Property Description

Nestled just outside the quaint town of Utopia, Texas, 27977 FM 470 is truly an impressive Hill Country estate situated on 600 pristine acres fully cleared of all cedar trees. The property itself is completely low-fenced while the family compound is separately high-fenced with an automatic, gated entry. A 1.25 mile chip and seal driveway leads you through the ranch and to the main residence. The 4541 SQFT main residence welcomes you into the family compound with its circular driveway and expansive views of the surrounding hills. Once inside, you will find a beautiful chef's kitchen that is ideal for family gathering or entertaining. Wood countertops, stainless steel appliances, double ovens, and a Kinetico Reverse Osmosis plus filtration system in place. 12 foot ceilings throughout the kitchen and living room provide a spacious feel. A roaring fire in the rock fireplace is sure to keep you warm on those cold winter days. The separate dining room invites you in for all holiday or special occasions while the pantry is a cook's dream. Feel like you are living within our own private oasis with a remarkable primary suite that boasts its own attached patio. Additionally, the primary bathroom also boasts its own patio complete with an outdoor shower and clawfoot tub that overlooks the riding arena. Individual "his and hers" closets. Adjacent to the closets, you will find a two-person sauna installed inside the primary bedroom's spacious laundry area. Large guest-suite with full, ensuite bathroom. The media room is your ideal "hang-out" spot with thoughtful details such as Alder-wood cabinetry across one entire wall of the space. Office is positioned across from the living area and brings a fantastic work-from-home opportunity. Spend your summertime evenings on the patio with views of the backyard. As you exit the residence from the sizable mud room, you will walk through a two-car, covered car-port with space for your ATV and into a converted storage area complete with a heavy duty washer and dryer, hot water heater, and dog wash/grooming equipment. Additionally, the entire main residence is wired for a sound system both indoors and outdoors. There are approximately 15 Solar Panels installed on the main residence. Just a short walk from the main residence is the "music studio" that can easily be converted into an additional office space or guest suite. Half-bathroom attached. The building features louvered windows plus skylights that open to catch the hill country breeze. Surround sound speaker system installed as well as a mini-split. Outside, the "music studio" includes its own concrete patio and landscaping. The 33ft x 23ft storage building is heavily insulated and contains (3) mini-split systems. The "bunkhouse" building absolutely encompasses the family compound lifestyle. Downstairs, there is a 14ft x 32ft climate controlled room that is currently occupied as an office space. The attached 39ft x 24ft garage offers (4) automatic garage doors, oil-change pit, and enough spots for multiple vehicles. Situated on the opposite side of the garage is a (1) bedroom, (1) bathroom guest apartment with full kitchen, living room, and wood-burning stove. Upstairs, you will find an approximately 1,895 SQFT guest home affectionately dubbed as the "bunk house." Additional improvements include a (4) stall horse barn, large car barn, equipment storage building, and a 72ft x 117ft riding arena. Impressive rain water catchment system with (3) individual holding tanks. The farthest tank from the main residence holds 30,000 gallons, the tank behind the main residence holds 20,000 gallons, and the tank underground near the riding arena also holds 20,000 gallons.
