Located just outside of Boerne, this southern Kendall County ranch will make an extraordinary home place, not to mention its investment appeal. With two of the high points in the area (both over 1600’) located on the property, the ranch commands spectacular views in most all directions including the Spring Creek valley to the southeast and toward the north: the Sabinas Creek valley and the greater Guadalupe River valley. Those views coupled with fantastic trees and great wildlife in an incredible location make the Lazy M Ranch one to take a closer look at.
Location: The ranch is located on FM 474 north of Boerne; only 4 miles from Boerne High School.
Layout, Topography & Terrain: This ranch is generally rectangular in shape in a west/east fashion. The central portion of the ranch sits at the higher elevations with lower elevations found along the southern, eastern and portions of the northern borders; no one will be looking down on you. The ranch has approximately 171 feet of relief with a high point at 1621 feet on Smith Hill and a low point at about 1450 feet in the northeast corner. The varied terrain coupled with the live oaks, red oaks, post oaks, junipers, cherries, agarita, native grasses, succulents and other flora typical of the Hill Country make this ranch feel much larger than the listed acreage.
Wildlife: Wildlife species that can be found on this ranch include white-tailed deer, feral hogs, other free ranging exotics, songbirds and varmints.
Improvements: The entry drive up to Smith Hill is paved and leads to the older ranch house that is still used periodically. The home has a wonderful patio overlooking the Spring Creek valley; also taking advantage of the southerly breezes. The headquarters area atop Smith Hill also has neat dog run style barn and several other outbuildings. The property is low fenced but a portion on the north perimeter is not fenced. There are numerous paths and trails throughout the ranch so much of the ranch is easily accessible.
Water: There are a couple of ponds; one on the southwest side of Smith Hill, and another more centrally located, providing water for wildlife and livestock. There is an existing water well that provides water service to the headquarters area as well as wildlife and livestock.
Electricity: Available and operational at headquarters location. Available elsewhere on property as well.
