Property Description

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.
