Nineteen Mile RanchUvalde County
The Nineteen Mile Ranch is an 8,440 acre, low-fenced ranch with live water features, large mature trees, extreme changes in topography, and highway frontage for easy access.
Improvements: The ranch was recently improved with the addition of a limestone rock lodge. The lodge is located in one of the most picturesque settings on the property, just above the Nueces River overlooking a manicured meadow full of large trees and native grasses. The lodge consists of three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and an open kitchen and living space with a rock fireplace. It also has an attractive metal roof and covered concrete carport.
Wildlife: The ranch is also home to a variety of native wildlife and multiple species of free range exotics, including aoudad and axis deer. Whitetail deer are common throughout the ranch, as are javelina, feral hogs, and Rio Grande Turkey.
Water: The centerpiece of the ranch is one mile of frontage on the beautiful Nueces River. The river makes up the western-most boundary on the property and there are several access points from the ranch to the river. The Nueces is known for warm waters, Limestone cliffs, and plentiful fishing. There is also a crystal clear spring that heads along Nineteen Mile Creek, near where the creek meets the Nueces River. This cool water spring, in areas, is upwards of eight feet deep and 15-20 feet wide. Mostly rock bottomed and shaded by large trees, this is an ideal location for relaxing, swimming and fishing. This spring flows for approximately 1/4 mile through the western portion of the ranch and fish can be seen from the banks. For protection of the Edwards Aquifer Watershed, a Conservation Easement was placed on the property in 2007, with the easement holder being the city of San Antonio.
Vegetation: Along the rich and fertile Nueces River Basin and Nineteen Mile Creek, mature pecan trees, piñon pine trees, live oak, desert willows, and a diverse range of brush coverings are common.
Topography: Nineteen Mile is named after a long, seasonal creek running through the northern portion of the property. This creek is lined with limestone ridges and bluffs, large trees, dense brush cover and unobstructed panoramic views. The land is topographically diverse, with elevations on the ranch ranging from approximately 1,100 feet along the river bottom to around 1,700 feet in the highest peaks.
Location: From Uvalde, take Hwy 55 north towards Camp wood for 19 miles.
