Posted on: September 8th, 2018 by Grothaus Sheldon

The 821 acres of Bluff Creek Ranch encompasses some of the most dramatic and beautiful topography of the region, with high bluffs overlooking the Colorado River and scenic tree-lined ravines cut by Bluff Creek. This ranch for sale in McCulloch County, Texas, is just 15 miles north of Brady, an hour and half north of Fredericksburg and under two and a half hours west of Waco. With almost a mile of Colorado River frontage, over two miles of both sides of Bluff Creek, and elevations changes of over 100 feet, this truly unique piece of the Texas Hill Country offers magnificent improvement options.

The north edge of the property swiftly rises 80 feet up from the bank of the Colorado River, with a nearby peak sitting 100 feet above the river and offering dramatic panoramic views of the entire region. The excellent topography of the ranch is further enhanced by the two and one half miles that Bluff Creek carves across the property, including where the creek empties into the Colorado. The sandy and clay loams that make up the banks of Bluff Creek, that are 30 feet high in places, support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers and grasses.

Bluff Creek Ranch has two and a half miles of frontage on paved FM 765 with a gated entrance leading to miles of good all-weather roads to all areas of the ranch. The ranch is low-fenced with one large pasture. The rest of the ranch is covered in an abundant variety of grasses, brush and trees offering a beautiful diversity of ecological zones across the property. The property has deeded pump rights out of the Colorado River for livestock, wildlife, and household purposes. There are also two stock tanks on the ranch. There is a small cabin with a kitchen and loft on a bluff overlooking the river. A carport, firepit, and equipment shed are located near the main entrance, next to an old 2,250 foot landing strip. The varied topography and nutrient sources of the ranch support an abundance of Whitetail, Aoudad, dove, quail, and turkey. The area is known for great Whitetail hunting and over the top turkey hunting.

The awe-inspiring topography rising up from the Colorado River make Bluff Creek Ranch the ultimate canvas for your perfect Hill Country creation! There is room here for multiple homesites with distinct dramatic views down to the river and across the countryside. Improvements to the hunting infrastructure and the existing runway location would create a very desirable commercial hunting operation and a hunters paradise.

Bend, TX – Colorado River Ranch

Posted on: September 1st, 2018 by Carpenter David

Colorado Riverfront ranch with stunning views!

River: This ranch boasts 1600' of shaded Colorado River frontage. The majority of the water is deep in this area and promotes the use of a john-boat to fish for catfish and bass.

Land: Balance and diversity. From the banks of the water, moving inland, you will find massive pecan trees thriving in sandy soil. The native grasses are lush and provide ample grazing for sheep or a few head of cattle or horses. Pasture and oaks give way to a 200' elevation gain. The hilltop is shaped like a horseshoe circling a tank down below. Atop the hill are 20 mile views in nearly every direction. Areas have been cleared of cedar for future build sites. Choose one and let the native grasses claim the rest!
