Moon River Ranch

$5,600,000
Chilton, Texas
Moon River Ranch lies just 16 miles south of Waco and its vibrant, growing, and robust economy, along the banks of the grandest river in Texas. The rolling hills, fertile farmlands, and tree-shaded valleys of the middle Brazos River basin fill every visitor with a deep reverence for the landscape. Moon River Ranch offers the entrepreneur the setting and improvements to capture a profit from those public events that draw people to such a setting. Weddings, family reunions, corporate events, and team development are all activities that deserve to be located at a place that inspires. Moon River is both grand and quaint, rustic and refined, and is sure to leave a lasting impression. The property is currently being used to host executive retreats, corporate events, weddings, private parties, and family reunions. The venue can accommodate an overnight group of approximately 90 people and can host many more for a single day, depending upon the demands of a specific event. Guests can enjoy peaceful horseback rides through the pastures, shoot skeet, or float in a canoe down miles of frontage on the Brazos River. As a ranch, the nearly 500 acres of fertile pastures and pecan-laden groves along the 4.5 miles of Brazos River frontage offer the most desirable traits of any Central Texas ranch.

Services are customized to suit the owner’s needs. They often begin with the recruiting and hiring of a suitable ranch manager or caretaker and are followed by the development of a management or operating plan along with appropriate budgets. Ongoing services include bill paying, ranch oversight, and consulting services as needed. Even the most sophisticated and experienced ranch owners appreciate the value of a management firm representing them and providing advice on local area practices and costs.

RESOURCE ENHANCEMENT SERVICES – Increasingly the value of a ranch is measured by the quality of each and every one of its resources. Coincidentally, the enhancement of a ranch’s resources also increases the pleasure that one derives from the ownership of a ranch. Our management services have included the assessment of everything from wildlife habitat to bird habitat to water resources and fisheries and the subsequent oversight of the process involved with the enhancement of these resources.Wes Oja, Jerome Chvilicek or Dan Bergstrom at (406) 656-7500 or Justin Bryan in our Abilene office at (325) 260-5883 are available to describe and discuss these services in detail and welcome your call.
