Scenic and Private! Impressive views of nature and wildlife, complete privacy, and unintrusive neighbors make these 13 acres in River Mountain Ranch-Boerne unforgettable. The property abounds with graceful trees, distinctive rock outcroppings, and soaring hawks. This 3,347 square foot Tilson custom home boasts a master suite distinguished by uninterrupted views to the east, with dramatic moonrises most evenings, and French doors opening onto a small private porch. Banks of windows framed by graceful columns form a reading nook. The suite contains two walk-in closets and a bath including a jacuzzi, hand set shower tiles, and granite counters. A separate mother-in-law suite contains a spacious sitting room, bedroom, and full bath. A third en suite bedroom sits directly across the hall. Both bedrooms are set with French doors leading to outside sitting areas. The hallway, separating these suites from the public areas of the home, contains a built-in granite topped desk and spacious cabinetry. Public areas of the home consist of a sun-filled great room with dramatic views, high ceilings, art nooks, and a hand tiled wood burning fireplace. Columns and granite counters separate the great room from the large kitchen and breakfast nook. The kitchen hosts granite counters, custom tile, a full island, a built-in 5 burner gas range, built -in microwave and oven, a large pantry, and abundant storage cabinets. The roomy breakfast nook, overlooking the garden, can easily accommodate a full-sized table and chairs. A short hallway leads both to a powder room and to a generously sized utility room adequate for a full-sized second refrigerator, a full freezer, washer and dryer, water cooler, and storage cabinets. Entering through the front door, one steps into a broad, custom tiled entry hall. To the right, two Tuscan columns frame the formal dining room, sufficient in size to host holiday meals and celebrations. To the left, French doors enclose an immense room used as a library by the current residents, but the room is as versatile as your imagination and could easily transform into a game room, a billiard room, or a second living room. Immediately ahead, two more columns mark the entry to the great room. Accessible via a breezeway from the main house is a detached oversized 2-car garage and a guest house (524 square feet) to accommodate your guests. Entrance to the garage is in the rear of the property, garage easily houses two large vehicles, work spaces, and plentiful storage. The garage space could easily be turned into a second home because of the abundance of windows, separate heating & air conditioner units have been installed. The current guest house includes a large bedroom with French doors opening onto a private porch, a large 3/4 bath, and a small dining area complete with microwave and refrigerator. The area has been plumbed for a sink and wired with 220 for a stove. The guest house porch stairs or entrance door lead down to the walkway which encircles the home, providing direct access to the pool area. The 36' inground gunite, saltwater pool is an Art Deco design and contains two fountains. The pool has a rock and concrete surround and lower half-circle patio that provide some of the best views, particularly of sunrises, the soaring hawks, abundant hummingbirds, roaming deer, and moonrises. Several acres of the property are fenced to keep family pets and wildlife at an amicable distance from one another; however, the fence contains three additional gates, one on each side and one at the back to allow owners to roam the remaining acreage. Interior floors are either tile or wood. The exterior is combined brick and Austin stone.
