Hayn Ranch

A Dripping Springs Preserve

Hayn Ranch

The Hayn Ranch is a rare opportunity to own a gorgeous slice of preserved nature right on the edge of Dripping Springs, Texas! The natural beauty and setting for this ranch is unmatched for the area and part of 1,300 acres that will never be developed! You couldn’t ask for a more ideal setting for a luxury ranch close to urban amenities!

This extraordinary +/-100-acre ranch offers a rare opportunity to own a sizeable piece of pristine natural beauty near the heart of Dripping Springs Texas. Surrounded by breathtaking panoramic views that stretch for miles, this secluded sanctuary is a blank canvas waiting to be transformed into your own private paradise. Featuring forever hilltop views, abundant oaks, a dream home building site, dramatic elevations, wet weather creek beds, grottos, and wildlife galore, all in one of the most desired areas just minutes outside of Dripping Springs and Austin. This ranch sets the standard for premium land properties in the Hill Country!

The land is mostly natural awaiting your dreams to be built however, there is an existing very sturdily built barn/storage building that is 25’X40’ with overhead door and pre-wired for electricity. This “rock solid” masonry and steel structure offers the new owner utility for equipment storage or possibly could be finished for temporary living quarters. The structure has a rainwater catchment system that offers on-site water and is also utilized for wildlife at two gravity flow water troughs. Around the corner from the barn exists a large masonry firepit and an ideal area for camping with amazing Hill Country views.

Hayn Ranch was once part of the legendary Bleakley Ranch consisting of over 1,300 acres. This historic ranch was forever preserved in 2000 with a conservation agreement established by The Nature Conservancy and now stewarded by the Hill Country Conservancy, one of the most prevalent land trusts in the area. The Hayn Ranch is surrounded on three sides by preserved land. While the conservation easement forever protects this jewel of nature from development, it does not prohibit the owner from building and enjoying the land. There are abundant building allowances for a luxury residence and more for barns and outbuildings. With generous allowances and building envelope, the owner can build a sizable home/compound and barns, outbuildings etc. It’s too much to unpack in this brief description so for specific details please refer to the attached Conservation Easement. (See link)

The acreage has beautiful rolling terrain with wonderful live oaks and other hardwoods covering and canyons with springs during wet weather. Hunting is allowed. Wildlife is abundant with whitetail and turkey in numbers; quail, fox, armadillo, porcupine, coyote, kestrel, red- tail hawk, great horned owl, badger, squirrel, painted bunting, dove, and even the occasional bobcat can be seen here. Nature’s best display is on this property!

The property is accessed from Bell Springs Road via access easement. There are established roads to get around the property. This gorgeous acreage provides a blank canvas to build your dream home and amenities within an amazing setting! It’s like being in the middle of nowhere but just outside of town!
