Spectacular Texas Ranch Hits the Market

By: PRLog

WEATHERFORD, Texas - June 24, 2024 - PRLog -- Strawn, Texas – Nestled in the picturesque Brad community of far western Palo Pinto County, a truly extraordinary ranch is now available for discerning buyers. Located at 1500 Upper Brad Road, this Large Ranch in Texas, an expansive property is a haven for cattle ranching, game hunting, and outdoor enthusiasts, offering a unique blend of natural beauty, impressive infrastructure, and modern amenities.

Spanning over 5,888 acres across Palo Pinto and Stephens counties, the ranch's terrain is a rich tapestry of Western landscapes. It features flat agricultural fields, gently rolling native grasslands, limestone outcroppings, and a stunning valley enriched with large pecan trees and the clear, running waters of Ioni Creek. Elevated plateaus offer expansive views, while limestone bluffs, rugged canyons, and densely vegetated high hills create a dramatic backdrop. The area is home to a variety of tree species, including elm, juniper, live oak, red oak, post oak, hackberry, and pecan, supported by a diverse understory that attracts abundant wildlife.

Adding to the ranch's rich history is a charming story about the local school in Brad, which was about a quarter mile south of US 180. Ranch kids would ride their horses to school, stopping at the halfway point at Sheep Dip Spring, located on the ranch. Ranchers had built a concrete water tank at the spring, dated 1934, which still exists today, though the spring now runs separately from the tank. The Southeast neighbor was the Robinson family, whose land is now an exotic game preserve. The picnic grounds of the Robinsons bordered the Ioni Creek. Notably, the Snowden and Belding families also had residences on the ranch, adding to its historical significance.

The ranch is well-equipped with facilities to support both cattle operations and recreational activities. The headquarters includes a fully operational cattle handling facility, a residential compound for staff, and multiple storage and workshop buildings. The owner's compound, known as the Hornet's Nest, features a main house, bunkhouse, and a boardroom/office building, all designed for comfort and functionality. Additional amenities include high fencing, cross fencing, cattle guards, RV hookups, and more.

Water is plentiful on the property, highlighted by the approximately three miles of Ioni Creek, which flows for seven to eight months each year. The creek's crystal-clear waters, expansive pools, and small to medium waterfalls create a serene and enchanting environment.

The owner will convey all owned minerals and royalty rights, with the property currently hosting approximately ten producing gas and oil locations.

The sale includes 350 head of cattle and bull... read full details on
