This ranch and custom home are located in Concan in the Heart of the Frio Canyon and Texas Hill Country. This rare find offers breathtaking views, terrific hunting and excellent privacy while resting a mere stone’s throw from the Frio River and all the amenities the Concan area has to offer.
At 437 acres this ranch has over a mile of paved frontage on Hwy 83, and its other boundaries are bracketed by large properties and infamous hill country ridges providing a degree of privacy one might never expect to find so close to town. Shut-in Creek meanders through the interior of the property for well over a mile in route to joining with the Frio River a short distance downstream. This creek which flows in times of regular rain is the centerpiece of the ranch and is lined by enormous centuries old Live-Oaks and numerous other varieties of trees. The ranch is well watered with two shallow wells (one electric and one solar) and one Trinity Aquifer well capable of producing large volumes of water. A lined stock tank is serviced by any of the three wells.
There is a 4,053 sf custom built home on the property that can also be accessed both through the ranch as well as via Mariposa Ave from River Road. HOA membership provides access to a private park on the Frio River. The home has 4 bedrooms each with an en-suite bath, and an additional bedroom or office. There are two living rooms, a spacious master bath, fireplace, heated swimming pool, hot tub, and outdoor bar and grill. There is an attached 3-car garage as well as metal barn and workshop. Concan Water Supply provides water to the house and a separate water well is used for irrigation.
Recreation, hunting and game opportunities are endless. In addition to whitetail deer and other native species to the area, axis, sika, fallow and red deer have all been seen on the property in recent years. Countless resources have been dedicated to cedar removal and native habitat restoration resulting in a mix of open fields, native brush, and endless oak mottes throughout. There is more than 400 feet of elevation change within the boundaries of the property, and the extensive road system allows access to all areas of the ranch. A lookout at it’s peak elevation of 1680 feet provides 360 degree views of the entire canyon below. It is truly breathtaking to say the least.
The ranch has a conservation easement held by the City of San Antonio Aquifer Protection Program. Currently that program protects over 150,000 acres in the recharge zones of the Edwards Aquifer, including several large ranches in the immediate vicinity of Concan. These easements place certain restrictions on future development and ensure that the properties protected by them will remain part of the treasured Texas Hill Country. The home sits on just under 6 acres that is not included in the conservation easement. The balance of the ranch retained several development rights carefully negotiated to allow up to 3 building envelopes and for it to be divided in up to 3 separate tracts should a future owner desire. More detailed information will be provided to qualified buyers.
