It doesn't take long after entering the Double D Ranch before you realize you've found something very special.
After passing through the ranch entrance, travel down a short lane between two well-manicured pastures, entering into a charming headquarters compound comprising two log cottages and a tidy +/- 1800sf metal building. All of this is complemented by a "DD Ranch" logoed cistern alongside a good old-fashioned Texas windmill, with American and Texas flags waving in the breeze and an old-timey wagon reminding you that you are in South Texas, after all, where the past richly colors the present.
A tour through the main house and guest house gives you a sense of place and inspires you to want to just stay right there; however, stepping out upon the front porches of either home puts you in an eyeball's reach of native game and exotics, roaming the pastures right in front of you. The owner says that when it comes to watching wildlife, the houses are the best blinds on the whole place - and he's right! That said, you'll want to board the Polaris, put corn in the feeder, and go for a spin around the high-fenced game sanctuary, where the white-tailed deer, turkey and exotices all live and play.
The high-fenced portion of the ranch, which has not been hunted in 15 years, is pure, oak-studded magic. A variety of lanes and and strategic clearings provide wonderful opportunities for hours of observing all sorts of game; the entire southern border of the property comprises the Aransas Creek, with live water bubbling up and pooling throughout its expanse from one end of the ranch to the other; the ranch boundaries include both sides of the creek.
Abundant recreational opportunities include bird-watching, nature and wildlife photography, and hunting for artifacts that await you near the creek. There's also a caliche pit on the northeast corner of the property that offers interesting possibilities.
Wildlife population approximates 50 native White-tailed deer and 50 exotics, including axis, fallow, black buck, scimitar oryx, elk, sika, and Pre David's deer. A specific count is available upon request.
Amenities include a 3BR/3-bath, two-story main house of log construction, 2BR/2-bath guest house, both houses with fireplaces and metal roofs. Metal building contains 1800sf per owner. Many furnishings may be included or negotiable.
Minerals that are owned are also negotiable.
As a life-long ranch owner myself, and a ranch broker, I've seen a lot of property, but the combination of caring ownership for the last 15 years, an expanse of lovely tree-lined water, no hunting pressure, the addition of exotic species, and some charming accommodations, make this one of the most special properties I've ever visited, and I'm proud to have this listing. I'm eager to show it - call me and let's set it up so I can share this magic with you!
