Location: Muerto Creek Ranch is located in western Jim Wells County approximately 7 miles NW of Alice. Corpus Christi is 50 miles to the east, Laredo is 100 miles to the west and San Antonio is quick 2 hour drive north. County Road 170 runs along the western boundary of the property providing convenient, paved access. With its population hovering around 20K, Alice is where you can find most modern day conveniences including Regional hospitals, hotels, chain restaurants and HEB grocery.
General: Driving along CR 170 you cant help but notice the towering old growth brush that flanks the entire western boundary of the property. Shielding the heart of the ranch from the county road, this thick strip of brush creates privacy to those within.
Almost perfectly square in shape, this property was originally designed for hay production, cattle grazing and with its abundant native game population, hunting delivers an added bonus. There is a set of working pens centrally located and cross fencing that creates +/- 7 separate pastures. Approximately 45 acres of field is clean and has recently been utilized for round bale hay production. Most of these pastures are in various stages of mesquite re-growth. Fencing, both exterior and interior, is fair to poor with some areas in need of repair. The entire perimeter is low-fenced with neighbors consisting of a +/-700 acre ranch to the north, a +/- 150 acre ranch to the east and +/-50 acre tract to the south.
A natural feature of the property are the two branches of Muerto Creek that converge in the center of the ranch creating a unique riparian area. This creek bottom is a haven for wildlife and lined with Elm, Hackberry, Persimmon and bull Mesquite trees that tower over the landscape.
From the entrance to the property, an all-weather road leads you to a 3 bedroom 2 bath +/-2500 sqft brick home with office originally built in 1978. Majestic, healthy Live Oaks and Pecan trees surround the residence accenting this picturesque homesite. This home is set towards the back of the property, away from the county road and the interior is clean, functional and livable. There are 2 water wells on the property, both outfitted with submersible pumps and pressure tanks. One well is located at the main house and the other is located at the cattle pens which are centrally located.
Summary: It's not often in South Texas that a ranch comes up for sale with mineral rights included. If you've been looking for a weekend retreat to graze cattle and hunt game, a full-time residence in a peaceful country setting, or a raw land to invest in to hedge against market downturns, come see Muerto Creek Ranch and all it has to offer.
