River Frontage Ranch
Situated on the banks of the Pecos River, this expansive 600-acre ranch boasts a variety of features. At its heart lies a 15-year-old double-wide mobile home (2300 Sq Ft 3,2) , accompanied by a newer 3200-square-foot shop/barn that holds potential for a future barndominium. Nestled within the Bear Canyon subdivision, the property is conveniently positioned a mere 5-minute drive from the charming town of Iraan in Crockett County. This tract, along with a neighboring 235-acre parcel, constitutes the remaining portion of what was once a sprawling 6640-acre ranch with 5.5 miles of river frontage.
Formerly encompassing 4600 acres bordering the river and an additional 2000 acres atop the Mesas, this ranch has now been subdivided into distinct tracts. Among these tracts, the one in question is the second smallest, with the smallest being a 100-acre parcel. The adjacent land buyers secured tracts ranging from 200 acres to 2900 acres, indicating the scale of the property divisions. Access to the property is facilitated by a 1.5-mile easement road that was once maintained by the county as River Rd. The well-maintained caliche-based drive ensures easy entry. Internally, the road system is also in excellent condition.
The nearby town of Iraan offers an array of amenities such as an airport, hospital, post office, grocery, and hardware stores, all within a brief 5-minute drive from the ranch’s entrance. The terrain of the ranch is characterized by expansive mesas, picturesque canyons, striking limestone bluffs, and the tranquil Pecos River running along its western edge for approximately one mile. Elevations within the property fluctuate between 2150 and 2500 feet, providing breathtaking panoramic vistas. A road at approximately 2400 feet along the bluffs offers a sweeping view of the entire ranch, encompassing the river and the town of Iraan.
This property taps into the Edwards-Trinity Aquifer, possessing its own water well and a dirt tank. The rangeland is in excellent condition, adorned with ample native grasses and shrubs. Encircled by expansive ranches spanning from 4,000 to 32,000 acres, the property enjoys a sense of seclusion. Notably, the ranch has seen hunting activity only once in the past 8 years, establishing it as a prime hunting sanctuary. Its abundant cover and diverse habitat provide a haven for various wildlife species that call Bear Canyon home. The land hosts Whitetail and Mule deer, Aoudad, Axis deer, Corsica and Spanish sheep, in addition to Rio Grande turkey, bobwhite quail, and doves. Predatory species like mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes, and foxes are also known to inhabit the region.
As the last remaining tract with significant elevation changes along the river, this property is a rare find that is sure to be snapped up quickly.
