134+/- Acre Rancho Buena Vida

134+/- Acre Rancho Buena Vida



This ranch is located in Blanco County, approximately 49 minutes from Austin, Texas, just on the edge of the beautiful Texas Hill Country. It is 18.5 miles from Hamilton Pool Road and Hwy 71 West, and 5.5 miles East of Cypress Mill.


134+/- acres with an abundance of live water. The improvements sit on a high hill with unobstructed views overlooking the valley and beautiful spring-fed Cypress Creek.


Beautiful year-round spring-fed Cypress Creek runs approximately 2900’ (both sides along the perimeter) and is shaded by age-old cypress trees. This creek is perfect for fly-fishing and a cool dip on a hot summer day. It is flat along the creek and easily accessible. The springs gurgle out of the rock formations. Additionally, there are two ponds on the property. One pond has its own fishing pier and white sand beach.


The topography has wonderful changes and has a good combination of tillable soils, native pasture, and typical Hill Country with large live oaks scattered about and post oaks, Spanish oak, and white oak, as well as cypress. The ranch is adjoined by large legacy ranches and its direct neighbor is in a conservation easement. A private road dead ends into the property which ensures utmost privacy and peace.


The improvements are nestled in a compound setting under the shade of oaks. The decor is a mixture of Hill Country rustic and modern Texas chic. The main home sits on a cliff overlooking the valley and has been recently remodeled down to the studs. It consists of 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, the kitchen of one’s dreams, 2 living areas, and a wrap-around porch with views to die for.

The Trot house is situated near the negative edge pool and hot tub with its huge covered outdoor kitchen and entertaining area and half bath. This house is 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with its own kitchen, outdoor barbecue area, and balconies perfect for generational entertaining. The Lodge is just a few steps away and perfect for families and kids. It has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms with its own kitchen, living area, and additional sleeping accommodations.

There is an airstream trailer, better known as the Cowboy Motel, with 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, and its own kitchen ready for the kids to fight over. An RV hookup can be found next to the utility barn, near the Trot house. All these surround a beautiful, shaded firepit and are a short walk from the football field complete with its own goal, covered basketball court, batting cages, and every imaginable activity to keep the kids entertained, even the big kids!
