PROPERTY #014 - This one of a kind home is situated in prestigious River Tree, a gated community just south of Leakey on Hwy 83. Constructed of sustainable straw bales providing high insulation and low toxicity, this energy-efficient home and detached garage will impress you with low utility costs and low-maintenance. There are lots of wonderful touches throughout the home that make it truly one of a kind, including a "truth wall" window proudly displaying the home's construction. This beauty sits on two lots for a total of 5.2 acres where privacy and getting away from it all is a high priority and perfect for either your vacation or full-time home. In front of the property is a large private ranch and the rolling, tree-covered terrain provide plenty of cover for the wildlife that will surround you, and the courtyard entry is a landscaper's dream. The two bedrooms up the colorful tiled stairs are spacious and downstairs the custom made front door is metal and mirrored glass.
Sellers have put on a new metal roof, installed new appliances, counter tops and cabinets along with new paint and new stucco on the exterior. There is a privacy wall running in front of the home with similar construction and has window openings and attractive security lighting along it. A detached 2 car garage has an unfinished potential for guest quarters or an office suite that is plumbed and wired with electricity, with a floored attic that could be converted into a bedroom, office space or artist's studio above the garage. This bonus space is just waiting for you to add your own personal touches. As a landowner in River Tree you will have paved roads, underground electricity, a pavilion for private parties, a designated RV storage area and access to a stunning Frio River park area that includes the historic Lombardy Dam. Owners will also enjoy a walking path along the full length of the river in the development, boasting wildlife galore. REDUCED
