Breezy Hills Ranch, with its big vistas lies in the scenic, rolling terrain of southern Gillespie County in the Texas Hill Country. The crown jewels of this ranch are the commanding views offered by its, privacy, exceptional home sites, and location. This property has had extensive habitat improvements over the last 2-3 years. Cedar has been selectively removed allowing for the re-establishment of native grasses. The multiple hilltop vistas offer a variety of options when considering the perfect building site.
Location & Access
Historic Fredericksburg, TX (great restaurants, music venues, wineries, shopping, hospital, grocery stores, full service 24/7 airport) is a scenic 10-minute drive from the front gate. Austin is a 1 hour 40 min drive via US-87 & US-290 and San Antonio is 1 hour away via US-87 and I-10. The ranch sits in an ideal location 20 minutes from Charming Comfort on private Breezy Hill Rd that connects with US-87.
Seasonal Pecan Creek
The north end of the ranch features 1,357 feet of both sides of Pecan Creek, typically a seasonal spring fed creek. This bottomland site with runoff would make for a potential larger body of water to be captured.
Two water wells were drilled in July 2015. Well #399976 was drilled to a depth of 437’, hitting water at 313’ with a yield of 12 GPM. Well #400624 was drilled to a depth of 498’, hitting water at 346’ with a yield of 30 GPM. Two water storage tanks are in place with one holding 1,000± gallons and the other 200± gallons. Piped water stations are in place for livestock and wildlife.
Land & Wildlife
Breezy Hills Ranch exemplifies what a well-managed, diverse Texas Hill Country ranch should be. The south end of the ranch offers heavy cover for wildlife habitat dotted with Black Cherry, Live Oak, Post Oak, and Spanish Oak trees. Native grasses, mixed brush, and Live Oaks cover the higher elevations of the property. The owner has carefully groomed areas around the ranch creating a private, park-like feel. The upper-section of the ranch is dominated by two impressive hills that provide beautiful views of the valley below. The elevation ranges from a low of 1,820’ along the creek up to 1,920’ at the north end of the property.
Abundant wildlife includes white-tailed deer, Rio Grande turkey, feral hogs, and grey fox. If birding is your hobby, BHR is home to many species of native song birds, including owls, hawks, and dove.
Even with the vast landscapes of the Texas Hill Country, it is a challenge to find the ideal property that encompasses all of the criteria most often cited by Buyers including convenient access, well-watered, wildlife abundant, onsite sporting and recreation, private access, proximity to urban conveniences, topographic diversity and gorgeous scenery. Rarely do properties come on the market blessed with the features that Breezy Hills Ranch possesses.
There are no structural improvements on the ranch. Underground utilities have been brought in including T-1 fiber as evidenced in select photography. A quality road system winds through the site up and down multiple hills providing unblocked views of the surrounding hill country. Perimeter fencing on the property includes high fencing on three sides with low fencing along the south boundary bordering a much larger ranch.
