The 25+/- acres is set amongst rolling tree covered hills.  With 20 or so acres left heavily wooded, 5+/- acres near the main house is cleared, except for a few live oak stands.  There is a dry creek bed along the south end of the property.  Winding trails through the trees are accessible in multiple areas.


All improvements are serviced by a water well.  A stone pump house provides insulation for infrastructure and a holding tank.

The main home offers a well thought out floorplan, offering 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, an impressive kitchen and homey living room with a large rock fireplace.  At 4049+/- square feet, there is plenty of space to spread out.  The care and attention to detail given to this home is everywhere.  The views from back deck will be hard to leave.  A fireplace, built in grill and counters, surrounded by an outdoor living room, pool and spa.  Inside the home, everyone will enjoy a large game room, tv room, or the full theater room.   A large office is offset to the comfortable master bath and master bedroom.  Truly fit for country living, an oversize laundry and mud room welcomes you into the home from the stone and cement car port.

Across the yard, a spacious workshop, in matching stone to the rest of the structures near the house, is accompanied by a cement basketball court and well insulated pump house, with an oversize holding tank.

To the west of the main house, nicely tucked away, is a storage shed and large chicken coop.  The raised, flat, area, could also be used for a second home site.
