Southwest Sunsites in Texas

Great Ranch Parcels In Big Beautiful West Texas

 

Beautiful Mountain Views In Culberson County

 

These are gorgeous 5 to 10 acre ranch / homesites located in the Southwest Sunsites Plan Of Ranches in Culberson County, Texas. They are east of Van Horn. Although they offer privacy, they are easily accessible from Exit 153 on Highway I-10 or from FM Road 2185.

These parcels are about 24 miles south from Blue Origin. This is the private spaceport built by Jeff Bezos of Amazon.com with the intention of allowing tourists to travel by rocket to outer space. Their BE-4 rocket engine uses liquified natural gas, which avoids the black carbon pollution caused by the kerosene most other rocket engines use. As space tourist and commercial space deliveries ramp up at Blue Origin it is easy to imagine what will happen to local real estate values.

Van Horn is about 120 miles east of El Paso and sits right on Interstate 10. It is a beautiful town with 18 restaurants, 17 motels, churches, a library, hospital, 2 museums, 4 RV parks, campground, and a full array of stores. It also has its own small convention center and visitors bureau. The city park offers picnic areas, a swimming pool, a playground, and basketball courts. There are tennis courts at the high school. There is a County Airport at Van Horn and even the Mountain View Golf Course. You can visit the movie sets for Lonesome Dove, Dead Man's Walk, and Blue Sky. There is a renovated 1944 Union Pacific caboose. Best of all there is basically no pollution and no crime here.

Culberson County covers 3,815 square miles. You will be in the southern section of the county and not too far from the Rio Grande River. Elevation runs from 3,000 feet up to the highest point in the county and the state, Guadalupe Peak at 8,751 feet. In fact 7 of the 8 highest mountains in Texas are in Culberson County, you can understand why the views are so impressive.

The climate is mild and dry, with an average minimum temperature of 30 degrees in January and an average maximum of 94 degrees in July. The growing season is 224 days per year, and the average annual rainfall is 10 inches.

Culberson County is in the Rio Grande basin where the soil is primarily made up of clay, sandy loam, and sand. Vegetation consists of scrub brush, grasses, cacti, creosote bush, post oak, chaparral, oak, juniper, mesquite, yucca, and agave.

From these properties in the Southwest Sunsites Ranches you will see incredible mountain views in almost every direction. You will see beautiful sunsets and sunrises. And there is something to do here for everyone. For the hunter there are big horn sheep, mule deer, javalina, antelope, quail, and dove. You are only a short distance to the Rio Grande River for water sports. Within an easy drive is Guadalupe Mountains National Park, Carlsbad Caverns, Big Bend National Park, and several other parks and points of interest.

There are power and phone in the area and at the I-10 exit, but not to these parcels yet. Some of these parcels are close enough to power lines that you might want to call the electric utility for information, but solar would be a good choice in this area. Water would be by well or storage. We are told water wells in the area are normally 500 to 700 feet deep and are rated "AAA" (excellent water). A very economical solution though would be to haul water or have it hauled in from Van Horn. Sewage would be by septic - if and when you build. Cell phones work almost everywhere. There are no restrictions and mobile homes, modular homes, and RVs are all allowed. There are no time limits on when to build, and there is no requirement that you build at all. There are no association fees. You can also camp on your property when you visit the area. You are allowed to enjoy your property, and you may build or leave it as is for investment.
