There are few places in Texas where the legends of the old west and the landscapes that crafted them still combine to create a backdrop so stunning, so authentic, and so historic that yesterday becomes today and the Wild West still calls. Names like Whistler Mesa, Agua Fria Spring, Panther Draw, Horse Tank Draw, Black Ridge, Alamo Cesario Creek, Blackrock Draw, and Soda Spring Draw are names that still describe this historic ranch. Its also all about the water and the huge natural spring at the base of Agua Fria Mountain. Once the life blood of ancient cultures, today the crystal clear cool waters are distributed into a modern water system providing year-round water throughout the ranch. Located in the Chihuahuan Desert of Texas deep in the Big Bend Region, the ranch is comprised of almost the entire Agua Fria Mountain range with adjoining mid-lower elevation grasslands and scrubland of basin
range topography between the Davis Mountains to the north, the Chisos Mountains to the south east, the Bofecillos Mountains and Solitarios to the West and Rio
Grande River to the south. Agua Fria Ranch is a working cattle and hunting ranch, with the historic Whistler Headquarters located adjacent to an amazing rock formation where one would expect Rooster Cogburn to come riding up out of the past to water his horse! The ranch and its network of roads and 21 water troughs is impressive and provide spectacular views of area mountains, canyons, and desert floors to combine into a mix of habitats.
There is a working Bentonite Mining Lease on a 320 acre parcel of fee mineral land. This ranch has been owned and operated by the same family since 1960 and this mineral operation provides good annual income. This surface mining operation is restricted into a specific area so you get ranch income with only a specific area of the ranch being impacted. Also the mine keeps the main road into the ranch off paved Highway 118 in excellent working order year-round. Details on income and production can be provided to qualified buyers. Ranch will be subject to a one year lease with current mining operation so that any extension terms can be negotiated with the new owners.
