LA BONNE VIE RANCH is being offered as approximately 82.5 acres (subject to a new survey) which is being carved from the heart of 210 acres of prime SW Gillespie County gently rolling terrain with fertile soils, a variety of tree cover with a long list of amenities which a discriminating buyer and their guests will admire and utilize for many years to come.
AS YOU ARRIVE at the entrance of the ranch, although you are on a county road and about to cross a cattle guard with a massive masonry wall on either side, one is struck with the impression that you are about to enter private estate lacking the gate. Once past that main entrance, another smaller version appears and welcomes you to lush landscaping which surrounds the home and frames your approach to the residence.
AT THE CENTERPIECE of this showcase property, tucked away near the dead end of that paved county road is this amazing, sprawling homestead which was designed like a piece of fine art and built around a pioneer, limestone 1800s home which was taken down to only some walls which to this day provide the charm of early Fredericksburg. With the addition of a soaring 20 ceiling in the greatroom, a spiral masonry stairway to the upstairs library and a number of strategically placed windows showcasing captivating views from within, will have you short of breath.
THE OPEN floorplan of the home will accommodate a large number of guests, not to mention that the dining room will currently seat 12-14 guests. And just of the kitchen is a smaller dining area to one side and the covered outdoor grilling area on the other. The temperature controlled wine cellar is also accessed from the kitchen.
OTHER ENTERTAINMENT areas include several outdoor patio areas on the north and south side of the home along with a large patio off the master suite to the east. Then you also have the dining terrace on the east side of the home which is complete with fireplace and another grill area where you hear the gushing sounds from the fountain just down the way.
GUESTS that come to visit will have a couple of options for their stay. Many of the owners guests are avid RVers, so they built a covered facility with complete hookups that will accommodate several RVs. Then there is also the nearby guesthouse which is located atop a two stall horse barn complete with tack and feed room and decorated in a western motif and has some outstanding views in all directions.
IT IS NOT EVERY DAY you find a property that has your very own private runway and hangar. We have 2,000 of paved runway here and if you like, there is ample room to park near the front door.
ON EITHER SIDE of the runway are large open meadow areas comprised of rich soils which have been identified by Texas A & M Universitys Viticulture department as superior vineyard sites..vineyard sites dont get much better than that in the Hill Country.
THIS portion of La Bonne Vie Ranch is being offer at a listing price of 2,250,000 and is shown by appointment only.
ALSO AVAILABLE IS an option to add an additional 25.7 acres to the west of the home and Pfiester Rd. for. Included in that package is a stunning, park-like setting which features regulation skeet and trap thrown from structures that house the automatic, remote controlled throwers and the range overlooks a pond. Naturally there is a cantina ideal for severing your guests and massive stand-at tables for dining.
BECAUSE the current owner is an avid bird hunter, he is required to have some fine, well trained dogs which are kept in a first class kennel facility near the shooting range. A water well is located on this tract which serves the kennel and cantina.
IN THE EVENT the purchaser of the main home elects not to add this tract to their purchase, this parcel will be available after the close on the main home for 650,000.
