Location: 13447 Macdona-LaCoste Road. The property is located approximately 21.0 miles southwest of downtown San Antonio in southwestern Bexar County, Texas. The property is accessed off of Macdona- LaCoste Road over the Southern Pacific Railroad. Property is approximately 4 miles west of Loop 1604 and 3.4 miles East of La Coste. Hoch Ranch has easy access into San Antonio on IH 35 or Hwy 90 and is only 20 minutes from downtown and 30 to 35 minutes from the Medical Center.
Description: This manicured and beautiful property has a combination of open and improved pasture with majestic Oaks and large Pecan trees throughout, as well as other native trees that create good cover for wildlife. There is a road system with a drivable dam between the large and smaller lakes and a road through primarily native pasture along the river. All of the improvements are on a high bank above the river with large Oaks and Pecans, and fantastic views of the river and lakes. Approximately 15+- acres are in this top area with around 9 acres of hay pasture. Vegetation found on the property includes Live Oak, Post Oak, Hackberry, Pecan, Wild Persimmon, Mesquite, and Cypress along the Medina River.
Water Features: This live water property is one of the most unique places in South Texas. The ranch has approximately 1/2 mile of Medina River frontage which is a permanent feature at this location with good flow. The river is wide and deep most of the way but also has a section that shallows up with some small rapids. This section of the river flows consistently even during dry times. The river is also easily accessible and has multiple areas where you can drive a vehicle or an atv up to the edge of the river to enjoy fishing or swimming. The ranch also offers two lakes that are spring and river fed, and stay consistently full. The largest lake is approx. 27 acres in size and is deep and large enough to ski on with depths ranging from 8’ to 20’. The second lake is approx. 8+ Acres. Both lakes offer fantastic fishing and hold trophy bass and catfish, as well as ducks, during the season. The recreational water opportunities are endless with this much water in one location.
Improvements: The ranch has 3 homes, and each is unique. The features of each home are briefly explained below.
Main House: The main home on the ranch is modern and energy efficient. The 2,120 square foot home is constructed of 4 poured concrete domes with stucco siding over the cement walls inside and out. The concrete roof is covered in dirt and grass and also has 32 solar panels with an 8kw system. The temperature in the home, because of its construction, stays very consistent and is very energy efficient. In spring and fall, when temperatures are moderate, the 8kw solar panels power the whole house and often generate surplus electricity that is sold back on the electrical grid. During hot summer months the solar panels generate sufficient electricity to greatly reduce the electric bills. The home has an open floor plan with a split layout consisting of 3 bedrooms, 2 .5baths and an office. Because of the dome construction, interior ceilings are 12 feet at the peak. One of the best things about this home is the view, which must be seen to be believed. Each bedroom and the living room have windows with views of the lakes and river. The home has tile floors throughout, custom cabinets, and granite counter tops. The master bath has a Jacuzzi tub and separate tile walk in shower. The guest bath has a tub/shower combo that is also all tile. In addition, both baths have granite counter tops and custom cabinets. There is an additional all-tile shower in the garage. The home also has a side privacy fenced yard for pets.
Home #2, known as Dorothy’s House: 2,215 Square foot home that is constructed of concrete cinder blocks with a stucco finish and a composition shingle roof. The home has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths (note: bath off master bedroom only has a shower) with a living room, kitchen, mud room, and sun room. The home also has a large attached garage and covered porch, and is nestled under majestic oaks trees. There is a large tree house in one of the biggest oak trees. This home is in good condition but needs updating.
Home #3 known as the White House: 1,200 square foot wood framed home with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, large kitchen, large utility room, and living room. This home is surrounded by large oak and pecan trees in a truly beautiful setting. There is also a carport garage that is enclosed on 3 sides.
Behind and between House #2 and #3 is a center isle barn with a lean to off of one side that is great for storing equipment, feed etc..
Water: The property has 2 water wells that service the homes and faucets around the property.
Hunting and Wildlife: This property has great recreational appeal, and not just because of the lakes and river. Hunting is very good on this property for whitetail deer, wild turkeys, hogs, doves and ducks. This property has been known to be a flyway for white wing doves and as mentioned earlier the lakes offer lots of ducks during the season.
Price: The property was recently appraised and is priced at the appraised value: $1,250,000 cash to seller
Comments: This is one of the prettiest properties we have handled in the last 20 years. It is almost impossible to find this much water on one place that offers so many recreational and agricultural opportunities this close to San Antonio. The river, the lakes, trees, pasture and improvements make this a great package. This property is a must see for qualified buyers and an appointment is required.
