The 205+ acre Menem Ranch is located halfway between Dripping Springs and Wimberley in Driftwood, Texas. It is currently being used as a family retreat with an abundance of recreational facilities that include fishing, boating, hunting, relaxing and enjoying nature. This ranch is located in the Dripping Springs school district and outside of the Dripping Springs ETJ.
Two man-made lakes are the prime attraction of this ranch. One is approximately 15 acres in size and the other is approximately 4 acres. The depth of the water in the large lake is approximately 35 feet deep at the dam. The 15 acre large lake has a two story boat dock that has 4 boat slips. The boat dock, fishing pier and boat ramp area is a great place for fishing and the second story observation deck provides for a panoramic view of the surrounding area. The small lake serves as a drainage catch basin to protect the big lake from silt.
There is a one bedroom one bath main cabin with full kitchen facilities. The cabin has a covered veranda that overlooks the lake and provides for a gathering area for picnics, parties and get togethers. In addition, there are also two other cabins with bunk beds that can accommodate 4 people in each cabin with bathroom facilities. These amenities are serviced by a treated water system from the lake and sewer service is provided by an aerobic septic system.
Other improvements include a pole barn, a feed shed, numerous game and fish feeders as well as deer blinds.
Access to the cabins and lakes is provided by a 1 1/2 mile long paved interior road way that starts at the entrance and circles the interior of the ranch crossing both dams. The roadway provides for a good hike and bike trail.
The ranch has 3,056 feet of road frontage on Ranch Road 12. There is also 3 phase electrical service. A non-exclusive paved access roadway easement provides access to the eastern part of the ranch at a cost of $1,000.00 per year, per entrance.
Currently the ranch is under a 1-d-1 Wildlife exemption, with 2016 taxes totaling $5,314.00. The current owners have 100% of the mineral rights, 100% of the executive rights and 100% of the water rights. There are no Deed Restrictions on the property, and the ranch is not in any ETJ or Water District.
The lakes contain bass and perch, and for the hunter there are deer, ducks, turkey, feral hogs as well as other small critters.
The ranch is currently used as a weekend retreat, but the potential for other uses may include a corporate retreat, senior citizens development or even business potential along the Ranch Road 12 frontage.
