Properties like this hidden jewel don’t come on the market often! Come take a look at Creekview Ranch which dates back to 1898 and has been called home to only two families in the last 124 years. The 181 +/- acre ranch is diverse with pasture land, a coastal plot, pecan groves, riverfront, and rolling hills with elevation changes of 60 feet. Its location is a short drive to Waco and Clifton and a two-hour drive from the DFW area.
HOME: Step back into nostalgia in this 1970 home with original light fixtures and décor. The 2,414 sqft. home has a large open-concept kitchen and den combo, ahead of its time. Brick arches accent a built-in desk and refrigerator area in the kitchen with stained glass lighting over the breakfast area. Windows are splayed across the back of the house lending views of the nestling oaks and countryside landscape. Opposite the kitchen is the stone fireplace leading up to the vaulted ceilings accented with wood beams. Step out onto the back deck and enjoy your morning coffee sitting under the live oaks or entertain your friends in the evening watching Bosque County’s beautiful sunsets.
In keeping with modest home sizes in the 1970s, there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The isolated master bedroom has dual vanities, a shared closet and shower facilities. There is a greenhouse and hobby room outside the master suite that, with a little TLC, could bring it back to its former beauty. On the opposite end of the house lies the second bedroom and bathroom.
The game room, complete with a bar which had previously resided in the Driskill Hotel in Austin, has a pool table with plenty of room for seating and entertaining guests. The spacious area has views showcasing the South end’s highest elevation on the property. There are also views of the nestling oaks on the West side of the property.
Side-entry two car garage. The property resides in Clifton ISD.
GUEST HOUSE: The original homestead to the property is now the guest house and boasts four bedrooms and two bathrooms in its 1,492 sqft. The kitchen has a breakfast area with windows on two walls letting in natural light. The sizable living room has wood beam ceiling accents, a stagecoach wheel lighting fixture, and a fireplace. The front porch has a swing where you can watch the sunrise hitting the foliage of the dense trees near the creek.
IMPROVEMENTS: There’s a well house which houses a 2nd Trinity well that was used on the property for decades prior to obtaining a rural water meter. A 50’x30’ metal shop with concrete floors and two 14’ roll-up doors provides ample storage for all your equipment. There’s also a small Dutch-style barn for additional storage and a building shed with concrete floors that is partially open on one end and enclosed with two rooms on the other. Behind the workshop and barn lies a pen area with a chute.
LAND FEATURES: The property has a lot to offer the buyer wanting to run cattle or simply enjoy for recreational aspects or both! The sprawling East Boundary is lined with approximately 5,000’ of Neil’s Creek frontage.

Along the riverbed are numerous mature oaks, bur oaks, cedar elms, cottonwoods, and two pecan tree groves. The property is perimeter fenced with barbed wire. There is approximately 85 grazing pasture acres, a 20-acre costal plot, and a 30-acre hilltop where the elevation reaches 660 ft above sea level. This location overlooks the shared tank on the property and Bosque County’s hillside. It would make an excellent home site for a buyer desiring views.
