The property is in the Marble Falls School District. It has rich sandy soil, numerous pecan trees and a few live oaks. The entire property was once a pecan orchard, however the trees have not been cared for in years. With some care several of the trees should do well. There are two existing water wells that were previously used to water the orchard. Two connected electric meters, one near each water well. Water well and electric on each of the 10 acre tracts. Perimeter of property is fenced to run cattle. Minimal set of livestock pens. One usable metal barn on concrete slab. Property is subject to a Property Owner’s Association and restricted to preserve the property values. Will consider selling one 10 acre tract.

Home on just under 5 acres

Posted on: March 21st, 2023 by Mike Barbour

Always dreaming about a home in the country?  We have an ideal home, perfect for family.  There is plenty of room in the main house which has four bedrooms, and two bathrooms.  If that isn’t enough, it has a separate guest home with three bedrooms and two baths.

It’s tucked away in the trees, on a private road, off a Farm to Market Road.  The word “homesteading” totally comes to mind.  Home office, check. Home fitness center, check. Small barn, check. Storage buildings, check.  Fully functioning chicken coop, check.

This home has been remodeled over the last several years.  It is functionally sound, and esthetically awesome.  Just shy of 5 acres, the home is listed at $525,000.

The living room was remodeled in 2017.  It has a lovely wood burning rock fireplace and a small entry alcove.   The upstairs addition was added about 2013. Easy to climb stairs lead to the bonus room.

The square footage of the main home is 2988.  There are 4 bedrooms and 2 baths with a large upstairs addition, currently open.  Plenty of room to partition more bedrooms if you choose, or leave it open as a large game room for teenagers, play room for little ones, or media room for the entire family.

The bedrooms are split design.  The master and one other bedroom are on one side of the home.  The Master has carpeting, ceiling fan and walk-in closet.  The master bath has just been remodeled.  The kitchen was also remodeled in 2023.  Awesome cabinetry, granite countertops, and a restaurant style kitchen sink fixture.

The guest house has also been remodeled and has 3BR and 2BA.  It has granite countertops and plank flooring and all the amenities of a full blown second home.  It would make an awesome home for a parent who still wishes to be semi-independent or an opportunity for extra income from a renter.

The property has City of Brady water.    The entire home is rural electric, currently Pulse/Oncore except for the kitchen range which uses gas.  The main home has a metal roof, smart board siding, and two water heaters.

There is a 65’ x 25’ shop with 220 outlets.  A small barn, and storage building also convey with property.  There are other small buildings on property as well.  Pecan trees, Live Oak trees, circular drive, two car carport, property fenced as well as the backyard being fenced to help contain those youngsters or pets.

Please call to come out and take a look.  Home is occupied, so a little notice would be very appreciated!
