Head Mountain Ranch covers approximately 266 acres. It has become very hard to find quality land this size within reasonable distance of major metropolitan services. Head Mountain Ranch is located off Hwy 32 between Fischer and Blanco in Comal County, very near the Blanco County line. It’s the best of all worlds when you are so close to Canyon Lake, Blanco, New Braunfels, Wimberley, Johnson City, and an easy drive from Austin or San Antonio. Specifically, the ranch gate is approximately 9 miles from Hwy 281 at Blanco and 15 miles from Wimberley. Austin Bergstrom or San Antonio airports are each about an hour away for convenient travel. The ranch has approximately 180 feet of frontage along Hwy 32 with the main body of the property off the highway to provide a feeling of privacy and seclusion and without the highway noise that normally comes with being on the highway.
Head Mountain Ranch has an incredibly diverse topography featuring the second highest peak in the area and also lush fields and groves. The term rare cannot be over used in describing this property because it is absolutely rare to find this kind of diverse land. The main feature and namesake is Head Mountain which provides amazing 360 degree breathtaking views. From this rare hilltop, you can see the lighthouse tower (almost 25 miles) away in Johnson City looking north and Canyon Lake looking south, along with other famous view landmarks such as the Twin Sister’s Peaks. This majestic tabletop sits at approximately 1,440 feet elevation and is only outdone by sister peak Big Head Mountain located nearby. If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind home site that will dazzle, then this is it!
Most high elevation tracts with big views also come with rocky terrain and less desirable soils. Not this one! Dropping off of Head Mountain you will be amazed at the quality of deep fertile soils and lush pastures. There are approximately 50 acres in improved pastures with Klein Grass, Bluestem, native, and some Coastal grass. Even during the current drought these fields are lush and green. You will also find that from just about anywhere in the fields you will have breathtaking views.
You will not see many properties with as many quality trees. Head Mountain Ranch has an abundance of giant heritage oaks and fascinating Cedar Elm groves that create a special beauty. The current owners have done just the right amount of clearing to show off the potential. The fields are clean of cedar regrowth and numerous oak mots have been cleared of cedar. A grove of giant Cedar Elms has been partially cleared of undergrowth and provides a magical feel of Sherwood Forest! There is one small pond (currently dry) and multiple dry creek beds that are believed to provide excellent surface water or lake development opportunities.
Improvements: There is a +/- 5,000 sf (100x50) ranch headquarters barn, a new metal building built as good as they come. The barn features a 16x50 covered RV pad with hookups and 12’ deep wrap around porches. The barn has designed living quarters and roughed out plumbing/electrical for the new owner to finish as desired. This will make for an exquisite and functional Barndominium of around 1,700sf living quarters with 1 bedroom and 1 ½ bath or more with utilizing the second floor. Additional concrete was added to support a masonry fireplace if desired. This design can be easily utilized or modified by the new owners as preferred.
There is a new Aerobic Septic system with an 800-gallon main tank and 500-gallon drop tank for second building area or RV Hookup. The water well has been updated recently (2022) with a super high quality filtration system including Whole House Reverse Osmosis and UV Light Filtration. The system includes a 2,500-gallon water storage tank.
The land has been improved with new crushed rock roads and selective clearing for a “park like” atmosphere. There is presently a Wildlife tax Exemption in place for lower taxes. Multiple potential building areas have been analyzed with tree surveys and soil analyses. Current owners are offering to pass along these studies as well as the current Wildlife Management plan to help the new owners. A new boundary survey is currently being completed and will be provided by the sellers.
Did we mention that this is a rare find?!! The current owners have shown this land a lot of love so in addition to the outstanding views, location, improvements, and landscape, this property offers a unique spiritual quality that is tranquil and settling. You will feel it when you enter the gate and you must see this property in person to fully appreciate the abundance of qualities. Come quickly before this one is gone!
