The Ranches of Brushy Top is simply one of the most remarkable lifestyle opportunities you can find anywhere — a well kept secret hideaway high in the Texas Hill Country, but less than 20 minutes drive from Dripping Springs, thirty minutes to the Texas wine country near Fredericksburg and less than an hour to the Alamo and Spurs games in downtown San Antonio. The San Antonio International airport is ten minutes closer.
The Ranches of Brushy Top is a gated, master-planned community with large, select homesites — all located within a wildlife preserve that emphasizes nature, views, and privacy. Almost all of the homesites are view-oriented from their 1750+ feet elevations — about a thousand feet higher than Mt. Bonnell in Austin, a city many people think of as "Hill Country." Austin, like most Texas cities, was established at fords or low-water crossings on larger rivers. We have real highland views and rocky headwater dripping springs that feed our pristine lakes.
These highland tracts provide long, soothing, expansive views that have changed little since the Comanches ruled the Texas Hill Country. They also found these same hilltop views valuable for their safety — you will love them now for the tranquility they provide.
Long views are relaxing, but so is the opportunity for careful observation of the incredible wildlife action on display. The daily migrations and seasonal activities of our animals provide incredibly natural encounters because they roam freely. Perhaps, more importantly - they provide a valuable tax exemption for your land. The native Texas species are here along with exotics from around the world... you can watch Scimitar Oryx antelope (which are now extinct in the wild of their Saharan origin) and Axis deer & Blackbuck antelope from India, and you'll love listening to the bugling of majestic Rocky Mountain elk every fall... all roaming free.
