FULLY FURNISHED SHOWPLACE WITH 100% MINERALS!
Vaquero Ranch is located just 16 miles from infamous Kyle Field on the campus of Texas A&M University, only 15 minutes to the Tower Point shopping center in thriving College Station, or you may jump on Highway 6, which is only 5 miles from the ranch, for a quick one-hour drive to Houston.
This unique showplace has been an entertainment headquarters for whitetail and exotic hunters for over a decade, and is truly a one of a kind recreational ranch retreat set in an ideal location!
Paved county road access dead ends soon after the property creating the upmost in privacy for the owners and guests at Vaquero.
After entering the flagstone and wrought iron entrance, the paved private road ascends up the hill, around the beautiful aerated fishing pond up to the bronze elk statue at center of the circle drive.
The pavement morphs and widens into a cement driveway as the log home comes into view. And what a view!
The lodge sits high on a hill - 250 in elevation offering panoramic views of memorable sunsets over the Brazos River bottom at Allen Farm.
The log home has been constructed with Arkansas Field Stone and Heartwood Western Hemlock Pine logs brought in by train from Washington and Oregon. The Main House offers over 5,500 square feet of living area consisting of 4 bedrooms, 4 full baths, 3 half baths, 3 flagstone fireplaces, a loft dining room, spacious great room, and an oversized executive office. The Hemlock logs were hand hewn for an authentic hands-on, artisan construction feel.
Downstairs is a 3-car garage, and a game room with handmade cedar pool table, poker table, blackjack table, and bar. The furnishings complete the western hunting lodge feel by featuring pieces from the King Ranch Wildlife Collection that are offered with the sale. There are many features that these homes offer that many will not - like copper crafted guttering and a 6-acre irrigated Saint Augustine yard!
For your entertainment there is also a putting green, aerated fishing pond with rock pier, and an Aggie Cadet Boot shaped swimming pool!
The Guest Home is a smaller version of the Main House with identical building materials and matching furnishings. It offers 2,400 square feet of living area with 4 bedrooms, a dining room, living room, downstairs bedroom with a kitchenette, 2 car garage, and rear deck offering fantastic views.
The property is just over 100 acres with 85 acres that is high fenced with white-tailed and Pierre David deer. Dama Gazelles graze in their own featured area adjacent to the houses for easy viewing.
There are three ponds, two of them offering trophy bass, crappie and catfish. Automatic fish feeders and fresh-water aeration pumps circulate the water, enhancing fish growth and reducing algae.
The ranch offers co-op metered water for the homes and two water wells supplying water for irrigation and animals. 25 head of colorful Longhorn cows will be conveyed to the new buyers as well. All oil and gas minerals are Seller owned, and convey to the new Buyer making this an all-in, exceptional offering.
