General: In Kleberg County it’s not often that a unique place like El Rincόn Del Gullo, with so many diverse natural features, becomes available for sale. The property boasts over a½ mile of both sides of year-round Santa Gertrudis Creek as well as elevated ridgeline that features several premier home site options all with expansive views over the riparian area below. Though mostly unimproved, the property does have overhead power service along the western boundary line to an existing 40’ x 50’ metal barn. Electrical service at the barn has been upgraded to accommodate a RV or other temporary living space. Near the barn there’s a functional set of cattle working pens, a round pen, a water well with a submersible pump and a concrete water trough. The property is set-up for rotational grazing and is cross-fenced into three 40 acre traps. The perimeter fencing is low-fenced and in good condition. Vegetation consist of towering old-growth mesquite trees, shrub-grassland and riparian areas with abundant wildflowers during spring. Located at the end of “Cayo del Grullo”, this arm of Baffin Bay meets the same creek that runs through the King Ranch to create an amazing estuary that host many beautiful birds of the region. The creek serves as ideal habitat for a variety of native game species including Rio Grande turkey, javelina and bobcat. During normal rainfall years, the estuary serves as a wintering site for sandhill cranes, wood-storks, roseate spoonbills and other waterfowl. With its location in the Central Flyway, you can watch migrating birds come and go during spring and fall. This property has been a part of the annual Christmas Bird Count and a compete bird list is available upon request.
Summary: Owning both sides of year-round Santa Gertrudis Creek and elevated home sites offering long distance views, this property has diversity that’s hard to find in South Texas. With its current value being in the raw land and not in existing improvements, this property possesses all of the natural elements one would desire in creating their very own South Texas paradise. In addition, its location makes it convenient being only minutes from Kingsville and within 45 minutes of Corpus Christi.
