Friends, this one is special.
This property comprises 204.1 acres of pasture and a 2,668 sq ft (per RCAD) home, set in the countryside east of Winters near Crews off Highway 153. Paved road all the way.
The open-concept home, built in 2014, includes a dining room, a kitchen with generous island, a pantry, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a laundry room. There is an upstairs bonus room which could be closed off to form another bedroom, and an office.
Outside, there is a screened-in porch with a hot tub (included in the sale), an inviting deck for grilling, and a large front porch crafted from cedar posts and decking. Unique metal and wood pieces punctuate the design, handcrafted by the owner.
There is a 2-car garage, one bay of which includes a garage door. The other bay uses a walk through door, though a second garage door has been framed. Under-staircase storage in the garage adds to the home’s already ample storage.
This is a house built for off-grid living, with geothermal H/A in four zones, and two hot water heaters, one of which is heated with the geothermal system. Six 3,000 gallon rainwater collection containers and a rainwater filtration system (sediment/UV/charcoal) collects rainwater and makes it drinkable. The yard and garden are serviced by the North Runnels Water system.
It’s also a house built for lasting comfort, with features like:
- Low E Anderson windows
- Electric appliances, except a propane dual fuel stove (elec oven/gas top)
- PVC trim in the bathrooms
- Soft close cabinets in kitchen
- Glass hardware
- ADA-width doors
- Hand-scraped hardwood floors with SIP panels under the flooring
- Foam insulation in attic and 6” in walls
- 1” stucco plus Styrofoam sheet insulation externally
- 4X8 steel I-beams under the house
- Landline and internet from Direct TV and Taylor Telephone
A 40’ x 50’ metal barn/shop with central heat and air is included in the sale. The barn is insulated and features drive-in, drive-out roll doors. There is a 208 sq ft bedroom/bathroom unit in the barn, along with a sink, washer/dryer hookup, and the capacity for addition of kitchen facilities, making it a comfortable guest quarters.
A 15′ x 50′ covered awning behind the barn provides convenient covered parking. There is an attached 10′ x 16′ tack/feed room with storage on the attached to the shop.
A diversion dam from a creek on the property directs water to one of the two tanks used for watering cattle. Of the 206 acres, 100 are leased with a neighboring farmer. This is a verbal contract which will likely end after the sale of the property. The harvest after the sale, however, is still promised to the lessor.
This is a thoughtfully-designed, meticulously-finished, and completely unique home. It’s a home for the craftsperson looking for a residence and acreage that will fuel their art. It’s a home for someone serious about sustainability and an off-grid future. It’s a home for anyone who wants to be immersed in all the prickly beauty of West Texas.
