This is a truly exceptional high fenced ranch that is turn-key and ready to go. The interior road system is expansive, with around 2 miles of the road network being paved. It is not only an outstanding entertainment property, but also an income producing trophy whitetail breeding operation and superior hunting ranch.

This setting contains a spectacular Hacienda with expansive patios, outdoor kitchen, and two guest casitas, all overlooking one of the most scenic rivers in the state of Texas.
The single-story main home was built with entertaining in mind.

The commercial grade kitchen is highlighted by Mexican tile and utilizes stainless appliances as well as a Wolf brand stove. The spacious dining area extends just off the kitchen, generous enough to seat a large number of guests for a formal meal.
