BACKGROUND: This property is has been in the owner’s family for four generations and was once part of the 10,000 acre Klein Ranch that is/was located adjacent to the famous YO Ranch.

This property has always been and still is used for hunting, ranching and recreation.

DESCRIPTION: This beautiful Hill Country ranch is comprised of flat to rolling tree covered terrain with a seasonal creek, cedar cleared pastures and thousands of oak trees. It is located in the highly sought after Divide area of Kerr County. Johnson Fork Creek heads up in the middle of this property and it flows in a northwesterly direction for about 2,000 feet before exiting the ranch. This is a seasonal creek at this point and it should be an excellent location for building a small lake. There is one good stock pond on this property. Excellent potable water from the Edwards and Trinity aquifers underlies this land at a depth of about 525-550 feet. Elevations vary from about 2,265 to 2,345 feet above sea level. The terrain is level to rolling and easily traversable in a two-wheel drive vehicle. The temperature at night is always cool and crisp and about 10 degrees cooler than in San Antonio which is only 85 miles away. Access is excellent with about 1,900 feet of frontage on State Highway 41 which forms the south boundary line of the ranch. Privacy is assured as there are no road easements thru the ranch nor is there a public road on any boundary line except for the highway frontage. Electric service is available from a power line that crosses the property. The property is high fenced on two sides with a low fence on the remaining boundaries. The Divide Independent School District school (kinder thru 6th grade) is located very near this ranch. This ISD is one of the smallest districts in Texas and the total enrollment in this outstanding school is about 25 students. This ranch has an abundance of whitetail deer and turkey, herds of blackbuck antelope and other exotics. This sportsman’s paradise is ready for the lucky buyer to build their own ranch house or lodge and put their personal touch on it.
