Located just 10 miles from the outskirts of San Angelo and 20 minutes from downtown, the X-Mile Ranch has been meticulously maintained by the same family for over 40 years. An oasis in the Concho Valley region, this exceptional 3,413± acre ranch features spring-fed live water for most of the year, tremendous white-tail deer and turkey hunting and good bob-white quail numbers in most years. The ranch also features two extraordinary custom rock residences and a full complement of support structures and amenities for ranching or recreation. With an elevation change of almost 300’, the topography is diverse from steep draws with wildlife cover to live oak dotted open valleys with lush grass flanking either side of spring-fed seasonal creeks. X-Mile Ranch is a first-class ranch property with exhibiting attention to detail and an emphasis on legacy, and deserves an in-person viewing to fully appreciate the uniqueness of the ranch.

The topography and land class diversity found on the ranch is exceptional and perfect for a combination livestock and hunting operation. The broad fertile valleys along spring-fed seasonal creeks produce abundant grass, while the large live oaks, steep ridges, scrub oak motts, and rocky breaks provide cover for wildlife.
At the ranch entrance on Highway 208 the elevation is approximately 2,215 feet. An all-weather road winds upward and eastward to an elevation of roughly 2,415 feet where the residences enjoy incredible views in all directions and the beautiful San Angelo skyline can be seen at night while sitting next to the fire. As you continue east the elevation begins to fall rapidly as you drop off the high ridge to the valley below. Elevation falls to approximately 2,135 feet where the creeks exit the ranch on the east boundary.
In April 2011, the “Wildcat” fire consumed the entire ranch except for the improvement sites. Since that time the owners have devoted countless labor and machine hours to clearing the burned juniper and minimizing regrowth. The result is a beautifully manicured, mostly open property, with minimal junipers and mesquite and abundant grass. Clearing of the invasive junipers and mesquite has dramatically improved the wells on the property and increased the flow from the four springs found on the property.
The property is cross-fenced into seven pastures and all perimeter and cross-fencing was built after the fire and consists of net wire below two strands of barbed wire.
X-Mile Ranch has all the features a ranch buyer could want. Located near the center of Texas, the ranch has new fencing, abundant water, lush grass, and is teeming with wildlife.Live oak trees and scrub oak motts sculpt the landscape with very minimal mesquite and juniper infestation. The custom stone homes and complementary structures have paved access and are only a short commute to the services and conveniences offered by the city of San Angelo. The hard work has been done and the ranch is ready for a new proud owner.
“X” (Ten) Mile Ranch, named for its short driving distance from the northern boundaries of the city of San Angelo, has been meticulously maintained by the same family (now the 5th generation of San Angelo) for over 40 years. The property is approximately 1.5 hours from Midland Odessa and Abilene and approximately 3.5 hours from San Antonio, Austin, and Fort Worth.
X-Mile Ranch is in northern Tom Green County with the north border touching the Coke County line. San Angelo is the county seat and was originally founded on the Concho River as a frontier town adjacent to Fort Concho in the 1860s. Ranching and farming in the immediate area surrounding the Concho River fueled the original growth of the community which is now home to 100,000 residents. The region boasts three lakes and is home to Angelo State University which has an enrollment of over 10,000 students and is part of the Texas Tech University System.
Acreage (Deeded & Leased)
The double-gate entry on Highway 208 leads to an all-weather road that ascends up and around to a Y leading separately to the two compounds. The homes are approximately 5,000 and 4,000 square feet respectively and consist of the best finishes, lighting, custom fireplaces, custom bathroom and kitchen tile, Saltillo tile floors, high ceilings, outdoor kitchens, built-in grills, covered porches, and thoughtfully designed landscaping.
The main residence is a custom stone home with approximately 5,000 square feet of living area. The home has five to six bedrooms depending on use, three-and-a-half bathrooms, a full side and front yard with attached storage, and a beautiful basement entertainment space. On the back of the house is a four-car covered carport. Complementing the residence is a 2,000 square foot rock barn providing covered parking for additional vehicles and utility vehicles. The barn has a fireplace, gathering area, and numerous amenities. A lighted roping arena sits adjacent to a five stall horse barn complete with fireplace, tack room, and feed room. Finally, a second stone horse barn has been converted to a greenhouse.
The second compound includes an approximately 4,000 square foot custom stone home with five bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a detached three-car stone garage. This house faces west to the sunset and the rear of the house overlooks a rapid drop in elevation to the “backside” of the ranch. Intricate rock work frames the grounds and landscaping surrounding the house. Several holding pens are found at this location and a metal barn is nearby.
On the southwest edge of the ranch is a rock tank and yet another custom stone building that was designed as a hunter’s camp. This idyllic site and building has a fire pit/grill, sleeps 10+ and sports a walk-in cooler among other features. All the rock structures on the ranch were built using stone native to the property.
The ranch is extremely well-watered via a combination of six wells with submersible pumps and five working windmills. With just normal rainfall, live water from four springs flows through the ranch in the Spring and Fall months in the form of springs and seasonal creeks, replenishing livestock tanks in each of the seven pastures.
The hunting at X-Mile is all you might expect and is fantastic especially for deer and turkey, and in some years, a thriving population of bobwhite quail. The property has been lightly hunted in recent years. Much of the east boundary is high fenced and all or part of the ranch could be high fenced economically.
In addition to hunting, the ranch has numerous spots that are ideal for hiking, biking, horseback riding, bird watching, and ATV/UTV adventures. A Native American settlement/campsite has produced authentic arrowheads and artifacts dated hundreds to thousands of years old.

“Most brokers have a strong sense of independence, so brokerages work around that, but Hall and Hall is not about the one working alone—their strength and longevity is built on the group, on the family,” explains Tyler Jacobs. “It’s the basic fundamentals and traditional values that we’ve thrived on since the company was founded back in 1946.”
Our Hall and Hall broker, Randy Shelton, kept us in the loop as though it were. Our sale hinged on that of larger surrounding parcels, and when an initial offer fell through, Randy went back to the drawing board and found a suitable buyer who shared our values. That meant a lot to us, as our property had been in the family for more than 100 years.
From the first time I walked through the door, I sensed Hall and Hall’s highest goals were to understand who I was and build a relationship, to understand what made my property special, and to find the buyer. Their discipline and focus was apparent. Throughout the entire process, their approach towards reality was different from the experiences I have had previously. Genuine would be the word I would use to describe everyone at Hall and Hall.
I interviewed 4 agents and selected Hall and Hall because of the agency’s reputation for expertise in high end ranch property and global marketing. I had the pleasure of working with Tim Murphy on the sale of a family property in the Paradise Valley, Montana. We believe he represented our family interests well and contributed to the integrity of the property by joining together buyer and seller and a shared love for this special place in our lives.
Bill McDavid was an outstanding and very patient partner in this sale. His expertise in the market and marketing of the property was excellent. I would use him again in a heartbeat to either buy or sell a ranch property.
“Guns, bear spray and handsaws: These aren’t the tools of your average luxury real-estate agent. But ranch brokers like Mr. Murphy, a Bozeman-based partner at Hall & Hall, occupy a unique and increasingly challenging niche in the world of multimillion-dollar property.”
“When it was time to invest in a ranch for our family, we knew we needed to work with Hall and Hall. The expertise is unsurpassed.”
In 1988, Joel Leadbetter became a partner at Hall and Hall where he has been instrumental in completing complicated, high-profile deals such as the recent sale of Texas’ historic 512,000-acre Waggoner Ranch.
“The professionalism, preparation, and overall positive demeanor exhibited… were truly impressive… I have never before worked with a more dedicated, knowledgeable, and level-headed sales professional.”
I had been looking for the right property for several years and Elliott Davenport’s insight into the quail plantation market and his ability to think strategically was instrumental in helping me find our new place. Elliott was helpful on all technical aspects of contracting and due diligence. His post closing help with hiring and contractors made the process much easier as well.
I have purchased 4 ranches through Hall and Hall over the past 20 years, and there is simply no other team in the world like them. They have navigated complexity, professionally attended to every detail, operated with fairness and integrity, and demonstrated an unwavering commitment to me– whether representing me or the person on the other side of the deal.
