$2,475,000 87.58 Acres
Property ID 3134086

Description

Eagle Rock Ranch history as shared by the heirs and the Texas Land Conservancy:

West-central Hays County, near Wimberley, was once considered the boondocks; a place for folk seeking peace and quiet. The Smith family purchased the ranch in 1954, and the owner and heirs grew up here, riding horses through the cedars and cypress, swimming in the cool depths of the family swimming hole on Cypress Creek, and fishing in the shadows of the rock overhangs.

In 2008, the owner and the Texas Land Conservancy, a 501c3 non-profit conservation organization, partnered to place a permanent conservation easement agreement on the 87.58 acres that comprise the owner's beloved Eagle Rock. The perpetual conservation easement restricts development and subdivision while allowing for the typical uses of a working ranch and recreational land.

Features of the land include 1,100 linear feet (both sides) of Cypress Creek, a beautiful stream that connects the source, Jacob's Well, with Blue Hole Regional Park and on into the nearby Village of Wimberley. Scenic bluffs, over 30' in height, line a portion of the creek. Adjacent to the creek is riparian deciduous woodland, with towering pecan, cedar elm, sycamore, and cypress trees. Other habitat types found on the ranch include savanna and oak/juniper woodland, home to an array of fauna and flora (including the rare Texas barberry). Current uses of the Eagle Rock Ranch include horse grazing, hay production, and children's outdoor education.

The perpetual protection of this property, in addition to protecting the rural and scenic nature of a fast developing area, give the owner peace of mind. Other benefits include the protection of water quality, wildlife habitat, and valuable green space.

Eagle Rock Ranch is a rare opportunity to own a conserved property near a charming Texas village. Improvements on Eagle Rock include the owner's residence, caretaker's residence, two guest cottages and a rental house. Within the four-acre improvement envelope is a horse barn and pens, workshop, small barn and several sheds. There are two existing water wells, a 25,000-gallon rainwater catchment system as well as community water via Aqua Texas. Pedernales Electric Co-Op provides electricity to the property. Wimberley Hydro Gas provides propane to the area. The land is native range with one hay field across the creek. A personal tour of this property will open the door to the charm and special characteristics this property has to offer to the new fortunate steward of Eagle Rock.
