1015 acres – Cord Springs Ranch
Vance Real County

Cord Springs Ranch is truly one of the most incredible live water properties to come onto the market in years. Located in Real County, approximately 12 miles NW of Leakey and 6 miles east of Vance on Jo Jan Van road, this secluded Hill Country Gem offers some of the most incredible live water and possibly the strongest springs available in the entire Texas hill country. The ranch is a combination of rugged hill tops, sprawling plateaus, fertile valleys and incredible hardwood lined canyons that provide habitat for the whitetail, turkey, hogs, aoudad and occasional exotics. Cord Springs Creek meanders for nearly 2 miles through the ranch offering beautiful rock bottom live water, gentle shallow pools, waterfalls, rapids and dozens of springs. The sheer limestone bluffs that line the watershed are incredible and provide some of the most amazing backdrops in the Real County. Just a half mile uphill hike from the original homestead are the huge springs that flow straight out of the sides of the limestone bluffs creating a series of the most incredible live water features ever seen in the Texas Hill Country. The springs send millions of gallons of cascading down a dozen waterfalls, limestone bottom rapids, deep swimming holes, over a manmade dam and eventually flows into Cord Springs Creek. At the site of the springs you can actually hear the roar from waterfalls in the underground caverns. The water from these springs was strong enough that the old times created a man made dam along the creek that was designed to divert water along a rock canal for irrigating crops in the fertile valley surrounding the original homestead. This property is truly a diamond in the rough waiting for right buyer. Words and pictures cannot describe the true beauty of this ranch, see for yourself. $6,500,000. call Morris 210-415-9850

The year round live water recreation of the property is incredible with world class fishing, tubing, kayaking, canoeing, swimming and waterfowl hunting.
