At 228 acres and over 200 feet in elevation change, Whisper Springs Ranch offers beautiful hills and spectacular views, especially from its highest peak which is at just over 2,000 feet. There is substantial water on Whisper Springs which is named for the springs here that are the source to the head waters of Big Joshua Creek. Multiple year round springs create several water falls and provide for four ponds and over 1,200 feet of crystal clear creek waters. There are two water wells on the property at depths of 900’ and one at approximately 300’.
The ranch boasts three residences, all built by Robert Thornton, to host guests or provide housing for ranch help. The 3,500 sq ft main house is charming and comfortable with two bedrooms and two and a half baths. It is perched above the spring fed creek and provides 180 degree views of the creek, valley and pastures. There is also another home of 1,500 sq ft which serves as live-in quarters with one bedroom and two baths. The guest quarters/office space offers two bedrooms and two baths. And a classic hill country foreman’s house is 1,350 sq ft with three bedrooms and 2 baths.
The ranch landscape is spectacular as most of the property has been cleared of cedar except the Northwest corner which has been left native to preserve excellent game habitat. The cleared space provides excellent grasses for grazing, and thriving trees include Live Oak, Spanish Oak, Sycamore, Post Oak, Walnut, Cedar Elm and two extraordinary Cottonwoods. Native grasses flourish on this well soiled land. There is abundant game on the ranch including occasional axis, whitetail, turkey, birds and other small game.
The ranch is in a highly desirable location just west of Boerne in the Comfort Public School District. There is also a private school option at The Geneva School in Boerne. Move out of the hustle of the city, but retain easy access to its conveniences with just 10 minutes to Boerne and 35 to downtown San Antonio.
