove, hogs, foxes, jack rabbits, you name and you can find it. You might even see a famous State of Texas armadillo!

This ranch has everything for the outdoorsman while also being designed to handle over 200 head of cattle in an area not normally known for raising cattle. The ranch has a blend of native grasses, roughly 60 acres in Tifton Bermuda and over 200 acres in oats each year. The owners have carefully designed pastures through the main section of the ranch. There is one main road that meanders through and gains you access to each of these pastures. The majority of the fencing through the ranch is done with Gallagher electric fencing and is controlled off two separate chargers. Each of the pastures has a water trough to provide water to cattle year round, regardless of the rainfall. The ranch also has two separate sets of working pens when the time comes to process cattle.

Hidden Oaks Ranch has 3 water wells that provide water throughout the ranch and two houses. There is a smaller wood frame farmhouse on the main section that has been gutted for remodel. It has the original ship lap walls and bead board ceilings. This house is a blank slate for remodel. The ranch also has a rock, hunter’s cabin that could be remodeled for a second house or weekend retreat on the ranch.

There are not many places left that boast this much acreage with this type of topography, surface water, pasture design and outdoor lifestyle. Hidden Oaks Ranch is truly a special ranch that offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for families to enjoy for generations to come.

Hidden Oak Ranch offers seclusion without sacrificing location. This property sits within an hour’s drive from Waco, Texas, roughly two hours from Austin and a little over two hours from the DFW area. Whether you are looking for a hunter’s paradise, a working cattle ranch or a place to call home, Hidden Oaks is a ranch you won’t want to miss seeing.
