Overlook at Pedernales combines the privacy of ranch acreage with modern homes and easy access to Austin amenities. Gentle rolling terrain, fantastic oak trees, equestrian friendly and opportunities for ag or wildlife exemption.



This unique property originally developed for cattle ranching almost 100 years ago, was a premium piece of land that had both easy water access and optimal soil conditions for grazing, but the beauty comes from its westerly view location providing amazing panoramic sunsets settling on the tree covered ridge lines of the surrounding hill country. 

With nutrient rich soil feeding the abundant wildlife and massive oaks trees, providing an ecosystem that exists today and will continue to flourish in the design of the landscape. With the flat ranch land utilized for homesites perched on the towering bluffs of limestone, the community will be able to situate their home seamlessly with the surrounding beauty of the land.  The bluff delineates the living space above and the ecosystem among the bluffs and below. With gentle breezes providing the lift for the birds of prey, the nooks and crannies of the limestone provides the perfect habitat for the myriad of smaller bird species nestled throughout the rock walls and a lower area between the bluffs and the river which is a natural highway for many species including whitetail deer, foxes and turkeys. The waterfront lots have the ability to create their own pathways among the bluffs to the river valley or utilize the community access point via "The Draw." Entering the river valley feels like you are stepping into a national park which is awe-inspiring in the change in environment and the magnitude of pure beauty of the nature not found anywhere else in Texas. From magnificent old growth trees, to exotic plant life that can only exist in this habitat. It's truly a wonder to have this part of our community.

The neighborhood is one of the best kept secrets in Austin as it is a small area surrounded by the Pedernales River that feeds into Lake Travis. With no through traffic, the feeling that we all live here together is apparent the moment you drive by the first car, when it is all but guaranteed they will wave hello. 

The Pedernales River is the common denominator for the community which comes and goes and has benefits to when the river is high and low. The years when the river is high, you can enjoy bringing your boat or kayak all the way to Lake Travis or enjoy the world-class white bass fishing during the spring run or catch monster catfish that love the river and the food it provides. From largemouth bass to the occasional striped bass following the white bass run, you never know what you will catch on the Pedernales. There is always a stream in the down years with plenty of pools to fish and swim, but the ability to explore the river when it's down is magnificent and the hiking access takes you as far as you can go.
