The ideal location of this property is a major attraction located 5± miles from IH-10 and within minutes of the quaint town of Boerne. Premiere shopping areas, The Rim and La Cantera, are 25± miles away.

Once a part of the 11,000± acre renowned 711 Ranch, the David Ranch has been well taken care of, and it shows throughout the property. With elevations ranging from 1,730’± to 1,960’±, the property has a large-size feel and roll to it. The extreme care the owners have implemented to manage the water resources, land, and wildlife extensively is evident. Under a wildlife management program for ag valuation, the owners practice good land stewardship. Numerous springs start on the ranch and run throughout, eventually into Cibolo Creek. There are many fern grottos with seeps and other stronger springs that feed several nice ponds stocked with fish. The land is spectacular, and it feels like you are in a wildlife park as you traverse the well-groomed roads.

MAIN HOUSE

Perched on the top of one of the highest elevation points sits the awe-inspiring 3,856± sf industrial-Hill Country rustic style home where nature and estate meet. Soaring ceilings, warm woods, shiplap, cool concrete, native limestone, and full floor-to-ceiling glass windows combine and provide a constant connection to the outdoor landscape. A large gathering room with a stone fireplace creates an ample entertaining area. The gourmet kitchen and open dining area offer plenty of room for family and guests. A walk down the picture-window glass hallway leads to the spacious master bedroom and spa-like master bath retreat. The guest quarters with bedroom and bath as well as loft area bedroom and bathroom complete the home.

OTHER IMPROVEMENTS

Near the main home is a three-car garage with a spacious guest apartment. Shiplap walls, vaulted, beamed ceilings, industrial touches, and plenty of natural light create a welcoming retreat for friends and family. A separate 690± sf mother-in-law quarters is located near the main home and pool area.

GARAGES AND BARNS

A short distance from the home is a 1,810± sf climate-controlled 3-car garage ideal for collector cars and motorcycles with three glass pane roll-up doors and another equipment barn with three glass pane roll-up doors. Another building is currently being used as a plant workshop/greenhouse.

The ranch has been extensively managed for wildlife with axis, blackbuck, white-tail deer, and turkey. The ranch is under a wildlife exemption and the owner has installed numerous birdhouses throughout the ranch to enhance the bird population.

With the many springs and several ponds on the ranch, the water is a unique asset. A grotto-filled area on one of the springs has a dam and makes a tranquil spot for exploring. A water well supplies water to the improvements, garden areas, and water troughs for the wildlife.
