Howdy Pardners! Have I mentioned that my sister, Susan Bowman, has an incredibly rare 740 acres of Texas ranch land for sale?

DD Ranch is in the Hill Country, and it’s a pretty special place – you can see the 101-ft.-tall cross from HWY 46 (and miles around). The ranch owned by an inventor/entrepreneur and his wife, now in their 90s. They’re ready to sell and pass the proceeds on to their children.

The Hill Country location is perfect – it’s in Pipe Creek, Texas, just 30 minutes from San Antonio, 15 minutes from Bandera and 8 minutes from the growing town of Boerne. Its rolling hills and valleys are absolutely beautiful – and 108 acres are level with no building restrictions – perfect for business, commercial and/or residential use.

The big draw is water. The ranch has two live water streams, five deep wells and four aquifers. Spring-fed Beekman Creek runs through the property and has never stopped flowing. Portions have been dredged and dammed to form three lakes – excellent for fishing and swimming.

There’s an 8,000-sq.-ft. Grand Hacienda – a beautiful place to live or to turn into a hotel or event center. There’s a 6,000-sq.-ft. metal building with two bedrooms/two bathrooms – you can run a little manufacturing business in there – or use it as a studio. And there’s an additional two bedroom/two-bathroom cottage with an attached stable – perfect for horseback-riding AirBandBers!

Speaking of animals – the ranch is filled with wildlife. 150 head of elk, axis and white-tail deer, doves, quail, antelope, flocks of turkey and Barado rams live on the property. The lakes and ponds host wild ducks, geese and swans from time to time, and donkeys Bonnie and Clyde patrol the area.

For those of you with your own planes? Great news! You’ll have access to the airstrip next door!

So what say you? Are you ready to buy a ranch? Or do you know someone who’s looking for a fabulous place like this? Let me know and I’ll connect you to Susan.
