About the Property
2 large king bedroom suites, 2 full baths, sleeps 8
Throughout this thoughtfully designed home, you’ll marvel at unique touches that speak to its special appeal – From the hand-laid stone pulled from the river, to the 5-tiered waterfall out back. You’ll even find original, framed art painted by previous owner and artist C.P. Montague (who happened to be one of Lyndon B. Johnson’s favorite) decorating the walls.
The open living area offers plenty of air conditioned space to catch up with friends, while the gourmet kitchen provides all you need to prep family-style meals, including a dishwasher for easy clean-up. Curl up with a book by the wood-burning fireplace (wood provided), host family movie night on the 52” flat screen TV and DVD player, or stream your favorite show through Wi-Fi on your devices.
Two luxurious king suites come complete with light-filled sitting rooms and beautiful linens, while a queen sleeper sofa in the living alcove and additional 22” queen inflatable mattress with comfy bedding creates room for up to 8 travelers. If you brought the little one, a Pack-n-play and high chair are available too.
Two full baths, one with a walk-in shower, the other with a square soaking tub offers a convenient way to share space. A front-load washer and dryer helps keep packing light.
An entertainer’s paradise lies just outside! Relax with a glass of wine on multi-level terraced patios while listening to the soothing cascading waterfall, or the fountain in the pond below. Fire up the charcoal grill and large smoker and dine alfresco with the whole group. At dusk, a fire pit awaits for story swapping, S’mores making, and stargazing.
Just 10 minutes down the road is historic Georgetown with its museums and live music. Shopping at IKEA and the outlet mall is just 20 minutes away, and you’ll be in the heart of Austin in 30 minutes.
Or stay close to home and find great fishing and tubing in the San Gabriel River, along with 172 acres for hiking and birding. Be sure to check out our farm tour where the whole family can learn about local fossils, search for arrowheads, engage with the animals, or take tractor rides. Don’t forget your pets! Open acres of leash-free space are a dog’s dream come true.
Ditch the city life for the serenity of the Texas Hill Country countryside and come see what it’s like to live on a working farm and explore a living museum!

About the owner: Dan and I both grew up in Rockdale, a small town 45 minutes from Georgetown. I grew up in the country on a small 3 acre farm and Dan grew up in town. We were childhood sweethearts and both attended Baylor University. I have loved furnishing and decorating the homes for our guests. I continue to do a lot of the landscaping and taking care of the general upkeep of the homes. We love to travel, garden and I am an avid reader. Since I have retired I have more time to volunteer. Dan is always busy working on something on the farm - he will never be bored!
Why the Owner Chose Georgetown, TX, USA:
When my mom and dad bought this beautiful piece of property, they gave each of their 5 children the option of building a home at a location of our choosing. Dan and I jumped at the opportunity and were the only ones to take them up on it. We moved to the farm in 1971 and built our home in 1977. After my dad died in 1986 Dan and I began buying the farm. When my mom died in 2010, she left her home and art studio to us. We've raised our family here and made the same offer to our two sons and our youngest took us up on it and built a beautiful home for his family in the middle of the property. Rocky Overlook and The Palette Pad are the heart of the farm and I could not even think of selling them. I didn't want them to fall in disrepair from not being used, or vandalized. Both are so unique that I wanted to share them. My sisters helped me and we totally remodeled the interiors of both and the results have been spectacular. It has been so gratifying to share my parent's dream home, history, and talents with others. In each house, I have a notebook with the story of their searching for and finding the property and building the houses. Also, the story of mama's painting and how she became C. P. Montague and a favorite of President Lyndon B. Johnson. The joy and appreciation that guests have when staying there are a living tribute to mama and daddy!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This large, open home was designed around centuries-old live oak trees. It is constructed of river rock, every rock was picked up at the river on the property by Sheron's parents, Bill and Pauline Thweatt. Guests have marveled at how the rock was laid - all of the grout exactly the same depth and smoothed, and the lines of rocks precisely straight. Mama laid all of the rocks that show on the front of the houses and the interior rock fireplace walls. Daddy laid rock on the back and sides where they would not be as visible! The artist in her had to have the very straight, precise lines!! There are special rocks interspersed with the river rocks that mama could tell you a story about.
