Topography, Rangeland & Habitat

Some juniper management has been completed in recent years enhancing a couple of ideal building sites. Live oaks flourish throughout the property. The property exhibits dramatic topography ranging between 880-1,240 feet with multiple areas consisting of over 15% slope. As a result, the hilltops provide long-distance views in many directions. The low-elevation spots offer exceptional private locations that would be suitable for a building site.


There is a spring-fed creek that meanders along the northwestern boundary line resulting in minimal floodplain, approximately 17.2 acres. The creek holds water in several places regardless of rainfall or season. Bee Cave’s annual rainfall (in inches) is about 35 inches.
