Posted on: March 4th, 2023 by John Dean

Long Road Ranch encompasses a sprawling, unique and utopian 137.21 acres highlighted with stunning elevations, year round river access, ponds, stately pecans and more. From the front gate to the rear corner, it’s full of opportunities in a highly sought-after area whether youre looking for a ranch to use for equestrian uses, corporate retreat, full time home, weekend getaway, venue or more. The list is endless.

Upon arriving at the entrance to Long Road Ranch you’re welcomed with a private, gated entrance and a paved road stretching over a mile through towering pecan trees, across a river and up the incredible terrain changes towards the main home.

Live water ranches are some of the most sought out properties because theyre difficult to find. The historic San Gabriel River traverses just under 1/2 mile of the property providing year-round use and enjoyment of the live-water feature for fishing, kayaking, and all the free sunset views you can take in. The winding river beckons memories of simpler times and days well-spent exploring along its pristine reserve. It boasts wide banks and some deep swimming holes as well. This area of the San Gabriel is home to all sorts of wildlife from deer and hogs, to songbirds and migratory birds. Enjoy clear-water fishing for catfish, sunfish, bass, carp, gar and more. For the serious fisherman, there’s great opportunity near the bridge thanks to its massive rocks protruding out of the water. Just ~5 miles down the river to the East, the San Gabriel enters Granger Lake, a 4,000-acre impoundment that is a well-known local attraction for boating, hunting, camping, hiking and horseback riding.

This ranch features what is believed to be the only permanent and improved private crossing of the San Gabriel River in the area. This private bridge is engineered and constructed of concrete, being built to stand the test of time-all the while giving you sole use and access to cross the river. There’s truly no greater privacy than this nor a more rare feature in a ranch for this area of Texas. In the area where the bridge is located, you also own BOTH sides of the river.

Dozens of giant and ancient pecans dot this area along the river. Theyve called this area along the river home for many decades and possibly centuries before, thanks to the rich and fertile soils that have been amassed over time with the ebb and flow of the waterway. They provide endless shade and even some income from their fruit. An RV site and picnic/barbecue area is ready to use under the towering giants.

The middle of the property boasts several large water features. A seasonal 7-acre pond and stone-lined moat are in place. A 1.25-acre pond is well-established and fully stocked with bass, sitting just behind the home. Utilize this pond for fishing, swimming, boating and taking in that last few minutes of sunlight while you sit on its wooden dock. Portions of this pond are stone lined adding a sharp contrast from the surrounding hillside.

A regulation skeet and trap range resides in this area, offering a space for the sportsman to hone their skills or entertain family, friends and guests. Complete with several stone towers for throwers, 3 covered pavilions and a built-in barbecue pit, this area is ready to kick back and relax in.

Upon cresting the large hilltop towards the rear of the property, youll find a 2008-built, 2,930 square foot home with 3 beds, 3 full baths and 1 half baths. Each of the rooms are a suite with their own bath. The home sits over 90′ above the river area and shows off the incredible views of pasture, ponds, lake, river and well beyond for miles of the surrounding countryside. Inside the home, it features a rustic design, high ceilings, and large kitchen.In the rear of the home, an infinity pool and hot tub coax you to end the day there, while enjoying some of the best views on the ranch. A 2-car garage and covered trailer parking offer protection for you equipment. The improvements are all fed by a nearby water well at the rear of the property. Nearby, a second 6,000+ square foot home site is waiting with a slab already poured. The sellers have correlating plans for a large, main home. There are several additional home and cabin sites on the property, all with astounding views, some with even higher elevations than the current home.

The ranch was originally set up with the equestrian in mind. The horse facilities include two large barns and areas for exercise, boarding and training. The main barn is 150×60 foot, with multiple stalls, office space, tack room and exterior paddocks and horse walker. A second barn is currently in progress near the current home and will house additional stall areas and future living quarters.

Away from the barns, the property is fenced and cross fenced for cattle and horses alike. Many areas of the property are used for hay production. Aside from these agricultural uses, the property would excel in uses for riding ATVs, hunting, fishing, venue, corporate retreat, and any other use you can imagine. An ag exemption is in place, saving on property taxes.

Location is everything, and this property embodies that thought. Located just minutes from Taylor and under 10 miles from the new Samsung site. Downtown Georgetown is just 15 minutes away and youre about 10 minutes from the 130 toll road. Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, Tesla Gigafactory and downtown Austin are both approximately 40 minutes to the South. The property has great access via highway 29 from both Taylor and I-35. No dirt roads or confusing turns. It just doesnt get any more convenient than this, all the while maintaining unrivaled privacy.
