El Ranchito
324 +/- Acres
Wilbarger County, TX

This ranch is one of kind, set up with all the amenities for hunting, cattle ranching, and living well! With the added bonus of being located on the Red River, this property is hard to beat!

A gated entrance off of Hwy 283 takes you into the property, where a gravel road winds through tall hackberry trees and elms to a beautiful 3-4BD/3BTH house perched on top of a large bluff. The house has CH/A, 2400 sq ft of living space, and comes completely furnished. Everything needed is here – beds, couches, a beautiful dining room table & chairs, kitchen appliances, a wet bar! There is a master suite with its own private bathroom, jacuzzi tub, and walk-in closet. The whole house is beautifully decorated; from its floors to its ceiling, everything is first class!

This property was set up to entertain. The back door of the house leads to a 1300 sq ft wooden deck. Overlooking the Red River valley, the view from this deck is outstanding! Several outdoor table and chair sets provide ample seating for guests. A pathway from the deck leads around the corner of the house to a covered, stone outdoor fireplace and cooking area. This is an excellent place to relax at the end of the day or cook venison steaks on the grill!

The house also has a large, two-car metal carport with an attached storage building. This storage building provides access to the storm cellar, as well as additional storage space. The yard has an irrigation system installed too, ensuring the grass will be green throughout most of the year.

From the house, the road continues down a hill to a picnic area located under a large elm tree. Here there is a picnic table, fire pit, water well, tree swing, and outdoor “john”. The present owners have spent many wonderful days at this picnic site, enjoying friends and the shade of the elm tree.

The hunting and wildlife on El Ranchito is top notch as well. The ranch is home to large whitetail bucks, as well as rio grande turkey, bobwhite quail, dove, wild hog, bobcat, and coyote. The river is great for channel cat fishing too, and acts as a flyway for ducks.

The terrain has a lot of elevation change and consists of mainly rolling hills and pastures. The ranch sits in northern Wilbarger County, where the Red River cuts south after the Salt Fork pours into it. This wide bend in the river creates approximately one mile of frontage for the ranch. El Ranchito is surrounded by large ranches – 5,000 acres on the west, 3,000 acres on the north & east, and 1,500 on the south.

The property has many different types of trees as well; mature hackberry, chinaberry, elm, and mesquite abound, along with a few tall cedars and osage trees. Plum thicket groves are everywhere, ideal for the turkey and quail populations. Other native brush includes bluestem, sage, and ragweed. There are feeders scattered throughout to supplement the wildlife further.

This ranch is currently supporting a small cow/calf operation, but would be great for horseback riding too. The whole property has excellent perimeter and cross fences. There is a nice set of pipe-fence corrals, with chutes and a water well. There is small metal shed there to keep your hay dry too.

Across from the corrals is a 30′ x 50′ metal barn that sits on a concrete slab. This barn has utilities ran to it and two roll-up doors, one on each end, so equipment is easy to move in and out. As a bonus, the barn comes furnished with a John Deere 5320 tractor with a front-end loader & shredder, two four-wheelers (Honda Rancher ES, Kawasaki Bayou 220), and a Polaris ATV Ranger 4×4.

El Ranchito would be ideal as a corporate retreat, family getaway/vacation property, or as a homestead. A turnkey operation like this is hard to find! It would take years to take a raw piece of ground and develop it into anything comparable.

Asking Price: $995,000
