Get away from it all & still access everything Austin has to offer! Just 20 minutes from downtown this recently updated “cabin in the woods” sits on 10 beautiful, historic acres. The property is a mix of open space providing great stargazing & woods with shaded trails to walk in the summer. Wet weather streams trickle peacefully through the woods after a rain. An open floor plan makes for easy living & entertaining. Enjoy quartz countertops with tile backsplash, SS appliances, & plenty of counter/cabinet space in the kitchen. The living room boasts a cathedral ceiling and wood burning stove surrounded by stones from the property. Energy efficient windows & covered porches keep rooms light yet sheltered from the Texas sun. The main bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with subway tile, deep tub, rainfall showerhead, & walk-in closet. The bedrooms & bathroom off the living room afford a separate space for kids, guests, or in-laws. Front & back porches add space for entertaining, bird watching, or simply relaxing. Landscaping with perennials brings seasonal color & hummingbirds. Enjoy a shady picnic under Live Oaks or relax roasting marshmallows by the fire pit. Two outbuildings are across from the house: 1 with wireless internet used as a home office, the other a garden shed. A building with water & electric is next to a 50’ x 80’ lighted field that can be a great day or night play space or cleared area for a second home. A chicken coop is tucked away beyond the backyard – just add chickens for fresh eggs! Enjoy spectacular Texas sunsets from the northwest. And nestled within a grove of trees with a 150 yr old Live Oak you’ll find history – an 1870s cemetery from an early area settlement called Old Friendship. All but the 1 acre the house sits on has a wildlife management exemption that new owners can take advantage of. Don’t miss a chance to live the country life without sacrificing any comfort & convenience Austin offers.
