Lot Size (Acres / ft2)



Situated on approximately 128 unrestricted acres in the heart of Dripping Springs - the Hill Country’s fastest-growing and most desirable area - Tingari Ranch is an oasis for those seeking seclusion on a luxury scale. This one-of-a-kind, private retreat is conveniently located just 35 minutes from Austin yet offers unrivaled relaxation amid a stunning, manicured landscape that sets the tone for peaceful living. From every angle, you are surrounded by rolling hills, hundreds of mature oak trees, abundant wildlife, and majestic views. Onion Creek meanders through the center of the tranquil...

valley on which the ranch sits.

Three large properties on the estate, spanning over 9,350 square feet of living space, offer tremendous potential – keep the existing homesites as separate structures or combine them into one magnificent multi-generational family compound. Or create a spectacular new build using architectural plans limited only by your imagination. This exceptional tract of land, with approximately 3,325 feet of RR 12 frontage, has not been offered for 30-plus years. It’s an incredible opportunity to acquire a coveted Hill Country estate ideal as a primary residence, vacation home, short-term rental property, and/or mixed-use development. Key advantages include frontage on RR 12, proximity to Austin, downtown Dripping Springs, Highway 290, multiple restaurant and entertainment options and the rest of the Hill Country.


Expansive interior spaces can be found throughout the ranch’s three homesites, two of which each sleep up to 15 for short-term rentals. The three-story, custom-built Main House sits next to Onion Creek and blends seamlessly into the landscape with its primarily stone exterior. Inside, find tall ceilings, an abundance of natural light, high-end appliances and finishes, and large dining and living areas that overlook a majestic two-story stone fireplace. With four large bedrooms (including the primary on the top floor with views of Onion Creek), 2.5 bathrooms (plus outdoor shower), a game/media room, and a massive outdoor deck perched above the treetops, the main house takes full advantage of the estate’s surrounding nature and panoramic views.

Nearby is the single-story guest house with five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a wonderful open floor plan, generous living and dining areas, and another equally impressive covered outdoor patio with outdoor fireplace and sweeping views. Add to that a 2,634 square foot caretaker house featuring three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and an adjoining office with its own bathroom. Outside amenities include hiking trails, a full-size tennis court, horseshoe pit, beach volleyball court, large outdoor chess board, playscape, saltwater pool surrounded by two beautiful pergolas, and a built-in firepit. Utilities include three private wells, three septic tanks, and electricity to each homesite.


This wonderful haven provides endless options to embrace leisure – from relaxing in a hammock by the creek or resting on a chaise lounge by the pool. With approximately 2,025 feet of waterfront on both sides of Onion Creek (which has been dammed in two places), you can easily kayak or float along the creek enjoying the natural beauty. Texas wildlife and bird life abound, including deer, wild turkeys, turtles, and freshwater fish. A canvas for enjoying all that the Texas Hill Country has to offer, Tingari Ranch is a rare estate combining convenience, unmatched opportunity, and an overwhelming sense of living at one with nature.
