Peaceful Valley Ranch

Acres: 342 +/- Acres

Location: Located off of FM 462 approximately 20 miles north of Hondo in Medina County, Texas.

Description: Peaceful Valley Ranch is conveniently located along FM 462 with more than a half-mile of road frontage. Entry to this spectacular ranch is through a massive iron front gate onto a paved drive which leads to a 4,000 +/- sqft, western elegant style stucco and cantera columned homestead with double portico entry. Terrain on the ranch is rolling and covered in an extraordinary variety of high protein brush species, huge Oak trees and blanketed with thick native grasses. This ranch has a diversity of rich, level field land up front, and heavily wooded rocky Hill Country topography of the mountain. The acreage is completely high-fenced along the perimeter, with brand new interior high-fence as well; the pasture area comprises 130 acres of improved klien grass. An amazing feature of this ranch is the 1000' elevation mountain behind the homes and shop area with fantastic 25-mile views from the top accessed by jeep, riding, and walking trails.

Wildlife: Wildlife on the ranch includes an abundance of turkey, dove, and introduced whitetail deer genetics. A nice pond stocked for fishing stays at a constant level and is located at the edge of the pastures in front of the home. The pond is also home to a variety of waterfowl.

Water: There are two wells on the property, one is approximately 485' deep with a new 1.5 HP pump and the second well is approximately 980' deep with a new 5 HP pump. These wells serve the two homes, several livestock, wildlife water troughs and the pond.

Improvements: The headquarters area is well planned and architecturally designed beginning with the main home that is 4BR/4.5BA. The home is tan colored stucco with a barrel tile roof, double thermal pane windows, along with two air-conditioning units programmed with individual thermostats for each bedroom. The home consists of a great room with white rock fireplace, beamed ceilings, huge dining area, custom lighting, tile floors, exercise room and office with a second fireplace and closet spaces galore. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, two sink areas, center island, breakfast bar and a double stove/oven cooking area beneath an arched white rock wall. A reverse osmosis water system handles all the kitchen water and a soft water system handles the remainder of the home. A full length tile and cantera columned porch wrap the entire rear of the home accentuating the spacious courtyard; the perimeter of the courtyard is enclosed by a four foot tall stucco wall and centered with a stone patio and a relaxing cantera stone fountain. This well designed outdoor entertaining expanse ties everything together for an enjoyable time spent with family and friends under the south Texas skies.

A short walk from the backyard leads to a very modern and updated 3BR/2BA manufactured home for guest accommodations and/or family living quarters.

A 30x40' shop and tack room is accessed via two roll-up doors and walk-thru door; electric is services by 50 amp outlets.

There are also two 30 amp and one 50 amp outlets outside the backyard area which provide power to the mobile home in addition to providing handy hook-ups for RVs. There are four electric meters on the property for the entry gate, the home, the mobile home and the well & shop.

A nice arrangement of cattle pens is located between and behind the pastures; it is complete with a sorting pen and livestock chute.

Remarks: The ranch delivers a good mixture of open improved pastures and grasslands with gently rolling hills all nestled quietly within the native landscape.

Minerals: Owner is believed to own 100% executive rights and 15/16 mineral and royalty and will convey all owned.
