Beautiful Home With Producing Minerals In South TX


PRICE REDUCED! This ranch offers a real opportunity to live, work and play with the peace of mind that comes along with owning a portion of the mineral estate.  Even better, the producing oil well is not on the property so you don’t have to deal with the added traffic on your ranch.  The 4-bedroom 3 bath home is set back about 1/3 of a mile from the paved road for added privacy.  The area around the house is complemented by pecan, palm, oak and ash trees and is rounded out with a storage barn and several outbuildings.  The fertile soils and plentiful water make this property a great combination ranch for cattle, hunting, or farming.  The seller has planted watermelons in the past with great success!  The field is beginning to grow back with brush so there is enough cover for wildlife but still enough tillable area for food plots, etc.  There is also a thick stand of grass throughout the ranch that would support a small cattle operation.  As you drive further into the ranch, the brush becomes thicker with a variety of high protein browse for the native game.  In addition, this area is covered in dove and quail and some of the best dove hunting around can be found on this property!

The combination of the beautiful home, excellent soils, strong water well, potential to purchase producing minerals rights, and excellent location makes this property a rare find and a great investment.  Several pieces of equipment including a John Deere tractor, gooseneck trailer and horse trailer also convey.  Call me today to schedule a tour of this turnkey ranch!

Improvements:  The 3900 sf, 4-bedroom, 3 bath home built in 2004 has been well taken care of.  It is constructed with 2x6 lumber and extra thick insulation.  The cathedral ceilings and huge master bedroom give the home an open and majestic feel.  There are 2 AC units so the temperature can be adjusted separately on each side of the home.  There are also 2 hot water heaters and a water purification system.  The covered front porch is 10x50 with open arches that frame your view of the front pasture.  Two nicely built carports provide covered parking.  A +/- 1000 sf barn on a concrete slab is close to the home for storing equipment and tools.  There is a bathroom and shower in the barn.  There is an additional +/- 1000 sf of covered area next to the barn for parking tractors and vehicles.  A strong set of portable pens complete with a squeeze chute and loading ramp is next to the barn.  There is also a 12x16 and an 8x12 storage building.

Water:  2 Water wells.  One is a Carrizo well approximately 2300’ deep with a +/-3000 gal storage tank.  The other well is approximately 120’ deep and is a strong well.  There are two ponds.  Water is piped to both of the ponds.  One of the ponds is stocked with catfish and other baitfish and provides a beautiful setting surrounded by large hackberry and mesquite trees.   

Location:  1+/- hours from San Antonio and less than 2 miles outside of Dilley.  The ranch is accessed off of paved road FM 117.     

Wildlife:  Deer, turkey, dove, quail, and hogs. 

Minerals:  A percentage of the owned mineral rights are negotiable.  Seller believes to own 50%.
