5,932± ACRES FIGURE 3 RANCH, Schleicher County
Hwy. 90, near Menard, TX 76936
DESCRIPTION: The Figure 3 Ranch is a working cattle and hunting ranch located at the “Gateway to the Texas Hill County” in eastern Schleicher County. The ranch has been in the same family for over 100 years, and offers endless recreational possibilities, perfect for the mixed-use buyer looking for a property with both grazing and hunting potential.
The modest, yet functional improvements, offer excellent opportunity for a buyer to implement their own personal renovations while still preserving their historical nostalgia. The main headquarters compound features a 3 bedroom main house, designed by noted architect Ralph Cameron, whose plans are archived at the University of Texas. There is also a 2 bedroom guest house, recently remodeled bunkhouse, 3 bay carport, barn, and set of working cattle pens. The 4± mile all-weather road provides easy access to the headquarters which are set far enough off the highway to eliminate any noise or light pollution. The ranch is cross-fenced into 4 separate pastures, and the entire western boundary of the ranch has been recently high-fenced with the remainder being low-fenced. The owners have also recently constructed a recent 300± acre high-fenced exotics pasture to establish a trophy Axis herd.
WATER: The ranch has great water infrastructure with 6 water wells with electric submersible pumps and 2 windmills, assuring that livestock and game never have to stress for a drink. Shallow domestic water can be found at 200-250± FT, and the owners have also drilled a test irrigation well which yielded promising results for a future buyer interested in implementing pivot irrigation. The seasonal “North Valley Prong” of the San Saba River traverses the ranch for 1.4± miles and offers excellent potential for a large lake-site. Named “Twelvemile Waterhole” is located on the adjoining property to the east and backs up into the ranch during good rainfall years. There are numerous other seasonal drainages across the ranch providing abundant opportunity for further pond development.
TERRAIN: The gently rolling terrain is studded with countless Live Oak motts, and very light cedar cover enables native grasses to flourish on the ranch. There is 200± feet of elevation change across the property, which range from 2,170 - 2,370± feet above sea level. The fertile bottom-land soils along the creek present excellent areas for possible crop cultivation and/or wildlife food-plots.
WILDLIFE: This area of Schleicher County is known for its great native whitetail genetics along with an abundance of Rio Grande Turkey. The ranch also enjoys some free-ranging exotics including Axis Deer, Sika, and Blackbuck. The recent 300± acre exotic pasture is located near the headquarters and offers future potential income for a buyer looking to sell exotic hunts or to simply enjoy it for family and friends.
MINERALS: Surface only sale, no minerals will convey. There is currently no production on the ranch.
TAXES: Agricultural Tax Exemption in place
LOCATION: Figure 3 Ranch fronts on HWY 190, 18± miles east of Eldorado, 30± miles west of Menard, and 60± miles south of San Angelo. The property is also a convenient 2 hour striking distance from both Austin and San Antonio.
