Property description

This bright & cheerful, newly remodeled farmhouse is nestled among large oak trees atop a hill with wonderful views and gently blowing breezes.
With enchanting views of the rolling hills, a wrap-around front porch on 3 sides, a large back deck, patio off the sunroom, newly installed in ground swimming pool w/waterfall, a spring fed pond with pier & pavilion, large, barbecue pit, & 3 zoned central units to keep you comfortable, you’ll never want to leave as many of our guests tell us! If you do want to sightsee or shop, it’s a short drive to most everything as we are located between Brenham, Round Top, & Bellville, all known for great antique shopping & scrumptious local restaurants. Stay with us for Antiques Week, Scarecrow festival, during Bluebonnet season, just any time you need a lovely, relaxing getaway! It's the perfect place for a family gathering during the holiday season!

Outside you can barbecue, bike ride, hike around, take a dip in the pool, or settle in Skip’s favorite place-the hammock under the tree! A variety of wildlife will delight you – rabbits in the flower beds in the morning, barn-swallows, woodpeckers, cardinals, owls & deer.
This spacious farmhouse allows for gathering together with family & friends, meeting to do projects or finding a quiet place of your own with a good book. The well- appointed country kitchen with bead board cabinets, wolf stove, 2 farmhouse sinks & 11 foot island is a favorite spot. The family room has a large fireplace, pull-down movie screen, dvd's, games, game table, & comfortable sofas & rockers. Sleep well on one of 3 King beds, one queen bed & 3 twins as well as a sleeper sofa. High quality mattresses and linens.

Looking for a place a bit smaller- ask about our Cottage which rents at a lower rate!

Enjoy the warmth and joys of Christmas in the farmhouse by the fully decorated fireplace mantle, a large Christmas tree adorned with lights and ornaments, and lights on the porch. We have a lovely Lennox Christmas tablecloth, a punch bowl, and a lovely table setting with red chargers, Santa Salt & Pepper shakers and more are ready for you to enjoy a lovely holiday season with us.

A perfect place for Thanksgiving! The dining table has two leaves and allows for lots of seating. We have platters, serving pieces, serveware, a Thanksgiving tablecoth, centerpiece, chafing dishes, and decorations. There is a second fridge in the sunroom because one always needs extra storage during the holidays. There is a charming breakfast room table that also seats 6.

Area attractions: Enjoy the wineries -Pleasant HIll Winery is just down the road, Antiques shopping in Brenham, Round Top & the surrounding areas, Bluebell Creamery hopefully will be opening soon, Live Music at the Kenney Store, & yummy local eateries. Huge HEB & Walmart nearby. Enjoy Starbuck's right past Chili's which is in front of Home Depot at the corner of highway 36 and 290.
Do it all or do nothing at all but do come & enjoy! We’d love to have you!
Some history:
In the 1800's, the folks who owned it did cotton farming. It was later purchased by a doctor who took two old houses and sistered them together. Original ceilings still remain in the dining room, living room and grand hall.
Years later, a lovely gentleman who was a structural engineer bought it and remodeled it, adding on two bedrooms with private bathrooms.
After looking for several years for just such a place, we knew we had found it the moment we walked on the land. We fell in love with the whole place & you will, too! We did some updating ourselves by taking in the large utility room adjacent to the kitchen, thus allowing us to create a huge country kitchen with 11 foot pine top island for family and friends to gather and keep the cook company. We added two farmhouse sinks and a stove any chef would be proud of as well as the updated dishwasher, refrigerator with ice maker, and a microwave. Then came a luxury bathroom with air- jetted tub in the master suite. A sitting room was created in the master suite from what was once an enclosed porch. Over the last few years, we added a stone fireplace in the large family room, enlarged the back deck, and added a 20 X 20 pavilion down by the spring fed pond.
Do come! You’ll love it!

Owner info

About the owner: Skip and I traveled all over looking for a beautiful setting to retire to one day. We fell in love with this place and feel blessed to share it with others.

Why the Owner Chose Brenham:
It feels so calm & peaceful here. A great place to get away from the city. But although it's out in the country, it is easy to get to and from town and HEB in Brenham is less than 10 minutes away! There's even a Starbucks right off 290 & 36 by Walmart.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
We love the gracious feel of the farmhouse & it's setting among large oak trees. The 11' island in the kitchen is a great place to gather while you cook on the Wolf stove. Outdoor areas to relax are plentiful and there is usually a lovely breeze to enjoy. Our 5 acre pond is spring fed and has had plenty of water even during the worst of the drought. Now we have an in-ground pool that really is great in the summer heat!
