Portilla Ranch 4000 Acres in San Patricio County
COUNTY:San Patricio County AREA:Coastal Prairie

Our team at Mark Hubbard Ranch Properties is honored to have the opportunity to offer you the Portilla Ranch. The Portilla Ranch is a part of the once sprawling landholdings of colonizer Felipe Roque de la Portilla Colmenero, and later, the homesite of heirs John Welder and wife Dolores Power, Daughter of Col. James Power signer of Declaration of Independence of Texas. The neighboring property to the East of this ranch is the Rob and Bessie Welder Wildlife Foundation, the largest privately endowed wildlife refuge in the world.


Spanning approximately 4000 acres of beautiful coastal plains, the Portilla Ranch features giant live oaks, sprawling grasslands, and excellent wildlife habitat. Located two miles North of Sinton, the ranch has over five miles of frontage along the East side of Hwy. 77, just a two-hour drive from Houston.


The headquarters are located in the North end of the ranch are accessed by asphalt paved roads from the highway to the house. Structural improvements include a very functional and complete headquarters with a comfortable, 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath ranch-style home with approximately 2100 square feet of living area, separate living quarters, two enclosed barns, sheds, and a good set of cattle pens with a covered working area.


The Portilla Ranch is abundantly improved with very good quality galvanized perimeter fencing and cross fencing designed to accommodate rotational grazing of cattle and is very functional as such. The ranch is very well watered with multiple water wells and water piped to all pastures.


The biggest water feature on the ranch is “Hughes Lake”, a man-made impoundment approximately 20 acres in size which has been designed, sculpted, and managed to produce great bass fishing and recreation. The lake is maintained by well water.


Its location along the Gulf Coast Plains makes this ranch a hunter’s paradise. White-tailed deer, Javelina, Rio Grande turkey, feral hogs, Bob White quail, and white-winged and mourning dove are abundant, and a vast variety of waterfowl frequent the ranch. You would be hard-pressed to locate a low-fenced hunting ranch with a greater variety of game animals and birds.


This ranch is exclusively offered by Mark Hubbard Ranch Properties. Please contact one of our team members to schedule a showing. Showings by appointment only and only to qualified buyers.


As previously mentioned, the Welder Wildlife Refuge is the primary neighbor to the East. Access to the refuge is along an easement granted to the foundation which crosses the Northern end of Portilla Ranch. The easement road is owned by Portilla Ranch. It should be noted that a portion of the ranch is encumbered by a conservation easement, 618 acres of the ranch including the headquarters and Hughes Lake are not included in such easement.
