266 Fabra St., Boerne, Texas, 78006
Black Star Ranch
Located at 266 Fabra St. in Boerne, Texas, Black Star Ranch is one of the best kept secrets in downtown Boerne. Situated on 15 +/- acres next to Cibolo Creek and very little floodplain, the property has a vast stand of draping live oaks. From the guest cabin to the beautiful main house, the care and attention that the owners have shown to the land over the past 20 years is apparent when you view this property. This property offers many different places to reflect while taking in the surrounding beauty.
The custom built house is a 3,838sf John Moon treasure. Sitting just below Heritage Oaks and just above the reliable Cibolo creek, this home has it all. From custom wood beams trimmed in Douglas fir that are almost 70 years old to the custom made metal murals over the living area, to the large rock fireplace with custom mesquite mantels from the property and granite counter tops, this home is an absolute treat. The kitchen boasts plenty of room and the island is made of mesquite that was milled from the property. There are dual masters that allow you to age in place and enjoy this property over many years. Oversized rooms and an open floor plan ensure a home that is ready to entertain. Covered back porch as well as a covered and insect proof porch off of the upstairs master allow for evening enjoyment outside without pests. Efficiency is the focus as the house has 3 geothermal heating/cooling units that use piped water through the ground to heat and cool the house making it very cost effective to heat and cool. The current stovetop is electric but is plumbed for gas. The water heater is on a loop system for instant hot water. House has a water softener.
A short walk from the house is the 36’x36’ main barn. It features a spacious tack room. 4 stalls that have fans and auto-water systems. Stalls have their own paddock and a pasture attached. There is another barn that has 2 stalls and 2 paddocks and has an attached pasture with it as well. Close by the 80’x100’ covered arena is lighted and has a sand/rubber mix surface. All pasture and arena fencing are Priefert fencing which is some of the best horse fencing on the market.
Included is a well that is drilled to 462’ with a water level of 262’ and a 3,300 gallon storage tank. The well house is approximately 10’x20’ enclosed to provide protection for the well/pump system. There is a conventional septic system on the property. Other improvements include the workshop and an additional tack room/storage attached to 2nd barn. The arena has a water catchment system that can be expanded but currently holds 2000 gallons of water when full and is attached to hose bibs that can water horses. The pavilion is a 30’x30’ metal building near the creek that has a concrete floor and trimmed with stone and cedar.
The property starts out with 275’ of Fabra St. road frontage at just over 1420’ above sea level. Majestic oaks line an old trail that Indians and travelers would take through town and ends with 760’ of Cibolo creek at the back of the property. The land is a unique attraction since there is a large part of the property that is flat to rolling and lends itself to grazing and perfect production of grass for horses/livestock.
