Pedernales Valley Ranch-293 ACRES

Acres: 293 +/-

Location: This amazing recreational property is located in central Blanco county, only 7 miles from Johnson City, 20 miles from Marble Falls, 50 miles to Austin, and 60 miles from San Antonio. It has plenty of paved frontage and is only seven miles from town. From Hwy 281, go north from Johnson City 2.5 miles and go west on FM 1323, then travel 4.5 miles to the property on the left.

Description: This one is a sportsman’s paradise, ready to go. Rolling hill country covered in oaks and native brush and grass. A fine ranch house perched on a hilltop with amazing views complete with a metal building for ranch toy storage. Hard work and many dozer hours have gone into not only improving this ranch structurally but also the habitat where truly big bucks and coveys of bobwhite quail thrive.

Wildlife: Contrary to the Hill Country norm, this unique area, once sustaining the community appropriately named “Sandy”, is made up of red sand similar to that of areas south of San Antonio. These strong soils contribute to the growth of forbs and brush that grow truly big deer. Another unique feature, due in part to the natural habitat, and in part to the stewardship of the current owner, combined, have created an environment that supports a healthy, stable population of bobwhite quail. Turkey also frequent the area and dove hunting is as good as it gets for the hill country.

Improvements: Pass though the substantial ranch entrance and automatic gate, take a deep breath and relax as you follow a crushed granite driveway far from life’s worries to the top of one of the highest hills, with 360 degree views, where there sits a very nice 3 bedroom / 2 bathroom home. This ranch style residence has vaulted ceilings, a rock fireplace, and rustic pine walls and is adorned with high end furniture, that may be negotiable. From the covered front and back porches, one can enjoy the breezes and sunsets over Blanco county. The yard is fenced, encompassing flagstone walkways, some huge old oak trees, and a rock slab fire pit area. A very strong 50+ gpm water well feeds the house and a picturesque windmill in another pasture pumps into a large rock cistern and trough built by hands of the past. Finally, a 40’x50′ metal building / shop, on concrete slab, offers plenty of room for trucks, trailers, atv’s, tools, and feed.

Remarks: This unique ranch is far enough out to enjoy the peace and quiet but close enough to get there on a weekday after work. Red sandy soil topped with centuries old oaks, mesquite, and cactus remind you of wild South Texas while rolling vistas and outcroppings of sand stone slabs confirm you are still in the beautiful Hill Country. This one is ready to walk in and enjoy today!
