Two hours west of Fort Worth is an extraordinary 4,000-acre ranch overlooking the Brazos River that has great hunting and fishing and produces income.
Chrystal Falls Ranch is divided into two contiguous sections. The large northern portion with 3,500 acres is high fenced for a diverse variety of native and managed wildlife.
The smaller southern part of the ranch has 500 acres with more than a mile of frontage on the Clear Fork of the Brazos. On this section find a custom-designed, 10-bedroom, two-story lodge, plus a large ranch manager’s home near the livestock facilities and barn.
The range is leased for cattle grazing, which generates an income of $30,000 a year.
With a mile of frontage along the Clear Fork, the ranch has extensive water. Scattered throughout the property are more than 15 ponds with the largest one being roughly 2.5 acres. These ponds do not go dry. The larger ponds and river provide great fishing opportunities.
Ideal for hunting, the ranch has a favorable buck to doe ratio and a large amount of trophy whitetails. It is not unusual to see more than 30 deer while on a hunt. Along with the native deer, hogs, turkey, dove and ducks, the ranch is also stocked with axis deer and blackbuck antelope.
A wildlife processing barn is equipped with a walk-in cooler. All stands, deer feeders and hunting vehicles are included. A shooting range to 1,000 yards has a metal target for practice and entertainment.
The lodge has amazing views of the river and the Texas countryside. There are two master suites, a game room and large great room with an open kitchen, dining and living areas. Glass walls overlook a covered patio with a built-in grill. All furniture, fixtures and home furnishings are included.
