**UNDER CONTRACT **
Just 1.5 miles south of Hext, Texas, on FM 1221…
Welcome to 5 Mile Ranch, where you can truly have it all. This 290 acre property presents a luxurious 4 bedroom, 3 full bath, 2 half bath home with artisan touches throughout. When not enjoying your heated pool and hot tub at the cabana—with outdoor kitchen and full bathroom—relax with some fishing at the fully-stocked lake. You can also get in a game of tennis while the irrigated hay fields are being watered.
The ranch home is a show-stopper, with no detail left unchecked. The bright, airy kitchen boasts three ovens, a gas griddle, trash compactor, mixer rack, dishwasher, eat-in island, and much more. A large dining area comfortably seats your guests, while the great room introduces tall, vaulted ceilings with plenty of large windows and a splendid fireplace. The distinctive fireplace mantel was designed and hand-sculpted from a local mesquite tree by artist Charles Stuart. The natural mesquite finish complements the Sonoma Cream stone collected from a nearby Hill Country quarry.
You’ll find the master suite on the first level, its bathroom featuring heated floors and heated towel rack with a stately footed tub. Two other bedrooms are located on the first floor as well.
Also downstairs is a study/library featuring a custom-designed ladder by Luna Bella artisans with French bronze trims. Another can’t-miss feature is an original-design wall pendulum clock by Luna Bella. The design idea came to the Luna Bella artisans while visiting a small village in Prague. Both industrial and antique components were used to create this piece.
The beautiful custom Alder wood staircase is trimmed with hand painted tiles by an artist in San Miguel de Allende, leading to the bedroom on the second level.
Just steps outside the home await your outdoor oasis—the heated pool, hot tub and cabana can accommodate you, your family and all your guests. There is a full outdoor kitchen and the pool house has a bathroom with shower. Fenced tennis courts and washer & horseshoe pits provide even more outdoor entertainment.
Five Mile Creek (a wet-weather creek) runs through the property, and is backed up to form the stunning 1.5 acre lake, which is kept at constant level via Hickory water well. Paved access from the front gate peruses over the dam to the main residence. The lake is Bentonite-sealed, and stocked with Florida Hybrid Bass, catfish and other bait fish, and includes a continuous feeder. Beautifully lit at night; you’ll never want to leave!
Whitetail deer are abundant, and the property is set up and ready to hunt with 3 game feeders, 2 protein feeders and one blind.
Five Mile Ranch is not just a recreational dream; there’s work to be done as well! Two center-pivot-fed hay fields allow for consistent quality hay production, and beautiful green landscapes to the rolling topography.
Other water on the property includes 3 tanks, 2 ponds (some sealed with Bentonite), and 20 concrete water troughs wrapped with sandstone. Two water wells supply the home, one Hickory well for the fishing lake, 1 windmill, plus two additional wells drilled and cased and ready to use.
With the addition of a great set of pipe working pens, there are also several sheds for livestock and equipment, a 40’x50’ metal equipment barn, and over 2 miles of interior cross fencing.
Additional amenities include a solar electric front gate with video monitoring, security system throughout the home, mud room, 3-car garage, sprinkler system, RO water, chicken coop, and so much more. Seller is willing to price some home furnishings and equipment.
Gently rolling terrain with beautiful live oaks along the 5-Mile Creek bottom. Excellent soils for growing coastal hay and other crops.
Beautiful 4 Bedroom home with heated pool, hot tub, tennis court, and outdoor kitchen! Nice size equipment barn and several sheds located on the ranch.
Hunting, ranching, fishing, kayaking, swimming and much more on this hill country show place.
