Property Description

The Sandy Fork Ranch is located on HWY 97, just 3 miles south of IH-10 in Gonzales County. Booming Austin and San Antonio are a 75 minute drive away with Houston being just over 2 hours. The town of Gonzales is 13 miles to the southeast. The property has approximately 265 ft. of frontage along HWY 97. This generational, family-owned ranch is 80% wooded and 20% open with an impressive array of towering hardwoods including Pecan, Live Oak, and Cedar Elm. The sandy loam soil in this area has produced an incredibly dense stand of grass that is of high quality and ag-value. The ranch is currently utilized as a cow-calf operation and can support 27 animal units in normal rainfall years. On the north end of the property there is a 40 acre Bermuda grass field ideal for grazing cattle. The property has a Gonzales County Water Supply Corp meter in place that supplies water to a trough near a set of modest cattle pens. In addition to the rural water service, there are a total of 3 water wells on the property. Two of these wells have been drilled and cased but have are not completed. The third is a unique artesian water well that flows into a stock tank. This artesian well has flowed continuously for 30 years and speaks to the groundwater potential of the area. Sandy Fork Creek borders the property to the south and west for approximately 1.2 miles. Though seasonal, you'll find that this stretch of Sandy Fork Creek holds pools of water most of the time. The creek bottom area is a natural game corridor and is lined with a variety of large trees. These towering trees and grassy meadows create prime wildlife habitat and a stunningly beautiful setting. There has been no hunting on the ranch for at least 30 years. This lack of hunting pressure, along with the availability of natural feed sources, and heavily wooded areas for cover have created a sanctuary for the native wildlife. Mature, hardwood trees, abundant wildlife, creek frontage, raw unspoiled habitat and a highly desirable location near major metro areas make the Sandy Fork Ranch a rare opportunity in todays real estate market.
