Located 13 miles east of Llano in Llano County, the 530-acre Pennington Creek Ranch delivers live water, wildlife, turnkey amenities and easy access to Austin, Fredericksburg and the Highland Lakes.
Here youre at the epicenter of premier Hill Country living. The ranch, with frontage on Highway 29, is about 75 minutes from Austin, 45 minutes from Fredericksburg and less than 15 minutes from Lake Buchanan, Lake LBJ and Inks Lake.
Abundant water is well-distributed throughout the ranch.
The Llano River courses along Pennington Creek Ranchs southern border under the dappled shade of legacy oaks and pecans. A gently sloping sand bar provides a rare Hill Country beach where family and friends can enjoy private access to one of Texas most pristine rivers.
Pennington Creek with a spring at its lower end never goes completely dry. The sandy bottom keeps the water crystalline.
There are 3 wells on the ranch: 1 with a flow of about 20-25 GPM that feeds the 2-acre lake stocked with bass located near the main lodge; another (5-6 GPM) that supplies the house; and a back-up for the house that flows at about 2-3 GPM.
There are 2 additional stock ponds, one that offers fishing.
Land and Wildlife
The landscape encompasses a diversity of Hill Country topography from flat pasturelands and gently rolling hills cut through with draws and creeks. Throughout Pennington Creek Ranch there are elevated points allowing you to take in the Hill Countrys majesty.
A wide variety of oaks and native browse plants provide the over and understories. In the spring, the hills burst into a floral fireworks display with bluebonnets, Indian paintbrushes, fire wheels and more, each in their own time.
The ranch, low-fenced on three sides, is home to white-tailed deer, feral hogs, turkeys, dove, ducks and some bobwhite quail as well as a variety of non-game species. Pennington Creek Ranch has been professionally managed for white-tailed deer as part of TPWDs Harvest Program.
The native habitat, selectively cleared, has been supplemented with year-round protein. The pro-tein and corn feeders transfer with the property.
Fredericksburgs renowned builders, Timber and Stone, crafted the 2894-square-foot main lodge using its signature reclaimed wood with native stone accents, to create a home that reflects the heart of the land. The home boasts 2 bedrooms, 4 baths, a high-end custom kitchen and great room with towering fireplace. In addition, there is a sleeping loft with beds for 6 guests.
All of the accommodations were professionally decorated with an eye to rustic elegance and ele-vated country style.
Three pine cabins, situated within an easy walk of the main lodge, give family and friends the best of accessibility and privacy. The cabins, finished with the same high-quality appointments and finishes as the lodge, come in three configurations: 1-bedroom/1-bath/kitchen; 2-bedroom/2-baths; and 1-bedroom bunkhouse/2-baths.
An outdoor gathering area complete with an expansive grill, covered seating with dining table, and outdoor lighting creates an opportunity for casual dining and plenty of conversation.
Pennington Creek Ranch brings the best of a coveted, casually elegant lifestyle within easy reach. Adjoining 960 acres available.
