Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: I fell in love with Bandera while visiting a dude ranch in the area with my family in 1985. This lovely home was built by my late mother in 1995. She was a decorator and artist, and this was her special project late in life. This house is located on a bluff above the lake and has panoramic views. My family has owned the ranch since 1989.

Why the Owner Chose Bandera, TX, USA:
Cool Water Acres is located 5 miles from downtown Bandera and encompasses 54 acres of beautiful Texas Hill Country. A private 7 acre spring fed lake provides cool clear water for swimming, fishing and relaxing. The lake was built in the 50's around a dam on Indian Creek and ranges in depth from 3 to 20 feet. Most of the year overflow waters from the underground springs in the lake, pass over a spillway and meander their way to a dramatic 15 foot waterfall and pool. Bass, perch and catfish are plentiful and easily caught, when they're in the mood. Two floating docks provide for fishing and sun bathing. A 2 person electric bass boat is available to serious fishermen. The rest of the ranch topography contains varied terrain and elevations which make for wonderful hiking excursions. The quarry, from which the material for the dam was taken, was an ocean floor millions of years ago and sea fossils abound. Another part of the ranch runs through a cool tree covered gorge, where it is common to see deer, turkey, and armadillos. And on another, you can be perched up on a high ledge once used by Indian lookouts and view the magnificent surrounding hills.
