The soaring hills around Barksdale and Vance are home to some of the most spectacular scenery in Southwest Texas, and is the home of the headwaters of the fabled Nueces River. Greenhouse Springs Ranch is an excellent representative of the area, with several permanent, flowing springs on site, and rugged, raw beauty beyond compare. The front gate is 1.1 miles off of pavement at the end of a gravel county road which passes through one ranch before the subject. One enters into an awesome central valley, being the Little Hackberry Creek drainage, with limestone cliffs and cedar-covered hillsides jutting skyward above giant oak, pecan and sycamore trees. A nice, clean wood frame home and guest home appear, surrounded by a neatly tended yard. This headquarters includes rustic pens and outbuildings in a serene setting of heritage oaks and monster pecan trees. Little Hackberry Creek flows on both sides over 7,000 feet through the ranch, featuring deep holes with fish, as well as noisy rapids and falls. The creek level fluctuates seasonally, but there is always moving water present on this ranch, most of which comes out of the ground on site. With an elevation change of over 400 feet and nine distinct canyons, Greenhouse Springs Ranch does not disappoint when it comes to drama, and there are five hillside cave shelters once inhabited by indigenous people on the ranch. Excellent hunting for axis and whitetail deer, aoudad sheep, feral goats and hogs, assorted exotics and turkey is a bonus. For the best of Barksdale, Greenhouse Springs Ranch is a must-see!Save Property
