Property Description

This 405-acre Hill Country ranch is surrounded on two sides by the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge. The property is located in the Balcones Canyonlands area, just east of Marble Falls and just on the western edge of Travis County. The area is well known for its spectacular Hill Country views and scenic countryside and this property has it all. It is unrestricted, rugged and ready for new ownership. Potential uses include a family recreational ranch or homesite, subdivision into large tract homesites or commercial operations such as glamping, rental cabins or other recreational type development. The property includes a 1400 sqft livable cabin with water well, electric and septic and two smaller, approximately 500 sqft cabins that need work.

Wet weather Cottonwood Branch Creek runs through the property and drains into the well-known live water Cow Creek not far away. Elevations range over 320 feet on the ranch from a low of 1,020 feet at the bottom of Cottonwood Branch on the south side of the property to a high elevation of 1,340 feet on the northeast part of the property. These elevations allow for panoramic views of the surrounding Hill Country with multiple high locations and multiple canyons. The terrain is rough, rocky and dramatic and includes some very interesting limestone shelfs and outcrops. The soil supports native oak, elm, juniper, and mesquite trees as well as native grasses and other vegetation. Wildlife includes whitetail deer, coyotes, turkeys, mourning dove, and many other native wildlife species. The property is currently used for grazing and recreation.
1-d-1 agricultural tax valuation is held via a grazing lease keeping the taxes low.
