This beautiful ranch is located on one of the most scenic roads in the Hill Country. FM 580, also known as The Bend Road to the locals, winds through the hills and valleys between San Saba and the small community of Bend where there is great fishing on the Colorado River and the Colorado Bend State Park is just down the road. The ranch offers a variety of terrain features, including lush meadows, a seasonal creek that is lined with trees and high hills with views for 20+ miles. The tree and brush cover is perfect for wildlife habitat and the Whitetail deer and Turkey hunting is awesome. The owners have cleared much of the cedar, leaving the Oak & Elm trees resulting in a clearer view of the ranch and more grass and browse for the livestock and wildlife. Electricity is available throughout the ranch.
Much of the fencing is new. The ranch is divided into two pastures and there is a modest set of pens near the entrance. The front pasture has a water well, creeks and a large stock tank that is reported to never go dry. There is a small cabin (24x24) that has been completely renovated and comes fully furnished. It has a living room/kitchen combo, 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom. There is a 10x16 wooden deck on the cabin.
The back pasture also has a good water well and electricity that serves a new home that is positioned atop the highest point on the ranch with an awesome 360 degree view for miles. The house is reported to have about 1,575 sq. ft. and comes fully furnished. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a spacious living/dining/kitchen family room with a beautiful woodburning fireplace. Much thought for quality, convenience and easy maintenance was given to the design of the house. The exterior is all-weather siding, metal roofing and energy efficient windows. The home is all electric with a super high efficiency A/C system and insulation. The floors are stained concrete and the counter tops are granite. Large windows offer great views from every room in the house! It will be hard to find anything not to like about this beautiful home as a primary residence or second retreat home.
If you dont already have the equipment needed to use on the ranch, well that is not a problem because a package deal could be made that includes an almost new 75 hp John Deere 4-WD tractor with a cab, front end loader and various attachments and a crew cab ATV.
The drive to the ranch down The Bend Road brings a sense of relief and relaxation even before you get to the property. When you enter the ranch, it just gets better! This ranch comes so complete that all you need to bring is food to begin enjoying it, so be sure to schedule your tour of this awesome ranch this spring while the green grass and wildflowers are at their peak. You will be glad that you did!
