Classic southern Lavaca County ranch with a mix of large live oaks, brush, and open grassland savannas. The ranch fronts Hwy 111 between Edna and Yoakum and is about an hour and forty minutes from downtown Houston.

There are plenty of huge oaks to provide food and cover for both the deer and turkey. Vast areas of native grasslands with mixed brush create good habitat and cover for bobwhite quail. Plenty of doves are in this area and with multiple small ponds available to hunt over the hunting can be excellent. While the ranch is very unimproved, with the groundwater and proper soils, it would be a great place to put in duck units or larger lakes for fishing and waterfowl hunting..

Rolling topography, surface water, large neighbors and vast expanses of native South Texas brushland! The Venado Ranch is an old fashion Webb County whitetail ranch with all native genetics, excellent mixed brush habitat and tons of topographic relief. The hilltops on the eastern portion of the ranch provide tremendous views and potential home sites. Originally part of the Walker Family land holdings of Webb County, this 3,881 acre tract was carved out by the current owners as the ranch they would put their stamp on. Heritage landowners border the property of which one is over 17,000 acres. Come see this great native country down the historic Welhausen Road. Location: The ranch is located in Webb County near Freer, Texas. It is approximately 7.1 miles South of Highway 59 traveling south out of Freer.

Wildlife and Hunting: With 100% native genetics, prime mixed brush and tons of surface water on this nearly 4,000 acres, you have the key elements of a trophy whitetail ranch.

At this time, no improved genetics have been placed inside the high fenced portion. Over the years, this ranch has been used as a family recreation property with the goals of maximizing the genetic potential of the whitetail herd. The largest buck known to have been taken in current ownership is 182”. The ranch is primed with new hunting blinds, feeders and widened roads. Other hunting opportunities include a booming population of blue quail, healthy numbers of bobwhite quail, javelina, hogs and predators.

There are three mobile homes of which two are connected by a family room. Water: One of the main limiting factors in this portion of Webb County is water. Fortunately for this property, there are 13 very deep surface tanks that hold water year in and year out. In the current owners time, only 2 have gone dry in the worst droughts. Additionally there are two solar wells (one is in need of repair) and 1 windmill with depths of 180’-220’. Topography, Terrain and Habitat: The property has excellent relief with elevation changes from 643’ on the west end to the highest point at 763’ on the east.

Location:  Headwaters Ranch is a short 6 miles down Elm Pass Road just south of Center Point, Texas. The ranch is located on a high set of hills that divide the Guadalupe and Medina River valleys. The ranch is equidistant between Kerrville, Comfort and Bandera providing great proximity to desirable amenities & shopping. The Ranch is only one hour from San Antonio and a tad under 2 hours from Austin. The Compound:   The “camphouse” compound concept uniquely designed by Lake|Flato Architects of San Antonio, Texas includes three separate yet integrated structures making you feel at home with nature. Living Area: The main living area is 1,157sf of open living space including the primary kitchen and a bathroom.  This are utilizes tremendous natural light and has a beautiful view of the lake. A 6-ton dry stack limestone fireplace is the focal point of the living area; the opposite side of the fireplace structure features a second outdoor fireplace as part of an outdoor living area. The outdoor living space is also equipped with a 50 ft long arbor covered in wisteria and set up for outdoor dining. Sleeping Space:  The sleeping area of the compound includes two bedrooms with beautiful picturesque views of the lake, one full bath and another kitchen.  The bedrooms are on one side of the breezeway and the bathroom and kitchen are situated on the other. At one end of the breezeway is a wooden deck with an outdoor shower overlooking a small flowing stream recirculating to and from the lake. Lake Cabana:  The lake cabana includes a wooden deck that overlooks the lake, perfect for a dinner on the water. In addition, there is a screened in porch area for dining, entertaining, or napping/sleeping in the pleasant hill country breezes. Just off the north side of the lake house is a custom outdoor fire pit, made from native stone, built by South African artisan, Attie Jonker. Just below the dam is a charming french kitchen garden. It is irrigated by discharge from the spring fed lake. Gazebo:   Sitting atop a point on Mt. Bliss is a custom des igned copper roofed gazebo. The views from the gazebo are second to none. Down a short rock path from the gazebo lies a hand crafted fire pit also built with native stone by the same South African artisan, Attie Jonker. Water:   The approximately 3 acre crystal clear lake, fed by the headwaters of Mason Creek as well as other springs and seeps, is a truly amazing feature to this ranch. The lake also provides numerous recreational activities including fishing, kayaking, wildlife viewing and swimming. The lake is approximately 35+ feet deep at its deepest point. During the worst of the most recent drought in 2011, the lake maintained good deep water. Terrain and Habitat:   The ranch has a balanced mixture of uplands, sloped hillsides and canyons that provide great habitat for wildlife and space for recreational activities. Flora and fauna typical of the hill country are found on the ranch. Tree species found on the ranch include a variety of oaks, cherry, ash, walnut, madrone, and ashe juniper. Hunting and Wildlife: Nestled high in the hills and surrounded for the most part by large landowners makes the Headwaters Ranch an ideal haven for wildlife. Both the hunter and wildlife  viewing enthusiast are at home here. Deep draws, riparian habitat and hilltop grassy plains provide adequate diversity in flora and terrain for a host of native and exotic species. Conservation Values:  The current owner of the ranch donated a conservation easement on this fabulous property to help conserve this unique part of Texas, also known as the Bandera Pass and Elm Pass Conservation Areas. A conservation oriented owner of this ranch will be completely at home with this easement in place as it provides for unhampered use and wide ranging recreational activity. Asking Price: $2,677,500

Highlights: TWO homes on one of the highest peaks in Anderson County with 360 degree views High fencing with predator wire Top end hunting blinds and feeders Two metal storage buildings Approximately $300,000 value in pine plantation Large Carrizo water well Improvements: This ranch is ideal for bringing in exotics and managing the trophy deer herd. There are over 5 miles of galvanized high fence around the perimeter of the ranch, complete with additional varmint guard wire buried two feet underground. This game fence is in excellent condition: there are no hogs on the ranch. There are two ranch style homes on this ranch and they are made in the same construction style, with similar materials. They are in excellent condition and have been very well maintained. 2015 home: 2,500 square feet of living area, not including the wrap around porch. This home has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, an office and workout studio, and of course the main living room and dining room. The living and main dining area is open to the second floor ceiling and the entire house has large windows with views out over the hilltop areas. The wood paneling is very comfortable and welcoming as well. 2007 home: 1,592 square feet of living area, not including the wrap around porch.

It is currently used for a ranch foreman’s home. Covered rifle range Wildlife: The white-tailed deer population is healthy and abundant across this high fenced game ranch. The owner introduced over 30 genetically superior deer from east Texas breeders Briar Lakes Ranch and Windy B Ranch into the property approximately 11 years ago, and he has carefully managed the wildlife since then. Most of the native deer were trapped and removed at the time of this initial stocking. Although this ranch is set up well to also be a commercial hunting property, it has only been hunted and used recreationally personally by the owner. The ranch was stocked once with quality whitetail deer but it has never been a deer breeding facility. It is currently classified as Level 3 in the Texas Managed Land Deer program, which provides for an extended hunting season and additional deer management opportunities through Texas Parks and Wildlife. Land: This ranch has one of the highest peaks in Anderson County, and this substantial hilltop has been groomed to allow for very far views in all directions; absolutely unmatched anywhere in Anderson County. There are two valuable pine plantation stands of approximately 155 acres on the north side of the ranch and 69 acres on the south that have been professionally managed by Mike Cline Forestry. These supplement the overall value of this ranch asset and also provide some potential tax advantages for the next owner. The balance of the acreage is comprised of a good blend of pines and other hardwood species for a diverse forage base and mix of cover for wildlife. There is a good road system throughout the ranch, yet most of the acreage has remained untouched for wildlife. The soils under the ranch are from the Cuthbert, Bowie, and Kirvin formations in the Western Coastal Plain soil region. These soils are highly weathered and acidic and support pine-hardwood vegetation, typically characterized by loblolly pine. Click here to view an interactive ranch hunting map. Water: Another value asset to the ranch is the deep and very productive water well, which historically produced approximately 450 gpm out of the deep Carrizo-Wilcox formation. The Camp Hill water well (TCEQ# 3820604) was drilled in 1968 to 1,840’ for a former oil and gas operator, and is approximately 13” in size. An existing well of this size can be advantageous not only because it would be very expensive to permit and drill, but it can also be used to irrigate and to supplement future water features on the ranch. Some have also considered this well to be the most prolific well in the area due to its location on the higher part of the hill and the gravity flow potential that comes with it. This well is currently not in use, and was recently supporting the landscape irrigation for the main house with a small solar pump. The ranch is within the Neches and Trinity Valleys Groundwater Conservation District. There are a few ponds scattered throughout the ranch, and the largest is approximately 4 acres in size. It is stocked with bass and bluegill, and has a wooden swimming dock and concrete spillway. The homes and barns are serviced by both well water and community water, and the ranch gets an average of 40” of rainfall annually. Location: The ranch is located in south central Anderson County, approximately 7 miles outside of Palestine. The drive is approximately 2 hours from Dallas, and 2.5 hours from Houston. It is accessed by paved Anderson County Road 153, which brings electric and water utilities as well as underground internet and phone service. Minerals: There is no production on the ranch, and the owner does not own any of the mineral estate. (Note that there are several old well locations that produced in the past and may show up on older aerial maps, but these have been plugged and abandoned, and the surface was remediated to its natural state.) Easements: There is one easement on the ranch. It is a buried gas line and is on the far eastern edge of the ranch. Significant ranch equipment and furniture are also available. Ask broker for details. Taxes: The ranch is taxed under a 1d1 valuation with a timber classification, and the annual property taxes are approximately $8,000. (It is taxed at the same rate as the agricultural valuation.) Shown by appointment only.
