Fossil Hill Ranch is easily accessed with paved county road to the main entrance gate off of FM 306. Once inside the gate a network of caliche roads have been maintained to provide great access throughout the ranch. Caliche is abundant on the ranch and could be sourced for additional road development. The ranch has four cleared pastures that would make ideal food plots for wildlife enrichment. Minimal land clearing has occurred on the ranch leaving a blank canvas for improvement opportunities. Fossil Hill Ranch is bordered on three sides by large acreage properties and bordered on the south and southeast corner by Mystic Shores at Canyon Lake Subdivision.
Location: Fossil Hill Ranch is located in both Blanco and Comal Counties. Ideally situated nine miles from the intersection of Highway 281 and Farm-To-Market 306.

In addition, the ranch features wet weather creeks and great opportunity for surface water development. Groundwater in the area is excellent with the ranch currently having one working well with an electric submersible pump providing water for livestock. The second well on the ranch is no longer in service and it is unknown the scope of work to bring the well into service.
Access: Primary access to Fossil Hill Ranch is via FM 306 and approximately 4 miles down Mystic Breeze to the gated entrance.

Canyon Creek Ranch
***Please watch the Virtual Tour Video for drone video footage***
Location: Canyon Creek Ranch is located approximately one hour from Austin and San Antonio
and four hours from both Houston and Dallas. The quaint village of Wimberley is 15 minutes
away with nice shopping and dining. The property is in Hays County and less than 1 mile from
the Comal County line.
Description: The ranch begins with open pasture land that transitions off the Blanco River
bottom into rocky escarpments and mesas full of Texas red oak, cherry, walnut, cedar elms and
live oaks that have been estimated to be over 300 years old. From atop the Devil's Backbone
and Ranch Road 32 some ten miles away, across the cedar hills it is possible to see the open
grass fields and shiny tin roof of the horse barn on Canyon Creek Ranch. It is a beautiful piece of
the Texas Hill Country, diverse in many ways. A deep limestone canyon cuts through the ranch
and most of the year is full of clear and cold spring water.
Water: Honey Creek is located on the ranch (3300 of creek frontage). Running in the SW
pasture, Honey Creek is a strong-flowing creek that empties into the Blanco River and at the time
of this writing (March, 2018) has a steady flow. There are several low-flowing springs scattered
throughout the ranch. Two stocked ponds on the property make for great fishing, duck hunting,
swimming, or relaxation. The larger pond is supplemented from one of the 20+ gallon per
minute wells on the ranch. The 235 acre ranch is over one of Texas major aquifers, the Trinity
Aquifer, and the springs more than likely emanate from it. There are 4 water wells on the
property ranging from 20 -30 gallons per minute. Well logs available upon request.
Access: There are 2 access points to Canyon Creek Ranch. Both are directly off of Fischer Store
Road. The main entrance is through an electric gate.
Improvements: There are 3 main structures on the ranch that are in excellent condition.
Nearest the entrance of the ranch is the guesthouse; a 2 story, 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath, screened
porch, bonus room that could be converted into a bedroom, and a detached garage with walk-in game freezer. Secondly, the cabin
contains a large bedroom, bath, complete kitchen, living room and screened porch. Attached is
a party pavilion with roll up doors on both sides allowing the Hill Country breeze to move
through. Finally, a 4 stall, first class horse barn with 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment with full
kitchen for guests or ranch/horse hands. There is also an office, a garden room with sink, and
separate bathroom in the horse barn. On top of the canyon there is a viewing deck and seating
area with a new well and electricity.
Wildlife: Under careful supervision of wildlife biologists since 1994, the ranch has nearly every
animal and bird species known in central Texas. Large flocks of wild turkey, mature whitetail
deer, dove, waterfowl, red fox/grey fox, jackrabbits, ring-tail cats, and occasional feral pigs can
be found. There are painted buntings and Eastern blue birds around the guesthouse to watch
and various birds of prey in the canyon. Over the years a pair of bald eagles comes to stay, likely
visiting from the Highland Lakes region up north. The University of Texas at Austin Biology
department has performed research in the canyon floor discovering several desirable plant
species previously unknown to be in the region.
Price: $5,400,000. 2017 Wildlife exempt taxes were $5,500.

Location: Situated 20 miles North of Fredericksburg, Texas and 20 miles South/SW of Llano, Texas.
Description: From deep, sandy soil, to breathtaking views atop rocky Putman Mountain, this ranch has a lot of character for its size. Giant oak (Post and Live) trees are scattered throughout a good portion of the ranch along with a good mix of Mesquite, Agarita, and Persimmon. A recently built pond has been constructed on the wet weather creek that meanders across the property. The standard Hill Country mix of wildlife calls this place home as well as some free ranging Aoudad and the occasional Axis deer. Electricity is nearby and there is a recently drilled water well that yields 3 gallons per minute.
2 miles South of Llano, Texas off paved County Road 312, this is becoming THE place to be in Llano County. 70 miles from Austin and 100 miles from San Antonio.
Gentle land with loamy soil would be an ideal home for horses or livestock. The wet weather creek provides the new owner with an opportunity to create a pond or lake. Electricity is on the property and two wells are served by solar-powered submersible pumps.
Gently sloping land with 90% of the property being in productive, loamy soil. Two water wells of unknown production, powered by electric submersible pumps are in place and are operational at this time. Electricity, from Central Texas Electric Coop, is located on the property. The owners currently run cattle and maintain their ag exempt tax status. The ranch is believed to be situated above the Hickory aquifer so excellent groundwater is a very good possibility. More information on the groundwater status can be obtained from the Hickory Underground Water District.
Subdividing is possible.
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.
