A sprawling Texas ranch situated near one of the state’s largest wildlife conservation areas has hit the market for $5.4 million.
The Powderhorn North Ranch is an expansive 1,352-acre coastal cattle ranch with over a mile of lake frontage near the town of Port O’Connor in Calhoun County, Texas.
The Texas ranch is equipped with two water wells, a fenced perimeter, cross-fenced pastures for grazing, and a set of working pens, according to a description of the property provided by Texas-based real estate firm Foster Farms & Ranch, the agency tasked with connecting a buyer to the $5.4 million ranch.
Known for its scenic beaches, first-rate dining scene, and exceptional deep-sea fishing, Port O’Connor is widely considered “the Gulf Coast’s best kept secret”
With such close proximity to Port O’Connor and the Powderhorn Wildlife Management Area (PWMA), future owners of the coastal cattle ranch are sure to benefit from the wide array of aquatic wildlife, including speckled trout, snook, drum, and flounder.
Besides being rich in wildlife and outdoor excursions, the Powderhorn North Ranch is also rich in history, having once been considered an essential port of entry to the western frontier’s promised lands, according to Foster Farms & Ranch.
“Owners of the Powderhorn North Ranch enjoy harvesting native deer and hogs, catching redfish off their shoreline, and the finest duck hunting in Texas,” Foster Farm & Ranch said in its description.
The PWMA consists of over 15,000 acres of freshwater and brackish wetlands, coastal tallgrass prairie, and live oak mottes. The conservation area, which the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department owns, also includes several miles of bayfront on both Powderhorn Lake and Matagorda Bay.
Powderhorn North is not the only Texas ranch to hit the market in 2023. Over the last few months, the 1,650-acre Seven-D Ranch and the 22,000-acre Double T Ranch both were listed recently for $45 million and $20 million, respectively.
