NUECES CREEK RANCH - PRICE REDUCED!
LOCATION: This diverse, scenic ranch is located in northeast Kinney County and has frontage along Nueces River Road, with some frontage being along both sides of the gravel-base, county-maintained road. The main entrance to the ranch is approximately 3,200 feet +/-, or 0.60 of a mile north/northwest of FM 334. This is approximately 20 miles northeast of Brackettville (county seat, restaurants, services), 32 miles northwest of Uvalde (restaurants, golf, shopping, supplies/big-box retailers, services, hospital, airport, etc.) and just over 2 hours west of San Antonio. The adjoiners include a nice mix of small and large ranches. The area is rural in nature, providing the peace and tranquility desired by those seeking a relaxing getaway that is just far enough from an urban setting, but not so far as to be a travel burden.
Ranches in the area are primarily utilized for ranching and hunting operations, with a select few, including Nueces Creek Ranch, offering unique water recreation prospects in the form of unspoiled, crystal clear water features that lie amongst gently rolling to rugged hills and bluffs.
WATER: The spring-fed West Prong of the Nueces River traverses the north end of the property and a small amount of the southeast portion of the ranch fronts the West Nueces. In total, there is approximately 6,400 feet +/- of frontage, with approximately half being on both sides and the other half being to the banks or center line of the West Nueces. Despite the recent extreme drought conditions, there are still three distinct, fresh holes of water present that have never been known to go dry. As of August 2014, it was observed that several areas along these water holes were only 2-3 below observable watermark lines from normal times. The river frontage along the north end of the property features scenic high bluffs overlooking the crystal-clear holes of water. (Note that some photos of ranch's water features are from May 2012, when drought conditions were less extreme that at present, but still far from 'normal')
In addition to the West Nueces Frontage, Nueces Creek, which is a wet-weather creek, traverses the southern portion of the ranch in a west-east direction.
There are a total of three water wells present, two of which feature electric submersible pumps and one of which features a solar-powered pump.
LAND/VEGETATION: The far southeaster portion of the ranch features a large field, which is frequented by a variety of wildlife, including Rio Grande Turkey, whitetail deer, Blackbuck, and Axis. The southern half of the property is gently rolling along the Nueces Creek watershed, with two large food plots located at the southwest quadrant, abundant native grasses, and native brush and tree cover ranging from light to moderate density. Food plots feature minimal regrowth of mesquite and huisache. The southern half of the ranch features a combination of deep, black soil with areas of rock outcrops. Moving towards the northern half of the ranch, the elevation gradually increases and becomes more rugged/rocky, with dense brush cover. A high bluff along the West Nueces runs in a roughly west to east direction, offering grand views and numerous potential locations for a lodge or home. The highest point on the ranch is located at the northwest corner and offers breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding hills and mountains of the West Nueces River canyon as far as the eye can see. The ranch features several Indian mounds. Vegetation on the ranch consists of live oak, cedar, mesquite, persimmon, huisache, blackbrush, guajillo, and guayacan, among other native species.
IMPROVEMENTS: Nueces Creek Ranch is adequately improved, featuring a well-kept, fully-furnished home with stucco faade and metal roof, carport, storage building, and fenced yard. In addition, there is a set of old working pens/barns at the main headquarters, as well as a metal implement storage building/workshop with slab floor and approximately 14 eave height. There is also a mobile home present near the headquarters, which will convey. The headquarters and approximately 150 +/- acres are high-fenced for game management/breeding. The remainder of the ranch is low-fenced.
