Location:

This premium “live water” ranch is located at the end of a paved, private easement road about one mile South of FM 150 E, near the intersection of FM 150 and FM 3237.  It is ideally situated between two major cities both within an hour.  San Antonio (major airport, home to major sports franchises, employment, shopping, restaurants, hotels) is located to the Southwest and Austin (State Capitol, University of Texas, night life, hotels, shopping, international airport) is located to the Northeast.  Located nearby are the cities of Wimberley to the Southwest just 9 minutes away, Kyle located 9 minutes away to the Southeast and Dripping Springs to the North only 17 minutes.  Major thoroughfares to the property include FM 150 and FM 3237.

 

Water:

The chief signature of this ranch is the 2,000+ feet of live water frontage to the centerline of the Blanco River.  Pristine and clear flowing, the spring colored chilled water flows over sculpted limestone beds and stair-stepped ledges.  There are deep pockets for swimming and possibilities for fishing.  Bordering both sides of the river are bald cypress trees and live oaks.  The river frontage has been carefully cleared leaving the hardwoods to cast shade for picnics and leisure afternoons.  There is a bluff bordering most of the river frontage with multiple clear views of the sparkling water.  One water well serves the ranch and is located toward the middle of the ranch.

 

Land:

The ranch contains 592.91 acres and is accessed via a mile long gated and asphalt paved easement road from FM 150 E located to the North.  There are two solar powered gates, one at the initial point of access at FM 150 E and the second at the point of entry to the ranch.  The shape of the ranch is rectangular.

A perfect blend of both open fields (50%) and heavily treed (50%) Hill County land, Blanco River Ranch offers a two for one investment.  Elevations range from 700 feet to the South boundary line along the Blanco River to 990 feet towards the middle of the property.  A wet weather creek is located at the Northwest corner of the ranch and a deep private draw is located along the Southwest property line.  The property has standard perimeter fencing (four foot) on three sides and is in average condition.

There have been ample sightings of wildlife including whitetail deer, hogs, dove, turkey and a large population of song birds.  Fishing is widely available throughout the entire river frontage where perch, catfish and bass can be caught.

A bluff overlooks the pristine Blanco River at the South end of the ranch.  Recent clearing reveals scenic views of the river.  A viewing deck overlooking the Blanco River was constructed towering some 30′+ feet upward and away from the bluff.  The deck offers unobstructed views both upstream and downstream of the Blanco River.

 

Improvements:

A custom built cottage strategically located along the Blanco River allowing generous views both up and down the river completed in 2013.  The exterior of the house has a mountain lodge appearance featuring seamless metal roofing.  Oversized Anderson windows scenically invite the outdoors inside.  The attached deck perches out from the cottage bringing the river inward.  The cottage contains approximately 450 square feet and features a granite counter topped kitchen, ample sized tile shower, one bathroom and a single bedroom (wooden floor) with sitting area and gas fireplace.  A 5,000 gallon water reservoir serves the improvements.

Two existing improvements are included featuring a moderate sized corrugated metal sided barn and a small shed.

Roads:

There are approximately three miles of good ‘asphalt paved’ roadways serving the ranch.  Two parallel roads being in the middle the property lead to the bluff.  Other paved roads allow access to main parts of the ranch.

 

Summary:

If you desire a premium live-water ranch with ultimate privacy, then come look at this Hill Country gem.  Located within an hour of Austin and San Antonio with short distances to multiple communities, you owe it to yourself to take a look.
