PRICE REDUCED!! This is an amazing buy on an exclusive, one-of-a-kind completely private country home on 16 acres of Austin County hardwood forest and rolling, sandy meadows.
The home is a 4,000 sq. ft. custom-designed Arts & Crafts-style Texas ranch house, covered in Austin limestone. It features an additional 2,000 sq. ft. of wide, covered porches, looking out over trees and meadows. The land is a triangle surrounded on two sides by the historic 7IL Ranch, with mile Mill Creek Rd. frontage. Enter across a small creek, through hardwood trees and up the 700 drive to the house. The house and 8 cleared acres cannot be seen from the road. The remainder of the property is natural, untouched hardwood forest, providing privacy and wooded walking or riding trails, with plenty of room for development.
Located about halfway between Cat Spring and Bellville, the county seat, this environmentally friendly home is approximately 45 minutes from Houston Energy Corridor and about one hour away from the Galleria.
The only adjoining property is the historic 1,150 Acre 7IL RANCH with over 40 miles of well-managed riding trails, stables and horse riding facilities. Install a gate on either side to provide easy access for riding out onto the 7ILs open or shady trails. The ranch provides long-term protection from any other nearby future development.
The home was built with special framing, redwood sill-plates and redwood porch rails. The Arts & Crafts-style woodwork throughout the house was hand-built on-site with custom hardware. The ceramic tiled first floor features the main indoor living spaces, plus a master bedroom suite with two very large walk-in closets, one smaller closet and hallway built-ins featuring drawers and cabinets. The master hall leads to a spacious porcelain-tiled master bath featuring a walk-in shower, whirlpool tub and a vanity with two sinks.
First floor living areas include a gracious entry hall opening into the comfortable front living room with bay windows looking onto the front and side porches. From the living room towards the back is a 19 x 25 dining and family room, with plenty of light and sweeping views in three directions. The substantial limestone fireplace with raised hearth completes this warm, inviting space.
The sizable kitchen, with solid oak flooring and walk-in pantry, has plenty of room for the familys kitchen table or an island. Custom kitchen cabinetry includes a built-in desk / work area.
A back hallway, laundry room with built-in utility sink, counter and cabinets, and a corner office complete the first floor of this outstanding design.
The upstairs has solid oak flooring, ceramic tile bathroom and two generous bedrooms with ample closet space. The 300 sq. ft. loft area with a large closet makes a great media or game room for the children, and could easily be a 4th bedroom. A linen closet and the air-conditioned 12 x 15 tiled storage room, with access to additional floored attic storage spaces, complete the upstairs.
This all-electric home includes a deep water well, with treatment & filtration systems, and a Generac whole house emergency generator with dedicated propane supply.
