Favoretta West Ranch

Favoretta West Ranch is a 1052 acre showplace located in the sought after Goldthwaite area at the northern edge of the Texas Hill Country.  The high wooded hills, large ponds and abundant deer population make Favoretta West an ideal Hill Country recreational or grazing ranch.  The superb 7-strand barded wire fencing, water wells, newly built barns and quality pastures are ideal for folks who plan to run up to 100 cows.  A new horse barn and facilities ensure equine enthusiasts have all they need. The main house, a recently constructed 4,000 sq ft. custom home with amazing views, as well as a second 2,500 sq. ft. home ensure plenty of living space for you and your guests.


The terrain at Favorettta is dominated to two high pointsone on the east, one on the west. The elevation ranges from 1520 along the creek bed in the center of the ranch to 1700 on the eastern and western hills. The lower pastures have an excellent stand of native grass, are very smooth and almost rock-free. Dahl Old World Bluestem thrives in the lower areas of the ranch and is tremendously rich and productive. The main lake is adjacent to mature pecan trees and the hills are covered with various oaks. Very few cedars and no mesquite trees are on the ranch. Cedar Eaters has done a great job reducing the cedar numbers on the ranch as well as cleaning up down trees. The ranch is loaded with whitetails. The ranch is not leased for grazing or hunting. It is likely you will see a dozen or more deer in a short visit to Favoretta. There are no wind turbines on the ranch.

***This ranch is also available in 420 and 632 acre tracts.***


A 5 acre lake in the center of the property with a floating dock is full of fish.  Two other large ponds and 8 small ponds provide ample water for livestock and wildlife.  Even in the 2011 drought the lake and most ponds did not go dry on the ranch. A spring on the northwestern side of the ranch feeds into a pond.

The ranch is serviced by three deep wells and three shallow wells with working windmills.
