Located a short 7 miles from Downtown Boerne.
Hidden amongst the trees, hills, and canyons and created with a vision.
Welcome to the Lazy River Ranch.
Relax, unwind and let the stress of the world disappear as you enter this 72± acre dreamland.
Driving onto the property, you will immediately notice the land has been meticulously cleared of cedar trees, allowing the beauty of the hardwoods and landscape to be seen and ready for your vision.
This unrestricted property is border-fenced, and has multiple cross-fenced sections, all having a Native Range designation providing low property taxes. One front pasture of approximately 18 acres is currently being used for goats and comes with a water trough and an almost 900 ft goat house as shelter. This pasture setup could easily be retrofitted into a multi-stall barn with an arena for horses.
Overlooking this front pasture is the first of three homes on the property. A quick detour from the main entrance drive, on the inner ranch road, will take you to this almost 1,800 ft Guest House 1. This is a fully renovated, beautiful three bedroom, two bath home complete with a breezeway connecting the two-car garage. A full kitchen with custom cabinetry and high-end finishes allows guests to relax and enjoy their stay at the Lazy River Ranch. The back porch of this home overlooks one of the canyons on the property that ultimately leads to the Guadalupe River. Natural springs in this canyon provide year-round water, allowing for abundant wildlife. Several small cave entrances in these canyons add another feature to this property that makes it truly unique.
Back to the main entrance driveway will take you past the calm setting of the windmill sitting adjacent to the Driving Range Green. Be careful of the sand trap next to the three holes to choose from, sitting approximately 118 yards to 130 yards from the tee-off next to the Main House. There is also a multi-hole putting green to practice your finishing shots.
As you continue driving, you are able to catch your first glimpse of what truly makes this property special. Amongst the Hill Country flora and fauna, it becomes apparent that the Main House and surrounding features are treated with utmost care.
As you pull up to the Main House, you are greeted with large hardwood trees and a sense of belonging. This over 5,000 ft home has been created from a vision of the original structure on the property and added to and renovated to become the beautiful one-of-a-kind home you see today. No expense was spared in creating this unique sanctuary of three bedrooms with five full bathrooms. The modern kitchen with custom cabinetry and Viking appliances opens up to the spacious dining area overlooking the custom glass sunroom with sliding accordion glass doors. From this amazing vantage, you can look at what can only be described as the fabulous backyard. His and Her offices, complete with fiber internet, allow for multiple people to have the ability to work from home. The custom-built primary suite is entered through your own personal kitchenette to allow for custom coffee service in the mornings. The large primary bedroom adorned with custom designed wood-burning stove fireplace provides for a private retreat to relax from the day. The ensuite primary bathroom is the envy of royalty, considering every luxury possible. A staircase before the bedroom leads you to the private second office suite, complete with a sitting room, full bath, and balcony overlooking the property. Additional living and sitting rooms allow for the ultimate entertaining space and make guests feel welcome.
Stepping outside one begins to see the grandeur and vision that has created the Lazy River Ranch. From here, the choices begin. Following the stone path to the right will lead you to the large covered eating and grilling gazebo, complete with a chandelier to help light up the Texas evenings. Following the stone path forward will take you to the Keith Zars Pools custom-built Junior Olympic pool. This beautiful and soothing pool is perfect for swimming laps or just relaxing from the summer heat but can also be heated in the winter and enjoyed year-round. Chairs, umbrellas, and a slide provide hours of entertainment and relaxing poolside.
Just a few steps away lay the rock beach entrance to the Keith Zars Pools custom-designed and built lazy river, which graciously yields its name for the ranch itself. Complete with a fantastic waterfall, this lazy river is the size, and quality one would expect in the most elegant resorts. Heated and fully lit, this feature can be enjoyed year-round and at night even as you remove yourself from the current and head to the swim-up bar overlooking the propane-driven fire pit and seating area. This fire pit area can also be accessed via the custom-built bridge taking you over the lazy river as your guests casually float by.
Adjacent to the lazy river and overlooking the beautiful property lies the custom-built 1,400 ft Pool House. No expense was spared in creating this unique, lovely one bedroom, one bath home. The Pool House is adorned with custom cabinetry and finishes, a full kitchen, laundry room and provides the most exceptional entertaining to keep guests at a distance from the Main House if so desired.
Connected to and outside of the Main House is a breezeway leading to the garage and parking. The garage building is large and, in addition to parking, has extra storage rooms and a second story with the potential to be turned into an additional guest suite(s) closer to the Main House if desired.
There are also multiple additional buildings near the parking area that can be used for various purposes. One of which, a custom-built structure of almost 400 ft, is currently called the Game Room and is filled with various arcade games from the past. There is also a concrete-floored barn perfect as a tack room for holding ATVs, Polaris, or any other toys you might want. A combination sports court sits just outside the back of the Main House for additional entertainment.
Through the cross fenced gate, following the inner ranch road past Guest House 1 and front pastures leads to an additional 27 acres of private and secluded, gently rolling land that also has had all cedars removed to allow the native hardwood Oak and Elm trees to thrive. This acreage comes with its own private entrance from Seewald Road leading back to 2,900 ft Guest House 2. With three bedroooms, three bathrooms, hardwood floors, and a custom kitchen, this two-story farmhouse has all the modern conveniences while providing the charm everyone wants and desires. Complete with detached three-car garage, and bonus storage room above, Guest House 2 allows for additional space to create your oasis. You can bring your horses, chickens, goats, donkeys and cattle, this property has room for everyone and a pond / tank ready to be filled in the front portion of the land.
Located behind the Main House and pool sanctuary lies an additional almost 44-acre pasture currently used to keep the mini donkeys that call the Lazy River Ranch home. The cedar trees were painstakingly removed and/or trimmed in this pasture to allow for the beauty of the natural landscape of the Texas Hill Country. There are additional barns and storage buildings in this pasture as well. Multiple wells provide water and troughs throughout the property and this pasture.
Another feature unique to this property, near the eastern edge of this back pasture, lies the Shooting Range. This custom-built range has three seated and covered shooting decks ranging from 30, 50, and 100 yards into a common target designed and built to catch all accurately fired rounds.
As you can see, the Lazy River Ranch has much to offer. A property that must truly be seen in person to understand and grasp the vision of the owners and the quality of the finishes. Very few properties can offer these amenities, let alone have the privacy and seclusion of unrestricted land less than 15 minutes to downtown Boerne and less than one hour from downtown San Antonio. The property can be used as it currently sits as a single-family home with guests. It would make an ideal horse breeding facility with minimal modifications. It could be used as a corporate retreat, a wedding venue, or even another up-and-coming Vineyard + Winery in the Texas Hill Country. Throw in a few cabins and create an AirBnB retreat, the likes of which have never been seen. The possibilities are truly endless. Set your appointment to see this amazing property today.
