This historic ranch, named after the famous suspended Regency Bridge often called the Swinging Bridge is a one of a kind property. As unique as its namesake, the Regency Ranch has more diversity than you would normally find on approximately 354 acres. This ranch is producing as both a game ranch and agriculture production and endless recreational enjoyment. Regency Ranch offers something for everyone from hunting, fishing, growing, grazing, and outdoor recreation.
Location: Regency Ranch is located on the north bank of the Colorado River just across the famous suspension bridge on the Mills County side of the river in the community known as Regency. There is an abundance of frontage providing ease of access along both CR 432 and CR 433. (see map)
Improvements: Comfortable lodging consists of a Rock Ranch home with approximately 1800sf with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Additionally, a bunkhouse provides sleeping quarters for hunters and guests. The house features open porches and a huge patio with a fire pit to enjoy.
Adjacent to the rock home is a processing facility featuring a walk-in cooler. There are two 10x40 storage containers wired with electricity. There is a huge older working drive through working barn with a shop room and additional small apartment type room. Another hay barn and nice chicken/exotic barn with full corrals and high fenced area for stock or hay. A huge grain silo with a concrete floor is also near the barn. The majority of the property features game fencing and also has 4 high fenced 1-3 acre pens used for exotics and/or food plots.
Water: Water is the keynote of this ranch! Featuring historic deeded water rights to the Colorado River, owners are offering conveyance of 150 acre feet of water rights for irrigation and another 30 acre feet for the large lake. These are some of the oldest water rights in Texas and the owners believe to have a priority date of around 1913.
There is one working windmill and a producing water well along with a pressure system from the lake to the house wells.
There are 5 good stock tanks/lakes. 2 are heavily stocked with Largemouth Bass, Channel Catfish, Perch and minnows. The main lake is estimated around 5 acres. And there is approximately 1,900 ft of river frontage along the Colorado River.
Wild Game: Regency Ranch features a complete hunting operation with a complete stocking of exotics and premium whitetails. Exotics presently on the ranch include Axis, Blackbuck, Red Stag and Fallow Deer with a handful of Gemsbok and Impala. Whitetail Deer genetics are primarily South Texas lines including Marty Berry lines, Gladiator, Express, Dreambuck, Machen, Dugger and Ground Zero. Owners have reportedly killed several 200+ bucks and some with 30+ spreads.
The ranch features very well managed habitat with both improved and native vegetation for optimal wildlife production. Hunting outside the high fence for Whitetails, turkey and Hogs are also great. Its like having 2 separate hunting ranches. Heavy draws and huge Live oak trees along with open mesquite areas cover the Ranch for a perfect balance of cover versus pasture.
Agriculture Production: Irrigation is provided by a fully functional Zimmatic pivot system that runs off of a German Engine from water rights out of the River that covers approximately 55-60 acres that is planted in Tifton 85. Hay production typically produces 3-4 cutting of Tifton yielding 125-200 round bales per cutting. There is a second pivot the owners have never operated that could potentially be functional. The pump also will flood the 10-15 acre Pecan Orchard with approximately 100 large pecan trees which are currently producing on the property.
Regency Ranch features some of the most productive soils in the area. Along with the irrigation available the ranch would be great for a producing vineyard or expanding the current pecan orchard. The ranch is also proven to have above normal grazing capacity and annually produces great stands of wheat and oats for supplemental grazing for the cattle on the property.
Minerals: In addition to the water rights being conveyed, the owners are offering to convey 50% of the subsurface minerals as well as surface rights control.
Furnishings and Equipment: All furnishings, equipment, and exotics are negotiable depending upon selling price.
Additional Acreage: Non-contiguous 5 acres of park like river frontage with pecan grove will also be offered separately at $199,000
Its hard to pack more opportunity into a ranch this size! This ranch could function as a business with ag and hunting income or would make the ultimate recreational property. The water that goes with this property will be a valuable resource in years to come. Come see it before its gone!
