2,278 acres located in Bee County 10 minutes North of Beeville, TX. This property is one of the most scenic ranches we have ever seen with a lot of unique character. The ranch has hundreds of big live oaks, elms, and fabulous South Texas brush. The ranch is gently rolling with lots of heavy cover which gives you a feel of a place that is twice the size. This ranch is extremely well watered and has great improvements maintained in excellent condition.
LOCATION: Approximately 8 miles North of Beeville, TX. Access from Beeville, is 6 miles North – East on Hwy. 59, then two miles North on a paved county road that dead ends near the gate of the ranch. The location gives you the best possible combination of privacy and convenience to town. The ranch is just far enough from 59 that it is quiet and you will not hear any traffic noise on the ranch.
WILDLIFE: For 7 years the current owner has managed the ranch for free roaming wildlife management under low fence under the guidance of a TPWD MLD permit. There is a 4 acre high fence release pen centrally located in the property where the owner has released 60 bred does out of 200 class whitetail genetics. The 60 does were released over a 4 year period between 2010-1014. The does were held in the release pen until the fawns were born to increase the odds that they would reside on the property. For the 2017 season, the owner believes there will be 3-4 bucks that will score over 170.
The ranch is also loaded with turkey, lots of quail, dove and wild hogs. The ranch is covered in some of the best heavy high protein brush we have ever seen. Multiple food plots, protein feed stations, and plenty of water make the wildlife flourish on this property.
WATER: The ranch is extremely well watered with multiple water wells, ponds, and over two miles of Medio Creek bisects the middle of the ranch.
Water wells include 3 solar wells, 1 windmill, and 1 electric well at the headquarters. The solar wells pump 10-25 GPM into wildlife ponds. The house well is 180’ deep and is currently equipped to pump 40 GPM. The quality of water in all wells is excellent drinking water. If the new owner desired, large volume water well could be drilled on the property for irrigation or maintenance of a large lake with two good locations available for lake development.
Medio Creek passes through the middle of the ranch for over two miles and holds water year round. The creek is very scenic and holds miles of big surface water. The owner has left the creek undisturbed in its natural state as a big wildlife corridor. The creek offers additional lake development potential with the installation of concrete dams.
IMPROVEMENTS: The ranch is very well improved and has been maintained in top quality condition. Improvements include:
Rustic Ranch home constructed in 2012 with approximately 2,762 sf + porches and decks. The home was built with high quality materials and made to blend in with the scenery. Some amenities of the home include an alarm system, lawn sprinkler system, and outdoor gas barbecue cooker under roof, 25’ diameter, and 5’ deep pila equipped and designed as a swimming pool.
The pool was designed to be drained when you leave the ranch to reduce maintenance. The owner plans to leave the home moderately furnished with beds, sofas, upholstered chairs, dining table, side tables, kitchen appliances, and washer and dryer.
The driveway and parking areas around the house have been paved to eliminate dust.
Also at the headquarters there is a detached gun room, well house, 40’x 60’ enclosed steel barn. The barn is equipped with a tool room, work benches, deer cleaning station with electric wenches, and an ice maker. Behind the barn you will find a 60’ x 20’ implement shed and a well maintained orchard with 70 olive trees and other fruit trees.
Other Improvements include:
5 wildlife food plots totaling approximately 50 acres.
35 mile of improved grass covered roads.
7 large 15’ fiberglass deer blinds.
1 large ground blind.
7 corn feeders located at each blind.
5 free choice protein feeders
MINERALS: The ranch has approximately 25% mineral interest under 1,000 acres, 12.5% on 900 acres, and no minerals on 300 acres. There are no mineral leases or production on the ranch.
BROKER OPINION: What a great all around place! Overall this ranch has a super clean appearance and has a feel of a place that is double in size. There are no transmission lines, drive through easements, cell towers, and the owner has never seen any illegal immigrant traffic. When you get on the ranch and close the gate, you feel like you are far detached from civilization. It is also a very rare find to have a low fenced ranch where you can grow big deer with mostly large neighbors. As you drive around the ranch the scenery seems to change constantly and you never get bored. The giant live oaks scattered around this property offer many additional areas that could be manicured and enhanced.
