Hill Country hunting land, cabin and river lot, San Saba Co., TX: NEW PRICE
Agent: Rick Fairchild No commentsPrice :
This 587 acre Hill Country retreat is conveniently located just ninety minutes from Austin. A 1.20 acre lot on the Colorado River is included with the sale. (River lot is not contiguous to ranch, but only minutes away). The ranch borders 5,328 acre Colorado Bend State Park (with which it shares 1.7 miles of fence line) and large ranches. The park is a pristine wilderness that is protected for perpetuity. Recreational opportunities abound including great hunting, fishing, hiking or just enjoying the outdoors. Entrance to the state park and its access to the Colorado River is literally at the front gate of the ranch.
A comfortable and charming log cabin perched on a hilltop affords fifty-mile views of the surrounding Colorado valley ranch lands. The view from the front porch is the state park. The view will not change; no houses, security or street lights, just the stars. Its modern kitchen, two bedrooms, full bath and old-fashioned sleeping porch comfortably accommodates you and your guests in a quiet, secluded setting. Two deep wells with large storage tanks provide water for the cabin, wildlife and several earthen stock tanks. A small barn is located near the cabin for storing ATV’s and equipment.
The ranch has a great balance of hills, draws, improved pasture and native grasses. Elevations range from 1,277’ to 1,432’. Its proximity to the Colorado River accounts for the ranch’s deep and fertile soils. Live oak and mesquite are the dominant tree species. Substantial numbers of cedars have been taken off, but some remain.
Trophy whitetail deer, wild turkey and dove are abundant on the ranch. (Small numbers of feral hogs have also been harvested). The current owners have been using sound herd management practices for the past forty years. This stretch of the Colorado is known for its spring white bass run. Historic Lemon’s Camp and the state park provide ready access to Texas fishing at its best.
With beef prices at an all time high, cattle production can also bring a significant income component to the ranch. With its reliable water, plentiful forage and sound fencing, the ranch can comfortably carry forty cow- calf pairs in non-drought years.
The ranch is easily accessed by county and state maintained roads just three miles off of the black top. This is a must- see property for the hunter, gentleman rancher or someone who simply enjoys the solitude and the beauty of the Texas Hill Country. Offered at $2,650/acre.
