Northrup Pipe Creek Ranch in Pipe Creek, Texas, is a rare opportunity to own a large Hill Country ranch for year-round living, with unique natural features and complete privacy. This approximately 5,000 acre property, just 35 minutes from San Antonio and located between the Hill Country and the Medina River valley, is the perfect combination of Hill Country charm, an exceptional property with paved access from State Highway 16 and bounded on three sides by more than 6,000 acres of privately owned ranches. Pipe Creek Ranch, at 1673 New Northrup Ranch Road, is also adjacent to 3,000 acres of state wilderness area, which provides protected vistas and ensures future privacy for the entire eastern boundary of the ranch.
The ranch, owned by the same family for more than 80 years, encompasses four and a quarter miles of spring-fed Pipe Creek, with wildlife that includes white-tailed deer, turkey and dove. There are 14 miles of eight-foot game fencing on the perimeter and cross-fencing throughout the interior, for rotational grazing.
The ranch headquarters consists of a house built in the 1980s of native river rock, with a standing-seam copper roof and a large Saltillo-tile patio with a walkway down to the creek. The four-bedroom home boasts nearly 3,000 square feet and includes a high-ceilinged living room with a large river-stone fireplace and creek views.
The ranch also includes a historic home built in 1910, with all the charm of an old Hill Country hunting lodge and dramatic views of the entire ranch, plus agricultural barns, a guest cabin, a manager house, an equipment barn and an employee apartment.
