Nestled on +/- 10 acres, this one of a kind property boasts a two-story 1880s German Fachwerk farmhouse that has been meticulously restored and crafted to allow the home to offer modern day conveniences while still maintaining the charm and historic authenticity of its time. In addition to the main home, the property affords a detached guest quarters, an expansive limestone entertaining area and breath taking views across the Guadalupe River Valley. Deeded access to the Guadalupe River adds additional value and year round enjoyment to the property without high waterfront prices. The moment you drive through the gated entry and see the charming windmill, you begin to experience the beauty of this property from its lush landscaping and gardens to breathtaking Texas Hill Country views.
Strategically restored to maintain as much historic authenticity as possible, this property features a 2,772 square foot home under a standing seam metal roof, with two levels and walk out basement. Hand planed logs with mortise and tenon joints, long leaf pine floors, bead board ceilings and original sand brick walls captivate your attention as you walk through the home. The main home features three living areas, three bedrooms with three full baths and one half bath.
A chefs and entertainers delight, the kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances, a Wolf stove, copper veggie sink, farm-style kitchen sink, granite countertops and walk in pantry. Gorgeous custom cabinetry and vintage Clear Springs Store pool table lighting were artistically crafted to go hand in hand with the historical design. Numerous windows allow for an abundance of sunlight in the kitchen and long distance tranquil Hill Country views.
The master suite on the first level also affords an abundance of natural light and offers a walk in closet. Complete with a claw foot tub and walk in shower the master bath is sure to please. The second level of the main home features two bedrooms each with their own private baths. With over 500 square feet, the walk out basement was cut out and reinforced underneath the farmhouse and is accessed via an authentic German stairway or exterior door. The solid rock surrounding the basement walls keeps the area cool and makes for an ideal movie room and/or wine cellar. The utility room is also located in the basement.
With over 420 square feet, the detached corn crib barn, made of 100% salvaged materials, bodes well for out of town guests, a large private study or game room complete with a full bath. Take your pick and relax on the covered front or three level Ipe deck as both provide a perfect place to relax and enjoy hill country views and breezes on a hot Texas day. A grand limestone fireplace is the focal point of the expansive stone patio complete with a wood burning pizza oven. An ideal place to gaze into the views of the Guadalupe River Valley or enjoy a fire under the starry night sky.
With approximately three and a half cleared acres the land maintains its natural beauty with an abundance of mature Live Oaks, a seasonal creek and native flora and fauna. Additional improvements include several storage barns, basketball court and batting cage, dog kennel and raised vegetable gardens. The property has one well and an aerobic septic system.
Come experience this jewel tucked away in the Texas Hill Country! You have to see it to believe it.
