Goliad 3550 Ranch

3,549+/- Acres    ·    Goliad County, Goliad, TX    ·    $12,421,500
This historic ranch is being offered for sale for the first time in over 100 years. With over 2 miles of spring-fed Sarco Creek, the Goliad 3550 is a diverse mixture of classic coastal plains with native grasses, live oak and post oak trees on the northern 1,526 acres and large stands of live oaks and a post oak “forest” in the southern 2,023 acres. Sarco Creek is very well watered with perennial large pools of clear spring water. This is truly something special; a discerning buyer will certainly appreciate the opportunity to purchase a large ranch of this caliber, location and canvas ready for their masterpiece.

Location and Access: Located just 6 miles south of Goliad, TX off of HWY 183. The ranch has 3.19 miles of frontage along HWY 183. Three access gates are positioned at the north, middle and southern ends of the property. Approximately 160 miles to Houston, 100 miles to San Antonio and 135 miles to Austin. The Victoria Regional Airport runway is over 4,900 ft.

Rangeland and Habitat: The northern 1,526 acres consist of primarily open coastal plains with some scattered mesquite and huisache trees. In the southwest portion of this pasture are large live oak and post oak trees along with live oak mottes. The seasonal Buzzard Branch runs north-south in the western portion of the pasture for the entire length terminating in Sarco Creek located in the 2,023-acre pasture. Topography is gently sloping from the highest point of 1,65 ft on the northeast portion down to 135 ft along the cross fence separating the two large pastures.

The southern 2,023 acres is more heavily wooded with some areas of great native grass stands and open country. Hardwoods consist of live oak mottes, huge live oaks and a large area of dense post oaks in the southwestern portion. Typical South Texas brush varieties are also present along with mesquite and huisache trees. The focal point of this pasture is the 2.16 miles of Sarco Creek. The strength and beauty of this creek is something of an anomaly in this part of Texas.

Water: 2.16 miles of spring-fed Sarco Creek, 3.77 miles of the Buzzard Branch Creek, a dry weather creek feeding into Sarco Creek. Five stock tanks are scattered throughout the property, all with access to nearby water wells. One tank is fed by windmill.

Wildlife: White-tailed deer are known to be above average for the area, turkey are abundant, excellent quail habitat, dove and hogs.

Improvements: Ranch improvements include a large set of wooden cattle pens in the southeast portion of the ranch. The pens are near HWY 183 and easily accessed from the south entrance. There are miles of all-weather caliche roads throughout the interior of the ranch.

Fencing: Fencing along HWY 183 is new and very well built. The northern and western fencing is in great condition. The southern portion is older but in good condition. One cross fence separates the northern 1,526-acre Beef Pasture and 2,023-acre Elkins pasture. There is also a 227-acre trap adjacent to the working pens.  

Easements: There is one natural gas pipeline traversing the property east to west. No other easements are apparent.

Minerals: Surface sale only, no minerals are offered for sale. Historically there has been production on the ranch providing for good access through the heart of the property. Currently, the minerals are under lease with only a very marginal amount of production.

Showings: All showings must be scheduled at least 24-hours in advance. Seller reserves the right to pre-qualify any potential buyer prior to showing.
