Misty Valley Ranch In Central Texas Hill Country

Description

Misty Valley Ranch is truly a rare find.  It features a gorgeous 3 bedrooms/3 bath hill country style limestone rock house built in 1941 with stainless appliances, granite countertops and hardwoods throughout, pool, fire pit, 2 horse barns and an equestrian riding arena!  And all this is 5 minutes to Kerrville and 45 minutes to the best shopping in San Antonio!

Location/Access:

Misty Valley Ranch is located in the heart of the beautiful Hill Country just on the outskirts of Kerrville, Texas, with convenient access off Harper Road.  The ranch is very private and secluded from the road.  It is just 3 miles to the stores and restaurants along Highway 27 and just 1 mile to Interstate 10 taking you just 45 minutes to access great shopping at The Rim and La Cantera in San Antonio or 1 hour to San Antonio International Airport!  Also, you are just minutes from all the wineries, quaint shops and restaurants in Fredericksburg, Comfort and Boerne.  The ranch has a nicely landscaped entry gate off Harper Road with a paved road over your dam on Town Creek and all the way to the house.

Improvements:

The ranch has a gated entry with paved road access to the house, a beautiful ~2400 sq. ft. 3 bedroom/2 bath hill country limestone home nestled under huge pecan trees along Misty Creek.  The house was built in 1941 and updated in 2003 with stainless appliances, granite countertops, recessed lighting and hardwoods throughout.  The home has 3 living areas, including a quaint study with French doors that open into the main living room and open kitchen. 

Outside are three patio spaces, a pool with built-in grill and fire pit nearby, a separate game room/office by the pool, and even a brick pizza oven!  The surrounding grounds are beautifully landscaped with turf grass, retaining walls and a full sprinkler system. 

Only steps away are the two horse barns and equestrian riding arena!  If you are a horse lover, this ranch is for you!  The main barn has 8 stalls plus tack and storage rooms that open into a central alley and a covered workshop for tools.  The second barn has three partially covered turnout runs with a fourth run for loading/unloading animals from the trailer and sorting into the 3 paddocks.  There is a nice feed room plus loft and a protected alley for feeding animals without needing to enter their stall.

The large riding arena measures 200’ x 80’ with a nice two rail pipe perimeter fence and power and water.  Just behind the arena is a third pond and just above the arena sits an adobe building (~900 sqft) with views across the ranch.  The building has many potential uses with power and water already established and just a few feet away sits the property’s fourth pond.

Water:

The diversity of the landscape and topography really makes this ranch special. 

2 live water creeks!!  The ranch encompasses both sides of the beautiful Misty Creek that flows along the southern edge of the ranch for ~1200 feet and into the strong flowing and dominate Town Creek that flows through the heart of Kerrville and into the Guadalupe River.  Enjoy ownership of both sides Town Creek for another ~800 feet!  This is an incredible opportunity to own both sides of 2 live water creeks and both having engineered damns to create beautiful water features!  There are huge pecan and oak trees everywhere and the lake on Town Creek is more than a football field long and holds bass, catfish and sunfish!

 And having these ancient towering cypress trees on your property is an exceedingly rare feature just not available on many properties.  This “creek bottom” is incredibly beautiful; you feel like you are in your own state park!  There are 3 water well on the ranch that supply the main home, the barn and pens and the lower barns on Goat Creek Road.  The ranch is high fenced on 2 sides and has good fencing along the entire perimeter.

Land

The trees at Misty Valley are amazing.  Both creeks and the valley pasture are covered with towering pecan trees that are truly beautiful.  The topography is impressive for a ranch this size with ~85 feet of elevation change.  And there are numerous viewpoints on the ranch including from the house across the valley pasture to the Town Creek lake, from the riding arena down Misty Valley and from the Adobe building across the entire ranch and valley.

There are 2 live water creeks and 4 ponds with waterfalls at the two dams.  There are also two improved grass pastures.  The creek bottoms are truly breathtaking and offers all kids of recreational opportunities from family picnics to nature walks to fishing and hunting.  As you exit Misty Creek the land rises and has been shaped to build the excellent for the equestrian facilities.

Wildlife/Hunting:

Whitetail and axis deer along with Rio Grande turkey call the ranch home while bass, catfish and sunfish can be caught in the ponds.
