$ 1,794,359

Double K Ranch is 265 acres of wooded wildlife habitat ready to be hunted and explored. Bull mesquites are prevalent throughout, with ancient oaks and towering elms surrounding the two ponds and seasonal creek ravines found across the ranch. Perimeter and ATV trails make it easy to navigate the thick brush and access the ravines where wildlife flourishes. This raw land is a perfect opportunity for the outdoor enthusiast with the desire to create their own year-round hunting preserve just a few miles from town. The owner is willing to subdivide into two ~133-acre tracts for $6,950/acre or ~$924k each.

TBD County Road 180, Smiley, TX 78159
5 miles to Smiley, 9 miles to Nixon, 22 miles to Gonzales, 63 miles to downtown San Antonio, 84 miles to downtown Austin, 159 miles to downtown Houston

265.831 acres of ag-exempt land mostly covered with bull mesquites, prickly pear cactus, and thick native grasses. Along the ravines are large live oaks, massive elms, and many mud holes for the wildlife to cool in the heat of the day. Additionally, two ponds provide cool water when needed. This rugged ranch with its wild habitat has no doubt been home for various varmints for years. Hunters can expect to see whitetail deer, bobcats, coyotes, feral hogs, and mourning dove throughout the year.

Electricity runs along CR 180 which can be used to power your campsite or a water well if desired. The perimeter is low fenced, and cattle pens are located in the middle of the property. There are many 12 ft. wide cut roads along most of the perimeter fence and a few on the interior providing ATV access to the seasonal drainages for hunting purposes. Additionally, a 50 ft. wide pipeline easement across the property provides great travel access.

No mineral rights are included.

The property currently has an agricultural tax valuation but could easily convert to a wildlife management valuation to further benefit the hunting land. Yearly taxes are approximately $500.

Nixon is a small city of 2,385 people that sits in the counties of Wilson and Gonzales, and can be found at the intersection of Highway 87, Highway 80 and Farm Road 1117.
