+/-53.37 acres in Kerr County, Texas
Center Point, Texas
The property begins after crossing the center of Turtle Creek [which forms the north boundary] and following the frontage through a wooded tunnel of cypress and oak trees. The road turns into a large field of approximately 18 acres, perfect for a hay field. Continuing up the hill on the asphalt driveway leads you through more oak trees and limestone cliffs. At the top of the hill through a gate is the spacious homestead. This area is mostly pasture-land dotted with Oaks. The south portion has groups of fruitful pecans, expansive oaks, persimmon, elm, and cedar. Open grassy areas in between boast beautiful seasonal wildflowers. A spring-fed creek meanders through the limestone, creating cool clear pools and babbling waterfalls.
Year-round Turtle Creek runs along the north boundary with a low-water crossing and 600 feet of frontage to the center of the creek. It feeds into the Guadalupe River less than a quarter-mile down-stream. The south wooded portion boasts a spring-fed creek with clear pools, a wet-weather creek, and small pond. A water well serves the house and barns.
Built in 1994, the 1,968 square foot home has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and an office. It features large front and back porches, vaulted ceilings, fireplace, terracotta tile floors, and a large master walk-in shower. The yard is landscaped with many native plants and flowerbeds, and a high-fenced garden is located in the back.
The 800 sq. ft. fully enclosed storage barn has electricity, water, two garage doors, and contains the water well in a separate room. The 500 square foot equipment shed is large enough for a tractor or other implements. Several sets of sturdy, sucker rod style goat pens with cross fences separate the property, allowing livestock to rotate between several pastures. All pens include metal building feeding areas, feed rooms, metal roof shaded areas, and water troughs supplied by water lines running from the well.
An abundance of Axis and Whitetail deer frequent the property, along with songbirds, turkey, dove, rabbits & hares, and occasional coyotes and bobcat. Fish are likely to be found in Turtle Creek.
Property has water rights from Turtle Creek for irrigation purposes - as allowed by TCEQ.
The property currently has an agricultural valuation, keeping taxes manageable at $1,340 in 2019, including the homestead exemption. For the buyer interested in switching to a Wildlife Management valuation, this should be feasible through the local appraisal district.
