Property Description

Beautiful custom-built home with acreage for horses, small animals or another home. The Guadalupe River is 1/2 mile down the road;and a charming, artsy, shopping area is next to it. This lovely home was totally remodeled three years ago with materials for an allergic/chemically-sensitive person. It has stone-style tile throughout, with an open floorplan, and has 2 steps down into the living room and master bedroom. The master bedroom suite is a his and hers bathroom style with closets, built-ins,and facilities for each. Glass is across the entire back of the house and frames beautiful woodsy acreage. The second bedroom is on the opposite side of the house on a higher level, creating good privacy. The kitchen overlooks the living room, dining room, and yard, and has a small office attached. The house has a quality, in-good-taste feel and is sunny and cheerful. It was very well built. There are many large, expensive ranches on this charming country road. The adjoining 250 acre property is being developed into a quiet, Catholic retreat center. Antelopes and deer roam the property next door and across the road. Land has been cleared in the back for a guest house. Animals are allowed, as this is in the county--taxes are less also! Inside, this house feels very tranquil because of the lack of EMF and the clean air within. "It's just about as good as it gets for a person wanting to heal or protect their good health." Salud!
