Home Features

  • IMPROVEMENTS:
  • - MAIN HOME: This recently completed architectural marvel boasts 6500 square feet of opulent living space within a total roofed area of 9650 square feet. With construction having been completed in March of 2024, it is being sold in a pristine condition. Crafted primarily from limestone, original hand-hewn timber beams, and aged barn wood siding, the residence exudes the timeless elegance of ranch-style architectural design and with the highest quality modern finishings. The spacious master suite, privately located in the east wing, provides yet another layer of escape with envious characteristics, including automatic shades, a fireplace, washer and dryer, direct gym/sauna access, amply generous closet space, and an awe-inspiring bathroom that captures serene views of the lake. The heart of the home centers around the kitchen, which is something akin to perfection in the way it seamlessly blends functionality with style, catering to culinary enthusiasts and entertainers alike. Prep a five-course meal for the masses or just the family with the help of state-of-the-art appliances, ample counter space, two islands, fully custom cabinetry, an independently temperature-controlled wine room, walk-in pantry, and a separate coffee/beverage bar. The kitchen opens outward into an expansive dining room and formal, fireside living area enveloped by floor-to-ceiling sliding doors, bringing the life of Low Key Lake into the home. The cathedral-like vaulted ceilings are adorned with wagon wheel chandeliers and massive timber beams that can be found elsewhere throughout the home. When guests are done at the pool, coming in from the lake, or wrapping up a hunt, theyll want to gather in the west wing of the home, which includes guest suites and entertainment amenities. At kickoff, enjoy the comforts of the top-shelf entertainment lounge complete with a fully equipped beverage and snack bar, multiple media viewing areas, and stone fireplace. Concluding the day, guests can easily escape to three luxury private suites, each with its own unique style and individual baths. If work interrupts or you need to have in-person/virtual meetings, one of the bedrooms has been retrofitted to serve as an office suite with a full bath. Nearly 2000sqft of covered porch space and outdoor amenities provide an experience thats equally as memorable as the home and allow the capability of hosting large groups comfortably inside or out. Blending cohesively with the lake below, the resort-style pool and spa provide an immersive experience in relaxation. Water quality and systems management are simplified given integration with the latest treatment and control technology. The pool deck is furthered by another fireplace, kitchen/dining area, media area, and surround sound system. The Lutron smart home system and central control room ensure effortless control of the home's media, security, and comfort settings, creating an immersive, safe, and convenient experience for residents. In summary, this home epitomizes sophisticated living and architectural excellence, promising a lifestyle of unparalleled luxury and entertainment for those looking for a one-of-a-kind home situated perfectly on a one-of-a-kind ranch.
  • - PARTY BARN: From the main home, you cross a bridge over a finger of the lake to a new party barn sitting on a peninsula. The barn was constructed with the same level of thoughtfulness as the main residence but with more of an antiqued industrialist design. This 3600 sqft entertainers dream was completed in April of 2024. The space is finely tuned for large gatherings, hosting events, or an envious trophy room. The party starts at the full-scale kitchen and bar area and moves towards the indoor fireplace before heading out to lakeside porch. It has a large open floor plan downstairs with a full bath and laundry room. Guests will want to stay the night, so there is an additional bed and a bathroom upstairs with incredible views over the lake.
  • - CABIN: Atop one of the highest ridges of the ranch sits a charming 500 sqft cabin with a full bath, kitchen, living area, and pot belly stove. The cabin can be accessed by a separate driveway from the highway so as not to interfere with anyone at the main home. From the front porch, you get a great vantage point of the lake and sunset. Down the road from the cabin is an additional concrete pad looking over the lake and connected to a waterline which can be used for a new cabin build site, RV, or helipad.
  • - EQUIPMENT BARN: An 1800 sqft equipment barn with a half bath is just over the hill from the home, providing necessary storage for ranch equipment. The structure is on a concrete foundation, with water and electric to it. This could be converted into an additional living structure if necessary. There is another 480 sqft covered awning providing even more storage as well as a walk-in freezer for game.
  • WILDLIFE AND FISHERIES:
  • The lake has been professionally managed for largemouth bass, and the numbers are excellent! Come tour the ranch, take a ride in the boat, and see for yourself. In addition to bass, youll also find healthy numbers of Crappie, Bluegill, Carp, and Catfish. Multiple fish feeders are positioned around the lake to ensure a reliable food source for the growing population. When the lake was constructed, fish habitat was strategically placed along the banks for new fry to have sufficient protection and at deeper depths to support continued growth. The ranch is low fenced, allowing local native wildlife to flow freely into the ranch, and once they get there, its likely they will not want to leave. Water and food sources are abundant. There are currently 4 free-choice protein and cottonseed feeder stations as well as timed spin-cast corn feeders positioned throughout the ranch. Two of the three blinds and all feeders will convey. A considerable amount of whitetail and axis habitat around the ranch. Other native species flourish here, especially dove, turkey, waterfowl, and various songbirds.
  • UTILITIES:
  • The ranch and its various improvements are largely self-sustaining if you need them to be. There are three productive wells (25, 55, and 80 GPM) across the ranch, all powered by solar, with a 20k gallon holding tank supplying the main home. The house, party barn, and cabin are all connected to individual aerobic septic systems. The main home is equipped with propane backup generators. AT&T high-speed fiber optic internet is available.
  • TAXES:
  • Carrying costs from property taxes are reduced due to the property being under an AG Wildlife Exemption. The tax rate is set low to 1.05 and 2023 Taxes were $8647.41.

Lot Features

  • LOCATION & ACCESS:
  • This location is truly woven into the cultural fabric of the Texas Hill County. The ranch is conveniently located just 5 minutes/5 miles north of Fredericksburgs booming downtown overflowing with cultural hotspots that lend it to being one of Texas most heavily visited tourist areas. Fredericksburg has been steadily growing in popularity among travelers for years, and just recently in March of this year, it was ranked by Yelp as the #1 Family Friendly Travel Destination in the U.S. There are hundreds of unique local attractions such as wineries, restaurants, antique stores, golf (Boot Ranch 15 minutes west), state parks, distilleries, etc., all within spitting distance. While only a few minutes to town, the ranch is positioned outside of city jurisdiction. Its also positioned centrally to other major metros and their respective international airports, including San Antonio at 1.15 hours south and Austin at 1.40 hours west. There is excellent access to the property given its 3820 feet along Hwy 87 North with multiple gated access points already in place.
  • LAND & SURFACE WATER:
  • The land comprises 146 acres of verdant grasses, Oak Trees, and, most importantly, one of the most impressive private lakes in the region! The recently constructed 9.5-acre lake is a stately centerpiece for the ranch, for which all improvements and vistas are centered upon and which cannot be easily or cheaply recreated. This water feature has a footprint consistently wide and deep enough to afford access via a pontoon boat (will convey), which is slipped at the floating dock but can be taken in and out via a nearby concrete boat ramp. From the eastern corner of the lake nearest a springhead, you can travel up what feels like a cliff-lined creek in shallower spawning areas towards the main body of the lake. The lake is continuously fed by multiple springs and natural watershed from the surrounding hillsides and natural draws. When full, the retention dam has the ability to back up enough water to reach an estimated 44 of depth, creating an unparalleled water feature for your family and friends to enjoy. Simply put, Low Key Lake provides a truly unforgettable experience (especially for fishermen). The terrain has a gentle roll with gradual elevation changes ranging from 1920-2040, offering long-range views over the Hill Country in addition to ample watershed collection into the lake. The ranch has been totally cleared of cedar, allowing the grasses, native wildlife, Oaks, and year-round springs to flourish. While the land presently has no livestock grazing, the ranch is fully low-fenced with easy access to surface and well water for those wishing to do so.
