Rivers Ranch

Posted on: April 28th, 2019 by David Faust

Rivers Ranch
16757 Ellis Road
Menard, TX 76859

Location: The ranch is well located approximately 12 miles southwest of Menard, Texas and 20 miles northwest of Junction, Texas in Menard County. Ellis Road is a well-maintained county road providing a very private entry into the Rivers Ranch.

General: The sellers have owned the ranch since 1982. This portion of the ranch (which is comprised of 1567 acres with a new survey now complete) is being offered by The RIVERS FAMILY PARTNERSHIP. The Headquarters are about a mile from the gate and contain a very comfortable Main House of approximately 1600 square feet and the Rock House for guests of approximately 900 square feet. Several old barns and small buildings with an excellent set of working pens lie within the compound. A strong water well serves the headquarters with a nice pila that would make a great cowboy swimming pool and a separate concrete storage tank.

Hunters Cabin: Located about mile from the Headquarters lies the Hunters Cabin of approximately 1800 square feet. It is designed to accommodate 16 to 18 overnight guests. With a fenced compound and separate water well, it is far enough away from the Headquarters to provide privacy to both areas. In addition, there is a small 2-bedroom cabin in the adjacent Brown Pasture that overlooks a seasonal dove tank watered by a windmill.

Water Wells: The. Ranch is well watered with 4 total water wells, one at each house and one distributing water to concrete troughs throughout the ranch. All of the wells have held up well even during tough drought conditions.

Minerals: The sellers believe they own 1/2 of the minerals on the 1145 acres and all of the minerals on the remaining acreage. They will convey 25% of all minerals owned at closing.

Wildlife and Habitat: The ranch has been well-managed for wildlife and provides excellent hunting for whitetail, turkey and hogs. The dove and quail hunting can be very good on wet years. The habitat for wildlife is ideal with cover provided by live oak, spanish oak, shinnery oak, persimmon, agarita, mesquite and hackberry. The cedar has been well-maintained through the years and is left in certain spots for cover. Prickly pear, blue stem, indian grass, switchgrass and grama grass complete the landscape.

Double M Ranch

Posted on: February 8th, 2019 by David Faust

Location: This 1,000 acre property is located in Live Oak County between George West and Three Rivers 4 miles West of Hwy 281. The property has 1 mile of frontage on CR 443. It is a 10 minute drive to either George West or Three Rivers, both thriving South Texas towns. It has large neighbors on all sides, ranging from 1,000 acres to 4,500 acres. It is an approximate 210 mile drive from Houston, an approximate 75 mile drive from San Antonio, and an approximate 65 mile drive from Corpus Christi. Choke Canyon Lake, which has some of the best bass fishing in Texas, is only a 12 mile drive from the front gate of the ranch.

Terrain: This ranch is a great representative of South Texas Brush Country, and about 90% of the ranch has productive, deep, dark sandy loam soils. The terrain is made up of gently rolling hills with elevation changes of up to 100 feet offering beautiful views. There are bull mesquite and hackberry scattered all over the ranch. Native brush species include: guajillo, granjeno, guayacon, black brush, prickly pear, coma, cat claw, lime prickly ash, mountain laurel, and Texas persimmon. The brush does not get any better in South Texas. The seasonal Salt Branch Creek traverses the ranch for 1.5 miles, providing incredible drainage and wildlife habitat.

Water: This property has 3 water wells, the depth of each is 280 feet. The irrigation well is equipped with a three phase electric 40 HP pump that produces 300GPM. This irrigation well supplies water to the 30 acre dove field in front of the house. The 2 additional wells are each equipped with 5 HP electric submersible pumps and produce 40 GPM. These wells supply water to the house and barn, the 3 lakes, and over 20 concrete quail waters and cattle troughs throughout the ranch, via several miles of buried 1 and 2 inch pvc water lines. There are 3 ponds on the property, the biggest being approximately 2 acres and 10 feet deep with a liner, and stocked with bass.

Hunting: After 12 years of heavy game management and deer breeding operations, the ranch is consistently producing trophy bucks that score between 200 and 250 Boone and Crockett. There are two 5-acre DMP pens on the property, each containing 20 bred does at the time of this writing (3/23/17). There is a massive population of turkey on the ranch. The dove and quail hunting are also excellent. During the 2016/2017 quail season, it was not unusual to see 12 to 15 coveys of quail in a morning of hunting with dogs. The ranch has been strictly managed with brush clearing and controlled burning in order to have a sustainable quail population that produces large numbers of quail year in and year out. The dove hunting is second to none in this area. There are 3 cultivated and irrigated food plots, totaling 50 acres, each of these has been planted in brown top millet, maize, and sunflowers for the past 12 years, creating a major flyway for doves.

Improvements: Enter the property through the electric gate, and proceed down the 1/2 mile ultra smooth caliche road to the house, which is perched on a hill offering 360 degree views for miles. The house is 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, with an office, gun room, utility room, and storage room. The house was custom built in 2013, and has rock siding, large wraparound porches, covered carports, and a back patio with an oversized built-in fire pit. The interior features high ceilings, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and stained concrete floors. The front and back yard is full of old growth bull mesquites, and the fenced back yard has over 20 fruit trees in place with irrigation. Slightly down hill from the house, sits the 100 X 50 steel barn, including 3,500 sq ft of barn/storage area, and a 1,500 sq ft finished living quarters with 2 bedrooms/1 bathroom, full kitchen, living area, and utility room. Inside the barn, there is a walk-in cooler and cleaning station with stainless steel sinks and counters, and commercial ice machine. Near the barn, there is a fenced in dog kennel area, and three 15-ton overhead feed storage bins. The property is high fenced with galvanized tight-lock fencing. There is some barbed wire cross-fencing on the ranch, and 2 high fenced DMP pens. Also, 5 fiberglass executive hunting blinds, 6 Outback one-thousand pound spin feeders, and 6 Outback free choice protein feeders convey with the sale. None of the home furnishings, vehicles, ranch equipment or tools will convey with the sale.

Minerals: The owner does not own any minerals. There is no production or mineral lease in place.

6248.00 acres in Menard County, Texas

Posted on: February 8th, 2019 by David Faust

Description = LOCATION: This splendid hunting/recreational ranch is tucked away in the Hill Country of NE Menard County near the Mason/McCulloch county lines, with exquisite seclusion yet solid access from a private easement/county road to the NE. It is about 25 minutes to either Mason (supplies, arts/crafts, restaurants, groceries), Brady (airport, hospital, supplies, restaurants, groceries) or Menard (supplies, restaurants, groceries).

The area is comprised of productive farms and orchards along the river, and larger hunting/ranching operations off-river, with one large acreage tract subdivision near the ranch for a brief stretch near the southern edge along the San Saba River. For more information on Menard and/or Mason County, go to their websites.

Access to the NE is via private easement and CR 110 on a caliche road that is 3.4 miles from paved FM 1311, a connector between Brady and TX 29, and is regarded as all-weather. Access to the SW is via private easement and Turkey Barn Rd.

All amenities and international airports are available two hours away in either Austin or San Antonio, and area hub San Angelo, 80 miles NW, is home to a regional airport and most amenities. This is one of the largest ranch offerings ever within this close proximity to these major growth centers.

WATER: This supremely-watered ranch contains about 1/4 mile of frontage on the show-stopping Gobal Hole, on the pristine and beautiful San Saba River, high up in the drainage near the headwater springs, where the deeper water is solid and reliable. The river in this area is fabulous, and Gobal Hole clearly has jet ski potential. Per owners, the hole maintained its level 80% or better during the recent Great Drought, and is full of big bass, catfish and perch. The fishing in this area is unsurpassed!

The permanence of the water in this area was doubtlessly a draw for ancient settlers and tribes, and Indian occupation sites are known in this part of the country, though nothing specific on the property has been identified. Gobal Hole is over 1,300 long, and reaches a width of almost 200!

In addition to the river, the ranch offers an extensive well and water system tapped into the abundant Hickory Aquifer, including 9 wells, 22 troughs and 15 miles of fast lines to move it efficiently. One well is 1,850 deep and is capable of producing 850 gpm, per owners, and drives a center pivot that can water about 90 acres of improved grass. The water system on this ranch can be accurately described as superior, and also includes 20 stock tanks, which are magnets for waterfowl in winter months, and a spring. Several of these tanks cover 2 3 acres when full. Average annual rainfall in this area is about 25. For more info on area groundwater, please contact the Hickory Underground Water Conservation District.

LAND: EQR consists of about 6,160 acres under high fence, and a river pasture of about 90 acres under low fence. Most of the land is gently rolling, native rangeland, featuring excellent mixed cover of hardwoods and shrubs, with flats, hills, draws and canyons mixed in. The flats contain silty clay loams, which support liveoak, mesquite, persimmon, agarita and prickly pear. The sometimes-broken top country includes shinoak thickets, Spanish oak and scattered large liveoaks, with abundant thick cover for all types of wildlife. A large range of hills hiding a large valley dominates the western portion of the ranch, and there are scenic, distant vistas abound from many lookout points, and occasional limestone outcrops and cliffs as well.

Overall, the land rolls down about 280 from N to S, and includes up to 8 wildlife food plots, and supports a fantastic herd of managed whitetail deer which began to be introduced in 2009. This deer herd recently had 4 year old bucks averaging 185 B&C scores, and is managed under a Texas Managed Lands Permit, allowing for hunting from October 1 February 28. The ranch also offers excellent hunting for dove, turkey, waterfowl and varmints, and the draws and river bottom offer the finest in songbird viewing/hearing in the spring. The ranch has been historically well-managed, and has received the prestigious Lone Star Steward Award and Aldo Leopold Conservation Award in 2006. The overall variety is remarkable, and contributes to the beauty and utility of this versatile giant.

IMPROVEMENTS: The property is well improved, including the aforementioned superior water system. The primary structure is a nice frame lodge of 9 BR, 6 BA, with commercial kitchen, large Great Room, fireplace, metal roof and long porches, near the NE corner of the ranch. This is perfect for hosting groups, and is laid out in two wings like a classic hunting lodge. A game cleaning building with walk-in cooler is nearby, and the HQs compound is functional, manicured and landscaped.

The ranch has 6,160 acres under game proof fencing, with some low cross fencing, and ten breeder pens (for deer) and one holding pen for yearling and fawn bucks. Detailed info on this extensive whitetail breeding and management program is available upon request. An extensive, smooth road system accesses all areas of the ranch, and there are several fields that have been seeded in grasses previously. A full collection of blinds and feeders is included with the sale, and other accessories, manufactured homes and equipment owned by the ranch are negotiable.

FINANCIAL/TITLE: Listing Price is $2,275/acre, with owners to provide basic survey and title insurance. Mineral conveyance is negotiable. It is believed that Sellers own 100% Executive Rights and at least 50% minerals. There are apparent electric utility easements, but no large transmission lines on the ranch. The property is located in the Menard ISD, is served by Sharyland Utilities and current ag-exempt property taxes are about $17,500 per year. This is a co-listing with David Faust, KW Farm & Ranch.

SUMMARY: Rare is the opportunity to acquire such a significant offering tied to such spectacular water and scenery, yet is only 2 hours from Austin or San Antonio! This is a true legacy ranch with all the trimmings, but without gaudy and overdone improvements, retaining utility and function at justifiable value. Only 25 minutes from prized Mason, the location could not be more pristine yet accessible, and the stellar deer herd and infrastructure kick it up a notch. Thanks for your consideration, and we hope to hear from you or your broker for a site tour soon.

445 Acres – Gonzales Co

Posted on: February 8th, 2019 by David Faust

LOCATION: The impressive Circle Bar Blue Ranch is located in south-central Gonzales County, less than 5 miles south of the historic town of Gonzales. The front gate is a 75 minute drive from both Austin and San Antonio with Houston being about 2 hours to the east.

Entering through the ranch’s custom front gates you are welcomed by a pastoral feeling courtesy of grassy, oak-studded hilltops that descend into dark blue lakes. Overlooking this manicured front pasture is an envelope of first-class building improvements consisting of a ranch office, main home, horse barn with apartment and a covered arena.

Main Home

The 2500 sqft 3 bedroom/3 bath main home is a modern farmhouse that is comfortable and cowboy chic while possessing a subtle elegant flair. The home was built and designed by an accomplished interior designer whose skill and talents are showcased within its charming walls. Perhaps the most interesting feature of the home is the formal dining room. It was crafted from a grain bin that was moved to the ranch and is now attached to the house. It boasts a massive iron chandelier salvaged from a Philadelphia train station complimented with Venetian Crystal sconces. The large master bedroom and bath create a comfortable retreat and include a soaking tub and steam shower.

Horse Barn w/ Apartment

Centrally located on the top of a hill is where you will find the well-planned, site built horse barn with 20+ concrete stalls. Multiple large roll-up bay doors and wide drive-through aisles allow for a spacious feel. There is also a centrally located tack room as well as a dedicated vet area with a hot/cold horse washing station. Attached to the barn is a +/-1,000 sqft 1 bedroom/1 bath apartment designed and constructed in a similar fashion as the main home and finished out entirely with reclaimed materials which gives the space a western elegant aura.


Adjacent to the barn are cattle pens and a covered cutting horse training arena designed and currently utilized by a Hall of Fame cutting horse trainer. You can rest assure knowing no detail was overlooked in the thoughtful design of this facility.

LAND: This area of Gonzales County is not typically known for its topography, yet traveling the ranch from one end to the other you will experience nearly 100 feet of elevation change. Cottle Creek traverses the ranch creating an expansive canyon that serves as prime, un-touched wildlife habitat. Throughout the Cottle Creek valley you will also find an impressive array of towering hardwoods including Live Oak, Post Oak, Burr Oak, Cedar Elm, Pecan and Sycamore.

There is over 45 acres of grass field on the ranch that could easily be put in hay production or row-crop production. Currently these fields produce a remarkable amount of under-utilized forage without any application of weed killer or fertilizer.

Having been rarely hunted in the past 20 year the Circle Bar Blue is teeming with wild game. A mature native whitetail buck in excess of 150 b/c has recently been spotted along with, hogs, bobcat and other native species in huntable quantities. There are a total of 4 lakes/ponds on the ranch, several of which are stocked with bass.

The Circle Bar Blue Ranch has over 1.5 miles of Guadalupe River frontage. This frontage is a mixture of accessible gravel beach as well as high river bank allowing for awesome fishing fishing and recreation.

MINERALS: The Seller owns approximately 1/2 of the mineral estate and will convey 1/8 of owned minerals at closing. Property is subject to an oil & gas lease. There is no oil & gas production , activity or surface equipment on the property. Please call Listing Broker for more information.
