71 Acres, San Saba County


71 Acres, San Saba County

Posted on: April 5th, 2024 by Mike Barbour

A beautiful oak and elm wooded property can now be yours.  It has been in the same family for decades and has just come on the market.  The property is in a secluded part of San Saba County, one of the prettiest counties in Texas.  With no neighbors close by, this can be an outstanding getaway place.

Post oak trees and 2 kinds of elms are the predominant trees on this place.  There are a few mesquite as well, but very limited cactus and little or no cedar. Other native species are present that make this excellent habitat for deer and other wildlife.

A  well from prior years had an electric pump in it, but it has not been in use in recent years. A power line is on the property as well, along with an old farmhouse and an old barn, which are not in good condition.

There are 2 small stock ponds which hold water seasonally.  The entire property is fenced, and has paved frontage.

Welcome to the heart of country comfort in our outstanding ranch home built in 2016.  This isn’t your typical city living – it’s a cozy retreat where simplicity meets modern!  We have three separate buildings in which you are able to entertain family and/or guests.  The main building is a 3800 sq. ft. home that does not disappoint.  The above square footage does not include the wide wrap around porch on the South and West side of the home.  The homes are located on 141 attractive acres, just outside of Brady, Texas.

Step inside, and you’ll find a fully equipped kitchen that’s ready for some serious cooking or baking.    A few of the kitchen amenities include a convection oven, built in microwave and gas range with its own oven.  Plentiful Marble counter top space, plus a convenient island is available for you to use.  It’s not about fancy gadgets; (although this kitchen is first class) it’s about good food and good times.Whip up your favorite meals, gather around the table, and savor the flavors of home.   There is a large great room  tastefully designed with several seating areas.  The middle beam height is 21’2″ with a 4 x 12 pitch.   There are two bedrooms and two baths in this home as well as a 10 ft. loft which could also serve as a bedroom.  The master bedroom is massive, with it’s own dressing area, full walk in closets, walk in shower, and private commode.

Solar panels are installed that cut your utility bill in half, a 6 ton Lennox  A/C unit,  and a tankless water heater provide instant hot water.

There is a 20K gallon salt water pool with waterfall and easy access steps.  The pool is located between the three buildings so it is easily accessed, and has a beautiful rock patio area for the pool chairs.

An 1,840 sq. ft. building that at one time was the main residence, is constructed with the open concept design, with one full bath, and a former outside porch which has now been enclosed.

The “Man Cave” is a 1,440 sq. ft. building with one bedroom, full bath, and walk-in closet.  It also has an attached shop/garage.  There are other outbuildings on the “home property” including a deer processing room and a shop.

Of the 141 total acres,  117 Acres are behind game fencing.  The deer in this enclosure all have improved genetics, from several sources.  Multiple bucks have been harvested scoring well over 220 B & C. The largest scored 286, 2 others in the 250 range.  Similar genetics are still on the place.  The same group of hunters has been hunting the place for years, and they have judiciously selected the ones to be harvested each year in order to maintain the herd quality.

Within the high fenced area, there is a 3/1 “lodge” available for hunters.  There are 4 big protein feeders that will convey with the property as well as 1 corn feeder.  The property is serviced by Richland Springs water.  A small municipal airport borders one fenceline.

This Custom home and deer ranch isn’t about extravagance; it’s about embracing the laid-back charm of country living. So, whether you’re unwinding after a day of work or gearing up for a day of adventures, this is the kind of space that feels like home – cozy, practical, and authentically country. Welcome to your retreat in the heart of Texas!

We have a very nice, roomy four bedroom brick home on Brady Creek.  It has so much to offer that it’s a little difficult to know where to start.  I would be amiss if I didn’t mention the almost six acres of property even though you are still in the city with many of the city amenities.  You are able to drive all the way to the creek to enjoy an evening with nature.

This home has 3,404 sq. ft. with vaulted ceilings, a formal living room, den, formal dining, kitchen, four bedrooms along with an office and 3 3/4 baths.  It also has a large laundry room, attached two car garage as well as a detached two car garage and an outbuilding.

The living room and bedrooms are carpeted with tile in the den, kitchen, and laundry room.  A two sided fireplace services the living room and formal dining room.  Another fireplace services the den.  The kitchen was remodeled around 2012 and has granite countertops, built in oven, microwave, ice maker and dishwasher.  The range has a large cooktop, and is surrounded by lots of counters for plenty of work space.  The refrigerator will convey as well.  The bedrooms have walk-in closets, the master has a separate seating and dressing area along with a jacuzzi bathtub.

The composition roof was replaced in 2023.  There are two A/C units and two water heaters as well as a sprinkler system both in the front yard and in the back yard.  The city provides electricity, water and trash collection.  There is a septic system that was just serviced in Dec. 2023.

This home is located in an especially nice neighborhood, with well established trees and large yards.  The wildlife is plentiful because of the creek.  It’s like having a little bit of country right in town.  The homes in this area do not hit the market often, and you would do well to make an appointment to come and take a look.

On a beautiful large lot with dozens of mature oak trees is a classic home in Brady, Texas.  It is a 3 bedroom 2 bath, with a living room, dining room and den.  The kitchen is large and roomy.  The living room has a brick fireplace.  At the back of the house is an inviting sun room.

The lot is 1.21 acres, which is at least 4 or 5 times as large as an average city lot.  Neighboring properties have large lots or acreage; the properties across the street have frontage on Brady Creek.

Next to the house is a detached 2 car garage with a carport and a long drive for plenty of parking.  The house itself is like a blank slate, it needs work and updating.  It could be turned into a lovely home, on a beautiful lot, in a peaceful quiet community.  Come out and check it out for yourself.

Awesome brick home on an acre of land.  This home was built about 1977 and has been maintained throughout the entirety of that time.  It has CH/CA, which is always handy during these Texas summers! Can I get an Amen!  This is a three bedroom, two full bath home.  As you enter the house, there is a small entry way that allows you to turn to the right to enter the living room, or continue straight on to a small den area which is adjacent to the kitchen.  It serves as a great gathering place for the after school crowd.  There is even a small built in bar (desk) for the kids to do their homework at while mom is getting supper started.  (A little supervision never hurts when it comes to homework).  The kitchen is fully furnished with plenty of cabinetry, lots of countertop space, and the appliances will convey.  That includes an electric stove top with microwave, refrigerator and dishwasher.  On the other side of the kitchen is plenty of room for a large dining table.

This home has three bedrooms and two full baths, one of which is in the master bedroom.  All bedrooms are carpeted, while kitchen and bathrooms are luxury linoleum.  The laundry room in this home is located off the kitchen and also gives access to the garage making it a great “mud room” for those times when it’s necessary to kick off those shoes!  Whirlpool washer, dryer, and upright freezer will convey with full price.  This laundry room also gives access to an enclosed sleeping porch, office, play room, or general “bonus room”.

There is a stand alone two car garage with automatic openers as well as key pad access.    An attached shop, as well as a storage room complete the garage.  A smaller storage room is in the backyard as well.   A single car garage is attached to the home.

Call to make an appointment!  We would love to show it to you.

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.

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.

Location.    Located on the outskirts of the little town of Rochelle, (which has a school district ), this is 11 miles east of Brady, “The Heart of Texas”. It has paved frontage, and it’s just over 2 hours to Austin and about 2.5 hours to Ft. Worth.

Improvements.     The residence which is currently occupied is a mobile home in good condition.  It’s a 3/2 with a nice deck overlooking the countryside.  Nearby is a 12 by 10 shop/storage building.  And a bonus is the hunting cabin at the back of the property.

Water.         City water is supplied to the residence, and a pretty stock pond surrounded by oak trees is near the hunting cabin.
