Legendary is a word used to define unprecedented greatness; Pico Ranch embodies that very essence. This 1,605-acre ranch sits in a "pocket" of Shackelford County that produces bucks of mythical proportions. Known as Snake Den Road, this iconic area is known for management-minded landowners with large tracts of land capable of creating enormous animals wrapped up in the tallest of tales.

Pico Ranch is a top-of-the-line, turn-key Combo Ranch unrivaled on the market. With decades of recognition for excellence in grazing management and conservation practices, this land's health shines through, especially during the current dry conditions. Improved grasses, including B dahl and Klien grass, provide "drought-proof" grazing and the cross-fenced pastures allow for effortless rotations of cattle. Deer and other fauna take refuge in the edges of these grass pastures. Reliable water features throughout Pico Ranch have excellent clay bottoms that hold tight without seeping, including small ponds in the traps, deeper ponds on the draws with bass and perch, and the largest being a 4-acre "Crappie Pond." Several hills jut up from the landscape, creating a wildlife magnet with bull mesquites and premium browse. Sunflower fields scratched out of the food plots lure the mourning and whitewing dove circling through the surrounding hills and ponds. Large live oaks sit atop most of the highpoints throughout the property, providing shaded views of the rolling terrain. Pico Ranch is a unique turn-key offering of an exceptional tract of land in an extraordinary "neighborhood" of ranches.

Pico Ranch is a premium turn-key opportunity offering a luxury home designed to entertain. One enters from an expansive covered porch providing shade to the front entry and master ensuite. Once inside the great room, all attention is drawn to the stone fireplace anchoring the gorgeous cathedral ceilings. This area features an open concept living and dining room flanked by a designer kitchen with stainless steel appliances and rich granite countertops. Adjoining the kitchen is the threshold leading to the primary bedroom with a private sitting area, complete with a second wood-burning fireplace. Two in-law guest suites are accessed off the great room by a covered breezeway with an outdoor sauna surrounded by lush landscaping. A sturdy original rock homestead is very well preserved and built to last, featuring recent updates that lend to the overall charm. Conveniently between the homes sits a one-of-a-kind outdoor pavilion designed for outdoor entertaining and grilling with guests in an authentic Texas fashion while creating the perfect setting to dance under the stars.

Brokers Comments --  As a local from the area, I am honored to represent Pico Ranch and to be a small part of the history of the land on Snake Den Road. I grew up as a boy in awe of the most extraordinary stories from this area, and I have witnessed monsters run off into the woods every time I have traveled down that particular dirt road. Pico Ranch is a truly unique and rare offering of a  tract of land with incredible possibilities. Snake Den Road's lore reaches so much further than the locals, as many hunters across Texas know of this legendary road.
