This awesome spot lies about 1 mile west of US Hwy. 87, 8 miles north of bustling Mason (pop. 2100, supplies, restaurants, shops, med. clinic, DQ, pharmacy), a thriving small community with a progressive school system that has brought home 2 Lone Star Cups since 2017. Brady is 20 miles north, Fredericksburg (major retail/food/arts center) is 50 miles south. Austin, San Antonio and San Angelo are each about 2 hours away from the ranch, DFW is about 3. The locale consists of working/recreational farms and ranches with focus on cattle/sheep/goat production, deer hunting and water recreation.
Groundwater appears to be plentiful from about 150’ – 300’ depth, but there is no well on site, though several are nearby. Once part of a larger property, water was piped in from off-site.
The site overlooks vast slabs of granite to the east, with irrigated land between it and the granite. This gives the area a very “Sedona” look. The ranch is pristine, with large oaks, cedar and mesquite surrounded by desirable woody shrubs such as persimmon, agarita and bee brush, with native seasonal grasses predominant. The site consists of a prominent, 1980’ ridge thru the center, falling to about 40 acres of sloping pastureland to the east. Habitat is good for deer, turkey, hogs and varmints, and is adequate for cattle grazing. This is the quintessential “blank canvas.”
A solid pole barn with 3 sides will hold a couple of RV’s, and the property appears to have perimeter fencing with drivable interior pasture roads. An old mobile home has no value. A loop road takes one “up top” and back down again, to enjoy the truly stupendous 270 degree views.
Turkey Hill, simply put, is the “blank canvas” many seek but few find, with a near- perfect location just N of prized Mason. Staggering vistas, virgin timber, abundant wildlife and some tillable ground add up to the perfect combo. Access is solid on a maintained road near pavement, and monster-view homesites are abound!
Listing price is $5,500/acre, sellers will provide basic survey and title insurance. Mineral conveyance is negotiable, the land is in the Mason ISD and estimated ag- exempt taxes are $160/year.
