This 6,238-acre quintessential Trans-Pecos Ranch is located in western Terrell County just west of Sanderson, TX. Mule deer, elk, blue quail, and predators roam this beautifully stark landscape, making this a large, but manageable, recreational destination for those seeking their adventures in wild West Texas.
Hwy 90 frontage 4 miles west of Sanderson; 48 miles to Marathon; 70 miles to Fort Stockton; 78 miles to Alpine; 88 miles to Big Bend National Park; 165 miles to Midland Airport
Infinity views off the high mesas and cliff tops conceal the dramatic fall into steep canyons and creek bottoms. Oaks, juniper, hackberry, and and key browse species in the low-lying areas give way to blackbrush, sage, and other shrubs in higher elevations.
The draws and canyons hold the animals on this property. A recent helicopter survey and historical anecdotes indicate healthy mule deer, elk, blue quail, javalina, and predator populations. The modest cattle operation keeps an Agriculture Tax Valuation in place, and an easily-managed Wildlife Tax Valuation may be more appropriate for the next owner. The listing agent can provide more information and a free consultation on how to make this transition part of the deal for the new owner.
Some minerals are negotiable.
There is a large ephemeral creek running the length of the property, and several of the large canyons hold water in holes on the bedrock after rains. There are two header dams on large drainages which hold water long after a rain.
There are two main water wells on the property, one near the makeshift cabin and one with a windmill that is 600 ft deep. The largest well is just inside the north property boundary adjacent to Hwy 90 at 1600-1800-ft deep with water pressure encountered at 440 ft with the completion of the well, the water level rose to 300 ft. Pilas or troughs are scattered across the property providing water for the few cattle and the various wildlife. This well could water the entire ranch, as it sits just below the highest point on the ranch!
The ranch is perimeter fenced with the exception of the eastern boundary. There is a large storage container turned "cabin" with septic next to the water well near the northern boundary. The road system is very good for this part of the state, and most of the ranch is accessible with ATV, UTV, or light truck. There is access off HWY 90 that access the cabin with septic and the water well. A road system could be put in place to access the center of the property. Additional access to the rest of the property is granted through an easement also off HWY 90 by a relative of the seller.
***Buyer Agents must make first contact and be present at all showings to participate in a commission split. If this condition is not met, Buyer Agent split is at sole discretion of Plateau Land Group, LP management. Each Keller Williams office is independently owned and operated***
