LOCATION/OVERVIEW: Tularosa Ranch (2693.6 +/-) offers end-of-the-road privacy and seclusion, being located in northeastern Kinney County, approximately 50 minutes in drive time from Uvalde (airport, supplies: Wal-Mart, Uvalco, Oasis Outback, HEB, etc) and 30 minutes from Brackettville. The ranch boasts frontage along both sides of pristine Spring Branch Creek and diverse terrain, ranging from deep soils with beautiful mature pecan trees along the creek bottom to native rolling to slightly rugged native hill country terrain. Tularosa Road (county-maintained gravel base public road) ends at the entrance to the ranch, which is located roughly 6.7 miles off the blacktop.
IMPROVEMENTS: The Tularosa Ranch headquarters sets upon the high bank next to Spring Branch Creek and consist of two very comfortable homes, being a main house containing roughly 2,032 square feet and a guest house featuring roughly 969 square feet, along with a hunting lodge facility which contains roughly 3,400 square feet. The hunting lodge is set up to entertain a crowd and is complete with walk in cooler and deer processing facility. An extra-nice 3,800 +/- square foot metal barn with concrete floor and roll up doors serves as a shop and parking area for ranch vehicles. The ranch features a combination of perimeter low and high-fencing and one low cross fence, with fence quality ranging from poor to very good. Functionality is the key with the improvements; while not opulent, they are more than adequate and set up to serve/entertain families or business clientele.
TERRAIN/VEGETATION: Tularosa Ranch has extreme variance in elevation from approximately 1,440 feet at the entrance to the highest point of approximately 2,079 feet atop Monte Peak, in the northeast corner of ranch. An excellent road system transverses large hills with wide valleys; aggressive cedar clearing program in previous years has yielded an extremely good grass cover with numerous large pinon pine trees throughout ranch. Browse vegetation consists of live oak, guajillo, black brush, Texas kidneywood, along with cenizo, soto, and mountain laurel.
WATER: Beautiful Spring Branch Creek traverses the western portion of the property for just under half a mile, with a large pecan grove and very large Indian midden adjacent. A strong spring is present along the creek and the creek bed on the property maintained a substantial, nearly-full water level throughout the worst stretches of the recent historic drought. This is a textbook example of permanent water. Two water wells serve the headquarters and a distribution system through the ranch for wildlife.
WILDLIFE: The ranch has always supported a healthy variety of wildlife consisting of white tail and axis deer, hogs, turkey, dove and quail. There are seven extremely nice executive hunting blinds with feeders that will convey with the property.
MINERALS: Mineral conveyance is negotiable.
SUMMARY: Tularosa Ranch features the ideal setup for a private getaway from urban life for a family retreat or would even make an excellent corporate hunting and fishing facility. If maximum privacy, proven permanent water, a combination of pecan bottoms and unspoiled hill country terrain, and turn-key improvements are what you desire, this is the place.
FINANCIAL/TITLE: Listing Price is $1,950/acre, or $5,252,520. Seller will provide current survey and basic title insurance. As stated, conveyance of all or part of owned mineral estate is negotiable.
