5 acres in San Saba County, Texas
Here it is!! That small acreage place surrounded by large ranches and it has paved road frontage, too.
The Land & Vegetation: The front of the property has been groomed to look like a shady park with a seasonal creek coursing through numerous tall oak trees and a few large cedars. The paved drive sweeps up the hill to the house. Beyond the house the property is densely wooded with giant cedars, oaks and other native brush. A decorative wooden fence is along the road on the front perimeter of the property, chain link fencing was used on the other 3 sides of the property.
The House: The house has approximately 2316 sq. ft. according to the CAD and was custom built in the early 1980s by the seller and has been well maintained ever since. A brick exterior and metal roof will keep maintenance to a minimum. Past the wide entry hall is the great room paneled with real knotty pine. A wood burning fireplace is bordered on either side by full glass doors serves as its centerpiece. The living area is flanked by a formal dining room on one side and an office or media room on the other. New carpet has been installed in all three of these rooms. Two bedrooms share a hall bathroom and the master bedroom has its own attached bath. The master bedroom has a large bay window affording a gorgeous view of the property. A spacious kitchen with plenty of storage, breakfast room with a bay window, large mud room with washer/dryer hookups, enclosed pantry, powder room, and attached double garage complete the floor plan. The rear of the house has stone walkways, built-up flower beds (just right for growing herbs for the kitchen) and a huge covered patio perfect for entertaining outdoors.
Water: A flowing artesian well provides water for household use and the overflow is directed downhill to the creek for the wildlife. The owner thinks the well is approximately 1300 feet deep.
The other buildings: There are 2 buildings used for storage plus a tall covered shed suitable to park an RV; and a smaller covered carport.
Wildlife: Numerous deer come to feed near the house. It is not uncommon to see wild turkeys, armadillos, rabbits and other Texas natives on the place. And it has excellent potential for bird watching.
