Psalms 37:4 says, If you delight yourself in the Lord, He will give you the desires of your heart. What is the desire of your heart? This lovely property has been brought back to life and is the perfect set up for someone looking to put their own finishing touches on it. Most of the heavy lifting of a rehabilitation project has already taken place here. Now you can enjoy employing your talents and vision to make this into your own heart's desire. 

The lot is just under half an acre at .493 and has 9 large, mature pecan trees providing a shade canopy on over half the property. The home was built around 1920 and is centrally located in the town of San Saba, Tx (Pecan Capital of the World). No matter where you are going in San Saba, the commute is under 5 minutes drive but you also have churches, restaurants, the school, the football field, the grocery store, 3 gorgeous parks ALL within walking distance or a short bike ride. Thought about saving on fuel prices? How about a place where it is conceivable to not even need an automobile for daily use? Did I mention there is an 18 hole golf course set along the banks of the San Saba River just a short distance outside of town?

 Beginning from the ground up:

  • The foundation was professionally reinforced and strengthened

  •  All new sewer lines and pex plumbing lines

  • The underside of the flooring was spray foamed with closed cell

  • New underpinning and about a 3' tall crawl space throughout 

  • New electrical service panel and completely rewired interior

  • Some exterior insulation and attic insulation has been added

  • Interior hardwood floors and shiplap in good condition

  • Improved floor plan with two bedrooms one bath

  • All new Exterior siding and rehabbed front porch

  • Vacation rental potential

  • Small well onsite with low volume (currently not operable)

  • Budget friendly living with all city utilities and high speed internet available

  • 20 x 24 Workshop (professional wiring in place but not energized) 

  • Natural stone patio

  • Screened in back porch

  • Corner Lot with entrances available from 2 streets

  • Approximately $2,500 construction materials that will convey with a full price offer

The home is currently occupied and provides comfortable living "as is" in case this is a project you want to take on over an extended period of time, while you occupy the property. Currently the taxes run $924.77 annually but expect to experience an increase as the current improvements are captured and as it continues to be fully rehabilitated. This property has great opportunity and potential for a savvy buyer looking to make a gain on an investment or making their forever dream home a reality. San Saba, in general, is becoming more and more discovered by those looking for a better quality of life than what the major cities have to offer and tourism is growing as well. Late fall and winter brings lots of deer hunters to town and this coincides with harvest season for pecans and the peak of pecan sales and pecan confections are in high demand. 

Located about 1.5 hours from Austin and 1.25 from Fredericksburg you will experience a beautiful drive to get here through the hill country and the spring wildflowers lures folks in for miles away.
