193.46 acres in San Saba County, Texas
: This property has just about everything a person could want all rolled up in a neat package. The terrain is rolling to slightly hilly with sandstone rock outcroppings on the hillsides. The hills gently slope into fertile valleys with Horse creek crossing a large part of the ranch. Horse Creek carries a lot of water during heavy rainfall and holds water in holes most of the year. There are areas along the creek that would appear to be excellent places to construct a dam for a lake. Horse Creek empties into the Colorado River, which borders the property for about 2,367 feet. Access to the river is good. Tree cover along the creek and river is heavy, consisting of Live Oak, Post Oak, Mesquite & Elm. The hills have similar cover with additional low brush. There is a well-established coastal Bermuda grass pasture of about 40 acres. Huge Live Oak trees are scattered throughout the ranch.
Wildlife abounds on this ranch. If it exists in Central Texas, it is probably here. Whitetail deer, turkey, quail, dove, cats, foxes, raccoons, squirrels and all kinds of birds are common to the property and can be seen throughout the day and night. The fishing iin the river is great! There are 2 good tanks (ponds) that provide additional water for the livestock and wildlife. One pond can be supplemented with water that is pumped from the river.
The cabin was constructed in 1999. It sits in a grove of giant Live Oak trees. The home has rough cedar siding and natural wood interior walls and floors with vaulted ceil-ings and a loft. It has 2 bedrooms (one downstairs & one upstairs), 2 baths (one down-stairs and one upstairs), a loft that is used as a 3rd sleeping area and a large open living / kitchen area with a fireplace. There is a large porch across the front of the house and a smaller one on the back. The home is all electric and has central heating and cooling. The kitchen has a drop-in range & refrigerator. The cabin has about 1000 sq. ft. of air-conditioned floor space and about 400 sq. ft. of porches.
A well-constructed enclosed metal building serves as a garage and shop. The di-mensions are about 42 x 24 and divided into 2 rooms. The barn has concrete floors and is wired with electricity. There are 2 overhead doors and one entry door. Really nice!
Household water is supplied from a sophisticated rainwater gathering system that collects water from the metal roof and fills an enclosed fiberglass storage tank. It then is filtered, circulated, treated and pumped back to the house. There is additional filtration for the kitchen water. There is a pump at the river and the water line from the river can also be utilized to fill the storage tank during times of limited rainfall.
The instant that you drive on this ranch, you begin making plans of ownership. It is an exceptional ranch for recreational use, horseback riding and raising livestock. Come prepared to fall in love with this beautiful ranch.
