Dripping Springs house description

The vacation home is located approximately 12 miles northwest of Dripping Springs. It is situated on 19 heavily-wooded acres and it is surrounded by thousands of sparsely developed acreage. If you are looking for a remote retreat that reflects the beauty and splendor of God's creation, undisturbed by urban distractions, our home is just what you are looking for!

Our property features 700 feet of a large spring-fed creek that is perfect for swimming or meditating to the sound of the water as it rushes over the three-foot fall. Waterfront property is hard to find in Texas. Our property has 700 ft of creek. We own both sides of the creek so your privacy is assured. If you want a more public setting; we are close to Pedernales river and Hamilton Pool. Lake Travis is about 45 min away if you want to take a day trip to enjoy the lake.


Center of the Hill Country Wine Trail: Dripping Springs is at the center of Texas Hill Country wine trail. Enjoy the ability to go up the trail one way and down the other the next day. Our property is only minutes from the Mandola Estate Winery, Bell Springs Winery and Camp Lucy. Check out our website for Points of Interest for local attractions like the Creek Road Cafe or the famous Salt Lick.

Music lovers are about 20 minutes from the Nutty Brown Cafe & Amphitheater. It is always a nice surprise to drive by and learn that one of country's greats is going to be there that night for an impromptu jam session.

House has 3 bathrooms (2 showers and one bath). The 4 bedrooms have theme names: Bluebonet(1 queen size bed), Venetian (1 king size bed), Republic of Texas (1 full size bed) and English Garden Room (2 double beds and sitting area). The kitchen has been renovated with new cabinets, Top of the Line Kitchen Aid appliances (gas range, double oven, dual zoned wine chiller), refrigerator with water and ice from the freezer door, decorative Quimper tile back splash, marble island, stainless steel pot rack and granite counter tops.

The outside of the house features stone stairs, blacktop drive up the hill, flower gardens with sitting areas. Please visit our website for more pictures.

After the sun goes down enjoy a family movie on the TV/DVD/VCR player or do what we do, sit in a rocker on the front porch and enjoy the light show put on by mother nature every night in the forms of millions of stars and dozens of fire flies.

The fire circle out in front of the house is great for building campfires, roasting marshmallows, and reminiscing about the good old days.
