The ranch lies one mile north of TX 29, touching a good, all-weather caliche road, in NW Mason County, about 9 miles from Mason (pop. 2100, supplies, restaurants, shops, med. clinic, DQ, pharmacy), a thriving small community with a progressive school system that has brought home 2 Lone Star Cups since 2017.
Brady is 20 miles north, Fredericksburg (major retail/food/arts center) is 50 miles south. Austin, San Antonio and San Angelo are each about 2 hours away from the ranch, DFW is about 3. The locale consists of working/recreational ranches with focus on livestock production, deer hunting and water recreation.
The area is known for active seasonal springs, and much evidence of hydro activity is noted on site, even during the current severe drought. Several water wells are on site, and 2 are active, and an old, large stock tank could possibly be lined.
This ranch possesses some of the most interesting variety seen in this area, with views to downtown Mason, spring fed limestone canyons, virgin hardwoods galore, fascinating topography and exquisite seclusion. The land is mostly in a primitive state, with drivable trails to most areas, and the oak savannah/cedar/mesquite scenery is unparalleled to the Mason outdoorsman. Excellent populations of deer, hog, turkey and varmints thrive in this paradise, with countless nooks and crannies to disappear into. Evidence of Native American presence is strong, with chert noted in abundance. The western portion features deep, fine red sand and massive post oaks!
Two active water wells, and fencing with minor cross fencing, are the only material assets on site. A hunting camp in the SE corner will be disbanded, and there is presently no co-op electricity on site, though available.
This place is the “crème dela crème” for the true Mason connoisseur, checking all the boxes, including monster vistas, virgin hardwoods, mysterious canyons, interesting topography and abundant wildlife. What a blank canvas only 10 minutes from town! Develop the water and infrastructure, then enjoy paradise forever!
