Property description

Beautifully restored German 1860s homestead nestled in the Texas Hill Country. Perfect for families - 3-house compound on 450 gorgeous acres. Owned and decorated by top San Antonio designer, this home has been published for it interior integrity and beauty. Poco A Poco has hosted many VIPs; a former Texas Governor, actors, San Antonio business tycoons and many admiring socialites. Luke Perry stayed here when he was filming 8 Seconds. The main house has a full kitchen (incredibly well-stocked) with a cozy living room and fireplace, a wonderful spot for playing games, reading books or just visiting, a lovely dining room with seating for up to 8 people with attaching sitting area. There is a master bedroom and bathroom with tub. Upstairs is a kid room with 5 twin beds. There is a shared bathroom with shower and a lovely master with king. Adjacent to the main house is the blue room – it is a little house with 2 full beds and a bath with shower. There is another house we call the smokehouse (it was originally truly a smokehouse). It has a full kitchen, laundry room, master with a queen and bath with vanity, tub/shower. There is a crib in this house and a sofa in this house that would be perfect for a child. We have a lovely pool, playground, bikes. We are minutes to upscale grocery store, shopping, Boerne/Bulverde restaurants and antique stores. 25 minutes to San Antonio. We are 3 miles to Guadalupe State Park. Also a few miles to Anhalt, a dancehall first established in 1887.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1950

About the owner: Our grandparents bought and began preserving this property in 1950. Our mother, a well-renowned interior designer from San Antonio has further updated it and showered it with love and gorgeous attention to detail.

Why the Owner Chose Bulverde:
We've celebrated birthdays, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, yearly cousin's camp, a wedding, many a dinner party at our family ranch. Girl's weekends, boy's weekends! Picnics, dinners under the stars. The prettiest sunsets in Texas. We have beautifully groomed grounds. You could spend the whole day lounging by the pool. Once you get here you never want to leave. It is an enclave of relaxation and tranquility. It is simply good for you soul!

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
It is a decorator's paradise with antiques, intricate textured upholstery, the most comfortable beds, pillows, (all allergen free). Courtney has decorated houses all over the world from London to Aspen to Cabo. Her ranch showcases some of our favorite finds. You could spend the whole day just enjoying her treasures peppered throughout the houses. It's quirky and quaint - most of all comfortable and cozy!
