Own a true piece of Texas history. Totaling 5.62 acres and full of majestic oak trees, the Fenley Homestead, built by Joel Fenley and wife Eliza Ann Ware Fenley - daughter of famed Captain William Ware, were some of the first buildings built in the Sabinal Canyon. Constructed in approximately 1872 with local river rock, the homestead was built with survival in mind as the property sits in the canyon with the hills surrounding affording views of any approaching Natives. The home, which still has its dirt floors, features a dog trot/run through the center of the home that allows the wind to move swiftly through the structure. Two additional cabins are located on the property. One cabin is a 2 bed, 1.5 bath with living and kitchen areas that could be ideal for a weekend retreat. The second cabin offers old character and rustic charm but will need to be rebuilt before occupancy. Numerous 19th-century artifacts have been found on the property. Enjoy the hill country views from the porch of your future dream home and take in the sunset overlooking the Links of Utopia. Unique opportunity to own a rare piece of land in the heart of Utopia located within 5 minutes of the spring-fed waters in Utopia Park which offers recreational swimming/kayaking and a short 20 minutes to either Garner State Park or Lost Maples State Natural Area.
