LOCATION: The ranch is conveniently located approximately 8 miles North of Fredericksburg's Main street off Hwy 16N. Once you enter the gate at Hwy 16N you'll travel a short, well maintained deeded easement to the ranch allowing you privacy from the highway.
TERRAIN: This 165.63 ac ranch has an easy roll to it. A field with scattered Oaks and some of the most majestic views we have witnessed to the NW overlooking the country hillside would make an exceptional building site. The other portion of the ranch is heavily wooded with large Post Oaks and other varieties of trees including brush providing habitat for wildlife. More "forever" views can be found on this side of the ranch as well.
WATER: There are 3 wells on the ranch. One supplies the hunting cabin; another supplies the home along with a large storage tank and rain water collection system, and additionally a solar equipped well supplies a small pond.
IMPROVEMENTS: A nicely maintained crush gravel road leads you past a small quaint, very well maintained hunting cabin which features a studio-style one room with kitchenette and has a separate bath house. On down from the cabin is a unique Hacienda style home (4029sqft according to GCAD) which sits among jaw dropping views across the hill country. A masterful flow has been created between the main home, 2 casitas, and 3 car garage anchored with a large courtyard centerpiece.
Main Home:As you enter the main living area of the home you can't help but stop and take in the views from expansive windows. Letting the beauty of the outdoors in with windows throughout the home including the large oversized custom doors with glass give anyone experiencing the home a peaceful mindset.
The living area features a kiva-style wood burning fireplace and a nice office or flex space situated next to it. The large family-style kitchen has a generous size island, colorful tile, butler pantry, and all the necessities to cook and entertain family and friends. Just off the kitchen you'll find your laundry room, pantry, and a large light filled room designed in the "rotunda" style which the owner currently uses as an office. Not far from this end of the main home is an entertainment room with bar area, inglenook with another kiva-style wood burning fireplace, and game area.
Master Casita: This expansive casita features 2 master bedrooms with a wonderful en suite between. The en suite consist of a common shower with 2 separate areas for personal sinks/dressing areas, his/her separate water closets, and 2 separate walk-in closets.
Guest Casita: The guest casita which is attached to the Main home by a breezeway features a comfortable 1 bedroom, 1 bath sleeping space and walk-in Sauna just around the corner.
Garage: The 3 car garage has a nice size workroom attached and an additional room that is used for solar storage. The home is connected to CTEC electric but also has solar which proved to be perfect when keeping the home toasty during the winter ice storm of 2021.
Summary: The ranch would make anyone an enjoyable hunting ranch or family retreat. If you'd like to drive into your property and witness stunning views, your own Longhorn herd grazing the tall grass, and hang out under bright starry nights then this may be the ranch for you. This ranch property provides relaxation and Hacienda style living among a peaceful oasis in the Texas Hill Country only minutes away from the bustling excitement of Fredericksburg's Main street.
