Glass Mountain Ranch comprises over 17,000 acres of stunning west Texas scenery, featuring quality improvements, plenty of native wildlife, and nearly endless possibilities as a recreational ranch, cattle ranch, hunting operation, or private retreat.
Located approximately 35 miles northeast of Alpine off of State Highway 67, the ranch is situated in Brewster and Pecos Counties -- two of the largest counties in the state, with some of the most interesting histories. The ranch is only four and a half hours from San Antonio and only three hours from El Paso. Local communities of Fort Stockton and Marathon are only about a 50 minute drive.
Glass Mountain Ranch takes its name from the picturesque mountain range on the east side of this property. The tallest peak in this range reaches 6,289 feet, towering over the otherwise flat to rolling terrain, and affecting not only the scenery, but also the area's weather patterns and wildlife activities. Tall mountain pines stand at attention along its ridgelines, and the mountain scenery provides a stunning and dramatic backdrop for the entire region.
Improvements on the ranch include a main headquarters, consisting of a comfortable home, plus extensive equine facilities including stalls and an arena. Another satellite home nearby makes perfect quarters for a ranch foreman or staff.
Over 65 miles of well-maintained roads provide access to every corner of the ranch, allowing easy travel to secluded spots like the abandoned gold mine or the mountain lion cave. A favorite gathering spot is the lookout point, with views of the entire mountain range and most of the ranch. The view from the lookout is nothing short of spectacular.
Glass Mountain Ranch includes three water wells placed strategically throughout the ranch, serving 40 water troughs for cattle and wildlife.
Native game includes elk, mule deer, auodad sheep, pronghorn, javelina, turkey, quail, bobcat, badgers, and mountain lions.
The ranch includes a substantial portion of the mineral rights which will convey with the sale. A great deal of mineral activity has been observed nearby, and neighboring ranches are currently leased to major Texas oil companies with wells in progress.
The Glass Mountain Ranch offers classic west Texas landscapes and mountain scenery, cattle production, big game hunting, hiking, sight seeing, mineral potential, and close proximity to the best little town in west Texas -- Alpine.
