Paradise in the heart of Boerne! Whether you're looking for your very own hacienda or land with amazing development potential, this 6.5-acre property offers natural beauty, real privacy and the feel of seclusion in the middle of town. With property on both sides of Cibolo Creek this property is an absolute jewel. As you drive through your stately wrought iron gate discreetly tucked back from the road, under the thick canopy of mature Texas pecan trees, and across the river, you'll feel the tensions of the day melt away. You'll experience an otherworldly transition from the bustle of the outside world to this secluded property where wildlife abounds, with herds of white-tail and axis deer living on and around the land. You won't find another piece of property with all this natural beauty just blocks from the heart of downtown. The River Road Hacienda is an architect's dream, wrapped in a love story, and developed over decades of inspiration. Built by an architect for his wife, it started out as a simple "cottage", with a small living room and only five bedrooms. The 60-foot, dual-level living room would be added later as an anniversary gift between the couple, as were the Cowboy Room fireplace, the entire pool area, the stone decks, the three-car garage and massive laundry/mud room. As inspiration arose, rooms were transformed from their original purposes - the courtyard became a foyer, the garage is now the dining room and the nursery was converted to a convenient office, just steps from the master bedroom. In fact, the unique master bedroom's lower level was born of a midnight bolt of inspiration that actually makes this a 1-1/2 bedroom suite! The romance of The Hacienda's story is revealed in the international flavor of its details: the Cowboy Room's glass block wall from Germany, the master bath's blue tile from Italy, the master suite's magnificent wooden archway supported by cantera stone from Mexico. Exploring the house, you should keep your eyes open for whimsical details, like the quaint cantera window in the upper living room and the stained-glass details in the walls, created by the architect's lovely wife. Salvaged accents add to the charm and uniqueness of the design in many areas, like the master suite's gorgeous doors and full-length mirror, which were all salvaged from an old hotel! The second owners of the house were restauranteurs. They remodeled and expanded the kitchen into a chef's dream with double ovens, a six-burner + grill cooktop, about 40 linear feet of pantry space, and room for up to 3 refrigerators. The Hill Country-style stone bar doubles as a pass-through from the kitchen to guests in the Cowboy Room. There is plenty of practicality to balance out the romance and whimsy ... * The upper living room features a beautiful recess with electrical outlets for lighting * The lower master has built-in bookshelves and a curious cubby above the archway * The guest-wing hallway features a tucked-away office space, complete with desk, lighting, electrical outlets, and even a landline phone outlet * The guest wing and master bedroom both have fold-away ironing boards in the wall, and the master bedroom has a built-in laundry hamper * All bedrooms have generous closet space The stone walls and archways, as well as the tile floors give the house a warm "hacienda" feel throughout. The entryway tile is white travertine.
