Location: This Gillespie county treasure is located off of FM 1323, just one mile from Willow City, well visited for its spring display of wildflowers and natural Hill Country beauty. These same rolling hills have also become a destination for world class wineries and the connoisseurs that are attracted to their unique investment opportunity. This central location is only 75 miles to both San Antonio and Austin, 30 miles to Horseshoe Bay, and 15 miles to charming town of Fredericksburg. Access is both handy and private….from Fredericksburg, travel NE on hwy. 16 for 14 miles and go right on FM 1323. Go about a mile and Box Canyon Trail is on your left. A beautiful gated entrance marks the private road that leads straight to the house on the hill.

Description: Willow Springs Ranch offers a unique opportunity for a buyer with investment, recreation, relaxed living, or all of the above, in mind. What really makes this one different is the existence of a special water source, an underground cave spring, that is a mere 40′ below the surface of the rolling fertile fields. This spring is enormous and has been flow tested at 700 gallons a minute. Think of that!!! One millions gallons of water a day flow right underneath your feet. The well is cased and electricity is at the well site. WOW – vineyards, orchards, hay, organic farming, fishing lakes, water features…the possibilities are endless. The Hill Country Underground Water Conservation District has issued a permit to produce and/or sell 27 million gallons of water a year. The well  sits in the corner of an approximate 20 acre terraced field, ready for production. Beyond that, rolling hills of wildflowers, oaks, cedar elms, mesquite, and other native vegetation give way to impressive westerly views. Sitting at the highest spot on the ranch and surrounded by a canopy of century oaks, is a 3 bed 2 bath hill country retreat that has been tastefully remodeled with modern luxuries while still maintaining it’s hill country farmhouse charm. Next to the home and just past the windmill and pila is a carport with attached enclosed storage / shop area.

Wildlife: Because this little piece of paradise is surrounded by larger neighboring ranches, the wildlife population is abundant and varied. There are both whitetail and axis deer, as well as turkeys, wild hogs, dove, and quail. 

Remarks: Willow Springs Ranch is an untapped resource that holds immense value not only today but more so in the future, as the availability of water becomes increasingly important. Its peaceful and private setting with stately oaks and clear views, lends itself to a the construction of a luxury home. Or just enjoy it as a hill country getaway, hunting in the mornings and evenings, and strolling through Fredericksburg during the day. And with so many other local attractions like Enchanted Rock, Willow City Loop, Luckenbach, and the dozens of local wineries, you will never want to leave. Owner may consider dividing.
