Description: Great hunting, diverse topography, and live water just minutes from Kerrville, priced at less than $8,000 per acre, this ranch is a great value! With end-of-the-road seclusion, the ranch is surrounded by other high-end properties, including the exclusive ranch subdivision, Kamira, with the only low-fenced boundary to the non-hunting community. The ranch is densely populated with cedar and hardwoods, but areas have been strategically cleared to reveal the underlying natural beauty and improve habitat for the diversity of wildlife that exists. The Double W is already a great recreational hunting ranch, with plenty of blank slate left to improve the property as you see fit and create your own finished product.
Water: Clear springs collect into a meandering canyon lined with oak and cherry trees amid a rock face backdrop. One of the springs is dammed to create a tranquil wildlife pond. NRCS conducted a study on the springs and watershed and completed plans for a larger impoundment of approximately 2 surface acres with a depth of 12’.
Improvements: Minimal improvements mean you are not paying for someone else’s taste. A cozy manufactured home sits high on a scenic hill, with well, electricity, and septic in place, allowing the new owner a comfortable recreational retreat or temporary residence while you build your dream home. A detached equipment shed/storage building provides a place to store tools, feed, and equipment, complete with a deer cleaning station. There are several roads and ATV trails that traverse the hills and canyons connecting feed locations.
Wildlife: The Double W is home to a diversity of game including White-tailed Deer, Axis, Sika, Turkey, and other exotics, with low perimeter fence around the majority of the property allowing them to roam freely. The spring-fed pond provides a year-round oasis for free-ranging animals, including those that immigrate from Kamira in search of resources. The ranch is wildlife exempt, and the landowner has cooperated with TPWD to improve the indigenous species through supplemental feed, strategic harvest, and census.
