The ±2,728-acre game-fenced Sandstone Mountain Ranch near Llano is an elite Texas property dedicated to exceptional wildlife and fine living. A concerted five-year plan of restoration and improvement has lifted the property to the pinnacle. Benefiting from over 30 years of management, the Sandstone has yielded whitetail bucks from 150” to 210”. An array of exotics including scimitar-horned oryx, zebra, axis and fallow thrive alongside other native species such as dove, turkey and waterfowl.

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 information contained herein is deemed reliable, but is not warranted by Broker or Seller, and is subject to change, prior to sale, errors and/or omissions and withdrawal from market. Buyer(s) are responsible for their resolution to purchase subject property according to local, state, and federal law, and due diligence as necessary according to proposed use. SHOWN BY APPOINTMENT ONLY DO NOT TRESPASS. Buyer(s) broker must be identified on first contact, and must accompany buying prospect on first showing to be allowed full fee participation.

The C5 Ranch is located in Southeast Llano County at the foot of the Riley Mountains nestled amongst the Sandy and Honey Creek watersheds. The C5 is rich in Llano County history having been the former site of Click, TX named after early Llano Co.unty settler Malachi Click and his family. Remnants of the former town can still be seen. The ranch features lengthy portions of both the Spring and Barnett Branches whose headwaters originate a short distance upstream in the Riley Mountains. These wet-weather creeks generate an enormous amount of run-off from the mountains during rainfall and have been cleared to reveal the home to hundreds of beautiful century-old oaks. Multiple tanks are present throughout the ranch, the largest of which is a 10 acre 20 feet deep lake when full. The lake is full of bass, and has been the focal point for many family fishing trips throughout the years with the Grandkids. Beautiful uninterrupted 360 degree vistas can be seen from the apex of the ranch. Devil’s Toenail, Lucky Mountain, the Packsaddle Mountains and the Sandy Creek Valley to name a few are all just a head turn away. Native vegetation for the area includes oaks, elms, mesquite, cedar, prickly pear, bee brush, tasajillo, plus the many different types of beautiful Hill Country flora. Ranch wildlife includes whitetail, turkey, hogs, dove, Aoudad, and other exotics including the occasional Elk or Axis. Much thought and care has been taken in transforming and developing this spectacular ranch into the perfect combination of cattle ranch, recreation, and hunting. Nearly 10 miles of new perimeter and cross fencing has been constructed to create 16 pastures and hundreds of acres of careful clearing lends itself to new grassland and road creation. Five water wells, 15 cisterns, and several miles of piped-underground water allow for an abundant amount of water in every section of this ranch for livestock and wildlife. In addition to the hundreds of acres of improved grasses and fields, revival of original cattle pens and storage barns, the C5 also boasts an updated and restored headquarters featuring all the comforts you’d expect and more. The C5 is located approximately 55 miles from Austin, 19 miles from Llano, and 12 miles from Horseshoe Bay. An owner is only minutes from enjoying the highland lake activities from the ranch. Baylor Scott & White Marble Falls and Horseshoe Bay airport are just a short drive away. If you’ve been searching for the perfect piece of Texas Hill Country basked in an area of history and lore, the C5 Ranch merits your attention.

The two main homes, built in 2011, are nestled in the western head of the valley, below the pink granite cliffs, but overlooking several of the ponds. Both homes are 1,800 square feet with three bedrooms and two full baths, with covered front porches extending the length of the homes that offer pastoral views of the valley and ponds.

LOCATION: This site is located about 12 miles west of Mason in the rugged Leon Creek watershed, one of the strongest flowing creeks known in the area. The location is about 5 miles down a well maintained private easement road, which dead ends at an electric gate. The area is secluded and little-visited, and is bursting with legend and lore, as well as Native American artifacts (known petroglyphs in the area). Nearby Mason is a prized Hill Country destination, known for its unique population of hard working and creative folks, and stunningly beautiful Courthouse Square. Good restaurants, banks, medical services, supplies and groceries are readily available in this uber-cool community, known as “Tennis Town Texas.” For more information on the City of Mason go to http://www.mason.tx.citygovt.org/ or for information on Mason County, go to www.co.mason.tx.us/. Fredericksburg (high end shops, restaurants, jet airport, hospital) is located 35 miles SE, and Brady (jet strip, Wal Mart) is located 30 miles north. Austin and San Antonio (international airports, major medical centers, universities, box stores) are both about 2 hours SE, and the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex is about 4 hours north. Property Address: 4894 Leon Creek Road, Mason, Texas 76856. ECOREGION: BHR is located in the ecoregion of the Llano Uplift. The Llano Uplift is also known as the central mineral region. Although surrounded by the Edwards Plateau region, the Llano Uplift is distinguished by its unique geology. Home to some of the oldest rocks in Texas, the central mineral region contains unique minerals and rock formations. The region is characterized by large granite domes, such as Enchanted Rock near Fredericksburg. Rainfall averages about 24 to 32 inches per year, peaking in May or June and September. The landscape is rolling to hilly and elevation range from 825 to 2,250 feet above sea level. Soils are predominantly coarse textured sands, produced from weathered granite over thousands of years. Native vegetation consists of oak-hickory or oak-juniper woodlands, mesquite-mixed brush savannah, and grasslands. The woody vegetation may consists of plateau live oak, honey mesquite, post oak, blackjack oak, cedar elm, and some black hickory present depending on aspect and habitat. Flora normally found in the deserts of West Texas, such as catclaw mimosa and soaptree yucca, also occur on dry sites. Ashe juniper and Texas oak are generally absent from the Llano Uplift. Grasses include little bluestem, switchgrass, yellow Indiangrass, and silver bluestem. Dome-like granite hills and outcrops contain unusual plant communities. Although ranching is the major land use, level areas of sandy loam produce wheat, sorghum, and peaches. For more information, visit the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department (TPWD) at www.tpwd.texas.gov. WATER: Simply put, this is some of the most reliable, high volume surface water flow seen by this observer, on such a small parcel of land, in a totally private setting. . . . .ever. Leon Creek flows at a minimum of 50-60 gpm during the worst drought to hit the area in decades in 2014. The site is bisected by this spectacular waterway for about 2,800’, with the upper section being the “filter zone” of bunchgrass and willow bacharis which releases and flows magnificently into the “Blue Hole.” This feature is simply spectacular, in a totally private setting, with cold water flowing from beneath a submerged limestone shelf. Water is up to 7’ deep and one can dive in from both sides, and wade in gradually from each end. It is an awesome natural swimming pool, chock full of large fish, including bass and carp. Scenic, colorful limestone cliffs rise up along the lower portion of creek frontage, culminating at a spectacular slot waterfall gushing into a deep, long pool beneath lazy liveoaks. This setting just reeks of days gone by and Native American presence for centuries. Another section of creek, known as the “tubs,” features linked bathtub sized holes that are simply delightful to relax in on a hot summer day, with noisy water flowing over and all around you in the most serene and private setting possible. There is a new 50 gpm water well on site, and average annual rainfall is 29 inches. For more information on area groundwater, contact the Hickory Underground Water Conservation District at www.hickoryuwcd.org/. LAND: The site itself is the ruggedly handsome “breaks” generally associated with the major drainages that feed the Llano River in this region. This is rough country with some spectacular limestone cliffs, as well as rumored caves. There is little to no smooth land, however there are numerous building sites adjacent to the water, as well as on the higher ground with distant views to the Blue Mountains. The place falls from north to south almost 200’ in elevation, and the country is mixed liveoak/mesquite/cedar, with a few monster liveoaks along Leon Creek, as well as on an unnamed creek that cuts across the eastern portion of the site. In fact, that creek bottom offers up some of the most scenic country on the ranch, with mixed oak and elm bottoms backed up to limestone cliffs and outcrops. This place has recently been cleared of 90% of the dead cedar timber, and at present, shines like a diamond compared to neighboring lands. Hand clearing has opened up a rare, old-growth cedar bottom flanked by 70 – 80’ cliffs, and never-seen viewsheds continually dazzle observers. This area is known for consistent, good quality, heavy whitetail deer, and it is not uncommon to hear of 150 B&C deer harvested. Turkey hunting is generally excellent, and there are plenty of feral hogs available as well. Soils are primarily patches of loam with much rock outcrop, supporting native grasses and forbs, which thrive in rainfall and burn quickly in drought, typical of the area. This is what many call “hard” country, not really suitable for any type of intense livestock operation, but perfect for playing, having fun and doing interesting things in a totally private and stunning setting. IMPROVEMENTS: The site is unimproved, except for electricity run to a cabin pad, and interior pasture roads, and exterior fencing. There is also a new 50 gpm water well, well house and underground water and electricity to two separate sites with firepits. Fencing ranges in condition from new to poor, and there is a new electric gate entrance. An old Mason School Bus rests atop some flat ground near the southern tip, adding some nostalgia. SUMMARY: Blue Hole Ranch is the best private live water for the money, in this seasoned observer’s opinion. I am selling it because we don’t use it, as we have all we need (fishing, swimming, tennis, garden, etc.) at the 141 acre place we live on south of Mason, and we spend 5 times more time in Durango than we do at Blue Hole. This place is uber-private, remote. . . and packed with power and mystery. There are markings that could be petroglyphs on a bluff on the ranch. . . there are known petroglyphs just downstream. The water is gin clear and shimmering blue in late summer. The swimming hole has provided multiple families indelible memories. . . there will only be one chance to snag this one, so don’t wait! FINANCIAL/TITLE: Listing Price is $6,473/acre = $1,092,000, cash or owner financing are possiblities. Sellers will provide basic survey acceptable to title company, all owned minerals convey. There are no easements on site other than utility service. The ranch lies in the Mason ISD, is served by Central Texas Electric Coop, and 2015 ag-exempt taxes were $208.74.
