WATER San Fernando Creek San Fernando Creek enters the West Tract along its northern boundary and flows to the east, generally bisecting each tract, and exits the property along the west boundary of the East Tract. San Fernando Creek is seasonal and will typically have stronger water flow in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. Gorgeous, mature Live oak and Pecan trees line the banks on both sides. The creek bed consists of decomposed granite sand with a striking pinkish hue and is dotted with scattered granite outcroppings along its course. There are multiple locations along the creek with deeper pools that are fed by springs and these spots generally hold water during much of the year. Generally, the creek bed is 200’ to 300’ in width, but does expand up to 500’ in certain areas. The creek runs for a total of 6,865’ or 1.30 miles through the property. The West Tract (277.29 ac) has 3,215’ of creek frontage, with roughly 76-ac on the north side of the creek and 201-ac on the south side. The East Tract (281.11 ac) has 3,650’ of creek frontage, with roughly 189-ac on the north side of the creek and 92-ac on the south side. Ponds & Windmill Water Wells There are four (4) ponds on the ranch; two (2) on the West Tract and two (2) on the East Tract. The West Tract ponds are 0.25 ac and 1.50 ac in size at full pool. Both ponds sit on the southside of San Fernando Creek. The East Tract ponds are 0.10 ac and 1.50 ac in size at full pool. The smaller East Tract pond is on the north side of San Fernando Creek and sits adjacent to a water well pumped by a windmill. The larger pond sits on the south side of San Fernando Creek. There is another water well serviced by a windmill that sits near the northeast corner of the East Tract. Both water wells have concrete water troughs and are fully operational. LAND & WILDLIFE The habitat throughout the property consists of an undulating, oak dominated savannah, interspersed with other native tree, brush, and grass species such as Texas persimmon, Mesquite, Cedar elm, Black hickory, Beebrush, and Little bluestem. Live oak is the primary and most visible oak species, with healthy amounts of Post oak, Blackjack oak, and Shinnery oak also present. The elevation ranges from 1,080’ along San Fernando Creek, up to 1,140’ to the north and south of the creek bed. Soils consist primarily of deep, fine and course sandy loam with very little rock. Llano County is known as the “Deer Capital of Texas” and boasts a county-level population density of over 290 white-tailed deer per thousand acres. Deer are abundant on the ranch, but it is not overpopulated. The ranch has been very lightly grazed by livestock and the deer herd has been kept in check with the habitat, which provides excellent quality and quantities of forage below 6 feet, hiding and escape cover, and thermal cover. Other game species commonly seen on the property include Rio Grande turkey, mourning & white-wing doves, feral hogs, and occasionally Bobwhite quail. Other indigenous wildlife species such as migratory waterfowl, raptors, songbirds, various small mammals, and reptiles are also abundant and are commonly seen. IMPROVEMENTS There are no vertical improvements on the property. The east, west, and north boundaries are fenced and are in average condition. There is not north-south fence separating the West tract and the East tract. Good ranch roads provide interior access throughout the ranch. Electricity has been extended into the property on both tracts and is provided by CTEC.
