Roy Creek Preserve Ranch offers a unique 200+ acre wildlife preserve ranch situated in close proximity to Austin/Bee Cave and Dripping Springs. The current owners refer to Roy Creek Ranch as the Biggest Little Ranch in Texas because it feels much larger than the actual size and can seem more like 1,000 acres. This ranch can also be referred to as two ranches in one since there are both game fenced and low fenced areas for diverse hunting opportunity. A little over 30 acres was left low fenced due to the high quality and diversity of native game allowing a diverse enjoyment of the property.
The ranch features majestic hills with giant views and diverse rolling topography. There is great cover with cedar breaks and abundant oaks and hardwoods. The owners have made great improvements with just the right amount of clearing and roads while leaving a blank canvass for you to create your dream house or finish the land as you like. The keynote of the property is the amazing Roy Creek, which is a super strong intermittent creek with gorgeous waterfalls and pools. Although this creek will sometimes go dry during hot dry spells, it has presently been flowing most of the past year. There is also a small cabin and a couple of equipment sheds on the property.
Its quite rare to find such a hunting opportunity so close to home. The game fenced portion hosts around 30 head of highly improved whitetail genetics including Frac-Daddy, Express, Marty Berry, Gladiator, Judge, and lots more. Exotics also include a good herd of Axis Deer, Black Buck Antelope bucks, high-end genetics Fallow, Sika Deer, and Aoudad. Outside the high fence area the owners report spotting Aoudad, Sika, Red Stag, Nilgia, Wild Hogs, and some very nice free range whitetails. There is a blind set up to hunt both inside and outside the game fence offering a fun but challenging long-range shot. There is also one of the most beautiful bow hunting sets where you overlook and shoot across a waterfall to the feeder. Amazing!
Even though this ranch is close to urban amenities, it has a feel of remoteness as if you were farther out in the hills. Very little encroaching development or rooftops can be seen from the ranch. This is a unique opportunity to enjoy a wonderful recreation property close to town and yet have a strong investment in a future growth area where values continue to increase dramatically. Access is excellent via Lost Creek Road (private road), which has recently undergone major improvements.
