The Costa Grande Ranch is located in southern Calhoun County, once home to multiple large coastal prairie cattle operations. Over the years, many of the large tracts of land have been divided, developed, or placed into conservation easements. Recently, the adjacent Powderhorn Ranch was acquired by the State of Texas to be developed into a State Park and Wildlife Management Area. Costa Grande Ranch is one of the last remaining large parcels available in the area and home to a diverse population of deer, hogs and 400+ species of bird, making it ideal for a sportsman or conservationist. It is located 2.5 hours from Houston, Austin and San Antonio. An information date is set for April 7th.

“Costa Grande Ranch provides easy access to Shoalwater Bay, Dewberry Island and deep water,” said Scott Shuman of Hall and Hall Auctions. “It is unencumbered by conservation easements, which is rare in this part of Texas.”

Char-Lin Ranch is unique to Corsicana, Texas, because of its large size and regular shape. The main home is the centerpiece of the property and perched atop a hill that offers panoramic views of the pastures, the lake, and surrounding countryside. The four-level home has a pool & spa with lap swimming lanes, a trophy room loft, and four fire places.  The estate also includes two additional homes. It is a productive ranch with fine cattle and horse improvements all located within an hour of Dallas/Fort Worth.  An information date is set for April 9th.
