510 acres – Jim Wells County

Long Ranch

Location:  The Long Ranch is located at the corner of CR 431 & CR 425 in Southwestern Jim Wells County. The tract lies about 4.8 miles west of HWY 281 and the town of Premont is approximately 4.5 miles to the Southeast.  According to the 2010 Census, Premont’s population is around 2,653. Premont is home to the basics such as gas stations, a few family owned restaurants & motels a Dollar General, Subway and a Dairy Queen. Falfurrias, a short 9 mile drive south, is where you will find the nearest HEB and Whataburger.

General: Ownership of the Long Ranch has been held by the same family for over 90 years.  The history of how the Seller’s father acquired the property is quite interesting. Equally as interesting is the story of a banker and developer named R.P. Halderman and his role in the creation of the town of Premont.

The Long Ranch’s extensive, buffelgrass pastureland is ideally suited for a cow-calf or stocker cattle operation. Soils are mostly Delfina Fine Sandy, which are suitable for cultivating crops, pasture, range, woodland or wildlife.  The property is perimeter fenced and cross fenced into 5 pastures each with 15” concrete water troughs. Fencing is primarily King Ranch square wire in good condition.  All pastures lead to a central gathering trap with wing to assist in shipping cattle.  The property’s contour is relatively flat with a few depressed areas that hold water during wet periods.  The property has frontage on 3 county roads, all of which are paved.  The extensive paved road frontage as well as the availability of electricity along county roads make future large tract subdivision a viable possibility.  The property is currently ag exempt with low taxes.

Water: Subsurface groundwater in this area is not an issue with water typically present from 90-137 ft. below surface. Wells drilled to this zone for domestic use test at 30-35 gpm.  With a pivot irrigation system on a neighboring property, it appears that irrigation quantity could be viable.  For more information concerning groundwater availability, rules and regulations please visit  https://brushcountrygcd.com/.  Near the NE corner of the property there is a water well outfitted with a submersible pump and pressure tank that supplies water to the troughs on the property.  There is a second, currently inoperable water well near the center of the property but the condition of this well and its functionality is unknown.  

Summary: I challenge you to find a more productive, turn-key cattle ranch in south Texas with the possibility of mineral ownership for $1,860/acre.  With low taxes and low cost of ownership, and possible ag lease income this offering is attractive to the investment buyers wanting to invest in a appreciating, stable asset with lease income potential.

Minerals: Sellers are willing to convey any and all owned mineral interest, if any, with an acceptable offer.

Price:  $949,000

117 acres – Jim Wells County
TLL Ranch

 

Location: The TLL Ranch is located on CR 432 in Southwestern Jim Wells County. The tract lies about 7 miles west of HWY 281 and 2 miles east of FM 1329. The town of Premont is approximately 7 miles to the Southeast. According to the 2010 Census, Premont’s population is around 2,653. Premont is home to the basics such as gas stations, a few family owned restaurants & motels a Dollar General, Subway and a Dairy Queen. Falfurrias, a short 9 mile drive south, is where you will find the nearest HEB and Whataburger.

General: The TLL Ranch has been owned by the Seller for 35 years and has not been hunted in over 20 years. With limited human impact/vehicular traffic the native landscape and ecosystem of has in turn flourished creating a refuge for the native plants and wildlife including deer, hogs, quail and dove.
The property has good contour and is mainly rectangular in shape with 1800+ feet of paved county road frontage. The eastern, road frontage portion of the tract is cleared and was in dryland crop production in the past but most recently planted in sunflower. The back or western portion of the ranch is incredibly dense, south Texas brush country with a solid canopy of mature mesquite, Huisache and towering Hackberry trees. A minor tributary of Jaboncillos Creek bisects the cleared portion of the property. The property’s perimeter is completely low-fenced in good condition.
Soils are mostly Runge Fine Sandy Loam, which are reddish and resemble the soils of more commonly found in Southeastern Duval County and Hebbronville area.

Water: Near the NE corner of the property there is a water well in need of repair and currently not functioning. With an overhead electrical line near, it seems this well could possibly be cleaned up and converted to a submersible pump. Though the topo map shows evidence of a small surface pond, there is no current pond or permanent water source on the property. Although no evidence of flooding has been observed by broker, a portion of the property is in FEMA’s Zone A or 100 year flood plain. From broker’s calculation this area seems to be approximately 22 acres.

Summary: Multi-generational family ownership and a multitude of opportunity make this offering attractive to anyone looking to invest in ranchland. Options include hunting, farming, cattle grazing, hay production, full-time, private residence close to town, or investment. The ranch is unrestricted, not part of a subdivision, and in a quiet area with no small tract subdivisions present.

Minerals: Sellers are willing to convey any and all owned mineral interest, if any, with an acceptable offer.

Price: $234,000

Circle Bar Blue Ranch

445 acres – Gonzales County

 

LOCATION: The impressive Circle Bar Blue Ranch is located in south-central Gonzales County, less than 5 miles south of the historic town of Gonzales. The front gate is a 75 minute drive from both Austin and San Antonio with Houston being about 2 ¼ hours to the east.

IMPROVEMENTS: As you enter the ranch’s front gates you are welcomed by a pastoral feeling courtesy of grassy, oak-studded hilltops that descend into dark blue lakes. Overlooking this manicured front pasture is an envelope of first-class building improvements consisting of a ranch office, main home, horse barn with apartment and a covered arena.

Main Home
The 2500 sqft 3 bedroom/3 bath main home is a modern farmhouse that is comfortable and cowboy chic while possessing a subtle elegant flair. The home was built and designed by an accomplished interior designer whose skill and talents are showcased within its charming walls.  Perhaps the most interesting feature of the home is the formal dining room.  It was crafted from a grain bin that was moved to the ranch and is now attached to the house.  It boasts a massive iron chandelier salvaged from a Philadelphia train station complimented with Venetian Crystal sconces. The large master bedroom and bath create a comfortable retreat and include a soaking tub and steam shower.    

Horse Barn w/ Apartment
Centrally located on the top of a hill is where you will find the well-planned, site built horse barn with 20+ concrete stalls. Multiple large roll-up bay doors and wide drive-through aisles allow for a spacious feel.  There is also a centrally located tack room as well as a dedicated vet area with a hot/cold horse washing station.  Attached to the barn is a +/-1,000 sqft 1 bedroom/1 bath apartment designed and constructed in a similar fashion as the main home and finished out entirely with reclaimed materials which gives the space a western elegant aura.

Arena
Adjacent to the barn are cattle pens and a covered cutting horse training arena designed and currently utilized by a Hall of Fame cutting horse trainer.  You can rest assure knowing no detail was overlooked in the design of this facility.

LAND: This area of Gonzales County is not typically known for its topography, yet traveling the ranch from one end to the other you will experience nearly 100 feet of elevation change.  Cottle Creek traverses the ranch creating an expansive canyon that serves as prime, un-touched wildlife habitat. Throughout the Cottle Creek valley you will also find an impressive array of towering hardwoods including Live Oak, Post Oak, Burr Oak, Cedar Elm, Pecan and Sycamore. 

There is over 45 acres of grass field on the ranch that could easily be put in hay production or row-crop production.  Currently these fields produce a remarkable amount of under-utilized forage without any application of weed killer or fertilizer.       

Having been rarely hunted in the past 20 year the Circle Bar Blue is teeming with wild game. A mature native whitetail buck in excess of 150 b/c has recently been spotted along with, hogs, bobcat and other native species in huntable quantities.  There are a total of 4 lakes/ponds on the ranch several of which are stocked with bass.
The Circle Bar Blue Ranch has over 1 ½ miles of Guadalupe River frontage. This frontage is a mixture of accessible gravel beach as well as high river bank. Fishing and recreation is rated as excellent. 

MINERALS: The Seller owns approximately ½ of the mineral estate and will convey 1/8 of owned minerals at closing.  Property is subject to an oil & gas lease.  There is no oil & gas production nor oil & gas surface equipment on the property.  Please call Listing Broker for more information.
