Sandy Fork Ranch 

277 ACRES – GONZALES CO.   

CONTRACT PENDING

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. Approximately 15 acres of the property is in improved variety Pecan Orchard. Though not currently in production, the trees are healthy and mature and allow for the possibility of future income from nut harvest.  In addition to the Pecan, there is an impressive array of Oaks and Elms throughout the ranch. 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 today’s real estate market.

 $1,795,000 or $6,480/acre.  This Property is co-listed with David O. Faust – 512.940.3300.  Surface offering only, there is no production or active leases. The majority of the ranch is located within FEMAs Zone A please see flood map. The property currently holds an agricultural tax exemption.

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.

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.
