Riddle Ranch - Blanco County, Johnson City, TX

Riddle Ranch encompasses 14.01+/- acres of limitless potential, situated just north of downtown Johnson City in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. This property is completely unrestricted, carries a 1-D-1 agricultural tax exemption, and enjoys a remarkably low tax rate of only 1.51%. This blank canvas offers endless possibilities for your residential or commercial ventures.

Located in close proximity to Johnson City and the Pedernales River, this area between FM 962, Pedernales Falls State Park, Robinson Road, and Hwy 281, has a long history of being home to large ranches and legacy landowners. It is exceedingly rare in this region to find a property of this size that is unrestricted with county road frontage.

The land is exceptionally versatile and suitable for various purposes, including agricultural, equestrian activities, residential use, vineyard cultivation, large equipment storage, or any endeavor requiring level terrain with minimal developmental obstacles.

For those considering residential purposes, you can dive right into your construction project without delays for a water well and electricity installation – both are ready and waiting for you. Furthermore, a Geotech soil sample test has been conducted, confirming the feasibility of installing a conventional septic system and even a pool.

Plus, seize the opportunity to capitalize on the upcoming 2024 solar eclipse. This portion of the Hill Country falls within the path of totality, meaning the area will experience a complete solar eclipse. With an estimated 200,000 tourists expected to visit the area next year, tent spaces are already in high demand as visitors secure their vantage points for this highly anticipated weekend.
