The west boundary of the Purple Sage Ranch joins the Nueces River for six hundred feet along the west boundary. The river is crystal clear, quiet, and peaceful. There are large deep water holes, swift riffles, and narrow rapids. There is an abundant supply of bass, perch and catfish in the Nueces River. Water features offer fishing, swimming, canoeing, and tubing for the entire family to enjoy.
There is one water well, thirty feet deep, equipped with a ½ HP electric submersible pump.
Improvements on the ranch are neat and well maintained. The two bedroom home has been completely remodeled. The home has an up stair loft with king size bed, kitchen, dining area, living area with fireplace, bedroom, one bath and utility room. A large wooden deck built around a huge live oak tree adjoins the home. The home is cooled by four window units and has propane heat.
Adjoining the house is a 30 ft. X 35 ft. carport with crushed red granite floor. Other improvements include two storage buildings and a well house with new roof.
This is one of those small ranches where there is an abundance of wild game animals. Primary game animals that roam the area are Axis Deer, Wild Turkey, Whitetail Deer, and Wild Hogs.
It is very seldom that a small ranch with river front and no restrictive covenants come up for sale. The Purple Sage Ranch is an ideal place for a family to enjoy the sounds of nature, the flowing of water cascading over limestone rocks, breezes gently drifting through the trees, and birds enjoying the seasons. Some of the oldest and most beautiful trees in the Nueces Canyon can be seen from the patio deck. Giant Live Oak trees, several hundred years old, grow on the land. Sycamore, Walnut, Willow and Hackberry trees grow along the water front. Approximately thirty pecan trees produce native and paper shell pecans. Fences in good condition divide the property into two pastures. A new perimeter fence encloses the property. It is not unusual to find arrow heads in the old Indian campground.
Telephone service is provided by Southwest Texas Telephone Company. Electric service is provided by CP&L.
