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.
