Property Description

Nestled in the heart of the Davis Mountains, and encompassing all of Brooks Mountain, Livermore Ranch is largely situated upon alpine topography and includes major to minor peaks, shear bluffs, notorious rock formations, deep shaded canyons, and large meadows which create a diverse ecological system featuring both aspen forests and productive Chihuahuan grasslands. Livermore Ranch has an abundance of game and non-game wildlife. Big game hunters will enjoy the mature and managed populations of mule deer, elk, and aoudad, along with mountain lions, turkeys, and javelinas. Bird enthusiasts will appreciate the many coveys of both scaled and Montezuma quail as well as doves, hawks, and prolific annual migratory species. The ranch also features exceptional improvements for both friends and family including a six-bedroom, five-and-one-half-bath adobe brick-styled home, traditional of the Trans-Pecos region, as well as various horse barns, shops, cattle facilities, and housing for ranch management. While a truly private end-of-the-road ranch, there are no impediments to access or internal navigation. Its a ranch with four real seasons, plenty of west Texas sunshine and a high elevation climate which encompasses 4,772 acres of exclusive opportunity. Livermore Ranch truly is one of the last of the great places in Texas, whose history and scenic beauty will be most appreciated by a personal tour.Offering the high desert grasslands of the Chihuahuan ecosystem at 5,000 feet above MSL, to the verdant alpine oasis at nearly 8,000 feet above MSL, the ranch combines both the deep box canyons and the mountain summits to truly create a rare setting, especially in Texas. The Lodge at the center of the ranch is the Livermore Lodge, which offers a panoramic view of the mountain complex, and is a stately 8,166 sq. ft. Livermore Ranch~Last of the Great Places offers a variety of operational opportunities. Historically, the main usage of the ranch has been recreationally focused. The livestock component will likely always be subservient to hunting, ecotourism, photography, and the innumerable recreational opportunities of the ranch. The ranch is an obvious candidate for placement in a permanent conservation easement or program. Large and small game abound on the ranch and are likely its most valued accessory. Trophy mule deer and aoudad are both plentiful, well managed, and in proper age structures to annually harvest trophy specimens. Protein feeders around the ranch have served to supplement the large game for years, and have produced substantial results. Elk have recently taken up nearly permanent residence, mountain lions have historically been taken on an annual basis, and there is assumptive evidence of black bears on the ranch. The ranch is home to a stunning diversity of birds and plants, ranging from golden eagles and lucifer hummingbirds, to Texas madrone trees and delicate orchids. Livermore Ranch ~ Last of the Great Places is named so almost uniquely due to its aesthetic considerations. As a backdrop, the Davis Mountains are stunning from any point on the ranch. The cauldron face of Baldy Peak, and the shear dominance of Brooks Mountain never escape ones line of sight, and are nearly as prominent from 50 miles as they are from 500 yards. The Sky Island formation rises out of the floor of the Chihuahuan grasslands into a unique alpine setting, yielding transitions, vistas, and promontory features that are truly special. It is truly a ranch to get lost in, and quite easy to make the decision to stay another day. It is the rarest opportunity to discover the Last of the Great Places.
