Just 25 minutes from Fredericksburg, the “New Napa Valley” according to Southern Living magazine, this ranch blends the old with the new in a way that maximizes the spectacular views, deep loamy soil, live water and massive live oaks on the property.
The remains of the original, early 1900s homestead sit adjacent to the creek, and steps have been taken to safely preserve as much of it as possible. Just looking at the setting, you can easily imagine what life might have been like back then.
But the real show-stopper here is the three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath Hill Country soft contemporary residence. It’s obvious from the moment you step through the glass-pivot front door, with its adjacent floor-to-ceiling windows, and see right through the back porch to the 30-mile views, that this home is truly unique. Every detail was carefully considered to maximize the natural beauty of the surroundings while providing unparalleled beauty, comfort and efficiency.
Some of the structural highlights of the home include Shou Sugi Ban cypress on both exterior and interior beams that requires virtually no maintenance and is both insect- and burn-resistant, 36” x 36” Italian cement tile set on Schluter membrane, cement wall tile in the bathroom walls, German-manufactured wood floor, Icynene spray foam insulation and engineered 2” x 6” stud walls throughout. The home’s interior features vaulted ceilings, massive walkway lintels, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, Leviton lighting, custom walnut doors and cabinetry, exquisite German-operation valves in the appliances and a custom exhaust system in the kitchen.
If it’s the quiet of the Hill Country you crave, and a luxurious modern home you need, look no further.
