Ranch Road 12

554+/- Acres    ·    Hays County, San Marcos, TX    ·    $5,900,000 (Asking Price) - SOLD
554+/- Acres situated in booming Hays County! A rare opportunity, this is the last ranch of its size in the area. Positioned on Ranch Road 12 halfway between Wimberley and San Marcos. This is a raw canvas for the new buyer to sculpt into a legacy ranch—the historic Ingram Ranch (Over 4,000 acres) borders for nearly 1.5 miles on the east side. Ranch Road 12 is the northern boundary with over 2,800 feet of frontage and two entrance gates. 
Habitat:  Scattered with large live oak trees and oak motts. Native and improved grasses can be found throughout the ranch. Portions of the ranch are excellent cattle pasture with areas around the creek having large boulders with scattered Elms, oaks cedars. 
Water: Sink creek (wet weather creek) traverses the property from the West to the East. There are two ponds on the property with multiple other sites available to build new water features. There is a hand-dug water well near the old homestead and an electric water well located near the middle of the property. Water wells in the area range from 10-80 gallons per minute. All water rights will be conveyed to the buyer commercial and residential. 
Wildlife: This property has not been hunted for years; you will see wildlife each time you visit the property early in the morning or late in the evenings. Deer, turkeys, hogs, dove, and ducks call this property home. The neighbor is over 4000 acres and doesn’t seem to utilize their ranch for hunting. 
 Location:  The ranch is located in the heart of the red hot Texas ranch market. Ideally located between Wimberley and San Marcos with easy access from 2 entrances off ranch road 12. 
8 miles from Wimberley 
5 miles from Texas State University 
6 miles from San Marcos 
47 miles from downtown Austin 
63 miles from downtown San Antonio
Minerals: The seller believes in owning 100% of the minerals and intends to convey all they own. There isn’t any production in the area, but how many ranches are available to purchase with 100% of the minerals!
Price: The most aggressively priced property currently on the market in Hays County. 
Broker Comments: What a rare find in a great location! We have found multiple arrowheads on the ranch while exploring for the perfect photo opportunity. There is a rock wall built by early settlers on the property; we believe it to be over 150 years old.  As you enter the ranch, the history, and opportunity to own a ranch of this magnitude in this location is overwhelming. This might be your only chance to own a ranch of this size on Ranch Road 12 between Wimberly and San Marcos. This area is being dissected for development, and 550 plus acre ranches do not exist.
