Property Description

Custom rock home on 57 acres. Mostly rock construction, with one addition of wood frame and stucco. Large custom kiva style fireplace. House was lived in by owners, and a work in progress, so while livable there is some more work on the house to be completed. Also located on the property is a very old 3 room rock structure, walls are in good shape, the back part of the wall is the hillside. Needs a roof. Many possibilities for the old rock structure. Also on the property is a large dirt tank that captures a lot of water during heavy rain fall. The tank needs to be sealed to hold water longer in between rains. An additional 30 acres owned by the seller that butts up to the 57 acres can also be purchased. Outstanding views, terrain is hilly. Easy access, approx. 1 mile of paved State road 170. Not far from the Lajitas Golf Resort. Motivated seller, open to offer!
