Relaxing sounds of gurgling water tumbling over rocks from the nearby Pedernales River can easily be heard from this sprawling 26.99 acre estate.
The grounds of this well maintained oasis has 2 beautiful homes and several outdoor attractions; 2 arbors, a large pergola with extra seating space, a bottle shape fireplace, an additional fire pit, established landscaping and lush zoysia grass throughout main areas. The main house features a classic blend of Early German Settlement architecture featuring Sisterdale limestone rock set in a block-laid style of the original Sunday Haus settlers that came to Fredericksburg in 1846. The vintage ironwork balcony railings and oversized custom brass Bevolo (of New Orleans) lighting lanterns evoke a touch of New Orleans and add a graciousness to the property. Imagining croquet on the lawn, tossing bocce balls and throwing horseshoes while friends are sipping mimosas and bloody Mary’s on the upstairs gallery style balcony is easy to do!
Entering the foyer, stepping onto the polished travertine tile floor, come experience a sense of coolness and serenity. Upon further investigation multiple large substantial ceiling beams come into view as a living space emerges offering sunlight from 7 tall windows and a floor to ceiling limestone fireplace, the centerpiece of the large room. The adjacent newly remodeled kitchen is great competition however with its light and airy feel boasting 5 new WOLF appliances, a new Subzero refrigerator, new Miele dishwasher, an oversized Koehler farm sink, soft toned brushed brass plumbing fixtures and cabinet hardware from Pierce Hardware in Dallas, hand formed backsplash tiles from Italy, custom glass front cabinetry and durable quartz countertops. The view from the kitchen window is one of wonder with flowers blooming riotously from all angles. A powder bath and mud room leading to the double garage and work area is conveniently located just off the large gathering room.
The spacious master suite is located on the ground floor providing privacy and convenience. The master bath amenities include double sinks, a deep soak tub, an open walk in shower and a large walk in closet.
A custom carpeted staircase leads to the second floor where the architect (original plans available) should be commended. The second floor offers a spacious suite of a bed and bath, a huge family room, a bookcase lined study, 2 more spacious bedrooms connected by a Jack and Jill bath.
All spaces come with ample storage, and natural light, details in workmanship are evident in the baths, crown moldings throughout the home.
Not too far away, but far enough for privacy, the original home on this property is nestled. It is a 2 story structure with living quarters (3 bedrooms, newly renovated full bath, spacious kitchen and a large general area for dining and living) located upstairs with a full upper balcony and located downstairs is the drive through garage with 15 foot tall doors ( ideal space for tractor, mowers, golf carts, 4 wheelers, multiple cars) and a full bath. It also has a shady front porch and views the newly landscaped front yard that centers around a old oak tree with a rare “bending branch”. These trees are said to have their branches bent by the Indians to show each other which way to go through the countryside.
The remainder of the property, 21.99 acres, runs along the Pedernales River with numerous oak trees well as pecan trees and a small waterfall. This property has an agriculture exemption and a private well.
