This property is very private and secluded and 40 minutes to downtown Austin and 1 hr and 30 min. to Houston. You access it off of of Knobbs Rd.(CR) via a 45 ft. deeded easement(road) back to the house 1 mile back on a dirt/gravel road. It is just 5 miles N. of Hwy. 290. The improvements are not really worth much(old house and storage shed, etc..). The improvements are worth around $150K or so. There are towering pines all over it(100-200 ft. tall) and 10-15 ft. wide at the trunks. There are groves and groves of these trees all over the place. There are 2 tanks, and one more they are in the process of making into a 5 acre lake at the expense of the seller. They have Aqua WSC water to the house, which is a plus, and have all utlities set up at the house. This ranch has the 3 knobbs that are just NE of the land maybe 200 yds. which are the highest peaks in the county and have a lot of history to them with the local area. These are some of the biggest pine trees I have seen in the county. It is covered in wildlife, is in ag. exempt, has some great roll to it also which is very unique for the area and county. This seller is moving to the Virgin Islands within thrity days, and needs to sell quickly. Has large neighbors, the seller has done a lot of improving to the land(cleared roads, aqua wsc hookup at house, deer feeders, slab driveway around the house, nice new fencing and gates, hottub at the house, huge workshop/garage/etc.). Would make a great natures conservancy type place or a great end user weekend retreat place for R&R. Seller wants cash or with large down payment he will carry the paper. Exchanges welcome as well. Unbelievable place, and trees/privacy/location to Austin are to die for for this area. Improvements are modest. This is the most quiet and serene place I have ever seen in Bastrop County. The seller will divide 80 acres with the house for half a million(SE corner of the property or southern portion of the land).

134 acres in Bastrop County, Texas

Posted on: January 19th, 2019 by Hunt H. Hellums

This is a top notch quality recreational ranch in the heart of Central Texas area within 10 miles of the historic town of Smithville, TX. There is an older ranch house on it with a brand new metal roof. All over the ranch there are monstrous pin oaks and some very large pine trees in the back in what owners call the "Forest" area with the creek. Pin Oak Creek runs the length of the property in the back of the ranch with dense pine tree cover all around it. There are other types of trees like cedar and oak also all it but most of the the large pin oaks are in the front and middle of the place. The front part of the ranch is more open than the back and the topography is mostly flat. It is mostly sandy soils and you can grow anything out in the area. There are two tanks on it and they both have water in them. It has paved CR and FM frontage on both sides of it(approx. 2000 feet on each) and has Aqua WSC water available on both sides of it. The owners believe they have 50 percent of the minerals and will convey them all which is highly unusual for this area due to the existing production that is on it now. They are part of a lease pool of 100's of acres with 3 adjoining landowners on one well just to the south of their property which provides some existing mailbox money to them right now for the new buyer to assume. There is potential here to cut the place into two tracts when you resell it due to all of the paved CR/FM frontage on two sides. The owners will divide the ranch and sell only 92-94 acres approximately as per a new survey on the east side of the creek with the house and will sell the rest in the "Forest" area in the back separately which is believed to be 40+/- acres as per a new survey also. The shape is a long and skinny rectangle. There are very large neighbors all around it which gives it good protection from future development. There is a current survey from 2002. This is a good area of the county as far as holding values due to the mineral production and the recreational demand for the land from Houston folks. The seller will accept cash and 1031 exchanges. It is within 1 hour of Austin off of Hwy. 71 due East of Austin. This is an older area of the county for mineral production but there are still some existing oil wells that are producing right now and a few gas wells as well. It sits in the Houston Toad area and it is in Ag. Exemption with very low taxes with the taxes per year around $2,000-$2,500 per year as per county records. This is must see place in the heart of Bastrop County with a lot of unique features that make it one of a kind. Come quick! It won't be around very long! Sellers are very very motivated to look at all offers and also would want a cash offer by the end of the year to make a quick sale. They also favor dividing it up into a 40 acre tract in the back on Nink Rd. to the middle of the creek with just the woods and a 92-94 acre tract with the house in front to the middle of the creek on Hwy. 2104 and the pricing adjustment would follow accordingly to the size and the land and house features and water features with each respective tract. Bring an offer quick on this deal now. This is a great buy for Smithville area and Bastrop County!!!

251 acres in Williamson County, Texas

Posted on: January 19th, 2019 by Hunt H. Hellums

This larger commuter ranch would be perfect for someone in Austin or Georgetown that wanted to live outside of town slightly in "rural" Texas but be close to the city amenities being only 40 minutes to downtown Austin and 20-30 minutes to Round Rock or Georgetown, TX. You can either buy just 200 acres of raw native pastureland with some improved grasses mixed in or you can buy it all at 251 acres with the house thrown in with it. It has a lot of paved Highway frontage on Hwy. 138(approx. 4000 ft. or so)as seen in option 1 for some investor/developer to take advantage of. As option two goes, you could get 200 acres without the house and any improvements with around 1500 ft. of frontage on Hwy. 138. The property is irregular in shape and has two stock ponds on it, 1/8 of the minerals go with it with the surface rights, a lot of it is in coastal to where you could bale hay off of it and have horses and cows on the land, and also you could rent the house for around $1000-$1500 a month as an investment being this close into town if you did option 1. Taxes run approx. $400 for the land and $2800 for the house. It is in Ag. Exempt. Williamson County is one of the fastest growing counties in the USA right now. The older ranch house is very nice/large and very livable for someone(valued at $119K with .89 acre lot with WCAD).It has been recently renovated by the current owners back in 2004. It has a large water line with CTSUD on Hwy. 138 on the south side of Hwy. 138(12 inch water line that could be bored across for a certain dollar amount) and could easily be utilized for development purposes. The overall property is odd in shape and Teagues Trail easement coming off of CR 223 from the back could easily be used for access to the back of the property since it conveys with the land. There is good fencing all the way around the ranch and also some good interior fencing too. This property is under contract as of 6/29/2012.

153.94 acres in Bastrop County, Texas

Posted on: January 19th, 2019 by Hunt H. Hellums

This is a tract that is right on the edge of the all of the growth of the City of Austin very close to Toll 130 and Hwy. 71. It is also very close to ABIA and the new F1 racetrack area too. It is a transitional piece of land that sits on the outside of the city limits of Austin that some investor would want to sit on and then develop it in 5-10 years. There is a 12 inch Aqua WSC line on FM 535(Pearce Lane)right in front of the tract and the property has approx. 7,000 feet of total paved CR frontage between the two paved roads(FM and CR).It is in Ag. Valuation which would be perfect for an investor who wants to hold it now and develop it later. The property has some incredible views off of the hilltops and also has a nice gentle roll to it which gives some incredible views off of the top of the property. There is power to the property with Bluebonnet Electric and there is no WW yet only septic. Propane is available in the area. There are some subdivisions and lots of housing development in the area with houses ranging in a price range of $80,000 to $120,000. All the mineral convey that the seller has which we think is 100 percent. It has an Austin Energy power line running down the very north end of it. It has a seasonal creek on it with some very large oaks around it and it has a lot of mesquite on it. There is no flood plain and the gas service to the ranch is just propane. It has a cell tower that the sellers would negotiate on in selling the property that would provide some potential income to the new owner. The sellers are not selling this with it upfront but it is a negotiating tool for them. It is a perfect rectangle shape for development. There are hardly any improvements of value on it with an old ranch house and a mobile home and some sheds/barns. There is a caretaker that lives on the ranch that would love to stay but will go at new buyer's discretion. The seller is selling for estate reasons and they al live out of state currently. The perimeter fences are all in good shape. There is a brand new survey completed 7/29/2014 paid for by the seller already.

The Watson Ranch

Posted on: January 19th, 2019 by Hunt H. Hellums

This property is in the direct path of growth for Williamson County and the Liberty Hill area. Very strong paved CR frontage with a total of a mile. The ranch has been in the same family for over 100 years and has never been for sale. There is approx. 3500 feet of Bear Creek frontage on the south side of the ranch. There is an older house that was originally built in the 40's that is 1500 feet approx. per WCAD and BCAD roles. The house has a mother in law plan. Outbuildings include a large implement shed, hay barns, a metal grain bin, livestock pends, 2 very good deep newer functional water wells that owner has good records on, a large stock pond. The farm has been used by Mr. Watson for over 60 years for running cattle, sheep, baling hay and harvesting grain. The minerals are believed to be intact with no leases known at this time. There is little to no cedar on this place and the views of the surrounding area are tremendous. The oaks are century old oaks and about 60 percent of it is wooded(South end of it) and the remainder is open(North end of it) in fields with improved grasses in them like Klein and Coastal. The creek normally runs when it rains and it has good standing water in it now and there is one really good tank on it now with one older one that could be reworked for sure. This ranch would cut up nicely with all of the paved CR frontage(over a mile) and is very close in to the immediate growth of Liberty Hill area. The development will surely hit here before long and when it does you will be sitting pretty in this location while you pay $750 a year in taxes and hold it while using it for agricultural purposes and also for recreation/hunting. There is already acreage ranchette development in the area with some 10-15 acre tracts that people are buying to build whatever they choose on it. I am sure this one could be the same in the next 2-5 years. This farm has been a very productive farm over the years and has some great fertile soils on it with high top field land and also low bottom field land too. Come look now. These owners want to sell the place. There is a 10 acre parcel that is contiguous with it that sits inside of it that is owned by the same family just different family members and they live out of state and they want to sell it for $100K extra on top of the asking price of the ranch. This ranch is under contract as of 9/10/2015 with all 212+/- acres in two separate 10 and 202 acre tracts under contract at the same time with the same buyer set to close on both of them on 10/19/2015.

The Freid Ranch

Posted on: January 19th, 2019 by Hunt H. Hellums

This property is a one kind place very close to Austin MSA with a custom ranch house that has a 360 degree view around it that is extremely panoramic. It is only 5 miles from the Toll 130 and very close to Lockhart and Lytton Springs, TX and in Bastrop County. All the water rights and minerals go with the sale. Seller is selling for estate reasons and is therefore motivated to sell it. This is home to the infamous Moe Freid, the Austin Custom Granite and Marble layer in Manchaca, TX. He passed away in August of last year but the business is still going strong. There is a very large two story custom home that is unbelievable and like nothing you have ever seen. It was built in 2001 with an extremely large septic system and Polonia WSC provides 3-4 meters to the main house area. There are two stock ponds on the ranch. The separate gun room/shop away from the house. There are pristine improved grasses and Polonia WSC is on County Line Rd.. There is cattle on the ranch and the land carries with it an agricultural valuation so low cost of hold on ad valorem taxes. There is many extras of the personal family furniture in the house that may go with it if the offer is good enough. This location this close to Austin with this kind of custom home is unheard of these days. Bring your buyers quick-priced well for 3-6 month sale. This is a very motivated seller due to estate reasons and the health of the owner. On the location map that is in the files section, it is number 12 as far as exact location. This ranch has approximately $5500 per month in 5 different buildings in the NW corner of the ranch with established tenants that have been in them for years now. This is highly unusual to see existing income related with raw land anywhere. We could verify income in these properties with further seller documentation. The sellers will divide it at buyer's request into 100/100 acres with or without the main house. Seller would separate out the 100 acres without the income operating properties(5) without the main house. Seller has additional acreage(100 acres) they may sell contiguous with it with operating income stream on it with the 5 other smaller structures that generate about $5500-$6000 a month in income. The executor of this estate is ready to sell this land and house package asap. Very motivated to look at an offer now. This ranch with very large custom home is in "pending" status as of 6/4/2018 and all of it us under contract.

This is a great small acreage tract in very close in proximity to the Austin MSA and Toll 130 and ABIA in a very high quality area with nice houses all around you. It would make a great rural commuter homestead for someone to build a nice custom home on. This is a very good area of the county with a lot of new growth and new developments popping up everywhere around it. It overlooks the Hyatt Lost Pines Hotel area and the Colorado River Basin with great views and a good topography for building your dream country home. In the works is a small regional commuter airport and a new bridge that will cross the river and open up to new growth everywhere. It is very close to the new Cedar Creek High School on Hwy. 71 and Pope Bend Rd. It is assuring to know that the Hyatt Resort and Golf Center will be your 1000 acre neighbor for a buffer. There is an 8 inch water line with Aqua WSC available so you don't have to do a well, and all city utilities at the site. You will have to do a septic. It is in Ag. Valuation with a cattle lease on it now which means low taxes($150 a year). The trees are large and the place has some good variation between wooded and open fields. It has paved road frontage on three sides and is only 15 minutes to Austin and 10 minutes to Bastrop. Minerals are not included in sale but are negotiable separately. Seller will still grant surface control to new buyer. Bastrop County has been getting promises of new growth for the last 3-5 years with talks of XS Steiner Ranch closeby and with this tract's vicinity to all of this, this is one you will not want to pass up. It has a stock pond on it, and you are very close to all kinds of recreational amentities such as the Colorado River and all the gold courses in the area. It would be recreational paradise so to speak! There is a small barn on it with a livestock water well that is 125 feet deep already there for your custom home ranchette close into town. The property has a perfect square shape to it, and the views off of the SW part of it are tremendous. No restrictions on the property currently. There are lots of orchards and organic farms in the area and tree farms. This area of the county has been known to always bring good value due to the area and the surrounding neighbors. Please bring your buyers asap. This one will not last long. Asking price is very close to the county appraised value. Not many small acreage ranchettes come available in this area and when they do they go fast.
