Cypress Mill, Texas 78636
River Oak Ranch is a spectacular turn-key live water ranch in NE Blanco County just 40 miles to Downtown Austin. The highlight of the ranch is the jaw-dropping Pedernales River frontage which offers year-round recreation. The newly constructed main house is situated on a hill-top in the center of the ranch offering long-distance unobstructed views of the surrounding countryside. Simply put, this is one of the finest large live-water ranches we have ever had the privilege to bring to market!
The custom Hill Country modern home is 5,020 square feet with a primary bedroom and bathroom, four additional casita-style guest rooms with ensuite bathrooms, and a half bath. The home is meticulously finished with herringbone hardwood floors, limestone masonry, exposed trusses and hardwood center match ceilings, and a fresh, neutral palette. The open-concept kitchen features a marble waterfall countertop island, luxury appliances, custom cabinetry, and a large iron picture window. The primary living area brings in the gorgeous views through a two-story gabled window, which is anchored to the expansive wet bar and entertaining areas inside.
Additional structures include a stand-alone workout barn, river cabana with full bar, and a large fully enclosed wood barn with game cleaning station and additional lofted living space complete with a full bath and kitchen.
The ranch has almost 4 miles of newly paved roads, providing comfortable access to all of the improvements. The perimeter of the ranch is high-fenced.
The 1.3 miles of Pedernales River frontage forms the southern boundary of the property. This particular section of the river is very unique in that it features a 20 acre natural lake, known as Lake Lester, with cascading rapids on each end of the lake. The ranch has good groundwater with 5 water wells which service the improvements and multiple tanks and water troughs scattered across the property.
The gently rolling “usable” terrain has elevations ranging from 1,160 – 900FT above sea level. The land has been meticulously cleared of cedar, allowing for native grasses to flourish, and is dominated by gorgeous Live Oaks and other hardwoods. The views from almost every corner of the ranch are nothing short of spectacular, with no neighboring roof-tops in sight.
The owner has brought in superior South Texas whitetail genetics to establish the trophy deer herd which has been expertly managed for several years. There is also a healthy population of turkey and other native wildlife.
