42 acres Leakey Real County
Located on top of the world just 6 miles east of Leakey and only minutes to the fabulous Frio River, this exceptionally designed and constructed home awaits the discerning buyer who puts energy efficiency, privacy, security and scenery first. The property is located in one of most scenic and popular areas of the Texas Hill Country yet the location of the home makes you feel as if you were miles from anyone. Gated access to the home is off FM 337 and the home is just a short scenic drive from pavement along a cement and gravel road to a fabulous 3 bay garage with a large concrete parking area and drive.
Featured in Architectural Digest, the custom concrete and earthen home was designed and built not only to be superbly energy efficient but was situated and constructed to highlight the natural beauty of the hundreds of square miles of the surrounding Texas Hill County. There is only one word that can describe the spectacular views from the property and that is unbelievable. The sprawling 1-story home is the ultimate get-away escape, where you can watch glorious sunrises peek over the eastern hills and gorgeous sunsets descend over the western hills and valleys from your windows. The dramatic architecture features 7.5 ft-high, double-paned glass windows as exterior walls that look out at natureand inside, the ceilings soar to a height over 13-feet. This green, earth-sheltered home was designed for optimum energy-efficiency and maximum utility bill savings.
The house contains over 3,700 square feet of air-conditioned/heated living space. While a structural engineer and an architect designed this home with many unique structural features, the buyer will be able to add their own custom touches to finish the home to their own decorating tastes and lifestyle needs. The L-shaped house offers breathtaking window vistas from every room. A huge, open main living area provides a picture-perfect setting for serene, private pursuits or entertaining family and friends. The very large master suite, located in its own separate wing, offers magnificent views from the bed and sitting area to an open shower and a space created for a spa bath. The master suite also features an oversized walk-in closet and a convenient laundry nook. In addition to a 2nd bedroom and bath, two very large rooms with closets open up to wide window vistas off the main living area, and are suitable for third and fourth bedrooms or offices or artist studios. A bonus room could be used for secure storage or a wine cellar. The large 800-sq ft 3+car garage is a car collectors or hobbyists dream.
