The Norton Ranch is a remarkable Hill Country mansion also known as ‘the house on the hill’. At 60± acres, this ranchito is full of history and nostalgia from the early days of Llano, Texas. The home was built in 1883 by Frank R. Malone, who had everything imported from England and hand-crafted to make this mansion truly a one of a kind.
The 3,760± sq./ft three-bedroom and three-bathroom home has incredible Hill Country views everywhere you turn. The entire ranch is covered in Live Oak, Post Oak, Elms, and Juniper trees with two ponds providing water to the abundant wildlife such as Whitetail and dove. In addition, there are two operational wells on the property with one well supplying water to the home and the other located in the east pasture. The home features a 180-degree porch with rock patio and outdoor fireplace, and an observation room on the second floor that can be used as a third bedroom. From the observation room you can see the Llano courthouse, Llano River bend, Hwy 16, and the Llano airport.
The ranch is located just outside the city limits of Llano, Texas with Austin less than an hour away. A convenient 30-minute drive will take you to Lake LBJ and Marble Falls. The possibilities for a historic home or bed and breakfast are endless. If you are looking for a true piece of Texas History with 360° views and a decadent Hill Country mansion, then the Norton Ranch could be the perfect place for you.
