117 acres – Jim Wells County
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.
