This secluded custom-built Hill Country Home & Cabin are located on a wooded 1-acre lot (1505 Edwards Blvd., New Braunfels 78132), just 1/2 Mile upstream from the Historic Gruene District, on a 140-foot span of the Guadalupe Riverbank.

Over 100 feet of deck/patio space are available with the large upstairs deck, and an equally large downstairs patio, both of which overlook the Guadalupe River with an unobstructed view of the opposing riverbank and undeveloped limestone cliffs. The yard is shaded by huge Cypress and Pecan trees, and is perfect for outdoor gatherings, especially with the group seating areas and the large stone fire ring.

The upper level includes two bedrooms, the huge Great Room, the large fully furnished kitchen, and the Recreation/Game Room. The large Master Bedroom has a private full Bathroom, and will accommodate up to 4, with the King-Size bed, and 2-Twin beds in the form of a pop-up Trundle. The second upstairs bedroom has a Queen-size bed. The Great Room has vast expanses of River Views, and is open to the kitchen containing the shared fireplace. Additionally, 2 can be accommodated in the Great Room, by using 2 large sofas as sleepers.

The downstairs has 3 bedrooms. 2 of the bedrooms will accommodate up to 3, each with a King-Size Bed and a pop-up Trundle. These also have private full bathrooms, and sweeping views of the River. The center downstairs bedroom will accommodate up to 4, with 2-Bunk Beds, and 2-Twin beds in the form of a pop-up Trundle.

The detached Rustic Cabin can accommodate 2, with a King-Size Bed and a private full bathroom. The cabin also has it's own private deck, 10-foot rustic cedar-stay privacy fence, seating areas, a porch-swing, and it's own private River View and wooded yard.
