The historic Faulkner Ranch is one of the finest turnkey ranches in all of the Texas Hill Country! This 4,540± acre ranch is a haven for both native and exotic wildlife and is easily accessible with frontage on both Hwy 39 and FM 187 in southwestern Kerr County, just west of the charming town of Hunt, Texas.
The Faulkner Ranch has been well-managed to provide an exceptional habitat for wildlife including an abundance of whitetail deer, wild turkey, dove, axis deer, fallow deer, blackbuck antelope, red deer, barasingha and feral hogs. Native whitetails are managed under a Level III Managed Lands Deer Permit.
The completely high-fenced scenic ranch has over 13± miles of chip-sealed roads lined with mature trees, and the remainder of the property is reachable by conventional ranch roads. The majority of cedar has been removed, leaving a variety of oak, walnut, pecan and hackberry trees to create a picturesque landscape. Three game-fenced pastures have been divided into 3,473± acres, 667± acres and 400± acres. Thick native grasses and plentiful vegetation for wildlife have been enhanced by a rotational grazing program.
The rustic elegance of the main house provides a warm ambiance, perfect for entertaining guests. The 5,460± square-foot ranch-style home has four bedrooms, a massive fireplace in the living room, a wet bar, a game room complete with its own fireplace and gorgeous exposed wooden beams. The house rests on a beautifully landscaped 9.5± acre tract and includes an attached garage and two guest apartments.
A vintage school house has been restored to include a bedroom and bath, with a nearby rock pila converted into a swimming pool. The landscaped and fenced foreman’s residence is a four-bedroom, two-bath double-wide manufactured home, and a sleeping-quarters barn encompasses 7,500± square feet within its six bays. The 6,250± square-foot equipment barn boasts a sturdy metal frame and concrete slab. It houses a walk-in cooler and game processing area.
Groundwater is plentiful on the ranch. Fifteen wells are outfitted with a mix of solar and electric submersible pumps, piped to tanks and troughs throughout the property.
