This is the second time in my long Real Estate career that I have said to myself how and where do I start to explain how unique and amazing this property really is and how to explain the feeling to others how it took me back in time as I entered the property. Driving up the hill, the moment I saw this turn-of-the-century farm house with its inviting, long, covered front porch with rocking chairs, I was taken back in time to a slower and less stressful time of life.
When entering the front doors I realized I was looking back into history, where the old southern farm homes had what was called a dog trot (where both ends of the hallway were open where the dogs could walk in one end and out the other). The living quarters, bedrooms, kitchen and gathering rooms were located on each side of the dog trot. Even though the home has been updated and the dog trot has been enclosed, the home still retains all the charm and ambience of that era.
This amazing updated 2,564+/- sq. ft., 1 1/2 story home has three (3) bedrooms and three (3) full baths, metal roof, covered wood porches, French doors, Pine wood floors, Perimeter wood and hog fencing.
Entering the front French door to the left is the living room with ship lap walls and wood flooring. The kitchen is a cooks dream with its professional five (5) burner gas stove, microwave, commercial refrigerator, double sinks, center island with tile countertops and a bar area with wine refrigerator. Off the kitchen is the spacious utility room which features a pantry, freezer, tile flooring, lots of storage, folding space with tile countertops and a French door leading to the back covered porch and deck. To the right of the entrance is a guest bedroom with pine wood flooring and ship lap walls. The Master bedroom sits behind guest room and has a walk-in closet with built-in chest, gun closet, pine wood flooring and ship lap walls. The Master bath has Spanish tile flooring, a claw foot tub with shower, vanity with bowl sink and ship lap walls. The dog trot hallway leads you through a gallery of ship lap walls, a perfect place for displaying art. As you head down the hallway you come to a full bathroom with tile flooring, granite countertop vanity and a large walk-in shower. There are French doors at end of hallway that lead out to a covered wood porch and deck with unbelievable VIEWS.
Entering from the hallway to the upstairs of the home you will find a large open sitting/entertainment area with four (4)bunk beds easily sleeping six adults or children, wood flooring and beautiful vaulted wood beam ceilings. There is also a small bedroom with twin beds and a full bathroom with storage cabinet, tile floors and granite countertop vanity.
There is unbelievable views on this rolling 219+/- acres (per FCAD), as far as the eye can see. A tree lined seasonal creek meanders throughout the property allowing for great wildlife viewing. The seller has several concrete, low water crossings and two bridges across the creek for easy access to the other side. The property is perimeter fenced and is ag-exempt by wildlife exemption.
For hunters, the owner has designed several hunting areas with feeders throughout the property. If you prefer fishing there are two large ponds and a nine(9)+/- acre lake stocked with big mouth bass and perch. Each pond and lake have a fish feeder installed at the end of the pier and a feeding area for the fish. Did I mention it also being a good place to do a little duck hunting!
Additionally you will find a 1,600+/- sq. ft. metal building with 16ft. center height and two (2) 12ft. roll up doors with covered concrete entrance and exit. There is also an insulated, air conditioned enclosed storage/work area with half bath great for the little extras.
This is truly a bring your family, friends, church or corporate retreat, just come sit, enjoy peace and quite kinda place!
