Canyon Creek Ranch
Location: Canyon Creek Ranch is located approximately one hour from Austin and San Antonio
and four hours from both Houston and Dallas. The quaint village of Wimberley is 15 minutes
away with nice shopping and dining. The property is in Hays County and less than 1 mile from
the Comal County line.
Description: The ranch begins with open pasture land that transitions off the Blanco River
bottom into rocky escarpments and mesas full of Texas red oak, cherry, walnut, cedar elms and
live oaks that have been estimated to be over 300 years old. From atop the Devil’s Backbone
and Ranch Road 32 some ten miles away, across the cedar hills it is possible to see the open
grass fields and shiny tin roof of the horse barn on Canyon Creek Ranch. It is a beautiful piece of
the Texas Hill Country, diverse in many ways. A deep limestone canyon cuts through the ranch
and most of the year is full of clear and cold spring water.
Water: Honey Creek is located on the ranch (3300 of creek frontage). Running in the SW
pasture, Honey Creek is a strong-flowing creek that empties into the Blanco River and at the time
of this writing (March, 2018) has a steady flow. There are several low-flowing springs scattered
throughout the ranch. Two stocked ponds on the property make for great fishing, duck hunting,
swimming, or relaxation. The larger pond is supplemented from one of the 20+ gallon per
minute wells on the ranch. The 235 acre ranch is over one of Texas major aquifers, the Trinity
Aquifer, and the springs more than likely emanate from it. There are 4 water wells on the
property ranging from 20 -30 gallons per minute. Well logs available upon request.
Access: There are 2 access points to Canyon Creek Ranch. Both are directly off of Fischer Store
Road. The main entrance is through an electric gate.
Improvements: There are 3 main structures on the ranch that are in excellent condition.
Nearest the entrance of the ranch is the guesthouse; a 2 story, 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath, screened
porch, bonus room that could be converted into a bedroom, and a detached garage with walk-in game freezer. Secondly, the cabin
contains a large bedroom, bath, complete kitchen, living room and screened porch. Attached is
a party pavilion with roll up doors on both sides allowing the Hill Country breeze to move
through. Finally, a 4 stall, first class horse barn with 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment with full
kitchen for guests or ranch/horse hands. There is also an office, a garden room with sink, and
separate bathroom in the horse barn. On top of the canyon there is a viewing deck and seating
area with a new well and electricity.
Wildlife: Under careful supervision of wildlife biologists since 1994, the ranch has nearly every
animal and bird species known in central Texas. Large flocks of wild turkey, mature whitetail
deer, dove, waterfowl, red fox/grey fox, jackrabbits, ring-tail cats, and occasional feral pigs can
be found. There are painted buntings and Eastern blue birds around the guesthouse to watch
and various birds of prey in the canyon. Over the years a pair of bald eagles comes to stay, likely
visiting from the Highland Lakes region up north. The University of Texas at Austin Biology
department has performed research in the canyon floor discovering several desirable plant
species previously unknown to be in the region.
Price: $4,600,000. 2017 Wildlife exempt taxes were $5,500.
