Ringtail Ranch in Harper, Texas, is conveniently located 6 miles off Highway 290, with an electric gated entrance just off Kramer Road. The ranch is situated in the highly desirable Gillespie County, only 28 miles from Kerrville and 29 miles from Fredericksburg. This outdoor paradise offers paved frontage road access, an original vintage homestead, peaceful views, and great surrounding recreational opportunities.
The nearby city of Fredericksburg is now known as Texas Tuscany because of its many wineries. It also offers plenty of unique shopping and restaurants, frequent festivals, as well as hiking and exploring at Enchanted Rock. Kerrville, known as the Capital of the Texas Hill Country, also has numerous recreational options including its own serene Riverwalk thats about five miles long. Both towns are known for their live theater and art and with them being located just around the corner, would make this an ideal spot for an Airbnb, weekend getaway, or forever home.
Originally built in about 1945 and remodeled in 2007, the single-story, 1,070 square-foot vintage cottage has three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The home still has the original fireplace, as well as two screened-in porches to enjoy peaceful views of the Texas Hill Country and gently rolling terrain.
Additional improvements include an original well house with water storage on top, a newer barn with parking for three vehicles and a workshop area. A 220 foot-deep electric well supplies water to the home and single-phase electricity is provided by Central Texas Electric Co-op. In addition, there is an 11,000 gallon concrete reservoir, three water storage tanks and a hand pump for water in case the electricity were to ever go out.
The perimeter is entirely low fenced, giving the native Whitetail deer and turkey free range of the land. There are a large variety of trees for shade including mature Live Oaks and some Spanish Oaks that freckle the landscape. The ranch is wildlife exempt and there is a pollinator garden in place to preserve that landscape. No hunting has been done on the property since 2007.
This quaint and picturesque property is a rare Texas Hill Country find and would make a great secluded weekend retreat or forever home.
