Diamond Eagle Ranch straddles the northwest summit and shoulder of the Eagle Mountains, nine miles south of I-10 as the interstate hugs the U.S. border en route to El Paso, Texas. The 10,322-acre ranch is accessed by a private well-maintained gravel road by deeded easement and is a relatively quick 1.5 hours from El Paso International Airport. Large well-established landowner neighbors, all with low fences and significant game-management programs, make Diamond Eagle the perfect hunting and recreation property.
The Diamond Eagle Ranch sale, which hit the market on October 26, offers a turnkey opportunity to purchase a world-class hunting ranch with extreme privacy complemented by excellent access. Given its remote and unique location, the ranch offers habitat and range for a diverse array of wildlife, from big mule deer and predators like mountain lion and bobcat to countless songbirds, hummingbirds and numerous species of reptiles and invertebrates.
The Eagles are part of a chain of sky island mountains that stretch from New Mexico through West Texas and into Old Mexico. With the Quitman Mountains to the west, Sierra Blanca Mountain to the north, and the Diablos Mountains to the northeast, the Eagles are a mountain island in a desert sea, creating unique high-elevation habitats and stunning landscapes and views.
This high Chihuahuan Desert ranch has elevations ranging from 4,200 feet to 6,400 feet in a landscape that roils between canyons, peaks, valleys, rolling flats and arroyos. The Rio Grande valley to the south and west, with the mountains of Mexico beyond, creates a series of distinctive rocky outcrops, one of which, NT Mountain, towers over the ranch. As you’d expect, sunrises and sunsets here are nothing short of spectacular, with vistas stretching off into the distance for hundreds of miles.
Hudspeth County is the second least-populated county in the state, so the lifestyle out here is rugged, remote and reliant on self-sufficiency. The reward, of course, is access to some of the most unspoiled (if demanding) backcountry in the lower 48 and a place where the night sky twinkles with a billion stars and the sound of silence is like nothing you’ve ever heard.
