My parents built this house in 1970 on property they bought in 1966. We lived in Corpus Christi at the time and moving to the Texas Hillcountry was their dream retirement location.
I went to the University of Texas in Austin and came to love this part of the country. When my parents passed away I took over maintenance and rental of this property. I spend most of the week days here and maintain an office and bedroom/bath in the house. My oldest daughter is a Junior at UT and my wife, younger daughter and I maintain our residence in Dallas.
I am 'semi-retired' as a former network engineer with Texas Instruments. I currently operate a wireless internet company out of this location and provide internet connections to many of the rural locations in the area. Needless to say there is a great wifi hotspot available in and around the main house.
My chief field support technician also lives in a small house on the same property.

This property is an ideal launching place for exploring the Hill Country or coming back to unwind after spending the day in Austin.
The house has been remodeled twice since it was built. The latest changes include all new windows, new central air-conditioners, wood deck and landscaping. There is also a new clothes washer and dryer in the house for your use.
Location, Location, Location... close to everything in the Hill Country.
I love the oaks surrounding this home. Oaks only grow so tall when surrounded by the native cedar trees. My parents cut out the cedar over 40 years ago and have given the surrounding trees room to grow. We keep them trimmed so you can enjoy shade as well as allowing the hilltop breeze through.
We can provide electricity and water ( no sewer ) and parking if you bring in a small travel trailer. We are not a trailer park but do have lots of parking. The front and back yard areas offer enough space for you to entertain if you have a large group.
We can arrange portage to and from your water adventures.
