Ruby Ranch is a quiet, rural horse friendly subdivision south of Austin in Buda, Texas. Located in Hays County's 78610 zip code, Ruby Ranch's private estates are beautifully designed custom homes on 1 to 10 acre lots most averaging three to five acres.

Developed in the late 1990's, Ruby Ranch homes are a mix of Spanish-influenced architecture and Texas ranch-style homes. Designed to fit into the lush landscape of mature trees and native grasses, free roaming exotic deer and wildlife, these homes have stone exteriors that blend uniquely custom styles distinctively creating a neighborhood that offers space, quiet privacy and impressive natural landscapes.

Ruby Ranch homes include a mixture of sprawling to conventional 1 and 2-story floor plans with 3 to 5-bedrooms. They feature wood and tile floors, large kitchens, 10 and 12 foot and vaulted ceilings, and huge private outdoor living spaces.

Some properties border the Dahlstrom Ranch hill country conservation land; no homes or developments will ever be built adjacent or bordering these homes....this property is one of them, plus its located on a quiet cul de sac, within close proximity to the entrance of Ruby Ranch Sub Division entrance. This is a considerable feature.

Dahlstrom Ranch is a majestic piece of the Texas Hill Country. This 2,254-acre ranch holds an impressive system of unique caves, sinkholes and karst features, which directly convey clean water to the Barton Springs Edwards Aquifer making it vital to the water supply for homes, agriculture, wildlife, springs and streams. The natural landscapes of the Dahlstrom Ranch are an essential filter for rainwater as it PrechargesP the aquifer, fueling a unique quality of life that Central Texans have enjoyed for generations.

In 2007 The Hill Country Conservancy from the federal Natural Resources Conservation Service, came together with Hays County, the City of Austin, and the Dahlstrom family to create the first private land preservation agreement of its kind. This rare collaboration safeguards the significant benefits afforded by natural open spaces and ecosystems.... the conservancy land lines the entire south expanse of this property, its pristine personal property well benefits directly from the conservancy drawing water from the Edwards Aquifer, an inestimable benefit of property location.

The purpose of the Hill Country Conservancy is to preserve large tracts of land to create contiguous habitat necessary for wildlife to thrive, to preserve scenic views of the rolling hills, and to protect the precious water that flows across and through this sensitive land. The conservancy land borders some areas of Ruby Ranch homes. Given the area is rapidly urbanizing, protected land bordering your personal property is an incalculable asset, guaranteeing our vast open spaces are here forever.

What does this mean to you when considering this property?

The population of Hays County is expected to almost double by the year 2030. The Dahlstom Ranch Conservancy borders the back of this impressive equestrian property offering permanent privacy and quiet, preserving the natural landscape views with the assurance that no additional expanded sub divisions will ever encroach your land.
