From primary homes in Austin TX, homebuyers go west on U.S. Highway 290 towards Fredericksburg TX real estate.  In about 30 minutes, they pass through the growing community of Dripping Springs.  Continuing on, the drive passes by the Texas White House and Lady Bird Johnson Park and Golf Course before arriving at our Fredericksburg real estate offices 20 minutes later.

Buyers searching for full-time residences to raise families, vacation homes, and friendly retirement options may look for Texas Hill Country homes in Dripping Springs.  Dripping Springs real estate offers acclaimed schools, new master-planned country communities, unlimited recreation as well as popular restaurants and entertainment.

Around Dripping Springs, there are many parks and recreational areas.  The inviting Pedernales River is the perfect place for a springtime picnic, tubing, or fishing outing.  At Founders Park, children and adults enjoy playgrounds, swimming pool, sports fields, and watching birds.  Milton Reimers Ranch Park offers rock climbing and fishing the Pedernales.  Ten miles outside of Dripping Springs, the Texas Park Service operates Hamilton Pool, a natural deep-water pool and park for swimming and hiking.  The area is prime mountain biking territory.

Dripping Springs is home to less than 2,000 residents.  First settlers farmed its valleys in the mid 1800s, taking water from Barton and Onion creeks.  Although new developments such as The Lake on Flat Creek, Belvedere, Spanish Oaks Golf Club, and Ranches of Brushy Top, Country Villages, and The Meadows are near Dripping Springs, the community remains primarily agricultural.

Farms and ranches, including exotic ranches, drape the landscapes.  Older historic homes, large estate homes, and undeveloped land lots make up the community.  Landscaping is mature with plenty of woods and streams.  Nonetheless, the small town features office space, retail space, business parks, and a growing Chamber of Commerce to invite relocation.

Dripping Springs Independent School District, heavily supported by volunteerism, serves the families, along with a private K-6 school.  Camaraderie runs high in this endearing “Gateway to the Hill Country.”
