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).
