Ponderosa Ranchette, Views, Hunting, Home, Barn, Well
RECENTLY REDUCED 2 hours to Austin, 2.5 San Antonio, Located in southern San Saba County. Peace, quiet, views and remarkable sunsets all come as part of the package included with this property. An old rock building, which was formerly an old schoolhouse, was converted into a lovely country home and now, affectionally referred to, as the "Ponderosa." Hilltop views that are some of the best in the hill country and go on for 20+ miles. Ample wildlife including deer, turkey, hogs, racoons, coyote, etc. About dark on most evenings, you can enjoy the lovely chorus of coyotes singing praises and greetings. The workshop is 2000 sq ft on cement pad with water and electric. Additionally, the shop has a 15 x 50 covered area for equipment parking and extra storage of anything you want to keep out of the Texas sun and rain. That leaves plenty of room inside the shop to tinker with toys or run your own at home business. By the proud and tal windmill is an above ground cement storage tank that was used to collect and hold water produced by the windmill. Since this is no longer in use, this would make an interesting conversion to an above ground pool with a walk around deck. High speed fiberoptic internet is available for your convenience. Good water well drilled in 2010 with all the information available and producing 15 gpm flow. The home is fully functional and move in ready but could use some remodeling before moving in. Deer stand and feeder convey. Some of the county road front is asphalt paved. Pond is currently dry due to drought situation. Lots of interesting rock formations that will peak the interest of geode hunters and arrowhead hunters. Unparalleled stargazing with no light pollution and unrestricted views. The property currently has exemptions on the taxes that are for agriculture use, homestead and over 65. The ag use is maintained by a neighbor that runs cows on 38 of the total 40 acres. This could be continued or terminated. The application of the other tax exemptions depend on the situation of the next owners and therefore different taxes will apply to new owners. The home is about 15 miles from San Saba City limits and a little over half the distance is paved but the gravel road is in great shape and makes for easy driving. Llano is about 20 miles to the South.
