About Roby Norvell
The Norvell family hails from Houston, TX where we, like most Americans, lead over-booked lives full of schoolwork, school activities, sports, civic, and work responsibilities. We have owned another property in Wimberley since 2008 and have come to love the area. Our kids are young and our parents and family do not live nearby. We wanted a place for our extended family to get together to run, swim, climb, explore, spend time as a family, and just enjoy the beauty of nature. We wanted to add another property to enjoy with family and provide a vacation retreat for families or friends looking to escape to the Hill Country. We hope your family enjoys our Wimberley Retreat as much as we do.
Roby Norvell purchased this House in 2014
Why Roby Norvell chose Wimberley
We searched for 2 years+ to find an ideal home located on a deep and easily accessible section of the Blanco River. We decided on this retreat when we found the perfect combination of easily accessible deep and shallow water to provide river entertainment for all ages. The house is also ideal with huge windows facing the pool and river area beyond and the 4 bedrooms each with their own bathroom which provides everyone with the privacy they need.
What makes this House unique
Designing and building a new home allowed for us to build in a number of conveniences with guests in mind. Flexible common room to allow guests to mix and mingle as they see fit or to retreat into their own space for privacy. The great room and the wrap around porch provide stunning views of the pool and bluff along the river and allow a seamless tie with the outdoors.
