A UNIQUE TEXAS HILL COUNTRY PROPERTY! Equally distanced, less than an hour to either Austin and San Antonio, this high caliber, water property is totally game proofed fenced and contains a live spring with 3 significant lakes and multiple homes. A long deep valley flanked by tall hills traverses lengthwise through the center of the property providing excellent opportunities to impound water and live in total privacy. All lakes are stocked w/ bass, catfish and copper nose bluegil. The lakes are approx 10 ac., 3-4 ac and 1-2 acres. All are deep water, with depths as much as 30'.
The main entry road is paved for about a mile, from the main gate all the way up to the 2nd lake and beyond the primary improvements. Beyond this point the road becomes packed, crushed granite and is smooth enough to drive with a full drink in your hand for approx 3 miles as it climbs over 400', encircling the highest elevations at nearly 1800'. The 20-30 mile views are unparalleled and offer 360 degree panoramas. The ever-flowing, historic, Duncan Spring is at approx 1700' elevation and has maintained flow throughout the drought of the last few years. The lakes are full and this is amazing, considering the extreme conditions we have endured. All of the water for this private valley is sourced from the springs located within the boundaries of this property.
