If you have driven some of Texas most beautiful hills between Llano and Horseshoe Bay before, you probably looked twice at this ranch because of its classic hill country setting. Bluebonnet Mountain Ranch sits on 95 acres with variety that most much bigger ranches would love to have. As you pull off of Highway 71 onto the paved ranch road through the custom welded automatic entry gate, to the right you will see a beautiful meadow thats filled with wildflowers. To the left there is a big motte of large oak and elm trees. Just down the road from the meadow is a windmill next to a constant level concrete water tank that overflows into a pond. As you continue you will begin going up a hill with a rock ledge thats lined in hardwood trees. As you drive higher you will see a field on both sides of the road that will be full of bluebonnets and could make great event parking for a lot of people. At the very top of the hill sits a well built 2 bedroom home from 1977 with 1,907 square feet including 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, and a den. It could make a really cool retreat or a place to stay while you build. The views are phenomenal off the back patio of the famous Packsaddle Mountain and off in the distance the other way you can see Lake Buchanan. There is plenty of room to build a few cabins or a really large home to take full advantage of the 20 miles views across the Llano River valley. There is also an LCRA weather station that enables you to look up the weather happening right on your ranch at any given time from online. You can drive down through the back of the property which contains an incredible amount of sandstone rock. Plenty enough to rock the house of your dreams with and maybe even sell some. The back of the ranch has a neat little rock ledge grotto which drains down through a wet weather creek lined with mature elm trees. At the other end of the back of the ranch, there is another pond that always has water in it. It looks like a perfect place to sit and shoot doves in September. As you make your way around the ranch further you pass another unique rock ledge where you turn to head up to another hill top that has better views of Lake Buchanan in the distance. This would be another great homesite or place to hunt. The ranch is a blast to ride 4 wheelers and hunt deer or hogs.
This is one of those ranches that is the perfect size for a couple people to hunt and a family to enjoy for many years to come. As Austin, Bee Cave, Marble Falls, and Horseshoe Bay continue to stretch down Highway 71 past Horseshoe Bay toward Llano, this ranch will also make a great investment property for the future or one to develop now. Its very convenient with Tractor Supply being only 8.5 miles away, swing into Horseshoe Bay only 17 miles away, or get to Whole Foods at the Galleria in Bee Cave in only 45 minutes. Ranches in this area never come up for sale with the area being full of very large ranches like the 10,000 acre Arrowhead Ranch and the 17,000 acre Chanas Ranch.
There are 2,250 feet of state highway 71 road frontage. This property would make an incredible event venue, resort, vineyard, RV park, or investment to hold and enjoy. There are no restrictions on the ranch.
