With 1,300 feet of Pedernales River frontage, the Still Waters Ranch, located just 12 miles southwest of Fredericksburg, provides superlative river living in the heart of the Hill Country. It offers highly sought combination of seclusion and accessibility. The Gillespie County Airport is nearby.
The ±47-acre , low-fenced ranch, which fronts on White Oak Road, sits near the headwaters of the Pedernales, so the river runs clear, year-round. In places, the river flows into deep pools perfect for swimming and fishing, while in others it’s fast-moving and shallow ideal for wading or whiling away hot summer afternoons.
The river bank is lined with heritage oaks, pecan and elms. Along its course, sites for camping and picnicking, have been cleared, providing a peaceful respite and easy access to the sparkling water.
The land, which features native Hill Country habitat ranging from live oaks, cedar and mesquite to endemic grasses and wildlife-sustaining browse plants, rolls gently. The elevation rises about 100 feet from the river bottom to the highest point.
The ever-present water attracts white-tailed deer, wild turkey, feral hogs as well as free-ranging exotics. Hunting has been limited to family and friends. The current owner rotates cattle through the ranch to manage the vegetation and maintain the agriculture tax valuation.
The 3 bedroom/2 bath house finished with stucco encompasses ±1,850 square feet and overlooks the river valley. An open kitchen and dining area makes gathering easy. The living room is anchored by a fireplace. The metal roof was installed in 2020. A domestic well drilled to ±125 feet supplies the house.
For those who envision a dream house, the ranch features several suitable building sites.
In addition to the home, the ranch includes a 24’ x 60’ barn that offers both enclosed and open storage space. There are two more small outbuildings that have been used as chicken coops.
