Hunting Recreational Ranch



40.897+/- Acres


This Medina County ranch is located on FM 471, 5 miles south of LaCoste, 9 miles from Castroville and a 45 minute drive to the San Antonio airport. Trips to Walmart, HEB, churches, doctors and dining are all within minutes from the ranch. The ranch sits at the corner of FM 471 and County Road 5718 East.


Pecan Springs Ranch is Ag-exempt and is the perfect set up for horses, cattle, 4-H projects and other agricultural interests. The old farmhouse was professionally razed and removed and a former milking parlor was remodeled into a one bedroom, one bath Casita to provide living quarters during potential new construction, and offer guest quarters later. It is attractively finished with a modern kitchen, stainless appliances, granite counters, living area and laundry/mud room. An attached covered sitting area expands the 700 sq. ft. living quarters to 1400 sq. ft. under a new metal roof. This outdoor seating area provides views of the nearby ¾ acre fishing tank and covered pavilion providing outstanding recreation. The tank is supplemented with a strong 20 GPM well and kept full year round. The well has a new submersible pump installed in 2013. The yard between the Casita and the fishing tank has two large producing Pecan trees. The home is supported by an East Medina Water meter. A large two story barn on a concrete slab offers two secure tool and equipment rooms and a large game room. There is parking in the barn for tractor/vehicles in two large bays. Between the barn and the Casita is a covered workshop area.

The front half of the property is an irrigated hay field, regularly producing a solid crop of round bales for cattle and horses. The back half of the property is an irrigated pasture used to graze cattle. The entire property is low fenced and cross fenced in fair to good condition. A wet weather creek that fills in rainy season divides the ranch down the middle. The soils are fertile clay loam producing good irrigated grasses for hay and grazing.

An old barn that has experienced many storms in its day is near the back pasture and has a small adjacent gathering pen. It could possibly be refurbished.


As mentioned, there is a strong water well, one East Medina Water meter and Bexar-Medina-Atascosa (BMA) Water District irrigation rights on the whole ranch.


The fishing tank is an attraction for many doves and ducks, and is full of Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, Catfish and forage fish. The fields and brush along the creek provide habitat for quail. There have been no feral hogs on this property in the last 3 years.


Seller will convey 50% of all owned minerals.


Rarely is a property with this quality of agricultural and recreational amenities offered. The great location offers peaceful country living and a guest house to use while building the “dream home”. Adding irrigation water rights and mineral rights gives this property solid market value.

Property is sold “AS IS” and will be deed restricted to site built home and division restrictions.
