Land: The Harper Gentleman’s Ranch is 126 acres of gentle rolling terrain, well suited for both hunting and recreation. The entire ranch is low-fenced with some cross fencing already in place for managing livestock. The western 60 acres has been cleared of Cedar, allowing for large, healthy Oaks to flourish. A seasonal water tank, roughly ½ acre in size, provides surface water for deer and game birds. The eastern 65 acres has been managed for hunting, removing and clearing brush for roads, blinds, and feeders. The brush cover holds the native Whitetail, roaming exotics, Dove, and Turkey very well. This area is known for the quality and quantity of free-range Axis and there are several blinds and feeders currently in place. The soil depth allows for wildlife and livestock to graze on the native grasses.
Improvements: The custom built, rustic ranch home features 2 large bedrooms, 2.5 baths, an office, open living area with 20 foot ceilings, and a fully upgraded kitchen. The wrap-around porches and 2nd floor balconies allow you to enjoy the hill country sunsets and breeze. The kitchen features granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and large bar that make it kitchen perfect for entertaining. The openness of the living area is well suited for large groups or family gatherings. Both bedrooms are very large and can accommodate multiple families and guest. The loft is currently used as an office with a balcony that looks out over the South for many miles. There is plenty of storage in the walk in closets and utility/laundry room. The standing seam metal roof is only 11 years old and in great condition. The large carport provides parking for 3 large vehicles, tractors, and ranch equipment. The automatic entry gate allows quick access down the crushed-granite entry road.
Septic is on site and was installed in 2007 when the home was built. There is great ground water in the area, with most wells averaging 300-400 ft. in depth, with 5 GPM flow. The well was drilled by the current owner and provides water to the home and nearby water troughs. The working-pens and cross fencing are both in good condition.
Taxes: Taxes were $2,460 for 2017 with Ag-Exemption in place.
