French Colonial Equestrian 2 home Estate Nestled in the Texas Hill Country
Situated on 55 gorgeous hill country acres, this property presents a stunning impression. Consisting of Main House (8/5) and Guest House (2/2) with custom moldings, soaring ceilings and rich hardwood floors are embellished by designer lighting fixtures and massive walls of arch-topped windows. Living areas are bright and spacious. The atmosphere is casual elegance.
Glimpses of the impressive facade of the main house can be seen through the private wrought-iron entry gate. Classic dormers and a full-length French balcony capture the eye and hold it, all the way down the tree-lined circular drive. One is greeted in the foyer by custom fluted door moldings, tall ceilings and a graceful staircase with iron-spindle balusters. Centered by a broad fireplace and built-in cabinetry, the handsome family room features a brilliant stand of windows that offer tranquil views of the backyard landscape and pool. The adjacent formal dining room is accented by an arched window with plantation shutters and an iron chandelier that suspends from a 10’ ceiling.
Efficient and well-equipped, the island chef’s kitchen features custom floors, quarts tops, a pantry and a full array of modern stainless-steel appliances that includes dual ovens, a beverage cooler and a new six-burner gas stove. A built-in china cabinet fills an entire wall in the sun-filled breakfast room which also enjoys relaxing views of the backyard and pool.
Bright with natural sunlight, the private master suite is a quiet escape from the main living area. The warm bed chamber is crowned by a deep tray ceiling and has private access to the covered patio, deck and pool. The spa-quality master bath touts custom flooring, quartz tops, dual vanities, a jet tub, frame less glass shower and an enormous walk-in closet with built-in drawer stacks. The main floor also holds a second guest bedroom. A secondary staircase located by the kitchen leads up to another bedroom and a bonus room that has 2 Queen beds with a separate bedroom off of it. The remaining upstairs four bedrooms of the main house, as well as another bonus room with a work station, are accessed by way of the main staircase in the foyer.
In addition to the main house there is a guest house with a covered front porch with views of the backyard, pool and cabana. The guest house has a sizable living room, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and a full kitchen. A covered breezeway separates the guest house from an immense climate controlled 3060' , event space for rent separately.
The home’s sprawling park-like grounds are punctuated with hardwood, elm and native oak trees. Water-efficient plants and child-safe wrought-iron fencing surround a pool with a hot tub and a poolside cabana with twin wide-screen TV’s. Wood-burning fire pit with seating for 10.
