This "Tuscany meets Texas" exquisite inspired villa is nestled behind the trees of 251 gorgeous acres just 6 miles from Fredericksburg. The home emanates luxury and comfort in the Texas Hill Country with an overall sense of quiet escape. As you enter Creel Creek Ranch, you may drive by beautiful Elk, Black-buck, Axis, and Whitetail roaming the acreage. The flawless design of the home paired with a high fenced game ranch makes this property extremely unique and one of the most show-stopping ranches in the Hill Country. With its stunning, one-of-a-kind Italian inspired architecture, the home flows from room to room where the attention to every detail has been mastered and the marvelous panoramic views over Honey Creek are seen from multiple rooms and patios. The home includes an attached guest quarters and detached game/media room for a total of 11,388 SF with 5BR/5.5BA. There are 12 fireplaces and an outdoor kitchen. This serene villa is an entertainers dream! The gourmet kitchen has everything to offer, from entertaining with the open fire pizza oven, to a family feast using a 6 burner with French cook-top and double oven. The Habersham cabinetry, marble and wood countertops, and an extra-large fireplace turn this kitchen into a high end culinary experience. The kitchen flows to the casual living/dining area, then through stacking glass doors to the outside living area, featuring an infinity pool and hot tub overlooking Honey Creek offering you priceless Texas Hill Country views.
The upstairs has 3BR/2BA, a large office with a fireplace with a large patio area with a fireplace. The game/media room has a theater, vault, and great 1940s art deco bar with an outstanding fireplace. The master suite has an Italian polished limestone fireplace mantle with a seating area. The master bath has separate his/hers facilities and fireplaces, sharing a large shower. Also featured is a gym over the 4-car garage. The ranch itself has been manicured like a golf course. Honey Creek (perennial creek) has 4 dams and twists 3,263 feet throughout the southern portion of the ranch. Catfish Creek, Cross Stone Creek, and Creel Creek are seasonal creeks that weave throughout the estate. The ranch has four water wells on the property (85 GPM House, 60 GPM, 35 GPM, and 30 GPM). A small pond is located on the north east side of the ranch. A rock barn has 848 SF of living area, 1BR/1BA with a great country kitchen. Forty-five+ acres of improved grasses are available for grazing. Elevation and topographical changes range from 1,780 to 1,975 feet.
The owners have created a one-of-a-kind home and property. Their vision, design and artistic touches resonate throughout the property. They purchased the land in 2003. The ranch had no outstanding features at the time. Clearing cedar and unwanted brush opened up the beauty of the land. They found a trail to a hill top looking over a small creek. Once the cedar and brush were cleared, the home site was established. They then began their work on the live water constructing 4 dams, clearing and enlarging Honey Creek. Mother Nature shined through. The setting was perfect like a shining star with private, serene and tranquil vistas. One will experience the sound of nature, water flowing over a dam, beautiful sunsets and sunrises of manicured acreage. The architectural design utilizing the awesome setting, flows naturally from room to room to the outdoor living areas where breathtaking views will be the highlight of the day.
Once you set foot on Creel Creek Ranch, you will sense the heart and intention behind this special place and the beauty will overwhelm you! Its truly a taste of Italy in Fredericksburg.
