Description for 4029 Seco Valley Rd Utopia, TX 78884
Blue Bird Ranch at Seco Falls is a breathtaking and idyllic Hill Country live water ranch for sale in Utopia, TX. Located 12.3 miles east of Utopia, TX and 82 west-northwest of San Antonio, the incredible 170-acre Blue Bird Ranch is nestled within the majestic hills of Utopia and along the banks of the crystal-clear Seco Creek. Bordered by large ranches on all sides, the Blue Bird Ranch offers quintessential Hill Country settings in a private and expansive atmosphere. The one quarter mile stretch of Seco Creek that borders the ranch features a large, engineered concrete dam and spillway built in 2003. The resulting lake provides a stunning private swimming and fishing oasis. While the dam allows for constant level water retention, it's maintenance valve allows for draining and cleaning when needed. In addition to providing habitat for native fish, the lake provides a stopover for waterfowl travelling along seasonal migration routes. Bald cypress, catalpa, maple and native trees line the lake, adding texture to the stunning backdrop of hills surrounding the property. Additionally, a small, irrigated and producing pecan orchard is set to provide additional shade and privacy along the lake shores. The ranch and it's improvements currently utilize water captured from Seco Creek for irrigation and household use. Beyond the park-like creek frontage and orchard, over 160 acres of usable hill country land provides an excellent mixture of open pastures, pecan bottom, game cover, and oak mots (with live oak, post oak, and Spanish oak varieties). Native brush species include mountain juniper, persimmon and assorted other native brush species. Proximity to Seco Creek provides the ranch with good class 3 soils throughout the majority of the property conducive to cultivation, grass, and pasture improvement. Native grasses on the ranch are generally strong and plentiful. From the creek bank, the ranch topography transitions into the hills to the north with a steady elevation gain to forty feet. The current owners have practiced fastidious land stewardship practices to include controlled burning, supplemental wildlife feeding, wildlife habitat management, and brush management which have optimized native plant and wildlife population balance and health. The numerous wildlife populating the ranch and surrounding Seco Valley include whitetail deer, axis deer and fallow deer as well as Rio Grande turkey, white wing dove and hogs. Currently under wildlife management, the property is fenced on 3 sides. The fencing is in good to excellent shape with a mix of netting and barbed wire. The ranch improvements are an entertainer's dream. The 7500 square feet barndominium was built with guests in mind with 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, and 3500 square feet of living space. A large kitchen dining area and a stunning and large screened in back porch provide an excellent venue for gathering with family and friends while taking in the sights and sounds of life in Texas hill country. An additional 4000 square feet of barn space next to the house provides space for working, storing large equipment, or entertaining with a capacity to easily accommodate gatherings of up to 50 guests. The flexible space can be climate controlled, opened up, and configured for catered events with plenty of room for a dance floor. Prep for hunting season, dial in your long-range shooting skills, or enjoy friendly competition with friends at the shooting 350-yard shooting range complete with metal targets and yardage markers. A large one third acre gravel pit provides an abundant supply of all weather material for roads or other uses around the ranch. Apache hill provides an iconic backdrop to the property. Believed to be the location of the last major battle with Apache Indians in the Texas hill country, this landmark feature is visible from miles away and will be a reminder to the new owners of Blue Bird Ranch at Seco Falls that they have indeed arrived home.
