The metal building is for commercial use.  It has 840 square feet, and 12 foot exterior walls. The other 2 structures are small storage buildings.

Some inventory and equipment may be included in the transaction.

Home and guest house on 40 Acres

Posted on: October 14th, 2019 by Phyllis Barbour

Fabulous Austin Stone home located just outside of Brady, Texas.  This home, along with a one bedroom guest house, has 40 acres, a pond, and a horse barn.  This is not your average country home, but rather a large (over 2500 sq. ft.) beautifully landscaped home with extraordinary views.

This home was built in 2006.  It is a 4BR, 2.5BA home with a two car (oversized) garage.  It has extra storage space in the garage as well as floored attic space.  A beautiful fireplace in the great room draws your attention which then leads you to the awesome view visible through the double pane windows on either side of the fireplace.  There is a small breakfast nook off the kitchen as well as a formal dining room.    The kitchen is very nicely designed with all the necessities and then some.  Appliances will convey.

The bedrooms are split design with two on each side of the house.  Currently, one bedroom is being used as an office.  The master bedroom is roomy enough for exercise equipment, office space, or a lounge chair if you would prefer.  The master bath has a separate bath, shower, double vanity and private commode area.  The remaining bedrooms have a jack and jill bath between them.  Each room has a large closet and ceiling fans.

In 2013, a one bedroom, one bath guest home was built on the property.  It has a magnificent great room with fireplace.  It does not have a “formal” kitchen, but there is a large bar area with sink.  It has an ice machine, a wine cooler, a dishwasher and microwave.  The bedroom has a huge walk-in closet while the bath has a walk in shower.  There is also a two car garage with this home.  Any guest would enjoy these private accommodations.  Large outdoor patio’s behind the main house as well as by the guest house leave plenty of space for entertaining.

A 30 x 40 barn has three stalls and a tack room.  There is one stock tank on the property.  The terrain is mostly cleared with scattered Oaks and Mesquite.  The entire home is surrounded by pipe and net wire fencing.

We have a very nice, almost 1700 sq. ft., three bedroom, two bath home on acreage.  It is an American Star double wide that has been bricked on three sides.  It has a composition roof that is approximately five years old.  The inside and outside unit of the central heat and air were replaced about two years ago.  A very nice covered patio is attached to the back of the home as well as a “man cave” and several outside buildings.

The master has a two sink vanity, private commode area with shower and a walk-in closet. All bedrooms are carpeted while there is tile in the kitchen and baths and plank flooring throughout the rest of the downstairs.
Upstairs we have a large open space to do with as you will. Behind swinging doors, you have a small wet bar area as well as a refrigerator. Currently, there is a dining table, extra beds, and a very comfortable seating area. This is also where you have easy access to the attic.
This home has an insurance friendly metal roof. It has CH/CA, all electric except for the gas fireplace in the den. There are two AC units and two water heaters. There is also a two car attached garage. The laundry room is located right at the entry way from the garage to the main part of the house. Very convenient, could serve as a little “mud room”.

You hardly need to take a vacation to anywhere else. Just invite the family to your place! Swimming pool, game room, fireplace, outside patio, plenty of everything to enjoy!

125 PR 622 Voca, Tx

Posted on: July 3rd, 2019 by Mike Barbour

Absolutely gorgeous brick home!  This beauty is sitting at the end of a long tree studded drive, amidst wonderful shade trees.  The area both in front and back is beautifully landscaped with bushes, trees and flowering plants.  The garage holds two vehicles with extra storage area.  The area in front has a circular drive so guests have a place to park, while the back has a pergola covered patio area and outdoor kitchen.  A custom, matching rock fire pit is there as well so you can stay outside and enjoy the solitude or the friends who have come to visit on a starry Texas night.  It’s all about the ambience and this home has plenty!

Just under 4,000 sq. ft., this home, built in 1998, has 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths.  It has a composition roof and double pane windows.  There are three CH/CA units and two traditional water heaters.  The entire home is electric.  There is a formal dining room with built in shelving and cabinetry as well as a casual dining area that looks out onto the patio.  The kitchen is large and modern with granite topped island and counters.  There is a good sized walk in pantry.  A tankless water heater was installed under the kitchen sink so hot water is immediate.  The appliances are stainless steel and will convey with the home.  At the end of the island is a little built in wine rack with clear cover.  Some of the cabinets have glass doors to show off your “special” items.  Plenty of room for more than one cook in this kitchen and the usable counter space is amazing!

There is no carpet anywhere in this home.  The living room and master bedroom have ceramic tile, the kitchen and hallways are Saltillo tile while the bedrooms are wood grain plank flooring.  What that amounts to is a very child and pet friendly home.  The living room has built in book shelves.  It also has a pass through wood burning fireplace that can provide heat and beauty whether you’re in the living room or kitchen.

The master bedroom and bath in this home are truly a sight to behold.  The sheer size of each is astonishing.  One again, the focal point of the master suite would be the pass through fireplace.  It helps keep you toasty in bed or helps you to relax while in the huge Jacuzzi tub that is a part of the master bath.  There is also a large glass enclosed shower, private commode, his and her vanity areas and a gigantic walk in closet.

There are four other bedrooms in this home with easy access to bathrooms due to the Jack and Jill arrangement.  The laundry room is off the kitchen and is, in itself, another surprise.  It has built in cabinets and a sink on the laundry side of the room and has an office area with built in desk and cabinets on the other side.  There isn’t much you would want that this home doesn’t provide.

At the back of the home is an impressive patio, complete with outdoor kitchen and firepit.  It is accessed either from the master bedroom or the casual dining area.  It has a covered pergola, room to have a party, and a sweet view of the countryside.  Sit outside with your morning coffee, or your evening refreshment.  What a way to relax!

Lest we forget, we have 68 Acres to talk about.  The acreage is grassy field in some areas, while mesquite and other natural brush in other areas provide forage for the deer.  There are two seasonal ponds on this property, three wells, outbuildings and good fencing.  A four stall horse barn with office/apt. and ½ bath sit a little bit apart from the main home.   Come and see for yourself. Call for an appointment!

334 Acres in McCulloch County

Posted on: May 7th, 2019 by Mike Barbour

This wonderful property has much to offer. It has nearly a mile of river frontage on the
Colorado River, including water rights, in a scenic horseshoe bend of the river. It has
an appealing Austin stone home on a 100 foot high bluff overlooking spectacular
scenery in the bend of the river. There is a large horse barn, another large barn, 2 great
sets of pens, a big shop and more improvements. You have the option of irrigating
fields with the system in place. And there is pretty surface water, with a pond near the
house and a small lake as well. You really need to see it, there’s a lot to appreciate.
The house has porches on all 4 sides, to enjoy the scenery, the peacefulness, the
breezes. It has 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. Each bedroom has its own private bath.
The kitchen has a griddle stove, a regular stove, and granite countertops. The adjacent area has a large rock woodburning fireplace with shelving and custom cabinets on each
side. The whole ranch is very well improved. It has lots of water resources, and many
improvements to make it more enjoyable to use.
Water. In addition to all the river frontage, there are 2 water wells. One is near the
house and supplies residential needs. The other well is a very large volume well, large
enough for irrigation if you so desire. And, a huge asset is 174 acre-feet of water
rights from the Colorado River !
There are 2 nice stock ponds as well. One is close enough to the house to walk to for a
serene time with early morning coffee. The other we actually call a small lake,
approximately 2 acres in an attractive location. It’s big enough for kayaking or
canoeing. Or fishing. And the ranch has a concrete reservoir for water storage as well.
These are frequently used for ranch swimming pools. Community water or “city water” is
also available not far away.
Recreation and other uses. This one ranch has more potential activities available
than just about any other ranch we’ve seen. Some of those would include boating or
kayaking, several types of fishing, several types of hunting, 4 wheeling, horseback
riding and training, artifact hunting, and more.
Improvements : House.
The house has 2,520 square feet indoors. Including the porches, it has 4,980 square
feet under roof according to MCAD. This custom home was built in 2010, and appears to be in very good condition. Ceilings are elevated throughout the house. With the rock
exterior and metal roof, it has a nearly maintenance free exterior.

The kitchen is large and open, with granite counters and a granite island. It has a
regular stove and a built-in griddle for those Saturday mornings. The flooring is tile.
The adjacent den and kitchen both have a wall of windows, looking out over the river.
The view includes the river, the bluff above it, and the other side of this ranch around
the horseshoe bend.

Barns.  The horse barn is a 100 ft. x 44 horse barn. It is fairly new, and is a metal
structure with 4 horse stalls, an office, a kitchen, a half bath, and 2 wash racks. The other large barn is also a fairly new metal structure. It is a 100 x 48 building, half of
it is a shop on concrete and the other half is a shed.
Pens. Two sets of pens serve the ranch, one is a small set on the west side. The east
side pens are huge, more than big enough for sorting horseback. Included are pens
with loafing sheds.
Outbuildings. Other improvements include the “Texas House”, which is a very old
frame house on a loose rock foundation, built probably around 1890. Another structure
is a shop/garage near the main house.

Please contact us for a showing of this serene, peaceful and secluded ranch, which has
end of the road privacy.
