Birdtown Ranch

72.7 Acres in Round Mountain, Texas

Birdtown Ranch

This 72.7 acre property embodies the historic nature of Round Mountain and is located at the end of Round Mountain Cemetery Road (also called Parker Rd), just a short drive off of RR962. Great location and beautiful property!

According to the Texas State Historical Association, Round Mountain was first settled by Joseph Bird in 1854 and thus originally referred to as Birdtown. The community became a stop on the stage line between Fredericksburg and Austin. By the 1880s, Round Mountain was an established health resort and the local businesses reflected the out-of-town clientele, while maintaining the necessary businesses for the year-round residents. Today, Round Mountain sits along one of the hottest growth corridors in Texas.

This 72.7 ac property embodies the historic nature of Round Mountain and is commonly referred to by the current owners as Grandma’s Farm. The old homestead is loaded with Century Live Oak Trees that if only they could talk would tell you a first-hand account of Birdtown’s early years. Dry Cypress Creek traverses the land and will carry water during rainy periods. There are pretty pastures and mesquite flats showing signs of fertile soils. With a little land stewardship, this property could turn into a showplace!

The Birdtown Ranch is located right in Round Mountain at the end of Round Mountain Cemetery Road (also called Parker Rd) just a short drive off of RR962. The property is very close to Hwy 281 and partially within the Round Mountain city limits. However, there is no zoning and development restrictions are mainly according to county requirements per the city attorney.

There is electricity on the property from the old homestead. The water well is believed to no longer be functional. An electrical transmission line traverses a portion of the property.

This beautiful property can offer many opportunities. It would make an amazing small ranch or opportunity to build or develop etc. With some cedar clearing and cleanup, this would be an amazing park-like property and a tract size that is hard to come by. Come see it before it’s gone!
