Picture this: a historic, beautiful country home – a place to gather, relax, have fun, and create memories – all within a 10 minute drive from the vibrant and popular Hill Country town of Fredericksburg, Texas. Located in the ETJ on the west side of town, these thirty-six acres are filled with recreational opportunities galore! Perennial Barons Creek creates the southern boundary of this homestead, which also contains a lake, pond and dam. Imagine the potential tubing and paddle-boarding — not to mention the fishing! Horse lovers will rejoice as well to find a large fenced pasture.
The main home of this estate is truly a beauty, and you can tell it has been cherished and maintained over the years. Lovingly-restored from the 1850’s, this historic rock home has grown over time, and can accommodate the largest of families (or several families)! An old rock barn was restored and converted to a separate guest house, so visitors will have a sense of privacy when desired, even among all the potential for activity. This privacy also extends to two Sunday-haus style cabins residing nearby on the premises. Built in 2003-2004, they’re outfitted with kitchens, living spaces and comfortable sleeping quarters for additional guests, and have great views of the expansive property. The grounds are dotted with grand Live Oaks, providing natural habitat as well as much-coveted shade. Sit and listen to the songbirds, watch for deer coming to feed by the water, and enjoy the calming trickle of the waterfall feature on one of the many patios. The compound also includes a maintained in-ground swimming pool, to be enjoyed by all who stay there. The existing strong water well, cistern, septic system, electricity and natural gas on site will continue to provide the new owners with modern comforts in a rural setting.
From hosting family reunions, to inviting friends over for a swim and a picnic or a leisure horse ride, to relaxing in the peace and quiet of your own thirty-six acres of Hill Country paradise, this place is meant to be someone’s home. It’s meant to be shared, cherished, and enjoyed for many years to come. Come see for yourself! Viewing by appointment only.
