Property description

This house is built in the regional 'Sunday Haus' style, and is nestled on a hillside offering expansive views of the Hill Country. Situated 4 miles from Main Street, and a short drive to shopping and restaurants, but offering the quiet solitude of the countryside.

The wrap-around porch provides a wonderful gathering place. The pond features a waterfall and attracts deer frequently. All bedrooms are spacious, with one on the first level, and a den and two additional bedrooms on the second level. Two of the bedrooms have queen size beds. The third, very large bedroom has a queen and two twin beds. The sizable kitchen is equipped with a gas stove, microwave oven, side by side fridge/freezer, and dishwasher. The first level has wood beamed ceilings and pine plank floors, while the upstairs has plush 'Berber' carpeting. A whole house water softener/filtration system has recently been added. Full size front load washer and dryer are available for guest use.

PLEASE NOTE;
*THE POND IS NOT FENCED, AND THEREFORE THIS PROPERTY IS NOT SUITABLE FOR UNSUPERVISED CHILDREN
*NO PETS
*NO BACHELORETTE PARTIES


Fredericksburg was settled by German immigrants, led by John O. Meusebach in 1846. Although the settlement was on Comanche Frontier, the Meusebach-Comanche Treaty established lasting peace. Many older buildings retain traditional German and frontier styles, with over 700 historical structures in the historic district alane. Many are on the National Register of Historic Places. German is still spoken on occasions, and old German customs are regularly observed. Schuetzen Fests (marksmanship), Oktoberfest, Weihnachten, and Kinderfest, to name a few.
Visitors are attracted by the scenic beauty,, European atmosphere, and historic landmarks. Fredericksburg is home to the Pacific War Museum, and birthplace of Fleet Adm. Chester W. Nimitz, Commander in Chief of the Pacific Fleet during World War II.
