Property Description 2 large king bedroom 2 baths on 172 acres with 1 mile of river frontage
Experience the evolution of vacation travel during these uncertain Covid-19 times - enjoy stress-free country living at this one-of-a-kind Texas Hill Country home. Situated among centuries-old live oaks on a mile of San Gabriel River frontage, 172 acres of working farmland, and full of history. This Georgetown ranch is sure to captivate the whole group with its stunning views, terraced patios and original charm.
Whether you are visiting for a staycation, flexcation, or simply want to "work-from-home" in a peaceful rural setting, you will enjoy high speed Internet. An Internet company has put up a 130' tower in our top pasture and provides Internet service to all of the houses on the farm, as well as their other customers. We know this is an important feature for those looking to work from home.
CLEANING: We have always had a stringent cleaning protocol in place, as evidenced by the many comments on cleanliness in our reviews. We have now taken it up a notch in order to keep ourselves and our guests as safe as possible. We are leaving a 28-53 hour window between stays. We are cleaning, disinfecting, then sanitizing all high-touch areas. We have self check-in and self check-out, so you do not have to come in contact with anyone during your visit if you do not wish to do so.
Throughout this thoughtfully designed home, you’ll marvel at unique touches that speak to its special appeal. From the hand-laid stone pulled from the river, to the 5-tiered waterfall out back. You’ll even find framed reproductions of art painted by previous owner and artist C.P. Montague (who happened to be one of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s favorites) decorating the walls.
The open living area offers plenty of air conditioned space to catch up with friends, while the gourmet kitchen provides all you need to prep family-style meals, including a dishwasher for easy clean-up. Curl up with a book by the wood-burning fireplace (wood provided), host family movie night on the 62” flat screen smart TV, or stream your favorite show through high speed internet, Wi-Fi on your devices or the smart TV. The 130' internet tower is in our top pasture, so you get very good internet!
Two luxurious king suites come complete with light-filled sitting rooms and beautiful linens, while a queen sleeper sofa in the living alcove with comfy bedding creates room for up to 6 travelers. A 22" self-inflatable air mattress is available and suitable for children. If you brought the little one, a Pack-n-play and high chair are available too.
Two baths, one with a walk-in shower, the other with a square soaking tub offers a convenient way to share space. A front-load washer and dryer helps keep packing light.and addition
An entertainer’s paradise lies just outside! Relax with a glass of wine on multi-level terraced patios while listening to the soothing cascading waterfall, or the fountain in the pond below. Fire up the charcoal grill and large smoker and dine alfresco with the whole group. At dusk, a fire pit awaits for story swapping, S’mores making, and stargazing.
Just 10 minutes down the road is historic Georgetown, with "The Most Beautiful Town Square" in Texas", museums and live music. Wolf Ranch in Georgetown is a destination shoppers delight; shopping at IKEA and the outlet mall is just 20 minutes away; and you’ll be in the heart of Austin in 30 minutes. Magnolia and the Silos in Waco are just 75 minutes from the farm.
Or stay close to home and find great fishing and tubing in the San Gabriel River, along with 172 acres for hiking and birding. Be sure to check out our farm tour where the whole family can learn about local fossils, search for arrowheads, engage with the animals, gather eggs, or take tractor rides. Don’t forget your pets! Open acres of leash-free space are a dog’s dream come true.
Ditch the city life and crowds for the serenity of the Texas Hill Country countryside and come see what it’s like to live on a working farm and explore a living museum!
