Property Description:

Property is contingent. The scenic 298 +/- acre Peg Leg Farm presents a unique opportunity to own irrigated pastures with 3,850 feet of San Saba River frontage. Accessible by Turkey Barn Road, a 2,500 foot caliche road provides great views of coastal pastures leading to the home and facilities. Near the home, the river is easily accessible and gives way to beautiful tree-lined riverbanks and native brush that support the wildlife.

The farm includes 175 +/- ac of irrigated coastal from two pivots and 40 +/- ac of dry land. An old foreman’s home is situated on the SE corner of the farm with multiple barns and sheds, custom working cattle pens with a large truck loading chute, and an on-suite 1 bed/1 bath apartment that are all serviced by a domestic well.

The portion the property that resides on the river includes a 100 +/- ft dam and the historic Peg Leg Crossing. A small stock pond is situated on the NE corner of the property near the entrance.

Although now non-functioning, Peg Leg Crossing was historically the site of the Spanish-Apache battle and has been repeatedly been used as a crossing by the Spanish, and during the Civil War. Later, it was used for cattle drives for the Western Trail but was abandoned when State Highway 29 was built connecting Mason to Menard.
