Dripping Springs estate description

The perfect private retreat in the beautiful Hill Country, but still close to Austin and convenient for SXSW, ACL, Formula 1 and more for your big family or corporate gatherings.

Named for the ancient Aboriginals who roamed the vast Australian desert some 40-65,000 years ago,Tingari Ranch Retreat is a secluded yet luxurious retreat nestled in the Texas hill-country and waiting to welcome your family and friends for a truly magical escape.

The Ranch consists of two large homes, the Ranch House and the Bungalow, tucked away in a private tranquil valley on an escarpment with Onion Creek meandering through its center.Together, these homes total more than 7,500 square feet of living space (sleeping up to a maximum of 30 people - 15 in each house) set in a 72 acre oasis. In addition to the chef-equipped gourmet kitchens, and well-appointed indoor spaces, the outdoor facilities include hiking trails, full size tennis court, horseshoe pit, beach volleyball court, kayaking, paddle boat, a life size chess board set, a salt-water pool, and a built in fire-pit between the two houses, perfect for singing around the campfire. Wildlife is always in abundance, from a wide variety of native birds, deer and the occasional fox.


Accommodations between the two houses: The Ranch House consists of three floors of living space sleeping up to 15 people: 4 large bedrooms (1 with King beds plus sofa bed, 1 with King bed plus twin and trundle, and 2 with Queen beds - and 2 air beds accommodate 3 more sleepers), 2.5 bathrooms, (plus outdoor shower) large kitchen dining and living areas with two story stone fireplace, top of the line appliances such as a Thermador range/oven, two flat-screen HDTVs, a large game/media room w/foosball and air-hockey, a small home gym, ping-pong table, and a huge outdoor deck with an outdoor fireplace perched 20 feet above the ground amid the treetops overlooking Onion Creek just twenty yards away.

The Australian Bungalow, 50 yards from the Ranch House, sleeps up to 15 people. This single story house consists of 4 large bedrooms (2 with King beds, one with a King bed plus twin and trundle, and one with 2 bunk beds with 2 trundles), a small single bedroom with twin bed, 3 full bathrooms, large kitchen dining and living areas with a stone fireplace, a huge covered outdoor deck with outdoor fireplace and sweeping views through the trees beyond the pool to the nearby creek.

                              Location

                              A beautiful secluded ranch just 35 minutes from Austin, nestled in an ancient valley where Tonkawa Indians camped on the banks of Onion Creek. Amid a typical Texan hill-country landscape of rolling hills, spring-fed creeks, abundant wildlife and majestic views, Tingari Ranch Retreat is just 3 miles from the small bustling town of Dripping Springs, known for generations as 'The Gateway to the Hill Country'. Dining and music can be found in Dripping Springs, including the famous Salt Lick Bar-B-Que Restaurant, and the Nutty Brown Cafe with its large outdoor live music venue. For more variety, take the 35 minute drive into downtown Austin and enjoy all that the Live Music Capital of the World has to offer. Shopping and more dining can be found up the road in Wimberley; other area attractions such as the San Marcos Outlet Malls and the LBJ ranch are also within a half-hour's drive.
