Indian Lookout Ranch

Medina County, Texas


210.02 Arces

SIZE & LOCATION: 210.02 ACRES, Medina County. This ranch is located only 35 miles west of San Antonio loop 1604 and is approximately 2 miles south of DHanis. Access is approximately 2 miles south of Hwy 90 down CR 5229 to a 30 foot legal easement approximately 30 ft. Wide and mile long to gate of the ranch. Very convenient to San Antonio and very private!

DESCRIPTION: Same family since the 1850s! The property was originally purchased by one of the owners ancestors who were one of the original Alsatian settlers that traveled from DHanis to California for the gold rush then came back and purchased the subject property. According to the owner there are historic Comanche Indian campgrounds along the creek and a hilltop Indian lookout with a prominent site believed to be an Indian burial ground. Excellent deer habitat with very nutritious brush such as guajillo and guayacan and a fantastic dove/white wing corridor. Plenty of game with hogs and trophy Whitetail. The ranch has never been leased for hunting and very little hunting by the family. A very good creek drainage runs through this property and makes for excellent lake habitat. There is one small water tank located on the property which owner says holds water year round. Its stocked with bass and catfish and offers excellent dove hunting. There is excellent potential to build a large lake with an elevated building site overlooking the lake. There are scattered Live Oaks, large Mesquite trees, and some very large Elms along the creek bottom. Portions of the creek bottoms have forest like attributes with stretches of large thick hardwoods that make for excellent turkey roosts. Over 25 acres have been cleared and reclaimed and planted with native Texas grasses. There is a small old cabin that would need some updating. The fences are in fair condition and hold cattle which help maintain the ag-exemption. Approximately half of the ranch is low-fenced and half the ranch is high-fenced. The owner believes he owns 25% of the minerals that will convey with the ranch. There are no oil or gas leases on this ranch or any oil wells nearby. There is currently no water well and electricity is available from the north side from the adjoining neighbor. Water is possibly available from West Medina Water Supply approximately mile away. This ranch has the perfect combination of hilltop building sites with views up to 1,000 feet elevation and some very good fertile bottoms with huge trees and deep soil. Last year's taxes were approximately $320. There are no easements through this ranch and mostly large neighbors border this ranch.

GAME: Whitetail deer, turkey, quail, dove, and hogs.

PRICE: $3,400 per acre or $714,000

COMMENTS: This ranch would make an excellent hunting retreat with great brush, creek bed and pond, and very convenient to San Antonio with extreme privacy!
