Seco Springs

Posted on: December 11th, 2018 by Morris Killough

Located between Utopia and Tarpley at the headwaters of the beautiful Seco Valley, one the most private and scenic areas of Bandera County, Seco Springs Ranch is truly one of the crown jewels of the Texas hill country and arguably the most scenic live water ranch available in today's market. The ranch offers county road access, end of the road privacy, large neighbors, excellent accommodations and infrastructure, beautiful live water, spring fed lakes, exceptional hunting and fishing, a great road system, spring-fed canyons, hardwood lined hills, sheer limestone bluffs and outcroppings, elevated plateaus and wide fertile oak studded valleys.
Seco Springs Ranch is nothing short of incredible and is one the most unique and diverse ranches anywhere. The highlight of the ranch is the expansive main Seco Valley and nearly a mile of beautiful spring fed Seco Creek. The central valley offers incredible views of the surrounding hills, two fabulous deep spring fed lakes, swimming holes, shallow crystal clear pools and gushing waterfalls. The year round live water recreation of the property is incredible with world class fishing, tubing, kayaking, canoeing, swimming and waterfowl hunting. There are at least a dozen hardwood lined canyons that all feed into the main Seco Valley, many of these canyons have live springs and spring fed creeks that could be improved to add many more live water features throughout the property. Improvements on the ranch include a 4000+ square foot lodge featuring 5 bedrooms and loft, foreman's house, 2 single room worker's cabins, office, equipment barn/ shop, 3 water wells, working pens and horse arenas. The main lodge is located on a point overlooking the upper spring fed lake and provides a fabulous entertainment area with quick access to the water.
The ranch offers an excellent mix of hills and bottom land and the terrain of the ranch varies from steep majestic rock bluffs to gently sloping hills, elevated plateaus with amazing views and multiple wide valleys with deep soiled bottom land. The ranch offers an excellent 15 + mile road system throughout the ranch that allows easy access to all areas of the property and a single tour of the ranch provides a buyer with an almost overwhelming display of terrain, views and unique features one would want in a Hill Country Ranch. The valleys and canyon walls are absolutely covered with several varieties of hardwoods including Cedar Elm, Live Oak, Spanish Oak, BlackWalnut, Blue Oak, Madrone and Wild Cherry. The heart of the ranch itself literally is an oasis and a wildlife sanctuary nestled in the Seco Valley, surrounded by majestic hills and incredible limestone bluffs. Nearly directly in the center of the ranch the owners have constructed a lookout deck on one of the highest peaks. The wooden deck offers a rock fire pit and overlooks nearly the entire ranch offering spectacular views of the Seco Valley and surrounding hill country for 20+ miles, there is only one word that can describe this and that is unbelievable.
The hunting on the ranch is exceptional with the whitetail herd being under strict management for the past 20 years and only management deer have been harvested on the ranch the last several years. The owners have strategically placed 14 blinds and feeders throughout the ranch to effectively and safely hunt the ranch. With the completion of new game fencing recently(2015) the owners have introduced several dozen exotics onto the ranch including Axis, Fallow, Black Buck, Oryx and Sheep. Sika and Aoudad are also part of the exotics herd along with large numbers of Turkey, wild Hogs, Varmints, Quail, Dove and Ducks. A complete list of exotics will be provided to interested parties. The bird habitat and population is amazing and nearly every species in the hill country nests or has been seen on the ranch. The beautiful rock bottom creeks and spring fed lakes also provide habitat for large numbers of waterfowl during certain times of the year. Seco Springs Ranch is absolutely one of the most unique and beautiful ranches in the Texas Hill Country, only a personal visit and tour will tell the whole story. Call Morris Killough 210-415-9850
