Stunning Hill Country Show Place! The property has 2,700 feet of both sides of Bandera Creek that winds its way through the property, and has been dammed up to create a beautiful lake that is great for swimming and fishing. The gorgeous stately home sits on a hill overlooking Bandera Creek, and commands your attention as you drive up the road. As you walk in the house you are greeted with a floating stair case and 30+ foot ceilings. The large open living area has a wood ceiling and large rock fireplace. The rock used in the construction of the house was taken directly off the property. There is a large gourmet kitchen, huge master suite and large guest rooms. The outdoor living area is second to none. It has a full kitchen and overlooks the rock landscaped pool and bar area. For the horse lover, the ranch has a lighted indoor arena, six stall horse barn and an outdoor arena. The nine acre cultivated field is a great place to grow hay, or plant a food plot.
