Classic southern Lavaca County ranch with a mix of large live oaks, brush, and open grassland savannas.

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.

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. The ranch has frontage on Welhausen Road, a county maintained road, and is approximately 12 miles north of Highway 359. The ranch is 30 minutes from Freer, 45 minutes from Laredo, 2.5 Hours from San Antonio and 1hr 45 minutes from Corpus Christi. 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. The larger western portion of the ranch consists of roughly 2,600 acres of low fenced country while a 1,280 acre section was high fenced in 2017. 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. With 13 surface tanks located throughout the ranch you will have the opportunity to enjoy excellent traditional South Texas evening dove hunts over water. Some of these tanks are stocked with bass and catfish. Improvements: The Venado camp has basic improvements, with a barn, equipment shed, large overhead feed bin, cold storage, and quality pipe cattle pens. 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. As you enter the property you will gradually rise into rolling gravelly hills with peaks looking back to Laredo and the brush country of Webb County. The ranches soils vary from Aquilares Sandy loam, Modlia Clay Loam, Tela Sandy Loam, Maverick-Catarina Complex and Montell Clay. The brush diversity is superb with desirable species such as Granjeno, Guajillo, Guayacon, Blackbrush acacia, Palo Verde, Lote bush and many other South Texas natives. Minerals: This is a surface only sale. The sellers own no minerals. Price: Asking $5,433,300 or $1,400/acre.

Future Development Information: New Fairview Subdivision Development Procedure: Preliminary plat is submitted to the City Secretary. Plat goes through review process until approved by City Staff. Preliminary plat goes through City Council for approval. After preliminary plat is approved by City Council, construction documents and a Final Plat are submitted to City Secretary. Both items go through a review process until approved by City. Final plat is recommended for approval by City Council. Surety of Construction is provided. City Council approves Construction Documents. City Council also approves Final Plat but does not sign plat until construction is completed. Preconstruction Meeting is held with City Staff and Council. Construction Final project inspection, then record drawing submittal. City Inspection Team Recommends acceptance of the improvements to the City Council Surety for maintenance is provided. City accepts improvements and Final Plat is Signed and Filed. Due to the size of the subject property, the City of New Fairview will recommend submitting a Master Development Plan of the entire subject property prior to the preliminary plat submittal. Zoning The subject property is currently within the Agricultural Zoning District “A” , which requires a minimum lot size of 2 acres. A zoning change will be required. The City of New Fairview’s Comprehensive Plan states that the majority of future development will be dedicated to low density residential uses. Higher residential developments are not prohibited, but a planned development district would be required. Planned Development Districts (PD) are allowed in the City of New Fairview as a way to deviate from existing zoning district requirements. A development plan must be submitted as part of the PD application and any restrictions represented in the development plan will become part of the ordinance once the zoning change is approved by City Council.

The Single-Family zoning district permits a minimum lot size of 1 Acre and a maximum density of 1 dwelling unit per 2 acres. Thoroughfare Plan The City of New Fairview’s Thoroughfare Plan was provided as part of a comprehensive plan, which shows FM 407 (south of the subject) expanding to a undivided 4-lane principal arterial (P4U). FM 407 is currently an east-to-west 2-lane undivided collector (C2U). The proposed land use plan also proposes County Line Rd as a 4-lane undivided minor arterial (M4U). County Line Rd. currently is a smaller 2-lane road that runs North to south along the Wise and Denton county lines. The Future Land Use Plan identifies a 2-lane undivided collector (C2U) to be constructed parallel to FM 407. It will connect FM 2264 and County Line Road and provide access to the Highland Meadows subdivision to the west of the subject property. Utilities The City of New Fairview will be unable to provide water for the property because there is no current infrastructure in place to support development. Only a very small part the southern portion of the subject property is within the CCN Boundary of Aqua Texas, which has provided well water to the Highland Meadows subdivision, directly west of the property as well as to Kings Rest Estates, Diamond Ridge Subdivision and the Old Chisholm Estates to the south of the property. All neighboring systems utilize well water, and have separate distribution systems. The City of New Fairview does not have a water plant, and the nearest Aqua Texas treatment facility is in Justin. All developments in New Fairview utilize septic systems for wastewater service, and minimum size of lots for septic use is 1⁄2 acre in Wise County and 1 acre in Denton County.

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.

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.
