Description: Welcome to this amazing 5-acre property located just 1.5 miles (an easy bike ride) from the charming DOWNTOWN of Bastrop, Texas with NO RESTRICTIONS. The property is flat and easy to build on. Towards the rear of the property is bluff with a perfect home site where you would have views for miles and is elevated over the valley behind, and also has an amazing view of the pond next door (so large it’s more of a lake) where ducks and geese often land. There are unlimited other home sites as well for a second home. Collect fresh eggs from your chickens every morning/ raise some sheep… and then head into one of Bastrop’s many restaurants for brunch or a craft beer at a local watering hole. There is also a barn/garage/carport on the property with a portion already having a concrete slab and garage doors. This property offers the best of both worlds, with the peace and serenity of country living and the convenience of city living. As you approach the property, you will notice that the property has a high end vinyl gate along Hoffman Road with a formal gate entrance ready for your future electronic gate. Upon entering, you will be greeted by a lush landscape of pasture, mature trees, and rolling hills that highlight the beautiful terrain and create a breathtaking backdrop for this idyllic property. Enjoy the beauty of Texas nature and the peace and serenity of country living, all while being just a short drive from the vibrant downtown of Bastrop.

What Utilities are Included?
Buyer will need to install a well. The cost of a well is ~$16,000, but then water usage is essentially unlimited forever for only the cost of electricity to run the well pump. Installing a well is a good option for larger properties like this as the entire property can be irrigated without paying for monthly water usage. Electricity is available through Bluebonnet Electric. Buyer will need to have Bluebonnet drop an electric pole where desired. Cost for a pole is ~$2,000. Buyer to verify.
