Welcome to the Faulkner Ranch—a historic 4,540± acre turn-key ranch that leaves nothing to want. The ranch has been in the same caring hands of the Faulkner family for over 25 years, and they have proven themselves to be superior land managers. The property is located just west of the charming town of Kerrvile, Texas, and is a haven for both native and exotic wildlife. There is 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.
With 13± miles of chip-sealed roads lined with mature trees, the scenic ranch is completely high fenced. The majority of the cedar has been cleared, leaving a variety of oak, walnut, pecan and hackberry trees that create a picturesque landscape. Thick, native grasses and plentiful vegetation have been enhanced by a rotational grazing program. Three game-fenced pastures have been divided into 3,472± acres, 667± acres and 400± acres. Groundwater is plentiful on the ranch with fifteen wells outfitted with a mix of solar and electric submersible pumps that are piped to tanks and troughs throughout the property.
In addition to the scenic beauty, the main compound is situated on 9.5± acres enclosed within a game-proof fence. This eastern area of the ranch includes the main house and attached garage with two guest apartments. The compound’s centerpiece is the four-bedroom, four-bath, 5,460± square-foot main house, referred to as “the Big House” for the size of its welcome. The owners have applied vision and creative style to elevate the original 1940s ranch house into an inviting home that welcomes the outdoors inside with warm wood, solid stone and plenty of light. The 2,700± square-foot attached garage includes two one-bed, one-bath, 20’x8’ apartments; one has a kitchenette. Their location makes them ideal accommodations for overflowing guests.
A vintage school house has been restored to include a bedroom and bathroom, and a nearby rock pila has been 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± equipment barn boasts a sturdy metal frame and concrete slab. It houses a walk-in cooler and game processing area.
