Now available, one of the most rare live-water opportunities in the renowned Texas Hill Country - a large Llano River frontage lot with approximately 400 feet of high bank river frontage in brand new Castell River Estates community.
Newly paved, private gated road access. Perfect build site overlooking the Llano river. Limited restrictions in place to help guarantee property values, but not too restraining to limit you building your dream property. Lot has high bank that quickly gets out of the flood plain, but still gentle enough slope to allow easy access to the river. Come out and take a look.
The Llano River consistently has the most reliable flow of all Hill Country Rivers, and has quickly become some of the most desirable land and water in all the State of Texas. This offering represents the opportunity to have a large enough tract to maintain agricultural tax exemption, with extensive river frontage at a price that is affordable. Castell River Estates is a gated, river-front community with a private newly paved road off of beautiful Ranch Road 152. The River is strong flowing, clear, and wide in this area and CRE is located on the high side of the river, which is the more desirable side as it is possible to build within 40-50 yards from the river. There is a gentle slope down to the river and massive Pecan trees line the slope edge, with some beautiful granite outcroppings along the river's edge.
Whitetail Deer are plentiful, as well as turkey, and Axis deer have been seen multiple times recently at this property. The Llano is renowned for bass fishing, and has been getting a lot of attention among avid fly fishermen and kayakers alike. This is also a great place to put in and float, there are multiple places to leave a vehicle and pull out down river. You rarely see anyone else on the river, and it is truly one of the most tranquil and special places left.
Castell General Store --- (Recently on the cover of Texas Highways Magazine) Castell River Estates is about 7 miles West of the Castell General Store. Every true Texan needs to spend at least one Saturday afternoon/evening at this unique venue. You can grab a burger or drink and sit on the porch or walk down to river with your kids. There are always some tall tales to be heard and a good time to be had at the General Store. If Luckenbach has become too commercialized for you, the Castell General Store is a spot to check out.
Fredericksburg is only 30 minutes, which provides all kinds of shopping and recreational opportunities and is widely regarded as one of the most popular Texas Hill Country destinations. Mason is about 12 minutes, and Llano is about 25 minutes, with world class BBQ and much more.
River flow changes dramatically on all rivers due to rain fall, but the Llano river is consistently flowing more water than any other river in the Western Hill country. The only rivers that have more water on a consistent basis are the Guadalupe and San Marcus river as they approach I-35.
