Once in a lifetime opportunity to buy a REAL piece of Texas History. The 1848 home was built by David McFadin, a Texas war hero who fought under General Sam Houston in the Battle of San Jacinto for Texas Independence in 1836. McFadin was also one of the first settlers to come to Williamson County and the home is the oldest home in the county. Exterior and interior walls are 27" thick with 10ft ceilings, this house was designed to protect against the Indian attacks. The home has been totally remodeled from top to bottom including new wiring and new HVAC's. An active spring behind the home is where the confederate soldiers camped during the civil war and it is still flowing freely today. The McFadin Farm is 78.17 UNRESTRICTED acres, roughly 30 acres of cultivated land and 48 acres of native pasture with 2300' of FM 1331 road frontage. The small strip of land between the McFadin Farm and the San Gabriel River belongs to the Corp of Engineers. Jonah water meter on the property with Oncor electric service. Only the 30 acres that is currently cultivated is ag exempt. The home is 2, 548 sq feet. 3 Bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Original wood floors throughout except in downstairs bathroom that has tile flooring. All original doors and windows with two wood burning fireplaces. There is also a screened in porch on the back of the house. This home would make a beautiful stately home or can easily be utilized as an event center or business. Toward the back of the property is a large newly constructed 5, 600 sq ft shop. The property is very wooded with several creeks and abundant wildlife to include deer, hogs, turkey, fox, bobcat and coyotes. Just a short jaunt to the river on the Core of Engineer land, you'll have access to the San Gabriel River for kayaking or fishing, and just another short jaunt leads to the Commanche Bluff that overlooks the river with spectacular views. Also, only minutes from this property is Lake Granger, where you can enjoy all kinds of fun and recreation.
