Property description

Relax and enjoy our charming cottage located just one mile from Bobcat Stadium and 5 minutes from Texas State University and the crystal clear San Marcos River. We are nestled on a three acre hilltop within a quiet gated community. Hilltop Sunset Cottage is filled with antiques and can accommodate up to six guests. It boasts 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, dining room with wood burning fireplace, living room, large screened-in porch and multiple outdoor living areas with breath-taking sunset views. Kitchen features a new convection/traditional electric stove, colorful Fiestaware, and anything else a chef might need! Sip your coffee on the shady front porch in the Adarondack chairs or wooden swing. Enjoy your favorite beverage rocking in the large teak rockers on the deck while watching the deer and birds feeding at sunset. The backyard features a regulation horseshoe pit and a children's playscape. After a day filled with outdoor activities, exploring downtown San Marcos and dining at one of our wonderful restaurants, you may be entertained by our selection of vintage games and toys. We are the perfect location for a multi-generational family retreat, families of Texas State students and Alumni returning for a visit!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1985

About: Mike and Kirsten Ousey have been married 20 years. Mike owns a concessions business and Kirsten is a Speech-Language Pathologist for the San Marcos school district. They have three teenage children. We have lived in San Marcos since the early 1980's.

Why San Marcos:
We lived in the cottage after we married and, as our family grew, we purchased a larger house on adjoining property where we currently live.
