‘Magnificent’ and ‘breathtaking’ are only a couple of words that can be used to describe this premier 6,378+/- acre, live water ranch. Picturesque views of the expansive oak covered valleys, roughly 2.5 miles of crystal clear Cedar Creek, and beautiful mountaintops are captivating. This ranch is a fantastic combination of scenic oak bottoms and pecan lined creek valleys while still maintaining the elevation that provide such incredible mountainous hill country views. Cedar Creek provides incredible live water, maintaining a strong flow even through the harshest periods of drought. Pinion pines are scattered throughout the higher elevations, along with large pecan, and mature oak trees towering over the Cedar Creek valley. This ranch is home to an abundance of wildlife including whitetail deer, fallow, axis, hogs, audad, turkey, the occasional elk and red deer, dove and quail making this property the hunters dream. From the native Indian sites, to the subterranean caves and sink holes, this property will leave an adventurer feeling right at home. Original settlement structures pay homage to the rich history of the property and would make an excellent restoration project.
Originally purchased in the early 1900’s from settlers that arrived in the region following the Civil War, this ranch was assembled one tract at a time. By purchasing the majority of the watershed for Cedar Creek, Blue Creek, and Spring Creek, Guenther protected the spring sources and creek flow for generations to come. This stunning property is located approximately 2.5 hours from San Antonio, with the front gate being only 1.5+/- miles from State Highway 55 down a well maintained county road.
Enjoy the natural beauty and tranquility of the hypnotizing landscape that this rare, one of a kind ranch has to offer. Read about the Coalson Family (the second Indian incident happened on the original ranch just across the county road from this ranch).
