Simpsons River Ranch
RIVER, RIVER & MORE RIVER FRONTAGE ON THIS BEAUTIFUL RANCH! OFFERS ARE WELCOMED! This beautiful Colorado River Ranch has been operated by the Simpson family since 1990 and it is now time to pass it on to another family to operate and enjoy. The Colorado River borders the ranch on the north, the east and about one-half of the south side. Massive Live Oak and Pecan trees line the banks of the river all the way around and are a sight to behold. County Road 146 borders the SW corner of the ranch for only 67 feet, so too much road frontage is not an issue here. Upon entering the ranch, you immediately notice the beautiful Live Oak trees scattered around the headquarters area. This area contains the modest home with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and a large open area used for a family room, kitchen and dining. Household water is from a rainwater collection system. Beyond the house is a large older barn, pipe livestock pens and a fairly new equipment shed. From that area, there is a small hill that is littered with flint rocks and pieces. I can just imagine this area being like a supply room for the Native Americans to harvest flint for their tools and weapons. From there, the remaining three-fourths of the ranch is very fertile and deep soils that is currently used for grass production for hay and cattle grazing. The ranch is divided into several pastures for rotating cattle for grazing and reserving areas to produce hay for the winter months.
In the past, much of this area was a huge irrigated pecan orchard. There are still thousands of feet of concrete irrigation channels that were used for transporting water to the pecan trees. Most of the trees were lost over the years, but there are still a few dozen remaining. With the 474 acre feet of irrigation rights, another orchard or truck garden could be planted and maintained for additional income in the future.
Last but not least are the recreational opportunities on this ranch. The river offers some of the best fishing and kayaking that you can find, plus there are many areas for camping, swimming and wading. Abundant deer, turkeys and hogs provide a never-ending opportunity for hunting and filling your freezer!
Ranches of this type and quality rarely come available for sale, so if you have any interest in this awesome ranch, be sure to schedule your showing as quickly as possible.
