                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: We are an Austin family of six who always dreamed of having that space in the country to let the children run and play, free from worry and plenty of room for imaginations to roam.

                      Why the Owner Chose Blanco:
                      We chose this idyllic location because it was private but easily accessible from our home in Austin. At night, the cool breezes, breathtaking Texas sunsets and the quiet, star-filled skies are irresistible. This is the place to re-charge!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                      Less than a hour from the city, we discovered native Texas at its best: The only sounds at this secluded hill country location are the cicadas, whiporwills and bullfrogs at sunset. The only lights visible at night come from the moon and stars. A few days and nights here and it is hard to return to civilization! Twenty minutes from restaurants & shopping at the Hill Country Austin Galleria; 60 minutes from Austin Bergstrom & 90 minutes from San Antonio International airports.
