Selkirk River Frontage

This Selkirk Island Riverfront property represents the last bulk riverfront lot development opportunity next to the proven Selkirk Subdivision. The deed restricted Selkirk development has long been a popular location for sportsmen, known for its outstanding river fishing for speckled trout and redfish and excellent access to both West & East Matagorda Bays and the Gulf of Mexico.   Offering 950 +/- feet of river frontage on the Colorado River, paved road access, and available utilities, this parcel adjoins the Selkirk Ranch, over 600 acres of river bottom woodlands. (Call us for information on the Selkirk Ranch.)


Location:   Only 95 miles from Houston, the property is + 5 miles from the Intercoastal Canal by boat and + 10 miles from Matagorda Harbor by land.

Utilities:   Underground electrical in place.   Water available from the Selkirk Island subdivision.

Wildlife:   Fishing the river for salt water species is very good in this area (actually, exceptional, at certain times of the year), and convenient access to Matagorda Bay and the Gulf of Mexico allow for both bay and offshore fishing opportunities. Excellent waterfowl opportunities abound in the area.

History:   Selkirk Island was founded by William Selkirk, who was one of Stephen F. Austin’s original “old three hundred” settlers. He served as a surveyor and as part of the Colonial Militia and was granted Selkirk Island in 1824. The original grant consisted of several islands formed by the branches of the Colorado River. Dredging in modern times closed the channels and the ranch is no longer divided as an island. Ownership of the Island has been passed down from Selkirk’s descendents and has been owned by same family since its founding.
