Fredericksburg house description

Luxury awaits you in the Texas hill country!

Luckenhouse is a beautifully renovated 3 bedroom, 2 bath home on two acres in the heart of the Texas Hill Country 290 wine road. From the back porch you can see four different wineries! There are over a dozen wineries located within just 10 miles of the house which is only 8 minutes east of Fredericksburg, Texas. The house sits a half mile from 290 which is far enough to give plenty of peace and quiet, while still being very easy to access. Luckenhouse is completely smoke and animal-free. The spacious two-story home boasts a stainless steel and granite gourmet kitchen which opens to views of the living area complete with wood burning fireplace. Residents enjoy plenty of room for relaxing after a day of winery trips, shopping, or cycling the awesome hill country roads. Watch the sun set while sitting in rocking chairs on the westward facing porch; or enjoy a coffee while watching the sunrise on the east facing patio. A selection of games and DVDs are provided for entertainment as well as wireless Internet service.

The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking in, with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, coffee maker, tea kettle, and all kitchen accessories required to cook in. The local grocery store is eight miles away if you would like to prepare your meals in the kitchen and enjoy the peaceful quiet of a hill country escape. If dining out is more your style, local places are nearby, including the recently opened Pink Pig and a wide variety of places in town, ranging from very casual to gourmet.

The main downstairs bedroom suite has a king size, memory foam bed and an iPhone compatible alarm clock. The downstairs bathroom offers a full bathtub/shower and sink plus a second vanity/sink area adjacent to the bedroom. New Egyptian cotton linens and comforters, pillows and blankets adorn the bed, along with views of the living room fireplace.

Upstairs are two additional rooms, both with queen beds, iPhone enabled clock radios, and bed side tables. These beds also feature luxurious Egyptian cotton sheets, comforters and plenty of pillows. Upstairs residents share a full bathroom.

During your get-away, enjoy the scenery and country air on the spacious front or back porches. Enjoy coffee, wine and cheese, or dinner on the comfortable patio furniture. In the evenings, you can watch the stars emerge and possibly hear the calls of a nearby peacock from the neighbor’s ranch. In addition, enjoy the garden and orchard on the property while viewing the wide-open Texas skies at sunset and star rise.

For those looking for shopping, venture into town for antiques and crafts, or meander two miles up the road for Trade Days held on the third weekend every month. The Wildflower Farm is also a popular attraction, about four miles down the road.

For avid cyclists, Luckenhouse provides a great launch place for those looking to enjoy the awesome hills of Gillespie and Kerr county as well as ample space for friends to meet post-ride. The famous Willow City loop is about a 20 mile ride from Luckenhouse. Enchanted Rock is also a popular attraction
Luckenhouse is the perfect location to enjoy the Texas hill Country. Everything is nearby and convenient, including travel from Austin, San Antonio and beyond.

Come enjoy the escape of Luckenhouse, we look forward to your visit.

                  Location

                  Car: Necessary

                  Luckenhouse is located approximately 1/2 mile off of 290, roughly 8 miles from Fredericksburg. There are many wineries nearby, and several are visible from the back porch. Our home offers convenient access to shopping in Fredericksburg or hiking Enchanted Rock during the day, and a quiet retreat with a view of the stars at the end of a busy day. The Hill Country roads are also popular for avid cyclists.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  Why the Owner Chose Fredericksburg:
                  We love the Texas Hill Country and this house is a perfect little representation of everything wonderful about the country escape experience.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Set directly among the Hill Country wine scene! You can see at least 4 wineries from the back porch. It's easy to get to and close to everything you want in Fredericksburg, yet far enough away to enjoy quiet evenings watching stars and listening to nature.
