OVERVIEW, LOCATION, & ACCESS
SBK Ranch lies in the scenic terrain of northeastern Gillespie County. Charming Fredericksburg (great restaurants, music venues, shopping, hospital, supplies) is an easy 20-minute drive from the property. This tract is a 1-hour & 30-minute drive from both Austin and San Antonio. The property sits within Willow City Ranch, which is a gated subdivision with light restrictions (see details below). Hunting is allowed, the property is Ag-Exempt, and the HOA annual dues are approximately $280.00. Access to the property is provided by a well-maintained granite gravel road.
Knott Branch Creek
Knott Branch creek runs for approximately 1,600' through the property. Although this is a seasonal creek, the neighboring landowner to the SW has constructed a 1.00 ac pond downstream which provides some evidence that pond construction on the property is viable.
There is a capped water well on the property located near the entrance along WC Ranch Rd. The well was drilled in November of 1997 and has a yield of 10 GPM. Note, a water pipeline would need to installed to run water to the main portion of the property or a new well could be drilled. There is adequate groundwater in the local area (see enclosed Groundwater Map).
LAND & WILDLIFE
The tree cover on the property is outstanding with a mix of Post Oak, Cedar Elm, Mesquite, and scattered Live Oak.
With deep, loamy soils throughout the property and a miniscule amount of rock, numerous natural openings would be ideal for the addition of seasonal food plots for the deer herd and other wildlife.
White-tailed deer and Rio Grande turkey are abundant and Axis deer are known to pass through the property. If you are a bowhunter, it would be difficult to find a better small acreage tract that has the ingredient trees and soils to create your own personal hunting honey hole.
The terrain on the property is slowly undulating and the elevation ranges from a low of 1,820' along the southern portion of the tract to 1,860' in the middle and northern portions.
POWER, FENCING, & ROADS
Power provided by Central Texas Electric Co-op (CTEC) has been extended along the eastern boundary of the property. There are no unsightly power lines running through the middle of the tract. There are no roads or trails through the property providing an opportunity for the new owner to create a trail system to their liking. The property is fenced along the western and northern boundaries and is in good condition.

This property is an idyllic small acreage tract in the heart of the Texas Hill Country.
