The Texas Modern Farmhouse is purposely designed to frame the inspiring Hill Country views seen from this 16 ACRE hilltop site. Located 11 minutes from Bandera, the views are of the neighboring 5000-acre Texas State Natural Area and the sprawling Middle Verde Ranch. Powered by solar panels, the modern farmhouse is off the grid and sits at the top of a 1680’ hill.
Designed to watch the play of light and bring the outside in, the home’s central space has floor to ceiling windows, with ceilings that soar to 22’. This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home is built of concrete, wood, stone, and glass. The use of repurposed wood, brick, and industrial fixtures is a tribute to a bygone time, giving contrast to the cool, clean, modern elements of the home which is cozy enough for two but can easily accommodate larger gatherings.
For those desiring power independence, the present owners have designed and installed off-the-grid utilities. The property has been developed with sensitively selective clearing and includes a chip-sealed driveway up to the hilltop homesite. There is no overhead wiring on the property to interrupt the view of the hills.
Outdoor living spaces include the eastern facing porch overlooking the valley, the sunset fire ring near the 864 sq. ft. garage/solar building and multiple hammock hideaways scattered throughout the property. There is a private studio nook with separate access off one corner of the home.
The Hills of Bandera Ranch is a gated community that strives to minimize nighttime light pollution with outdoor lighting guidelines, making this a great location to enjoy the full eclipse of the sun in 2024.
