French Ranch 

549 ACRES – GONZALES CO.   

 

A true “diamond in the rough” the French Ranch is located north of IH-10 and south of HWY 90 in northern Gonzales County.  Booming Austin and San Antonio are only a 75 minute drive away with Houston being just over 2 hours.  The quiet town of Waelder is 4.5 miles to the east.  This generational family owned ranch has approximately 3500 ft. of frontage along lightly traveled County Road 423.

The ranch is 90% wooded and 10% open country with an impressive array of towering hardwoods including Live Oak, Post Oak and Cedar Elm. Near the center of the property there is a 30 acre Bermuda grass field dotted with huge Live Oak trees. 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 50 animal units in normal rainfall years.

There are 3 surface ponds, one of which has held water continuously for 70 years.  Seasonal Elm Creek enters the ranch near the northeast corner and meanders south the entire length of the ranch for about a mile. Though seasonal, the creek can hold shallow pools of water parts of the year.  Even with ownership of both sides of Elm Creek, the amount of floodplain is here minimal. The stream bed is a rust-colored gravel highlighted with exposed yellow bedrock. A towering canopy of trees and grassy meadows create not only a stunningly beautiful setting but also prime wildlife habitat.

There has been no hunting on the ranch for at least 50 years. This lack of hunting pressure, along with the availability of natural feed sources, an abundance of surface water and heavily wooded areas have created a sanctuary for the native wildlife.  The ranch is completely low-fenced with large neighbors on 3 sides.

With booming Austin and San Antonio nearby, the French Ranch is a blank slate for its next owner to enhance and improve upon its natural beauty. Mature hardwood forest, abundant wildlife, Elm Creek, raw unspoiled habitat and a highly desirable location make the French Ranch a rare opportunity in today’s world.

$3,995,000 or $7,325/acre.  This Property is co-listed with David O. Faust – 512.940.3300.  Surface offering only. Known easements include a water transmission line and an overhead transmission line both located on the southern portion of the property.
