Ranch owned by Texas oil royalty hits the market for $30 million. See what


A ginormous ranch owned by a prominent oil family has landed on the real estate market in the Lone Star State — but it costs a very shiny penny.

The O | W Ranch, a 6,041-acre property with a total of six homes and diverse game, has listed for $29.95 million in the Bee and San Patricio counties.

The ranch is owned by the Killam family, whose patriarch, O.W. Killam, started a Texas oil boom in the early 1920s when geologists originally thought the land in that specific part of the country lacked oil because the formations “were too young.” Killam proved them wrong and had produced more than a hundred million barrels by the 1950’s, the Killam family website says.

Now, the owners are ready to hand over the ranch to a new generation and are highlighting many of its appealing aspects.

“This ranch boasts a well-established infrastructure that supports diverse operations including hunting, cattle, horse, and farming activities,” the listing on Hall and Hall says.

“Key amenities at the headquarters include cattle handling facilities, breeding pens, horse stables with eight stalls, tack room, and a round pen. The lodge itself is a standout, equipped with a commercial kitchen, butler’s pantry, and can accommodate up to 20+ people.”

Other features, per the listing, include:

Wildlife includes:

Whitetail deer

Rio Grande turkey

Feral hogs



San Patricio and Bee county are just north of Corpus Christi.

The listing is held by Jay Leyendecker.
