Welcome to Twin Oaks Ranch! This 220-acre ranch has been in the same family for over 150 years and is located on Rocky Creek, where historians say Sam Houston and his troops once spent the night. Twin Oaks Ranch is located centrally between Houston, Austin & San Antonio, near the charming communities of Schulenburg and Hallettsville. Close enough for easy weekend getaways, but a serene country setting that feels far from the city. Rolling hills with mature live oak trees and three ponds, along with woods and prairies for exploring, hunting and fishing. The property includes a beautiful custom Ranch House with a pool, a lovely Guest House, and an Event Space for entertaining friends and family.
The Main House
A 2030 sq. ft. 2 bed 2 bath custom Ranch home, with a beautiful views overlooking the pool, mature live oaks and a 2-acre stocked lake. Covered front and back 15 ft porches and a cool breezeway for lovely outdoor living space. An attached 2 car oversized garage/shop with plenty of room for your tractor and “toys”. An additional 24'x'21 shop garage behind the house with 2 roll up doors and carport for additional vehicle storage or hobby space. A large deck on top of an ancient oak tree provides a unique view of the property and a spectacular place to watch the wildlife and stars in the evenings. (The Ranch is in a "dark sky area" of Texas and wonderful for stargazing)
The Guest House
A lovely renovated farmhouse, originally built over 100 years ago and relocated to the Ranch. The Guest House offers a private setting, with shiplap walls and ceilings, longleaf pine floors, and 1 & 1/2 baths. One large bedroom on the first floor and a fun "flop room" upstairs in the reclaimed attic, with a lower ceiling, perfect for a slumber party or a crash spot for kids, with space for multiple beds. The full bath is on-suite to the master bedroom, with double sinks, a soaking tub, and separate shower. An on-demand water heater ensures plenty of hot water. The wrap-around porch overlooking the pond and island is a great place to enjoy morning coffee or watch the sunset. There is also a 6'x24' studio building behind the guest house that could be used for a bunk room or an office.
