BALANCE RANCH - 131 acres in a tranquil country setting off the beaten path yet close to Austin (40
min to Austin-Bergstrom Airport, 25 minutes from Circuit of the
Americas (COTA) and San Antonio (65 min). The nearest traffic signal is 15 miles away in Lockhart, Texas, the Barbecue Capital of Texas.
The 1950 brick ranch house (1,800 sqft) was re-modeled in 2007 retaining original items such as
hardwood floors, glass door knobs, and fireplace while adding modern features such as a tankless water
heater, Silestone counter-tops, new plumbing, and wiring. The ranch house has three bedrooms with
one perfect for an office, a central living/dining area, office, large laundry room, and 1.5 bathrooms. The
brick guest house (1,800 sqft), built in 2005, is handicap accessible with 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a
galley kitchen, colored concrete floors and wide views of the property.
The land is fenced and cross-fenced; two of the three stock tanks are stocked with copper nose blue gill
and largemouth bass. A working windmill pumps water to pastures and an irrigation well provides
service to over 25 acres. Two hay-pastures are planted in KN-47 Bermuda with winter rye/Devine'
Little Burr Medic. Additional native grass pastures provide rotational grazing. Other pastures and
fenced areas are primarily for hunting dove/teal/duck, while the rear is wooded with groomed trails
and multiple locations to hunt deer or turkeys. Full mineral rights can convey to the new owner.
The shop building is divided into a woodshop and a metal shop. The woodshop has a centralized dust
collection system and air conditioning to provide a great space for hobby activities and is also used as
home gym. The metal shop has 20 and 40 amp service for welding equipment. It is backed by a large
gravel laydown area for equipment or trailer parking and implement storage. There are three 30 Amp
RV drops around the property.
The barn includes configurable stalls, extensive lighting, and a tack room with a sink and cabinets. The
wash rack has heated water. The barn is near the 100x150 walled arena with a raised viewing deck.
The area also includes a trail practice area.
Gated entry is solar powered, designed to allow 53 ft trailer easy entry. This hidden Texas treasure is
ready to handle horses or cattle, to offer hunting and fishing, to entertain family and friends, or allow
you a quiet get-away. The name says it all: Balance Ranch.
