SOUTHERN STAR RANCH
3,200± ACRES | UVALDE COUNTY | TEXAS
PROPERTY ID: 3144054 | $17,500,000
Located outside Uvalde, Texas, the ranch includes an impressive 3,200 acres of rolling hills, mature trees, native shrubs and with the Nueces River running through the land, water is abundant and wildlife plentiful. One of its many impressive features is the over 25,000-square-foot old world Spanish mission lodge that was specifically designed for entertaining large family outings, hunting adventures and gatherings. The family sought veteran architect Robert Kaler to design the project using two inspirations; the Espiritu Santo Spanish mission built in the 1750s; the other, the Presidio La Bahia walled fortress across the Guadalupe River. With its vast and many building it resembles a Spanish-style village hence the “Mexican Village” soon stuck as the name of this spectacular feat of architecture. The village includes multiple buildings surrounding a large public plaza. In the center of the plaza sits an authentic water fountain imported from Guadalajara, Mexico. Brick walkways extend out from the plaza, connecting the living areas with numerous screened patios and outdoor gathering spaces. On one side of the village are six casitas, or private living areas, each impeccably furnished with separate entrances, baths, and patios. At the far end is the exquisite master suite with a private patio and sitting area—a quiet place to wind down and recharge. Across the plaza in separate buildings are the larger gathering spaces, including the cantina, or large dining hall, and the mission, which serves as the retreat’s entertainment center with a poker room, home theater, and television/game room. Being located in the famed hunting grounds of South Texas, the landscaped was specifically manipulated to increase, promote and increase the amount of quail and white tail deer habitat throughout the ranch. The ranch began in 2006 a program of planting a variety of native grasses and forbs throughout the ranch with strategic roads specifically designed for first class hunting and management. The whitetail deer herd has been carefully managed under Texas Parks and Wildlife MLD program to enhance and produce numerous deer roaming the pastures over 300 Boone and Crockett. Every aspect of this ranch was inspired to produce the best of everything for the person who want nothing left undone and leave a stunning life long impression. Come see this once in a lifetime opportunity to own the best South Texas has to offer.
