Spring has sprung in Mills County at the Gottesman Ranch! New pictures added. While we toured the ranch the turkey and deer were seen all over the place. The pastures of improved grasses, the oaks, pecans and other trees have come alive after the recent freezes and several of the surface tanks have collected a good amount of runoff from the recent rains!
Here is an incredible opportunity to call this turnkey Hill Country Hideaway your next home and ranch! Located conveniently between Lometa and Goldthwaite about 2 miles northeast of HWY 183 in Mills County.
This beautiful 349 +/- acre ranch offers tremendous diversity. You will first notice as you meander down the winding ranch roads, the rich and fertile improved pastures consisting of Coastal and Tifton grasses. Both pastures are cross-fenced off from the native pastures while the entire ranch has excellent perimeter fencing. The transition from the improved pastures to the tree lined hills on up to the upper flatland is quite an adventure! You'll find live oaks, post oaks, walnut, pecan, mesquite and cedar as you climb the hillside and reach the summit of the almost completely surrounded valley. From atop these hills you will encounter views from the various open spots that are miles and miles of beautiful country and blue skies!
The wildlife that inhabit this sanctuary consist of white-tail deer, turkey, hogs, dove, coyotes and other varmints. The opportunities for the avid hunter or the outdoor enthusiast are endless and are certain to create memorable and boastful stories! The owner also reports there are a few caves that have yet to be thoroughly explored, yet another great adventure to be had.
After the adventure of the vast views and exploration of the upper land, you will come back down the hillside and find nestled towards the back portion of the property a natural underground spring surrounded by more towering hardwoods. The spring is protected by a transparent cover from contamination and the water is captured through a system of pipes and delivered into storage tanks nearby. This water is used for the hunters cabin and the various troughs within the cabins fenced off location supplying year round water for livestock. The natural flow of the land is used for the rainwater runoff to flow to the numerous tanks downhill contributing to a water source for wildlife and livestock.
The accommodations on this ranch are a perfect compliment to the land. A custom built Tilson Home is situated in the heart of the valley, surrounded by the hills. The home is approximately 2455 square feet, per Mills CAD, and has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. Once you enter the privacy gate into the expansive driveway, you'll find a covered front entrance ready to welcome you home! An open kitchen and family room is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the family in front of the floor to ceiling fireplace. 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom are off the kitchen side of the home while the master suite is on the opposite side. At the front of the home is a versatile office, study or possibly even another bedroom. You'll also find the guest bathroom at the front of the house and a spacious laundry room which leads into the over-sized 2.5 car garage.
Take a walk out the back door to the inviting covered porch, outdoor kitchen and cozy fire-pit surrounded by brick/stone benches and take in the scenic coastal field and hills which provide a calming feeling of seclusion and protection.
In addition to this impressive custom home there are several other outbuildings/barns. There is a versatile hunters cabin with living quarters, a bathroom and a kitchen all with electric, water and gas heat. Attached is also a covered open working space or storage space. An equipment barn is also nearby and is currently used for tractor, trailer and other equipment storage. You could put to use your DIY skills here and finish this barn out to be your man-cave or she-shed! RV hookups with water and electric are situated under several large oak trees and between these two outbuildings.
There are 2 water wells on the property one of which is equipped with a jet pump and storage tank and supplies water to the main house. The other well is located closer to the entrance of the property. Propane is the source for heating and there are 2 tanks for use. Hamilton County Electric is the electric provider and internet service is with CTTC. The main house has its own septic system apart from the hunter's cabin. The septic at the cabin was completely redone at the same time the main house was completed in 2014. Both were permitted with Mills County and have been inspected.
