4D Ranch       

623 acres – Jim Wells County

SOLD

 

LOCATION:  A mile south of Lake Corpus Christi and 3 miles north of Orange Grove in northeastern Jim Wells County lies the 40+ year family owned 4D Ranch.  The main gate to the ranch is only 42 miles northwest of Corpus Christi and 116 miles south of San Antonio. Conservation minded improvements and a continual dedication to management have created a legacy property one must experience to appreciate.

LAND: The topography on the 4D Ranch is unique for the area with 100+ ft. elevation changes and long-range views from over 80 acres of hilltop centrally located mesas.  An exceptional road and sendero system open up the dense vegetation and keeps biological balance by promoting new forb growth.  Several extensive drainages on the ranch create areas of tall “forest-like” tree growth and dense vegetation creating superb wildlife habitat.  Vegetation consist of a variety of high protein brush including mesquite, persimmon, guajillo, blackbrush, brazil, cenizo and desert yaupon. Adding to the ranch’s diversity is 88 acres of native grass field ideal for cattle grazing.

Hunting on the 4D has been a primary recreation enjoyed by family only and never commercially leased.  Improving upon only native genetics, a successful wildlife management program has been in place for decades accompanied by a year-round supplemental feeding program.  In addition to whitetail deer, turkey and pigs, it’s not uncommon to flush several coveys of bobwhite quail. With the help of mother-nature this year and due to the lack of hunting pressure on the ranch the quail have flourished.

WATER: Water on the 4D Ranch includes ¾ mile of Penitas Creek frontage, 1.3 miles of Hobbs Hollow, a 2.5 acre bass fishing/recreational lake and 3 water wells all with electric submersible pumps.

Penitas Creek creates the property’s northwestern boundary. This creek bottom has a “wild” feel with its heavily wooded banks and towering bull Mesquite, Hackberry and Elm trees.  Although the brush is big and tight in this part of the ranch, access is easy on an established road system that winds along the creek and fence line, both on the high-bank side of the creek and out of the floodway.

Hobbs Hollow is secondary drainage that flows in a northeasterly direction through the entire ranch and into nearby Lake Corpus Christi.  Centrally located on the ranch and on the Hobbs Hollow drainage is where you will find the emerald blue, deep 2.5 acre lake stocked for fishing and ideal for recreation.  This private lake is a highlight of the ranch and the perfect setting for summer fun and get togethers with family and friends.

There are 3 water wells on the 4D, each with an electric submersible pump. Two of these wells are located near the headquarters area and the third is located at a secondary set of cattle pens near the southeast corner of the ranch. One well at the headquarters that supplements the lake has been tested at over 100 gpm.

IMPROVEMENTS: Headquarters on the 4D is centrally located in the heart of the ranch near the banks of Hobbs Hollow. The modest yet functional improvements consists of a 3 bedroom/2 bath ranch home with front porch and outdoor entertainment area, a large pull-through equipment barn, a set of pipe cattle working pens and dog kennels. This improvement area is manicured and well maintained with mature oak trees and a lush, green St. Augustine grass yard. Rain or shine, access to the headquarters is quick and comfortable on the 3500 ft. limestone base road and a concrete bridge over Hobbs Hollow.

Not often does a legacy ranch of this caliber come to market.  With its prime location, well-designed infrastructure and incredible natural features, the 4D Ranch may be the best all-around ranch of its size within a 45 minute drive of Corpus Christi.

Circle Bar Blue Ranch

445 acres – Gonzales County

SOLD

 

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.

FINANCIAL:   $4,995,000.  Seller to provide standard owners title policy and existing survey.  This Property is co-listed with David O. Faust – 512.940.3300

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.

Prieto Creek Ranch

197 acres – Atascosa County

SOLD

 

LOCATION: In a quiet corner of eastern Atascosa County near the Wilson County line and only 42 miles south of downtown lies the Prieto Creek Ranch.  Pleasanton is 15 miles to the west, Floresville is 18 miles to the east and the small community of McCoy is about 5 miles to the south.  Access to the Prieto is from Treys Creek Road, a quiet county-maintained road rarely driven by anyone other than local property owners.

LAND: This side of Atascosa county has a highly productive soil composition and historically receives higher rainfall totals creating exceptional ag-use value.  Analyzing the primary uses of the neighboring properties gives a good indication of just how diverse and productive this area is. To the east is row crop and hay production. To the west is a cow-calf livestock producer and to the north is a hunting/grazing combination ranch.  All contiguous neighbors are similar or larger in size with no small tract subdivision.  The ranch is rectangular in shape, 2460 ft. wide and 3500 ft deep. The entire perimeter is low fenced w/ 5 strand barbed wire.

Seasonal Prieto Creek enters the ranch near the northeast corner and meanders south the entire length of the ranch. Though seasonal, the creek holds shallow pools of water most of the year.  Flanked by huge Live Oak and Elm trees, the creek bottom would be considered the “good stuff” by any outdoor enthusiast and what makes this property truly unique. A casual creek hike is sure to produce that “magical” feel you get when you are surrounded by raw natural beauty.

Wildlife management and hunting on the ranch is the main event. Having been used for cattle grazing in the past and not hunted in over a decade, this property is loaded with turkey, deer, pigs, varmint and dove.  The creek bottom is a natural travel corridor that funnels game onto the ranch and the diverse south Texas brush on the ranch provides the essential cover that these animals need. In addition to the creek there are 2 stock ponds on either end of the ranch. Ideal for fishing and dove hunting, these tanks are assets that create additional recreational opportunities. According to a reputable source, in the past 18 years these tanks have been dry once. This property is one of the “game-iest” places of this size this Broker has ever seen. Newly installed feeding stations, deer blinds and concrete wildlife water troughs make it turn-key for a buyer wanting a diverse hunting property loaded with critters.

IMPROVEMENTS: Though void of structural improvements, there is a newly constructed entrance, custom gate and 16 ft. wide limestone base road.  This road leads to an interior, private homesite area surrounded by huge Bull mesquite and live oak trees. The “heavy lifting” of bringing in utilities for your vertical improvement has been taken care of. Underground electricity has been installed to the homesite as well as an underground McCoy Water Supply water line.  There are (2) New HB hunting blinds, and (2) wildlife feed stations each consisting of (1) 600 lbs. stand & fill corn and (1) 1000 lbs. protein Texas Wildlife Supply feeder. These feed stations are fenced to protect your feed dollars. There is also 3500+ feet of underground waterline supplying water to 3 new concrete wildlife troughs strategically located throughout the property. Just in case the creek dries up, or the permanent tanks dry up, or if you don’t like the taste of the crystal clear McCoy WSC water, there is an additional shallow water well that could potentially be put back into operation. To say the least, the Prieto Creek Ranch is well watered!

If you are in the market for a cool hunting place minutes from downtown with primo south Texas brush, oaks as big as your kitchen table with tons of critters running around, you need to come see the Prieto Creek Ranch.

FINANCIAL:  $4,563/acre or $899,000 Listing Broker in Owner. Owner/Broker to provide survey and owners title policy. Surface offering only, Owner/Broker does not own any minerals. Not currently leased, no oilfield activity/equipment.

Information contained herein is med reliable, but is not warranted by Broker is subject to change, errors and/or omissions, prior sale and withdrawal from market.  Buyers are urged to verify representations on their own regarding the usefulness and value of the property for a given purpose.  Property is sold “as is where is, with all faults…and without warranty other than that of title.”  Showings by appointment only with Bluestem Ranch Group only.

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.

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.

LOCATION:   In the heart of the Hill Country, 7 miles SW of Bandera, 60 miles NW of downtown San Antonio and 30 miles from Kerrville. Boerne is a quick 30 minute trip to the east. This property is located over the Trinity Aquifer on the southeastern edge of the Edwards Plateau.

GENERAL: This well managed sportsman’s paradise is jam-packed with some of the best habitat, natural features and hunting the region has to offer.

Wide, private valleys have been selectively cleared of cedar allowing the native grasses, shrubs and tree species to flourish. Flanking these valleys are densely wooded, soaring ridgelines and accessible hilltops offering forever views in all directions.

Over a mile of both sides of seasonal, rock-bottom Middle Verde Creek is on the eastern boundary of the ranch. This serves as watershed for one of the property’s recreational highlights: a clear, deep six-acre lake with lighted pier. This permanent water feature is home to healthy populations of largemouth bass, catfish and waterfowl.

Hunting on the 4L Ranch is incredible where spotting whitetail in excess of 180 inches and axis over 30 inches is commonplace. Conveying with the sale are seven executive tower blinds and feeders strategically located throughout the property and five isolated protein feeding stations in low pressure areas.  Exotics include axis, sika, red stag, blackbuck antelope and nubian ibex. Each of the last six hunting seasons have produced four or more whitetail in the 170–225 inch Boone and Crockett range. All of these trophies were large, main framed typicals, most having forked G-2’s, which has become a tell-tale genetic trait of trophy whitetail on the ranch.

The improvement compound consists of three residential structures, all a stone’s throw from one another, with a centralized indoor/outdoor kitchen and party room perfect for entertaining family, friends and clients. The main home is a 1,400-square-foot three-bedroom, two-bath rock veneered modular home. Nearby is a three-bedroom, two-bath mobile home currently used as a hunter’s cabin/guest quarters. In addition, there is a recently remodeled historic ranch home that dates back to the early 1900s and a 40’x40′ covered, concrete-floored implement barn that protects the ranch vehicles and equipment.

Equestrian Improvements include a five-stall horse barn, a tack room with an oscillating saddle wall and a set of pens. There’s also a horse walker, a 150’x300’ top-rail pipe and cedar stay arena with a round pen and a ride-up cantina/bunkhouse with half-bath.

SUMMARY:If you’ve been searching for your very own private Hill Country paradise, call Bluestem Ranch Group today. We think you’ll agree that the 4L Ranch is the best valued hunting/recreational ranch currently on the market in Bandera County.

TDW Ranch

925.37 Acres – Kinney County

Location: One of the many highlights of the TDW Ranch is its close proximity to the town of Brackettville. With Brackettville being just 6 miles away, groceries, lodging for overflow guest, and access to restaurants become very convenient. Brackettville is also home to Fort Clark Springs, a 2700 acre gated resort and leisure living community that plays host to permanent residence, winter Texans as well as visitors from all over the world. The Las Moras Spring, also located within in Fort Clark, is a true sight to see and a significant attraction for the town. Located south of HWY 90 in southern Kinney County, this ranch is less than an hour’s drive from Del Rio and about 2.5 hours west of San Antonio.

General: The TDW Ranch is rectangular in shape and has about 1.8 miles of frontage along FM 3348 or Las Moras Road. This particular area of southern Kinney County is made up of predominately large, family owned cattle and hunting ranches. In fact, this property’s only contiguous neighbor is a 7,000+ acre ranch adjoining the subject to the north and west. A branch of Las Moras Creek traverses the entire length of the property for over 2 miles. This dynamic bottomland, blanketed with huge oak trees, is a sight to see and adds topography as well as vegetation not typical of the area. Not only is this oak covered bottom excellent habitat for native wildlife, it also differentiates this offering from others currently on the market. The current owner has utilized the ranch as a well-managed family hunting retreat and for the past 5 years have fed protein year-round in order to supplement the deer herd. On any given day you, you will most likely see whitetail, several coveys of bob-white quail, and turkey that roost along the creek. Improvements located at the ranch’s headquarters include a 3 bedroom/2 bath mobile home, a water well with submersible pump, and a recently built, enclosed equipment barn on concrete slab that also functions as a game cleaning station. There is also multiple RV hook-ups in the improvement compound to accommodate additional hunting groups. To ensure year-round water, even in times of drought, there is a large tank on the property that can be filled by a waterline from the well located at the headquarters.

Summary: Being 6 miles from Brackettville, TDW Ranch is game-managed paradise offering an attractive balance of South Texas brush country along with Live Oak covered creek bottoms. It’s also a turn-key offering that’s set-up and ready to be enjoyed by the next outdoor hunting enthusiast.

Agua Poquita West

2173 Acres – Duval County

Location/History:  Agua Poquita West is located on HWY 359 between Hebbronville and Benavides in southern Duval County.  Laredo is a 1hr 20 minute drive to the west and Corpus is short 1 ½  hour drive to the east. The property is not located within the Eagle Ford Shale fairway and there is no oilfield activity on the ranch.

Having been tightly held in the same family for generations, this South Texas gem is being offered for the first time in over 80 years.  Believed to be once a part of what was the +/- 22,000 acre Ball Ranch, the Agua Poquita West is located in an area of South Texas brimming with ranching history. 

The immediate area is dominated by large cattle and hunting operations. Contiguous neighbors include a +/- 10,000 acre ranch to the south, +/- 6,000 acre ranch to the north and a +/-3,300 acre ranch to the east. 

General:  The property is rectangular in shape, with about 2.3 miles of frontage along HWY 359.  The entire western boundary along HWY 359 is high fenced as well as the entire northern boundary.   In addition to the West and North being completely high fenced, there is +/- 1,000 ft of high fencing along the southern boundary as well. The high fence along the highway was intentionally built 12 ft inside the surveyed property boundary to add privacy.

Over the years, the owners have primarily utilized the ranch as part of a rotational cattle grazing operation.  The ranch is currently being rested, and there is abundant native grasses found throughout the property.  There is an exceptional road and sendero system that opens up the ranch and keeps biological balance by promoting new forb growth.  Vegetation consist of a variety of high protein brush including mesquite, persimmon, guajillo, blackbrush, brazil, cenizo and desert yaupon.

The deer hunting has not been leased commercially, and the natural genetics in this part of Duval County are touted as some of the best in the state.  There has been a successful on-going wildlife management program in practice for over a decade, employing only native genetics.  In addition to whitetail deer, it’s not uncommon to flush numerous coveys of bobwhite quail. With the help of mother-nature last year and due to the lack of hunting pressure on the ranch, these birds have thrived.  Being located within the Special White-winged Dove area, hunters will have ample opportunity to sharpen their wing shooting skills by partaking in any or all of the 4 different dove season options.  In addition to game species, hogs, javelina, and a variety of other varmint call this place home.
