Property Description

Butterfly Ridge Ranch is a slice of Hill Country heaven with long-distance views from the 35 unrestricted acres. This Wildlife Exempt gentleman's ranch offers an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city without spending half the day getting there. This picturesque escape right outside Austin, Texas, is in the beautiful hill country of Dripping Springs. There are views for miles and lovely level pastures for horses. There is also a charming cabin, sauna outbuilding, outdoor showers, bathroom facilities, pavilions, a deep well, and a septic on the property. This unrestricted land affords a multitude of uses. Several gorgeous build sites with long-distance views are perfect for your dream home, generational compound, or maybe build additional STRs with the privacy that comes from being surrounded by larger acreage tracts. It is one of a few remaining unrestricted, large tracts like this available in the area. When you think it couldn't get any better, the property is currently under a Wildlife exemption keeping the property taxes very reasonable. The property has a charming two-bedroom cabin if you're looking for a weekend getaway. If you want some help paying for the ranch, the cabin is functioning as a short-term rental bringing in nearly $40k in 2021. The 647+/- tiny house can sleep 6 with one bedroom + loft bedroom and full bathroom. There is even an enclosed outdoor shower and laundry facility. The property would also make a fantastic wedding venue with existing pavilions and bathroom facilities in place. Or perhaps a recreational ranch for family and friends to enjoy for years to come. Close to nearby attractions like Pedernales State Park and located just west of Dripping Springs, along the 290 corridor for easy access to unique shopping, food, and beverages. Zoned to the award-winning Dripping Springs school district
