DESCRIPTION: This is a gorgeous ranch located in the YO Ranchlands 10,000 acre subdivision. There is a private electric gate on Highway 83 that provides paved access all the way to the ranch. The ranch is 40 minutes NW of Kerrville in a very sought-after ranch community. Most cedar has been removed from the property but there is still plenty of cover for wildlife. There is a well, electricity and a pond already in place. The property would be the perfect spot for a weekend cabin or an amazing setting for your dream home! This ranch is just beautiful!
LOCATION: The YO Ranchlands gate is located on the East side of Highway 83 just 14 miles north of the intersection of Highway 83 and Highway 41 in Kerr County. The property is located about 4 miles into the ranch on a paved road. The property has two gated entrances, one is on Camino Real Rd and the other is on Two Mill Rd.
IMPROVEMENTS: No structural improvements.
EQUIPMENT TO BE CONVEYED: None
WATER: 1 300’ submersible water well. There is also a very nice pond that is maintained by a water line that runs from the well.
TERRAIN/HABITAT: The terrain is mostly flat with good soil. You can see by the aerial that the ranch has very good cover. Oak trees are abundant and most of the cedar has been neatly cleared using trimmers and a Bobcat. There are lots of roads to travel throughout the ranch and the main road that connects the two gated entrances is improved with caliche base and crushed rock topping.
*WILDLIFE: The YO Ranch was one of the first to introduce exotic game into that part of the hill country. It is not uncommon to see blackbuck antelope, axis deer, whitetail deer, turkey, sika deer, fallow deer, hogs and the occasional aoudad. Ducks have also been known to visit the pond frequently during migration. While the animals are free ranging, the herd is maintained carefully. Annually, an animal census conducted by a professional third-party, and the Wildlife Committee and Board will then establish hunting quotas based on acreage. Then, hunting tags are issued to our approximately 110 landowners. However, not all landowners are hunters. Many simply enjoy watching the herd come through their property and eat at their feeders!
HISTORY: YO Ranchland roots go back to about 1880 with Capt. Charles Schreiner founding the Y-O Ranch. At one time, he owned over 600,000 acres and had many business interests in Kerrville. Charles Schreiner III took over the ranching interests in 1948 and was a leader in introducing exotic animals to Texas, and hunters were then able to hunt exotic species locally instead of having to travel to Africa and other places. With an economic downturn in the 1980’s, he decided to sell part of the ranch and took about 10,000 acres to incorporate the Y-O Ranchlands. There is a single high fence on the outer perimeter which allows our exotics and traditional animals to roam freely. There is no business tie to the Y-O Ranch now, we’re just good neighbors who have a lot in common!
EASEMENTS: No easements other than electrical.
SUMMARY: This is a very nice area that is definitely worth seeing if you love the Texas hill country! Landowners currently pay $13/acre for dues, annually, which provide for trash removal, a security guard, the Landowners’ powered entrance gate, the wildlife census, maintaining the main road known as Camino Real and other related expenses. Traditionally there are two social events every year, which brings property owners together for the common purpose of loving the Ranchlands that they all enjoy. It’s always a changing environment that will make you feel as if you never want to leave.
