First time offering in over a century. The Reavis River Ranch is located around 45 minutes from Austin, Leander, and Cedar Park, on the Burnet and Bell County line. The ranch fronts paved CR 221, just off of FM 2657. Nearby Copperas Cove provides grocery shopping, medical facilities, and restaurants. Killeen is around 20 minutes away and has mall shopping, restaurants, and a hospital. The Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport is about 15-20 minutes away and offers direct, non-stop flights to Dallas, Fort Worth, and Houston. From these hub airports, passengers can fly to any destination in the world without changing airlines.
The varied terrain gives the ranch a much bigger feel than the actual acreage. There is over 200 feet of elevation change, yet the land is not rugged. There are magnificent views from several locations. Gregory Creek meanders through the property and the water flows clear over the rock bottom. There are waterfalls, limestone bluffs, and numerous dam sites. Towering pecans, oaks, and elms line the banks of the creek. In addition to the creek there is frontage on the Lampasas River. Overall tree cover is fairly dense, providing excellent habitat for game and the open meadows are ideal for food plots. Along the river is a 50 acre coastal field. There are 4 wells, the newest one drilled in 2011 and yields 30 GPM. Excellent hunting for deer, turkey, dove, hogs, and varmints.
Improvements include a nice 3-1 brick home (1,747 sq ft). The home is in very good condition and is well suited for a weekend home or foreman's residence. There is also a small hunter's cabin.
The Reavis River Ranch has loads of character and offers a multitude of possibilities: from recreation, hunting, home place, or future development. This one is worth a look! By Appointment Only.
