Bear Man Bluff Ranch, Silsbee, Texas, USA, 280.00 Acres

$3,520,000

Hidden along the banks of the Neches River on a historic high point is Bear Mans Bluff Ranch. The stewards of this ranch have transformed the land into an idyllic family retreat that features the highest end of authentic Texas ranch lifestyle. The main lodge sits overlooking the river, surrounded by massive oaks and cypress trees. Sitting on the porch carries owners and guests to a simpler time, while offering extensive comfort and convenience. Miles of trails, a beautiful bass lake, a river fishing dock and multiple other amenities make this ranch one of the finest offerings to be found in Texas.
 
Location: The ranch is located 6 miles north of Silsbee Texas and is located at the end of the road for the ultimate in privacy.
Habitat: Bear Mans Bluff Ranch is place where multiple habitats converge; from longleaf pine forests, cypress filled bayous, and hardwood bottomlands. The mixture of tree species is incredible, dominated by tremendous cypress and red oaks, but includes other old growth trees on the ranch such as water oaks, elms, dogwoods, magnolias, gum and pine, just to name a few. Years of clearing and planting native trees and grasses and engineering the roads and water supplies around the ranch is truly unique and amazing.
The surrounding properties are primarily large wooded tracts and no other structures are visible off of the property. Across the Neches river, the land is all part of thousands of acres of the Big Thicket National Preserve.
 
A unique feature of this ranch is that during the winter, much of the property is surrounded by water among the cypress trees as it winds it way throughout the area. During the summer months, the water recedes and the understory becomes a beautiful grassland which is mowed and maintained. Approximately 180 acres of the ranch has had most of the understory removed to create a park like setting with large trees and good grasses. The northern half of the ranch has remained relatively untouched and is dominated by pines and thicker brush creating a privacy boundary and refuge for wildlife.
 
Wildlife: White-tailed deer are abundant on the property and during the winter months, it is a haven for migrating ducks finding refuge amongst the flooded timber. Eagles and Ospreys are common in the area and a multitude of shore birds make their home here. Other wildlife includes hogs, predators, and many species of song birds.
