La Codorniz Ranch is located in the Coastal Sandsheet region of South Texas known for its unique deep sand and Live Oak forest. More specifically its located in the northwest quadrant of Brooks County, 11 miles southwest of the town of Falfurrias. Falfurrias is the county seat and offers a variety of restaurants, motels, a feed store and an HEB. The ranch is 77 miles from Edinburg, 90 miles from Corpus, 178 from San Antonio and 287 miles from Houston.
Brooks County has a longstanding reputation of being one of the best quail areas in the state. Ranches here are tightly held and seldom come up for sale. This particular property as changed hands once in 6 decades.
La Codorniz is the perfect sized all-around hunting ranch. End-of-road privacy and the lack of hunting pressure has created a wildlife sanctuary within it’s boundaries. The ranch has not been hunted in several years and has never been commercially hunted or even leased. The well-balanced natural habitat and cover found throughout the ranch offers endless hunting opportunities for native game such as whitetail deer, bobwhite quail, dove, turkey and hogs. The owners have recently implemented a year-round supplemental protein feeding program that has improved and enhanced the native deer herd’s potential. The ranch has more topography than one would expect for the region and ranges from 215 to 275 above MSL with 2 hilltops offering 360 degree views over neighboring ranches.
Water service on the ranch is more than adequate with 2 recently completed water wells. The main well is 375 ft. deep and tested at 20 gpm. The second well is 150 ft. deep with a solar pump that tested at 8 gpm. There are 2 surface ponds on the property and each have water piped to them to supplement during dry times. The only structural improvement on the ranch is an attractive, recently constructed metal bardominium on a 30 x 80 concrete slab. Seller plans to issue a credit at closing so that buyer may customize the finish out any way they want. Most of the fencing on the ranch is new 5 strand barbwire with a metal T-post every 10ft. and a 4″ cedar post every 50ft. The west side boundary has good high fencing.
End of road privacy in the coastal sandsheet live oak forest region with solid infrastructure, mineral conveyance and a myriad of game make this offering worthy of serious consideration.
