Gap Creek Ranch

Posted on: September 14th, 2021 by Stefanie Cobb

Gap Creek Ranch is just right outside of Cranfills Gap and historic Hico, Texas. The beautiful 208 Acre ranch has an impressive 11+ Acre lake that is the crowning jewel of the property. The ranch house sits alongside of the private lake to create a home site that is part of an inspiring natural habitat, which is often home to plenty of geese, ducks, and other wildlife.

If walls could talk this home would tell us a story from 1910, when the Knudson family purchased the ranch. Their original home, which sat over behind the red barn, must have disappeared in the years following their move into the current ranch house. The original photo that shows the “old” part of the ranch house is from 1920. The Knudson families were part of the Norwegian immigrant community that is still centered around Cranfills Gap and Clifton area. The original ranch house built in 1920 sat along side of the road next to the front gate. In 2004 the current Sellers moved the old house to its present location overlooking the vast lake, and added another 2400 sq. ft. to the home to create and architectural gem of 3400 sq. ft.

This house was designed to reflect the look and feel of a fine Texas Ranch house from the 1940’s. The downstairs area features stained wood ceilings that add a warm glow to the rooms. There are 4 bedrooms/ 3 full bathrooms and 3 living areas. Each of the bedrooms has a distinct character and the house offers a lovely library as well. The main living room, kitchen and large dining room have an open concept style with a wood-burning fireplace anchoring the living room. (In 2020 the Seller made some upgrades: New roof, new exterior/interior paint, new carpet, new plantation shutters in bedrooms, new appliances, remodeled bathrooms and added a new master bath, new bar area with ice maker, wine refrigerator and drink refrigerator, new tankless water heater, new well tank.)

The exterior of the home has a wrap-around porch offering a cool spot of shade for sitting on the porch swings, overlooking the lake and surrounding Bosque & Hamilton County hills. In the evenings enjoy dinner in the wood pergola or gather around the firepit overlooking the lake.

The property also has a 2-car carport, and the original 900 sq. ft. barn that has a media room downstairs with ice machine, workshop and an upstairs guest quarters with full bath.

The land has an 11-Acre lake, (3) tanks, .75 miles of creek that spans across the property and space for a potential 2000 ft. airstrip. There is a variety of terrain and hardwoods on the ranch, which makes it a haven for wildlife. The back
northeast corner of the property offers some beautiful elevation changes with the highest point on the property reaching 1160 ft. above sea level.

Lake Medina Deep Water Showplace

Posted on: August 13th, 2021 by Lamb Jerrett

Lake Medina – Deep Water – With 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 2.235 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 dream-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. Alternatively, a resort-styled lake cabin retreat could provide for a recreational revenue stream or Air-B-N-B.

The property has an existing water well and electricity is on-site. An older dwelling has been removed from the property, which had 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, Atascosa (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.

Running M Ranch

Posted on: May 22nd, 2021 by Davidson Charles

Running M Ranch is a true gentlemens cattle ranch located just 12 miles south of College Station. The ranch is set up well to continue running a high-end cattle operation, own a fantastic recreational ranch, or as an investment for future development. The property boasts a classic ranch home overlooking a 20 acre fishing lake, several other large lakes, over 2 miles of Navasota River frontage and almost a mile of frontage on Hwy. 6 between Navasota and College Station.

Location: The ranch is located in southern Brazos County, 15 minutes south of College Station. 1.15 hours to Houston. The ranch is accessed off of frontage road to Highway 6.
Habitat: The ranch is located in the Post Oak Savanna Region. Most of the pastures on the western side of the property are improved while the bottom land near the river remain native pasture. Most of the property has been groomed with a few areas left untouched for wildlife habitat. Jones Creek is on the north side of the property and is excellent habitat for waterfowl. Massive post oak, live oak and pecan trees scatter the pastures.

Wildlife: The White-tailed Deer population is abundant across the ranch. With miles of both the Navasota River bottom and Jones Creek, the habitat creates excellent conditions for abundant deer on the ranch. The ranch feeds deer year-round and has surprisingly large deer being along the river.

Wood ducks utilize the north portion of the property along Jones Creek and during the winter months, the lakes and creeks are filled with migrating waterfowl. There are excellent areas to create artificial wetlands along the river bottom to create even more extensive waterfowl opportunities.

Dove hunting on the ranch is fantastic due to the amount of water scattered throughout the property. The dove travel from the fertile fields of western Brazos County to the ranch in the evenings.

The fishing possibilities are endless. The lakes and ponds are stocked with bass, bream and catfish. Along the river is excellent fishing for large catfish.

Improvements: The house is 2 stories with hardwood and brick floors. The house was designed to entertain guests in an intimate setting. The home has 6 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. Many of the bedrooms lead out to a large deck on the second floor overlooking the 20 acre lake. The kitchen is sectioned off from the dining and breakfast area. There is a large dining room located just off the living room. Just outside the living room is a small walkway to a deck that overlooks the creek running behind the home.

Located on the 20 acre lake is a multilevel boathouse that is used to house 2 jet skis and a large entertaining area on the first and second levels. Just a few steps from the boathouse is a mens and womens bathhouse.
On the Northwest side of the property is a 2,818 sf pole barn complete with cattle working pens. Located next to the pole barn is a manufactured building ideal for an office.

Water: The Ranch has multiple water features. The main attraction is the 20 acre recreational lake located in the front of the property, which is excellent for both fishing and boating. There is also a 7 acre lake on the property as well as several smaller stocked lakes. Another notable feature is over 2 miles of Navasota River frontage. The ranch’s north border is Jones Creek, which has water most of the year and there are several permanent sloughs along the creek.
There are multiple water wells on the property used to irrigate hay pastures and maintain the level of the lake.

Electricity: Electric lines run to the house area and are available along Hwy 6.

History: The ranch is rich with family history, having been in the cattle business since 1937. Carroll Myers Jr. introduced the first Santa Gertrudis bull to the herd that was purchased from Mr. Ben Alexander. Running M Ranch received its purebred status and herd number 45 years ago and grew from the ranch in Kendalia, Texas to the Navasota ranch. The ranch in Navasota has been the headquarters since 1988.
