Property Overview

Schoolhouse Mountain Ranch is a dramatic Brazos River Valley Ranch only 65 miles from the Metroplex. This ranch has almost 4 miles of river frontage on two sides of the Fortune Bend of the Brazos. The ranches namesake is the historic Schoolhouse Mountain where a relic of the frontier days educated several generations of Texas once sat. Schoolhouse Mountain towers over the Fortune Bend of the Brazos at 1300'. Miles of trails traverse the mountain and the riverfront. This 1229 acres has the beauty of a state park along the shores of some of the best river fishing in the state. Four modest stock ponds are scattered across the ranch. Three separate and deep fishing holes are accessible from the banks of this great ranch. The seller owns some adjudicated water rights and may consider selling some along with the surface.

The ranch is generally heavily covered.

The fencing ranges from good to fair. Sections of the fence had been recently replaced and are currently being leased for grazing.

The topography is generally sloped to steep although the mountain tops have large generally level areas. The overall elevation change is 450' and goes from the lowest point at the river level of approximately 870 feet to the highest point of 1320.

That average rainfall is around 34 cumulative inches a year.
