Live Water Horse Ranch For Sale in Doss, TX

84+ acre Hill Country gem!  This property has a little bit of everything…live water, views, multiple houses, horse facilities, hunting and farming.  Rancho Cielito Lindo is an ag-exempt ranch highlighted by major views and both sides of Threadgill Creek.  Land in this fertile valley does not come available often.  Located directly off Ranch Road 783 this property is a short drive to Fredericksburg, Mason, Kerrville, and Llano.  Approximately 1.5 hours from San Antonio and a little more to Austin, allows for an easily accessible weekend getaway.


Almost 1/4 mile of spring fed Threadgill creek dissects the property.  This water is crystal clear and home to striped bass, perch, and many other aquatic species.  (*all creeks and rivers in Texas are subject to fluctuating levels of flow and can go underground or even become dry at times based on rainfall and other conditions. We make no representation as to the permanency of this creek as it exists today or at the time of your visits.)   In addition to the creek is a catch pond on the North side  which traps the runoff of the elevated areas.  This provides a great water source and attractant for wildlife.


The 2000 square foot German style rock exterior main house is outfitted with custom wooden cabinets and counters, 2.5 bedrooms, two bathrooms, tankless water heater, royal master bath, standing seam metal roof, grand wrap around porch and stainless appliances.  A six stall English style horse barn with efficiency apartment.  The barn is complete with tack room and wash rack.  The efficiency apartment has it’s own septic, kitchenette, living area and mini split air conditioner.

On the other side of the main house is another one bedroom “casita” built in 2017 with metal exterior.  This nice size addition has one bedroom, one bathroom, a living area, and kitchenette.  It is also complete with it’s own septic and mini-split.  Adjacent to this living area is covered parking, covered storage and enclosed shop with roll up door.  Electricity is available to all parts of this structure.  In the center of all these improvements is a 20X30 flagstone cooking area.

Complete with matching roof, two wood burning grills, and stone outdoor fireplace makes this the perfect area to relax after a long day.  A matching stone well house protects the water well and provides additional storage.  This well house is fitted with water storage tank and heater.  High fenced on two sides, cross fenced, and multiple corrals this property is set up for wildlife and agricultural use.


Rancho Cielito Lindo is approximately 70% rolling to flat terrain and 30% hills.  There is an elevation change of ~130′ from the entrance to the top of the hill.  On the North end of the property is a completely fenced off 11 acre hay field.  This field is planted with Coastal Bermudagrass which is baled every summer.  Last year they cut almost 100 round bales off this field which provided additional income to the property.  The ranch has an easily traversed road system that can get you to all corners of the property.  The ranch has a great mixture of cleared areas and brushy areas to provide for wildlife and grazing.  Great native grasses and trees are found throughout the property.  90% of the cedar has been removed from the property.


Gillispie County is home to one of the largest populations of whitetail deer.  Turkey, white wing and eurasion dove also frequent the ranch.
