The 128± acre Double S Ranch, located in Medina County, is a perfectly sized oasis of tranquility. With paved frontage on County Road 211 near FM 462, the Double S is situated between Hondo and Tarpley within an easy drive of San Antonio. An electric gate makes entries and exits easy.
The Hill Country landscape is a mosaic of native vegetation that includes a variety of trees. As you move from the south side to the north, the elevation increases. The pinnacle is marked by a small pavilion which is home to stunning 30-mile views.
The ranch is primarily low-fenced. The area is known for free-ranging exotics such as Aoudad sheep and Axis deer as well as plentiful native whitetails. Two small ponds provide water for wildlife. A wildlife food plot site has been carved into the habitat.
The two-bedroom/two-bath log-style home, with a detached garage and car port, is a study of warm wood and limestone. The stone fireplace invites people to gather on winter evenings as surely as the front and back porches beckon people to sit and sip coffee on lazy summer mornings. The metal-roofed house is serviced by a water well with a storage tank and includes a rain catchment system.
A solar-powered, one-bedroom log cabin, located nearby, would be a great office or workout room.
A metal equipment barn with a concrete floor and its own rain catchment system rounds out the infrastructure. With the sale of the property, all blinds, protein feeders, corn feeders, and furnishings in the two-bedroom log cabin convey.
Whether for a weekend or a lifetime, the Double S Ranch is an oasis of peace, quiet and elbow room in the Hill Country.
