This one-of-a-kind pueblo-style all-rock historic ranch house was built in 1938 by then- San Antonio Mayor McGown as a cattle ranch retreat. The home was designed to mimic San Antonio's Governor's Palace (aka, 'the Presidio') and, thus, looks much older than its mere eighty years. Unique 1930s tiles abound throughout as do old-world Mexican doors, high concrete-planked ceilings, one-foot-thick limestone walls, two Kiva-style rock fireplaces, two hearth-styled rock fireplaces, along with two spacious and modern house additions. The home has been completely updated with new thermal windows, window support timbers, a modernized kitchen, four heat pump systems, and more. It comes with a spacious 3-car carport and cistern-belfry, 1950s fired tile-brick working barn, windmill, horse barb-less wire fencing with a round pen (a perfect horse property), tiled entrance-way, new driveway and sidewalk, and a Texas-registered cave! Prayer nichos are tucked into almost every room with an original painting or two complimenting a Lady of the Guadalupe theme. Well lit. Highly safe. Quiet and serene with common Guadalupe River access. Outstanding schools. And a short ten-minute drive from downtown Boerne. Forty-five minutes to the River Walk, twenty-five minutes to La Cantera, forty minutes to the wine country, and forty-five minutes to Fredericksburg. There's room for an attached third bedroom addition and owners will throw in their cute trailer (currently their third bedroom) as a guest house 'casita.' Once you see this Hill Country palace you will say, "Me amo este hogar."
