Located in Sisterdale, Texas, with frontage on Bloodhound Trail, this 202 acre ranch in Kendall County is a one-of-a-kind live water, hunting, and recreational ranch that every Texas buyer dreams about. Bloodhound Ranch is ideally located just 20 minutes from Boerne or Luckenbach, 30 minutes from Fredericksburg wine country, and under an hour from the amenities of downtown San Antonio.
Tucked privately away among the incredible picturesque countryside, there is a 2,261 square-foot historic home with three bedrooms and one bathroom on two levels. The kitchen was part of the original homestead, which was built in 1877. All the large rocks in the home were incorporated from the property itself. In addition, there is a 288 square-foot office or tiny home that consists of a studio building with a bathroom, kitchenette, and a porch. Adjacent to this, there are indoor/outdoor dog kennels with heat and A/C, automatic waterers, heated floors, and dog doors that lead to sectioned covered porches, which each have their own fenced yards with shade. There is a newly built 1224 shed that has a 1012 room sectioned off with A/C and lights on both sides. The bigger side is perfect for storing feed and the smaller room is a perfect air-conditioned work room, which could also easily be turned into an additional tiny home. Furthermore, there is another 168 square-foot building, that is currently unfinished, but was previously used as a hunters cabin. Several other older barns and outbuildings, including a smokehouse and a newer small dog washroom with a dog bath, are also included.
Two electric wells, five water storage tanks, a water catchment system and numerous water troughs supply water to the ranchs improvements and wildlife. There is electricity and a well at the front of the acreage that supplies the water troughs. The well produces an impressive 100 gallons per minute. The water catchment system, with a 2,900 gallon tank, is located at the cattle barn, while three 2,900 gallon water storage tanks are at the barn and the office is also on a water catchment and UV light-filtered system, and then a well at the house that is tapped into the springs that feed into the creeks. Live spring-fed East Sister Creek and wet-weather Askey Creek run through the entire east side of the property and both sides of the creeks are owned. An especially stunning patch of large oak trees near The Deep Hole at the creek is recognized as being the deepest water hole in East Sister Creek that has never gone dry with some of the biggest Cypress trees you will ever see. Its the perfect camping and swimming spot! There are three stock ponds, one of which is full of catfish, perch and bass.
The entire ranch is completely high fenced with stay-tight fencing, expertly designed to keep predators out. The property has been meticulously maintained with snaring and trapping to keep out and eradicate bobcats, coyotes, racoons, porcupines, fox and more, as well as being 100% hog free. The wildlife management program, which has been in place for the last 12 years, has produced 40 axis and 160+ class native Hill Country Whitetail. There are also black buck, scimitar horned oryx, Rio Grande turkeys, and seasonal doves. In addition, the property is ag exempt with some cattle and sheep present.
There are numerous hunting improvements including a 40X90 open-faced metal barn with a walk-in cooler, ice machine, and a mounted winch for skinning deer over a drained floor, with extra room that could be turned into a processing room. Various corn and protein feeders, which hold between 350 to 1,000 pounds, have been strategically placed throughout the ranch. There are game cameras located at each blind and feeding station. This is an amazing, turnkey hunting property.
The topography on the ranch is gently rolling with a lush landscape that consists of approximately 40% brush, 40% pasture, and 20% farmland. There are two established WW-B Dahl Bluestem hay producing fields. The fields are extremely drought resistant with no need to reseed or plow. Much of the farm equipment will convey to buyers. There are two 500 gallon fuel tanks and two large silos, working cattle pens and a barn with a cattle chute. A barn and cattle chute provide another area near the house for heifer calves to be separated.
Bloodhound Ranch is a stunning hunting and live water property that is ideally located in a highly sought-after area of the Texas Hill Country. This acreage offers the terrain and space to fulfill many grand visions for your dream ranch.
