Drippings Springs, Texas Homes for Sale

Known as the “Gateway to the Hill Country,” Dripping Springs is a lovely small town that lies 25 miles southwest of downtown Austin. Rural but growing rapidly, “The Drip” is renowned for its exceptional school district and its wineries, distilleries, breweries, and yes, an olive tree farm. Neighbors love the sense of community found in the town’s many suburban-type neighborhoods. Other residents love the country feel they get on their multi-acre properties with rambling farmhouses.

On Wednesday afternoons, community members congregate at the weekly farmer’s market, where local vendors offer their wares for sale. Other days, residents might enjoy a stroll on historic Mercer Street, the city’s main street that’s filled with shops and restaurants and is home to the Mercer Street Dance Hall, a fun venue for music and dancing. The town is a short drive from Hamilton Pool Preserve and Pedernales Falls State Park, two spectacular natural areas.
