BIG PRICE REDUCTION! READY TO NEGOTIATE! DAWSON ACRES is located in the highly desirable southeast quarter of San Saba County. Excellent perimeter fences enclose the acreage as it slopes gently eastward from frontage on the Bend Road (FM 580) down into a valley and then slopes up the side of a high hill. A cross fence separates the property into two pastures and each pasture has a large stock pond to provide water for livestock and wild life. Both ponds are brimming full of channel catfish. Seller is leaving the turtle traps used to protect the baby fish from depredation by turtles. Both ponds are situated along natural draws to capture rainwater runoff. Rainwater run-off is supplemented in the west pond by water pumped from a well by a windmill. The deeper east pond is built in a seasonal creek bed to capture rain water and is also purported to be spring fed. Large trees around the ponds provide shade for picnics, fishing and swimming in the ponds. The land has been used to run a cow/calf operation for many years using native and improved grass varieties for grazing. Double box pipe working pens with a head gate are located next to an old barn. The barn is being used mostly for storage but is not in good shape. The concrete slab the barn was built on could be reused as the foundation for the construction of a new barn. Beyond the large tank in the east pasture is a small food plot next to an area of native pasture with heavy brush and tree cover. The seller refers to this area as the deer sanctuary. A very nice elevated hunting blind and game feeder has been used to keep their freezer full of venison and wild turkey meat and will be left to be enjoyed by the new owner. A fancy water gap was built into the fence that is designed to float up during times of heavy rain allowing flood waters and debris to escape down the draw. If you have ever had to repair a water gap after a flood you would truly appreciate this feature.
IMPROVEMENTS: In addition to the barn and working pens described earlier is a 1996 Palm Harbor very well maintained double wide mobile home. The floor plan includes 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, an open concept living room, dining room and kitchen and a separate utility/laundry room. The floors are wood laminate. The kitchen stove, refrigerator, washer and dryer will be included. The water heater and dishwasher were recently replaced. The roof is metal and the HVAC was replaced in 2017. House water is provided by a low-producing second well. The water is steadily collected into a 3000 gallon water storage tank which assures that water will be available on demand. House water goes through a reverse osmosis filter located in the pump house before being sent to the house. A variety of fruit, pecan and oak trees have been planted between the house and the highway and fenced off with hog wire to protect the trees from livestock and wildlife. Raised beds in a garden area have worked well for the seller. The front entrance has a 16 foot industrial grade cattle guard and gate. A security light is located near the three car awning just outside the yard fence. Another bonus is the very large metal RV shed complete with electric connections and decorative lights.
If independent living by raising and harvesting your own food is appealing to you as well as the recreational aspects this place offers in a great location, you need to check out this place. Call and ask for Cindy Prater for more information and to make arrangements to see it for yourself!
