Description

Please visit the Moon River Ranch listing website for an in-depth look at this ranch property and to view the Ranch listing video/virtual tour. See links below this write up.

This one-of-a-kind ranch boasts +/- 547 secluded acres, approximately 4 miles of the Brazos River frontage, a +/- 20,000 square foot Main Lodge, Party Barn and numerous other outbuildings and residences. Moon River Ranch is both rustic and refined, grand in nature and intimate in overall design. With all of the amenities and more one would expect from a fine Texas Ranch, Moon River is being sold turn key.

The ranch is located only +/- 20 miles southeast from the vibrant, growing and robust city of Waco, in the heart of Central Texas, less than 30 miles from the Waco Regional Airport. With easy access to Highway 6 and Interstate 35, only 1.5 hours from both Austin and Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and less than 3 hours from both San Antonio and Houston the ranch affords convenient access to many parts of the state.

This area of Central Texas, and more specifically, Falls County, is known in the agricultural world for its rich, fertile land and lush bottom country. In addition to the highly productive soil, this portion of the county has some incredible views of rolling hillsides and gorgeous pastureland. Moon River Ranch boasts the possibilities to reap multiple agriculture income streams including hay production, livestock grazing and Pecan orchards.

The property is currently being used to host executive retreats, corporate events, weddings, private parties and family reunions but can easily be converted to a private retreat. Enjoy peaceful horseback rides through the coastal and Pecan laden pastures; shoot skeet from the deck of the boathouse, or float in a canoe down +/- 4 miles of frontage on the Brazos River. Kick back and relax on the riverside white sand beach or take a dip in the resort style pool surrounded by Palm trees and cascading water features. The property itself is truly like nothing you have ever seen before.

The headquarters of the ranch includes an impressive custom-built three story main lodge overlooking the resort style pool with a great room designed from inspiration from the Ritz Carlton in Beaver Creek and furnishings from Neiman Marcus and Horchow. Each of its guest rooms boast its own unique theme. With numerous other outbuildings and residences, Moon River can easily accommodate an overnight group up to 100 people and can host many more for a single day. Meticulously designed to host large parties with intimate gathering spaces, Moon River Ranch has something for everyone to enjoy.

Everything about Moon River Ranch suggests a warm personal touch to a fine Texas ranch. If you can envision yourself owning the most unique ranches along the grandest river in Texas, we invite you to experience Moon River Ranch.
