Rare opportunity to own land with sought-after Onion Creek in historic Driftwood, TX. Driftwood Ranch boasts a custom 3,140 +/- sf modern farmhouse situated among mature Live Oaks in an incredibly peaceful hill country setting. The farmhouse has 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths with a 1 bed and 1 bath garage apartment nearby. The outdoor entertaining area of the compound includes a custom in-ground pool and hot tub.
Properties this size and in this area do not come on the market very often. There are endless opportunities for this investment to serve as a permanent residence, weekend getaway, B&B or venue.
The property fronts paved Darden Hill Road and is located about 5 miles southeast of Dripping Springs. Conveniently situated about 25 miles southwest of downtown Austin. Ideal location for a family looking to reside within Dripping Springs School District. Located minutes from The Salt Lick, Trattoria Lisina, as well as multiple breweries, wineries, and distilleries.
The terrain has a gentle roll with many large Live Oak and Cedar Elm trees dotting the landscape, providing a park-like setting with manicured areas where cedar has been selectively removed over the years. Enjoy horseback riding, hiking, or going on an exploring excursion with friends and family down to the creek area. An interesting seasonal grotto watersheds into Onion Creek and is a neat area to explore. Spend time on the sleeping porch where you can relax and take in beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
The south boundary of the property is the center line of highly coveted Onion Creek, which stretches for 800 +/- feet. The creek is a beautiful feature, holding water during many parts of the year. When water is bountiful, enjoy fishing, tubing, canoeing, and swimming.
The property is under an ag exemption with a low fenced perimeter, excluding a small section of land adjacent to the creek.
Modern Farmhouse (Main Home)
The beautiful 3,140 +/- sf modern farmhouse has a “Southern Living” ambiance with an inviting floor plan that goes hand in hand with living in the Texas Hill Country.

Throughout the home, there are incredible reclaimed longleaf pine floors that add a nice warmth to the home.
The kitchen is a wonderful gathering place for family or friends with a massive granite island, stainless steel appliances, including a double oven, oversized refrigerator, a large farm sink, and a gas top stove. Directly off of the kitchen are a pocket office and a large walk-in pantry.
