Alum Creek Ranch is located approximately 5.2 miles north of Stockdale, just off of State HWY 123 enroute to Seguin and an approximate 15 minute drive to LaVernia off HWY 87... (great ISD.) This secluded property does not disappoint... With Alum Creek running at the back of the property, the live oak trees provide fantastic shade cover while sitting on the back concrete patio. The main house is a 2 bedroom/1 bath home and a new concrete sidewalk leads to the 1 bedroom/1 bath guest house. The horse barn is made by BarnPros. It has three indoor stalls with run turnouts along the east side of the barn. The west side of the barn has portable runs under cover. There are materials to help build 2 more indoor stalls, although doors would need to be ordered. The Seller chose not to add them and used the space to store 200 square bales. Also, a turnout pasture with approximately 6-7 acres & 1- lean-to is set up. There is a riding area tilled up. The soil is a really nice sandy loam, perfect for working horses. The property can be baled, it was sprigged for coastal bermuda and fertilized heavily prior to this last year. The property has the ability to produce up to 400 coastal squares per cutting, with 3 cuttings per year (on a normal year with mid-summer rain). A year like this drought, the Seller stated 300 squares. There is a newly constructed 2+/- acre pond that currently, even with drought, holds water. All of the rainwater runoff, throughout the property, is directed to the pond. The depth of the pond is approximately 25' deep in the center. The Alum Creek is a live water creek as shown in the photos. Throughout this drought, the creek never went dry. Due to the creek, the back part of the property is considered, by FEMA mapping, a floodplain area. This would include the two homes... BUT... when the original owners built/started construction... Wilson County Commissioners/permitting had them build the two homes Up and Out of the floodplain. There is a Wilson County Court signed Variance to the FEMA floodplain for this property to verify. The property is in a 100 year floodplain, although long time owners surrounding the property have never seen the creek rise out of the banks to flood the home/property... The only time noted it rose out of the bank was in 2017, when the devastating hurricane Harvey made its way through Texas... Everyone had flooding.
