Situated 4 miles northeast of Rocksprings in Edwards County, this long established ranch has been operated for over 100 years as an agriculture and hunting ranch.  This ranch has prime access with almost 3 miles of frontage on US Hwy 377 forming the southeast boundary, while also having ½ mile of paved frontage on RR 2630 in the northwest corner.  The all-weather road that bisects the ranch allows for easy access points throughout.   The land is gentle to rolling with elevations ranging from 2180’ to 2377’.  The higher elevations offer tremendous views of the Edwards Plateau.  Much of the cedar has been cleared giving way to the many live oaks and open meadows that dominate the plateau.  Several large draws head on the ranch and drain to the north as part of the South Llano River water shed.  To truly point out its location at the apex of a drainage divide, the land directly across the highway drains south to the Nueces River watershed.

The wildlife on the ranch consists of hundreds of axis, large populations of whitetail deer, turkey and dove that gravitate to the area, taking advantage of the generous vegetation and terrain; being spurred on by low pressure from hunters and livestock.

There are currently 11 operating natural gas wells with the sellers willing to convey ¼ of their owned mineral interests (sellers are believed to own 100% of the mineral rights, excepting 640 acres on which their ownership interest is believed to be 50%). 

The classic style of the main ranch house takes you back 100 years while recent updates assure the homes usability for years to come.  At approximately 2400 sq ft, the 3 bedroom/2.5 bath house also offers a large living room, sitting room and sun porch.  Recent updates include new windows, new HVAC unit, new paint and wiring.  A few yards from the main house is a well-built rock cabin.  The cabin is a cozy 1 bedroom with a full bath.  Other improvements include a hunter’s camp with bunkhouse and cook house.  Water is provided throughout the ranch by two submersible wells, large concrete cisterns and troughs.  The fencing along the perimeter is in great condition, with the northern boundary and a portion of the east line being high fenced.  Interior pastures are cross fenced with net wire into 5 main pastures, with several smaller traps.  There is a set of livestock pens and small barn just down from the main house. 

The premium location and unique characteristics this ranch offers will seldom be found in any part of the country.
