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!!!
