Looking for your own glorious piece of the Hill Country? Look no farther than this ±154-acre ranch, located just 5 minutes from the Hunt Store in the river-crossed heartland of Kerr County.
Hunt, Texas, the tiny community located at the confluence of the north and south forks of the Guadalupe River and just 15 minutes from Kerrville, is arguably the Hill Country's most sought after address. The Hunt-area, which has plenty of rural character and elbow room, is an easy drive from San Antonio and Austin.
Used as a recreational ranch, the high-fenced property is home to a host of exotics including Aoudad sheep, blackbuck antelope, and Corsican rams. White-tailed deer and other native game also roam the ranch.
The topography has just the right rough edge. Hills, covered with a mix of oak, juniper and native brush, rise, flatten and then fall into the draws below.
The ±3,000-square foot main house features 3 or 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths and 2 fireplaces. An expansive swimming pool, complete with a sprawling deck perfect for soaking up the sun and the views, is located near the main house. The second house, suitable for guests or staff, includes 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and encompasses ±1,700 square feet.
When it comes to ranch infrastructure, the ranch boasts a traditional "big, red barn" as well as a pole barn with 9 horse stalls. Two water wells supply the ranch's domestic and livestock needs.
Coyote Creek Ranch is located near Flatonia in Fayette County positioned less than 90 minutes from Houston, Austin and San Antonio with easy access to I-10.
For the past 50 years, the owners have used the low-fenced ranch, which fronts on FM 2237 about 3.5 miles from the community of Cistern, as a natural haven for hunting and camping. To encourage and attract wildlife, the owners have maintained the land's native character. The land supports a mixture of post oaks, mature cedars, mesquite and yaupon—a buffet for game.
Through the years, the owners have carved out hidden clearings and cut trails through the woods by following the same paths over and over again. An all-weather caliche road provides access from the front of the property to the back.
Depending on the new owners' goals, the land could be cleared to create an open landscape, partially cleared to create a mosaic of grass and woody plants, or left in its natural state. The gently rolling terrain offers a variety of potential building sites for a dream home or an expansive family compound with guest houses.
An 800-square-foot, off-the-grid cabin provides a housing option for those who like to live close to the land or for people seeking a temporary camp as a larger home is being constructed. The 2-bedroom, 1 -bath cabin features a 20'x20' main room. Generators power the lights as well as the air-conditioning units, while propane fuels the heater. A rain catchment system provides water. For those looking for more convenience, county water and rural electricity are readily available.
An 8' x 8' shed housing the generators and tools rounds out the ranch infrastructure. Through the years, a livestock grazing lease has provided an additional income stream, maintained the agriculture tax valuation and ensured the fences have been maintained in order to hold cattle. The agriculture tax valuation could be converted to a wildlife tax valuation if the new owners so choose.
