Property Description: Owned by the same family for over 100 years, the 338 +/- acre Lutz Ranch offers a great opportunity to own a recreational ranch in the highly desired southern portion of Medina County just minutes from Castroville and Devine. Conveniently located within 40 minutes of San Antonio, the ranch is easily accessible off paved CR 651, which connects to both HWY 173 and FM 1343.
The ranch is unique in the fact that it offers productive soil and great brush diversity, with a mix of open pastures. Huge Oak trees are scattered throughout the ranch and line the creek bottom that runs along the western boundary, providing great roosting sites for turkey. The ranch’s brush diversity includes big oaks and bull mesquite, as well as guajillo, granjeno and other native south Texas brush. There are also two tanks on the property that hold sufficient water, even in dry years.
Location: Approximately 40 +/- minutes to San Antonio, Approximately 15 +/- to Castroville, Approximately 15 +/- minutes to Devine, Approximately 20+/- minutes to Hondo.
The diversity in soils, and mix of brush, sustains wildlife including White-tail deer, hogs, Rio Grande turkey, dove, bobwhite quail and during the winter months waterfowl can be seen on the tanks.
Upon entering the ranch, one will notice the 50+/ acre field in front of the house, which in previous years was planted in Coastal. Elevations range from 850- 900’, the north end of the ranch provides rocky hills filled with brush and offers great views of the ranch and the surrounding area. Transitioning to the south, fertile drainages and large oaks can be seen in the lower elevations.
