Property Description

his historic turn-of-the-century, restored central Texas farmhouse is located on a private 11 acre tract with hill country views. The home was built in 1904 by C.S. Belford for E.J. Glasscock-Talbott, daughter of Georgetown’s founder, George W Glasscock. An excellent example of L-Plan architecture, Many of Belford’s homes are preserved in Georgetown’s Belford National Historic District. The two-story home features original long leaf pine flooring, tall ceilings, original hand carved staircase, fireplace, double hung windows, and antique lighting. The primary bedroom is finished with original bead board walls and a gorgeous en-suite primary bath which includes an antique clawfoot tub and separate steam shower with Carrara marble seating. There are modern, generous walk-in closets and cabinetry in the primary closet; and the kitchen has been recently remodeled in the heart of the home. The wraparound porch is one of the best features of the farmhouse and it overlooks the vast lawn and adjacent pond. The surrounding acreage has been cleared and native trees and wildflowers thrive within the fully fenced and gated property. Healthy, acre and half-acre ponds are stocked with bass, bluegill, and catfish. Both ponds are 10-15 feet deep and the hillside is irrigated by a solar pump with water from the half-acre pond. A modern, two-story garage with room for two vehicles compliments the original home. The first floor of the garage has been nicely finished with cabinets, drawers, countertop workspace, a stainless steel sink, beverage fridge, and full bathroom. The second floor is a newer apartment with contemporary kitchen and updated appliances. The combined, open space makes a perfect carriage house. Located in the hills of eastern Travis County, this historic home has views of the ponds and surrounding hills. The second floor has thirty-mile views and this is a rare opportunity to own a piece of Texas history sitting on gorgeous acreage just minutes from central Austin.
