$1,695,000 • 292 acres
For hunters, exotic game enthusiasts and western equestrians, the ±292-acre Rockin' S Ranch, located three miles south of Menard on Highway 83, is the destination of a lifetime.
The low-fenced property, nestled in a region of Texas where agriculture and open space still reign, is neighbored by large ranches. Privacy and elbow room are plentiful. Nearby San Angelo (±66 miles) and Brady (± 31 miles) put the conveniences of larger towns within easy reach.
And while the ranch feels a world away from metropolitan hustle and bustle, the newly constructed, custom-designed main entrance, which features an electric gate, is only a two-hour drive from San Antonio and just about two-and-a-half hours from Austin.
Live oak mottes and small clumps of cedar dot the rolling terrain. The brush has been carefully sculpted so that patches of wildlife habitat providing food and cover are interspersed with open, native range. Game includes native white-tailed deer and free-ranging Axis.
Good ranch roads give easy access to the entire ranch.
Currently used for breeding exotic game, the ranch features a 12-acre, high-fenced breeding pen outfitted to meet the animals' water needs.
A windmill, equipped with a storage tank, provides water for wildlife in an in-ground water trough. The storage tank is also connected to the rain collection system at the ranch's log cabin as a back-up water supply. An RO system, located in the pump house, purifies the water for the dwelling.
The one-bedroom/one-bath log cabin includes a kitchen (all appliances convey) and a living space. Situated on a hill overlooking an open pasture, the cabin's 48-foot back porch is an ideal location to watch wildlife as the sun puts on the daily display that makes West Texas sunsets legendary. Another porch of equal size overlooks the northeast side of the ranch.
Those who enjoy horses will appreciate the riding/roping arena, round pen, tack shed and riding trails.
Two broadcast game feeders and two fiberglass hunting blinds will convey with the sale. The current inventory of exotic hoofstock can be negotiated and purchased separately. The ranch lies within the Menard ISD. Cell phones and internet are operable at the Rockin' S.
Whether you're looking to get away for the weekend or to embrace the rural lifestyle full-time, the Rockin' S Ranch is a worthy place to stake a claim.
