Tarcoola Ranch, located just outside Bastrop, is a spectacular acreage property situated on the banks of the famous Colorado River. Lush pastures, native trees, fields of wildflowers, and approximately 1200 feet of river frontage make this private retreat a truly a one-of-a-kind property. The stunning 5 bedroom home features multiple areas for entertaining both indoors and out. Vaulted ceilings, wood floors, stone fireplaces, chef's kitchen, game room with wet bar, private spaces, and so much more make this home ideal for family gatherings and guests. Expansive decks wrapping the home offer fabulous views of the water. The spacious yard slopes gently down to the river which provides for hours of recreation including swimming, fishing, and tubing. It is located on the Bastrop-Wilbarger Paddling Trail-a 14.3 mile riparian corridor providing for exceptional kayaking and canoeing. There are excellent fishing and birding opportunities given the diversity of plant and animal life along this spectacular stretch of the Colorado River. The property has an existing wildlife exemption but is also home to 6 handsome longhorn cattle. Within 25 minutes of Austin Bergstrom International Airport and all Austin has to offer, this unique property is perfect for a weekend get away, an event center, or a peaceful, permanent home in the heart of central Texas.
