Pendleton Point Ranch

Posted on: April 23rd, 2018 by Brady Anders

OVERVIEW
Pendleton Point Ranch lies in the scenic, rolling terrain of northern Blanco County centrally located between Fredericksburg, Austin, and San Antonio. The crown jewels of this ranch are the commanding, 360 degree panoramic views of the gorgeous Texas Hill Country offered by its majestic hills. Originally a component of the Glen Grote Ranch, this property has been completely restored and improved over the last two years with the creation of beautiful water features and extensive habitat improvements.

LOCATION & ACCESS
Charming Fredericksburg (great restaurants, music venues, shopping, hospital, supplies) is a scenic 30-minute drive from the front gate. Central Austin is a 50-minute drive via US-281 & TX-71 and San Antonio is 1.5 hours away via US-281. The ranch sits along the north line of RR 1323 in Blanco County with 5,700' or 1.08 miles of road frontage.

The area is comprised of larger-sized recreational and ranching tracts with no development properties in sight. The property is surrounded by large ranches, the most prominent being the West Ranch at 8,624 ac along the northern boundary. The West Ranch is the largest, privately-owned contiguous ranch in Blanco County. Along the west boundary lies Grote family property which totals 634 ac and along the east boundary lies Sultemeier country totaling 1,813 ac. Across RR 1323 to the south lies a 778-ac high-fenced recreational hunting ranch.

WATER
Primary Ponds
At the heart of this ranch is a ribbon of continuous water, 0.35 miles long, featuring two prominent impoundments along the primary creek that runs north-south through the property. The first pond is 2.00 ac in size, is 40' deep at full pool, and is fed by a natural, year-round spring. The second pond was enlarged, deepened, and a cascading, granite & sandstone-rock overflow was added in the center of the dam. This pond is approximately 1.10 ac in size and is 18' deep at full pool. Three intermediate-sized pools that are 10-12' deep which water can flow through, were also constructed and connect the first and second ponds. Both primary ponds have been sealed with 2-3' of clay and each dam was constructed with a 10-12' wide clay core.

Seasonal Creeks & Secondary Ponds
In addition to the primary creek where the water features lie, there are two other seasonal creeks which traverse the property. In the SW quad of the ranch, a sandstone-lined seasonal creek runs west-east for approximately 3,560'. Roughly in the middle of this drainage, a small 0.50 ac pond was constructed in a private, secluded area.

The other seasonal creek lies in the SE quad of the ranch and runs for roughly 2,580'. This drainage system originates on Sultemeier country to the east and extends all the way to the south property boundary. Although no water impoundments have been constructed along this drainage, multiple pools of water can be found during wet periods at various points along the way. There is potential to create additional water features along either of these seasonal creeks.
There is also a small stock pond that sits below Pendleton Point that catches water seeping out of the hill during periods when the water table is at capacity.

Water Wells
A new water well, located in the NW quad of the ranch near Pendleton Point was drilled in June 2017. The well was drilled to a depth of 423', hitting water at 262' with a yield of 25 GPM. Given the high elevation of the well head, water could be gravity fed to anywhere on the property.
There is also an existing windmill well that sits in the center of the ranch. According to information etched into the concrete pad at the wellhead, the well was drilled on May 4, 1956, is 100' deep, reaches water at 55', and produces 5 GPM. The mechanics of the windmill have been refurbished and are in good working order.

LAND & WILDLIFE
Pendleton Point Ranch exemplifies what a well-managed, diverse Texas Hill Country ranch should be. From the south boundary to roughly the middle of the property, the habitat consists of a slowly rising Post Oak Savannah, interspersed with Post Oak, Live Oak, Elm, and numerous natural openings. With deep, granite-based sandy loam soils, these openings would be ideal for the addition of seasonal food plots for the deer herd and other wildlife.

The mid-section of the ranch, where the water features lie is a beautiful valley, dotted with Live Oak, Texas Persimmon, and native grasses, tucked below the two towering hills that sit on the north end of the property. The owner has carefully groomed the areas around the water creating a private, park-like feel.
The upper-section of the ranch is dominated by two impressive hills that provide beautiful views of the valley and water below. Pendleton Point, which sits in the NW corner area of the property, is an ideal spot for a pergola with a fire pit to enjoy sunsets and panoramic views. The NE quad of the ranch, with its Spanish Oak and Ashe Juniper dotted hills, has been largely left untouched, except for a few new UTV trails. The owner intentionally left this area in its natural state to provide a sanctuary area for wildlife. The elevation ranges from a low of 1,450' along the south boundary to 1,780' at the summit of Pendleton Point.

The ranch hosts a robust white-tailed deer herd that has been lightly hunted over the last three years. The property has also been supplemented with Axis Deer (3 bucks & 7 does), Blackbuck Antelope (3 bucks & 15 does), and Aoudad Sheep (2 rams & 7 ewes).

IMPROVEMENTS
Fencing, Gates, & Power
The entirety of the ranchs boundary is high-fenced (8') and is less than 1-year old. Corners, entrances, and low-water crossings are constructed of 3 & 4" steel pipe. The front gate providing access from RR 1323 is electric with a combination keypad for security. There is an additional gate providing access to RR 1323 at the SW corner of the ranch that is not electric. Power provided by Pedernales Electric Co-op (PEC) has been extended into the property for a short distance at the SW corner. There are no unsightly power lines running across the ranch.
Roads

One of the benefits of a large ranch is the variety and abundance of natural resources it provides. In the case of Pendleton Point Ranch, rich, red granite gravel sourced from the property was used to create a 3.4-mile primary road system that is built-up 18-48". Additionally, 2.5-miles of secondary roads were created to provide access to many hidden, out-of-the-way spots.

SUMMARY
Pendleton Point Ranch is a spectacular blank canvas ranch in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. With an incredibly diverse and properly managed ecosystem, this is the kind of ranch that does not come along very often. Its combination of beautiful scenery, sculpted habitat, abundant water, and outstanding location are truly second to none.

River Valley Ranch

Posted on: April 23rd, 2018 by Davidson Charles

The stunning Pedernales River valley between Cypress Mill and Johnson City is one of the most idyllic areas in our Texas Hill Country. River Valley Ranch, by all measures, represents the best this area has to offer. With its 1.3 miles of unspoiled river frontage, including a 20 acre natural lake with cascading runs on each end of it, rolling terrain, native grasses, majestic trees, diverse habitat, wildlife and unobstructed views that go on forever, this ranch is ready for its next steward. Less than 20 miles from the Hill Country Galleria, River Valley Ranch is an absolute escape from the crowds in one of the most peaceful settings that can be found in the Texas Hill Country.

The owners of the River Valley Ranch chose to donate a Conservation Easement on this fabulous property to protect the unique ecological values along the Pedernales River Valley for future owners and heirs to enjoy the quiet solitude it offers. Thousands of acres in on this part of the Pedernales have Conservation Easements which ensure that much of the area will remain in its natural state and be an oasis of nature close to rapidly developing Austin. As owner of the property you would be part of one of the largest conservation neighborhoods in Texas.

Note: This past week I went down to the river on the ranch to get some new late evening photos. After settling down on a boulder overlooking the river, I was struck by how quiet this ranch truly is. For an hour the only indication that any people existed was only the occasional jet flying over at 35,000 feet. One cannot hear any road noise, motors, nothing. The only thing to be heard was the background of mourning dove, bass crashing bait on the river, and the occasional turkey gobble. To believe that I was less than an hour from downtown Austin was unimaginable. The advantage of being within a "Conservation Neighborhood" was brought home.

Location: The ranch is located about 4 miles southwest of the town of Cypress Mill on paved Cypress Mill Road. The ranch is located 7 miles northeast of Johnson City and 30 miles west of Austin. Access to great shopping, golf courses and dining is close by, if one actually has any desire to leave the ranch.

Habitat: The ranch location is along the eastern front of the Edwards Plateau and is dominated by rolling terrain of native bunch grasses such as little bluestem and blue grama. Wooded areas consist of post oaks and live oaks, with some ashe junipers and mesquites mixed in with the oaks as well as sycamore, elm, and hackberry trees. Along the river, there are cypress, pecans and ash trees. Stands of thicker brush can be found in the under story of the trees in many areas, particularly along the multiple creeks and drainages winding down to the river.

Most of the land has desirable sandy loam soils with mixed limestone outcrops. The majority of the property is very usable, with gently rolling hills that are easily accessible. The ranch owners have not grazed the ranch for years and the cover of native grasses is extensive and in excellent condition.

Wildlife: The ranch is teeming with white-tailed deer, turkey, dove and some quail plus some feral hogs. Being kept in a natural state over the years, hunting is excellent and has been limited to just family and friends.

Improvements: There are no permanent structures on the ranch except for one small old barn. There are numerous roads on the ranch that are both paved and caliche covered. The perimeter fencing is in excellent condition. Several good caliche pits are on the ranch for internal use. There are also several electric service lines running through the property that allow easy access in multiple areas.

Water: This ranch sits over a very good aquifer and has excellent groundwater. Currently there are five water wells on the property, with two in operation. There are 1.3 miles of frontage of the Pedernales River on the ranch and it is all very accessible. The top of end of the river on the ranch and the lower area are primarily rocky outcrops with flowing water over small waterfalls and rapids. The center of the river run is dominated by Lake Lester, a 20-acre area that is deep and wide providing excellent recreational opportunities. This section of river sees very limited river traffic due to lack of nearby public accessibility

Conservation Easement: This ranch has a Conservation Easement on it to protect the property in its natural state. Being a negotiated easement, it is landowner friendly, while protecting the conservation values of the property and includes some notable aspects summarized below:

The ranch may be split in up to seven separate ranches. Each ranch may develop their own building envelope. This could also be created to have six ranches with a common area river frontage enjoyed by the up to six ranches.

Cattle may be grazed with a qualified grazing plan, and horses are allowed as well.

Current roads may all be maintained and new roads maybe built to access any new building envelopes. There are several caliche pits on the property, which may be used for road upkeep.

No restrictions on hunting and fishing, blind placement, etc. and food plots are allowed.

A copy of the easement document is available on request.

Electricity: Electricity is found at various places throughout the ranch.

Property Taxes: The property is currently taxed at 1-d-1 (Open Space) Agricultural Use valuation (under Wildlife Management), where applicable.

Minerals: The owners believe they own some minerals, which will transfer with the sale of the ranch. The exact amount is unknown.
