The River Ranch
The River Ranch is located approximately 41 miles north of San Angelo. Access is 5.4 miles east of Robert Lee, Texas to a county road (7 Mile Hill Road) then south 3.9 miles to the ranch entrance.
The ranch with around a seventy-foot elevation change has approximately 2 ¼ miles of Colorado River as it south and east boundary. It ranges from fertile bottomland to more elevated sandy loam land with rock outcrops. There are numerous oak trees, some very large, mesquite and cedar. Conservation work, some recent, has opened nice areas and has a good growth of native and improved grasses. The oaks, unique for the area, creates outstanding vistas.
Water for the ranch is provided by one operable electric pumped water well, one windmill well, and at least one cased well. This well is piped to the lodge and provides outside water and water to the lodge if needed. The lodge main water is hauled in, from a source of good fresh water this has its own storage and pumping system. There is also a very nice and scenic large pond, stocked with fish plus the approximately 2 ¼ miles of Colorado River with some nice long areas of water. Many large to exceptionally large catfish have been caught in these waters.
There is a genuinely nice lodge of southwest design with 1,830sqft. including porches of design along with a 575sqft. covered patio/carport area. The house and patio area are stucco with a tile roof. There is a nice sized living/dining area with a fireplace, kitchen area, 2 bedrooms, 1 bath. Complementing the home are two nice storage areas large enough for your utility vehicles, shop, and water system. There is an all-steel fabricated equipment shed, around 1,200sqft. and an older metal clad barn with shed. There is also a set of steel livestock pens. One very nice large, elevated hunting blind will stay with the ranch.
The ranch supports an extremely healthy number of whitetail deer, rio grande turkey, wild hogs, dove and quail. Hunt in the morning and fish in the afternoon.
