Liberty Ranch is the perfect place to create a refuge from the bustle of Austin, as a primary residence, a vacation home or just some land on which to escape. One can enjoy their own piece of the rural Texas Hill Country while just minutes from everyday necessities.

Wildlife: Whitetailed deer, turkey, dove and hogs are the most common native animals. Elk and red deer have been spotted on occasion. Numerous song birds including the Golden Cheeked Warbler are found on the property.

Land Features: Windswept oaks and rolling pastures grace the terrain and the silhouette of Downtown Austin sparkles in the distance. The terrain includes pastures, rolling hills and several hilltops as well as magnificent open meadows and untouched bird habitats. Legacy live oaks, post oaks and forests of mountain laurels provide beauty and natural habitat for the abundant wildlife and native birds in the area.

Water: Two wet weather creeks cross the project. The stronger of the two crosses the northwest corner of parcel 7.

Conservation: Liberty Ranch is among the largest undeveloped tracts of Hill Country land within 30 minutes of downtown Austin. An active wildlife management plan is in place to ensure that the wildlife continues to thrive and provides for extremely low taxes. Here conservation groups have worked tirelessly to permanently protect this land as well as the 15,000 acres immediately adjacent to it. Those that accept the stewardship of this land, do so with the promise that it will remain protected in perpetuity.

Restrictions: Carefully considered restrictions provide ample opportunity for a spacious home, guest house, swimming pool and driveway but assure the rural character of the land will be protected in perpetuity. All the land in the boundaries of the project are subject to a conservation easement which dictates no further division and no commercial uses. As a result, all owners can rest assured that Liberty Ranch will always remain a tranquil enclave of private Driftwood estates.

Driftwood, TX: Driftwood is a place in the Hill Country of Texas where long-standing land owners, those interested in preservation and new neighbors are working collaboratively to care for the treasured character of this special place. As you travel from Austin down FM 1826 into Driftwood the tempo slows, the Onion Creek Valley unfolds, and you behold the vast beauty of rolling green hills and glorious views.
