Scenic Properties Near The Quitman Mountains In Hudspeth County


Undeveloped Land Just Over 3 Miles From The Interstate



These parcels are beautiful home sites, and are slightly larger than 5 acres. They are located about 65 miles southeast of El Paso. The properties are about 17 miles southwest of Sierra Blanca, which is the county seat of Hudspeth County. Also they are about 17 miles southeast of Fort Hancock, which has a population of about 1,700. The well known Texas 87 Tiger Truck Stop, with its Mexican restaurant, is just off of Interstate 10 only about a 4 mile drive from these properties.

This is a beautiful underdeveloped area with some of the most incredible views west Texas has to offer. Only about 6 miles to the east is the incredible Quitman Mountain Range which are well known for their beauty. Also enhancing the skyline to the west is the Sierra Amargosa mountain range. These parcels are only a mile or so from the Rio Grande River. About five and a half miles to the south are the remnants of historic Fort Quitman, which was originally established to protect travelers from bandits.

From I-10 just take Ranch Road 34 to FM Road 192.  This property is less than 1/2 mile from FM Road 192.

These parcels are buildable and would be great for an offgrid cabin site. They are sprinkled with pinion, juniper, yucca, mesquite, live oak, and grasses. Quail, dove, mule deer, and rabbits roam the area. All of the Valley Ranch properties have platted road access.

Each of these parcels is 5 acres or larger, which is well over 217,000 square feet. Taxes are currently about $13 per year. There is legally platted access to every lot. You could look into having a water well drilled, but a much cheaper option is to use tank storage and haul water in yourself from Sierra Blanca. When we were in the area cell phone coverage was fine. For electricity solar or wind generation would be great choices or you could use a conventional generator. Sewage would be by septic - - if and when you decide to build. Mobile homes, RV's, and modular homes are allowed.

Hudspeth County is situated in far west Texas between El Paso County to the west and Culberson County to the east. This is a beautiful area.
