Location: Cedar Mountain Ranch II is located 25 miles South of Llano, Texas and 22 miles North of Fredericksburg, Texas off of the historic and scenic Willow City Loop.
Description: Rough and raw are the best adjectives for the Cedar Mountain Ranch. A large portion of the ranch is located on top of Cedar Mountain. With 360 in elevation changes, views to the South and East of the ranch are nothing short of extraordinary. Approximately 1/2 of CMR II lies in Llano County with the other half being in Gillespie County.
The road system is adequate and provides a good overview of what the ranch has to offer.
LCRA has a transmission easement across and through the ranch going East/West. It is a large transmission line, but with the terrain, topography, and vegetation, it isnt overly obnoxious.
A large portion of CMR has dense cover, primarily Juniper, Persimmon, and Bee Brush. Other than that, your standard mix of hardwoods includes Post Oaks, Live Oaks, and a smattering of Red Oaks and Cedar Elms.
Water: There are several lowflowing springs scattered about the ranch. In the Northeast quadrant of the ranch, a long, deep canyon that is a little over a mile long, contains multiple springs and normally is a constant flowing unnamed creek. The photos, taken in late June 2015, show some of its potential. The owners, as well as neighboring ranchers, have said that the springs that feed into the creek are strong and almost never stop flowing. The location of CMR is directly over one of Texas minor aquifers, the Hickory Aquifer, and the springs more than likely emanate from it.
Access: Access is via the Willow CityClick Road,a public road, which dead ends into private property a short distance from CMRII.
Improvements: A water well is in the Southwest corner of the ranch. It has a solarpowered submersible pump and the original well log states that it yielded 15 gallons per minute at the time it was drilled. There is an old hunting cabin located at the Northeast quadrant of the ranch. Residential electricity (from Central Texas Electric Coop) comes onto the property near the cabin.
Price: $2,375,000/or $4,750/acre. 2016 agexempt taxes were $480. Additional acreage (863 acres +/) may be available that includes a wellappointed cabin, barn, frontage on Cutoff Creek, and road frontage along the Willow City Loop.
