In a Hill Country landscape peppered with Euro-Texan architecture and luxury golf course communities, some properties dare to stand out from the crowd.
Set on over 28 acres of pristinely maintained old-school Texas glory, 2201 FM 1339 ($999,999) is one such home. Boasting a location only ten minutes from the small town of New Braunfels (a local Hill Country darling), this exquisite hilltop estate manages to convey both rustic elegance and stately charm (not to mention 360-degree views).
Built in a style reminiscent of Thomas Jefforson’s iconic Virginia home Monticello, 2201 FM 1339’s striking neoclassical influences (regal doric columns and simple geometric plains) create a regal entryway.
Designed to accommodate both elegance and functionality, the common spaces in 2201 FM 1339’s 4600+ square foot layout are thoughtful and inviting, including a formal dining room and a family room with gallery-style lighting and a cozy fireplace.
The home’s open floor plan kitchen allows for plenty of natural light (thanks to ample windows) and continues to impress with a large island and overhanging wrought-iron chandelier. The state-of-the-art setup also includes a sub-zero refrigerator and gas range.
Besides the master suite’s generous layout (and bay window!), the home’s upstairs includes a second living room, as well as four more full bedrooms with private bathrooms. Clearly, 2201 FM 1339 was built with guests and families well in mind.
Not to be put in a box, 2201 FM 1339’s ample square footage also includes unique nooks and extra rooms that can be used for whatever hobbies and activities its residents desire. The study (pictured above) features gorgeous built-in bookcases, and the home gym is set up with mirrors and flooring. Additionally, a guest house and workshop were added in 2011.
What would a Hill Country home be without its water features? Thankfully, residents of 2201 FM 1339 don’t have to worry about such horrors. Keeping in step with the home’s neoclassical details, a set of standalone columns line the edge of a custom pool and hot tub (overlooking the ample acreage).
Far from remaining content with the standard “luxury home features,” the creators of 2201 FM 1339 added liberal porch space, whimsy yard construction (tree house, anyone?), and an airplane hangar (designed specifically so it can be easily re-purposed at the owner’s convenience).
All in all, from the grand entrance to the stunning backyard, every inch of 2201 FM 1339’s 28.5 acres exudes luxury charm.
