Properties this size and in this area do not come on the market very often. There are endless opportunities for this investment to serve as a permanent residence, weekend getaway, B&B or venue.
The terrain has a gentle roll with many large Live Oak and Cedar Elm trees dotting the landscape, providing a park-like setting with manicured areas where cedar has been selectively removed over the years. Enjoy horseback riding, hiking, or going on an exploring excursion with friends and family down to the creek area. An interesting seasonal grotto watersheds into Onion Creek and is a neat area to explore. Spend time on the sleeping porch where you can relax and take in beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
The south boundary of the property is the center line of highly coveted Onion Creek, which stretches for 800 +/- feet. The creek is a beautiful feature, holding water during many parts of the year. When water is bountiful, enjoy fishing, tubing, canoeing, and swimming.
The property is under an ag exemption with a low fenced perimeter, excluding a small section of land adjacent to the creek.
Modern Farmhouse (Main Home)
The beautiful 3,140 +/- sf modern farmhouse has a Southern Living ambiance with an inviting floor plan that goes hand in hand with living in the Texas Hill Country. The farmhouse has 3 bedrooms, each with an exceptional view and its own en-suite bathroom, as well as an additional half bath downstairs. Throughout the home, there are incredible reclaimed longleaf pine floors that add a nice warmth to the home.
The kitchen is a wonderful gathering place for family or friends with a massive granite island, stainless steel appliances, including a double oven, oversized refrigerator, a large farm sink, and a gas top stove. Directly off of the kitchen are a pocket office and a large walk-in pantry.
The open floor concept was designed for entertaining. The living room flows nicely onto a heated and cooled sleeping porch, with either room having its own individual fireplaces. Additionally, there is a large utility room and mudroom.
The main compound has a detached garage with drive-through doors on either side of the building. The garage has a bathroom downstairs, as well as a nice apartment upstairs. The upstairs guest quarters are ideal for overflow guests, grandkids, or friends that wish to have a more private space during their stay. The apartment is 470+/- sf and has 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom.
An additional two-bedroom and 2 bathroom home reside on the property. Built-in the 1940s, the home is 1,250 +/- sf and would be ideal as an additional guest quarter, foremans residence, or could serve as a long or short-term rental.
Abundant native wildlife including whitetail deer, dove, and other animals native to the Texas Hill Country
There is one existing well on the property, providing water to all property improvements.
Onion Creek frontage, stretching 800 +/- feet, along the southern boundary of the property. Onion Creek is a beautiful feature holding water, during many parts of the year.
