Welcome to Settler's Ridge

The 150 acre development of Settlers Ridge is located just south of historic Mason, near the heart of Texas just off Ranch Road 1723. Beautiful home sites range from three to seven acres each or can be combined to create the larger spaces for the homestead of your dreams. Most of the land features both wide open spaces and mature trees. On the top of the ridge, we offer our most exclusive, premiere home sites that are heavily wooded and feature the most incredible, undisturbed views of the Llano River basin.

Mason is a special place with the classic Texas lifestyle; hometown of Old Yeller, site of Fort Mason (last Union post of Robert E. Lee), home of the largest topaz found in North America, and features the oldest operating cinema in west Texas. The crystal clear waters of the beautiful Llano River run just a few miles down the road from here for kayaking, swimming and picnicking afternoons. Historically a ranching community, the town now thrives on its authentic creativity with delicious restaurants, arts & craft festivals, boutique shopping, antique stores and beautiful vineyards.

Come settle in and settle down at Settler’s Ridge, where you’re always welcome and always invited.

Just 40 minutes south of Mason, you can find yourself amongst the historic German town of Fredericksburg, where you can enjoy walking the streets lined with over 150 shops. Not only is Fredericksburg the second-largest wine destination in the nation, but it also offers restaurants with diverse cuisine complemented with award-winning Texas wines.

The neighboring town of Llano is just 35 miles to the east, with a recently restored sandstone courthouse and the beautiful Llano River coursing through the heart of town. You can’t miss the infamous Cooper’s Pit Bar-b-que on your way to stroll around the town square with dozens of unique shops. Llano’s calendar is packed with events throughout the spring and fall with the The Llano Crawfish Festival, Bluebell and Bluegrass Festival and Llano Earth Art Fest which are great events that can be experienced by the whole family.

Water Systems

Settlers Ridge is built atop both the massive Hickory Aquifer and the granite formation of the Llano uplift. Without both of these natural wonders we would have no Texas hill country. New land owners at Settlers Ridge will have two available water system options. First, a owner can have the developer drill a private well (prior to closing) on their land at the developer’s expense. Second, an owner may elect to join the development’s in place Water Utility System with its 150gpm well, and 10,000 gallon storage tanks with dual municipal pumps. With either option the water will flow freely at Settlers Ridge.

Odeon Concerts


The Odeon Theater is the oldest continually operating movie theater in West Texas. Each month the Odeon Concert series features a musical performance as part of their efforts to raise funds to renovate the historic theater for performing arts, movies and live concerts. Events include artists such as Sam Baker, Marcia Ball, Joe Ely, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Jaston Williams of Greater Tuna and Kix Brooks of Brooks and Dunn.
