A 127-acre ranch minutes from Main Street Boerne is now on the market, and it has potential for commercial and residential development.

The Winsbrook Ranch features a Hill Country terrain with 1,460-square-feet of I-10 frontage as well as thousands of square feet along a creek that runs through the property. Also on site are a three-bedroom barn house, a water tank, a 1800s dog run house, a small smokehouse and a guest home.

“The best-suited buyer, I think, would be a developer that has ideas to develop the I-10 frontage into either commercial or multifamily, and then in the back, a single-family-home type of development,” said listing agent Louie Swope, partner and broker for West & Swope Ranches. “Also, it could go toward a buyer looking for an estate-type property to buy, live out on and just let it appreciate over time.”

The main house is in need of repairs. It includes more than 7,000 square feet with three bedrooms, four full bathrooms and two half bathrooms as well as a game room, an elevator, a three-car garage and a greenhouse inside the home with sweeping views of the creek and Hill Country.

Boerne, and other smaller cities near San Antonio, are growing rapidly with both commercial and residential development. Large properties such as this one are becoming more reare each year.

“There’s land development all over the San Antonio area in just about every direction,” said Swope. “Especially out in that Boerne area, it seems like everyone wants to be out there and so close to San Antonio… there’s a lot going on, and really pretty land out there too.”
