Location: Hidden Springs Ranch is located 32 miles from Downtown Austin. The expansion of both the 183 and 195 corridors makes the 32 miles a breeze. The location between these two major road projects opens up the long term potential of this property. Today the ranch still feels very private, surrounded by mostly large neighbors.
Water: McDaniel Branch traverses from Southeast to Northwest through the middle of this property. The springs flow into the McDaniel Branch near the Burnet county line. As you follow the cool waters Northwest you will find large established sycamores along the banks benefiting from the spring water (Click for video of Springs). There are several deeper pools of water along the creek ranging from 10-20 yards long with knee to thigh-high water. The topography also helps support 10 ponds throughout the ranch.
Topography, Rangeland and Habitat: The ranch offers about 160 ft of topographic relief, with the highest point being about 1,060 feet above sea level. The McDaniel branch cuts a small valley through the ranch, from there the hills rise to the East and West, giving great vantage points of the creek and the surrounding country.
Agriculture: The ranch is currently being grazed with livestock to hold it’s Agriculture Tax valuation.
Wildlife, Hunting and Fishing: Native white-tailed deer, turkey, dove, varmints, and songbirds. The multiple water features on the ranch offer fishing opportunities whether you enjoy a cane pole, spinning/baitcasting rig, or a fly rod.
Improvements: Located on a hill, barely visible from the front gate sits a 1930s ranch home. The owner still uses it with family and friends. There is a water well that services the house. Additionally, there is an old windmill well near the Northeast corner which is currently not functioning.
Electricity: Electricity runs from CR 224 to the home about a mile in from the front gate.
Other: The ranch is appraised for ad valorem taxes under 1D1-Ag/Wildlife Management valuation on its open space. The Seller will consider conveying a portion of the mineral estate with an acceptable offer.
