High Lakes Ranch is located in southwestern Blanco County, about ten miles west of Blanco, on paved Maenius Road in an area of medium to large working/recreational ranches and acreage tract subdivisions. Being part of a ranch once owned by actor Jimmy Stewart, High Lakes Ranch shows its sheep and goat heritage by having little to no cedar amongst its gorgeous cover of oaks, resulting in a refined, sophisticated look. The location is next to none, with the now-famous 290 Wine Corridor less than ten miles north, and sizzling Fredericksburg just 20 miles west. This is about an hours drive to either Austin or San Antonio, both home to international airports, and smack dab in the big middle of one of the three top growth areas in the United States. The ranch features at least seven vista points with huge southeastern exposure, along with several pond sites in the draws that could be enhanced. A uniform cover of live oak and Spanish oak is observed on the hillsides and tops, while heritage live oak, elm and walnut appear in the deep soil valleys. Hunting can be described as good for whitetail, exotics, hog and turkey, and a permanent, spring-fed pond offers potential for the fishing enthusiast. Other than perimeter fencing, this ranch is unimproved, a veritable blank canvas for the Hill Country end user with a plan. Hope to see you there soon!
