The London Oaks Ranch is located in a highly desired region of Southeast Menard County, near the confluence of Menard, Mason, and Kimble counties. The ranch is a short drive to Menard, Mason, or Junction for all of your basic needs and only 2 +/- hours from Austin and San Antonio, and 3.5+/- hours to DFW. The ranch is accessed off of paved FM 1773 and has a private, deeded entrance road that runs around .75 mile before the ranch main entrance, offering excellent accessibility with fantastic privacy. The town of London, the namesake for the ranch-complete with dance hall and cafe, is just 10 miles drive to the South.
The ranch has been actively managed for a number of years and possesses some of the best low fenced hunting opportunities in the region for both quality and number of whitetail. The management efforts through selective harvests have increased the age structure and supplemental protein has paid off with more antler mass and a healthier herd. An excellent balance of habitat, cover, and water, mixed with low surrounding hunting pressure, has created an idyllic scenario for a hill country hunting ranch. The turkeys are plentiful on the ranch as well, with the large oaks making excellent roosts and the habitat having everything they need to call the ranch home. The ranch is setup with negotiable blinds and feeders, as well as established food plot areas and water strategically placed throughout creating a ranch setup that truly is ready to hunt.
The ranch is well watered for the region with submersible pump wells and concrete storage cisterns piped to concrete water troughs located throughout the ranch providing water for the wildlife and any cattle you wish to run. There is a wide seasonal creek that meanders nearly the full length of the property that will hold water in different spots during wet seasons, as well as one good pond located near the headquarters that has held water year-round. An additional water guzzler has been added to the Northwest side to have total coverage of water on the ranch for the wildlife.
The ranch has a very pleasing topography that has a gentle roll to it, lined with numerous draws and valleys, making the ranch feel even larger than it is. The biggest valley and seasonal creek runs from the northeast corner to the southwest corner of the property and highlights the ranch with scenic views and sizable oaks. There is a great diversity of wildlife habitat that is above average for the region, with a couple fields that have even had successful food plots in years past. The west side of the ranch has the highest elevation points that overlooks the valley below, creating some really picturesque, long range views of the hill country. There is cross-fencing for two 70+/- acre traps off the cattle pens, but the rest of the ranch is interior fence free and mainly used exclusively for hunting purposes.
The ranch is complemented with a 3 bedroom, 2 bath barndominium that is absolutely perfect for a family hunting cabin and is in excellent condition. The layout is perfect for entertaining with a large open living room and kitchen with high ceilings and has the bedrooms and bathrooms accessed off the main living area. The bardominium has stained concrete floors, pine walls, and nearly all furnishings are negotiable as part of the deal.
