Summary

The Barnes Ranch is a tremendous opportunity to own a high-fenced hunting and recreational ranch, conveniently located 20± miles northwest of Kerrville and 30± miles west of Fredericksburg. The ranch is in a category of its own with a charming three-bedroom/one-bathroom home, a large equipment barn, two Tifton 85 Bermuda fields, and a beautiful rolling landscape. Properties of this size and in this location do not come on the market very often.

OVERVIEW

The ranch is completely high-fenced and ready to serve as a personal hunting and recreational ranch with an abundance of wildlife including a variety of exotics, native whitetail deer, and turkey. The ranch has extremely good cover for wildlife with thick stands of shin oak. The majority of the cedar has been eradicated.  A well-diversified ranch from a vegetation standpoint with live oak, post oak, blackjack oak, and Spanish oak all present. There are two good-sized Tifton 85 fields that are in great shape and add a nice feature to the ranch. A nice stock pond supplemented by a water well rests in a valley just below the ranch house. The charming ranch house is 1,152± sf and features three bedrooms and one bathroom.  The home is perfect for a weekend getaway retreat with wooden floors that accentuate the living space. There are five water wells on the ranch and a good water distribution system in place to various troughs. The ranch is currently under an Ag Exemption.
