Dan and I have owned 112 acre Scurlock Farms since 1986. My mom and dad originally purchased it in 1968 and after my dad died, we began buying it from my mom. She passed away in 2010 and we inherited her home and art studio, which are also on the farm. Not wanting to sell the homes, we remodeled them and began letting others share the beauty of the home and the farm in late 2010 (HomeAway #903120 and #369386).
In 2013 we were fortunate to be able to buy the adjoining 60 acre farm and the 3 bedroom home on it. We have totally remodeled that home and furnished it very comfortably. I have been using it as overflow rentals from the other homes listed, but decided to go ahead and give it its own listing.
Dan and I have had a ball meeting people from all over the United States and the world. Last week, a band from Spain playing at the SXSW Festival in Austin stayed at Indian Bluff and the Studio and the week before that a bride and groom and his family from India spent a week at Indian Bluff.
Dan and I both have been in the insurance business since college. Dan has recently retired and I am thinking about it! We also own a continuing education company, providing required CE for Texas insurance agents. Between that, the 3 vacation rentals, running a 172 acre farm, church activities and volunteering, we are very busy.
Owner Sheron Scurlock purchased this house in 2013
We truly live in one of the most beautiful areas of Texas, and certainly one of the prime spots along the San Gabriel River. When the adjoining 60 acre farm became available, we jumped at the chance to purchase it! Guests can enjoy the mile of river frontage, fishing, hiking, fossil and arrow head hunting, pecan harvest, or simply being lazy on the patio enjoying a book or drink under the huge live oaks. In the evening listen for the owls as they call to each other.
The views from the bluff are spectacular! The sunset over the river is taken from the bluff behind Indian Bluff.
