Description

Opulent seclusion at its very best in the heart of Texas with quick access to 3 International Airportsa true destination of comfort in the countryside. Nestled high above Cow House Creek in tree-covered, limestone bluffs that jet up from the creek bottom is a home that whispers, "welcome". Glass doorways and walls of windows open to a vantage point of the valley below and a creek with boulder formations perfect for scaling. Beyond the creek as far as the eye can see are sunrises and sunsets that pictures simply cannot express. The two-story custom home boasts over 3,300 sq. ft. of space that flows as beautifully in a cozy & quiet retreat as it does when hosting family and friends for a long, restful weekend away from it all in the country. The home is situated amongst mature trees on property that is part of an original land-patent settlement dating to 1875. When the land was settled, the only road was a stagecoach trail, which doubled as a mail route, traversing through the property along a limestone ledge from the small town of Pidcoke to the nearby community of King. Just below the homesite is the historical dry-stacked, rock fence that held the trail secure and kept livestock out of the creek-side crops until harvest. The landscape is varied with native wildflowers, forbs & grasses that host live oak, red oak, pecan, black walnut, wild plum, cedar, and redbud trees. Wildlife is plentiful with white-tailed deer, Mexican eagles, Rio Grande turkeys, dove, fox, squirrels, rabbits, songbirds & Monarch butterflies frequenting throughout the changing seasons. A shared property-owner easement provides access to the valley and the Cowhouse Creek below with perfect settings for hay-rides, picnics, & of course . . .swimming. Call Ranchman Properties Team today and discover new adventures awaiting you! Additional acreage available.
