The property is being offered as a 93.00± ac tract or in two (2) 46.50± ac tracts. Tract 1 is the west 46.50± ac and features a custom tiny home, an insulated, high cube 40’ storage container with a custom, roof-top deck, water well, and cattle pens with a loading chute.

LAND & WILDLIFE
The property is characterized as a diverse, rolling savannah dominated by Live Oak, Cedar Elm, Mesquite, Post Oak, and native grasses. The topography generally slopes from the northern boundary towards the southern boundary, featuring fantastic views of the surrounding area. With its rolling terrain and beautiful, scattered mature trees, there are an infinite number of potential homesites. White-tailed deer, Rio Grande turkey, and Mourning dove, and other native species of wildlife are abundant. There is also a small herd of Blackbuck antelope that pass through the property from time to time.
The headwaters of a seasonal drainage originate near the southwest corner of Tract 1 (West 46.50± ac) and runs for approximately 100’, exiting the property along the south boundary. Tract 2 (East 46.50± ac) takes in approximately 600’ of both sides of Mulberry Creek near the northeast corner of the property. Mulberry Creek is an intermittent, spring-fed stream that flows to the south into the Llano River.
TRACT 1 (WEST 46.50± AC)
Situated near the northwest portion of Tract 1 on a hill overlooking the property, there is a custom tiny home with an adjacent storage container. At 160 square feet, this custom-built brand new container is truly a tiny home and was built with the intention of being a VRBO in Fredericksburg, before making its detour to Mason County. The double glass front doors with double steel exterior cargo doors, which swing 270 degrees and tuck along the side of the home, allow for more spacious indoor-outdoor living and provide a true lock and leave protected space.
The interior layout is perfect for guest accommodations, prioritizing more space for the bed and full bathroom behind the sliding barn door, but also includes an efficiency kitchen with sink, custom cabinetry, including a fold-away table top and mini-refrigerator space. The walls and ceilings feature spray-foam insulation and are covered in white shiplap adding to the open and airy feel. A mini-split, tankless water heater, PEX plumbing, and conventional septic system add to the comfort and worry-free ownership of this efficient escape to the ranch.
The tiny home cabin is complimented by a 40' high-cube storage container, large enough to keep all of your ranch toys. This container is fully insulated with spray foam insulation and has all the exterior and interior electrical and lighting you will need for extra freezers/refrigerators or a hot tub under the stars. Speaking of the stars, there is a custom roof-top deck that is perfect for stargazing and catching those amazing views.
There is also a set of heavy-duty cattle pens with a loading chute, all constructed of steel pipe, that sits at the northwest corner of Tract 1.
CTEC power comes into the property at the northwest corner and extends to the custom tiny home and storage container, where an extra 50-amp RV hookup has also been installed. There is a 5 GPM, fully equipped water well that sits just north of the improvements that provides potable water.
Tract 1 has a typical ranch road in good condition that runs along the west boundary and then along the north boundary. The property has 5-strand barbed wire fencing along the west and north boundaries.
IMPROVEMENTS – TRACT 2 (EAST 46.50± AC)
Tract 2 is unimproved and offers a blank canvas to build the perfect weekend getaway or rural homestead. Tract 2 has a typical ranch road in good condition that runs near the north boundary and then south along the west side of Mulberry Creek. The seller will grant a CTEC easement at closing that will provide electricity to the property. The property has 5-strand barbed wire fencing along the north and east boundaries.
