Massive $9 million Austin-area ranch for sale is basically a small fiefdom

Thrifty millennials who plan on skipping their daily coffee for several decades have a new shot at home ownership. In the Hill Country, a 90-acre ranch is selling for a few grand short of a whopping $9 million.


The listing for Barefoot Ranch, near Dripping Springs, promises "absolute privacy." The crown jewel is a 7,805 square-foot home with six bedrooms and six and a half bathrooms. It was originally the headquarters of Arrowhead Ranch, now the name of a nearby gated community.

The estate includes hiking trails, a spring-fed creek with two dams, a fishing hole and a "resort-style pool." That is, of course, in addition to an enormous barn. Horses not included.

Inside, the living room is looked over by second-floor balconies, and warmed by an enormous stone fireplace. A private study comes with tall, inset bookshelves and equipped with a fancy rolling ladder seen in movies.

The typical house in the Dripping Springs area goes for roughly half a million dollars, according to Zillow.

If $9 million is too hefty to carry, the realtors of the property also advertise a humbler, 60-acre version available for just $4 million.
