LOCATION: The impressive Circle Bar Blue Ranch is located in south-central Gonzales County, less than 5 miles south of the historic town of Gonzales. The front gate is a 75 minute drive from both Austin and San Antonio with Houston being about 2 hours to the east. Entering through the ranch's custom front gates you are welcomed by a pastoral feeling courtesy of grassy, oak-studded hilltops that descend into dark blue lakes. Overlooking this manicured front pasture is an envelope of first-class building improvements consisting of a ranch office, main home, horse barn with apartment and a covered arena. Main Home The 2500 sqft 3 bedroom/3 bath main home is a modern farmhouse that is comfortable and cowboy chic while possessing a subtle elegant flair. The home was built and designed by an accomplished interior designer whose skill and talents are showcased within its charming walls. Perhaps the most interesting feature of the home is the formal dining room. It was crafted from a grain bin that was moved to the ranch and is now attached to the house. It boasts a massive iron chandelier salvaged from a Philadelphia train station complimented with Venetian Crystal sconces. The large master bedroom and bath create a comfortable retreat and include a soaking tub and steam shower. Horse Barn w/ Apartment Centrally located on the top of a hill is where you will find the well-planned, site built horse barn with 20+ concrete stalls. Multiple large roll-up bay doors and wide drive-through aisles allow for a spacious feel. There is also a centrally located tack room as well as a dedicated vet area with a hot/cold horse washing station. Attached to the barn is a +/-1,000 sqft 1 bedroom/1 bath apartment designed and constructed in a similar fashion as the main home and finished out entirely with reclaimed materials which gives the space a western elegant aura. Arena Adjacent to the barn are cattle pens and a covered cutting horse training arena designed and currently utilized by a Hall of Fame cutting horse trainer. You can rest assure knowing no detail was overlooked in the thoughtful design of this facility. LAND: This area of Gonzales County is not typically known for its topography, yet traveling the ranch from one end to the other you will experience nearly 100 feet of elevation change. Cottle Creek traverses the ranch creating an expansive canyon that serves as prime, un-touched wildlife habitat. Throughout the Cottle Creek valley you will also find an impressive array of towering hardwoods including Live Oak, Post Oak, Burr Oak, Cedar Elm, Pecan and Sycamore. There is over 45 acres of grass field on the ranch that could easily be put in hay production or row-crop production. Currently these fields produce a remarkable amount of under-utilized forage without any application of weed killer or fertilizer. Having been rarely hunted in the past 20 year the Circle Bar Blue is teeming with wild game. A mature native whitetail buck in excess of 150 b/c has recently been spotted along with, hogs, bobcat and other native species in huntable quantities. There are a total of 4 lakes/ponds on the ranch, several of which are stocked with bass. The Circle Bar Blue Ranch has over 1.5 miles of Guadalupe River frontage.
