Exceptional sanctuary with over 700 feet of waterfront with shallow rapids along the deepest end of the Blanco River just moments from charming and artsy downtown Wimberley.
Surrounded by groves of majestic Cypress, Cottonwood, Sycamore, and Pecan trees, this lushly landscaped estate offers three fishing ponds stocked with bass, catfish, tilapia, and perch, perfect for casting practice or catching a nice size bass for dinner. A mile of serene crushed granite walking trails winds through fields of native grasses and wildflowers that offer excellent bird watching and an annual migration path for the Monarch butterflies qualifying the property for a Wildlife tax Exemption.
The main house and guest house were designed by award-winning architect Val Glitsch. With exceptional finishes throughout, the thoughtful design garnered an AIA/Houston Architecture Honor Award in 1998. Exposed wood trusses, tree-columns, and local limestone enclose living spaces with continuous rows of casement windows and doors to direct views and breezes through the narrow house down to the river. Long overhangs and deep porches allow interior spaces to open to the outdoors, even in the rainy season, and expand the livability of the interior spaces. The main house has 2 bedrooms plus a four seasons room, 2 full and 1 half bathroom as well as a two-bedroom, two-bathroom guest house with a partial kitchen and laundry.
With 15 low-maintenance acres it offers the opportunity to expand on the property creating significant, additional value for the new owner. Enjoy it for year-round living or as an amazing country retreat. Put your personal stamp on this remarkable property, convenient to both Austin and San Antonio and interstate 35 and Ranch Road 12. Relax and enjoy the serenity only the Texas Hill Country can offer.
