The 19th century limestone home sits in the shade of a stately, beautiful old live oak and is surrounded by lush gardens, nestled on rolling hills south of Fredericksburg. Well known San Antonio, Tx based architect, Don McDonald was commissioned to restore the original buildings in the manner which the German settlers originally crafted the 1880s homestead. The finished restoration represents a compound of early Texas pioneer structures where the past gracefully intertwines with the present.
The stately main home features a large formal entry hall, two front parlors and a rustic dining room/kitchen with exposed limestone walls and limestone flooring. The Sub-Zero unit is built in to the corner of the dining/kitchen and there is also a commercial gas range. The scullery is located off the dining/kitchen and houses the sink, dishwasher and washer/dryer. The upstairs features the master bedroom, bathroom, second bedroom and a great room which can be used as a bunk room. The bath tower addition to the main home is connected by a large screened porch and includes a sleeping porch and full bath.
Additionally the property offers a guest cottage with half bath in the restored smoke house. The extensive gardens are stunning and the pastoral views of the nearby hills are inspiring. This special property is located off of State Highway 16 between Fredericksburg and Kerrville and is convenient to San Antonio and Austin.
