Location: 248 Blau Lane, one mile east of Hext, Texas, with 2,680 ft. frontage on State Highway 29 and 4,051 ft. frontage on Blau Lane, a county road. The ranch is centrally located, approximately 17 miles east of Menard, Texas, 19 miles northwest of Mason, Texas, and 22.51 miles southwest of Brady, Texas.
Land/Water: Attractive, rolling pastureland with improved grasses, this nicely shaped rectangular ranch affords some nice views of the surrounding hill country with many large, mature live oak and post oak trees scattered over the property and little to no cactus, some mesquite. Divided into three pastures of approximately 85, 81, and 79 acres, the property perimeter is high fenced except on the south but a fence will be completed soon. The ranch is well watered with two wells equipped with submersible pumps, and three dirt tanks. A third well, reported to be 1050 deep is unequipped and has not been used. Five Mile Creek and Holland Draw converge on the ranch and along these draws are eight spreader dams and the three dirt tanks.
Improvements: At the entrance to property in a small trap area is a 1200 sq. ft. stone home (circa 1924) with two bedrooms and one bath. The home is needs updating but sits under a huge canopy of live oaks, post oaks and pecan trees. It has great potential and could be a nice guest cottage. Also, in the trap are two metal barns and a good set of pipe pens for working livestock. There are several outstanding home sites to pick from to build your dream home.
Wildlife: White tail deer, turkey, dove and quail and other wildlife native to the area.
Minerals/Taxes: Seller to convey 50% or all owned mineral interest. Property is currently under Ag Exempt tax status.
Financial/Title: Listing price is $3750/acre or $927,735.00 cash or conventional financing. There are no ROW easements other than utility electrical access. Seller will provide basic title insurance, and existing survey.
Summary: Very few ranches of this caliber are on the market that combine attractive, productive acreage, basic ready to go improvements, good water, location and access that this ranch does. Give us a call to view this excellent property today!
