16757 Ellis Road
Menard, TX 76859
Location: The ranch is well located approximately 12 miles southwest of Menard, Texas and 20 miles northwest of Junction, Texas in Menard County. Ellis Road is a well-maintained county road providing a very private entry into the Rivers Ranch.
General: The sellers have owned the ranch since 1982. This portion of the ranch (which is comprised of 1567 acres with a new survey now complete) is being offered by The RIVERS FAMILY PARTNERSHIP. The Headquarters are about a mile from the gate and contain a very comfortable Main House of approximately 1600 square feet and the Rock House for guests of approximately 900 square feet. Several old barns and small buildings with an excellent set of working pens lie within the compound. A strong water well serves the headquarters with a nice pila that would make a great cowboy swimming pool and a separate concrete storage tank.
Hunters Cabin: Located about mile from the Headquarters lies the Hunters Cabin of approximately 1800 square feet. It is designed to accommodate 16 to 18 overnight guests. With a fenced compound and separate water well, it is far enough away from the Headquarters to provide privacy to both areas. In addition, there is a small 2-bedroom cabin in the adjacent Brown Pasture that overlooks a seasonal dove tank watered by a windmill.
Water Wells: The. Ranch is well watered with 4 total water wells, one at each house and one distributing water to concrete troughs throughout the ranch. All of the wells have held up well even during tough drought conditions.
Minerals: The sellers believe they own 1/2 of the minerals on the 1145 acres and all of the minerals on the remaining acreage. They will convey 25% of all minerals owned at closing.
Wildlife and Habitat: The ranch has been well-managed for wildlife and provides excellent hunting for whitetail, turkey and hogs. The dove and quail hunting can be very good on wet years. The habitat for wildlife is ideal with cover provided by live oak, spanish oak, shinnery oak, persimmon, agarita, mesquite and hackberry. The cedar has been well-maintained through the years and is left in certain spots for cover. Prickly pear, blue stem, indian grass, switchgrass and grama grass complete the landscape.
