Other Austin Properties farmhouse description

Hope Farms is a 5000 sq ft country estate home on a 54 acre river bottom farm and ranch. It is located 2 miles from Smithville, Texas, a historic railroad town with its own museum and a host of antique shops.

The town is noted for Sandra Bullock movie 'Hope Floats'. 'The Tree of Life' with Brad Pit and Shawn Penn filmed in Smithville.

The small town atmosphere is much like the movie, yet it only 35 minutes up Highway 71 to Austin's ABIA airport. Attractions in the area include the new Hyatt Regency at Lost Pines facility. There are four golf courses in the area, and two state parks. The farm setting is very unique as you can enjoy the breeze under the shade trees and watch and feed the longhorns, cows and their babies while they graze the fertile fields. It is never to hot with the cool swimming pool to enjoy. Their is also a 8' diameter hot tub in pool area.
