At 558 Acres, this very private live water ranch is a stellar recreational paradise. Located towards the southeast of Bastrop County, it has great access to Historic Bastrop and Smithville, and is 50 minutes from Downtown Austin via Hwy 71, and less than 2 hours from Houston.
This is a beautifully wooded ranch. Towering pine trees are on much of the terrain, along with enormous mature oaks and other hardwood trees. There are at least 2 live spring-fed ponds on the property, along with a number of creeks. From the main entrance, to the south of FM 2571, you head south and approach one of the ponds near the east of the ranch. Adjacent facing the pond is a 2BR/2BATH traditional ranch home that has been completely updated with luxury touches throughout for a high-end finish, while maintaining a tasteful, subtle vibe appropriate for the property. There is also a great screened porch in the front, with a fireplace providing warmth for the porch or the interior. The open floor plan is flanked on both sides with bedrooms and updated baths with walk-in showers. Separate, but adjacent, is a guest home that is also 2BR/2BATH, and has a large deck area perfect for entertaining.
Further down the road are 2 newly built, large steel storage buildings, with one 4,500 sq ft structure just being completed as a bunk house/game room. The second building is around 90 days from being finished as a custom 3/2 at 4,000 sq ft residence, with a high-end finish. There is incredible irrigation surrounding the whole residential area, giving it a great manicured, park-like feel, and the owner is currently in process of installing a new pond and other water features. Electricity has been run underground throughout the area too, and there are great opportunities to build additional custom homes as well.
Much of this property is completely untouched, with a wealth of wildlife. This is a hunter’s paradise, and there is much to explore. One water feature in the ranch has formed an amazing, beautiful canyon feature. The possibilities for a recreational ranch are endless. Looking at an aerial of Bastrop County, you can see this is one of the last uncultivated parts of the entire county. This is a great opportunity to own your own getaway into the beauty of Texas nature.
