LOCATION/OVERVIEW: Herndon Ranch, is located approx. 24 miles northwest of Uvalde (airport, supplies: Wal-Mart, Uvalco, Oasis Outback, HEB, etc), Texas, fronting both sides of Ranch Road 334. Further, the ranch is located within a convenient 2 hour drive of San Antonio. The ranch features roughly 1.65 miles of frontage on both sides of 334, which bisects the property into two unique parcels. As such, the property can be sold as a package, or as two individual parcels. The total acreage is 2,015.85, per the most recent survey. However, the Ranch Road 334 right-of-way encumbers roughly 19.82 acres (per survey), resulting in net acreage of 1,996.03 +/-. This is comprised of approximately 971 +/- acres contained in the northern parcel and 1,025 +/- acres contained in the southern parcel. This property provides the opportunity to have the best of both worlds: proven permanent holes of water along the West Nueces River set against the backdrop of rugged, secluded hill country terrain coupled with gentle valleys with deep soils, strong native grasses, and cleared pasture, with numerous scattered, picturesque large live oaks.
IMPROVEMENTS: The ranch features minimal structural improvements, providing a blank canvas to potential owners to improve the ranch as they see fit. Located on the north portion of the property is the old ranch headquarters with a small, well-kept hunting cabin (720 sq ft), older set of corrals/barn and a very nice metal implement barn (30 x 120 ft). There are no structural improvements on the portion to the south of Ranch Road 334. Perimeter and cross fences are standard height and range from poor to average condition.
TERRAIN/VEGETATION: The north side tract primarily features deep soil flats with beautiful, large old oak trees, several large Indian middens, mesquite flats and graduating to hills on the north/northeast side. There are several wet water draws traversing the tract, which empty into the West Nueces River to the south. A portion of this parcel has been cleared with native brush, leaving only native grasses and large live oaks, providing a beautifully manicured setting. There is the potential for future, similar clearing/improvement. Elevation for the north parcel ranges from roughly 1,206 feet near the south end of the tract to roughly 1,486 feet in the northeast quadrant.
The south parcel features West Nueces River bottom with numerous large oak and pecan trees and another Indian midden. Moving southward from the highway frontage, the terrain transitions from flats/river bottom land to large, rocky hills with valleys populated by cedar, guajillo, black brush, and guayacan. Elevation for the south parcel ranges from roughly 1,200 feet in the river bottom to roughly 1,542 feet on a hilltop along the west property line of this tract.
WATER: There are no live water features associated with the north parcel. The south parcel features approximately 1.7 miles of frontage along both sides of the West Nueces River with a permanent water hole, known as the "Edwards Waterhole", which never went dry in recent historic drought. The river flows intermittently and provides a crystal-clear stream in times of adequate recharge rains.
Two water wells serve the south side for livestock and game and one water well at headquarters on north side distributes water to a network of troughs.
WILDLIFE: Both parcels feature an abundance of game. White tail deer, hogs, turkey, quail and axis deer have all been observed on both parcels.
MINERALS: Mineral conveyance is negotiable.
SUMMARY: The Herndon Ranch features superb access with an abundance of frontage along both sides of Ranch Road 334. This feature allows for the purchase of the entire ranch, or one of the two distinct parcels created by the highway bisecting the ranch. This ranch is a diamond in the rough with diverse, natural beauty created by a combination of large oak, cedar elm, and pecan trees along the River and flats, permanent live water, and a backdrop of majestic hills. Take your pick: a ranch with permanent live water, large hardwoods and unspoiled rugged hill country terrain (south parcel) or a ranch with 70% +/- deep soils and some of the most beautifully manicured live oak flats in the area (north parcel); or better yet, take both.
