LAND & WILDLIFE
The property offers diverse upland and riparian woods dominated by Live Oak, Spanish Oak, Cedar Elm, Shinnery Oak, and other indigenous varieties, highlighted by gorgeous views and beautiful rock outcroppings along the drainages. The topography slopes from the northern boundary to the middle of the property, then rises back up towards the southern boundary. With its rolling terrain and beautiful woods, the property feels much larger than its actual size. With fantastic views of the surrounding area, there are an infinite number of potential homesites.
There are some smaller, localized spots of oak wilt on the north part of the ranch. White-tailed deer, Rio Grande turkey, and Mourning dove, and other native species of wildlife are abundant.
There is a significant seasonal creek that runs the length of the property for 5,659’ or 1.07 miles, flowing from the west to the east, with gorgeous cliffs and rock outcroppings at various points along its course. This creek drains into the Little Devils River to the east and off of the property. There are two other seasonal drainages that flow into the primary creek. The first runs for 987’ or 0.19 miles and flows from the north. The second runs for 1,050’ or 0.20 miles and flows from the south.
There is a 420 SF cabin sitting near the southwest corner of the property that has historically been utilized as a hunting cabin by lease hunters. There is external storage adjacent to the cabin as well as a small storage shed. The front of the cabin has a small covered porch and there is a nice rock fire pit just outside the front door. The cabin is not fancy, but fully functional. The cabin is serviced by CTEC for electricity and one (1) water well. Additional wells could be drilled on the property, as groundwater is good in the local area. The north, south, and west boundaries are fenced and are in average condition. There are an adequate number of typical ranch roads throughout the ranch, but leaving many sanctuary areas for wildlife untouched.
There is a 42” natural gas pipeline which runs for approximately 4,500’ or 0.85 miles through the property and sits within a 50’ permanent right-of-way. The pipeline enters near the NW corner and exits near the SE corner. The right-of-way is cleared and the rock has been crushed. While no permanent structures may be erected in the right-of-way, it offers good soils for wildlife food plots and multiple locations for hunting blinds.
The pipeline is operated by Permian Highway Pipeline, LLC (“PHP”). Kinder Morgan Texas Pipeline (KMTP), EagleClaw Midstream and Altus Midstream each hold an ownership interest in the project of approximately 26.66%, and an affiliate of an anchor shipper has a 20% interest. KMTP built and operates the pipeline.
