Liberty Ranch is a one of a kind opportunity to own a 1,559 acre ranch in the heart of the Texas Hill Country while enjoying close proximity to Austin. Located in Driftwood, Texas on FM 967, Liberty Ranch is only 20 minutes from downtown Austin, a few short miles to the famed Salt Lick restaurant and is adjacent to over 10,000 acres of pristine Hill Country land that will never be developed.
Electric service provided by Pedernales Electric. Underground electric lines which run parallel to Liberty Ranch Road. Hays Consolidated ISD and City of Dripping Springs ETJ.
The property improvements include 2 turn-of-the century rock houses: one main house and a foremans house, 2 barns, working pens and over 2.5 miles of paved road through the property, ideal for future development.
This is the largest tract of land available for sale within 30 minutes of downtown Austin. The terrain at Liberty Ranch includes rolling hills with views of the Hill Country, and both downtown Austin and Buda. The property is graced with countless legacy live oaks, post oaks and forests of mountain laurels. In addition, you will find areas with magnificent open meadows and untouched bird habitats. A wildlife management plan has been put in place to ensure the wildlife continues to thrive as well as provide for low property taxes. The property has been cleared of much of the cedar. 2 wet weather creeks cross the property on the northwest corner and along the southern boundary.
Liberty Ranch is 100% entitled for the development of a one of a kind private ranch community featuring fifteen, 100-acre ranches. The development plan follows the criteria set forth in the conservation easement with the City of Austin that limits development to fifteen lots and a total of 1% impervious cover. Existing infrastructure includes a paved road stretching the length of the property and all necessary approvals for development of the site. A gated entrance will be installed at the south entrance to the ranch on FM 967 as well as the north entrance off of Cross Creek Drive. There are a variety of manners in which one can utilize this property. The new owner can choose to embark on retail ranch sales for the fifteen, 100-acre ranches or enjoy the property as a private, 1,559-acre recreational ranch. There is nothing in Austin or Central Texas like Liberty Ranch, it is impossible to recreate.
Driftwood has maintained a rural character despite the massive growth in Austin and Hays County. This is due in large part to the wealthy landowners in the vicinity. But the tranquility and lack of development can also be attributed to the massive investment, by the City of Austin and conservation organizations, in fee simple ownership and the negotiation of conservation easements with private landowners.
