848+- Acres - King Fisher Ranch
Vanderpool - Bandera County
Located near Vanderpool, one of the most desirable and unspoiled areas of the Texas Hill Country, this new listing is one of the most incredible ranches available anywhere in the Texas Hill Country. The Ranch is minutes from Lost Maples Park, thirty minutes to Bandera, just over an hour to Fredericksburg and 50 minutes to Kerrville. This Ranch has been in the same family since the 1970's and up until now has been used as a recreational and working ranch. The highlight of the Ranch is 2000+- feet of both sides of fabulous Cypress lined Sabinal River frontage with a grandfathered dam, creating one of the most unique recreational spots anywhere. The varying terrain is amazing and King Fisher Ranch is truly one of the most usable and scenic ranches available in this area of the hill country: perfect for a cattle, horse, whitetail or exotic game operation. The Ranch offers the near perfect mix of flat to sloping bottom land, spring fed canyon, deep fertile bottoms with adequate soils for cultivation, hay or food plots, steep majestic hardwood lined hills, limestone bluffs and outcroppings and large open valleys covered in huge Live Oaks. The canyons and hill sides are home to Spanish Oak, Walnut, Blue Oak, Cedar Elms, Wild Cherry, Madrone, Sumac, Persimmon and Sycamore. One of the highlights of the ranch is the exceptional interior road system the owners have created over many years that provide easy access to virtually every part of the ranch. The road system is in excellent condition. Most of the ranch is easily accessible by 2 WD vehicle and a single tour of the 16+ miles of road system is like a safari, offering a buyer breathtaking views of the Ranch, the Sabinal Canyon, Mill Creek Valley and of the surrounding Hill Country. Words and pictures do not come close. Additionally, the multi generational owners have selectively cleared large amounts of Cedar from the property, providing excellent habitat for not only Livestock but also for the large numbers of Whitetail, Turkey, Hogs and occasional free ranging Exotics including Blackbuck and Aoudad. The extensive Cedar clearing on the property has made it one of the cleanest ranches available.
