At over 200 acres, Leona Ranch is easily accessible with its 4,250 foot asphalt runway and 1.5 miles of private road frontage. Teeming with whitetail deer, aoudad, and other wildlife, the land is ideal for the recreational ranch buyer. The majority of the property overlooks a deep canyon which offers beautiful panoramic views and challenging hiking trails.
Leona Ranch is a one-of-a-kind Texas Hill Country Ranch with an amazing history. Once the headquarters to a larger 9,000 acre ranch, the sprawling 5,500 square foot stone house was the residence of none other than John Wayne while he directed and filmed the legendary movie, The Alamo in nearby Bracketville in 1959. After filming ended, Wayne remained a frequent guest to Leona Ranch; along with other notable figures such as President Lyndon Johnson, Raquel Welch, and many others.
While still in need of a little TLC, the 9 bedroom, 7 bath lodge has a rustic elegance that is seldom found in modern-built homes. Brimming with character and charm, the house sits adjacent to the private runway with a stone-wall drive leading to it.
