Property Description

The historic 'Southwind Ranch' is a one-of-a-kind Texas landmark. Founded as a registered beef cattle operation, the current ownership transformed the estate into a scenic retreat for the church. The main house, alone, is over sixteen thousand square feet on multiple levels with a total of 34 rooms. An architectural masterpiece, this classic antebellum also boasts a 4-car garage, pool, sauna, tennis courts, dog kennels, and well-appointed outdoor entertaining area. The improved pastures and facilities are currently being utilized for a distinguished equestrian breeding operation. Water is abundant. A combination of, well and municipal water, supplies the structures and troughs. The sizable lake is regulated and replenished by an adjoining well. The lake is fittingly stocked with several species of fish and provides an excellent waterfowl habitat. An intricate network of holding pens and alleyways leads to a converted auction ring within the estate. The horse barn encompasses a half dozen stalls with ample storage. Nearby rustic bunkhouse provides another living quarters. The Ranch Foreman Compound includes a comfortable 3 bedroom 2 bath home with attached office near the front of the estate. Lastly the cozy fisherman's cottage can be found on the shores of the stock lake. Less than an hour from San Antonio International Airport, The SouthWind Ranch is located on US Highway 181 between Karnes City and Kenedy, Texas.
