Fossil Hill Ranch

Posted on: April 17th, 2018 by James Blake


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 $3,808,800 or $7,200/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.

Cherokee Ranch

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.

San Saba River Ranch

Posted on: August 15th, 2017 by Clayton Leverett

Location: Approximately 2 hours from San Antonio, Texas; 2 hours from Austin, Texas; 20 minutes from Mason, Texas; 20 minutes from Menard, Texas; 25 minutes to Brady, Texas

Land: Gently rolling land spotted with Live and Post Oaks, as well as a few native pecan tress along the river. A spectacular grove of trees in the NE quadrant along the river includes Oaks, Giant Elms, and native Pecans. A fair amount of brushy shrubs (Juniper, Whitebrush, prickly pear, and some Mesquite) are scattered about creating just enough habitat for the local wildlife to thrive.

Wildlife: An abnormally large population of Rio Grande turkey call this area home. They roost up and down the river and they can be heard often throughout the day. Feral hogs, Whitetail deer, quail, Jackrabbits, and an array of varmints abound as well.

Water: Approximately 6500' of the famed San Saba River, often referred to as one of Texas' best kept secrets. It's known for its clarity and limestone-lined bottom. From long, deep pools to shallow ripples and falls this river is sure to impress. Limestone cliff faces along the river are dramatic and conjure up the days when cowboys and Indians were roaming the territory.

Improvements: Electricity is not on property but is available and there are currently no water wells (more information can be found on local underground water through the Menard County Underground Water District).

Access: Access is off of FM1311.
