Sitting on sixty three acres this wonderful home offers a comfortable yet elegant home away from home. It is a great property to walk and enjoy the wildlife and resident horses or just sit on the porch and visit with family and friends. Plus it located only a short distance from Luckenbach and the wineries. The 483 Ranch is a working ranch with horses and farming projects going on during the week. Your homeowner does have a dog, but both the dog and homeowner will respect their guests’ privacy.
Inside the three bedroom two bath house you will find a large foyer with an array of art, mostly horse and hill country landscape paintings, on the wall and a formal dining area with an elegant table (not currently being used) and buffet decorated to perfection. The spacious living room offers a leather sofa and two comfy overstuffed chairs placed to enjoy the large television (dish satellite) over the wood burning fireplace. The horse picture behind the leather sofa demonstrates what a horse lover your hostess is. Open to the living room is a large kitchen, which is fully equipped. A table seating eight people is also found in this awesome room.
Three bedrooms are found in the house. The master bedroom has a handsome black bed with white comforter and fluffy pillows. The adjacent bathroom is both spacious and beautiful with its tile walls, floor and shower. Two sinks make getting dressed much easier for those hurried moments. A wrought iron scroll headboard is in the queen bedroom topped with soft neutral colors. The third bedroom has a rustic post bed with plaid coverings. A large whirlpool tub is in the second bathroom along with a beautiful black wood vanity.
The back yard has a great porch for visiting and includes comfortable Adirondack chairs. A fire pit is also found in the back yard, but cannot be used during the drought. Although your homeowner does have an apartment in the barn behind the house, I know you will find your privacy respected at all times.
