About Livermore Ranch

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

There are few truly great ranches available in Texas—ranches that are intrinsically valuable, with unique geographic features and established wildlife resources—ranches that are private and encompassing, yet still easily accessed and navigated, even among the challenging and awe-inspiring mountainscapes of the region—ranches that are true to the sky island ecosystem, and enjoyable for friends and family.

Livermore Ranch is one of the last great places in Texas.

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. It’s 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.

LOCATION

Livermore Ranch~Last of the Great Places is located in the “Sky Island” region of the Davis Mountains in far West Texas. The entrance to Livermore Ranch is located about 30 miles west of Fort Davis in Jeff Davis County off State Highway 166, otherwise known as the scenic loop, and would generally be considered as part of the southwest slope of the formation.

LOCALE

Fort Davis, situated at the southern base of the Davis Mountains, is recognized as the highest town in Texas. It is the county seat and the namesake of the National Historic Landmark, and offers basic shopping, dining and general essentials found in a small town of 1,000 people. It is quite the tourist destination as well. The city of Marfa, with its vibrant arts community, is about 25 miles southeast of the ranch, while Alpine and Sul Ross State University are 51 miles away. Both Marfa (MRF) and Alpine (ALE) have general aviation airports, and are both busy with resident and destination air traffic. Commercial airliners serve the El Paso International Airport, 175 miles west of the ranch, as well as the Midland/Odessa International Airport, 182 miles northeast. McDonald Observatory is about 20 miles from the ranch, with the famed Big Bend National Park two hours south.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Livermore Ranch~Last of the Great Places is the most special and unique of all the Davis Mountain ranches. 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. In true West Texas fashion, the entrance to the ranch is approximately four miles from HWY 166 and accessed through two neighboring ranches on a well-maintained gravel road. While anecdotally remote by that measure, it is the very destination and anticipation of arrival that makes it special.
