263± Acres Pathways Ranch, Gillespie Co.
Gypsum Mine Rd
The Pathways Ranch is a stunning live-water ranch in highly sought after Gillespie County. The ranch offers total privacy and seclusion, yet is just minutes to Fredericksburg’s Main Street. With its gorgeous spring-fed creek, long distance views, newly constructed barn, great access, and desirable shape this property checks every box for a Hill Country ranch!
The newly constructed barn has 4,000± sf of enclosed space with a bathroom and shower, deer cooler, large gun safe, plumbed compressed air system, Wi-Fi, A/V system with Sonos, Tesla charger, and a 40×80’ covered equipment storage area in the rear and a 26×80’ cement slab/covered parking in the front. The barn also features a deer cleaning station with lights and two powered winches.
The large metal roof on the barn is tied into a rain catchment system that flows into a 65,000-gallon storage tank. There is a large solar array to supplement power to the barn, so the CTEC energy bill never exceeds $27/month, and surplus power is pushed back to CTEC and credited via a wholesale agreement.
Along the creek there is a newly constructed covered and paved gun range with a storage building and solar power.
The owners have installed almost three miles of crushed granite roads, including the privately owned lane from Gypsum Mine Rd., ensuring easy and comfortable access into and around the ranch.
The highlight of the property is the 4,600± ft of both sides of spring-fed Long Branch Creek. Two dams have been constructed along the creek to create two beautiful lakes that ensure year-round recreation, the largest being 13+ft deep! According to the owners, this creek has never stopped flowing under their stewardship, even during the recent drought. There is one water well on the property that is 120ft and yields 4GPM, however it is rarely used due to the high-capacity (65,000 gallon) rainwater storage that is currently full.
The topography is mostly gently rolling and very usable, with 120ft of elevation change across the ranch, ranging from 1900 – 2020ft above sea level. The owners have done extensive cedar clearing, enabling the native grasses to flourish and opening up the creek bottom and hilltops which offer some breathtaking long-distance views. There are some beautiful mature hardwoods along the creek and numerous Live Oaks throughout the ranch.
The ranch boasts a healthy population of native Whitetail deer and Rio Grande Turkey.
Wildlife Tax Exemption in place.
