A well-appointed 4500 sq. ft. home sits atop the hill of this private 39 acre private ranch, overlooking a serene pond surrounded by a mix of pasture and wooded trails – close to Giddings, Smithville (home of the movie “Hope Floats”), and Buescher State Park. Watch the sunrise from the covered front porch then move inside to the open kitchen/breakfast/sitting area with floor-to-ceiling windows that frame a broad expanse of landscape and wildlife. Prepare breakfast in the upscale kitchen with large counter space to accommodate a team of family cooks. Enjoy eating in the scenic breakfast area or move to the formal dining room with a 12-seat antique table.
Relax poolside on the covered patio with cozy sitting area and additional table seating for 12, while the kids play in a wooded area nearby, complete with 8’ x 10’ “clubhouse”, tree fort, kid-sized zip line and sand pit. Relax in the heated pool spa, then take a short walk to the pond and enjoy casting a few lines from the banks using kid and adult fishing gear provided. Take a turn at “orienteering” through the woods to spot wildlife, made welcome through the ranch’s “Wildlife Management Program.” Wander by the pole barn and say hello to the ranch horses, chickens and barn cats.
When the fun shifts indoors, enjoy three separate lounge/activity areas – all with large flat screen TVs, DISH and internet access for Netflix and Roku. The downstairs main living room has two full-sized recliner sofas with a large reclining rocker and is perfect for TV, movies or adult conversation. The upstairs loft has a sectional sofa and accommodates TV, movies or video game play (PlayStation). The large downstairs game room is ideal for TV, movies or video game play ((Xbox) and is outfitted with a sofa, lounge chair, 4-seat side table, shuffleboard, doll house and play kitchen, along with shelves full of toys, crafts and board games for all ages.
The 4 ranch house bedrooms sleep 16 people, and an additional 4 guests can be accommodated - 2 on a queen sized memory foam sleeper sofa in the game room and 2 on a popup king sized bed set up in the master bedroom sitting area. Two of the upstairs bedrooms sleep 4 with a queen bed and a trundle bed, while a third upstairs bedroom accommodates 6 with a queen bed, two bunk beds and pack-n-play crib with baby monitor upon request (booster/high chair available as well upon request.) A large master bedroom downstairs has a king sized memory foam mattress and spa-style bathroom with walk-in shower.
