Located in one of the finest unspoiled islands of the Texas Hill Country is La Cima Ranch. This slice of Texas has a great mixture of conserved upland grasslands and hardwood lined hillsides awaiting their next steward. La Cima (“the summit”) provides breathtaking 360 degree views. To the north you have views across the hills toward Kerrville & Camp Verde and to the south you have never ending views of the Medina River valley.
Conservation Values: The owner of the parent Cloud 9 Ranch donated a conservation easement on this fabulous property (along with the rest of Cloud 9 Ranch) to help conserve this unique part of Texas, also known as the Bandera Pass and Elm Pass Conservation Areas. A conservation oriented owner of this ranch will be completely at home with this easement in place as it allows for necessary improvements, unhampered use and wide ranging recreational appeal.
Location: A set of high hills that divide the watershed of Guadalupe and Medina Rivers. The ranch is about one hour from San Antonio and equidistance of about 12 miles to each Kerrville, Comfort and Bandera. The property can be accessed from Cloud 9 Lane by either of two beautifully built rock wall entrances to the property with electric gates.
Improvements: The land is all but untouched; however, it does have a custom designed gazebo and custom fire pit. The copper roofed gazebo sits atop La Cima at approximately 1,952 feet in elevation, providing never ending views of the Medina River valley. Nearby, down a short rock path from the gazebo lies the hand crafted fire pit built with the local boulders by well known designer, Attie Jonker.
Terrain & Habitat: The ranch has a balanced mixture of uplands, sloped hillsides and canyons that provide great habitat for wildlife, space for recreational activities and homesites. Flora and fauna typical of the hill country are found on the ranch. Tree and species found on the ranch include numerous oak species, cherry, ash, walnut, madrone, and ashe juniper.
Wildlife: The ranch has populations of native wildlife including white-tailed deer and Rio Grande Turkey providing hunting and viewing opportunities alike. Importantly, this area is known for its songbirds which are sure to delight the bird watcher in the family.
Recreation: Recreational opportunities are endless including hiking, hunting, relaxing, wildlife viewing, horseback riding and stargazing.
