The SLD Ranch-2556 Acres San Saba, TX
LOCATION: Well located, SLD Ranch is minutes from San Saba, Texas, also known as the Pecan Capital of the World, where you can find shops, restaurants, wineries, and basic medical care. Only ninety minutes from Austin, two and a half hours from Ft. Worth, and four hours from Houston.
DESCRIPTION: This first-class hunting ranch is a rare opportunity, divided into four almost equal sections that are watered via 18 ponds and county water. Rook Creek, a seasonal creek, traverses the eastern portion of the ranch and drainage from the multiple plateaus fill the ponds. The terrain is wildly diverse with elevations ranging from 1250 to 1480 feet above sea level, dropping down to rock bottomed Rook Creek and other Post and Live Oak lined draws. Strong native grasses throughout the mesquite pastures are beneficial to wildlife and livestock and from the plateaus spectacular panoramic views overlooking the county and beyond can be enjoyed.
IMPROVEMENTS: A uniquely designed 5,475-square-foot lodge overlooks expansive panoramic views of San Saba County. Planned for entertaining both small and large groups, the beautifully crafted and custom-built lodge was constructed in 2014 and has been meticulously maintained. Everything from the cabinets to fixtures are custom from the three bedrooms; including the downstairs master, three full baths, and two half-baths. The family room, living room, large kitchen are all exceptionally crafted. The outdoor living space was carefully thought out, designed for large groups with an incredible patio area and pool that makes entertaining and peaceful outside dining something to look forward to. Additional structures include an oversized 2 car detached carport and smoke house with BBQ pits sure to impress the most discerning BBQ enthusiast.
Ancillary improvements on the ranch include 4,000 square foot pole barn, 3,000 square foot insulated shop on slab, walk in deer cooler and covered cleaning area. There is also a good set of pipe pens, built in 2016, for working livestock. All rock work, from the grand entrance, pool deck, porches and exterior of the home, are built with native stone harvested from the ranch.
WILDLIFE: The SLD Ranch is home to trophy Whitetail Deer, Turkey, Feral Hogs and several species of waterfowl. Multiple stocked ponds offer great fishing for the outdoor angler. The ranch has been managed for over 20 years under the TPWD Level III MLD program, producing multiple bucks scoring in the 150 & 160 B&C.
WATER: Rook creek traverses the Eastern portion of the ranch. Cattle and wildlife are watered by the 18 ponds that are strategically located on the ranch. Domestic water is provided via community water taps.
FENCING: Fencing is in good to excellent condition throughout the ranch. The ranch is mostly high fenced, with the southern boundary line as the only low fence on ranch.
FINANCIAL/TITLE: Seller will furnish current survey and basic title title insurance.
COMMENTS: Nestled in the Heart of Texas Hill County, SLD Ranch is one of the most scenic and diverse ranches to be offered for sale. Incredible hunting, a fabulous lodge for entertaining and overall great livestock ranch, SLD offers commanding views from numerous plateaus across the ranch. With its central location, SLD would be an excellent corporate retreat, or a wonderful forever home for the outdoor recreationalist/rancher.
