That classic phrase, “Everything’s Bigger in Texas!” is known all around the world...and the rumors are true. From big hair to Big Tex to massive amounts of state pride, the Lone Star State knows how to outdo pretty much everyone else.
So, when searching for your Hill Country home, why not spring for a Texas-sized one? Let your dreams (and your square footage) be as big as the Hill Country sky in the summer! Here are a few homes in New Braunfels that fit that Texas-sized bill...
1. 107 Sun River - $720,000 (4230 Sq. Ft.)
This beautiful stone house in the River Chase neighborhood is suited for the best of both worlds. The strategic open floor plan includes living room and kitchen design that inspires open-air decorating plans, providing a visual of the entire floor from just about any vantage point. And, with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and bonus rooms, you’re free to create a home theater, home office, art studio, or whatever else you can dream up (with a hobby space above the garage to boot). The home features high ceilings in the common areas, gorgeous windows that allow for natural light (including a master bedroom window that spans an entire wall!).
2. 1316 Marys Cove - $1,199,999 (4161 Sq. Ft.)
South of I-35 surrounding Lake Dunlap is the lovely neighborhood of Kreuslerville. Inside this prestigious gated community, this 4,161 square foot home rests on Mary Cove. This home is not for the folks who plan on becoming reclusive and hiding away in their little house...no, this home is for the entertainer, who shares their space with those who need a place to get away or rest from the worries of the world. A man cave/bunk room is downstairs (perfect for Sunday football games), and the house sits on the water with a boat dock down the bank and plenty of outdoor seating for conversations lit by moonlight. The vaulted ceilings in the bedrooms and unique design in the bathrooms really make this a special place to live.
3. 2284 Bluebird Drive - $579,900 (5200 Sq. Ft.)
This massive home offers over 5,000 square feet of living space in the Oak View neighborhood! Thanks to its sprawling square footage, this home provides rare amenities you won’t see in many smaller homes. For instance, this floor plan offers not one, but two master bedrooms (out of the five total bedrooms), giving you several options concerning living spaces. Whether you want room for guests or a gorgeous home office, you’re able to customize the space to fit your lifestyle. Additionally, residents can enjoy a cozy den with a brick fireplace and vaulted ceilings, as well as a kitchen that opens up into the living room, partitioned by a practical island. This house has been recently remodeled and features a home theater and an oversized garage. The house is over 40 years old and still retains a certain charm that makes for a comfortable living situation. It is surrounded by a historical German rock wall on a 1.91-acre plot right off FM 1863. Beyond the space in the main house, there is a small cottage in the back to host guests or to turn into a home office or painting studio for a little retreat while you get work done.
5. 858 Meridian Dr - $500,000 (3,137 Sq Ft)
With four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and spacious bonus room, this home is that perfect combination of spacious, elegant, and precise. With stunning architectural details like waterfall ceilings, crown molding, solid wood plantation, and shutters, the spacious interior isn’t just sprawling empty space: each square foot feels like it has a purpose. From the gorgeous dining room with french doors to the master suite (featuring a jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower!), this home is an entertainer’s delight!
5. 16 Horseshoe Ct - $1,175,000 (6,2 83 Sq. Ft.)
The T Bar M Ranch Estates neighborhood is an upscale community in a quiet, tranquil corner of New Braunfels. This house on Horseshoe Court features 6,000+ square feet and is ready for the next owner to dream up how to use it! The upstairs features a fantastic hobby room with a vaulted ceiling that can accommodate a pool table, artist’s corner, or big screen television for those Sunday afternoons watching football. A home theater is set up for weekends in and ready for slumber parties with the kids, and the office space is excellent for the work-from-home scenario to get even more time with the family in the house. Outdoors, the patio kitchen and swimming pool are perfect for hosting pool parties and grilling outside when the weather is great. You will virtually double your living space by noticing how much time you’ll spend outside, and there is still so much to explore about this property.
