Presidio County Ranch - Sold

Acres:

8000

Price:

$2,600,000 ($325 per Acre)

County:

Presidio Co., Texas

Location:

Approximately 28 miles south of Marfa on paved FM 169 with about 6 miles of highway frontage.

Description:

The ranch is generally a rolling desert brush country. Alamito Creek runs through the property for about 3ΒΌ miles. It is lined with large cottonwoods and flows completely through the ranch for several months in most years. In dry times, water flows through or stands in 50%-75% of the creekbed. The ranch is well watered by Alamito Creek, dirt tanks, twelve wells and about 3 miles of relatively new pipeline. Two pastures of the ranch, totaling around 1447 acres, are restricted from grazing by the Conservation Reserve Program through the USDA. This contract is in effect until September of 2018 and prohibits these pastures only from being grazed by livestock. The payment from the program is approximately the same as a grazing lease for these pastures.

Minerals:

One half of the minerals will be conveyed.

Improvements:

Old headquarters including a ranch house, barns, corrals.

Game:

Mule deer, blue quail, turkey, wild hogs and javelina.

Remarks:

This ranch has been in the same family since about 1950. It is in an area of much history as evidenced by the nearby historical marker marking the settlement of Alamito and the Indian camps and cavalry camps that have been identified on the property. Very large mule deer have been taken on this ranch in recent years. Live water and large trees are somewhat scarce in the Big Bend area. This ranch has both.
