Stunning 224± acre live water and exotic breeding ranch located in both Gillespie and Kendall Counties between Fredericksburg and Comfort, Texas. The property is minutes from the heart of wine country and is accessed off of Highway 87 just eight miles south of Fredericksburg and twelve miles north of Interstate 10 and Comfort, Texas. Kerrville is a short 30-minute drive away, San Antonio is less than an hour away and Austin can be reached within an hour and a half.
A beautiful 1,800± square-foot rock ranch house sits above the banks of the Bear Creek and overlooks a valley of lush and rolling pastures. The home features two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, vaulted ceilings with exposed wood beams, a floor to ceiling stone fireplace, granite countertops in the kitchen, and a two-car garage. The greatest feature of the house is the 750± square-foot back porch perched above Bear Creek that overlooks the stone waterfall just across the creek and the stone steps that lead down to the banks of the cool blue water.
Just inside the entrance of the ranch are two historic German stone block homes, just waiting to be restored and turned into a bed-and-breakfast or guest home. Additional improvements include a 2,000± square-foot insulated metal barn with concrete floors, roll-up doors, and plenty of equipment storage space. There is also a 1,000± square-foot covered shed and storage space.
The ranch is well watered with a professionally engineered three-tier spillway system on Bear Creek, allowing for large pools covering nearly seven acres with depths up to 15 feet. Bass, perch and catfish are abundant and can be seen up and down the creek, which extends almost three-quarters of a mile. There is an electric water well that supplies water to the home and barns.
The property line is edged by well-maintained low-fencing on three sides and high-fencing on the other. Rolling pastures of thick native grasses are dotted with Live and Post Oaks. The lower 94± acres, which has been left untouched and has not been hunted in over seven years, sits mostly in Kendall County. Cherry, Pecan and Cedar Elm cover the higher elevations on the south side of the property. The entire property boasts frequent elevation change, lush vegetation and varying degrees of soil and rock composition.
Bear Creek Crossing provides the perfect habitat for wildlife and has been used as an exotic breeding facility for Kudu, Black Buck, and Nilgai. Other wildlife seen on the property includes Axis, Whitetail deer, turkey, quail, dove, duck, and other seasonal waterfowl.
