Montell Summit is a very unique ranch that encompasses a tremendous amount of character. From the 500' of elevation change to the artifact filled pecan bottoms, to the 15 acre lake and numerous springs. If the drought earlier this year did anything for us here in Texas, it has highlighted the importance of water, and we were fortunate to have many springs that continued to flow and a healthy 15 acre lake. A chip sealed road is going in over the ridge line and will run from the front of the ranch to the back, allowing quick and easy access throughout. This is scheduled to be completed by the middle of April.

This area has a mix of alluvial soils very rich in nutrients from river flooding that create the ideal environment for the large pecans that dominate here. The middle acreage of the property is mostly the huge lake with rolling hay fields around it. The ground around the lake has been overlayed with sandy loam soils to create excellent and beautiful hay fields that are meticulously maintained.

Groundwater here is shallow and abundant, with the smaller well in the river bottom only 120 deep and pumping over 100 Gallon Per Minute. The crown jewel of the 4LJ3 ranch is the 220-acre lake. The lake was designed with recreation in mind, being very open to give ample room for water skiing, wakeboarding, jet skiing, and other boating activities. Along the banks, islands and ridges exist to provide fishing opportunities. A large boat dock with electricity and water and a paved boat launch make access to the lake ideal. The lake averages over 18 deep. There is mile of Colorado River frontage on the property and the river is accessible. ELECTRICITY Located on property, both single and three-phase. MINERALS None, no production. NOTES There is currently a neighbor running a gravel-loading operation on the property which does produce income for the ranch, but the operation may be canceled, and all the equipment removed with proper notice. There is fantastic potential to earn further income from the hundreds of large pecan trees in the river bottom and with all the sporting activities this ranch would be a great rental.

The elevation generally slopes from north to south and ranges from 1,070’ along the Llano River, up to 1,120’ in the northern pasture areas of the property. The homestead, which sits on the La Hacienda Rio tract, was strategically placed on an isolated hill that is 1,135’ at its peak. Soils consist primarily of deep, fine and course sandy loam throughout the property, which are ideal for wildlife food plot development. There are striking granite rock formations throughout the ranch, the most notable being a 25’ high monolith that sits on the Rancho El Aguila tract. With a basal area of about ½ acre, this rock structure is an easy climb and offers fantastic views of the surrounding Llano River valley.

Deer are abundant on the ranch, but it is not overpopulated. The ranch has been very lightly grazed by livestock and the deer herd has been kept in check with the habitat, which provides excellent quality and quantities of forage below 6 feet, hiding and escape cover, and thermal cover. Other game species commonly seen on the property include Rio Grande turkey, mourning & white-wing doves, feral hogs, and occasionally Bobwhite quail. Other indigenous wildlife species such as migratory waterfowl, raptors, songbirds, various small mammals, and reptiles are also abundant and are commonly seen.   IMPROVEMENTS Ranch House, Barns, & Electricity The original homestead house, built in 1923, still stands on the La Hacienda Rio tract and is still in use by the landowner.
