Double B Ranch
Bell County, TX
The magnificent Double B Ranch is an outstanding 1,000+ high fenced acres. There are not many ranches of this caliber and size that is less than one hour from Austin. Conveniently located on FM 2843, the ranch is 5 minutes west of I-35 at renowned Salado, Texas. It is around 45 minutes from north Austin, 2 hours from Dallas, and 30 minutes to Georgetown or Waco.
Salado is a quaint town that has been compared to Wimberley or a smaller version of Fredericksburg. There are world class artists, wineries, breweries, and a variety of shops. You can stay at the famous Stagecoach Inn or the neat bed and breakfasts.
The Double B is a drop dead gorgeous Hill Country ranch and is truly one of a kind. There have only been four owners since the Spanish Land Grant, in the 1800s. Approximately 1,000+ acres is high fenced. The gently rolling land has 120 feet of elevation change and offers big views from several locations. There is great tree cover that include live oak, post oak, elm, pecan, sycamore, and cedar. Much of the cedar has been cleared leaving a park of large oaks. Much of the ranch is not very rocky and offers good soils for food plots, sunflower fields, or improved grasses.
The property is not lacking for water. Over one mile of Mustang Creek meanders through the ranch. Several springs seep into the creek and two dams impound great water for fishing. In addition to the creek there are four more spring fed ponds that provide water for game, livestock, and are stocked with fish. Willingham Springs flows into one of the ponds. The stone spring box is decades old and the spring has constantly provided water through a number of dry times and droughts. Subsurface water is abundant as well. There are five wells on the ranch and all are 60 to 100+ GPM.
There is a variety of game that includes gemsbock, axis, blackbuck, addax, fallow, and oryx. The whitetail have genetically superior genetics and were from breeding bucks and doe that include Kid Rock, Southern Comfort, Express, Top Gun, Maxbo, Federal Express, Nitro Express, Midnight Express, Southern Rock, Gladiator XL, Frac Daddy, Pump Jack, Freightliner, and Federal Reserve. Additional hunting includes turkey, dove, and ducks.
The main home/lodge is a beautiful six year old 6,482 sq. ft. (Bell CAD) stone exterior home, featuring 6 bedrooms, 6 full baths, and 2 half baths. There are granite counters throughout, 3 fireplaces, a bar area with commercial ice maker, an outdoor kitchen with granite counters, a huge covered porch, and a cool pool and spa. The chefs kitchen has a double oven, Subzero refrigerator, Wolf stovetop, and a large walk-in pantry.
Other improvements include a 25x72 covered parking area and a 25x24 air conditioned exercise room, a Bus/RV barn, and an older guest/foreman's home. There is a 1,678 sq. ft. (Bell CAD) barndominium. The 2 bedroom, 1 bath barndo was built in 2006 and has a 3 bay garage.
The furniture, furnishings, and equipment are negotiable.
Sometimes you come across a place that is very special and the Double B is one of those places that doesn't come around very often.
