This one of a kind Estate has been meticulously created from (2) 200 year old Dutch Hemlock barns from upstate New York that were disassembled by the Amish, shipped down to Texas, prepped and reassembled true to form using the original mortise & tenon with oak peg construction. The home sits on almost 23 gorgeous acres that includes a beautiful producing pecan orchard that leads to your large beach entry to the Colorado River. The Estate has everything you would want and attributes you were not even aware that are available. Every detail was well thought through and researched and for 2 1/2 years this home was built bringing the best technology and green building practices together to build this inviting and warm property that has every modern convenience. As you walk up to the home you will notice the expansive amount of limestone. This limestone is from the one layer that contains fossils, called Rattlesnake limestone. There is polished pieces on the fireplace so you can see the detail of the fossils. The home downstairs has mesquite floors chosen for their strength and durability and you will notice inlays in the entry and metal inlays in the powder bath. The floors upstairs are Hickory and all wood floors are plank and finished onsite.

The kitchen is a chef's dream with Wolf appliances including a 6 burner stove with grill, griddle, and double oven, microwave drawer, built-in steamer, and professional vent hood. There is also a Subzero refrigerator and freezer. Along with the 2 farmhouse sinks (one granite and one marble), there are two dishwashers and rare leathered (finish) granite that contains rubies. The wine cellar is 14'x4'x14' with chiller and is keypad restricted. The master bathroom has a Kohler digital DTV shower with rain panel, 2 shower heads, 6 body sprays, hand held sprayer and Kohler Hydrotherapy soaker tub with Chromatherapy. The master bedroom has a 2-story closet (clothes on first floor, shoes on second floor), private balcony, and a loft/office area. The laundry room has a shower, toilet, dog washing station and built in drying rack. The outdoor kitchen has a smoker pit, propane log lighter, grill, propane burner, stainless steel storage drawers, stainless dishwasher, stainless sink, under counter beverage fridge, and an under counter ice maker.

The estate also contains 1445 square feet of covered porches with living areas, full outdoor kitchen, fireplace and wood burning pizza oven. The master bedroom has its own private porch and balcony. There is also 1011 square feet of insulated garage space that houses the central vac system, an electric charging station for your electric car and one of two entries to the basement where all of the mechanicals are held. This home could be completely off grid with the addition of solar panels and battery storage as it has a rain water collection system that provides the potable water for the home. The water is collected off the roof and housed in a 20,000 gallon galvanized steel cistern with 2-stage filtration and UV sanitizer. Only 4-inches of rain fills the cistern. It also has a private well backup with water softener, although the sellers use the rainwater system for all of their water in the home including potable water. Continuing with the green building practices the home has three Geothermal HVAC units that are closed loops and located at the bottom of the pond. There are 3 Desuperheaters for domestic hot water, soft start, solar ready, electronic air filtration, 2 ERV units, air to air heat exchangers that discharge into the garage. This home is a SIP built home, which includes expanded polystyrene panels (not conventional construction), 6-inch panels on outer walls, 8-inch panels all roof areas yield an exceptionally high R-Factor. Additionally, every opening and seam has been foam filled. This structure is exceptionally tight and well insulated. The home has double pane, argon filled, low E windows. The metal roof is standing seam with no exposed fasteners. There is an underground propane tank, pre-plumbed for a future generator. The crawlspace/basement was built by bringing in dirt as this basement is not below normal grade. It is insulated and air conditioned with access from the garage and the wine cellar for storm/tornado protection. The foundation is an engineering feat with 250 yards of reinforced concrete, 52 bell-bottom piers (12'), 30 inch beams, 5" slab, 4"x12" shep tube columns beneath each Hemlock support post. In the wet areas you will notice natural stone tile and marble throughout and all sinks are stone. There are two staircases in the home and the staircase in the great room is Hemlock timbers.
