RIO BLANCO RANCHES
THE BATHTUB PASTURE
Protected for decades by a well known non-profit, this idyllic Hill Country Ranch is being offered for the first time in parcels. Aptly named after the “bathtub” like depression carved deep into the limestone along the creek below Indian Valley Spring. This amazing swimming hole with its “gin clear” water beckons you to jump in. Incredible views of the untouched valley below the Devils Backbone are absolutely breathtaking. The building sights from the panoramic vistas of the surrounding Hill Country seem endless from the high elevation Mesas. Since the mid Twentieth Century, this ranch has been preserved in its natural state evidenced by the land stewardship of the previous owners.
The Bathtub Pasture of Rio Blanco Ranch offers a varied topography with beautiful water features.
Rio Blanco Ranch is located 18 miles west of San Marcos, providing easy access from both IH 35 and US Highway 281. The main entrance to the ranch on Ranch Road 32 is conveniently located under one hour from either Austin of San Antonio.
The upland portion of the tract is predominantly Ash Juniper with scattered Live Oak, Spanish Oak, Elm and Mesquite. Some areas around the improvements have had selected brush clearing over the years thus improving the habitat.
There has been very little hunting on the ranch in the past 63 years. Whitetail Deer, Feral Hog and a variety of Varmints are present on the ranch. There is a vast array of songbirds, hoot owls, screech owls, chaparrals, raptors and Rio Grande Wild Turkey.
A newly constructed private, paved road from Ranch Road 32 to the entrance of the tract provides outstanding all weather access. Additional access is available directly to Ranch Road 32.
Electricity can be found on the adjacent tract.
PRICE: $11,500 per acre or $2,875,000.00
