According to the survey, there are approximately 1,171.10 feet of frontage on Rocky Creek. The property includes a Main House with a pool, a Guest House, an Event Space with a commercial kitchen, and an apartment. 

Event Space Area

They have invited different artists from all over Texas to entertain their friends and guest in a 3,000-square-foot event space they built in 2019. For the entertainer, this space is perfect for hosting events, family get-togethers, or taking it to a commercial level and creating a wedding venue or something similar. The event space has a full commercial kitchen with everything you need to run it as a restaurant or catering business. If you love to cook and entertain this is your 2nd home on the ranch.

When you wake up head to your 24'x'21 shop garage behind the house with 2 roll up doors and lean to awning and start your day by going for a ride in your ATV of choice to check up on your ranch and get that time to think about how wonderful it is to have your piece of Texas.
