DESCRIPTION: Welcome to your dream ranch in the heart of the Texas Hill Country! If you're looking for RELIABLE live water, an unbeatable neighbor situation, and great recreation and hunting potential, it would be hard to find a better one than this. After the last two years of drought, many properties advertised as "live-water" are not currently "live", but Deer Creek continues to flow strong in mid-August with no measurable rainfall in months with 100+ degree temperatures. Now is the time to look at "live-water", when conditions are the most harsh! Not only is Deer Creek still flowing strong, there are at least 4 other springs that continue to flow in these conditions. This stunning property offers a serene and picturesque retreat, surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty. This magnificent ranch spans across 1,834 +/- acres, with an impressive 1,662 acres protected by a conservation easement, ensuring the preservation of its natural beauty and wildlife habitat for generations to come, while the remaining 172 +/- acres is out of the easement. The conservation easement has an associated endowment account that currently has approximately $450,000 to be utilized for ongoing management activities. With its expansive acreage, incredible water features, and abundant wildlife, this ranch is truly a nature lover's paradise. As you explore the ranch, you'll be captivated by its diverse features. The hilltops offer panoramic vistas of the surrounding countryside, perfect for enjoying the sunset over the rolling hills. The views from these elevated vantage points are simply awe-inspiring. Access to the ranch is a breeze via a chip sealed paved road, and electricity is available, providing modern conveniences in a serene and secluded setting. Brushy Mountain is also a major highlight with enormous hill country views.
WILDLIFE: As a nature lover's paradise, this ranch is teeming with abundant wildlife, including native deer, turkey, hogs, and various bird species. The property offers prime hunting opportunities for the avid hunter.
WATER: One of the highlights of this property is the abundance of springs and creeks that flow throughout the ranch, providing a reliable water source for both wildlife and livestock. The value of livewater on this ranch becomes even more apparent when considering the ongoing drought conditions that have affected many parts of Texas. The significance of this cannot be understated, as even many of the most reliable creeks and livewater features have stopped flowing during the drought. Livewater features like springs and creeks ensure that the ecosystem remains vibrant, supporting diverse plant and animal species that rely on these water sources for their survival. Moreover, the existence of a spring-fed private lake along Deer Creek adds an exceptional recreational aspect, inviting fishing and relaxation while surrounded by the beauty of nature. Along with the natural surface water, the ground water is fantastic. There are two water wells ready to go!
TOPOGRAPHY/VEGETATION: The ranch's topography is a true natural wonder, with limestone hills that offer breathtaking vistas and create dramatic changes in elevation. Towering above the landscape is the historic Brushy Mountain, well known in Burnet County over the past century.
