The 161± acre ag. exempt Creekside Ranch for sale in Medina County, Texas has it all. The remarkable property is conveniently located on County Road 4513, just five miles east of Hondo and less than one hour to San Antonio. Arrival at the custom pipe gated entry conveys a feeling of quality and natural beauty. Immediately inside, is a half-acre pond used for recreational fishing and bird dog training, along with a pond-side cabana with rec room and bath.
Down the quarter-mile drive to the main home sits a new 60’ x 40’ three-sided building that will hold two full-size motor homes. Next is an immaculate 4-bay shop/garage with roll-up doors and an attached “man cave” with bath, kitchenette, regulation shuffleboard and room for a sizeable party of friends to congregate. A covered two-dog kennel is nearby the man cave.
Continuing along the drive to the main home is the “Sea-Mint Pond”, a converted and modernized four-foot deep concrete water trough turned swimming hole complete with decking space for a party of friends and family.
Close to the main home is a young, producing irrigated pecan orchard, which had its first harvest in 2018.
The custom white rock 2,515± square foot three bedroom and two and a half bathroom home is an open concept design throughout the kitchen, living and dining areas, built in 2012. A beautiful wood burning fireplace adds a warm charm to the living and dining area. The master suite and bath are complemented by large walk-in closets and split from the other two bedrooms and baths. A large walk-in pantry is a grand compliment to the kitchen and flows to the utility room and on to the oversized two car garage, all of which is neat and tidy as the day it was brand new. A full-length covered porch along the rear of the home allows for great viewing and opportunities for early morning breakfasts, coffee or relaxation in the evening breezes.
The namesake of the ranch is the one-quarter mile of live water on the Hondo Creek on the far western end of the ranch. Flowing 24-7 with crystal clean blue-green water, one can see the fish above the rock bottom depths of 15’ to 18’. Fishing, swimming, kayaking, and canoeing are all at their best here. A creekside cabana with electricity, water, and bath provides a great gathering spot for all the water recreation. The screened facility sits beneath one of the largest Heritage Oaks in Medina County, an obvious opportunity for family photos. In fact, the lush pastures are spotted with several century oaks with sprawling canopies.
Wildlife abounds along the brush and timber between the pastures and the creek, supporting Whitetail deer, dove, quail and a variety of other small game. Fencing is game fenced on the south perimeter and low fenced throughout the remainder of the ranch. The pastures are lush with Coastal Bermuda grasses used for grazing and hay production. A set of covered working pens is centrally located with easy access to the driveway and can assist in rotating stock to one of three cross fenced pastures and a couple of smaller traps. Currently, a set of high genetics White Barbado ewes and two trophy rams, one sporting 40” double curls reside on the ranch. Water is supplied to the home and creekside cabana from a rural water meter, and two strong wells support the ponds and water troughs. Two deer blinds and feeders convey with the ranch, along with a 2017 Kubota 93 HP cab tractor with just 162 hours along with a 15’ bat-wing shredder and front loader.
