                      Why the Owner Chose Dripping Springs:
                      Close proximity to Austin, outstanding live water (creek), dramatic elevation changes, beautiful houses, lovely pool and hot spa, lighted tennis/basketball court and other amenities. Paul says, 'when we first previewed the property, it was mostly just for fun because it was too expensive and too 'fancy' for us, but when we walked through the place, crossed the flowing creek and drove up to the overlook on the hill, it took our breath away. We then partnered with our family and found a way to buy it. We are so glad we did!'

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Unparalleled natural beauty, comfortable accommodations, a multitude of things to do for both children and adults, and quick convenience to Austin and San Antonio!
