Property Overview

The Fortune Bend Ranch is a dramatic 1074 acre Brazos River Valley Ranch only 65 miles from the Metroplex. This ranch has over 3.5 miles of incredible river frontage at the tip of the Fortune Bend of the Brazos. The ranches namesake is the historic Fortune Bend of the Brazos just 7 miles from the Hwy 16 crossing below the dam at Possum Kingdom. A very nice 3 bedroom 3 bath riverside lodge is privately tucked away and is an idyllic escape. A nearby barn has stalls to keep your favorite horses handy. Ioni Creek flows into the Brazos near the end of the river frontage and a large and deep hole has been created over the past millennia by the inflow of sand from the Ioni. This 1056 acres has the beauty of a state park along the shores of some of the best river fishing in the state. Three modest stock ponds are scattered across the ranch. Along with any seller owned minerals, the seller will also convey 100 acre-feet of agricultural water rights and 25 acre-feet of impoundment rights.
