Location: Cedar Mountain Ranch 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 approximately 360 feet in elevation changes, views to the South and East of the ranch are nothing short of extraordinary. Almost 1/3 of CMR lies in Llano County with the remainder being in Gillespie County. The road system is adequate and provides a good overview of what the ranch has to offer. A large portion of CMR is densely covered, primarily in 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. Cedar Mountain Ranch also has one of the highest concentrations of Mountain Laurel that I've seen on a single property in a long time. The Lower Colorado River Authority has a transmission easement and the line runs East/West through the ranch. Water: In the Northeast quadrant of the ranch, a long, deep canyon, 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: There are three access points to public roads. Two of the access points are directly off of the Willow City Loop (over 5000 of Loop frontage) and the other is off of the Willow CityClick Road, which dead ends into private property a short distance from CMR. Improvements: There is an old hunting shack located at the Northeast quadrant of the ranch. Residential electricity (from Central Texas Electric Coop) comes onto the property near the cabin. A water well, near the center of the property, contains a solar-powered pump logged at 30gpm to supply water for livestock and wildlife. Cabin, shop/barn(as seen in video) with septic, 60gpm water well, and approximately 100 additional acres can be purchased. Inquire with listing broker for more details.

The excellent topography of the ranch is further enhanced by the two and one half miles that Bluff Creek carves across the property, including where the creek empties into the Colorado. The sandy and clay loams that make up the banks of Bluff Creek, that are 30 feet high in places, support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers and grasses. Bluff Creek Ranch has two and a half miles of frontage on paved FM 765 with a gated entrance leading to miles of good all-weather roads to all areas of the ranch. The ranch is low-fenced with one large pasture. The rest of the ranch is covered in an abundant variety of grasses, brush and trees offering a beautiful diversity of ecological zones across the property.

The varied topography and nutrient sources of the ranch support an abundance of Whitetail, Aoudad, dove, quail, and turkey. The area is known for great Whitetail hunting and over the top turkey hunting. The awe-inspiring topography rising up from the Colorado River make Bluff Creek Ranch the ultimate canvas for your perfect Hill Country creation! There is room here for multiple homesites with distinct dramatic views down to the river and across the countryside. Improvements to the hunting infrastructure and the existing runway location would create a very desirable commercial hunting operation and a hunter’s paradise.

OVERVIEW Rancho Mareeba is ruggedly handsome and lies in the scenic, rolling terrain of northern Blanco County in the Texas Hill Country. The crown jewels of this ranch are the commanding views of North Grape Creek and its continuous live water, privacy, an elegant estate home, and excellent location relative to Fredericksburg, Austin, and San Antonio. LOCATION & ACCESS Charming Fredericksburg, TX (great restaurants, music venues, wineries, shopping, hospital, grocery stores, full service 24/7 airport) is a scenic 30-minute drive from the front gate. Austin is a 1 hour 15 min drive via US-281 & US-290 and San Antonio is 1.5 hours away via US-281. The ranch sits in a convenient location between Fredericksburg and Johnson City. WATER North Grape Creek Featuring over 1,590' of both sides of North Grape Creek, typically one of the better perennial streams found in Blanco County. Cold clear water runs from beneath limestone ledges bordering a beautiful deep blue hole full of fish, which the owner says maintains its current depth even during dry hot summer months. Colorful cliffs soar around and above it, and the owners have constructed a zip line for the adventure minded thrill seekers. The North Grape Creek Sub-Watershed North Grape Creek rises one-mile east of TX-16 in central Gillespie County. Intermittent in its upper reaches, the stream follows an easterly course for 26 miles to its mouth on the Pedernales River, northwest of Johnson City in western Blanco County. Rising in the hills of the eastern Edwards Plateau and crossing into the Central Basin, North Grape Creek passes through an area of flat to rolling terrain surfaced by sandy to clayey loams that support grasses, scrub brush, and open stands of live oak, mesquite, and Ashe juniper. Water Well One water well, located near the house, was drilled in February 2009. The well was drilled to a depth of 485’, hitting water at 102’ with a yield of 35 GPM. LAND & WILDLIFE Rancho Mareeba exemplifies what a well-managed, diverse Texas Hill Country ranch should be. A 4.25-acre pasture sits on the west side of North Grape Creek with deep soils and is ideal for creating a wildlife food plot or for growing high-quality hay. The creek bottom is dotted with American Sycamore, Live Oak and Pecan trees. Native grasses, mixed brush, and Live Oaks cover the higher elevations of the property. The owners have carefully groomed areas around the ranch creating a private, park-like feel. The upper-section of the ranch is dominated by two impressive hills that provide beautiful views of the valley and water below. The elevation ranges from a low of 1,200 along the creek up to 1,380 at the north end of the property. Abundant wildlife includes: White-tailed deer, Rio Grande turkey, feral hogs, and grey fox. If birding is your hobby, Rancho Mareeba will brighten your day with its many species. The riparian corridor ecosystem of the ranch provides habitat to many species of birds including owls, hawks, ducks, and dove. A heavy mix of native songbirds can also be found due to the distinct habit types on the ranch. Even with the vast landscapes of the Texas Hill Country, it is a challenge to find the ideal property that encompasses all of the criteria most often cited by buyers including convenient access, live flowing water, abundant wildlife, onsite sporting and recreation, private access, proximity to urban conveniences, topographic diversity and gorgeous scenery.   IMPROVEMENTS Architectural Description (written by Mark Canada-the architect) DESIGN PARAMETERS Situated on a sloping ridgeline facing west 60’ above Grape Creek on the owner's 168-acre ranch, the primary design intent of this ranch compound was to take advantage of the Hill Country views. This design goal was complicated by the desire at the same time to shield its views and visibility of the ranch house of its only neighbor. It was decided that the building program would be divided into 3 main elements: The Main Ranch House, the Bunk House and the Garage/Auto Loggia. The Bunk House would primarily be used during visits by the Owner's extended family. The 'U' shaped compound surrounds a landscaped courtyard that is further defined by a stone courtyard wall enclosing and protecting the 4,000 square foot deer-proof garden. GREEN/SUSTAINABLE FEATURES Rancho Mareeba employs Green/Sustainable features to reduce the carbon footprint and it is thought that the project will eventually become carbon neutral. The green/sustainable design and construction features include: 1) Passive Solar Energy Design Techniques 2) Comprehensive Thermal Insulation, Radiant Barrier and Low Air Infiltration Building Skin 3) Landscape and Irrigation planning for Wildlife Habitat status DESIGN SOLUTION The Main Ranch House comprises 3,663 square feet of air-conditioned space. It enjoys the dominant view of the 100-foot Grape Creek cliffs to the south, the creek and distant ranch pasture views to the west and the winding upstream Grape Creek view to the north. The 'styling' of the complex is Contemporary Texas Mediterranean. Characterized by a gently sloped roofline, Mexican terra cotta roof tiles, deep overhangs, ipe' exposed roof rafters and beams, locally harvested stone walls, stucco and steel railings. Rancho Mareeba nestles comfortably into its ridgeline. The Bunk House comprises about 1,926 square feet and contains a lounge, 3 bunkrooms and 3 baths. The 3 elements of the complex, {The Ranch House, The Bunk House and the Garage,} are separated by 2 Loggias. The Bunk Loggia is designed for outdoor living and features a fireplace, sloped wood ceiling and an outdoor shower. It has views of both the Garden Courtyard and the creek views to the north. The Auto Loggia serves as a carport and owner's entrance, as well as a second outdoor living area, also adjacent to the garden courtyard. The Creek Terrace is the primary and largest of the outdoor living areas besides the courtyard garden. It reaches in an arc towards Grape Creek and has a commanding 180-degree view of the ranch views below. There is a Summer Kitchen and outdoor dining area within the Creek Terrace. TEXAS HILL COUNTRY VERNACULAR ARCHITECTURE Texas is blessed with a rich cultural architectural heritage. German, Czech, Spanish and early Texas pioneer influences can be seen in contemporary residential architectural design today. With the design of Rancho Mareeba, we relied primarily upon Spanish vernacular building styles along with incorporating passive solar energy techniques to give us a distinctive aesthetic. Texas limestone was harvested from the creek bed, as well as recycled from the necessary excavation, and reused as a veneer for the walls, pavement for the walkways and retaining walls. Harvested large limestone shelf rock was used as a work counter for the potting station in the garden and the outdoor Summer Kitchen at the Creek Terrace. THE GREAT ROOM Rancho Mareeba features one open space that contains the Living Area, Dining Area and Kitchen. This open plan concept allows all three spaces, arguably the primary spaces of the house, to all benefit from the spectacular views of the cliffs, pasture and creek. A stone and stucco 2-sided fireplace helps to divide the spaces and give each its own identity. The two sidewalls are built from the site's stone. The 3 arched glass windows are 12'-6" tall and are shaded by deep overhangs and a trellis, which extends 12' towards the west onto the Creek Terrace. The sloped ceilings are capped with a clerestory 24' above the floor. Cut limestone floors finish the space and give it an allure of rustic elegance. THE ARCHITECT'S ROLE It was thought, while designing and building this project, that the architect's input could not improve this beautiful property, only work with it and make it more hospitable on which to live. While taking inspiration from his forbearers, and employing ancient knowledge of the sun and wind, the architect hopes to gently nestle an aesthetic structure along the beautiful ridgeline from which its inhabitants can enjoy nature's God given views. Building with care and craft so that the results survive a hundred years may be the most green/sustainable feature that we as architects can employ. It is hoped that the Owner's great, great, great grandchildren will be enjoying the same ranch views, breezy loggias and interior perspectives through arched stone openings in 100 years that are being built today. A responsible stewardship of this land, by Owner, Architect and General Contractor through the use of green/sustainable building techniques, should guarantee use of this structure with minimal negative impact upon our environment. VERNACULAR ARCHITECTURE Texas is blessed with a rich cultural architectural heritage. German, Czech, Spanish and early Texas pioneer influences can be seen in contemporary residential architectural design today. With the design of Rancho Mareeba, we relied primarily upon Spanish vernacular building styles along with incorporating passive solar energy techniques to give us a distinctive aesthetic. -Mark Canada FINANCIAL / TITLE RANCHO MAREEBA, as described herein (168.42 ac), is offered at $4,900,000 Cash or at Terms acceptable solely at the discretion of the Seller.

The TEXAS HILL COUNTRY was forever changed for the better thanks to the efforts of one of its most famous sons -- President Lyndon B. Johnson. Part of his legacy includes his almost Herculean efforts to bring electricity to the rural landowners near his family's hometown of Stonewall, Texas. Later, his family's ranching enterprise encompassed thousands of acres of land between Johnson City and Stonewall. While much of that land was eventually incorporated into the US National Park, parts of his family's ranchland was kept private and some of it has been transferred to other landowners over the years. Now this historic plus-or-minus 142 acre property that was part of that Johnson heritage is now available as the "Big Sky Ranch" in Blanco County, Texas. The hilltops of the Big Sky Ranch provide long-range views in every direction, including sweeping panoramic vistas from one of the tallest peaks in Blanco County. With over 200 feet in elevation change from peak to valley, the ranch has incredible topography, unique improvements, and endless opportunities to enjoy this HILL COUNTRY masterpiece. Located just minutes from Blanco and Johnson City, 25 minutes to Fredericksburg, and an hour to San Antonio or Austin, the ranch is situated in the heart of the Texas hill country. This property is gated and fenced and boasts an excellent all-weather road system that provides access to every corner of the ranch. Ponds, large mature oak trees, rolling hills, and native grassland pastures contribute to the ecosystem that is home to numerous species of wildlife and game animals. Improvements include an exceptional 2,160 square foot main house perched atop of one of the towering hills, allowing for views in every direction. This three-bedroom, two-bath home has several outdoor porches to take in those vistas, and the vaulted ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows provide a vantage point to enjoy the scenery from indoors, too. Three rock fireplaces, wood flooring, and updated kitchen and bathrooms are some of the features found within this home. The property also boasts a 12,000 square foot climate-controlled building with concrete floors, office, bathrooms, kitchen, workshop, and studio. The movable walls can support multiple configurations and uses such as a vintage car display, wine storage, warehouse, or event venue. Thanks to its coveted location, exceptional ecology, and unique quality improvements, the Big Sky Ranch offers almost endless opportunities and options for a new owner to enjoy and share this historic part of the Texas hill country.

OVERVIEW Canyon Creek Ranch lies in the scenic, rolling terrain of central Gillespie County, 6.3 miles northwest of Fredericksburg along the west side of US-87. Lightly hunted and grazed over the past 26 years, this property exemplifies what a well-managed, diverse Texas Hill Country ranch should be. Abundant wildlife includes White-tailed deer, Axis deer, Sika deer, Rio Grande turkey, and Mourning dove. The crown jewel of this property is an unnamed creek with live flowing water and a hard, limestone bottom, running for approximately 3,160’ or 0.57 miles east-west through the southern section of the property, set in a beautiful wooded bottom. Canyon Creek Ranch is bounded on the north, west, and south by a 577-ac properly managed, conservation-oriented ranch. LOCATION & ACCESS Charming Fredericksburg (great restaurants, music venues, shopping, hospital, supplies) is an easy 10-minute drive from the property gate. Central Austin is a 1-hour, 50-minute drive via US-87 and US-290 and San Antonio is 1-hour, 30-minute drive via US-87 and I-10. The property has 4,025’ or 0.76 miles of frontage along the west line of US-87 with two (2) TxDOT permitted entrances. WATER Creeks An unnamed creek which eventually flows into Barons Creek, runs for approximately 3,160’ or 0.57 miles east-west through the southern section of the property. With live flowing water, a hard, limestone bottom, and towering cliffs along the south side, this creek offers an opportunity to impound small or large pools of water in a picturesque creek bottom setting, dotted with native Pecan, Live oak, Spanish oak, and a diverse variety of other native tree species. True live water in such close proximity to Fredericksburg makes this a very unique offering. There is also a seasonal, secondary drainage that flows north-south into the primary creek that runs for approximately 2,385’ or 0.45 miles. This drainage offers further opportunity to develop water for aesthetic beauty, wildlife, and/or livestock. Windmill Water Well There is an old water well on the property, but it has not been in service during the current ownership. There is a galvanized windmill that sits over the well head in average condition. Groundwater is strong in the area (see area well data map enclosed within this package) and it is reasonable that the well could be re-worked and brought back into production. LAND & WILDLIFE The habitat in the upper and middle portions of the property consists of an undulating Live Oak Savannah, interspersed with Blackjack Oak, Elm, Texas Persimmon, Shinnery oak, and numerous natural openings. From these areas of the ranch there are a multitude of potential homesites with tremendous views to the south and west. The topography stair-steps down to the south towards the creek with numerous Live oak covered shelves that overlook the creek bottom. With deeper soils, the open portions of these shelves are ideal spots for wildlife food plots. The gorgeous creek bottom which runs parallel the primary creek is a bowhunter’s dream, with many varieties of towering mature trees. The elevation ranges from a low of 1,930’ along the primary creek to 2,075’ at the northern end of the ranch. This conservation-minded landowner has only lightly hunted and grazed this property since purchasing it in 1993. As a result, the property hosts robust numbers of White-tailed deer, Axis deer, Sika deer, Rio Grande turkey, and Mourning dove. IMPROVEMENTS Power, Ranch Roads, & Fencing Power provided by Central Texas Electric Co-op (CTEC) extends across a portion of the property along the northern end of the tract. Access throughout the property is good and is provided by a series of typical ranch roads. The boundary along US-87 is low fenced and in good condition. The west and south boundaries are not presently fenced. There is also an old, rustic livestock shed with pens that adds to the character of the property. This area of Gillespie county has been affected by oak wilt and the landowner has pushed and piled many of the affected trees. Once burning is permitted by the county, the landowner will burn, smooth, and re-seed those areas. SUMMARY Canyon Creek Ranch is a scenic, well-managed ranch with an incredibly diverse ecosystem, an abundance of natural water, and outstanding views of the Texas Hill Country.

OVERVIEW Oak Ridge Ranch lies in the quiet, scenic terrain of central Gillespie County, 6.2 miles west northwest of Fredericksburg along the west side of Loudon Rd. The defining feature of this ranch is Live Oak Creek, which runs for 1,425’ or 0.27 miles west-east through the middle of the property. True live water on a tract this size so close to Fredericksburg is indeed rare. There are 40±-acres on the south side of the creek and 37±-acres on the north side. The land south of the creek is characterized by a series of tiers dotted with mature Post oak and Live oak, offering multiple, private building sites overlooking Live Oak Creek. On the north side of the creek, the property includes 11±-acres of open pasture, surrounded by elevated ground with scattered Live oaks that overlook the field and Live Oak Creek. The property is being offered whole or in divided parcels of 40±-acres (Tract 1) and 37±-acres (Tract 2). LOCATION & ACCESS Charming Fredericksburg (great restaurants, music venues, shopping, hospital, supplies) is an easy 10-minute drive from the property. Central Austin is a 1-hour, 50-minute drive via US-290 and San Antonio is 1-hour, 30-minute drive via US-87 and I-10. The property has 3,125’ or 0.59 miles of frontage along the west line of Loudon Rd. The 40±-acres on the south side of Live Oak Creek (Tract 1) has 1,050’ or 0.20 miles of frontage and the 37±-acres on the north side of Live Oak Creek (Tract 2) has 2,075’ or 0.39 miles of frontage. WATER Live Oak Creek Live Oak Creek, which eventually flows into the Pedernales River, runs for approximately 1,425’ or 0.27 miles west-east through the middle of the property. With live, clear flowing water and towering mature trees on both sides, this creek offers an opportunity to impound small or large pools of water in a picturesque, private setting. True live water in such close proximity to Fredericksburg makes this a very unique offering. Windmill Water Well There is a windmill water well on the property that is currently not in service. According to the landowner, the well was on the ranch when the family purchased the land in 1970 and was historically a strong producing source of water. It is reasonable to assume that the galvanized windmill that sits over the well head could be serviced and the well could be brought back into production. Groundwater is strong in the area (see area well data map enclosed within this package). LAND & WILDLIFE On the 40±-acres along the south side of Live Oak Creek, the land rises up into a series of undulating tiers from Loudon Rd. providing many options for potential homesites. From any of these tiers, there are excellent views to the north overlooking the creek. Mature Post oak and Live oak trees dominate the landscape in a rolling, savannah-like setting. Along the west boundary, the landowner has left an 8±-ac buffer consisting of scattered Live oak, mature cedar, and other native tree varieties. This buffer is a preferred bedding area for the local herd of white-tailed deer and also serves as a sanctuary for other native wildlife. The 37±-acres of land on the north side of Live Oak Creek features an 11±-ac open pasture, which is surrounded by a horseshoe-shaped ridge dotted with Live oak. With deeper soils, the pasture on this part of the property would be well-suited for horses, other livestock, or cultivation. Scenic views to the west and north are excellent. The elevation ranges from a low of 1,752’ along the creek to 1,826’on the south side and 1,815 on the north side. The landowners are conservation-minded and have been excellent land stewards throughout their ownership. With only light grazing and hunting pressure, the property hosts robust numbers of White-tailed deer, Rio Grande turkey, and Mourning dove. Axis deer do travel through the property on occasion. IMPROVEMENTS Power, Ranch Roads, & Fencing Power provided by Central Texas Electric Co-op (CTEC) extends through the 40±-acre portion of the property near the west boundary and extends across the creek into the 37±-ac section. Access throughout the property is good and is provided by a series of typical ranch roads. The west boundary of the 40±-ac is low fenced and is in good condition. The west and north boundaries of the 37±-ac are also low fenced and are in good condition. Big Bird Trail, a private road used for access to the neighboring 166-ac property, runs along the north side of the south boundary of the 40±-ac. The road is lightly used as the owner to that property is not a resident of the local area. SUMMARY Oak Ridge Ranch is a scenic, private live water property with outstanding views of the Texas Hill Country that has been impeccably managed. With its natural beauty, mature tree cover, varied topography, and nearby location relative to Fredericksburg, this property offers an authentic Hill Country land experience that anyone would enjoy. The property is being offered whole or in divided parcels of 40±-acres (Tract 1) and 37±-acres (Tract 2).
