Lake Medina Deep Water Showplace

Posted on: July 31st, 2018 by Lamb Jerrett

Lake Medina – Deep Water – Unrestricted Development Opportunity

This spectacular piece of property is located along the southern line of Lake Medina in Medina County and only minutes from San Antonio. The property is a combination of a single 2.29 Acre lot in the Brandon's Cove Subdivision and 5.901 Unrestricted Acres with ownership below the 1084-foot elevation (rare opportunity).

The uniqueness of this property is showcased in the majestic bluff's along the more than 1,500-feet of clear Lake Medina waterfront. The property lies within the Cove dubbed as Devils Kitchen and Brandon Cove. Access to the lake and cove are provided by a beautiful trail of solid concrete steps/stairways/landings, which meander through a flora/fauna seemingly worlds away from the Hill Country backdrop. This walkway system was originally installed as part of a proposed recreational/lodging development. Long since abandoned, the infrastructure remains and is poised for a developer to enhance or for an end-user to build the home of a lifetime.

The land forming the peninsula has a level grade and large building envelope along its top ridge and could serve as a beautiful canvas for a home, which would take-in the views and backdrop of Lake Medina.

The property has an existing water well and electricity is on-site. There is an older dwelling on the property, which has no contributory value and there is presumed to be an existing Septic System (condition unknown).

Property like this is not only rare, but largely unavailable in Texas. The size and water frontage alone are rare for the Texas Hill Country on lakes as pristine as Lake Medina. After sustaining a terrible loss in lake levels over the last 10-years, Lake Medina has recovered and no longer is being arbitrarily drained. Various litigation has been brought against the Bexar, Medina, Atiscosa (BMA) organization due to the non-supported release of waters from Lake Medina. This litigation has served to afford a voice to support a minimal release and a sustained water level for the lake.

Located along a very private access (entering through the gated Brandon Cove Subdivision), the property enjoys limited exposure from road traffic, giving it the solitude afforded by few similar tracts in the Texas Hill Country. The single-lot in the Brandon Cove Subdivision affords additional (largely non-buildable) land and water-front areas just waiting to be explored.

If a piece of heaven is what you are looking for to construct your masterpiece, then you have found your site. Additionally, if a commercial lodging/recreational opportunity is what you are seeking, bring your ideas and put them to work on this one-of-a-kind location. Give us a call for your private tour, but bring your walking shoes and have your camera ready to experience something truly unique.
