40 Acres In The Country
With Hwy 29 frontage and just outside of city limits of Bertram, TX this 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home sits on 40 amazing acres. There is something for everyone here. There is pasture land for grazing livestock or horses as well as thick tree cover for hunting or wildlife watching. The home has a private, gated, crushed granite driveway with direct access and frontage to US Hwy 29.
Self Sufficient Living
There is plenty of space and plenty of Hill Country sunshine to install anything from a roof-mounted solar system to a large-scale, completely off-grid solar field. Not to mention, there are two wells on the property with a tank that can keep you and your livestock in water, indefinitely. Not to mention a large concrete stock tank and a cistern for pressure and storage. One of the wells still has the windmill pump on it so in the event of a power outage, you could still potentially get water. You can plant crops in the open field and the layout is such that it would be perfect for row crops.
This acreage has been in the same family for generations and has been meticulously cared for and has been loved like few places are anymore. There are two barns on the property that could be converted into a workshop or storage buildings. One of the barns on the property is the original homestead dating back about 100 years. The old farm equipment on the property really gives it a nostalgic feeling and anyone with enough time or the drive to do it, could bring it back to life and have a working farm in no time.
Investment Property or Development
Being situated so close to Hwy 29 this could also be an incredible property for income potential by putting in development. Getting water to a development is usually the hardest issue to overcome, but with two wells already drilled, that will not be the case here. Power is already on the property so you’re saving on the cost of running power from the street onto the land. This could easily be broken into 10, 4-acre homesites, 4, 10-acre sites, or anything else your imagination can create.
Amazing Hunting Only a 9-iron Distance From Town
With so much tree cover to hide in, grasses to graze on, and water sources to drink from, this property is uniquely positioned to be a hunting oasis, close to town. There have been deer, pigs, turkey, quail, dove, and guinea hens on the property in recent years. The current owners rarely hunt the property so there is little to no pressure on the wildlife and they feel safe enough to wander around during the day, sometimes.
