This irregular shaped tract of property lies on the northern boundary of the town of Matagorda. The ranch consists of 4 non-contiguous tracts with Highway 60 splitting the property. There is 1.5 miles of frontage along both sides of Highway 60 on the south tracts, .9 miles of frontage on both sides of Highway 60 on the north tracts, 1.8 miles along Gulf Road on the north tracts and .2 miles of frontage along South Gulf Road east of Matagorda.
At one time there was approximately 1800 acres of farmland on this property. Most of that is in pasture land now. It would need to be investigated to see if there is still a rice base attached to the property.
One of the largest features of this ranch is the 1.5 miles of frontage along the east side of the Colorado River. This portion of the river allows for deep draft barges access to the nearby South Project Site and the Port of Bay City. There could be potential in the future for industrial development such as petrochemical or LNG Plants along this waterway. Also the potential for future residential development exists along the river with development from the south along the river stopping at the southwest corner of this property and another residential development located just north of the northwest corner.
Livestock water is shallow on this ranch (approx. 100') and there are several windmills located throughout the property. There is also a possibility that irrigation water is available for purchase from the L.C.R.A. rice canal. Fencing is fair and there are a couple of sets of cattle pens.
There should be abundant wildlife as none of these properties are being hunted by owners. Duck and goose hunting also excellent in this area.
