In a beautiful and secluded part of the Texas Gulf Coast, between Victoria and Matagorda Bay, is the 1,092± acre J7 Ranch, a hunting and livestock ranch for sale with plenty of water and forage. This gorgeous ranch getaway is rich in Texas history, being owned by the same family, as part of the Traylor Ranch, since 1875.
J7 Ranch is situated between Port Lavaca Bay and Swan Lake and easy access to the ranch is from either paved FM 1593 to the West or State Highway 35 to the South. It is less than 30 minutes South of Highway 59, making it less than 1 hour from Victoria and about 2 hours from Houston. It is also very convenient to coastal and beach recreation in the area. The nearest boat ramps leading to Lavaca Bay, Vess Bay, and Matagorda Bay and then to the Gulf of Mexico are less than 10 miles from the ranch.
The ranch headquarters consists of two homes. The main home is a four bedroom, three and one-half bath home with an iconic rock chimney, a large screened porch, and an expansive brick patio. The ranch foreman’s home is a two bedroom and 1 bath home. Nearby are a variety of barns and storage buildings.
Approximately 50 acres of the ranch is currently in hay production, with the remaining acreage used for grazing. The lush cattle pastures are shaded by majestic Oak, Elm and Ash trees. Native grasses have been managed for optimum growth to provide for wildlife and livestock grazing. Heavy native brush areas provide excellent cover for wildlife and cattle.
Keller Creek Ranch has abundant water with several ponds and five water wells. Three wells are on electric pumps, one is a windmill, and a remaining well currently has no pump. Keller Creek runs along a portion of the property and feeds into a beautiful small lake at the ranch headquarters.
Native wildlife is abundant on the ranch and includes Whitetail deer, dove, quail, and turkey. And as is typical on this part of the Gulf Coast, the bird watching on this ranch is amazing. The ranch offers sanctuary to a multitude of annual and seasonal migrating birds.
