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.
