The Ford El Ranchero is a roughly 296-acre Hill County-like sanctuary designed for the avid hunter, outdoor enthusiast, and cattleman. The land resides not far from “the Gap”, an area known for its juniper hills, limestone creeks and fertile valleys. With an extensive system of walk-in gates, blind locations, and food plots, the property has been managed to maximize hunting opportunities for whitetail deer and feral hogs. The ranch also has a good perimeter fence, cross fences, and multiple stock tanks for the livestock producer. There is a buried co-op water line network running throughout the ranch with multiple taps, as well as large concrete lodge foundations and steel framework already in place at the best building site on the ranch. Expansive views abound, with Ilseng Mountain on the north and east, a distant Cranfills Gap to the west and valley views of the Neil’s Creek watershed to the south. LOCATION The ranch has great access to county road 4190 and county road 4185 and is located only 5 miles from Cranfills Gap and 20 miles from Meridian, the county seat of Bosque County. Both towns have many options for food, entertainment, and other necessities. Meridian is known as the “Top of the Hill County” and the landscape reflects that moniker. TOPOGRAPHY, RANGELAND & HABITAT Surrounded by hilltops, lush with grasslands, and bisected by an ephemeral creek, the Ford El Ranchero has a lot to offer. Improved and native pastures are the dominant landscapes, along with large stands of healthy hardwoods and juniper. The Boggy Branch headwaters of Neil’s Creek, a major tributary to the Bosque River, meander throughout the property. The low-lying bottom areas are verdant and productive. The highlands above are open, with ample motts of trees and views of the property and beyond. IMPROVEMENTS Improvements include a century old frame house, ready for rehabilitation, surrounded by great, old live oaks overlooking the wide pastures along creek bottoms. Adjacent are two new large slabs of concrete; one with the steel frames of a partially completed barn, and the one with undeveloped potential. There also is an extensive area of road base with multiple RV hook-up’s, ready for immediate use. The working area of the ranch has multiple old barns, an old silo, substantial cattle chutes, and the vintage lawn art of a Ford El Ranchero. An extensive network of waterlines flow throughout the property, with the opportunity to tap into them for guzzlers and troughs. The previous owner took time to improve the roads, with extensive layers of caleche for the main thorough fares. In addition to the enhanced fencing, roads, and tanks, the ranch has cattle chutes and barns designed to raise livestock.
