Property description


Nestled in the heart of the breathtaking Texas Hill Country, the Hilltop Ranch is a true gem that encapsulates everything we love about this region. With its sprawling oak groves, captivating wildlife, and exceptional recreational opportunities, this property is a paradise for the avid sportsman and nature enthusiast alike.
What sets the Hilltop Ranch apart, however, is not just its stunning natural beauty, but also its potential as a solid land investment. This carefully crafted property has been shaped to represent the very best that the area has to offer, making it an attractive option for those seeking both personal enjoyment and financial investment.
Whether you're seeking a private retreat to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, or you're looking for a savvy investment opportunity in a highly desirable location, the Hilltop Ranch has it all.

The owners of this ranch are the 6th generation to operate the ranch and has been in the family for over 100 years. The family owns and operates a Wagyu Cattle Operation in the County and looks forward to watching a new owner steward the property.

The biodiversity on this ranch is unmatched considering the proximity to town and other development. The terrain is consistent with the Edwards Plateau with a mix of dense hardwood, mesquite flats, varied terrain (approx. 1710ft 1810 ft). The ranch has not been grazed in decades, and the understory of this ranch is teeming with life.

Surface Water:
Two substantial ponds are on this ranch. Both are solid, but one pond, the upper tank is said to never have gone dry in the owners recollection. Both ponds could be left the way they are or dug out to increase surface acreage. There are several small rock-bottom seasonal creeks that traverse through the ranch.

One of the most remarkable aspects of this property is the incredible biodiversity that exists within its boundaries. Despite its proximity to town and other developments, the ranch boasts an array of habitats that are consistent with the Edwards Plateau region, including dense hardwoods, mesquite flats, and varied terrain ranging from approximately 1710ft to 1810ft in elevation. What's more, the ranch has not been grazed in decades, resulting in a thriving understory that teems with life.

Electric is present in multiple locations on the property.
City Water is present at the road in three locations, including a fire hydrant at the road. There is no meter set up at this time. There is also a fire hydrant along the road.

All in all, the Hilltop Ranch is a truly exceptional property that represents the best of Texas Hill Country living. With its rich history, unparalleled biodiversity, and abundant water resources, it offers a rare opportunity to own a piece of land that is both a sound investment and a priceless natural treasure.
