If you’re a fan of wide open spaces, dark starry nights, great views and a mild climate this one’s for you. Grubb Ranch is located just outside of the town of Fort Davis, Texas and it’s cool.
This property is 221.5 acres of native rangeland that varies from gently rolling hills to the lush, sub-irrigated bottoms and spring fed pools of water along Chihuahua Creek. The higher areas are typical high desert grama grasslands while the lower areas have deep soils dominated by taller grass species with intermittent motts of cottonwood trees and scattered hackberry. In addition to the natural water there are three wells on the property, two of which are equipped with submergible pumps. The other is unused. The perimeter of the property is fenced with relatively new five strand barbed wire fencing.
Home On The Range – The adobe home is two-storied in classic country ranch style with an inviting front porch. It has 4 bedrooms, one bath, covered wood floors and high beadboard ceilings. The original gas light fixtures have been converted to electric. The home is heated by a wood burning stove and several propane gas furnaces throughout the home. One window a/c unit is utilized when cooling is rarely needed. A formal dining is central to the house and the large kitchen has been recently updated with new cabinetry and appliances. The home is also sporting a new metal roof, fresh stucco and surrounded by decorative and pipe metal fencing.
The ranch is situated at around 4,800 feet in elevation with expansive views in every direction. It is located at the end of an all-weather caliche road and offers great privacy and peacefulness. This property offers many possibilities and has been used in many ways over the years from ranching, farming and even the shooting location of a country music video. It is also located within the boundaries of the Texas Davis Mountains AVA (American Viticultural Area).
