Why Carol Godsey chose Blanco

This property was built as a getaway into the hill country in 2013. It has brought so much joy and relaxation but is not utilized nearly enough. I am so excited to share it with visitors so they can grasp the beauty of one of our favorite spots in Texas.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Some of the features this home includes are a fully stocked kitchen, large dining and living space, wet bar for entertaining, outdoor kitchen, master suite, 2 guest rooms with en suite baths, laundry room, powder bath, and plenty of outdoor spaces. The most unique feature is the 20 foot sliding doors on the back of the house that completely retract, turing your great room into outdoor living.

Beautiful house!

This house is beautiful and very private. It’s our second time staying here and both times we brought our two frenchies and they loved running and playing.

The house is simply amazing and the acreage is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

From the time got there , to the time we left. Carol was terrific. Helped us out so much. The house is simply beautifully. The design, the layout. The pictures of this place are good, but in person it’s even nicer. With the river behind the house and the creek along the side. So much to see and do there. We will definitely be coming back. Not to mention we saw about 100 (not exaggerating)deer the 4 days were there. Turkeys as well. It’s just a beautiful place. Thanks.

Amazingly relaxing oasis in the hill country!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn’t have been happier with our stay! I’m almost hesitant to gush about this place as I don’t want to have issues booking it in the future! The House was very nice and had great amenities, plenty of outdoor seating and great entertainment space. We loved watching the hawks, deer, armadillo and cows in the morning. We will definitely be back! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!
