Lot Features

  • Some properties in Ruby Ranch border the Dahlstrom Ranch hill country conservation land; no homes or developments will ever encroach or be built adjacent or bordering these homes....this property is one of them, plus its located on a very private quiet cul de sac, within close proximity to the entrance of Ruby Ranch Sub Division entrance. This is a considerable priceless feature.
  • Dahlstrom Ranch is a majestic piece of the Texas Hill Country. This 2,254-acre ranch holds an impressive system of unique caves, sinkholes and karst features, which directly convey clean water to the Barton Springs Edwards Aquifer making it vital to the water supply for homes, agriculture, wildlife, springs and streams. The natural landscapes of the Dahlstrom Ranch are an essential filter for rainwater as it “recharges” the aquifer, fueling a unique quality of life that Central Texans have enjoyed for generations.
  • In 2007 The Hill Country Conservancy from the federal Natural Resources Conservation Service, came together with Hays County, the City of Austin, and the Dahlstrom family to create the first private land preservation agreement of its kind. This rare collaboration safeguards the significant benefits afforded by natural open spaces and ecosystems.... the conservancy land lines the entire south expanse of this property, its pristine personal property well benefits directly from the conservancy drawing water from the Edwards Aquifer, an inestimable benefit of property location. The well is verified as one of the best producing water wells in the area.
  • The purpose of the Hill Country Conservancy is to preserve large tracts of land to create contiguous habitat necessary for wildlife to thrive, to preserve scenic views of the rolling hills, and to protect the precious water that flows across and through this sensitive land. The conservancy land borders some areas of Ruby Ranch homes. Given the area is rapidly urbanizing, protected land bordering your personal property is an incalculable asset, guaranteeing our vast open spaces are here forever.
  • What does this mean to you when considering this property?
  • The population of Hays County is expected to almost double by the year 2030. The Dahlstom Ranch Conservancy borders the back of this impressive equestrian property offering permanent privacy and quiet, preserving the natural landscape views with the assurance that no additional expanded sub divisions will ever encroach your land.
