This is beautiful rolling land with a unique country home conveniently located between Houston and Austin on a paved county road 10 minutes from Brenham. Driving time to the Austin or Houston airport is approximately 90 minutes. The home and large barn are on a high hill with scenic views overlooking a wooded creek and a beautiful lake that is one of the distinguishing characteristics of the property. The property maintains its agricultural exemption and is well outfitted for cattle and equestrian use or hay production. The rock house retains many of the charming antique features of the original farmhouse including wood floors, extra high ceilings, and trim constructed from native oak, pecan, and cedar trees grown on the property. The expansive living room of the home has beautiful long leaf pine floors and a wood ceiling. The living room extends into the kitchen and dining area past a rock wall and wood burning stove with a rock enclosure and chimney. The kitchen has granite countertops and an attractive beamed wood ceiling. The adjoining dining area accommodates a large dining table for family gatherings. Off of the kitchen there is a large utility room with a wet bar, refrigerator, and extensive storage cabinets. The principal bedroom has multiple windows, wood flooring, and a large in-suite bathroom with double sinks, shower, and whirlpool bathtub with a gorgeous view of a large live oak tree. Adjoining the principal bedroom is a spacious private office with built in wood cabinets and desk tops constructed from wood milled on the property. The office features a huge picture window overlooking the garden and countryside. The house includes two distinctive guest bedrooms with wood floors and ceilings. There are three bedrooms downstairs with baths and a large dormitory style sleeping quarters and playroom upstairs for the kids. The outside of the home has a wrap around porch with scenic views, ideal for your morning coffee and evening beverage. There is a magnificent rock paved patio with an outdoor kitchen, fireplace, and pizza oven—a great place for entertaining family and guests. The large metal barn on the property has a well-equipped shop, an extensive wood working area with a vacuum system, and a huge area for storing tractors, farm equipment, or other toys. Adjacent and attached to the barn are working pens and catch pens for cattle or equestrian service. There is a large apartment with a bathroom on the second story above the barn that serves as a great guest quarters. For the project oriented hobby and maintenance inclined, this barn is a huge asset. The rolling land features wooded and open areas with scenic views and many old live oak trees. There is a lake, a two acre pond, one smaller pond, and two wooded creeks. Because of the water, the views, the woods, and large live oaks, this is some of the most beautiful land in the area.
