Ranch Description

Stewardship an ethic that embodies the responsible planning and management of resources. Balance Ranch continues to evolve and improve with each passing day. Latest updates include standing metal seam roofs, expanded and updated horse barn, improved and repurposed air-conditioned shop. On-going maintenance includes arena footing improvements, normal ranch preservation with mesquite and weed control, riding trail maintenance, fence updates and well as maintenance on all irrigation systems and infrastructure. Balance Ranch isn't a McMansion on some acreage. It has history, character, and a level of comfort that would be hard to duplicate. The ranch is 131 acres in a tranquil and relaxing 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 about an hour from San Antonio. The nearest traffic signal is 15 miles away in Lockhart, the Barbecue Capital of Texas. The 1950 brick ranch house 1,800 sq. ft. 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, all 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 sq. ft., built in 2005, is handicap accessible with 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a galley kitchen, stained concrete floors and wide views of the property. The guest house is fenced for pets. The land is fenced and cross-fenced for livestock 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 hotrod garage and a metal shop. The garage has a centralized 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 custom stall fronts, extensive lighting, fans, a feed room, and a tack room with a sink and cabinets. The wash rack and barn have heated water. The barn is near the 100' x 150' walled arena with a raised viewing deck. The area also includes a trail obstacle 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.
