Private and serene with a ton of improvements, this one-of-a-kind Texas Ranch is completely ready to be enjoyed. Spring fed ponds, strong seasonal creeks, active wildlife and massive, mature pines and oaks are just the start with this absolutely stunning property.
The La Tranquila ranch, which consists of a total of 558 acres, feels significantly larger than it is due to the fact that it has never been clear cut and has never been used for large scale cattle grazing. In an area where many forests have been scorched by wildfires, La Tranquila remains untouched. The grounds feature lush vegetation including towering pines, enormous mature oaks and other hardwood treesmany of which are a hundred years old, and all fully intactand there are multiple live spring-fed ponds on the property, along with a number of creeks. Situated towards the southeast of Bastrop County, it has fantastic access to Historic Bastrop and Smithville, and is less than an hour from Downtown Austin, and less than 2 hours from Houston. For the person who loves the convenience of the nearby hubs such as Austin, San Antonio or Houston, but wants to easily get away to the serenity of nature, La Tranquila is the perfect fit.
Very recently dozens of strategically placed roads, trails and paths have been completed throughout the ranch that make it fully accessible by truck or ATV. One can literally spend days exploring the forest, park-like senderos, creeks and deep ravines and never see the same area twice. This however is just the start. La Tranquila Ranch has been improved and groomed impeccably over the last 5 and a half years by the current owners, and while these improvements are far too many to list here, below are some of the outstanding highlights that have been recently added to this amazing property.
