Property Description

260+/- Acre Hill Country Ranch offering privacy, incredible views, fantastic trees and nice water features including a strong seasonal creek with approximately quarter mile through the middle of the ranch. There is excellent access off Hwy 290 just west of Johnson City, 1 mile down Rocky Creek Road.

The ranch is positioned in the middle of Vineyard country, 25 minutes to Fredericksburg and One hour to Central Austin. The ranch is at the end of a short paved private road with a paved Ranch Road to the improvements.

This highly improved ranch is also totally off grid capable. Extensive solar, backup generators, 100,000 gallons of rainwater collection, 4000-gallon propane capacity, high fenced garden, Woodburning stoves, underground electric to the main compound. Theres also a deep water well on the property that provides sufficient water throughout in addition to the rainwater collection system.

Improvements are new and consist of a 3/3 single-story Ranch Home, a two-story Barndominium with 3/3 up and full kitchen, game area and saloon/lounge down. All improvements have extensive outdoor living, wraparound porches, outdoor kitchens, and entertaining areas. The improvements are built on a ridge to take advantage of incredible Hill Country views and a very consistent southern breeze. Very nice equipment barn with loft and small apartment is nearby.

Also included is a full-size NBA basketball court/tennis court/pickle ball court fully netted with flood lights.

Theres a fire pit amongst the oak trees between the Home and Barndominium in the center of a large patio for great gatherings at night. There is a 2/1 fishing shack with extensive deck and pier built overlooking a 1 acre pond (with liner) with fountain and floating dock in the center. Above is a smaller pond recirculating water through a man-made creek spilling into the larger pond.

The ranch has been carefully cultivated with expansive pastures with large, scattered oak trees, also parked out areas with medium to large oak trees throughout. Heavily wooded areas have been left throughout the ranch to accommodate the abundant wildlife. Hunting is excellent with turkey, whitetail deer and axis.

There are no restrictions. The ranch easily sleeps 40 people and accommodates many more for parties, events, and venues if desired.

There is a residence hidden in the trees to accommodate a caretaker.
