About This Property
Located just 15± miles from the center of wine country sits a recently renovated 100-year-old German rock home on the banks of Flores Creek. A canopy of Pecan trees shade the cool spring fed waters of the creek-giving the owner multiple options to expand this water source into larger swimming holes. The peace that surrounds these 120± acres with big views and multiple homesites is hard to find so close to the conveniences of Fredericksburg. Live Oaks and Cedar Elms are thick and lush throughout the property providing ample cover for those wanting a solid hunting option. Currently under an ag exemption, taxes are minimal, and the raw canvas allows the buyer an opportunity to clear as they deem fit. A rocky floor gives way to a shallow fertile valley near the original homestead, passing multiple wet weather creeks and draws along the way. Pecan Ridge Ranch is conveniently located 20± minutes to Harper, Doss and Fredericksburg and only 12± minutes to either Highway 87 or 290. The edge of wine country is just around the corner and herds of free ranging cattle and goats are at your gate. Turkey, dove, hog and Whitetail deer have all been seen on the property. Fox, ringtail cats, blue indigo and the occasional coyote are seen in the area as well. The two-bedroom, one-bathroom rock home was renovated in May and June of this year. New plumbing and wiring, a cistern, roof and more will give you the opportunity to rest and rejuvenate on your visits. The new larger porch awaits your morning coffee or yoga ritual as you watch your little ones hunt for arrowheads near the creek. Large neighbors assure limited traffic on your frontage and provide additional “elbow room” between you and the ranching families that have inhabited the area for over 150 years. The entertainment, beauty and culture of Gillespie County await you and offer the relaxed lifestyle so many dream of, if you make Pecan Ridge Ranch your refuge of choice.
