Elevations ranging from 6,182 feet to 5,400 feet make this truly a mile high ranch on a south shoulder of the Davis Mountains. There are currently no improvements except for pasture roads and an old steel water storage tank. Dominated by high grassland with oaks cascading down north facing slopes the property is a huge mesa-like hill where you have a 360-degree view of Mt. Livermore, Chinati, Cathedral Mountain, Marfa, Valentine, Eagle Mountains, Blue Mountain, and literally over 100,000 acres of grasslands.
Owner will convey an easement for Buyer to drill a water well and run a pipeline to the property from his adjoining land. Electricity is nearby.
This Scenic Loop ranch is dominated by mile-high grasslands of Cane Bluestem, Blue Gramma, Green Sprangletop, and Sideoats Gramma with Emory Oaks, Gray Oaks and Juniper. A large mountain, bluffs, and hills create excellent topography and the views of the area mountains are nothing short of breathtaking. Excellent grasses and Chihuahuan Desert plants provide habitat for native wildlife animals and livestock. This is an excellent cross- section of the various habitat types found in the higher elevation of west Texas, from rock outcrops to montane woodlands, to oak savannahs, to rolling yucca grasslands.
This ranch has some of the best all-around hunting opportunities in the West Texas area as it combines the mountain habitats with the grassland habitats. Abundant mule deer, herds of pronghorn, whitetail deer, mountain lion, and occasional elk can all be found here. Smaller animal and bird species of the Davis Mountains and Marfa Grasslands include javelina, fox, ringtail cat, coyote, dove, Montezuma quail and many, many large coveys of blue or scaled quail. There are great hunting opportunities throughout the ranch but also excellent recreational wildlife viewing and photography for its non-game species.
The grassland and mountain setting of the Medley Hills Ranch and associated vegetation provide ideal habitat for many species of raptors, hummingbirds, and migrating songbirds. From falcons, eagles, hawks, and warblers the trees and grassland combination provide one of the most diverse areas in the Chihuahuan Desert and home for all kinds of breeding and migratory birds.
Seller will retain what minerals they own on the ranch which is in a family trust although there are several hundred acres of Mineral Classified lands.
