Rocking W Ranch, located between Kerrville and Comfort, offers the best of Hill Country living on a perfect scale. At 84.09 acres, the ranch has room to roam, but is easily manageable.
Spring-fed Bluff Creek transects the entire length of the Rocking W from north to south bringing the beauty and management flexibility of plentiful water. In addition, the Rocking W has the rare attribute of a commercial water well that is permitted for pumping up to five million gallons annually. The current owners have installed water cannons and spigots that allow them to easily water 50 acres of the property to keep it beautifully green regardless of Mother Natures whims.
The landscape is traditional Hill Country with rolling hills, shallow valleys and ancient live oaks. It was once part of the homestead of the original Texas Ranger named Walker. The peace, quiet and security is reminiscent of earlier days.
The range is primarily native grasses, although there is a 20 acre patch of Coastal Bermuda. The ranch, which is set up for livestock, has been divided into one large pasture with two smaller traps of six and eight acres. The smaller enclosures, designed to hold livestock for short periods, include water. The brush has been deliberately sculpted to maintain the propertys wildlife valuation.
Wildlife species on the low-fenced property include white-tailed deer, axis deer and turkeys. There are three corn feeders that can be converted to protein feeders. The hunting has been limited to the current owners and their family, friends and business associates.
Thanks to a series of concrete and black top roads access on the Rocking W is effortless. All of the propertys gates are battery-powered electric gates offering the ultimate in country convenience.
The attention to detail doesnt stop at the gate. The ranchs main house is 4,050 square feet of custom comfort featuring 2 or 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The metal roof and Austin stone construction fit naturally into the landscape. An open floor plan and exquisite touches such as black walnut cabinetry, travertine tile and hardwood floors create a sense of elegance without pretention. An expansive elevated deck overlooks the pool that features a burbling waterfall and a 1,000 square foot pool house.
The nearby 2,400 square foot, two-bedroom, three-bath barn house, complete with a kitchen and a laundry, provides superlative guest lodging.
Ranch infrastructure includes: a 40 x 60 equipment barn; a 20 x 75 concrete pad with a barn awning that is currently used for RV storage, but could be easily enclosed to make another barn; a 10 x 60 mobile home pad; a 12 x 20 utility barn with three attached horse stalls and a 40 x 50 livestock pen. There is also a set of covered livestock holding pens and a set of livestock working pens.
