Property Summary

Ready for mountain views that can’t be beat? We’ve got you covered. The Chihuahuan Desert is considered the most diverse desert in the Western Hemisphere and one of the most diverse arid regions in the world, but is also one of the most endangered regions in the world as well. Your 10 acre lot of undeveloped southwestern terrain is right in the heart of this area in Brewster County, Texas.

There are over one million acres of public land at your disposal at nearby Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park. Hike, camp, jog, kayak, and ride until your heart is content. There are sightseeing opportunities galore to take in nature, tour the area, or get in some bird watching.

Brewster County is situated in the western part of the state and named for Colonel Henry Percy Brewster, who was a Secretary of War for what was once known as the Republic of Texas. Alpine is the county seat of Brewster County and the perfect location for exploring many area attractions.

Locals say that one of the best views of the area is the view from the porch in Terlingua Ghost Town. Terlingua was a mining town in the early 1900’s and now boasts that they are the site of a championship chili cook drawing over 10,000 fans each November. If you didn’t know, the area is known as the Big Bend because of the big curve in the mighty Rio Grande River nearby.

While there’s no road leading directly to this property, there are visible access trails nearby. There are currently no build restrictions for your acreage, but it’s important to note that there are no sewer, water, or gas lines in the area. For your off-the-beaten-path camp you can install solar power and utilize water catchment and some haul water. If you’re thinking about putting in a well, just know that there is no guarantee you will hit usable water in this area. Ready to get off the grid? Give us a call today to secure this property.
