Here is a property that is almost a wilderness, yet less than a one hour drive from Houston. It lies in an area that has traditionally produced some of the largest bucks taken in Colorado County. Nearby ranches have won several big buck contests. The ranch is well -ested regarding deer hunting. The family has not leased deer hunting rights in over 40 years and the family themselves do not hunt.
This ranch is estimated 85% wooded. The upland areas are mostly sandy soils with the predominate tree being live oak–old, moss-draped giants. Other trees are post oak, water oak, hickory, black-jack oak and elm. Understory of yaupon, American beauty berry and huckleberry. Very good tree diversity. The bottom land is a series of perhaps six shallow-dug old gravel pits. These were mined in the 1940’s and 50’s. Now the pits are covered up with huisache and grape vines. A jungle that harbors trophy deer and hogs. The next level down towards the river is a forest of giant pecan, ash, cotton wood, sycamore and box alder.
There is an old mobile home on the property that adds no value but there is power and a water well to that site. One pond. The best attribute regarding access is a newly constructed all-weather oil road that enters the tract at about the mid point, then travels through the center of the land almost to the river itself.
Access to this ranch is via a shared, deeded easement.
The sellers believe they own 100% minerals and these can be negotiated.
