Water Canyon Ranch

$2,575,000 Guthrie, TX 2,952± Deeded Acres

Executive Summary

A rare opportunity located in King County and the heart of the “big ranch” country of the Texas Rolling Plains, Water Canyon Ranch is a combination production ranch with excellent recreational appeal. The main ranch gate is located on the western boundary along a well-maintained gravel county road 1.5 miles from HWY 82. The west central portion of the ranch at approximately 1,800 feet of elevation is level to gently rolling with 200± acres of improved grass (WW B. Dahl Bluestem) planted on Class 2 soils and generally open areas of productive native range. As you move north, the property begins to form canyons draining to the South Wichita River. As you move west, the property drains to Newman Creek, which runs south to north through the eastern third of the ranch before leaving the property on the northern boundary at an elevation of 1,605’. The area surrounding Newman Creek has dense cedar and mesquite brush with rugged and steep bluffs rising from year-round deep pools on the creek bottom. The ranch is well-watered with a combination of dirt tanks, spring-fed pools along Newman Creek, and a rural water line serving eight troughs and the 2,853 sq. ft. stone ranch house. The owner has completed extensive brush management projects across the ranch with some areas reseeded to desirable native grasses. This area is well known for its trophy whitetail deer and large numbers of wild bobwhite quail, as well as large numbers of turkey, doves, and feral hogs. If you are looking for a high quality recreational ranch with a significant livestock production component, The Water Canyon Ranch deserves your attention.
