The L5 Ranch is an exceptional recreational ranch that is set up for hunting and livestock operation. The gentle roll of the land and the brush and cedar control shows through the land management that has taken place on much of the ranch for the last 80+ years. Perched on one of the higher hilltops is the main home – with spectacular 360-degree views. The hunting on the ranch is one of the best that we have seen in the Hill Country for a low-fenced ranch. Herds of free-roaming Axis are frequently seen on the property along with a well-managed number of whitetails, blackbuck, oryx, fallow, turkey, and other wildlife.
The L5 Ranch encompasses 11,671+/- acres and is truly a hunter’s paradise. The terrain is gently rolling with long-range views from many parts of the property. Pristine beauty shows throughout. The main house is approximately 6,318+/- sf and sits on top of one of the higher points on the ranch. The headquarters with two houses, barns, and working pens are close to the main home. Throughout the ranch, 14 water wells supply numerous water troughs and tanks that provide water to wildlife and livestock.
Located between Junction and Sonora south of IH-10 off paved Sutton CR 312 with an approximate one-mile deeded easement to the front gate. This property is 48 +/- miles from Junction, 28 +/- miles from Sonora. Midland is 180+/- miles and Austin is 180+/- miles.
When driving on the ranch, you can see the care that has been taken in managing the land. With good grasslands, large clusters of live oaks, shin oaks, and other hardwoods, the ranch shows off its potential. Much of the cedar has been cleared from many parts of the ranch while leaving some parts for cover for the wildlife. The roll of the land is part of the beauty with nice draws and long-range views from the hilltops. Most of the perimeter fencing is low fenced with one neighbor being high fenced. Most of the interior fencing is in good to excellent condition. With 27+/- tanks that are fed with the 14 water wells, and over 6+ miles of water lines to 30 concrete water troughs, water is prevalent across the property. During the last several years, the owner has sprayed over 6,000+/- acres to control the cactus. There is a deeded easement through the north part of the ranch to an adjacent owner to the east.
The property offers a main home and two other houses that make up the headquarters. Other improvements include storage barns and three sets of working pens.
The main attraction of the ranch is the three-bedroom and 3.5-bath main home that consists of 6,318+/- sf of air-conditioned space with covered porches. The home is a rustic modern style with a large gathering room with a bar, a spacious dining room with great views, and a modern kitchen with butler’s pantry. When walking into the home, the entryway porch is well designed with sitting areas. Views from the main porch are long-range and includes an inviting pool, outdoor kitchen, and fireplace for gatherings.
Within the headquarters is a 1,700+/- sf foreman’s house that was remodeled in 2005. It consists of three bedrooms and one bath.
There is a large bunkhouse, two barns, and a large workshop/feed room for feed and tool storage.
The L5 Ranch provides excellent hunting or a wildlife enthusiast’s dream, as it is home to an abundance of wildlife including whitetail deer, axis deer, blackbuck antelope, hogs, Rio Grande turkeys, and dove. There are 36 feeding stations throughout the ranch ideally located to supplement the wildlife. Most of the stations are paired with a blind setup.
There are 14 water wells on the property. Over the past 4 years, the seller has added more than 6,000+/- feet of water lines. Water is piped to 30 concrete water troughs and 27 dirt tanks.
