The secondary living room can serve as a TV or playroom and is adjacent to three bedrooms with an ensuite and jack and jill bath. The fifth bedroom is upstairs and can serve as a bedroom, flex space, guest suite with an ensuite bath, or secondary office.
The screened-in porch leads to the detached garage and garage apartment with features a full kitchen, wash and dryer hookups, bedroom and ensuite bath.
City water and water well installed in 2019. Much of the system design and property is built around capturing and retaining water when it is received. The ditches (swales) and pocket pond were dug so that in large rain events it would be captured and slowed on the property to allow the trees to retain water.
Minutes from the conveniences of modern everyday life, all the while feeling like you are a hundred miles away from the city. Restaurants, CVS, Home Depot, and HEB are five minutes away, 35 minutes to Downtown and Austin Bergstrom Airport.
Owners have built and established all of the pieces for the most advanced regenerative food forest in texas to provide an abundant food system and support many families with a wide range of perennial abundance.
There are 165 fruit trees planted with multiple varieties of
A diverse swath of native grasses and wildflowers for both beauty and for water retention and grazing should a new owner choose. The seller has rotationally moved chickens and had plans to establish sheep as well.
Extensive organic soil beds and a very large fenced-off raised mound garden bed with drip irrigation.
Two secondary garden areas with 1,000 strawberry plants were planted last season.
12 raised bed garden beds with blueberries and raspberries planted. Those were established so they would get partial shade and have a more acidic soil base for those.
Planted 1,000 linear feet of blackberries and put in a whole trellis and drip irrigation system.
Piping runs for an electrical conduit to the middle of the property to run electrical for a barn should the new owner decide to build a barn.
All water irrigation infrastructure is put in place. Main underground lines run the length of the property and can be run off the well or city water as a backup. Drip irrigation to the entire orchard.
Five sections of sprinklers for the pasture. Automated control boxes running to eight distinct controllers.
Eight bee boxes are in place and are three years into establishing the ag exemption.
Electrical deer fence around the entire perimeter of the property. This protects the orchard and the garden from overgrazing while still allowing an easy view through it to expand the view of the property. There is a high voltage electrical box near the house that has been set for automation to be turned on and off through the Internet.
Added four very high-quality carports that are built out as animal pens. Five separate grazing paddocks were established with electrical rope to allow for cattle, pig, or sheep grazing.
As one Dripping Springs homesteader said when he came by, this is a homesteader's paradise. Beautiful luxury home on a system of abundance that when not in an extreme drought evokes a sense of the garden of Eden.
