Dog Ridge Ranch

Posted on: January 22nd, 2019 by Clayton Leverett

Location: Approximately 22 miles Northwest of Llano, Texas. It is nearest to the tiny Texas communities of Valley Spring, Pontotoc, and Castell, Texas. Its approximately 80 miles from Austin, Texas.

Land: Dog Ridge Ranch sits atop a knoll to the west of an area favorite, Smoothing Iron Mountain. The entire East side of the home faces Smoothing Iron and tremendous views can be had from almost every room.
There is a good mix of brush (predominantly tasajillo, whitebrush, and mesquite), hardwoods (Live and Post Oak mostly), and cleared areas. The soil is sandy to sandy loam allowing the opportunity to plant a wide variety of species from grasses to food plots.

Water: A shallow drainage runs in a SE to NW direction across the ranch and may lend itself to a good location for a pond. Water for the house, barn, and livestock is located at the SE corner of the ranch and was last tested at 30 gallons per minute.

Improvements: The show stopper of the ranch is the home. At approximately 3000 sq. ft. with approximately 1500 sq. ft. of porches, this 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home is comprised of two 1930s/40s Craftsman style homes that were moved onto the property in 2017 and situated on a solid, steel reinforced, concrete beam foundation. The exterior of the home is rock and plaster with a floor to ceiling, wooden windowed, three season breezeway which houses the laundry area along with freezer, hot water heater and storage area. Both sides of the breezeway open onto expansive decks for year-round enjoyment of country life. The roof is colored metal selected to blend in with the surrounding countryside. The house was traditionally positioned on a southeast / northwest axis to take advantage of prevailing summer breezes.
The home boasts new electrical and plumbing systems and was painstakingly renovated over 2017 and 2018. No expense was spared restoring the original longleaf pine floors throughout the home. The double living room, library and breakfast room retain their ship lap siding and the living room, dining room, center entry hall and breezeway have new beaded board ceilings. All rooms, save two of the three bathrooms and kitchen, have beautiful crown molding. The house was originally built as an all wood home meaning that under the drywall walls you will find ship lap wooden walls.
The home offers views from each room with forty-seven of fifty-three windows replaced with energy saving vinyl windows. Care was taken to preserve both the interior and exterior wooden trim that surrounds the new windows to maintain the appearance of the original cased windows. Windows in the double living room (nine) are double hung while the remainder single hung. Six windows were intentionally left as original wooden windows and sealed and closed at various entrance points to the home to remind visitors, and the owner, of the authenticity and craftsmanship of the era.

There are three full baths and three bedrooms with a possible fourth bedroom if the library were used as a bedroom. Two of the three bathrooms offer restored claw-foot tubs and two of the three bathrooms have floor to ceiling tiled, step in, wall to wall showers. The master bath shower room exits to a side porch / entry that serves as a glorified mud room so as not to track through the home after a hard days work on the property. Each wing of the home has its own independent central electric heat pump HVAC as well as a freestanding, vent less, gas fireplace should electrical service go down during the odd ice storm.
Three bedrooms, two baths and a small television room are in the private bedroom wing while the public wing boasts a large center entry hall, large dining room, double living room, library / den and a two-room kitchen and a breakfast area with original built-in buffet with mirrored back splash. One of the living rooms could easily be used as a dining room if a separate den area were desired utilizing the current, formal dining room.
The kitchen offers a farmhouse sink, integrated Kitchen Aid stainless steel dishwasher, butcher block counter tops and easy close drawer storage in the central island. The cooking alcove is comprised of a Samsung continuous, cast iron grate, propane gas cook top and a built-in Frigidaire electric oven flanked by cabinets with pull out racks for storing cookware. Cabinet to ceiling beveled subway tiles adorn and protect the walls of the cooking alcove and back splash between sink and wall cabinets.
Electric service to the house is underground and each wing of the home has its own 200 amps service for a total of 400 amps of supplied service to the residence. The bedroom wing shares its 200 amps service with the barn. All electrical service to the house and barn is buried from the main service lines provided by Central Texas Electric Cooperative (CTEC).
The property has a 250 gallon propane tank located between the barn and north side of the house. New septic service was installed in 2017 and runs from the back of the house to the tank and drain fields located south of the home.
Situated to the north of the residence is a concrete slab, all steel metal barn. The structure, (while suffering from lack of organization due to the home construction project) provides 2400 square feet of open storage. Side walls are ten feet in height and the trusses were welded on site and offer twelve feet of height down the length of the building. There are three operable windows for air circulation and three lockable, roll up doors. Two of the doors are eight feet high while the third is ten feet. There is also one keyed pass through entry door.
Electrical supply to the barn is a 200 amp service shared with the bedroom wing of the house and minimal wiring has been completed within the barn. There are more than sixty running feet of combined shelving and worktop space installed and ready for your own farm and ranch projects.
The barn is fully guttered and one half of the roof area feeds two 2500 gallon rain collection tanks. One of the tanks has been plumbed to supply two remote spigots. Spigots from rain catchment are sprayed in orange neon paint to indicate non-potable water while potable water spigots are sprayed blue to avoid confusion. There are numerous spigots located a short distance from the house so as to provide ready watering supply to the three rows of wine grapes, raised asparagus bed and fruit trees.
The water line running from the well to the residence has numerous buried supply boxes providing access to below ground spigots and tie-ins for additional remote water runs should irrigation or supplemental pond water be desired on the property. There are currently three, man-made steel wildlife watering structures on the property in addition to the three seasonal ponds. There are also two old concrete and plaster watering structures awaiting restoration near the old home site at inside the south gated entrance.

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.

department has performed research in the canyon floor discovering several desirable plant
species previously unknown to be in the region.

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.

Cabin, shop/barn(as seen in video) with septic, 60gpm water well, and approximately 100 additional acres can be purchased. Inquire with listing broker for more details.
