BALANCE RANCH - 131 acres in a tranquil country setting off the beaten path yet close to Austin (40 min) and San Antonio (65 min). The 1950 ranch home (1,800 sqft) was re-modeled in 2007 retaining original items such as hardwood floors, glass door knobs, and fireplace while adding modern features such as tankless water heater and Silestone counter-tops. The guest house(1,800 sqft), built in 2005, is handicap accessible with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, a galley kitchen, concrete floors and wide views of the property. The land is fenced and cross-fenced; two of the three stock tanks are stocked with copper nose blue gill and largemouth bass. A working windmill pumps water to pastures and serves as back-up for the rural water system for the two homes. Two hay-pastures are planted in KN-47 Bermuda with winter rye, another pasture is primarily for dove/teal/duck; the rear is wooded with groomed trails. The shop building is divided into a woodshop and a metal shop. The barn is near the 100x150 walled arena. Gated entry is solar powered, designed to allow 53 ft trailer easy entry. This hidden Texas treasure is ready to handle horses or cattle, to offer hunting and fishing, to entertain family and friends, or allow you a quiet get-away. The name says it all: Balance Ranch.
Great Central Texas location, 24 miles to Bastrop, 34 miles to ABIA, 32 miles to San Marcos and 75 miles to San Antonio.
