Take in the overwhelming beauty of the Texas Hill Country as you glide down a paved private road winding you amongst a picture-perfect setting. As you approach the end of the road and roll up to the gate of this staggering ranch, it will not take long to recognize that this place is special. Upon entry, all eyes are instantly drawn to sky-high ridgelines in all directions. There are countless features of this ranch that make it uniquely unique. Amongst those characteristics are the presence of colossal mesas in all directions, healthy water features including a zipline, soaring healthy hardwoods, knee-high native grasses, and incredible improvements. As far as structures, the crowned jewel of the ranch is a one-of-a-kind recently constructed massive custom barndominium, sport court, and a stunning pool set amongst the beautiful backdrop of the Texas Hill Country with hilltop views on all sides.

The cherry on top and yet another attractive feature of the Burnet County 757 +/- Acre Ranch is that it is nestled in the Hills under 1 hour from Austin and just 16 miles from the prized Horseshoe Bay Resort.

This ranch stands as one of the premier offerings in this part of the Texas Hill Country. It is truly one of the finest ranches we have had the privilege to step foot on in years.
A spring fed limestone bottomed creek bisects the property from North to South spilling into a large swimming hole with a zipline for loads of entertainment.
There is a recently dug pond sitting just a few hundred yards East of the improvements.
A water well supplies water to the improvements and also serves to supplement the pond in dry times.
This ranch is characterized by peaks and valleys. Hilltops on all sides create a dramatic elevation change. The lowest point is 1,160 ft while the highest point towers to 1,480 ft above sea level.
