A river? A private bridge? Ranch for sale in Texas has it all — even a shooting range

A hidden gem that’s not so hidden has landed on the real estate market in Central Texas. The Long Road Ranch, a Williamson County property that stretches out over almost 140 acres of prime Loan Star land, lists for $6.499 million.

The rural paradise comes with a lot of features that will transfix any and all outdoorsmen.

“As you enter the property stone pillars and wrought iron gates welcome you in along a mile long winding driveway that transitions from hayfields along the HWY 29 frontage to the pecan-studded river bottom along the serene San Gabriel River,” the listing on Ruple Ranch & Land says.

“The San Gabriel River was initially named Río de San Francisco Xavier in 1716. It was later mislabeled ‘San Javriel’ on an 1829 map by Stephen F. Austin. The San Xavier missions were founded in 1745 near Brushy Creek’s mouth. In May 1839, the river was the site of the significant battle of the San Gabriels, and Brushy Creek saw the battle of Brushy Creek in February 1839.”

According to a news release, the property has “what is believed to be the only private bridge on the San Gabriel River.”

The primary retreat is about 2,930-square-feet, has three bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and an abundance of features, including:

  • Open-concept kitchen

  • High ceilings

  • Outdoor entertaining area

  • Storage space

  • Fenced yards

And of course, the estate has so much more to offer:

  • Stables

  • Four ponds

  • Shooting range

  • Well house

  • New barn

  • Paddocks

  • Water well

The listing is held by both Ruple Properties and Compass.

Williamson County is about 40 miles north of Austin.
