Water: This is truly a rare find with 7,000± feet of Nueces River frontage. The crystal clear Nueces River is one of the best kept secrets, being one of the prettiest waterways in the state of Texas. The River defines the eastern boundary for nearly 1.5± miles. The River offers year around recreation opportunities such as fishing, snorkeling, tubing, kayaking, swimming, exploring, etc. The River traverses from fast flowing rapids to deep blue holes. The clarity of the Nueces is truly amazing allowing one to see the bottom of the 12± foot deep holes. Multiple natural springs are in this stretch of the River allowing the River to be constant, surviving some of the severe droughts that we have experienced over the past 20 years. There are also impressive Indian caves within the rock cliff along the river. This water provides good bass fishing and catfishing and is a migratory attractant for ducks and wildlife. With abundant water comes an abundance of beautiful large trees and this place is no exception.
Vegetation: Upon entry, you are welcomed by a lush pecan bottom with hundreds of mature trees. This park-like setting is rare in itself. It is believed there are 1,800± Pecan trees on the property. Large Live Oak trees can also be found throughout in addition to Hackberry, Elm and Mesquite, all highlighting the 295± acres of this gorgeous, parklike setting. The remainder land is 410± acres in native brush. The southern portion of brush consists of lower, hilly brush. The northern area has better soils allowing for consistently good brush diversity. Brush species found on this ranch: Guajillo, black brush, guayacon, persimmon, prickley pear, white brush, etc.
