O-Lo-Hi Ranch

Texas Hill Country Ranch For Sale Near Lampasas, Texas

PRICE: $9,949,000

O-Lo-Hi Ranch is the Texas Hill Country ranch for sale that checks all the boxes. This ranch offers tremendous investment potential, great water, stunning views, abundant wildlife, a prime location, and majestic hardwoods. The O-Lo-Hi Ranch is a turnkey +/-962-acre paradise ready for immediate enjoyment.

 

Landscape

One of the property's unique features is the abundance of large hardwood trees, including Ball Pecan, Post Oak, Cedar Elm, and Live Oak, which tower over the lush landscape. The terrain offers a perfect blend of Texas Hill Country summits, hardwood tree cover, and open fields. As you drive through the ranch, you'll encounter food plots, creek crossings, and hilltop mesas.

The views on this ranch are truly spectacular. Multiple vantage points allow you to take in the Colorado River Valley and San Saba Peak in the distance. All viewpoints are accessible by truck or SUV, making them ideal locations to build a forever home and enjoy stunning sunsets. The ranch is surrounded by large neighboring properties, enhancing the sense of privacy and providing unobstructed vista views. 

O-Lo-Hi Ranch boasts excellent soils for cultivation and construction materials. Over 230 acres consist of Sunev Clay Loam and Frio Clay Loam, which are ideal soils for growing feed for livestock and wildlife. These clay soils also facilitate surface water projects, reducing construction costs and enhancing water retention.

Strategic clearing has been done on the property to control cedar and mesquite populations, allowing mature trees, native grasses, and wildflowers to thrive. In the spring, the landscape bursts into color with native Texas wildflowers, including Bluebonnets, Indian Blankets, Indian Paintbrushes, Brown-Eyed Susans, Pink Ladies, White Prickly Poppies, Blackfoot Daisies, and more.

 

Water

Water is a plentiful resource on the ranch. A 6-inch Corix waterline runs the entire length of the property’s 3,481 feet of frontage along County Road 424/Old Lometa Highway. Additionally, there are two wells on the property: one services the homestead area with a yield of over 60 GPM, while the other is located at the back of the property and requires some maintenance to be fully operational. In an area where groundwater can be scarce, the O-Lo-Hi Ranch stands out.

Elliot Creek traverses the western portion of the property for over 1.3 miles. This wet-weather stream is beautifully lined with large pecan trees and wildflowers, and collects runoff from thousands of acres, forming pools in several locations along its bed. The ranch also features multiple wet-weather ravines and five surface water tanks, most of which have never been seen completely dry.

The ranch has significant potential for large-scale water improvements. With abundant clay lining material, constructing a lake and multiple ponds along Elliot Creek or the ravines would be straightforward and highly beneficial.

 

Improvements

The property includes a ready-to-use house with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living spaces, a back porch, and a carport. Near the home, you'll find a 60' x 40' metal shop and a goat shed. Recent upgrades to the home include a new air conditioning system, hot water heater, and septic system. The homestead is supplied with water from a well, and electricity is provided from the county road. There is also a water meter located near the front gate entrance.

One of the highlights of O-Lo-Hi Ranch is a morning or evening drive around the property. Despite its vast size, the extensive road system makes nearly the entire ranch accessible by truck. Multiple fields are currently used as food plots, and hunting stations are strategically placed throughout.

There is a set of cattle pens located by the back water well. The ranch is fenced with 7-strand barbed wire, with the western boundary being high-fenced. The property is currently Ag-exempt, though it is in a resting period with no livestock present. There are no easements on, through, or across the ranch except for utility easements. The ranch features two strategically placed entrances along the county road.

 

Wildlife

The diversity of the O-Lo-Hi ranch has created a wildlife sanctuary where native Texas game flourishes. Whitetail deer, turkey, dove, and hogs are abundant, making the ranch an excellent location for wildlife observation or hunting. Additionally, the landowners have spotted multiple coveys of native bobwhite quail. 

 

Location

The O-Lo-Hi Ranch is situated in the northern Texas Hill Country, just 12 minutes from Lometa and 28 minutes from Lampasas. It is also conveniently located 1 hour and 25 minutes from Austin, 1 hour and 35 minutes from Waco, and 2 hours and 15 minutes from Fort Worth. This prime location allows for easy weekend getaways or extended stays with quick access to local amenities.  

 

History 

This ranch boasts a rich history, having changed hands only a few times since the mid-1800s. The tales of its owners exploring Elliot Creek, discovering Native American artifacts, harvesting thousands of pecans, hunting wild game, and even searching for buried treasure are well-documented. Treasures unearthed on the property include coins, spurs, arrowheads, a pistol, and even a Mastodon tusk, each a testament to the ranch's storied past. This unique piece of land has always been carefully preserved, maintaining its natural beauty through the generations. Now, here is the opportunity to become the next steward of this extraordinary ranch and continue its legacy.
