Southwest Homestead Retreat

Southwest Homestead Retreat

8 Beds 4 Baths 2,400 Sq.Ft.


Yes, a homestead/ family compound/ urban farm/ is finally  here and ready for your buyers!

Almost 3 acres, just outside the city limits.  No deed restrictions, no city restrictions, no city taxes, no HOA.

The main home was originally built as a 3/2, but the garage was converted to a huge laundry room plus two additional bedrooms, one has door to the outside, which would be great for an office or private entrace for guests- so currently the main home is 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, plus an enormous sunroom and primary closet addition, increasing the sqfootage even more.

The ADU is a 2 story, built recently.  The first floor entrace is into the living room and kitchen, then upstairs you have 2 bedrooms and a full bath.  One of the bedrooms has adorable built in custom bunk beds!

Also on the main floor of the ADU is an additional office room, with a private entrace and half bath. 

(The total bed/bath count in the ADU is 3/1.5)

In addition, there is a secondary entrace to the property on Claxton Rd- it has a gate and leads to an RV parking spot complete with a full breaker panel and power for a tiny house or camper. When campers have been there before, water was run via hose from the main house to the RV spot.

The ADU is currently rented to a long term tenant for $1500/month.  The tenant would love to stay but isn't in a lease.

Here is a list of additional improvements on the home and property:

In 2019 the entire HVAC was replaced with a Trane system, inside and out.  The metal duct work was retained but it has multiple full particulate deep cleanings.  

At the same time, a full house dehumidifier was installed, with its own thermostat style control panel.  

The HVAC and water heater both have leak detection systems with auto shut off programming.

A 4 stage water filtration system was installed that removes all water particulates including chlorine and chloramine.  The filters require annual replacement.

The 2019 water heater is high efficiency and blows cool air as it heats water, so leaving the closet door open will cool the laundry room.

Electrical panel was replaced in 2019 with all new electrical work in the home.  An additional panel was installed to run the second home and exterior power. 

There is a lifetime warranty on the windows which were installed in 2012.

The guest bathroom, primary shower, all sinks and the dishwasher have all new plumbing from 2019. 

The owner spent his career designing luxury green grocery stores, and the home renovations were all done to LEED silver to gold standards.

All doors are new, low VOC, solid.

All paint is low VOC green rated.

All sheetrock was replaced in 2019 and is mold resistant Georgia Pacific industrial grade with no paper backing, low VOC.

Custom cabinetry was installed in 2019 in the kitchen, bathrooms and closets.

The bathroom floors are Marmolium- a natural flooring renowned for durability, sustainability, high quality and innovative design.

The rest of the home's floors are polished concrete, professionally polished with natural texture adding to it's beauty.

.... and MORE!:

2 person infared sauna in the sunroom- 2017 Clearlight with new heaters

Dogproof screens in the sunroom windows

All appliances included including stainless refrigerators in the kitchen, laundry room and ADU

Quartz counters in the bathrooms and Silestone in the kitchen

Full home gutters (they did fill a rain water collection system, and can be re-routed back to it)

French drain on the side of the main home and around the ADU

Stainless appliances in the kitchen (double ovens, cookstop stove, vent hood are all 2019 replaced)


That doesn't even touch on the land!!!

1000 gallons of rainwater collection

Mustang grapes throughout the property.

Fruit trees are throughout the property, they took some hits during the storms but still bear fruit!

Goat pen with a shelter and a separate milking pen

Chicken coop with fenced chicken area

Large playhouse with rock climbing, two slides and an official Barbara Butler playhouse.


There are TWO natural cisterns that lead directly to the Edwards Aquifer.

The septic system is entirely new as of 2018/2019. 

All this PLUS A 20X40 STORAGE BARN!!!

Soon, a bridge will be built so that you can walk direclty to the Waldof School!!


During it's prime, there was an herb garden, orchard, chickens and goats, and multiple trails throughout the property.  The owners haven't had the time to maintain the homestead, but it is ready for a new owner to come and live out their dreams of homesteading, 10 minutes to the city.
