Roosa Ranch - 3,051 Acres
Location - Nestled just north of the historic community of Vance, the 3,050 acre Ranch is unquestionably one of the finest ranches currently available in Texas. Lying completely in Real County, and boasting almost 3 miles of paved frontage on stunning Ranch Road 335, the property is just 1 hour from HEB, Walmart, a large assortment of restaurants, and the full aviation services of the Uvalde Garner Airfield. The ranch has an additional 1/2 mile of paved frontage on scenic Ranch to Market 2631.
Terrain - The Ranch is a splendid mix of majestic mountains and enormous wide valleys lined with a vast array of delightful oak-covered meadows. Indian mounds, caves and large rock bluffs dot the towering landscape, and both wet and dry creeks spill out of every canyon. A recently improved network of jeep roads offers some of the most breathtaking views in the Hill Country, as well as access to almost every part of the property. Pristine box canyons are everywhere, and provide a sense of privacy that is simply unparalleled.
Water - The live water and springs scattered around the Ranch must be seen to be believed. The main spring-fed creek has been rock solid through the current drought and is highlighted by waterholes, waterfalls, 2 large concrete dam lakes, and an amazing new rock-lined lake with astonishingly clear, blue-green water. Another creek near the lodge has been recently improved with 2 small earthen dams and should be ready for splashing and lounging any day now!
Animals - This magnificent property is surrounded by over 10 miles of tightlock type game fence and contains an additional 1.5 mile high cross-fence. In addition to native whitetail deer, hogs and turkey, the Roosa Ranch is proud to raise Gemsbok, Eland, Addax and Blackbuck Antelope, Scimitar-Horned Oryx, Axis, Fallow, Sika and Red Deer, as well as Aoudad and several other varieties of wild mountain sheep. A stocked catfish and perch pond is also on-site and guaranteed to keep kids and grandkids entertained for hours.
Improvements - The main ranch headquarters has a nice two-story 6 bedroom, 4 bath lodge with expansive rock patios, large pool room, comfortable lounging areas, massive dining table, cute kitchen, and a card table with views of all the exotic game. About 100 feet away is a neat wood cabin with 3 separated private rooms for overflow guests or to get away from those kids and grandkids!
Located a few valleys over from the headquarters are an older foreman’s home, a newer metal tool and equipment barn, and another newer skinning barn with two large walk-in freezers and rack system to move game in and out. There are also 2 large overhead feed silos and numerous blinds and feeders on the ranch
