Brookesmith – Brown County, Texas
Located approximately 18 miles southwest of Brownwood near the small community of Brookesmith, three hours from DFW, 90 minutes from Austin, and three hours from San Antonio. This new listing gives a buyer the opportunity to acquire a fantastic Hunting/Cattle Ranch in a great location. Carr Ranch has been in the same family since the late 1800’s and offers paved frontage on FM 586, rural water from Brookesmith Special Utility District, electricity and phone.
The Ranch headquarters include a small fenced 2 bedroom home that is livable, an older guest house that needs refurbished, a 30’x 50′ metal equipment shop with roll doors, cattle pens, goat shed, three older grain silos of which two are still usable and 5 RV sites with electric and water.
The terrain of the Ranch offers a great combination of 671+- acres of low hills with medium to heavy brush and 162+-acres of fertile deep soiled farm land. A wide flat ridgeline runs from north to south through the ranch offering incredible home sites and amazing 360% views of the surrounding area. The six separate cultivated fields are located throughout the ranch and are planted with seasonal crops to supply hay production or grazing for cattle and wildlife. Trees include Live Oak, Shin Oak, Cedar Elm, Persimmon and Mesquite. A thorough road system provides easy access to nearly all areas of the property and is totally 2 wheel drive accessible. Several ponds are located around the Ranch that provide water for the wildlife and livestock.
The hunting on the ranch is exceptional with large numbers of Whitetail, Turkey, Hogs, Quail, Dove and various varmints. The hunting is leased to a long term group of hunters that take exceptional care of the property and the grass cattle grazing is leased to a local rancher. Both of these leases could remain in place and would supply a good income stream and help with the continued agricultural exemption. The ranch will typically will support over 40 grown cattle. Annually the fields are planted in wheat and/or oats for grazing or harvesting and support exceptional bird hunting. The owner has multiple feed stations throughout the ranch and multiple ponds provide water for wildlife and livestock. There is a large portion of the ranch game fenced. Completion of the remaining game fenced would allow a buyer to create his own Exotic and Whitetail hunting operation.
The ranch is currently listed well below than the 2023 appraised value according to the Brown County apprasisal district. The Ranch has mineral rights intact and the sellers are willing to convey the minerals with an acceptable negotiated sales price. Call Gary Peterson 210-365-7565 or Morris Killough 210-415-9850
