Lago Vista Ranch  

1200 ACRES – LIVE OAK CO. 

CONTRACT PENDING

The 1,200+/- acre Lago Vista Ranch, located in southeastern Live Oak county just an hour from the beaches of Corpus Christi, is a rare jewel with unique optionality. Within its low fences, youll find every desirable facet of South Texas living Brush Country habitat with large mesquite, elm, and a few live oaks as well as native browse such as cenizo and guajillo, plentiful wildlife including whitetails, turkey, quail and dove. In addition, there is a 35 acre irrigated field as well as productive native pastures for grazing livestock. Situated 20 miles west of Mathis and with four different entrances, access to the ranch is easy. The main entrance is off Carmel Drive, which like all the other access points, is a paved, county-maintained road.

Lago Vista includes more than one and a half miles of private frontage on Lake Corpus Christi that encompasses high bluffs, stunning, unobstructed views of deep water, two private coves and several sandy beaches. A 50-acre, heavily wooded point juts into the lake, offering incredible homesites with unsurpassed privacy, enviable elevation and one-of-a-kind views. For more than 35 years, Lago Vista has operated as a family-run cow-calf operation and a recreational hunting ranch. In addition, the owners have built the foundation for valuable future development. In the late 1980s, they platted more than 60 lakeview and lakefront lots, ranging in size from half to one and a half acres each. While the owners did not market “Lakeshore”, the plans for the platted and restricted subdivision are grandfathered in, offering an undeveloped asset. Lago Vista has the necessary infrastructure as a working and recreational hunting ranch and maintains its agriculture tax valuation. (The 120-head herd of cattle and ranch equipment are available through a separate bill of sale.)

The ranch is cross fenced into 10 separate pastures, each with a water source to allow for well-managed, rotational grazing. Its minimal structural improvements include two hay barns measuring 200’x 40 and 50’x75′, a 40’x75′ equipment barn with a concrete floor, and a set of cattle working pens. In addition, there is a small block house currently occupied by the manager.

When it comes to water, Lago Vista boasts four domestic wells and one irrigation well supporting a 30-acre center pivot. Currently, the pivot system irrigates a

35-acre coastal Bermuda patch that provides hay for the ranch or potentially for sale. There are two stock ponds that not only deliver water for

wildlife and livestock but offer exceptional dove hunting during the fall season.

Whether you’re seeking a private all-around ranch, an un-tapped opportunity, or both, Lago Vista Ranch will prove to be a valuable addition to your asset portfolio.

Double S Ranch 

819 ACRES – BROOKS CO. 

CONTRACT PENDING

The Double S Ranch is located 11 miles southwest of Falfurrias and is an ideal turn-key ranch that offers a magnitude of hunting opportunities.  The well-balanced natural habitat and cover throughout the ranch is ideal for whitetail deer, bobwhite quail, dove, turkey and hogs.  The current owners have utilized the ranch as a family retreat and have never leased the hunting rights in their 20+ year ownership of the property.   The ranch is located in the Coastal Sandsheet region of South Texas known for its unique deep sand and Live Oak motts. Terrain on the ranch is hilly with more topography than one would expect for the region ranging from 215 to 265’ MSL and a hilltop offering distant views over neighboring ranches.

Improvements include a 2 bed/2 bath main home, a 2 bed/1 bath guest cabin, a 30 x 40 enclosed metal building, a game cleaning station and covered equipment parking areas.  Located between the main home and the guest cabin is a spacious outdoor entertainment area with a firepit perfect for gathering with friends or relaxing after an evening hunt. The main home’s floorplan features an open kitchen/living area, a large walk-in pantry and mudroom with a washer and dryer. The master bedroom is oversized with a walk-in closet.  Finish out includes beautiful stained wood ceilings, granite counter tops, recessed lighting and Saltillo tile throughout.

The guest cabin is a 2 bed/2bath floorplan with an open kitchen/living room area. Featured in this cabin is a large indoor fire-bricked parrilla grill. The cabin also has Saltillo tile, attached covered car parking area and a workshop/storage area.

Water service on the ranch is more than adequate with 2 submersible pump water wells. The main well is located behind the main house and services the headquarters area.

French Ranch 

549 ACRES – GONZALES CO.   

SOLD 

A true “diamond in the rough” the French Ranch is located north of IH-10 and south of HWY 90 in northern Gonzales County.  Booming Austin and San Antonio are only a 75 minute drive away with Houston being just over 2 hours.  The quiet town of Waelder is 4.5 miles to the east.  This generational family owned ranch has approximately 3500 ft. of frontage along lightly traveled County Road 423.

The ranch is 90% wooded and 10% open country with an impressive array of towering hardwoods including Live Oak, Post Oak and Cedar Elm. Near the center of the property there is a 30 acre Bermuda grass field dotted with huge Live Oak trees. The sandy loam soil in this area has produced an incredibly dense stand of grass that is of high quality and ag-value. The ranch is currently utilized as a cow-calf operation and can support 50 animal units in normal rainfall years.

There are 3 surface ponds, one of which has held water continuously for 70 years.  Seasonal Elm Creek enters the ranch near the northeast corner and meanders south the entire length of the ranch for about a mile. Though seasonal, the creek can hold shallow pools of water parts of the year.  Even with ownership of both sides of Elm Creek, the amount of floodplain is here minimal. The stream bed is a rust-colored gravel highlighted with exposed yellow bedrock. A towering canopy of trees and grassy meadows create not only a stunningly beautiful setting but also prime wildlife habitat.

There has been no hunting on the ranch for at least 50 years. This lack of hunting pressure, along with the availability of natural feed sources, an abundance of surface water and heavily wooded areas have created a sanctuary for the native wildlife.  The ranch is completely low-fenced with large neighbors on 3 sides.

With booming Austin and San Antonio nearby, the French Ranch is a blank slate for its next owner to enhance and improve upon its natural beauty. Mature hardwood forest, abundant wildlife, Elm Creek, raw unspoiled habitat and a highly desirable location make the French Ranch a rare opportunity in today’s world.

This Property is co-listed with David O. Faust – 512.940.3300.  Surface offering only. Known easements include a water transmission line and an overhead transmission line both located on the southern portion of the property. The property will be conveyed with an agricultural tax exemption.

Buyers brokers must be identified on first contact, and must accompany buying prospect on first showing to be allowed full fee participation. If this condition is not met, fee participation will be at sole discretion of Listing Broker, Bluestem Ranch Group.

This generational, family-owned ranch is 80% wooded and 20% open. Approximately 15 acres of the property is in improved variety Pecan Orchard. Though not currently in production, the trees are healthy and mature and allow for the possibility of future income from nut harvest.  In addition to the Pecan, there is an impressive array of Oaks and Elms throughout the ranch.

The ranch is currently utilized as a cow-calf operation and can support 27 animal units in normal rainfall years.  On the north end of the property there is a 40 acre Bermuda grass field ideal for grazing cattle.

The third is a unique artesian water well that flows into a stock tank.  This artesian well has flowed continuously for 30 years and speaks to the groundwater potential of the area.  Sandy Fork Creek borders the property to the south and west for approximately 1.2 miles. Though seasonal, you’ll find that this stretch of Sandy Fork Creek holds pools of water most of the time. The creek bottom area is a natural game corridor and is lined with a variety of large trees.
