Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We have always wanted a ranch like this with a fantastic water feature. We purchased the ranch with the notion of renting to short term vacationers to offset expenses and help others create memories that will last a lifetime.
Why the Owner Chose Kingsbury, TX, USA:
The perfect place to escape, relax and get away from fast pace of city life!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the fact we are only one hour from Austin, 25 minutes from the F1 track and 10 minutes from the best BBQ that Texas has to offer (Lockhart & Luling). We feel the location is second to none. Oh, I better mention for the shopping addicts that the San Marcos Outlet Mall is just 30 minutes away :)
