Looping for over 100 thrilling miles through the highest mountains in Real and Edwards Counties, the roads that make up the Three Twisted Sisters are considered the most scenic drive in the Texas Hill Country. Branded Springs Ranch, a high-fenced 1,366-acre slice of Texas heaven, sits on the pinnacle of the most pristine and visually stunning of the Sisters, paved Ranch Road 335. Bordering several other giant ranches, this conveniently located, and affordably priced live-water property is only 2 left turns from San Antonio or Houston. Although it enjoys outstanding privacy, it is still just a short 55-minute drive from HEB, Walmart, a large assortment of restaurants, and the full aviation services of the Kerrville-Kerr County Airport.
Harkening back to its ranching past, Branded Springs Ranch gets its name from several reportedly historical brands that are carved into smooth rock near the main swimming hole. The ranch straddles the exact geological line between the gently rolling "divide" and the magnificent valleys and towering peaks of the Edward's Plateau. The main ranch valley, which stretches for an astonishing 3 miles, is flanked by over 15 separate side canyons, many containing recently discovered springs and seeps. The entire valley floor, and all of the header canyons, are a solid blanket of oaks and other hardwood species providing the perfect habitat for whitetail deer, turkey, feral hogs and numerous exotics. A large herd of elk roam the mountains, and numerous large bulls have recently been bugling every morning at daylight.
Although the Branded Springs Ranch has 2 active water wells, it is especially blessed with live water. Lots and lots of live water. In fact, the sellers have now identified approximately 15 springs that never stopped flowing through the summer and continue flowing even during the current rainfall deficit. The main waterhole on the creek, which is of course crystal clear, has a solid rock bottom from 1-4 feet in depth..... absolutely perfect for a folding chair and a cold beer on a hot summer day!
To top it all off, the ranch has a small but very tastefully remodeled 5 bedroom- 2 bath cabin, as well as an enormous new metal barn with electrical roll-up door. If a buyer so desired, they could enclose half of the metal barn as a huge additional living space, and still have enough room for all the equipment you could ever need!
Properties with live water and sheer raw beauty like the Branded Springs Ranch are becoming harder and harder to find in the current red-hot ranch market, and this one will certainly not be available for long.
