Fossil Hill Ranch

Posted on: April 17th, 2018 by James Blake

FOSSIL HILL RANCH

Description: AMAZING VIEWS FOR MILES! A rolling topography of Live Oak, Spanish Oak, and Juniper provide multiple 1,400 foot elevations with some distant views of Canyon Lake. These spectacular elevations offer panoramic building sites for a perfect recreational ranch retreat.
Fossil Hill Ranch is easily accessed with paved county road to the main entrance gate off of FM 306. Once inside the gate a network of caliche roads have been maintained to provide great access throughout the ranch. Caliche is abundant on the ranch and could be sourced for additional road development. The ranch has four cleared pastures that would make ideal food plots for wildlife enrichment. Minimal land clearing has occurred on the ranch leaving a blank canvas for improvement opportunities. Fossil Hill Ranch is bordered on three sides by large acreage properties and bordered on the south and southeast corner by Mystic Shores at Canyon Lake Subdivision.

Location: Fossil Hill Ranch is located in both Blanco and Comal Counties. Ideally situated nine miles from the intersection of Highway 281 and Farm-To-Market 306. Fossil Hill Ranch is 16 miles from Canyon City (Canyon Lake) and 20 miles from the city of Blanco with both cities offering restaurants, shopping, and supplies. For convenient access to the out of town owner Fossil Hill Ranch is located 40 miles to the San Antonio International Airport.
Water: Fossil Hill Ranch has a beautiful small spring-fed pond that serves as a great water resource for wildlife.The flow rate and seasonality of the spring is unknown. In addition, the ranch features wet weather creeks and great opportunity for surface water development. Groundwater in the area is excellent with the ranch currently having one working well with an electric submersible pump providing water for livestock. The second well on the ranch is no longer in service and it is unknown the scope of work to bring the well into service.

Access: Primary access to Fossil Hill Ranch is via FM 306 and approximately 4 miles down Mystic Breeze to the gated entrance.

Improvements: An old hunting lodge, barn, working pens, and corral exists on the property, but serve only as reminders of the past.
Financial/Title: Listing price is $4,496,500 or $8,500/acre. A survey was conducted on Fossil Hill Ranch in 2015. Electricity is provided by Pedernales Electric Cooperative (PEC). Fossil Hill Ranch is located in the Comal ISD, and estimated ag-exempt taxes are $800 per year.

100% of mineral rights transfer.

Canyon Creek Ranch

Posted on: April 12th, 2018 by Bob Quigley

Canyon Creek Ranch

***Please watch the Virtual Tour Video for drone video footage***

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: $5,400,000. 2017 Wildlife exempt taxes were $5,500.

Bailey Branch Ranch

Posted on: August 15th, 2017 by Clayton Leverett

2 miles South of Llano, Texas off paved County Road 312, this is becoming THE place to be in Llano County. 70 miles from Austin and 100 miles from San Antonio.
Gentle land with loamy soil would be an ideal home for horses or livestock. The wet weather creek provides the new owner with an opportunity to create a pond or lake. Electricity is on the property and two wells are served by solar-powered submersible pumps.

Cherokee Ranch

Posted on: August 15th, 2017 by Clayton Leverett

Gently sloping land with 90% of the property being in productive, loamy soil. Two water wells of unknown production, powered by electric submersible pumps are in place and are operational at this time. Electricity, from Central Texas Electric Coop, is located on the property. The owners currently run cattle and maintain their ag exempt tax status. The ranch is believed to be situated above the Hickory aquifer so excellent groundwater is a very good possibility. More information on the groundwater status can be obtained from the Hickory Underground Water District.
Subdividing is possible.

Cedar Mountain Ranch II

Posted on: August 15th, 2017 by Clayton Leverett

Location: Cedar Mountain Ranch II is located 25 miles South of Llano, Texas and 22 miles North of Fredericksburg, Texas off of the historic and scenic Willow City Loop.

Description: Rough and raw are the best adjectives for the Cedar Mountain Ranch. A large portion of the ranch is located on top of Cedar Mountain. With 360 in elevation changes, views to the South and East of the ranch are nothing short of extraordinary. Approximately 1/2 of CMR II lies in Llano County with the other half being in Gillespie County.

The road system is adequate and provides a good overview of what the ranch has to offer.

LCRA has a transmission easement across and through the ranch going East/West. It is a large transmission line, but with the terrain, topography, and vegetation, it isnt overly obnoxious.

A large portion of CMR has dense cover, primarily Juniper, Persimmon, and Bee Brush. Other than that, your standard mix of hardwoods includes Post Oaks, Live Oaks, and a smattering of Red Oaks and Cedar Elms.

Water: There are several lowflowing springs scattered about the ranch. In the Northeast quadrant of the ranch, a long, deep canyon that is a little over a mile long, contains multiple springs and normally is a constant flowing unnamed creek. The photos, taken in late June 2015, show some of its potential. The owners, as well as neighboring ranchers, have said that the springs that feed into the creek are strong and almost never stop flowing. The location of CMR is directly over one of Texas minor aquifers, the Hickory Aquifer, and the springs more than likely emanate from it.

Access: Access is via the Willow CityClick Road,a public road, which dead ends into private property a short distance from CMRII.

Improvements: A water well is in the Southwest corner of the ranch. It has a solarpowered submersible pump and the original well log states that it yielded 15 gallons per minute at the time it was drilled. There is an old hunting cabin located at the Northeast quadrant of the ranch. Residential electricity (from Central Texas Electric Coop) comes onto the property near the cabin.

Price: $2,375,000/or $4,750/acre. 2016 agexempt taxes were $480. Additional acreage (863 acres +/) may be available that includes a wellappointed cabin, barn, frontage on Cutoff Creek, and road frontage along the Willow City Loop.

Cedar Mountain Ranch

Posted on: August 15th, 2017 by Clayton Leverett

Location: Cedar Mountain Ranch is located 25 miles South of Llano, Texas and 22 miles North of Fredericksburg, Texas off of the historic and scenic Willow City Loop.

Description: Rough and raw are the best adjectives for the Cedar Mountain Ranch. A large portion of the ranch is located on top of Cedar Mountain. With approximately 360 feet in elevation changes, views to the South and East of the ranch are nothing short of extraordinary. Almost 1/3 of CMR lies in Llano County with the remainder being in Gillespie County.

The road system is adequate and provides a good overview of what the ranch has to offer. A large portion of CMR is densely covered, primarily in Juniper, Persimmon, and Bee Brush. Other than that, your standard mix of hardwoods includes Post Oaks, Live Oaks, and a smattering of Red Oaks and Cedar Elms. Cedar Mountain Ranch also has one of the highest concentrations of Mountain Laurel that I've seen on a single property in a long time. The Lower Colorado River Authority has a transmission easement and the line runs East/West through the ranch.

Water: In the Northeast quadrant of the ranch, a long, deep canyon, a little over a mile long, contains multiple springs and normally is a constant flowing unnamed creek. The photos, taken in late June 2015, show some of its potential. The owners, as well as neighboring ranchers, have said that the springs that feed into the creek are strong and almost never stop flowing. The location of CMR is directly over one of Texas minor aquifers, the Hickory Aquifer, and the springs more than likely emanate from it.

Access: There are three access points to public roads. Two of the access points are directly off of the Willow City Loop (over 5000 of Loop frontage) and the other is off of the Willow CityClick Road, which dead ends into private property a short distance from CMR.

Improvements: There is an old hunting shack located at the Northeast quadrant of the ranch. Residential electricity (from Central Texas Electric Coop) comes onto the property near the cabin.

A water well, near the center of the property, contains a solar-powered pump logged at 30gpm to supply water for livestock and wildlife.

KJC Ranch

Posted on: June 27th, 2017 by Jordan Smrekar

Location: The KJC Ranch is located in McCulloch county approximately 20 miles North of Brady, Texas. It is accessed off of County Road 300 near Lohn, Texas.

Description: The KJC is a highly improved, turn-key operation on some of the most diverse property in McCulloch county. Numerous species of exotics can be found roaming the varying terrain of the ranch. From lush food plots to dense cover and winding creeks, the 671 +/- high fenced acres are perfect for making memories chasing after all types of game. Wildlife on the ranch includes wildebeest, scimitar oryx, barashinga, red deer, mouflon, red sheep, axis, blackbuck, ibex, whitetail, turkey, and dove. Another highlight feature of the property is the water. A 3000 ft. artesian well supplies the entire ranch with an unwavering supply of fresh, clean water. In addition to servicing the main home, the artesian flow from the well strategically travels to the three largest bodies of water on the ranch. There are few ranches in the area that have a water source like this in private hands. In the center of the ranch, the topography changes quickly and provides a scenic viewpoint to the food plots and ponds below. All aspects of grooming a property to maintain a healthy herd of wildlife have been taken into account. There are also breeding pens, a handling facility, and catch pens to assist in managing the genetics. A comfortable five bedroom home (approx. 3600') supplies more than adequate housing for a large number of hunters and guests to relax. There is also a fairly new modular home nearby that was purchased in 2015. The barn comes equipped with tractors, trailers, game coolers, and a cleaning area. This ranch has been set up right for hunting and is ready to be enjoyed.

Water: The main source of water is the 3000 artesian well in the center of the ranch that was drilled through 400 ft. of the Hickory Aquifer formation. According to the owner, the well was tested during the drought in 2011 and still provided 50-60 gpm when operating with the pump. However, the pump is rarely used as water flows out of the well naturally at a rate of approximately 25 gpm. There are also three good sized ponds that are supplied by the well and stay mostly full year round. The East Fork of Cow Creek is located on the ranch and runs through a good portion of the property. There are generally small holding pools of water scattered throughout the creek.

Improvements: The main house, approximately 3600 sq. ft., is a comfortable 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath home that is currently being used as a hunting lodge. The bedrooms are all furnished with multiple beds, providing the ability to sleep a large number of guests. The master bedroom is located away from the rest of the rooms and has its own private bath. The kitchen, living room, and dining room are all located in the center of the home. The backyard has an above ground pool along with a fire pit and outdoor grilling area. Just a short distance from the main house is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath modular home that was purchased in 2015 and is currently occupied by the ranch manager. The property also has a metal building to store all types of equipment, tools, and trailers. A full list of negotiable assets is available upon request.

Price: $2,490,000 or $3,708/acre. 2016 ag-exempt taxes were approximately $5346.
