Property Description


It is inspiring that such a place as Sweet Water Farm exists and is available to bring a Hill Country dream to fruition! Just down the road from Fredericksburg, this exciting property on the Pedernales River is 224 acres of picturesque beauty. The opportunities presented by the lush, green pastures and riparian bottomlands of this farm and ranch for sale in Gillespie County, Texas are truly unique and exciting.

Accessed via an electric gate along paved Old San Antonio Road and down a tree lined, all-weather entry road, Sweet Water Farm is just five miles from historic downtown Fredericksburg. Just two miles to Highway 290 and three miles to Highway 87, it is convenient to many nearby Hill Country amenities and attractions.

The flora of Sweet Water Farm ranges from the vast acres of Coastal Bermuda pastures dotted with shade from great Live Oaks and Post Oaks to the huge Pecan trees along the river. Almost one mile of Pedernales River frontage offers excellent year round recreation with fishing, swimming, kayaking, picnicking, or hunting. Deep pools in the river are home to both yellow and blue catfish and the rocky shoals are ideal for arrowhead and fossil hunting. Whitetail and Axis deer are abundant in the area, as are turkey, dove, ducks, and even occasional Canada geese.

Improvements include a new 80 x 125 tractor barn with concrete floor, a 60 x 125 lean shed on the back of the tractor barn, and a 50 x 140 pole barn. There are two water wells and three uncompleted, cased wells. The property also includes water rights from the Pedernales.

This land checks all the boxes for not just one but several visions for a prime Hill Country property. It is an ideal permanent or weekend Fredericksburg retreat while still offering agricultural and livestock income opportunities. There are also numerous hunting, vacation, and recreational options for this beautiful land along the Pedernales. An opportunity like Sweet Water Farm is absolutely rare and ripe with potential.
