                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: We decided that we wanted to make Wimberley our home about 6 years ago. We had three boys in High School in Tomball, so it would still be a few years before we could move up here. We bought our first vacation rental property in Wimberley on the Blanco River ( The Great Escape ) in 2006. We bought our second rental property in Wimberley on 12 acres overlooking Wimberley Valley ( Sunset Ridge Escape ) in late 2007. During this time, we were looking for a place for us to move into, when we got our kids out of high school.

                      Why the Owner Chose Wimberley:
                      Phil and Peggy Collins bought this raw land in 2008 after looking for three years to find the best view in Hayes County. Rim Rock Lodge is absolutely the best view you can find in the county. We built this house for us to enjoy, so we kind of took things 'over the top' on this property. The view alone will make this worthwhile, but add in an incredible house, over 4,000 sq ft of rock work outside, a killer outdoor kitchen, furnishings that we have collected around the world, an entire package of outside and inside that makes this house an entertaining paradise!! All you will ever say is Wow! Please enjoy our home as much as we do.
