Crooked Tree Ranch

$36,000,000 Albany, TX 9,400± Deeded Acres

Executive Summary

Crooked Tree Ranch is 9,400± acres of prime ranching country in north central Texas. Owned by the same family for the last 25-plus years, the attention to land, vegetation, and improvements is evident. Native pastures have been carefully managed with minimal grazing, controlled burns, and attention to quail habitat. The ranch has a level to rolling terrain as you enter the property and transitions to tree-covered draws toward the back of the ranch. With over ten miles of improved roads, traveling through the property is easy in all weather conditions.

The headquarters are the first set of improvements you will encounter. Structures include the manager’s home, guest home, barns, working pens, round pen, an arena, dog kennels, and a small office building. A water collection system is also found at the headquarters where city water is collected. The owner’s home is located toward the back of the ranch. The three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath home is accompanied by a rock storage building and barn.

The area is known for great hunting with the Crooked Tree having many options. Native whitetail deer are very plentiful, with an additional 200-acre high fence hunting area available. While quail numbers throughout north Texas have been down the past several years, quail hunting on the ranch has been excellent with continued quality habitat and management. Dove hunting is also great in season. Other income sources are a cattle lease, wind energy lease, and a possible mineral lease.
