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. 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 site. 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 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 home 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 via state highway 208, 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 headquarters 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. The house makes an exceptional primary owner’s residence but could be utilized as a comfortable weekend retreat or lodge for owners and guests.
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.
A second exquisite residence is the focus of a second compound located on 200± acres of the ranch. This improvement site includes a stone barn with concrete floor, stone shop, stone horse barn with tack room and feed room and a lighted roping arena. This property is being offered separately but is available with the main X-Mile Ranch.
The ranch is extremely well-watered via a combination of five wells with submersible pumps and four working windmills. With just normal rainfall, live water from three springs flows through the ranch in the Spring and Fall months in the form 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.
