The Lee Ranch in Medina County, Texas, is situated in the much sought after transition country just north of Hondo where South Texas meets the Hill Country. The ranch is a ready to go hunting ranch with both high fenced and low fenced pastures, exotics, improved deer genetics, native wildlife, water distribution, countless Oak trees, Mustang Creek, fantastic improvements, end of road privacy, conservation oriented neighbors and wonderful views.
Location: The ranch is located at the end of Medina County Road 341, about 9 miles north of Hondo, TX, known across Texas as the place to come the opening of dove season.
Layout, Topography & Terrain: This ranch contains extraordinary numbers of Live Oaks across its rolling terrain. Mustang Creek traverses the northeastern portions of the ranch, providing even more exceptional wildlife habitat and diversity. The varied terrain coupled with the Live Oaks, other oaks, Elms, limited Juniper, native grasses, succulents and other flora typical of both South Texas and the Hill Country make this ranch a productive home to a variety of wildlife. There is also an approximately 72 acre field that can be planted in wildlife attracting crops in the southeast portion of property.
Wildlife and Hunting: Wildlife species that can be found on this ranch include Exotic wildlife (Axis, Fallow, Blackbuck, Aoudad, Sika, Mouflan, Catalina, etc.), white-tailed deer, quail, turkey, dove, feral hogs, varmints and songbirds. The ranch is currently managed predominantly as a bow-hunting destination. Included in the sale are the 5 protein feeders, 3 corn feeders, 1 box blind and 9 ladder stands located throughout the ranch.
Improvements: The western approximately 592 acres of the ranch are high fenced, with the eastern portion being low fenced. All primary gates entering ranch and HQ compound have electronic openers. The headquarters compound is perfectly organized for entertaining guests and taking care of the ranch. It is separately high fenced from other portions of the ranch. The Main House is the updated original farmhouse (~1200 SF). It has tall ceilings and features 2/1/2 bedrooms and 1-1/2 baths. Adjacent to the Main House are a patio, 3 bay garage, laundry/bunk cabin and dog kennels. Nearby is an approximately 2000 SF custom guesthouse with 2BR and 2BA, full kitchen, living and dining areas plus a porch and fire-pit. There is a large, concrete floored metal barn that serves multiple purposes: provides a game cleaning area, houses the walk in cooler, provides for vehicle storage and a serves as a shop. It also has a bathroom. There are also two pole barns and several smaller storage structures in the headquarters area.
Water: There are 3 existing Edwards domestic/livestock water wells that provide water service to the headquarters compound, water troughs distributed throughout ranch and one tank. There are several stock tanks located throughout the ranch and coupled with the water troughs, water is well distributed across ranch for both livestock and wildlife use. Mustang Creek, in the northeast part of the ranch, and another tributary, in the southern portion, are both wet weather drainages that hold water following rains; not to mention their riparian habitats.
Easements: Approximately 860 acres of the ranch are subject to a Grasslands Reserve Program (GRP) Conservation Easement generally allowing for typical agricultural uses, including hunting, but restricting the ranch from development. Of note, the neighboring ranches to the west, NW and SW are also subject to conservation easements further protecting the open space vistas on that side of the ranch. Further details regarding the GRP easement are available to interested buyers. The remainder of the ranch, including the headquarters and tillable field, are not subject to the GRP easement. Two neighbors access their ranches via an easement road along the eastern and a portion of the northern boundary of the ranch. The location of said easement road is such that it does not negatively impact ranch operations.
