$30,447,000 • 1,791 acres
The ± 1,791-acre Super A Ranch, the largest live water ranch for sale in Kerr County, is located just 10 miles southwest of Kerrville, providing high-style ranch living with easy access to Hill Country hospitality and convenience.
Crystalline water, cypress-lined creek banks and groves of pecan and walnut trees, with hidden clearings that have been maintained in a beautiful park-like condition, bedeck the landscape. The land includes both spectacular hills and open pastures; all easily accessible by good ranch roads.
Water, water, everywhere. Numerous springs bubble up from the ground, feeding streams that eventually flow into Turtle Creek. Several impoundments, including one 5-acre lake stocked with bass, deliver abundant surface water as well as recreational opportunities such as fishing, swimming and paddling. (Several small boats will transfer with the sale.) Two working windmills tap into the groundwater below offering additional water for wildlife or livestock.
Plentiful water means plentiful wildlife. In addition to native white-tailed deer that have been improved by genetic introduction and selective harvest, the high-fenced ranch is home to turkeys, elk, fallow deer (white, chocolate and spotted), axis deer, sika deer, blackbuck antelope and aoudad sheep.
The amenities at the Super A were designed to celebrate the outdoors. A spring-fed swimming pool and waterfall, known as The Grotto, is the perfect way to while away warm afternoons and summer evenings. A state-of-the-art outdoors kitchen as well as a large outdoor fireplace and a fire pit set the stage for casual dining with the ultimate ambiance.
The expansive, elevated cherrywood deck that stretches across the back of the main house provides a seamless transition between outdoor and indoor living. The 3-bedroom/3.5-bath house combines native limestone accents, rich wood trim, large windows and high ceilings to create an easy living home that is refined and welcoming. The master bedroom has views of a small spring-fed lake.
In addition, a 3-bedroom/2-bath guest house with a large dining area and great room gives friends and extended family their privacy. Everyone can gather on the spacious back porch to watch wildlife graze on the nearby hills.
A large game room, complete with a pool table, Air Hockey, foosball and more, offers indoor fun as well as additional accommodations. A bedroom and kitchen round out the standalone space.
The wildlife infrastructure includes 8 deer blinds, 8 corn feeders, and 6 protein feeders, which will convey with the sale, and a processing shed with both a walk-in cooler and walk-in freezer. There are also two equipment barns (40’x130’ and 25’x100’), a horse barn with stalls and livestock pens, so it would be simple to add a livestock element or to convert to a livestock operation.
The Super A, carved from the original Lacy Ranch, is a special place with a special story. Home to the Lacy Oak and birthplace of the Blue Lacy, the Texas state dog, each owner has added a new chapter in the ranch’s history. Write your life here. Leave your mark on the land because it will surely leave its mark on you.
