EIEIO is a spectacular 106+/- acre farm, 6 years in the making and about 30 minutes east of downtown Austin. It is rare to find acreage so highly improved and having such an abundance of surface water. Located on an idyllic winding country road just outside Pflugerville, the magic begins when you enter the gate and see the vast green, rolling landscape leading up past the lake and to the casa. It is a gentle and pastoral landscape that imparts a feeling of home and simpler times.
There are stately shade trees lining parts of the perimeter, which in itself is fully fenced with over 13,000 feet of welded pipe. The main lake is stocked and is an enormous expanse of water that has at its head, a bridge and rock waterfall. The southern shore features a white sand beach, a shady cabana and outdoor kitchen. It is the perfect place for entertaining guests or whiling away the hours.
Built on the highest point and overlooking the lake is rustic metal and rock barn with high eaves and wide covered porches. With almost 3,000 sq. ft. of storage, there is plenty of space for any mans assortment of tools and gear.
Giving special consideration to the equestrian, the barn can enclose a fully enclosed feed, tool and tack room. Stretching out from the main structure is a shady covered patio making the foot print almost 5,000 square feet. Nothing has been neglected in this space either, an outdoor kitchen, fire pit, fire wood storage and a hot tub just to name a few. In addition still, there is a compact two-room apartment that is done in the best taste and highest quality. Thinking ahead, the owner also installed full hook-ups for travel a travel trailer and an outsized septic system.
The farm overall is planted in thick Coastal Bermuda and there are areas that have been left fallow to attract game and provide them cover. There is also a young orchard and ornamental landscaping. Other areas have also been improved, such as one to provide a discrete area for staging farm equipment and materials, a rifle range with a covered firing bench and targets out to 250 yards and, a unique home site area that is encompassed by a large rock wall.
There is no shortage of water on the ranch, in addition to the large main lake, there is a secondary lake in the back of the property that is feed by a creek and is impounded in several spots below it.
The farm has its own water irrigation system to supply the diverse landscaping placed throughout the farm. Supporting the irrigation system are two water taps from the public utility system, a 1 and a 2 to ensure a plentiful supply. The main road in the farm is all weather with a graded base. The seller is currently improving the grass cover for hay farming. Aside from the exceptional fishing opportunities, the ducks are plentiful and the dove hunting more resemble the fast and heavy action found in the Rio Grande Valley.
It doesnt get any better than this, a family place that is easy to get excited about because it has so much to offer but just 30 minutes to the city. One thing is for sure; this premier property will put a smile on your face every time you drive through the gate. Minerals are negotiable. Make your appointment to see this special property today.
