Inspired by the way old farmhouses were built, this custom built home and Mueller barndominium in eastern Llano County, gives you a timeless feeling in an oasis setting. Conveniently located 7.5 miles east of Llano, you're within 20 minutes of the Highland Lakes and Llano River, 45 minutes west of Austin and 40 minutes from Fredericksburg.
As you enter the low fenced 28.51 Ac ranch, you'll notice how meticulous the owners have been in removing most of the cedar and brush from the Agricultural Exempt land, resulting in more grass. There are 2 excellent wells, a nice well house and 2700 gal. concrete water storage tank that distributes water to 4 troughs as well as to the entrance. A seasonal creek runs through the west side of the property where 3 spreader dams are located and are dry right now in this drought. Wildlife is abundant on this unrestricted small ranch from being fed all year round, with several nice bucks being taken.
Upon entering the front door, you'll instantly feel at home in the open concept living/dining/kitchen area, with the ceiling in the living area soaring to 19 ft where aromatic cedar timber trusses span the room. The majestic stone fireplace offers you lots of warmth on cold winter nights and firewood storage. The walk-through kitchen features an abundance of cabinets, granite tile countertops, undercounting lighting, stainless steel electric appliances, a bar that seats 4, and a small desk area. It opens to a spacious dining room that can seat up to 12 people comfortably. A walk-in pantry, half bath and utility room, with another fridge, are off the opposite end of the kitchen.
All cabinets are custom made pecan with soft close drawers, and custom-made vanities in the bathrooms. The estimated 2622 sf home features the Main Suite on one side of the house with a walk-in shower and custom designed closet, with two more bedrooms sharing a Jack and Jill bathroom area on the opposite end. Stained concrete floors are throughout the house, with berber carpet in the bedrooms and Main Suite closet. Reclaimed barnwood beams grace the 10 ft. dining room and kitchen ceilings as well as having reclaimed barnwood in the recessed areas of the entry and sliding door to the back patio. The exterior of the house and barndominium features native limestone with caprock mortar, complimented by 150 year old timber posts and reclaimed wood siding.
The 1500 sf Mueller barn was built in 2011 and offers an approximately 700 sf 2/1 barndominium that is finished out as elegantly and cozy as the main house on one side, with a drive-in man cave on the other side. The man cave is insulated, has finished out walls, barnwood panel and compressed board, built-in stained cabinets, shop area with utility sink in the closet that houses the hot water heater and water softener. Use it as a garage/barn or add heat and a/c for more living area. It also has a large, covered area behind it for equipment. A small tack room and storage is located northeast of the barndo with stall panels set up for two separate pen areas. There is no water or electricity at this structure, but that is easily accessible.
Last, but not least, relax under the covered lighted pavilion in the back yard and enjoy the cool breeze under the ceiling fan or by the gas firepit, depending on the season. The property is blessed with an abundance of water, healthy hardwood trees, neat granite outcrops and lots of wildlife from deer to birds to turkey.
Whether you are looking for a weekend get-a-way from the busy city life or a permanent move, come take a look while it's still available, and you will not be disappointed. (Most furnishings to convey with acceptable offer, except for select items).
