2022 Home Measurement in accordance with American National Standards Institute estimates the interior square footage to be 3087. This property has been marketed for 95 days as 2425SF and new disclosure of the recent measurement of square footage is 2/3/23. Truly one of the most incredible values for this type of property in the area. Nestled just south of beautiful Wimberly, Texas this property allows for the lifestyle that so many people crave in this day and age. Country living on 10+ acres with access to all the modern amenities of San Marcos as well as the wine and water-hole culture of Wimberly. With an adorable, separate cottage guest suite just off the main home this property and no HOA restrictions this property allows for short term rentals should the new owner have an interest. Comparable cottage efficiencies with 1 bed and 1 bath were last reviewed in late October and the going daily rate was approximately $150/night especially with the cute courtyard, extra large bathtub and separate adjacent indoor hot tub building included as a part of the prospective short term rental. A guest experience could be created to include wine, snacks and incredible views of oak studded land off of the back porch. One should do their own due diligence when considering potential STR income given constantly changing market conditions. In addition,the property can also be used as a wedding venue and the current owner has in fact done just that numerous times. The home itself only has approximately 448SF of upstairs space which include 2 bedrooms, a full bathroom and a small open loft area, the balance of the total square footage is first floor. The wrap around patio has expansive wooden decking with views from nearly the full length of the back of the home. The master bedroom is neat, clean and spacious with a nice walk in closet and new carpet. Despite a significant decrease in price per sf, seller still asking $960k.
