Location: Located just a couple of miles from Camp Wood and only 21 miles from the fun Frio River getaway town of Leakey, this property offers privacy and seclusion with all the conveniences of town. With 360-degree views of the surrounding hills and quick access to RM 377, this place is the ultimate hill country oasis.
Land: With over 26 acres of flat, usable land and a 360-degree backdrop of beautiful hills, this land is about as good as it gets. Close to the house is a highly improved garden/orchard area, with several varieties of peach, plum, apple, pear, pecan, fig, and pomegranate trees, as well as a large tilled vegetable garden area complete with nearly a dozen custom raised-bed gardens for vegetables and herbs. Do you like wine? Make your own with grapes picked straight from the vine. Surrounding the home and guest house is all Texas native, drought and deer-resistant landscaping. The majority of the property has been left native (with partial, strategic clearing), providing great habitat for the abundant game in the area, consisting of native grasses with a mixture of Live Oak, mesquite, persimmon, hackberry, and some juniper. The property is easy to get around and explore, with strategic trails and cross-fencing. Most of the acreage is currently under an agricultural grazing exemption, keeping your taxes low and allowing you to choose what type of stock to run.
Improvements: A custom barndominium-style, tastefully-finished main home offers a large open living & kitchen area, a main suite and guest bedroom, loft, large pantry/office area, and two full baths as well as a huge garage/shop portion which could easily be absorbed as additional living space if desired. A covered front patio allows for great views of the sunrises over the nearby hills, and a back patio complete with a hot tub is the perfect place to enjoy a hill country evening. The second barndominium functions as a guest/bunkhouse with a full kitchen, large bathroom w/walk-in shower, a huge great room, and tons of foam-insulated shop space as well as a greenhouse accessible from the shop and covered parking for vehicles and/or equipment. Thirty-eight large solar panels on the guest house provide electricity to run the houses and a contract is in place to sell the unused power back to the power company, straight through the panels and back into the grid.
Water: You won’t need to worry about having plenty of water, with multiple sources to choose from. This property has city water from the city of Camp Wood, a newer well (300ft depth, 8gpm), and a large rainwater collection system which can each provide water to the homes and garden by the quick turn of a valve.
Game: Several different game species frequent the property, including Whitetail, Axis, turkey, and dove.\
