This beautiful turn-key ranch has just about everything you could ask for; great improvements, tremendous views, awesome water, irrigated fields, lots of game, large creek bottom, and incredible brush.
This high fenced ranch is truly the exception when it comes to diversity of habitat and topography. Over 85% of the property is fertile bottom land with excellent soils and incredible native brush consisting of just about every species common to South Texas. There are giant Mesquite trees scattered throughout the property and Elm Creek which runs through the center of the ranch is lined with beautiful monster Live Oaks, Elms and Hackberry trees.
here are 3 pivot irrigated fields which consist of an 80 acre field with circle pivot tower and two separate 35 acre circles that share a towable tower pivot. There is also an additional 50 +/- acres of un-irrigated food plots. The remainder 15% of the ranch consists of high hills which provide amazing views, not only of the entire ranch but also for miles and miles of the surrounding country.
When it comes to South Texas, water is the key and this ranch has exceptional water capabilities. One of the main features of this property would have to be Elm Creek which runs through the center of the ranch. Elm Creek is a large wet weather creek that holds pools of water throughout most of the year. There are 2 large irrigation wells, one powered by 3 phase electricity and the other powered by a diesel engine. Both wells are equipped with 200 hp pumps and are in the Carrizo aquifer which is approximately 700 +/-feet in depth. Both wells are capable of producing 500 + gpm. There is also one domestic well which provides water to the headquarters.
There are 12 stock ponds throughout the ranch, 8 of which are supplemented by the 3 phase irrigation well with over 10,000 feet of 8 inch pvc water line. In addition, there is one lake that is 8+ acres when full. The lake is stocked with fish and is supplemented by the diesel irrigation well with a separate 8 inch pvc water line. All three of the circle pivot locations are supplied by the 3 phase irrigation well which also have 8 inch pvc supply lines.
Sitting high on a hill overlooking the entire ranch is the main headquarters. The headquarters consist of a fully furnished 5800 +/- sf two-story main house. The house has 7 bedrooms and 7 full baths with one half bath. There is a large kitchen and dining area, sitting room, large living room and a huge trophy & game room.
