Situated on 11.8 relaxing, spacious acres is this 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath, two story, brick home waiting for you. It sits high above Bandera Creek with a view of historic Polly Peak and the surrounding countryside, making a perfect blend of indoor and outdoor living. The home was completely renovated in 2017. Features include a long, paved driveway, side, back, and front patios, 3 living areas, one of which has walls of windows. There are 2 fireplaces, a peninsula kitchen with custom Shaker style cabinets and custom concrete counter tops, a huge walk-in pantry with tons of storage, and a small appliance garage/pantry off the kitchen. Enjoy your morning coffee in the dining room where sliding glass doors allow views of your handiwork in the high fenced garden and activities of your chosen farm animals. The primary bedroom is downstairs along with another bedroom that could be utilized as anything you need or can imagine. After being a bedroom for several years, it became an art studio! The primary bedroom has his and hers walk-in closets and an ensuite, spa-like bath with step-in shower and jacuzzi tub. The 3rd living area, which used to be a "Sunroom," has been fully integrated into the square footage of the home, making a total of 3984 square feet. In that room, natural light is cool and comfortable. Upstairs are two more bedrooms and a full bath with a step-in shower that was remodeled in September 2023. Exterior and interior paint was refreshed in August 2023. There's a greenhouse and a 4-bay workshop to boot, both with power. Not far from the house is a totally rebuilt, antique guest cottage that has been host to friends and loved ones since August 2022. The studio sized cottage boasts a stained-glass window, sleeping and sitting areas, custom cabinets, retro-style appliances and decor, cooktop, microwave, covered wrap-around porch on 2 sides, shower and toilet. The guest cottage could be income producing with the addition of its own septic system. Property boundaries are well defined with iron and ranch fencing on 3 sides. 2018 brought new fences on the barnyard, on two sides of the pasture, and all new gates. Chickens are currently housed in a complete poultry enclosure with sides and top for protection. The land slopes gently down to the East boundary which is 760 feet of Bandera Creek! At the creek, everyone will enjoy the bluff, campsite with fire pit, fishing, wading, and wooded areas. An abundance of wildlife roams the property including armadillo, whitetail, Axis deer and more. High speed fiber internet is available with a choice of 3 speeds through Bandera Electric Coop. All original single pane aluminum windows were replaced in May 2022 and a new roof took residence in 2019. Inside the well house, the pressure tank was replaced after the big freeze of 2021. In addition, the property is in the direct path of the upcoming Fall Annular Eclipse and the April 2024 total eclipse. This property offers all the freshness of the country with the convenience of the city nearby. It's just close enough to town but far enough from light pollution that stargazing is at a premium. Located approximately 1 hour from the San Antonio International Airport, 45 minutes to the Medical Center, 30 minutes to Boerne, Kerrville and Hondo. Less than 5 minutes to downtown Bandera, the Cowboy Capital of the World, where the fun never sets! Plenty of shopping, a rich nightlife with name entertainment, eateries, the Medina River, volunteer opportunities, events, churches, schools and more!
