The V&K Ranch, located in Kerr County just minutes from Kerrville, is an ideal place to call home for a weekendor a lifetime. With two electronically-controlled entrances with camera-based security systems off of Freedom Trail Road, the 99.38 acre property is easy to access and just the right size to enjoy.
The high-fenced ranch, which features classic Hill Country topography and beauty, is divided into two 50-acre pastures: the Front 50 and the Back 50. The front 50 is sub-divided into two smaller pastures. The land has been managed so it retains its natural character while providing a home to blackbuck antelope, elk, and Sika deer as well as native whitetails.
Each entrance is outfitted with a paved sleeve that transitions to a gravel road; the other ranch roads are caliche.
Like the ranch, water is easily accessible. There are three wells on the property: one with a submersible pump, a second that is windmill powered, and a third that taps into the Trinity Aquifer is cased in and suitable for irrigation if the new owners choose to utilize it. Three handcrafted stone water troughs are located to serve either wildlife or livestock. In addition, the Back 50 has a stock tank that provides surface water and fishing opportunities.
The house is about 3,274 square feet and features three bedrooms and three baths on a single floor. The master bedroom boasts two California closets for maximum storage. There is also a library/study, a reading room and an office that is tucked away for privacy.
The homes adobe construction, Saltillo tile, open floor plan and light-filled rooms are reminiscent of Santa Fe. With gorgeous granite countertops, custom cabinetry, plenty of windows, expansive storage and commercial-grade Viking appliances including a built-in Viking wine cooler, the large, gourmet kitchen, which opens into the living room, is a focal point for both family gatherings and entertaining.
A large deck opens off the living room bringing the outside indoors. A set of stairs leads from the upper deck to a lower deck doubling the opportunity for outdoor enjoyment and providing access to an additional space that could be enclosed to expand the homes footprint. A spacious attic also offers potential for easy expansion.
The guest house, which features two bedrooms and two baths, is within easy walking distance, providing both convenience and privacy. The guest house includes a kitchen, dining room and a huge multi-purpose room that the current owners are using as a personal gym.
Both houses are equipped with Culligan water systems.
The ranch also features two barns. The most recent addition was built to house horses and includes stalls as well as attached paddocks. The older barn is currently being used for hay storage, but can also be used for horses.
