Cedar Branch Creek - Llano County, Horseshoe Bay, TX

Key Attributes

Cedar Branch Creek is a live water ranch consisting of 913 acres located on Highway 71 – directly across from Horseshoe Bay – in Llano and Blanco Counties. The property has approximately 2,087 linear feet of frontage on Highway 71, conveniently located roughly 5 miles west of Highway 281. It is approximately 45 miles from Austin and 62 miles from San Antonio.

Numerous springs contribute to the flow of Cedar Branch Creek which flows through the middle of the ranch with multiple branches of the creek creating opportunities to impound ponds and lakes. The land consists of gently rolling hills with mature live oak and post oak trees.  Persimmon, mesquite, whitebrush, and many other native plants provide good wildlife habitat and cover.  Most of the cedar has been cleared to create beautiful meadows with native grasses and seasonal wildflowers.  Several all-weather roads provide access to all areas of the property.  There are no steep canyons or other topographical features that would challenge future development.  Dramatic hilltop views of Lake LBJ, Pack Saddle Mountain, Horseshoe Bay Resort and golf courses, and the surrounding Hill Country can be found throughout the property.  Elevations range from 1,035 to 1,240 feet above sea level.

One water well was drilled on the ranch in 2011 to a depth of 200 feet, and it tested at 100 gpm (it was completed with a small solar pump for livestock use purposes).  

There are no structures currently located on the property, and there are no restrictions against development of commercial/residential uses.  Electricity is located on Highway 71.  Typical Hill Country wildlife, including a herd of wild Aoudad sheep, inhabits the ranch. The ranch is across the highway from The Horseshoe Bay Resort – which includes private country clubs, 5 golf courses, marinas, conference center, private airport, shopping facilities, restaurants, and many other amenities.  It is just 4 miles to the new Scott and White Hospital and Medical Center (an important job-creating development for this area), and roughly 7 miles to Marble Falls. 

This is an investment-grade property in the path of development, and could be a lucrative way to invest in the growth of Austin and the surrounding area over a reasonable hold period.  Annual expenses are very minimal due to ag-exemption to property taxes.  

The airport at Horseshoe Bay is a 5-minute drive, and has a 6,000′ paved and lighted runway with fuel and private FBO services.
