Painted Pony Ranch – 200 Acres

Acres:  201 +/- acres.

Location:  Centrally located in Gillespie county, only 23 miles from Fredericksburg, 28 miles to Kerrville, 84 miles to Austin, and 88 miles to San Antonio. Truly at the end of a county road, this getaway offers the ultimate in privacy. From the end of the county road, the property is accessed using a short 1/2 mile deeded easement through another beautiful ranch.

Description:  All that the Texas Hill Country has to offer. Just over 200 acres of rolling  hills loaded with several varieties of oak trees and other hardwoods but very little cedar. Horse friendly pastures covered in lush grass, and interesting rock outcroppings in classic Gillespie county style. Regular rectangular shaped property that is completely fenced and improved with wells, house, cabin, barns, etc.

Wildlife: Common to Gillespie county and the hill country, there is a ton of game on this place. In a quick circle around the ranch, in the middle of the day, I saw over 20 whitetail deer. There are also turkeys, wild hogs, and an occasional free roaming exotic.

Improvements:  Step back in time but do it in style when you enter this ranch. Four foot perimeter fencing allows free passage of wild game. Wind through the giant live oaks and approach the historic farm house as generations before, have done. This lovingly preserved landmark has “1931” stamped on the front porch steps. Inside, wood floors, beamed ceilings, and a sleeping loft, will take you to a time long ago. Very comfortable and fun. In addition, a water well, an antique and working raised pila, a comfortable bunk house (or game room complete with full bath), several historic barns, pens, and a firepit round out the list. On a hilltop in the pasture, a stately windmill pumps water from a second well.

Classic Hill Country character describe this ready-to-go getaway. Really a wonderful recreational paradise, and at a great price. At just over $4,179 per acre, this is a deal for an improved Gillespie county ranch.

PRICE:  $840,000
