$18,500,000 • 10,900 acres
Situated in the picturesque Glass Mountains of West Texas, this showcase 10,900± acre ranch encompasses recreational and agricultural resources all in one package. The BOSS Ranch is unparalleled among west Texas ranches with its combination of diverse landscapes, highly developed water resources, exceptional wildlife, and grazing lands all with frontage along Highway 385. The property is a simple 7.2 mile drive to the quaint town of Marathon, home to the historic Gage Hotel, White Buffalo Bar, and 12 Gage Restaurant. There is a convenient FBO located 30 miles away in Alpine and commercial flights available 163 miles away in Midland.
The ranch climbs over 1,600’ from the flatlands at the entrance to the 5,839’ peak of Leonard Mountain. Multiple locations over 5,500’ are found across the northern portion of the property and look down to the lowland flats towards the center of the ranch. Improvements on the ranch are simple and low maintenance, yet highly functional. They consist of two residences, a modest hunting lodge, workshop, support buildings, and three sets of cattle pens.
Diversity of terrain and the extensive water system combine to support the cattle herd as well as resident wildlife herds. The ranch has an exceptional mule deer population, bountiful elk, and herds of aoudad are found throughout the property. Other species include javelina, and the occasional whitetail and pronghorn antelope. Big-game hunting is outstanding and generates a significant revenue stream for the current owner. The owner has historically run 200 animal units to promote resident wildlife, but believes the ranch could support a higher number if desired.
The BOSS Ranch is a gem of a property with a superior water system, extraordinary wildlife, fantastic grazing, and simple yet highly functional improvements in a gorgeous West Texas setting. The ranch has significant state classified minerals and a portion of the fee minerals are available with an acceptable offer.
