Wade Ranch comprises 642 +/- high-fenced acres offering first-class amenities, substantial surface water, exotics, and trophy whitetail deer in eastern Shackelford County. Pulling up to the entrance feels like a scene from Jurassic Park with an awe-inspiring, custom remote-operated gate and professionally installed drought-tolerant landscaping. Strategically placed, three-quarters of a mile down a meandering gravel driveway, are the ranch headquarters with sweeping views of a private 14-acre lake with a dock set to impress. From headquarters, the extensive road system wanders throughout the ranch, with senderos offering the capability of viewing animals in the thick brush. This property also features ten additional ponds that fluctuate with rainfall yet consistently deliver a reliable water source. This ranch is primarily bull mesquite trees with native grasses that provide exceptional bedding for wildlife, with an occasional live oak tree for shade. Further down the road is a large wheat field that rotates with sunflowers depending on the season. Most years, this field is chock-full of mourning and white-winged dove. 


Upon entering the Hunting Lodge, one cannot help but notice the detail that went into the construction, such as stunning woodwork, heavy beams, and decorators' ingenuity. An expansive main floor offers an open-concept living room that flows into the modern kitchen featuring high-quality stainless steel appliances. Upstairs is a large loft area for relaxing and entertainment currently set up to sleep extra guests. Large, engineered windows line the west walls for natural lighting and elegant sunsets over the lake. Wade Ranch also boasts a beautiful ranch-style home that embodies a warm and rustic feel complimented with the utmost quality of craftsmanship. A custom fireplace extends to the ceiling, demanding attention when entering the home. The open-concept living area and updated kitchen serve as the heart of the house. Just beyond sits the downstairs primary suite with a sizable bedroom, walk-in shower, tub, and plenty of closet space. Upstairs are two additional bedrooms sharing a spacious bathroom. An Outfitter's Cabin is located just outside the lodge for privacy, equipped with a kitchen and full bath in a studio-style layout. A "Party Barn" with a large BBQ pavilion provides shade to enjoy outdoor activities. Additional improvements on the ranch include a set of pens/stalls, working cattle pens, and a spacious barn with covered parking. 


Agent's Comments -- A special pride of ownership comes with owning a gentlemen's ranch of this caliber. In constructing this ranch, the owner mainly focused on creating a first-class hunting, fishing, and recreational experience for friends and family. This property has never been used for commercial hunting. This ranch can host large groups or events such as bachelor parties, weddings, or, ideally commercial hunting operations. The Wade Ranch is a short distance from the Albany airport, which will accommodate most private jets. Current game pictures are available upon request.
