The Hilseweck Ranch spans approximately 10,218 acres in northwestern Pittsburgh County, Oklahoma. Conveniently located near Stuart, McAlester, and Tulsa, it offers easy access from Buffalo Road, with close proximity to U.S. Highway 270 and well-maintained county roads that traverse the property. The various gravel and ranch roads provide significant interior access, making it possible to navigate the entire ranch. With a diversity of moderately sloping to abruptly changing terrain, the ranch maintains a mountainous feel throughout much of the property. The northern half of the ranch drains into the Canadian River, while Beaver Creek’s headwaters flow through the middle, contributing to the property's character and scenery.

The property is primarily thick brush and timber, with approximately 50 percent pine and 50 percent variety of oak, cottonwood, and elm, among others. The ranch offers a diverse habitat with vegetation, water, and elevation.

The New Year Creek Ranch is a spectacular live water ranch located just north of Chappell Hill in one of the most sought-after areas of the county and in proximity to both Houston and Austin. This ranch is a fantastic opportunity for a long-term investor, an end user wanting the convenience of the location, or a developer. In addition to over 3/4 of a mile of free-flowing New Year Creek, the ranch offers extensive pasturelands, wonderful woodlands, rolling terrain, and spring-fed ponds allowing for extensive agricultural, equestrian, and recreational opportunities. LOCATION The New Year Creek Ranch is located about 3 miles from the charming community of Chappell Hill, 10 miles from Brenham (where grocery, medical, and home improvement options are available), about 60 miles from Houston, and only 98 miles to Austin. The ranch has extensive frontage on FM 1155 (~4,550) and on South Meyersville and North Meyersville Roads (over 2 miles). TOPOGRAPHY, RANGELAND & HABITAT The varied yet pastoral terrain, rangelands, and wildlife habitat of the New Year Creek Ranch have welcomed many different uses over the years from cattle grazing to recreational hunting to periodically hosting a fox hunt on horseback with foxhounds. With over 100 of elevation changes across the ranch, the rolling terrain includes four distinct drainages and incredible trees, including live oaks, water oaks, post oaks, pecans and elms. Multiple hilltops offer tremendous 360-degree views that are truly breathtaking. Only about 172 acres, generally along New Year Creek, are located in the FEMA floodplain. WILDLIFE The ranch enjoys populations of wildlife including great white-tailed deer numbers, a few quail, dove, and some limited waterfowl; as well as feral hogs and predators. AGRICULTURE Currently, the ranch is leased to an area grazer who runs cattle on New Year Creek Ranch. The owner also keeps a small Wagyu herd and some horses on the ranch. IMPROVEMENTS The ranch is improved with a unique multi-story hilltop home with commanding views of the ranch and surrounding countryside. The headquarters area where the home also includes an enclosed barn, a shed, and other necessary infrastructure for ranching operations. WATER The ranch is watered by the 3/4 of a mile of live water New Year Creek, numerous stock ponds (several being spring fed), and 2 water wells servicing the home and headquarters area as well as some distribution to troughs. The ranch is situated over the Gulf Coast Aquifer with plentiful and relatively shallow (100 150) groundwater. ELECTRICITY The ranch has electrical service at the headquarters and on numerous other portions of the ranch. AREA HISTORY Washington County played an extensive role in Texas History, too much to include here, but it is interesting to note that artifacts from the Paleo-Indian culture have been found in the area that is now Washington County, indicating that it has been occupied by humans for perhaps 9,000 years or more. Early Indian residents most likely included the Tamique and Xaraname tribes, who inhabited the prairie between the Tonkawas of Central Texas and the coastal-dwelling Karankawas. Early frontiersmen found Tonkawas living in permanent settlements in the central portion of the area that is now Washington County and encountered transient Arananamus and Apaches in the area (Source: TSHA Online). On the ranch, a site is suspected to be a significant mound feature that has not been thoroughly investigated. With minimal floodplain, multiple amazing views, and tons of road frontage, this ranch would be a great long-term investment for future development. The ranch has several high-end developments next door and this area of Chappell Hill is growing at a very fast rate.

WATER The Llano River This beautiful ranch sits along the north bank of the Llano River, with a total of 3,940’ or 0.75 miles of direct river frontage. The defining feature of this river property that rises above any other is PRIVACY! Unlike other properties, there is not a nearby county road running parallel and along the river. This is an offering of large, contiguous blocks of land with large neighbors. From west to east, the divided parcels have the following amount of river frontage: Rancho Rio Ruidoso - 1,185’ or 0.22 miles La Hacienda Rio - 1,955’ or 0.37 miles Rancho El Aguila - 800’ or 0.15 miles Known for its clear water, continuous flow, and shallow rapids flowing over beautiful granite rock formations into larger pools of deep water, the Llano River is a 105-mile-long tributary of the Colorado River. Kayaking, canoeing, swimming, floating, paddle boarding, and fishing can be enjoyed by your entire family. Largemouth bass, Guadalupe bass, channel catfish, blue catfish, and many species of sunfish are native to the river. San Fernando Creek San Fernando Creek enters the West Tract along its northern boundary and flows to the east, generally bisecting each tract, and exits the property along the west boundary of the East Tract. San Fernando Creek is seasonal and will typically have stronger water flow in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. Gorgeous, mature Live oak and Pecan trees line the banks on both sides. The creek bed consists of decomposed granite sand with a striking pinkish hue and is dotted with scattered granite outcroppings along its course. There are multiple locations along the creek with deeper pools that are fed by springs and these spots generally hold water during much of the year. Generally, the creek bed is 200’ to 300’ in width, but does expand up to 500’ in certain areas. The creek runs for a total of 6,865’ or 1.30 miles through the property. The West Tract (277.29 ac) has 3,215’ of creek frontage, with roughly 76-ac on the north side of the creek and 201-ac on the south side. The East Tract (281.11 ac) has 3,650’ of creek frontage, with roughly 189-ac on the north side of the creek and 92-ac on the south side. Ponds, Secondary Creeks & Water Wells Rancho Rio Ruidoso (118.07 ac) There is a secondary creek, lined with intricate granite outcroppings, that enters this portion of the property along the west boundary, then turns south and eventually flows into the Llano River. Along this 4,420’ creek, there are three (3) concrete “spreader” dams that back up water seasonally. The largest is a 0.30 pond on the upper end of the drainage. There is also a 0.25 ac pond with an earthen dam near the west fence line. There are no water wells on this tract. La Hacienda Rio (125.95 ac) Just northwest of the homestead, there is one (1) 0.15 ac earthen pond, surrounded by open pasture. There are no secondary creeks on this tract. There is one (1) water well on this section of the ranch, which provides potable water to the homestead. Rancho El Aguila (62.54 ac) There are three (3) ponds that lie in a north-south chain, almost in the center of this section of the property. The first is a small 0.15 ac pond, then a larger 1.50 ac pond, and finally a 0.50 ac pond. Sitting just south of the last pond is a windmill water well not in operation. There are no secondary creeks on this part of the ranch. San Fernando Creek Ranch There are four (4) ponds on the ranch; two (2) on the West Tract and two (2) on the East Tract. The West Tract ponds are 0.25 ac and 1.50 ac in size at full pool. Both ponds sit on the southside of San Fernando Creek. The East Tract ponds are 0.10 ac and 1.50 ac in size at full pool. The smaller East Tract pond is on the north side of San Fernando Creek and sits adjacent to a water well pumped by a windmill. The larger pond sits on the south side of San Fernando Creek. There is another water well serviced by a windmill that sits near the northeast corner of the East Tract. Both water wells have concrete water troughs and are fully operational. LAND The habitat throughout the property consists of an undulating, oak dominated savannah, interspersed with other native tree, brush, and grass species such as Texas persimmon, Mesquite, Cedar elm, Black hickory, Beebrush, and Little bluestem. Live oak is the primary and most visible oak species, with healthy amounts of Post oak, Blackjack oak, and Shinnery oak also present. 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. WILDLIFE Llano County is known as the “Deer Capital of Texas” and boasts a county-level population density of over 290 white-tailed deer per thousand acres. 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. This 3-bedroom, 2-bath bungalow-style home has 1,706 SqFt of living space and a 154 SqFt covered front porch. A 2-car garage with a workshop/storage space sits adjacent to the house. There is one (1) larger sized metal barn just south of the house that is roughly 2,080 SqFt and is currently used to store a tractor and other equipment. There are three (3) additional smaller metal storage sheds on the ranch. Electricity has been extended into each component section of the property and is provided by CTEC. Fencing & Roads All sections of the ranch have perimeter fencing and it is in good condition. The south fence sits roughly 300’ north of the edge of the river to protect it from fast moving water during times of flooding. There are typical ranch roads in good condition throughout the ranch. There is not north-south fence separating the West tract and the East tract on San Fernando Creek Ranch. All of the river tracts have cross fencing and below is the acreage breakdown of each sub-pasture within in each section.

Family and friends will appreciate the attention to detail throughout the ranch's improvements after enjoying all this ranch has to offer. Found at the midway point between Austin, Houston, and San Antonio, the ranch is perfectly located for long-term growth. It is extremely rare that a 200+ surface acre lake can ever be found anywhere in Texas, making this ranch unique. LOCATION The ranch is located seven miles south of Columbus on paved county road 101. Less than an hour and a half from Austin, Houston, and San Antonio. TOPOGRAPHY, RANGELAND & HABITAT The 4LJ3 ranch is a diverse property with several different ecological areas that offer a variety of habitats. The housing compound area consists of manicured yards with historical live oaks throughout approximately 90 acres. This area is a sandy loam soil type, ideal for growing grasses and huge trees with good drainage. The area includes over 100 live oaks and a mix of pecans and other oaks to complement the fauna. This entire area is fenced off from any livestock and kept immaculate. There are about 330 acres of river bottom land that is a mix of pecan bottoms, hay fields, and thicker hackberry and cedar elm forest that provide excellent cover for wildlife. 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. WILDLIFE The ranch has a fantastic population of white-tailed deer and being on a river bottom, opportunities for some very nice deer for Colorado County. The thickets in the river bottom have good roads through them for accessing the multiple blinds and feeders. There is excellent waterfowl habitat on this property making for premier duck hunting. The 200+ acre lake holds large numbers of ducks all winter and has many nooks and crannies with shallow water and aquatic vegetation that are ideal spots for laying out decoys. There is also an eight-acre wetland unit overlooking the lake that can be manipulated to create ideal waterfowl habitat. The Colorado River offers winter duck hunting when the river is along the banks or out on sandbars. There are also several opportunities to create more wetland units along the lake that would have access to water to manipulate habitat to further expand hunting opportunities. There is good dove hunting along the hay fields next to the lake that could be enhanced with additional plantings. Fishing is excellent in the lake, which holds bass, catfish, crappie, and bream. AGRICULTURE Cattle are run in the river bottom and there are multiple hay fields throughout the property. There is an abundance of native pecan trees that are currently not being harvested but are commercially viable.

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.

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.
