Welcome to River Mountain Ranch
Affluent Hill Country retreat providing the ultimate in privacy
Nestled east of Wimberley and just a short drive away from the best of Austin, River Mountain Ranch sits in the idyllic spot where Lone Man Creek flows into the Blanco River. A community of enthusiastic homeowners and caring neighbors, River Mountain Ranch gives residents access to sweeping mountain views and lush picnic areas, abundant pastures, and scenic bluffs.
One of Wimberley's largest subdivisions, this stunning locale flaunts 5+-acre lots strewn with massive oaks as well as breathtaking hilltop views you can peep anywhere from your bedroom window to your kitchen. Draped in serenity and blissful charm, RMR is the perfect hideaway from prying eyes if you're on a hunt for the ultimate private retreat.
Home prices usually depend on whether the property has Blanco River frontage, high mountain views, or pasture views, the first two being valued higher than other sites. Steady demand for lots year-round pushes an increase in price ranges, with numbers ranging from $35,000 per acre for lots strewn with beautiful oaks to $85,000/acre for waterfront lots.
