In addition to the abundant native grasses, a wide variety of high protein brush species are present such as Blackbrush, Guakillo, Granjeno and Senise.

Improvements: A beautiful Live Oak lined paved driveway makes way to the 5200 square foot, 4 bedroom 3 bath custom home.

Tastefully designed of sandstone with a tile roof, the deep porches provide shade for the great room. There are multiple patios for outdoor enjoyment to take in the spectacular South Texas sunsets. No detail has been spared, from the landscaping, to the water filtration system, and the stylish furnishings this could either serve as a full time residence or a gentleman’s ranch.
There are six, one room Hunters Cabins located near a nice stock tank a short drive from the main house. Adjacent to the cabins is the processing barn complete with two walk in coolers, an ice machine, stainless steel tables and motorized winches for processing game. The foreman’s house is located nearby for ease of management.
For the long range shooting enthusiast, there is a range with steel targets out to 975 yards.
A small portion of the ranch is currently being utilized as a State Licensed Scientific Breeder Facility complete with 28 breeder pens, working alleys, and a 60’x 40′ climate controlled working barn. Please note that the deer within the breeding pens are not included in the sale of the property. The owner will consider selling the deer program by separate negotiation.
A variety of hunting blinds and high quality feeders are spread across the ranch by way of the extensive road system. There are several stock tanks for wildlife water as well as waterlines piped to multiple troughs.
Additionally, there are pole barns and equipment sheds along with overhead feed bins for bulk corn and protein feed. Please inquire for a list of items that will convey with the property.
This property presents an outstanding opportunity for the next owner to pursue a commercial hunting business or have an incredible ranch to invite friends and family. It would take years to develop a ranch to this level so take advantage of all the work that has been done and step right in.
