Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: My husband and I built this custom home 5 years ago named it the 'Rhino Ranch'. I work for an airline company and love to travel. I have been to almost every country in the world. I am fortunate to be able to work for an airline and fly for free where ever I go. My favorite destination was Sydney, Australia. We lived there for 3 years. My daughter was born in England as we also lived there for 4 years. I am from San Antonio, Texas and moved back home to be closer to family. My husband Glenn is retired and loves to work around the house and the yard. Our hobbies are collecting movies, reading good books, tennis (John Newcomb Ranch and T Bar M are only 10 minutes away), traveling, entertaining, cooking and hosting. Golfing is minutes away. We would love to have you stay with us and have the vacation of a lifetime!

Why the Owner Chose New Braunfels, TX, USA:
This property has the most spectacular views. It is secluded and so serene. Once you arrive, you will not want to leave.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Movie Theater, hill country views, 1000 sq ft patio.
