Fenced and cross fenced with excellent livestock working pens. CA$INO ranch is the perfect combination of ranching and hunting opportunities.

LAND: This almost perfectly square ranch is ~ 1 mile by 1 mile. Rolling small hills with oak trees and cedar elm trees scattered throughout. The perfect balance of thicker brush and open space allows for wildlife cover and strong native grasses to thrive. The thicker areas are comprised of ash juniper trees, agarita bush and mesquite. Most of the ranch is rolling to level topography with parts of the ranch having larger rock outcroppings. 100% of the land is accessible and there are a few wet weather creeks traversing the property that will hold water during wet periods. No oil and gas activity on this pristine 640 acres makes it the ideal candidate for a hunting ranch, livestock ranch, or permanent residence. Southwest Schleicher county is known for exceptional habitat for both wildlife and livestock, and has provided for ranchers in this area for years.
WILDLIFE: Schleicher County continues to see more free range exotic animals roam into the area. This ranch is home to axis, wild boar and black buck antelope exotic species. In addition many native species such as white tailed deer, rio grande turkey, bobwhite quail, mourning dove, white wing dove, and other small mammals call this ranch home. The strong stand of native vegetation provide great browse for these animals. Large neighbors, low hunting pressure and good quality low fenced perimeter allow free range as well.
WATER: The key to any ranch is water. CA$INO ranch is well watered with 3 recently serviced water-wells scattered throughout the ranch. This area of Texas is knows for exceptional groundwater. Lying within the Trinity Aquifer the three water wells provide water to both houses, the livestock pens, water troughs for livestock and wildlife, as well as a pond located by one of the houses. Data in the area shows the depths of these wells to be in between 250-350' deep and yielding strong flow. Plenty of opportunity for the new owner to expand on the great water infrastructure. One water well pumps into a pila allowing for large scale water storage.
IMPROVEMENTS: A main house and a cabin make up the sleeping quarters on the ranch. The main house is a ranch style home on slab foundation comprised of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Approximately 2,600 square feet it has multiple living areas, kitchen dining, full kitchen, separate washer/dryer room, and an office. Recently updated with new "life proof" floors this house will comfortably sleep 10 or more adults and has an indoor fireplace for the colder months. The main house is fully high fenced has it's own dedicated water well, carport, and garage outbuildings. The cabin (~800 square feet) overlooking the pond is one large room with kitchen and bathroom. Currently 4 bunk beds make up the sleeping availability but much more could be added. Slate flooring, wood paneling, updated kitchen and bath highlight the great features of this cabin. This ranch has two metal barns with covered parking areas and garage areas with roll up metal doors. All the improvements have electric running to them and a SW Electric Co-op line runs diagonally through the middle of the ranch.
