New Braunfels house description

Enjoy a little bit of country and history located in the heart of our city, one mile from downtown New Braunfels and one mile from Gruene, Texas. The first home built by Ernst and Antoinette Gruene in 1857 still exists in a secluded, farm-like setting.

Relax among giant oak trees and refreshing breezes. Country comes alive as you make memories around the large campfire. Quietly gaze at the open sky, with silence broken only by the whistle of the distant train and sounds of the native wildlife.

HOUSE AND CABIN ARE AVAILABLE INDEPENDENTLY OR TOGETHER. RESERVATION CALENDAR MAY NOT REFLECT ACTUAL AVAILABILITY FOR RENTAL OF COTTAGE UNLESS IT IS BEING RENTED WITH THE MAIN HOUSE. PLEASE CALL OR E-MAIL.

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About: My family and I have been living in New Braunfels since 1978. My husband and I have five grown children, and three grandchildren. We enjoy owning the original Gruene Estate and look forward to continuing their legacy.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Gruene Estate is truely a unique property. We bought the house because of its charm, history, and ideal location. The main house was built by the Gruene family in 1856 and we have tried very hard to maintain it's original form. Set on 15 acres, it is one of the last areas in the town of New Braunfels and Gruene that is undeveloped. It's ideal location allows people to be in Gruene, New Braunfels or Schlitterbahn in less then 5 minutes. Families love the property because of the farm like setting. In the spring we grow and harvest hay. In addition, we have two extremely friendly longhorns and a horse that you can feed from hand. Most nights, deer come to the back of the house and eat from the deer feeder.
