Property Description

The SanctuaryContact Cade Baxter at 214.236.4205 to schedule a private showingIntroducing The Sanctuary, 62.58+/- unique acres that solves the dilemma of needing to choose between land or lake. This perfectly positioned acreage shares a half mile of boundary with the 8,925 acre Pat Mayse WMA and only 8 miles from the Pat Mayse Lake boat ramp, a 7,680 surface acre lake. A thoughtful and thorough road system has been established through the towering hardwoods providing excellent access and allowing maximum utility of the acreage. Between the surprising amount of elevation change, the meandering creek, mature trees, and food plots there is no shortage of character to the property. There is one prepped build location, but there are plenty of locations to choose from to build. The Sanctuary is situated in the Red River Basin (about 3 miles from the Red River) and in the Post Oak Savanah Ecoregion. All of this and you do not have to sacrifice great proximity to the creature comforts, 19 miles to Paris, TX and only 105 miles from DFW!The LandThe Pat Mayse WMA consists of 8,925 acres located in the Post Oak Savannah Ecological Region on the western edge of the Pat Mayse Reservoir in northern Lamar County. Approximately 11 miles northwest of Paris, the area has no buildings or resident staff. The Pat Mayse Wildlife Management Area contains approximately 1,500 surface acres of water, 2,500 acres of abandoned fields and 4,925 acres of hardwood timber. The land area is composed of approximately 1,000 acres of bottomlands and 6,500 acres of uplands. There are three permanently flowing streams on the Pat Mayse Wildlife Management Area: Sanders Creek, Craddock Creek and Sand Branch as well as many small water impoundments scattered throughout the area. The WMA is teeming with life ranging from whitetail deer, feral hogs, turkey, waterfowl and other small game and birds. Adjoining Pat Mayse provides incredible and unique opportunity for the land owner to leverage and utilize.The LakePat Mayse Lake, named after Mrs. Pat Mayse, a tireless advocate for the lake, is located on Sanders Creek, a tributary of the Red River. It is approximately twelve miles north of Paris in Lamar County, Texas. According to the data source from Lamar County website on Pat Mayse Lake, "Groundbreaking of the new lake was in October 1964. Mrs. Pat Mayse joined Congressman Wright Patman and U.S. Army Corps of Engineer officials for the groundbreaking. Based on pertinent data from U. S. Army Corps of Engineers (Tulsa District), the top of dam is at the elevation of 488.5 feet above mean sea level and the uncontrolled emergency spillway crest is at the elevation of 477 feet above mean sea level. The capacity at top of flood control pool is 189,100 acre feet encompassing a surface area of 7,680 acres at the elevation of 460.5 feet above mean sea level. According to TWDB 2008 volumetric survey, Pat Mayse Lake has a storage capacity of 117,844 acre-feet and encompasses 5,638 acres at the top of conservation pool, elevation of 451.0 feet above mean sea level (NGVD29). The dam controls a drainage area of approximately 175 square miles.The upper third of Pat Mayse Lake, upstream from Lamar Point, is heavily timbered with numerous coves and cuts which provide excellent habitat for largemouth bass, crappie and catfish. Many of these coves also have margins of submerged and emergent vegetation. Rip rap on the dam provides opportunities for all species throughout the year.The FactsLOCATION: Lamar county (19 miles south of Paris, TX)Pat Mayse Lake Boat Ramp- 8 milesParis- 19 milesSherman- 77 milesMcKInney- 90 milesRockwall- 102 milesDNT/SRT- 105 milesRed River- 3 miles CLIMATE: 45 in. annual rainfall UTILITIES: Electric and city water present at the road, water wells in the immediate area range from 67'-175' in depth WILDLIFE: Whitetail deer, hogs, ducks, dove, turkey MINERALS: Seller will consider with an acceptable offer VEGETATION: The vegetation consists Post oak, water oak, red oak, blackjack, white oak, pecan, loblolly pine, honey locust, cedar, native grasses TERRAIN: 25 ft.
