Overview:The ranch is in one of the most beautiful areas in the Hill Country along the Guadalupe River. It is near a number of well-known camps (Waldemar, Mystic Heart of the Hills Rio Vista and Stewart), Laity Lodge and directly across from the Kerr Wildlife Management area. This property is truly one of a kind.
Location:The property is located just outside of the town of Hunt in Kerr County, TX on the Guadalupe River. The physical address of the property is 100 Shiner Bock Lane. See location map. The ranch is 30 minutes from Kerrville, 1.5 hours from San Antonio, and a little over 2 hours from Austin.
Land/Terrain/Topography: The ranch has a great combination of pasture land and heavily treed with long views of the Guadalupe River and surrounding country.
Improvements:Driving through the code accessed main gate, there is a well maintained road that continues to the compound of residences and improvements around the horse barn on the property. There are two, one bedroom guest houses with full kitchens and an office/3 bedroom “Stable house” near the rock horse barn on the property.
The manager’s house is a 3 BR/2BA home with metal roof and garage and workshop are nearby but slightly more secluded.
Located on the property is a very functional, well-built equipment barn with plenty of storage space for all the needed farm vehicles and implement storage. There is a 6 stall horse barn. There is a nice set of working pens next to the barn and turn out for horses.
A 32 stall, stone horse barn was built in the 1920s but has been well maintained and includes 2 tack rooms, 4 wash bays, and vet office with a bathroom. Nearby are two round pens, a walker, and outdoor arena.
Located beyond all of the equestrian facilities and houses and through a separate entry and high fence is the main residence which is truly one of a kind. Built in the 1920s by a California heiress, the house is a perfect blend of Southwestern and California ranch architectural style with phenomenal attention to details and finishes. The home is stone and stucco with a clay tile roof. It is situated high on a hilltop taking in the views of the Guadalupe River and Flat Rock Creek amongst the beauty and shade of the surrounding live oak tree canopy. The home features a second floor master suite, 5 guest rooms, huge great room with dueling fireplaces and two story, multiple living and dining areas, outdoor kitchen, numerous outdoor porches and patios, and a beautiful pool and cabana overlooking the creek and surrounding countryside.
A party pavilion with a concrete/tile floor, plumbing and metal roof, is on the lower level of the property along the river. The property is fenced and cross fenced.
Water:The water on this property is exceptional with frontage along both sides of the Guadalupe River and Flat Rock Creek. There are several impressive water features on the property including a clear, rocky bottomed dammed lake. There are 69 acres of free water rights and a new, 700’ well that pumps 55 gpm. Concrete and stone water troughs are to the various pastures and turn out.
Recreation/Hunting: The property has an abundance of traditional Texas wildlife – white tail deer, turkey, pigs, dove with fishing in the rivers and dam created lakes. Outstanding opportunities are available for walking, riding horses and 4 wheeling on the trails through the property, as well as spending time in shallow or deep pools of the river and creek.
