Brick Home – 2032 Calf Creek Road


Brick Home – 2032 Calf Creek Road

Posted on: July 8th, 2021 by Mike Barbour

On the Southwest side of town, we have a lovely brick home which has been well maintained.  The home has 1,044 sq. ft., which may seem small, but all space has been used creatively.  It sits on a slab base and has a composition roof.  There are three bedrooms with two baths.  The former carpeting has been replaced with vinyl plank flooring throughout the home. The paint scheme in all rooms is neutral.  No retouching needed, as the saying goes, “move in ready”.

The kitchen has plenty of cabinetry and a large counter area dividing the kitchen from the dining area.  An electric stove, dishwasher and refrigerator will convey.  There is a sliding glass door that overlooks a small patio in the backyard which is fully enclosed by a chain link fence.  In the living room, there is a white brick wood burning fireplace, ceiling fan and windows at the front of the home.  It even has a small “coat closet” at the front entry.  There is a single vehicle automatic garage door.  The garage also holds the utility room with washer and dryer hookups.  The fully compliant electric water heater was installed in 2017, and the CH/CA unit was replaced in 2015.

This is an extremely nice home that would be ideal for so many different scenarios, single person, small family, retirement couple.  Just bring your own ideas for decorating because everything else is taken care of!

Home & 253 Acres in Lohn Valley

Posted on: June 18th, 2021 by Mike Barbour

This is a very nice combination ranch with deer and bird hunting, and it is an exceptional property for cattle.  The well kept farm house is cozy and private, over a quarter mile from the road.  It has finished wood floors throughout and solid wood walls.  The ceilings are 10 ft.  There is a fairly new energy efficient CH/CA unit.  There are two bedrooms and one and one half baths.

The acreage is varied.  There are Live Oaks scattered around the ranch including quite a few in the yard.  There are some brushy areas for wildlife, and there are some quail on the place.  Approximately 200 acres are in trees and brush and 50 acres in dense grass pasture.  The property has a good strong water well that makes 8 to 10 gallons a minute.  There are new water lines and troughs and some new fencing.  The well has new motor, new pressure tank and new casing.

The property has not been hunted in over two years.  It is in a quiet area, near the dead end of a lightly traveled County Road.   It is within 3 miles of the farming village of Lohn, and within 15 miles of Brady which has a hospital and small town shopping conveniences.

Luckenbach “A” Ranch, 1,031 Acres +/- in Menard County 

Posted on: June 17th, 2021 by Mike Barbour

Summary.  This historic ranch is on the market for the first time in over 100 years, since 1909 !  It is a beautiful property, with clearwater springs and elevations overlooking a canyon full of trees. It has seclusion, history, paved access, water and power on the ranch, wildlife, great views – all the ingredients for you to customize a great ranch retreat !

History.      The Luckenbach Ranch has been in the same family since 1909. It was named after Fritz Luckenbach Sr. and wife Anna, who moved from Fredericksburg and settled in old “Menardville” in 1888, when it was still part of the Old West.

Fritz was a blacksmith.  He started a barbwire fence company when the ranchland in the area was open range.  He then started a windmill company, and eventually opened Luckenbach Ford Motor Company in Menard.

The ranch is now being offered, for the first time, by Fritz Luckenbach’s great grandson and namesake. 

Location.    In one of the prettier areas of the Texas Hill Country, it is within 2 miles of Menard and 35 miles west of Mason.  That puts it about 2.5 hours from Austin and 1 hour from San Angelo.

Terrain.      The terrain is very scenic, with 140 feet of elevation change. The ranch is mostly wooded, primarily live oak and some shin oak, along with mesquite and juniper trees, and a few mature pecan trees. There are limestone bluffs, and elevations with beautiful homesites that have appealing distance views.

Improvements.     The ranch will soon be fenced entirely, the east side fence will be new and the fence on the other sides is in fair to good condition.  Electric power is in place in 2 locations.

Water.  Multiple springs flow thousands of gallons of crystal clear water daily.  The springs are active year round, except in very dry periods. The Jackson Hole is fed by the springs and it attracts game animals, birds and varmints. The water hole became widely known after a soldier who was stationed at old Ft. McKavett in the 1800’s deserted and was caught there. In addition, there is an old water well and windmill that needs to be reworked.

Wildlife.      The Luckenbach is very good game habitat. Whitetail deer are abundant, and the largest deer harvested for the year in the County has come off the ranch several times in recent years. Turkeys, dove, some waterfowl, and occasionally hogs can be hunted. Foxes and other natural predators inhabit this place as well.

Minerals.    100% of the Executive Rights and 33% of the royalties are available with an acceptable offer.

Price.           $3100 per acre.

Comments.           We invite you to make an appointment and get a personal tour of this historic ranch. Your unique additions and improvements will continue the ranching legacy and make it a blessed place for your family and friends.

We have a two bedroom, one full bath home on a corner lot.  It has had some remodeling, and painting done in the last few years.  It also has had some nice little additions to make the home cozier.  A side porch was enclosed to make a nice office, sewing room, or “in a pinch” extra bedroom.  A front deck was also added with a covering to keep the elements at bay.  In the back, there is a covered walkway to the two car garage, with a natural stone patio area as well.

Inside, there is a nice living room with faux fireplace and electric logs.  A small dining room with built in corner cabinets is super cute.  The kitchen has an electric stove, microwave and portable dishwasher.  The kitchen countertops have been redone with “countertop” paint.
