5.20 acres in San Saba County, Texas
MOTIVATED!! PRICE REDUCED!! It is a rare occasion when a property such as this comes on the market! The home was built by the present owner in the mid-1960's. It has 3 bedrooms, 1 baths, a large living room with fireplace, kitchen with dining area, a 2-vehicle open garage, utility room and storage room. According to the local CAD, the home has approximately 1300 sq. ft. of air-conditioned living area. Some of the furniture and most of the appliances will convey with the home. The exterior walls of the house are native stone that was taken from an old stone fence. The roof is metal and the foundation is a concrete slab. The home is well-built and in good condition.
A concrete walkway leads from the house to a large in-ground swimming pool. The pool is surrounded by a rock patio with steps leading down to a rock pool house. A sunning deck is perched on top of the pool house. The pool has not been used for several years and will need some upkeep, but it is easy to envision a relaxing afternoon on a hot summer day.
The most unique and intriguing thing about this small acreage place is that the beautiful San Saba River borders one side for 796.8 feet according to a new survey. The river is easily accessible with a good combination of shallow and deeper water that offers great wading and swimming fun, plus some excellent fishing. Giant Live Oaks, Pecans and other tall trees line the banks of the river providing shade and habitat for the native whitetail deer, squirrels, birds and other animals. *The house sits on the upper bank of the river and has never been flooded.
Several natural springs flow down the side of the river bank and into the river. A stone retaining wall is built across a small ravine as a dam for one of the springs and forms a small pond. The water for the house comes from a strong and dependable water well whose source is the spring. The well is over 20 feet deep and the owner says it has never been dry. The North San Saba Rural Water System line is at the County Road and a meter could be purchased if there should ever be a need for it.
The owners moved away a few years ago and this beautiful property has been used as a family retreat. Recent years have seen very limited use and the upkeep has been minimal, so some TLC will be required to bring it back to its best potential, but after all that is part of the fun of making it your own.
