Type:Ranches and Farms, Residential: Homes with Acreage
This custom country home sits atop a ridge with miles of unspoiled views. The property has 180 feet of elevation change! The house is a very comfortable, well-appointed 2 story home with separate living and bedroom areas.
The kitchen in this home is a smart womans dream. All appliances are stainless steel Kitchen-aid. There is a built in convection micro-wave, regular convection oven and warmer drawer under that. A four burner gas cook-top with griddle and vent-a-hood are located right beneath the bar so the chef is never left out of the conversation! Silestone counter-tops, granite composite double sink, roll-out drawers, R O system, water softener and my favoritea window over the sink!
This is a well built, low maintenance home. Winter electric bills are less than $60.00 and summer is less than $160.00. It is on a slab foundation, framed with red iron, 2 x 6 beams, and metal roof. This makes for a rock solid, homogeneous building. The walls have 6 of blown in insulation that seals all potential air leaks while the ceiling has 12 of blown insulation. All wood has been treated with fire and retardant. The concrete beams of this home are on solid bedrock.
Upstairs off the great room is a 40 x 20 composite deck, so it is low maintenance! A perfect place to set up a grill, and if you prefer, a gas grill. There is a hook-up already there for you. With its own HVAC unit, the upstairs is an open floor plan. Think lodge style living. Arrange your furniture however you wish. Make it all bedroom, separate it into living room/bedroom. Whatever works for you is the plan! A full bath, a large walk-in closet, a kitchen sink, range connections, and a wood burning stove are what you will find upstairs. Gorgeous maple wood flooring, interior walls of 100 year old long leaf pine from old barnwood, vinyl double paned windows, ceiling fans, everything you need to be comfy and cozy. Walk out the door and find the view spectacular enough to grace a calendar.
Every country home needs a workshop. This home has a 30 x 40 shop attached to the home. Use it as a garage, a workshop or both. There are four 12 foot roll up doors, cement floors, it is insulated and has a stainless steel sink as is necessary in any good workshop.
Around the home is a great garden area, (with game fence to protect the garden) and a recreational area. Landscaping around the home consists of an herb garden and a vegetable garden. A small greenhouse is a big advantage when winter rolls in. The front yard has a sprinkler system, while drip irrigation is installed in other places. Some fruit trees have been planted including peach, pear & plum. There are gutters with downspouts for the purpose of rainwater harvesting.
A Bosch tankless water heater is energy efficient and practical. To convey with the sale are all the kitchen appliances. Window coverings are plantation blinds which will convey. Water is provided by Richland Springs Water District. Almost all fencing is less than 7 years old and is in very good condition.
This country estate is well set up for recreation and for hunting. This acreage is well wooded with live oak, mesquite, and post oak. It also has native brush, including lots of quality deer browse such as Mexican buckeye and shin oak. A good stock tank that holds water like a jug is stocked with catfish, perch and minnows. So you have deer hunting, bird hunting, and fishing all on one place. And this is a very gamey area, with turkeys, waterfowl, dove, deer, and many other wildlife species to be watched from the deck high above the ranchland below.
