Brazos River Ranch 744+/- AC

Property Description: “..but if you go to the river (Brazos) at all…You tend not to be in a hurry there; you learned long since not to be.” – John Graves, Goodbye to a River: A Narrative. The Brazos River is a special place. Graves said it well many times over in his narrative of his journeys on the river as he recanted the many tales of Indians and settlers roaming the land in search of a way to provide for themselves and others in life. Few waterways in the state hold as much history, lore, beauty, and majesty. The opportunities to purchase land on the river, specifically in Palo Pinto County, are becoming increasingly rare. The Brazos River ranch is truly a unique opportunity. The ranch sits on the western side of the river as it makes its way around Village Bend and holds views of Village Bend and the surrounding terrain of Palo Pinto County that are nearly irreplaceable. This property has an incredible mix of cover, high bluffs, excellent river access, and wonderful pastures for grazing. A ranch of this caliber is a once in a lifetime opportunity and must be seen to truly appreciate the breathtaking awe that it holds. Location: The ranch is located in the heart of Palo Pinto County, just south of the town of Palo Pinto, TX, and a few miles north of I-20. With access and frontage on scenic HWY 4, the ranch is extremely easy to get to from many parts of the state. Land: The land that sits along the banks of the Brazos River is something that must be witnessed. Few waterways in this part of the state have diverse views of fertile bottom land, high rocky river bluffs, sandy banks, and lush plateaus on the hill tops of the Palo Pinto Mountains. Located in the Cross-Timbers Eco Region of the state, the property has a wonderful mix of native vegetation for grazing and wildlife, as well as a variety of tree species such as post oak, live oak, red oak, elm, cedar elm, mesquite, and juniper. Water: Situated in the John Graves Scenic Water Way, the mighty Brazos river is without a doubt the main water feature of the ranch. The river is very accessible from the property via a well-built road coming from the high bluffs all the way down to the river. Water is provided to the ranch improvements through a water collection system at the barn. Please discuss with listing brokers for more information on this process. There are stock tanks in several locations throughout the ranch for watering livestock. Terrain/Topography: The breathtaking views on the ranch overlooking the river, come from the diversity of terrain and habitat. The highest point on the ranch is approximately 1,210 +/- feet above sea level in the far northwest corner of the property, the high bluffs over the river sit at approximately 1,130 +/- feet above sea level, and the lowest point on the property is approximately 710 +/- feet above sea level along the banks of the Brazos River. Soil types on the property include Shatruce gravelly sandy loam, Bonti-Exray complex, and some Set clay. Improvements: The ranch is currently fenced, with several different pastures in place for rotating livestock and grazing cattle. There is a 2,200+/- ft fully enclosed barn with a downstairs full bathroom/laundry room, tool room and upstairs sleeping quarters. The barn has overhangs on 3 sides, one being a porch, one being used for equipment storage, and the third being used for horse runs between the barn and the arena. The arena is roughly 140 ft x 240 ft and is currently set up with a return alley, catch pens, and roping chutes. Adjacent to the arena, is a smaller pen for working cattle and livestock. Recreation,/Hunting: The ranch is especially well suited for endless recreational including biking, hiking, rock-climbing, fishing, and hunting (deer, turkey, dove, etc.). Enjoy sitting in a deer blind with your kids or grandkids and watch the world come to life as the sun rises.
