A secluded recreational/hunting property located in the sand hills of Caldwell County near the community of McMahan. This 160-acre tract is heavily wooded with rolling topography with multiple high points and long-range views. The deep sandy soils make it easy to clear, giving the new owner a blank canvas to create their own paradise less than an hour from Austin, 1.5 hours from San Antonio, and 2.5 hours from Houston. This property is in the sand hills of Caldwell County, which is known for deep sandy soils, great topography with big views, and lots of Post Oaks and Pines. A unique plant species on the property is the Dwarf Pawaw which is the only larval host to the Zebra Swallowtail Butterfly. These Pawpaws produce a small fruit that has a banana-like taste and texture. Pawpaw are native to the area but limited in abundance. The land is about 90% oak woodland and 10% native pasture. This closed canopy woodland has hundreds of Post Oaks, Pines, and Blackjack Oaks and provides excellent cover for whitetail deer and hogs. There is over 80’ elevation change across the property. This rolling topography provides multiple high points with scenic long-range views. Multiple creek drainages traverse the tract, including the headwaters of Big Sandy Branch. Two small ponds are located on the southern portion of the property, which serve as a crucial water source for the local wildlife. The owner has found numerous stone projectile points confirming the use of the property by early Native Americans. There is even rumored to be a silver mine on the property dating back to Spanish colonization according to the owner.
Bluebonnet Electric is available along the southern boundary. Access is off Altamira Ln, a private road that connects to Sand Hill Rd. An inactive pipeline easement crosses the southern portion of the property east-to-west. **Attractive seller financing available. **
