The Lone Star Ranch is approximately 1,000 acres located between Terlingua and Lajitas in West Texas. The ranch was named after the Lone Star Mine, a quicksilver mine that last produced in the 1970s. The ranch includes the Tres Cuevas Mountain, one of the highest points on the Terlingua monocline. The ranch house consists of approximately 3,000 square feet and was built on the existing concrete foundation of the mill on the side of the Tres Cuevas with views into Lajitas and Santa Elena Canyon. The ranch is nestled between Big Bend State Park and Big Bend National Park.
The home has been remodeled with new kitchen and bathrooms and offers rustic charm. The floors are a combination of Saltillo tile and 18x18 ceramic tile and ceilings are accented with wood beams and Douglas fir tongue and groove. The kitchen is open to the living room with a 6 x 12 custom island, granite countertops, tile backsplash, and modern Kenmore Elite stainless steel appliances. The home has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master suite is large with two large closets and a private bathroom. The bathroom includes a granite double sink vanity, built-in cabinets, large garden tub with granite surround, and walk-in shower with stone and granite walls. The living room offers two exterior doors that walk onto the covered porches and many windows providing the mountain views facing southeast. The roof is metal with an elastomeric coating and the home has central heat & air. The walls are cinder block with plaster finish and the home is very energy efficient.
A cozy bunkhouse is a bonus, found buried into the side of the hill under the house and was once the old mines office. Great space for several beds with a stone floor and wood ceiling. This would be a great guest quarters or office space. One bathroom is included for added convenience.
Surrounding the home are clusters of native bushes and cacti, over 1,200 sq.ft. of tiled covered porches, stone & tile walkways and ledges and a tiled pergola looking out towards mountains. Many parts of the old mining equipment are still in place and incorporated into the structures and mountainside, as shown in the pictures. A couple of the mine shafts have been enclosed and used as storage rooms. Walking the property, over an 800 elevation change takes place.
The property is all electric and offers a water well measured at 1,000 deep. The well pumps into two 3,000 gallon water tanks that is pumped uphill to another set of 3,000 gallon storage tanks.
All roads are accessible, including the road to the top of Tres Cuevas where the view is breathtaking and unmatchable. Many ruins dating back to 1890 can be found on the ranch, part of the original ghost town in Terlingua. In addition, the ranch offers a rockhounds and fossil hunters paradise. Many minerals and fossils can be found on the property as well as tons of native plants, birds, and wildlife.
