                                  Year Purchased: 2009

                                  About the owner: Hershel is a commercial construction project manager who loves to work on his land, restore classic cars, juke boxes, and coke machines. He loves cooking catfish and craw fish for large groups! While Hershel was building the house, Becky went back to school and received her PhD and Executive Coaching certification. They both love spending time with their family and four dogs.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Cedar Creek:
                                  Hershel used his construction experience to build their dream house. They began hosting events for their friends and family which led to the idea of sharing the house with others. Their son and his wife were married down by the pond in a beautiful outdoor wedding.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                                  We chose this land because it was a country setting with plenty of privacy but in close proximity to Austin, San Antonio, Houston, and outlet mall shopping San Marcos.
