Texas Land & Home Search
Good morning Steve and Rosemary,
It was wonderful speaking with both of you on Monday. I do hope Florida is as sunny as Austin is now. It is 80 degrees today and has been warm enough to play cards on the patio at night. I can’t say I’m missing the snow back in Kentucky. I want to share some exciting properties with you, the home featured below is 4,000+/-SQFT, features a guest home, 76 acres and 1800 feet of spring-fed Alligator Creek. Located down a paved county road at a 900 foot concrete drive, this home is ideal for those seeking privacy and open views. This house was designed with energy efficiency in mind, taking advantage of the surrounding 76 acres of native and improved grass, trees and panoramic views. Included in the acreage are rights to both sides of Alligator Creek… there aren’t any Alligators but it does feature a 12,000 gallon storage tank. Please find additional properties with Land & Home below, These homes are located in desirable areas near Austin with intriguing market statistics and leverage. The Spicewood Springs area has seen an increase in activity. It’s proximity to Austin, new avenues of transportation, low tax rates and lack of HOA dues, allow these homes to accentuate any lifestyle. Given the impending changes to the tax code, I believe our sellers are motivated. I am dedicated to finding the perfect property for your investment and lifestyle goals, what features in your current home do you value most? What additional features would you like in your new home? I will send you the land listings in an email to follow. In the mean time, I am happy to dig up dirt on any properties you may be considering now or happen to run across. To keep within your timeline we’d want all the information as quickly as possible.
I look forward to working with you,
