The Cold Smoke Ranch offers a very private, turnkey Hill Country ranch ready for the next steward to enjoy for hunting, wildlife viewing, star watching, hiking and other recreational pursuits! This ranch is accented by a custom home as well as a very nice managers home and a barn/shop. The ranch has both a high fenced pasture and a low fenced pasture. The high fenced pasture is managed for trophy white-tailed deer. Further enhancing the privacy of the ranch, several neighbors along the southern and eastern borders have restricted their lands and offer perpetual protection from extensive subdivision and development on those borders. Location: The ranch entrance is at the end of a well maintained easement road 2.85 miles east of FM 462. The turnoff on FM 462 is 7.9 driving miles from Tarpley and 18.3 driving miles from Hondo. The South Texas Regional Airport is located in Hondo. Also, the ranch is only 62 driving miles (1:10 hour drive time!) from San Antonio. Topography, Rangeland and Habitat: This scenic Hill Country ranch has approximately 300 feet of topographical relief with the highest point some 1,600 feet above sea level. The ranch benefits from 1.77 miles of the Twin Hollow wet weather creek and drainage plus 5 other unnamed drainages. While the ranch has plenty of topography, it is usable topography! The current owner has been strategically opening up areas of the ranch, creating edge and diversity benefitting wildlife. Typical of this part of the Hill Country, the habitat includes oak juniper woodlands with fantastic tree diversity including live oak, Spanish Oak, blue oak, cherry, cedar elms, walnut and Ashe juniper. Additionally, diverse brush species, succulents and native grasses also provide excellent habitat for wildlife. Wildlife and Hunting: The western 570+/- acres of the ranch are high fenced and are managed for trophy white-tailed deer. The owner took the native population down after his acquisition in 2014 and has been steadily developing the herd with periodic improved genetic releases, supplemental feeding, supplemental water and population management. The pasture is a movement qualified Class 1 Release site and the owner estimates the deer population in the high fence to be 75-80 animals at present. In the high fenced pasture there are 8 areas set up with a hunting blind, timed feeder and a protein feeder (and in most cases water). In addition to the white-tailed deer herd, the high fenced pasture is utilized or home to wild turkey, dove, feral hogs, a couple of Aoudad and other wildlife. The 380+/- acre low fence (note, the west and north perimeters are high fenced while the eastern and southern portions are low) pasture of the ranch is home to populations of white-tailed deer, turkey, dove, feral hogs, some additional free ranging exotics and other wildlife. This pasture has a couple of blinds and feeders as well. For the birders, this area is fantastic! Improvements: Situated overlooking Twin Hollow with protected views is the 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath custom home featuring an open floor plan kitchen/dining and living area with fireplace and custom interior rock work. The bedrooms are accessed via covered patios with 2 bedrooms on each side. Each bedroom has its own bath and HVAC unit for comfort. For entertaining and stargazing, there is a large patio off the back of the home with a fire pit; also perfect for morning coffee as the sun rises over the mountains. Views from the home are protected by virtue of the neighbors having placed conservation easements on their lands. A short distance away is the one bedroom (although currently used as an office a second room could be a bedroom as well) custom-built managers home and a nice equipment barn with shop and game cleaning area. In addition to the high fencing mentioned above (570+/- acres enclosed and two sides on 380+/- acres), there are good UTV roads throughout the ranch. On top of a high point on the ranch, the current owner has built a rock patio with a fire pit to enjoy sunsets with forever views of the surrounding countryside. Water: In addition to wet weather creek flows, the ranch has 3 operating water wells with one electric submersible (along with storage) servicing the improvements and a couple of troughs, a windmill providing water to several wildlife troughs and another submersible in the low fenced pasture used with a generator to fill a large pila that flows into a wildlife water feature. In addition, the owner maintains several other water stations throughout the high fenced pasture and there is one guzzler. History: In A.J. Sowells book from 1900, Early Settlers and Indian Fighters of Southwest Texas, which is a recommended read for anyone interested in first hand history of the broader area, he recounts the story of the Cow Camp Massacre that occurred near the Cold Smoke Ranch in 1866. Three boys were camping on a bluff over the Hondo Creek and gathering some stray livestock. An attack by a group of eight indians resulted in one death, one capture and one escapee, August Rothe. The Rothe family has deep roots in Medina County, dating back to their arrival in Castroville in 1854, and portions of the ranch were originally patented to Louis Rothe, August Rothes brother. Area Attractions: A quick drive from the ranch is the quaint community of Tarpley home to Mac and Ernies, known across Texas and beyond for serving up some of the finest gourmet cuisine to be foundon paper plates! A short distance to the south is Hondo, Texas, that has all the necessary supplies, groceries (including HEB) and restaurants, not to mention world famous dove hunting opportunities!

Two Creeks Ranch, ±727. 9 acres located just 30 minutes west of San Antonio in Medina County, is a memory-making, live-water destination designed to make family, friends or business associates feel right at home in natural Texas. Three separate ranches were combined to create this wing-shooters paradise that has been used as a corporate retreat to entertain up to 24 people per weekend. It is equally suited as a private family getaway or a rental property for gatherings such as family reunions or workshops. Because of its diversity, the ranch can also generate income from wildlife and agriculture. When guests enter the simple, but elegant front gate on County Road 451 they are struck by the oak-lined, chip-sealed Knippa stone driveway and the flanking irrigated pecan orchard with more than 500 productive trees. Landscaping throughout was designed and installed by the late Marc Tellepson and the late Mark Scioneaux, both of Houston’s famed Tellepson’s Landscaping Company. By the time guests arrive at the main compound featuring the 2 dogtrot lodges that reflect Texas’ pioneer heritage and the adjoining renovated barn and primary gathering space known as the Party Barn, they know they’re somewhere special. The Land Nestled in an ecological transition zone, Two Creeks, as the name implies, offers the beautiful live water and legacy oaks of the Hill Country and the varied brush that marks superlative wildlife habitat in South Texas. In addition to majestic live oaks, the ranch is shaded by native pecan trees in the bottomlands of Hondo and Verde Creeks and old-growth bull mesquite throughout. The Water The creeks border the ranch on two sides. Verde Creek, which is a year-round creek, courses through the ranch for about one-half mile on the east, providing private access to both banks. Hondo Creek runs along the south border for more than 1/2 mile. A 7-acre lake that measures about 22 feet at its deepest point is stocked with bass, perch and forage fish. It is peanut-shaped with a jutting peninsula, which maximizes bank frontage and allows for plenty of angling fun. In case guests prefer to swim, carefully stacked native rocks create the perfect place to launch into the lake. Groundwater is also plentiful. Two Creeks Ranch has four water wells: one is an Edwards Aquifer irrigation well that supplies the two center-pivots; one is a high-flow domestic well that can support irrigation; and the other two are domestic wells. The Edwards Aquifer well and one domestic well are new; the two other wells recently have been rebuilt. Rights to 60 acre-feet of Edwards Aquifer water transfers with sale of the ranch. The Production Each center pivot covers between 50 and 60 acres. One tract is currently planted in Coastal Bermuda to grow horse-quality, revenue-producing hay. The other pivot is planted with sunflowers to attract doves for the celebratory hunts that have been prime offerings of the ranch. The crops could be easily switched to other agriculture products such as corn, cotton or sorghum, depending on the owner’s goals. The Wildlife While Two Creeks has been managed primarily for doves, whitetail deer, feral hogs, free-ranging exotics and a variety of varmints, small game and non-game species call the low-fenced ranch home. The ranch includes facilities that allow for the handling and release of quail, chukar partridges and pheasants. The Lifestyle Guests can sharpen their shooting skills and pass an enjoyable afternoon at the 5-stand skeet range outfitted with 6 movable trap houses. Once the smoke has cleared, they can congregate at the nearby Gun Room, a ±945-square foot gathering space that includes a wet bar, drink coolers, a 72-inch tv as part of the indoor sitting area, gun lockers, WiFi and a built-in sound system. For those who prefer to be outdoors, an ±1,850-square-foot covered porch area, located between the Gun Room and the skeet range, is the perfect spot. Guests can sit in the shade of two ancient live oaks as they enjoy conversation and a cool breeze. Accommodations A set of two identical ±3,130-square-foot dogtrot lodges, crafted from reclaimed and washed barnwood epitomize the clean country style that defines Two Creeks and serve as the main compound’s focal point. Unlike their historical Texas predecessors, the dogtrots are enclosed. Each lodge, outfitted with WiFi, a built-in sound system and wood burning fireplace, sleeps up to 12 people. The spacious porches, on front and back, make it easy to take the conversation outdoors. The downstairs encompasses ±2,072 square feet and includes 4 bedrooms with 2 double beds, a coffee bar, tv and a private bath with heated floor. The upstairs features 2 king suites with a coffee bar, tv and a private bath with heated floor. A short walk down a crushed granite path bordered with concrete brings guests to the ±11,600-square-foot Party Barn. Crafted from an existing barn, the Party Barn combines entertainment and dining space with storage and work space under one roof. The dining hall and the state-of-the-art, custom chef’s commercial kitchen encompass about 2,000 square feet and can accommodate up to 50 guests for special events. The mesquite-topped bar is set off by the shiplap walls adorned with metal touches reminiscent of modern farmhouse style. The interior of the Party Barn also includes 2 big screen tvs, shuffleboard, video golf and Buck Hunter as well as self-serve drink coolers, WiFi, a built-in sound system and two restrooms. An outdoor pass-through transitions into a ±3,600-square-foot work barn, which includes a gym and loft storage area. In addition, there are three small apartments: the ±180-square-foot bunk room has 4 bunkbeds and a private bath; the ±216-square-foot apartment, known as Joe’s Room, has a queen bed and a private bath; and the ±430-square-foot “downstairs room” has 2 queen beds and a private bath. Because a party is even better outdoors, the Party Barn has a ±3,000-square-foot covered porch shaded by Mexican sycamores. The porch has a built-in sound system, a tv, large outdoor fans, a fire pit and an outdoor bar with an ice machine. Two Creeks’ second compound, with two homes and a large storage barn, is just a short drive to the west over improved ranch roads. The newly renovated, two-story Casa Verde House encompasses ±2,000 square feet with the bonus of a wraparound porch. The downstairs is dedicated to fun with a wet bar and shuffleboard. It also includes a restroom. The upstairs features a full kitchen and laundry room as well as a king suite with a private bath and bedroom with a queen bed and 2 doubles. A full bath completes the upstairs. The nearby 3-bedroom/2-bath Ranchero House, a traditional ranch-style home, features a front porch as well as a screened porch. A kitchen office, laundry room, covered carport and detached game room round out the space. Infrastructure The ±5,900-square-foot Maintenance Barn, located in proximity to the main compound, is the site of the covered game cleaning station as well as the walk-in refrigerator and freezer. It also includes restrooms and additional storage. The 800-square-foot Laundry Building is conveniently situated within easy reach of the dogtrot lodges and Party Barn. Despite its utilitarian purpose, the stone building is one of the ranch’s most beautiful. The main compound also has ±3,000 square feet of covered parking. The ranch driveway is chip-sealed Knippa stone; all of the other ranch roads are caliche or improved, built-up dirt roads. The ±22,500-square-foot Hangar Barn, made from a converted airplane hangar and located at the second compound, is a combination of individual storage rooms and loft storage rooms. All furnishings with the dogtrots as well as the entertainment area and commercial kitchen transfer with the sale. The Opportunity Two Creeks Ranch is the best of old and new Texas.
