The ± 2,330-acre Reward Ranch, on The Divide near Garven’s Store, is the best priced ranch located within 45 minutes of Kerrville. The ranch, which gets its name because it sits in both Real and Edwards counties, fronts Highway 41 providing the ultimate combination of privacy and convenience. A paved road runs from the entrance to the headquarters; crushed stone roads around the perimeter and throughout the ranch make accessibility easy. The ranch, which features rolling pastures resplendent with native grass and live oaks as well as 2 fields suitable for cultivation as either hay meadows or food plots, is a testimony to pioneering stewardship that can be traced back to the early 1900s when the historic ranch was founded. Throughout most of its history, the ranch was used as a livestock operation and still maintains the infrastructure of working pens, barns, a cedar stay round pen for horses, and excellent water distribution thanks to 2 water wells and a windmill. Two additional storage tanks could be hooked up to further develop the water. Most recently, though, the low-fenced ranch has been rested and refocused on wildlife. Native game includes white-tailed deer and turkey. Free-ranging exotics such as blackbuck antelope and axis deer come and go. In addition to the ranch infrastructure, the headquarters compound includes two main ranch houses and a wrangler’s house. The original ranch house, which boasts 4 bedrooms and 2 baths, was completely updated recently to include granite counter tops, wood floors and a new heating and cooling system. Its front porch is a place people want to gather as the late evening disappears into the night. With the nearest light pollution half a county away, the night sky is majestic. For those looking to put their own stamp on Reward Ranch, the rolling terrain offers several potential building sites with memorable Hill Country views. Just an hour and a half from the San Antonio International Airport, Reward Ranch’s large-scale landscape offers the best of the Hill Country along with convenient interstate access to Kerrville and San Antonio. It’s an easy drive to serenity. Call Howard W. Hood at (830) 739-3815 to experience the Reward Ranch for yourself. It is available for $2,650/acre.

An array of exotics including scimitar-horned oryx, zebra, axis and fallow thrive alongside other native species such as dove, turkey and waterfowl. While the land makes a statement, the water makes the ranch, with over 6 stocked lakes ranging from 5 to 30 acres. With over 80-acres of surface water, the ranch also fronts the Llano River for more than a ½ mile. The ± 4,000 sq. foot Hunter’s Lodge wraps hunting clients in rugged, luxury.

The ± 4,624-acre Jacalon Ranch, located about 20 minutes from Hebbronville on the southeastern corner of Webb and northeastern corner of Zapata counties, is the South Texas ranch that wildlife enthusiasts dream of. The low-fenced ranch, surrounded by sprawling historic ranches, is home to exceptional whitetail and quail (both bobs and blues) hunting. Dove and waterfowl are abundant in their seasons. Thriving wildlife populations are a combination of exceptional habitat and effective, conscientious game management. The Jacalon Ranch, that traces its beginnings to the Jose Vasquez Borrego Spanish land grant issued in the 1760s, benefits from both. The trophy whitetail herd is managed under a MLD Level III Permit. For the past six seasons, limited hunting pressure has been applied. The diverse soil (Brundage Fine Sandy Loam, Copita Fine Sandy Loam, Hebbronville Loamy Fine Sand, Maverick-Catarina Complex, Zapata-Outcrop Complex and Gently Undulating) produces diverse vegetation delivering a natural buffet of high-energy, high-protein browse and forbs that grow robust animals. It is a rare ranch that encompasses so much diverse soil, topography and habitat. The Jacalon Ranch is in an ecological transition zone marked by the Bordas Escarpment that runs through the upper portion of the ranch. It brings together the famous red sandy country, brush motts and savannah grasslands of the Coastal Plains with the rolling hills and flatlands typical of this region of South Texas. Thanks to the escarpment the ranch also offers stunning views. On clear days, you can see Mexico’s Sierra Madre Mountains—and they’re 125 miles away. Even the strongest habitat can’t support wildlife without water. Fortunately, the Jacalon Ranch delivers with four wells, 7 stock tanks, and several creeks distributed throughout. A windmill, located near the ranch entrance, pulls from a well at 200 feet. Two more newly drilled wells that hit water at 400 feet are in the same general area and offer 4,500 gallons of storage. These wells, which flow at approximately 10 – 15 gpm each, have excellent quality drinking water. The fourth well, near the center of the ranch, extends 1,050 feet deep and provides water for wildlife, livestock and filling tanks at a rate of ± 40 gpm. FM 649 provides road frontage access to the ranch and its centerpiece, the Jacalon Ranch Lodge beautifully appointed with Spanish and Southwestern furniture and décor befitting its history and location. The lodge boasts 11 suites each with a private bath. The suites join the soaring two-story main building; the complex is equipped with telephone, high-speed internet and dish satellite. Designed to easily handle a crowd, the lodge includes a modern kitchen, a large dining room and bar area, a utility room and a full bath in the common area. Guests can enjoy a fire pit and an outdoor seating area in the midst of a native landscape oasis. A rain catchment system with an 8,000 gallon capacity helps meet water needs. To make coming and going even easier, the Jacalon Ranch Runway, a private/restricted 3,900 foot turf runway (TE89), is located adjacent to the lodge. Jim Hogg County Airport, with a paved and lighted 5,000 foot runaway, is 20 minutes away and the Laredo International Airport, which handles private and commercial flights, is 40 minutes away. The Jacalon Ranch is the stuff of a wildlife enthusiasts’ dreams—but it’s real. To experience the Jacalon Ranch for yourself, contact Howard W. Hood at 830-739-3815. Available for $1,450/acre.

$6,750,000  •  388 acres
The Lucky A Ranch, located six miles east of Navasota in the rolling hills of Grimes County, is ±388 acres of thoughtfully customized perfection. The property is fronted by a mile of CR 446 on its eastern border and a half-mile of CR 407 on it southern border, making access easy. This quiet, beautiful getaway is about 72 miles from the big city amenities of Houston and about 25 miles from the small city amenities of College Station. As you roll through the Lucky A’s notable rock and iron work entrance and drive to the main compound along a live oak lined lane reminiscent of the plantation entrances of the Deep South, you immediately know you are somewhere special where no detail has been left to chance. The Land The four-bar pipe fences that are prominent throughout the ranch create the impression of solidity, while allowing you to view the manicured, improved pastures with their productive mix of Bahiagrass and Coastal Bermuda. Majestic trees including oaks, pecan, ash, elm and pine dot the landscape. The current owners have planted at least 50 live oaks, including two that are grafts from Texas A&M’s beloved Century Oak. About 30 percent of the ranch is wooded creating a wildlife oasis that provides habitat for white-tailed deer, squirrels, foxes, coyotes, rabbits and other native small game. Cut trails meander through the woods prompting exploration on foot, horseback, mountain bikes or ATVs. Dove are plentiful. Feral hogs are also abundant in the area, so the ranch’s inner fences are StayTite wire to help protect the pastures and hay meadows from destruction. Water is plentiful. In fact, every pasture has either a lake, stock tank or water trough to provide for livestock and wildlife. For anglers, the ranch has two show-stopping, spring-fed lakes each 5 acres or larger. The lakes were professionally stocked with Florida bass, crappie and blue gill to create a freshwater angler’s paradise. In addition, there are 3 spring-fed stock tanks, several springs, and 3 wells (two working and one capped). The turnkey ranch was designed to accommodate a purebred cow-calf operation, but the improvements and infrastructure make it ideal for a horse farm or a self-sufficient country getaway with the income generating potential of an annual, high-quality hay crop that ranges between 300 and 400 rolls each year and/or a grazing lease. With average rainfall, the land’s carrying capacity is about 200 cows. A fenced lane transects the property. A gate in each pasture and trap directly connects the grazing lands to the lane, so livestock can be moved to the lighted and covered central working facility with ease. The working facility also includes an air-conditioned lab designed for work such as artificial insemination and embryo transfer. Most of the ranch equipment including tractors, a round baler, a square baler, 2 MoCo cutters, a rake and a shredder will transfer with the sale. The Home Like the cathedrals of old, the ±5,000 square foot house, built from Oklahoma doeskin stone, is a testament to fine craftsmanship. The area’s best stoneworkers, granite installers and wood workers labored for individual stints measured in years. Because no detail was overlooked, the home’s construction process engaged builders and skilled craftsmen from 2006 to the home’s completion in 2010. The result is magnificent, one-of-a-kind rustic elegance where even the windowsills are granite in the 3-bedroom (plus a flex room and office)/3.5 bathroom house. The abundant granite found on countertops throughout, office desktops, as well as in the walk-in shower and the expansive surround for the 6-foot cast iron tub, and the hand-built, custom wood work featuring light-stained ash including all trim and cabinetry make a strong design statement. The heft of the wood and granite is offset by the natural light, soaring ceilings, open design and neutral color palette, which gives the home a decidedly airy feel. Handcrafted antler chandeliers further illuminate the space. Guests are greeted by a 3-tiered antler chandelier in the entryway and the antler-theme is continued with the chandeliers in the breakfast room, formal living room, and formal dining room. The den, which is also home to an impressive stone fireplace outfitted with a Heatilator, features a double-wagon wheel chandelier. The all-electric kitchen with its custom cabinetry and large walk-in pantry combines form and function. All appliances are Wolf or Subzero. The house also boasts a large laundry and four high-efficiency Trane heatpumps. While the home is perfect for entertaining family and friends, the outdoors beckons. The front and back porches that encompass a total of 1,625 square feet of shaded living space, overlook the professionally landscaped grounds, which are kept green by a Hunter irrigation system. Majestic live oaks surround the house. A 24’x40’ covered patio provides a natural gathering spot in the backyard just steps from the house. In addition to a wood burning fireplace and 6-foot Bull barbeque pit, the patio includes a granite bar and 9-foot granite-topped table as well a sink, ceiling fans and a hand-crafted cedar ceiling. An attached, oversized 3-car garage, which can easily accommodate 3 Ford F-350 pickups, provides ample cover and storage. It, too, features custom wood work and hand-selected granite. The Infrastructure The ranch’s infrastructure is as well-built and well-planned as the home. Excluding the covered cattle working facility, there are 7 metal outbuildings including: a hay barn (40’x100’ foot with a 30’ lean-to), a combination equipment/hay barn (150’x125’ with a 20’unpaved lean-to provide covered storage for heavy equipment), feed room/storage building (25’x80’), RV storage building (45’x50’ with water, sewer and electrical hook-ups inside), air-conditioned workshop (22’x30’), an air-conditioned, insulated “flex” building (40’x25’ with a 14’ rollup door and 36” walk-in door that can be used as climate-controlled storage, a game room or home to an antique car collection), and a “3-sided” storage building (45’x50’ and attached to the back of the “flex” building.) All are constructed on concrete pads that are at least 6 inches and reinforced for heavy-duty use. In areas where livestock can damage the metal, the buildings are surrounded by reclaimed highway bridge railing to protect the building’s sides. The amount of covered space ensures that all hay and ranch equipment can be stored beneath a roof. The Opportunity Lucky A Ranch offers the opportunity to immediately embrace ranch living and ranch life. To experience this one-of-a-kind property, contact Howard W. Hood at (830) 739-3815. The Lucky A Ranch is available for $7.5 million.
