Property Description

14.5 acre homestead and 1/7th ownership of 231 acres

One of the Hill Country’s best kept secrets, The Narrows, is a giant gorge fed by the Blanco River creating a series of deep pools surrounded by 30-50 foot canyon walls covered in ferns and vegetation. When the river is flowing heavily, there are significant and beautiful waterfalls and rapids. Off limits to anyone besides the shared owners, this crystal-clear water paradise has been kept in pristine condition and is a luxury to anyone who has the chance to experience it.

The site is approximately one hour west of Austin between Blanco and Wimberley on the Blanco River in Hays and Blanco Counties. The site can be accessed from Blanco by way of FM 165 and from Wimberley off of FM 2325. Their offering is for a 14.5 acre homesite with a 5 acre building envelope and joint ownership of approximately 231 acres. The land owned jointly is for recreational uses including hunting, fishing and camping and with its use, including the property on the Blanco River, is limited to the immediate families of the co-owners and their guests.

The highlight of this property is joint ownership of the Narrows, a pristine stretch of approximately one mile along the Blanco River. The homesite is very gentle until you reach the bluffs which extend into the Blanco River. On the homesite there are native grasses and moderate cover of live oak with very little cedar. The 231 acres of land owned in common has live oaks, cedar, mesquite as well as agarita and persimmon. The common property has been well maintained over many decades. There are subtle elevation changes which afford hill country views. There is a well at the homesite but no other utilities. A nice road system enters the property off of Taylor Ranch Road and loops through the commonly own land and leads you to a cabin (owned commonly). The cabin, equipped with a kitchen, sitting area, and bathroom, is situated just above the Blanco River. A trail system allows for pedestrian access to the river. The cabin’s electricity is provided through a generator on a solar system and water is provided by a well. The cabin, along with some picnic areas, are nestled under beautiful oak trees. The Narrows Conservancy is 342.74 acres in total, comprised of 7 homesites and 231 acres of common area and is subject to a conservation easement held by the Texas Land Conservancy (formerly the Natural Area Preservation Association).
