Riven Rock Ranch – This live water ranch for sale is regarded as one of the finest estates in the Texas Hill Country. Riven Rock Ranch is less than 40 minutes to the best shopping in San Antonio, but quietly tucked into the serene hills of Comfort. This ranch was designed as a family compound with large scale entertainment options. There is not a more complete luxury estate in the hill country. With over 3,500 feet of frontage along the Guadalupe River, you can fish, kayak, canoe, swim and even jet ski! The majority of the river on this stretch is deep and wide.
Main Home – 10,145± square feet of timeless Hill Country luxury. The original portion of the home was constructed in the 1930’s and has been meticulously restored with all of the modern expectations. The new portion of the home was completed in 2004. In total there are 6 bedrooms and 7.5 baths. The custom detail is seen throughout and the craftsmanship is unbelievable. The living areas are open with soaring ceilings and exposed wood beams. Custom kitchen with all top tier appliances and cabinetry. The master suite is exquisite with split bathrooms and expansive closets. The master retreat has custom treatments on the ceiling and is surrounded by a beautiful wrap around porch. The main compound was designed with a central courtyard feel in the back yard with extensive landscaping to add to the overall appeal. The views from the seemingly endless rock patio and walkway are simply breathtaking.
Game Room (Wally’s) – 1,263± square foot game room with outdoor and indoor fireplaces. Poker room, full bar, and full bath. This is the ultimate groomsmen hangout. Custom bar with fridge, wine rack, exposed beams, rock and more.
Guest Home – 3,122± square foot custom home with 5 bedrooms built in 2003. Custom kitchen with high end appliances. Large garage and beautiful Guadalupe River Valley views from the expansive front porch.
Farm House – This is one of our favorite structures on the ranch. The Farm House is a 3 bed 3 full bath home with 2,369± square feet of pure charm and elegance. This home was originally constructed in the earliest period of the 1900’s. It has undergone a massive renovation, which includes all new sub floor support, custom cabinetry throughout, a high end custom kitchen, and an addition. This home sits just above the Guadalupe River and has cross fenced pastures, 3 horse barns totaling 12 stalls and a storage barn. If you have an equestrian element to your vision, this will check that box without going over the top. Very simple maintenance even if you choose not to use them.
A party pavilion, metal building and additional storage areas round out this magnificent property.
The ranch consists of 206.145± acres of hill country land with over 3,500 feet of frontage on the Guadalupe River. This stretch of river is mostly deep and wide (12’± deep). The owners have installed a small boat ramp that they have used to put their jet skis in the river. The fishing and recreational opportunities are tremendous. The river also features windy, shallow rapids that work their into a private swimming hole that that then flows into a scenic cypress lined stretch that is synonymous with the hill country. Majority of the river front is manicured and mown. River side weddings and events could be held here year round.
There are 90± acres of irrigated pasture that are currently being used for hay production. The fields have been meticulously cared for and the hay produced has won the “Best Hay Award” multiple times. There are 3 irrigation pivots which are used to take advantage of the 92± acre feet of water rights from the river. There is also another well that is capable of producing 100 GPM that can be used to supplement the irrigation. This well is permitted.
Above the irrigated fields is the remainder of the ranch which house a majority of the improvements. That area has been cleared of most cedar and the vast hill top where the structures are has been covered in two feet of river bottom soil so that the EXTENSIVE landscaping and grass would grow easily. The landscaping is all watered and the current owner has automated all of this making it much easier to maintain. There are roughly 40 acres of area that have been left native which provide excellent hunting opportunities for axis and whitetail.
In addition to everything mentioned, there is an olive orchard, vineyard and show grape section. *High fencing surrounds any area you would want to keep the deer out.
Hermann Sons Road is a paved, county maintained road that bisects the northern portion of the ranch. There is roughly 27 acres on the river side of Hermann Sons and the remainder on the south side. The gate into the river tract is directly across the street from the entry gate to the farmhouse. Along the east boundary, is Altenheim Road which is also a paved, county maintained road. There is an entrance into the ranch near the back pavilion and restaurant off of this road.
The property has 4 water wells that are in use and the original hand dug well is still in place, but not used. All of the wells are set to run in alternating order. One well is not getting all of the use and it keeps the water in the wells from becoming stagnant. The entire property and landscaping is extremely well watered.
**all showing requests will need to be accompanied with a proof of funds. This is non-negotiable and will be required. There is not a finer ranch available in the greater San Antonio market and the list price wouldn’t even rebuild half of the ranch. This is a great purchase for the wealthy individual seeking a private family compound or a corporation looking to own the PREMIER event venue in the Hill Country.
