Cruz VerdeWillacy County
Located just 30 minutes from fabulous fishing at Port Mansfield and 15 minutes from the HEB in Raymondville, the Cruz Verde Ranch offers the best of both worlds. Nilgai, Whitetails, Turkey, Hogs, and scores of Dove and Quail. This area of Texas draws thousands of bird watchers, with over 400 bird species observed throughout the year. This historic property is part of an original Spanish Land Grant with ownership remaining within the same family for generations.
Location: The ranch is located just 3.75 miles north of Raymondville on the Northside of Conley Road via a private road. Just a short 30-minute drive down Hwy 77 to the Harlingen Airport.
Topography: The Cruz Verde Ranch is in the South Texas sand sheet, covered in virgin brush with giant 30+ foot Mesquite trees, Ebony, Granjeno, Brazil, Guayacan, Hog plum, and numerous mixed brush. The soils consist mainly of Sarita fine sand renowned for growing many Forbes and native grasses. Guinea grass surrounds many of the trees. Several small ponds in the lower areas on the property, with an outstanding ability to retain water, especially within the rainy seasons, endorse the benefits of the sound natural clay base underneath the sandy topsoil.
Wildlife: In the category of small-acreage, low-fenced properties, Deer hunting is second to none. The Cruz Verde Ranch emanates aspects of a superiorly managed property, testifying the current owner’s decades of dedicated expert care. Nilgai is plentiful as this property is low-fenced with a 4400-acre related family owner. Hogs, mobs of turkey, and superb dove hunting near the ponds compound in making this exclusive property as good as it gets.
Improvements: A well-built three-bedroom two 1/2-bathroom 3200 sq. ft. brick house on the property with a 900 sq. ft. two-bedroom, one bath apartment above the attached garage. An enclosed steel barn used for rebuilding antique cars, a wood workshop housed under a sizeable three-sided wood frame equipment barn with built-in shelving and a concrete slab floor, and a recently refurbished pool provide active entertainment and productivity. A North Alamo Water Supply line runs up to the front gate. One water well supplies the house with water, and a covered water filter and softener treat the water—the well water also pipes to the tank.
Minerals: This is a surface estate sale only. No minerals convey.
