70,000-acre Lely Ranch near Presidio on the market

PRESIDIO COUNTY – A huge West Texas spread is up for grabs, and property brokers say it’s the largest ranch on the market in the state, according to the Dallas Morning News.

The Lely Ranch near the city of Presidio and Big Bend Ranch State Park has more than 70,000 acres. The sprawling Presidio County property has been owned by a foreign dairy magnate since the 1960s.

“Rarely do we see ranches in the same family for 50 years for sale,” Dallas-based property broker Icon Global said about the property. “Truly the last frontier and a chance to buy your own Big Bend. This landscape is vastly unexplored and uninhabited wild country.”

The Lely Ranch comes with its own airstrip. The mountainous property has the 4,286-foot Cerro Tren Peak, creeks and arroyos. And there’s a brick headquarters home on the property.

The property is one of two big ranches Icon Global is marketing in that area.

The Dallas-based real estate firm is also marketing the 37,000-acre KC7 Ranch near Interstate 10 in the foothills of the Davis Mountains.

Icon Global has handled some of Texas’ biggest rural land sales, including the 535,000-acre W.T. Waggoner Ranch near Wichita Falls.
