When you turn onto this 55 ± acre property the old two-story German style home comes into view, standing guard from its hillside perch.  As you come closer, you realize it’s actually new construction but with the old German touches, cut limestone, deep lintels, metal roof, wooden beams and the look is carried throughout the interior as well.  The front of the property consists of a field with established grass and native cover that has been left along the fence line.  Behind the home, the land spills down to a small wet weather creek lined with mature Post Oak, Black Jack and Mesquite.  Enough underbrush has been left to give the native game plenty of cover and browse.
