Wild River Ranch  

350 ACRES – LEON CO. 

This uniquely appointed, stunningly beautiful acreage with a year-round flowing creek and lake is a must-see. Ideally located midway between Houston and Dallas with quick and easy freeway access to both metros. Just off paved County Road 112 between Centerville and Madisonville, this ranch works as either a second home or full-time residence.
Follow the manicured trails through 350 acres of rolling recreational hunting and grazing land, to discover custom-builds for living and entertaining, livestock management, storage and more. Wild River Ranch has it all: breath-taking vistas and wooded hideaways that offer hunting, fishing, canoeing, hiking, trail riding, camp-fire serenity, the true Texas way of life.

LUXURY RANCH LIVING
As you enter through the remote-controlled custom front gate and travel along the ½ mile oak tree-lined drive, you are greeted by an enclave of tastefully designed rustic cedar and tin buildings. First, a custom 2 bedroom/1 bath home. Next, the picture-perfect custom-appointed barndominium which contains 5 immaculate horse stalls and a private 2 bedroom/1 bath residence. Next is an enormous multi-use building, currently used as an oversized 5-stall equipment barn, large indoor/outdoor entertainment facility and indoor storage area.
First, the 1200 sq ft. private home has an attractive front porch with wood, stucco and stone exterior construction and a metal roof. The interior is an open concept featuring wood floors, granite counters and a large living/kitchen area with a wood burning stove. The grass yard is well manicured and complemented by landscaping and raised gardening beds. Its attractive ranch-style fence is both beautiful and functional.
Next, the barndominium features a concrete-floored, wide center breezeway with 5 large horse stalls and a climate-controlled tack room on one side, and a 2 bedroom/1 bath residence on the other. The living quarters feature wood walls and ceilings, tile flooring, stainless appliances, gas cook range, and walk-in shower. Double front and back patios provide space for grilling, fire pit, dining, hot tub, bar and more. With Wi-Fi internet and app-controlled systems, the 2 structures jointly function as a private owners’ retreat and guest house combo.
Then walking distance from the barndominium—is a 48’ x 96’ multi-use facility with finished first and second floor areas for entertaining, living and storage. The nearly 800 sq. ft. downstairs party room is paneled with picturesque reclaimed barnwood for a cozy, rustic western feel. Open its double barn doors and take the party outside to the shaded “beer garden,” bulb-lit for evening entertainment and perfect for a fire pit.  The building also includes a large, covered equipment parking/storage area with 5 oversized bays on a concrete slab. Upstairs, there’s 16’ x 96’ finished loft—currently utilized as storage—but easily converted to additional living quarters if needed. This loft has staircase access from the party room as well from the equipment barn.

NATURAL RESOURCES
Perhaps the highlight of Wild River Ranch is the variety and quantity of naturally available water. There is 1.4 miles of year-round Boggy Creek frontage, a tributary to the Trinity River, in addition to 3 stock ponds and one fishing lake that is 7 acres when full. Southeast Water Supply Corp. provides clean safe water to all of the homes, barns and pens.
The improvement area is contained within its own private area. The bulk of the ranch’s acreage is a combination of open grazing land and heavily wooded areas where native wildlife including deer, hogs, quail and waterfowl flourish. The entire ranch is low-fenced with large neighbors as well as cross fenced into 3 pastures. Dominant tree species include Oak, basswood, sycamore, pecan, walnut, pine, yaupon, mulberry and cedar elm.
The rolling terrain and substantial elevation changes are above average for the area and must be experienced to be fully appreciated. In addition, there is stunning hilltop, lake view located toward the south end of the acreage in a truly pastoral setting that must be seen to be appreciated. It’s a picture-perfect setting for a homesite, a party pavilion or private tranquility.

LIVESTOCK MANAGEMENT
Located between the house and the barndominium are new, professional-grade cattle working pens. These pens are 72’ x 40’, constructed of pipe and lighted. The working chute is on a concrete slab and covered, for gathering and working cattle in any weather.
The current cow-calf operation consists of 80 pair that rotationally graze three cross-fenced pastures, each with its own access to water. With a focus on grass-fed beef, the predominant grass cover on the ranch is a Bahia and Bermuda mix which keeps cattle well-fed, even in drought years. This well-established, optimal grass mixture can also be a prolific hay crop for the owners with an average yield of 220 round bales per cutting in a normal rainfall year.

Listing Price: $4,595,000. Surface offering only, the Seller does not believe any minerals are owned. 2021 taxes were approximately $3,500. Property holds an agricultural exemption. No oil/gas production and no leases. This property is co-listed by John Lynd w/ Bluestem Ranch Group and David O. Faust, Broker.

Lago Vista Ranch  

1200 ACRES – LIVE OAK CO. 

SOLD

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. 

SOLD

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. The second well is located on the southwest quadrant of the ranch and supplements a tank and an older set of cattle pens. The ranch is completely low fenced with large neighbors to the north, south and west. Most exterior fences are in good condition. There are over 10 miles of interior ranch roads making the property feel much larger than it is.

The owners have a long history of managing the native game on the ranch and have blind and feed stations located throughout the property.  Predominant tree species are Live Oak and Mesquite. Approximately 200 acres of the ranch is more open due to fires that impacted the region 7-10 years ago. In this area the native grasses are waist high and re-growth brush species have flourished adding diversification to the otherwise heavier brush balance of the property.  End of road privacy in the unique coastal sandsheet live oak region with a myriad of game make this turn-key offering appealing.

Seller to provide owners title policy and survey. No leases, production or oilfield traffic.

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.

 Just four miles east of Rocksprings and 2 miles west of HWY 41 lies the A.R. Rocksprings Ranch. This property has been operated as a hunting & grazing ranch for the past 100 years. Considered gentle for the area, the ranch bears a resemblance to the divide country to the east. The selective clearing of cedar has created lush meadows with above average grass cover throughout the balance of the property. An all-weather interior road system allows for 2-wheel drive access over the entire property.

These two boundaries represent about 30% of the perimeter. The ranch is cross-fenced into 5 pastures with a few smaller fenced traps and 2 sets of working pens.

The ranch is currently enrolled in MLDP with on-going management practices and a year-round feeding program. The large numbers of free-range axis and whitetail deer along with adequate turkey and dove numbers make the ranch an ideal family or corporate hunting property.

The 2400 sqft classic style main house has been recently updated and is both comfortable and functional.
