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.
