Boone Pickens' Mesa Vista Ranch: Over 100 Square Miles of Prime Eastern Texas Panhandle Ranch with Outstanding Improvements
#TX230169
Pampa
, 79065
Roberts County
64,809.00 acres
With the recent passing of Boone Pickens, the listing price of the Mesa Vista Ranch has been reduced from the original price of $250,000,000 to $220,000,000.

LOCATION: The Mesa Vista Ranch is located in Roberts County in the Eastern Texas Panhandle. The ranch is located about 30 miles north of Pampa, Texas, and approximately 85 miles northeast of Amarillo.

ACRES: 64,809 +/- Acres

HISTORY: In 1971, Boone purchased approximately 2,900 acres along the south side of the Canadian River in Roberts County, Texas.

Over the years, Boone began to assemble additional adjoining land positioned along the Canadian River corridor, and today the Mesa Vista Ranch comprises over 100 square miles of prime Eastern Texas Panhandle ranch land.

As Boone's assemblage continued, he spent millions and millions of dollars to make Mesa Vista one of the best improved ranches in the United States. He used cutting edge conservation practices to enhance the wildlife on the property.

Today Boone proudly boasts that the Mesa Vista Ranch is, "the world's best quail hunting."

PROPERTY DESCRIPTION: As Boone expanded his holdings, his focus always remained centered along the Canadian River. Today, the Mesa Vista Ranch stretches approximately 25 miles along the south side of the Canadian River. This lush river bottom land creates the centerpiece for the property, but the ranch features an unmatched variety of land types ranging from rolling sand hills to elevated ridges, mesa points and gently rolling, open prairie lands. The river bottom and numerous major drainages support abundant massive cottonwood trees, as well as willows, hackberry trees and others. Much of the river bottom is sub-irrigated and suitable for native hay production. Live spring water is found throughout several of the major drainages.

In an effort to enhance wildlife on the property, over the years, Boone has been a leader in conservation practices that are now followed by many other sportsmen in the country. As a testament to Boone's conservation efforts, in 2008 he was named the recipient of the prestigious Park Cities Quail Unlimited Lifetime Sportsman Award.

Boone maintains a small cow herd on the ranch, 400-500 cows Boone has placed over 1,000 quail feeders and numerous deer feeders on the ranch. He has created a number of food plot areas and added a network of buried waterlines with small water outlets to create wet areas for quail.

LODGE COMPOUND: The Lodge, along with multiple support structures is located in a manicured, tree covered "park-like" setting. It is common to view whitetail deer and turkey in the mornings and afternoons, with turkey roosting in the trees in the late evening. This Lodge Compound has been the major gathering area for Boone's family and guests over the years. It has served an important role as a place where corporate heads have met to discuss and craft multi-million-dollar business transactions, politicians and large donors have gathered for political events. Few if any facilities can match the beauty of the Lodge Compound.

Initial construction on the Lodge began in 1988, with numerous updates and additions added over the years. Presently, the Lodge itself comprises in excess of 25,000 square feet with an additional approximately 10,000 square feet of porches and patio areas.

Surrounding the Lodge is significant landscaping, in-ground sprinkler systems, and underground electrical service. Adding to the ambiance of the Lodge are numerous bronze sculptures tastefully positioned on the grounds. In addition to the Lodge and support structures, the compound features a lighted tennis court, a skeet/trap range, and a small golf course with two fairways and greens and nine tee boxes.

The Family House, which was completed in 2009, is located west of the Main Lodge. This house is a two-story with a third floor lounging and viewing room. The Family House contains over 6,000 square feet of living area and approximately 2,500 square feet of porches and patios.

The Pub is located north of the Family House and is a two-story structure containing approximately 2,250 square feet of air-conditioned area.

The Gun Room is a freestanding, single-story structure containing over 400 square feet. This building was constructed in 2005 and features a lounge area, bathroom, and kitchenette.

The Gate House, adjacent to the golf course, is a single family, two-story residence with partial basement. This house has approximately 2,300 square feet of living area, an attached two-car garage, and a deck area.

In 2007 Boone constructed a charming Chapel located on the north end of the Lodge Compound area. This chapel is situated along the banks of a flowing creek and lake area. Adjacent to the Chapel is the Memory Garden, which was constructed in 2014. There are pergolas and a beautiful stair-cased waterfall feature behind the structure.

In addition to the above, the Lodge Compound includes other support structures such as storage buildings and the Hilltop House, which is a children's play house. Overall, the Lodge Compound area is the most user-friendly facility on the ranch. It is designed to house large groups for entertaining or business functions.

LAKE HOUSE: Boone's Lake House has been featured in Architectural Digest Magazine and Cowboys and Indians Magazine. The Lake House contains approximately 11,500 square feet of living area and over 3,800 square feet of porches and patios. The front entry door was originally the front door to Bing Crosby's home.

The upper level of the home features a large living/great room with fireplace, dining area, master bedroom and bath, 1 1/2 bathrooms, kitchen, utility room, and elevator. A spiral staircase with stone imported from France leads to the lower level where there are two guest bedrooms, three bathrooms, wine cellar and tasting room, office, exercise room, utility room, cedar closet, mechanical room, and storm/safe room.

Outdoor balcony railings are bronze and all balconies and porch areas overlook astonishing water features, such as lakes, ponds, waterfalls, and aqueducts. The landscaping, topography features, and water enhancements make the Lake House truly "fit for a king."

AIRPORT AND HANGAR: The airport is located on the western portion of the ranch. The runway is approximately 6,000 feet long and 100 feet wide. The airport facility was designed and built with FAA approval and meets all of their requirements and regulations.

Approach lights are installed along the runway. The runway itself is constructed of one-foot thick concrete. This airport runway is designed to handle most any size private aircraft.

Adjacent to the runway is a 52,600-square foot concrete tarmac, which connects the airport to the hangar. The hangar facility contains approximately 25,000 square feet with epoxy coated concrete floor. It features a heated electric hangar door opening system, an attractive lounge and restroom area downstairs and a two-bedroom, two-bathroom pilot's apartment upstairs.

The entire airport complex is located within an 8-foot-high game fence constructed of 2 1/2 inch steel posts with heavy gauge net wire. In addition, the facility is equipped with a standby 350KW generator system for auxiliary power.

DOG KENNEL: The Dog Kennel is located east of the Lodge complex, between the Lodge and the highway. The Kennel contains approximately 11,000 square feet of usable kennel area, with approximately 3,600 feet being enclosed and air conditioned. There are 40 chain-link dog pens, 20 on each side of a concrete center alleyway.

The Kennel is equipped with full office facilities, a large meat processing-center. The facility includes a veterinary lab, upper level storage, overhead crane and bathroom.

WATER FEATURES: The Canadian River itself generally forms the north boundary of the ranch for a distance of approximately 25 miles. This river bottom is wide and fertile with a shallow water table. In some areas, standing pockets of water are common and portions of the river bottom are sub-irrigated. In the early 2000's Boone began a massive water enhancement project, likely never before conceived or duplicated by a private citizen. By dredging and building a chain of dams, waterfalls, lakes, and other water enhancements, Boone created possibly the largest individual water park ever envisioned. In addition to the countless lakes and ponds, he created a flowing, man-made creek called "Boone's Creek," which basically parallels the Canadian River. By dredging into the standing water table in the Canadian River bottom, this creek was formed. Boone, however, was not satisfied with standing water in the creek and wanted ever flowing running water throughout the creek bottom. With the use of well water injected into the creek, Boone's Creek flows several thousand gallons per minute throughout this stretch of roughly 12 miles of creeks, lakes, waterfalls and ponds, all of which are man-made. With a system of pumps and pipelines, much of this water can be recirculated and used over and over. Without question, Boone has created an unmatched oasis in the Texas Panhandle.

WILDLIFE: The Mesa Vista Ranch supports a variety of wildlife. Whitetail deer thrive in the productive creek bottom areas and mule deer are found throughout the sandhills, broken ridges, and mesa points on the southeast side of the ranch. Aoudad are also viewed from time to time in this rougher portion of the property. Antelope are found on the open plains country on the southwest side of the ranch. Besides quail, dove are also abundant and water fowl are seasonally present on many of the lakes. Hundreds and hundreds of turkeys are common throughout the tree-covered bottom lands. Most all of the lakes have been stocked with a variety of fish, and fishing is reported to be excellent.

The southern portion of the Mesa Vista Ranch is improved with pivot sprinkler systems and irrigation wells. Portions of this land are planted in a combination of wheat and millet, providing outstanding habitat for pheasant. All in all, with the water features, varying terrain, and conservation measures in place on the Mesa Vista Ranch, it would be hard to find a better recreational property in this area of Texas.

RANCH RESOURCES: Roberts County is known to have prolific saturated thickness of quality Ogallala ground water, along with substantial oil and gas resources.

The Mesa Vista Ranch is located in an area of prolific quality ground water, being in the Ogallala Water Formation. Over the years, hundreds of thousands of acres of water rights have been sold in Roberts County for municipal water purposes. Recent commercial water sales in the area indicate that water rights have a commercial value in the range of $400 - $500 per acre.

As previously discussed, Boone acquired the Mesa Vista Ranch in a series of purchases over the years. Boone obtained water rights in the earlier purchases, but in more recent years, as he acquired adjoining land, the commercial water rights were already sold, due to their commercial value. Overall, Boone owns approximately 42,000 acres of water rights, which will convey with the sale. This is considered to be an extremely valuable asset.

In addition to this water resource, minerals are also considered to be a valuable resource in Roberts County. Like the water, Boone obtained a portion of the minerals on the earlier land purchases, but as he expanded to the east and west in more recent years, he was unable to obtain minerals with these acquisitions.

There is scattered oil and gas activity on the Mesa Vista Ranch. All of Boone's owned mineral interests will convey. In 2015, Boone's oil and gas royalty income totaled approximately $2,560,000. In 2016, with oil and gas prices declining, the total royalty income dropped to approximately $771,000. For the first nine months of 2017 the royalty income is approximately $541,000. Again, all owned water rights, all owned mineral rights, and royalty will convey with the property.

There are a number of large, operating wind farms located in the Texas Panhandle. All wind generation royalty rights are also included.

PRICE AND REMARKS: The Boone Pickens' Mesa Vista Ranch is offered for sale at a price of $220,000,000. It seems impossible to comprehend all of the improvements made to this property, whether it is structural improvements, water enhancements, landscaping, wildlife conservation features, or others. As example, thousands of tons of landscaping rock, trees, shrubbery, plants, etc. were imported to the property over the years. Early on, Boone hired Tommy Ford, an architect from Dallas, Texas, to help in the planning, drafting, and construction of the many improvements placed on the ranch. Together, Boone and Tommy had the vision to take raw ranch land and transform this property into what now represents Mesa Vista Ranch.

In a recent conversation with Tommy Ford, he estimated that the total volume of building materials, landscaping rocks, trees, and other enhancements delivered to the ranch would exceed 120 trains, with each train load containing 110 cars of materials. Having overseen most all of the major structural construction on the property, Tommy estimated replacement cost of over $140,000,000, not counting the added cost of dredging and developing the lakes and creek water systems on the property.

To our knowledge, no other ranch can replicate Boone's Mesa Vista Ranch. He has spent nearly 50 years transforming this Texas Panhandle Ranch into a wildlife paradise with spectacular water features and improvements fit for a king. The sale of the Mesa Vista Ranch is basically "turn key," including all rolling stock, equipment, pick-up trucks, hunting vehicles, farming equipment, furnishings, bird dogs, etc. The only exclusions are Boone's personal effects, livestock, and his vast art collection. The livestock are available to be purchased separately, as is the majority of the art collection.

"You do everything to make the land perfect, hoping the next owner has the same passion." - T. Boone Pickens

TURKEY TRACK RANCH

80,000 acres - under one fence

Texas Panhandle

Nearly 80,000 acres Under One Fence - Historic "Prize of the Panhandle" is legacy of Coble/Whittenburg empire. Known for natural resources and site of Battles of Adobe Walls of 1864 and 1874. Decision to sell comes after twelve decades of stewardship. Icon Global Group to market.

The Turkey Track Ranch was pioneered in the era of legendary WT Waggoner, 6666 and Goodnight Ranches. Boasting almost 80,000 acres under one fence and some 26 miles of Canadian River frontage, the ranch is a rare confluence of natural resources; containing an abundance of water, productive fertile grasslands, and diverse wildlife -set within rolling and rugged topography of mesas, draws, valleys and vistas interposed with open rangeland -epitomizing the western ranch lifestyle and famed fertile buffalo plains of yesteryear.

For the first time in over a century, this rare combination of history, heritage, and natural resources will change hands. The momentous decision was announced today by the Whittenburg and Coble families:

"It is with careful consideration and great emotion that we announce that, after 120 years of stewardship by our family, we have decided to sell our historic Turkey Track Ranch in the Texas Panhandle. For over a century this American landmark has been an integral element of our heritage. Generations of Coble's and Whittenburg's have created lifetimes of memories on the Turkey Track. Due to our family's increasing numbers and geographical distances, we recognize that it is time to find a new steward for this historic holding. We have enlisted Bernard Uechtritz of the Icon Global Group in Dallas to bring the Turkey Track to market in the latter half of 2021. The ranch has and will forever hold not only the monuments, memories, and legacies of our now multigenerational families but, significantly, maintains a very important place within the well-chronicled chapters of early Texas and US history; similarly, the ranch and its past stewards hold a prideful and acknowledged position of contributions to the evolution of modern-day ranching and cattle raising industries, as well as the Oil & Gas sectors of our great state."

- The Coble & Whittenburg Families -



About Turkey Track Ranch


WT (Tom) Coble and later James (Jimmie) A. Whittenburg III, were two of the stewards. Each was a past president of The Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association. Each considered a visionary as well as community and business leaders.

Tom Coble was a contemporary of Dan and Tom Waggoner of the Waggoner Ranch, Samuel "Burk" Burnett of the Four Sixes Ranch, and Charles Goodnight of the JA and Goodnight Ranch. Coble recognized the infinite resources of the Southern Great Plains. Like Waggoner, Burnett, and Goodnight, he created a cattle kingdom that was sustained by thousands of acres of grass.

Later, Whittenburg was the larger-than-life Texas Icon and entrepreneurial modern-day rancher who led the management of the Turkey Track for several decades. An early trendsetter of flying between properties and business interests, he operated several significant ranching interests in Texas and New Mexico, along with other business interests which included Aviation, Oil & Gas, Banking, Cattle Feed Yards; he was also a Special Texas Ranger.

A winner of the Cattlemen's Beef Association Environmental Stewardship award in 2016, the Turkey Track is also held in high esteem by industry . Pete Bonds, then president of the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association, said, "Turkey Track has an outstanding record for their environmental stewardship practices, water management programs and excellent grass diversity."

The property is also the site of the two famed battles of the Adobe Walls of 1864 and 1874, and this hallowed ground just north of the Canadian River is revered by descendants of all combatants. In June of 1924, a six-acre site was given to the Panhandle Plains Historical Society commemorating that month the 50th anniversary of the second battle of the Adobe Walls. In 1941 a monument dedicated to the Native Americans who fought and died in the Battle of 1874 was also erected. Both Monuments stand within the ranch today.

WR Nash Ranch
#TX783418
West Columbia
, 77846
Brazoria County
11,792.00 acres
WR Nash Ranch: Own a piece of Texas history. The WR Nash Ranch has been under the same ownership for over 100 years and has never been available for purchase until now! The raw natural beauty of the WR Nash Ranch is in its rolling prairie of lush grass and the hardwood bottoms of the Brazos River. This property offers unlimited opportunities to create the ranch of your dreams while serving as an attractive investment.

Location: Located about sixteen miles southwest of Houston, the ranch is a short 30-minute drive to the sweet silence of this Brazoria County treasure.

History: Over the years portions of the ranch have been farmed while other areas have been grazed. The ranch has mostly remained the same as it was back when Santa Anna and the Mexican army crossed the Brazos River back in 1836. The ranch has a rich history which included colorful characters such as Graves Peeler who is known as the Savior of the Texas Longhorn Peeler worked as the ranchs manager from 1930 to 1944 during which time the ranch ran nearly 3,000 head. Peeler went on to operate his own South Texas ranch and the modern day Texas longhorn cattle are descendants of one of seven herds and one of which was the Graves peeler ranch. The WR Nash Ranch continues today to be operated as a working cattle ranch. The ranch includes thousands of acres of hardwood timber bottomland which is spectacular habitat for a variety of wild game including whitetail deer.

Kittie Nash Groce: One of the more fascinating aspects of the ranch was its owner Kittle Nash Groce. Kittie spent the early part of her life living in the famed Nash House on Westmoreland Street in Houston, Texas. Her life story would make a sensational movie that would appear as a Hollywood creation except it is a real story. She lived a life of high society in Houston, Florida, New York, and Paris, but after the death of her father (William Rufus Nash) she moved to the ranch where she took on the management and control of this vast land and cattle enterprise. She lived through tough times that included living off of turtle soup and wearing her fathers tattered ranching clothes, but she made the ranch into a prosperous South Texas icon. She was known as a kind and yet strong lady that was both generous with her time and her money. The WR Ranch is a symbol of Texas toughness, fortitude, determination, ingenuity, and persistence.

Features: WR Nash Ranch has over 5 miles of Brazos River frontage and is crossed by several paved county roads and one state highway which provide tremendous access to the ranch. The terrain is gently rolling to generally level and despite its river frontage the ranch has functioned well during periods of inclement weather. The ranch is crossed by several drainage tributaries including Cow Creek and Turkey Creek.

The WR Ranch is current agricultural exempt for ad valorem taxation purposes and much of the ranch is income generating with existing farming and livestock grazing leases. The diversity of ranch also offers the potential for income from recreational hunting, as well as alternative energy projects.

Wildlife: The wildlife on the ranch is plentiful and includes a well-established whitetail deer herd while the migratory bird hunting has been fabulous in the past. In the past portions of the ranch had been farmed in rice and if that habitat were restored the ranch would be an annual destination for huge flocks of ducks and other migratory bird species. Both Ducks Unlimited and the local NRCS office are excellent resources to assist with habitat design and development.

Investment: The close proximity of the WR Nash ranch to the Houston area makes the ranch an exceptional investment and development property. There are very few, if any, large acreage properties available within a 1 hour drive of Houston. The ever increasing population of the Houston MSA yields an unrelenting demand for large acreage tract for future development with residential and master planned communities. According to the Greater Houston Partnership the metro Houston area has a population of over 7.1 million people and could surge to in excess of 9 million people by 2030. The WR Nash Ranch is well poised for development to meet this demand. The ranch is less than 6 miles south of the proposed right of way of Segment C of the Grand Parkway. Plus, the ranch is bisected by State Highway 36 which is currently being updated to a four lane divided highway to provide enhanced travel from the Southwest Freeway to Freeport and its industrial development.

Brokers Comments: For those looking to live a dream on a large historical ranch with unlimited possibilities for an exceptional life built around natural beauty, wildlife, and agriculture, the WR Nash Ranch is the place for you.

This is a surface only offering with no minerals to be transferred with a sale. Surface protections can be negotiated.

Glenwood Springs
, 81601
Garfield County
1,123.00 acres
The Farm on the Colorado is a resource-filled, legacy investment opportunity consisting of a 1,123 acre ranch in the bustling Colorado River valley west of Glenwood Springs. The Farm is likely the largest flat, irrigated expanse on a single, private property in the entire I-70 corridor through the rugged Rocky Mountain stretch between Denver and Grand Junction and identified in Garfield Countys Comprehensive Plan as a prime location for future development. The area is primarily a Ski Country bedroom community, located an hour from the Aspen and Vail areas. While it possesses a Glenwood Springs address, the property is located within the Town of New Castles Urban Growth Boundary and adjacent to the town border, so depending on a new owners plans it can be ripe for annexation.

This is a large, versatile, farm & ranch in Colorado that is currently in agricultural use, with over 15 CFS of water rights (thats over 10,800 annual acre-feet) that irrigate over 300 acres of the valley floor, its boundaries stretching from the Colorado River to the south, all the way to rolling uplands to the north that border BLM lands. Over one mile of I-70 bisects The Farm and an existing interchange is within one mile, so this is a highly visible place. Currently, there is over $100K of rental income from a combination of agricultural, residential, and hunting leases. All utilities are either in place or immediately accessible.

There is definitely a lot happening on this property, but with nearly two miles of frontage on the Colorado River, a 10-acre lake for water-skiing and SUP, quality hunting, and scenic views, this asset is not only investment-grade real estate, but a sporting ranch to be enjoyed while a new owner positions the property to meet ones investment and development goals.

Venado Grande Ranch
#TX966162
Benjamin
, 79505
King County
22,730.00 acres
Property Description
The Venado Grande is the kind of ranch that a true sportsman or cattleman will equally love to own. Contiguously pieced together 22,730 acres derived from the historic Fant, Spikebox, and Moorehouse Ranches, situated in the heart of Big Ranch Country. This amazing property has been owned and operated by an oilman with an open checkbook, no expense spared anywhere. Millions of dollars worth of heavy equipment has been utilized to mechanically remove invasive brush, improve road networks, install wildlife foodplots and enhance grazing pastures for cattle. The ranch water system appears to be in excellent condition and the structural improvements are first class.

All of the exterior fencing is either new or in very good condition. Numerous new cross fences have been installed to aid in the ease of the cattle operation from a rotation standpoint.

Location
The Venado Grande is located just west of the farming and ranching community of Benjamin in the Texas Rolling Plains. The ranch straddles the King and Knox County line and access is provided by approximately 4.5 miles of paved Highway 82 frontage. Easy access from Dallas (200 Miles), Ft. Worth (175 Miles), Abilene (90 Miles), Lubbock (115 Miles), and Wichita Falls (94 Miles).

History
The ranch was assembled through several purchases with the goal of turning rugged ranchland into a true showplace. Livestock production and wildlife management have been the main focus, along with four season recreation.

There are old copper mines in the rugged hills on the ranch, as well as stories about fur trappers and the history of several long-time area ranch families that called the ranch home in the early days.

Water Features
As previously mentioned, the ranch has been assembled and operated with an emphasis on improving the productivity of the land and expanding the availability of reliable water sources for wildlife and cattle. Recreation has been a major focus as well and four lakes on the ranch have been constructed in the past few years. These lakes are now full and have been stocked and managed for trophy fishing. Water is clear and inviting on a warm summer day.

To further enhance the ranch with additional reliable water sources miles and miles of heavy-duty poly waterline was distributed across the property, connected to a massive 30,000-gallon storage system fed by the King-Cottle rural waterline. This system guarantees treated water that is distributed across the property. This ingenious system utilizes mass storage and topography to efficiently move water across the ranch, maintaining enough pressure to fill over 65 large rubber tire drinkers and wildlife water stations.

Approximately ten miles of the South Wichita River winds through the northern portions of the ranch. This river normally serves as a year-round live water source. The river bottom is very scenic and brush canopy along the riverbanks offers exceptional wildlife habitat.

Hunting, Wildlife and Recreation
As the name of the ranch implies, this is big deer country. An abundance of large ranch ownerships in this region has allowed whitetail and mule deer populations to thrive and mature bucks to reach trophy size. Supplemental feed as well as large foodplots on the Venado Grande provide ample nutrition to grow impressive whitetail bucks. Also benefiting from this feed program are native turkey, quail and wild boar.

In recent years aoudad sheep have become common in this area and there are some impressive rams viewed frequently on the Venado Grande.
(4) 10x10 and (4) 6x8 insulated tower blinds are located on the ranch, typically overlooking a pipe fenced high capacity corn and protein feeder station.

Improvements
The ranch is exceptionally well improved in a first-class manner. The ranch manager lives at the ranch headquarters in a very nice 3-bedroom, 2 bath home with a rock and stucco exterior and metal roof. This house is connected to a large garage by a wrap around, ranch style porch.

Complementing the headquarters ranch house is a 300 x 140 show barn with fifteen six rail, six foot high pipe stalls with automatic frost proof waterings. Two alleys and a nearly new set of pipe pens, tub and alley with hydraulic chute make livestock work a breeze. The large show barn also houses a large, unfinished apartment/office/tack room. This 50'x60' two-story facility was framed, wired for electric, plumbed and ready for spray foam insulation, however, the owner lost interest in the project and it was never completed. The current framed facility was to house two bedrooms, an office, large living area with full kitchen and a large saddle/tack room.

This large covered pen would work well for a cutting pen and is complete with indoor and outdoor lighting. This structure was key in making livestock handling/work a pleasure. The HQ work shops footprint is 90 x 100 (40x100 lean-to, 40 carport, and 50x60 being the unfinished enclosed apartment/office/tack room). A pipe roping arena and several outdoor pens, including a set of scales, is all located close by.

A large heated/cooled shop is also located nearby, used primarily for feed storage and vehicle maintenance/storage.

The owner's home is set on a picturesque hillside overlooking lush grass fields that were recently aerated and seeded to grass for cattle. This expansive and modern home was designed and built to last with no expense was spared in the construction. The home contains approximately 7,000 square feet and 4 bedrooms and 4.5 baths. Said home includes a 700 square foot heated and cooled garage and a 4,500 square foot wrap around ranch style porch. Only the best construction material was used, which includes exterior wall insulation that is approx. 11 inches thick that includes 6 inches of foam insulation, scratch coat of stucco, and 4-5 inches of stone. The roof is a virtually indestructible Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roof. Facia and soffit are stucco. All the aforementioned created as close to a no maintenance exterior as you can get. Another notable feature includes a state-of-the-art kitchen and monolithically poured, 8 thick solid concrete theater room that doubles as a safe room/storm shelter. Near this magnificent nearly new home is a large 60x100 foam insulated shop, heated and cooled, with a 25 lean-to and carport. This structure serves as storage for hunting vehicles, RVs, etc. Also nearby is a a new equipment carport, which is 50 x 200 in size. This structure houses trailers, dirt equipment, tractors, etc. Around the owners home complex is a cement filled cinderblock snake proof wall and gate.

Resources
This region is rich not only in productive land but minerals on and below the surface as well. The seller owns approximately 481 net mineral acres under the heart of the ranch (12,000 acres). Likely there are minerals owned under the other tracts that were assembled over the years as well, but this has never been researched.

Price and Remarks
The Venado Grande is a fantastic offering, suitable for enjoyable use throughout all four seasons of the year. The improvements and the ranch are top notch, are in great condition and easy-to-maintain. There is no doubt that this ranch will continue to flourish, and wildlife numbers improve due to the exorbitant amount of money that has been spent under the current ownership.

The ranch is offered for sale at $1,195 per acre, including one-half of the owned minerals and all the wind energy and solar energy royalty rights intact.

Broker Comments
If you are looking to step into one of the highest improved, turnkey hunting /fishing/recreation/cattle ranches in Texas then the Venado Grande deserves your immediate attention.

The Venado Grande is a recreation and cattle raisers paradise. Reliable ranch management is in place and management would like to continue operating the ranch serving a new owner.
