Tucked privately on the pinnacle of a gently curving landscape in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, this nearly 14-acre, environmentally-conscious Gentleman's Ranch in Dripping Springs' sought-after Madrone Canyon emanates contemporary cowboy nostalgia complemented by 360-degree panoramic views. From the moment you enter the property's softly meandering drive, you'll feel a refreshingly calm connectivity to the natural elements around you. From unparalleled painted-sky sunsets that spark memories of laughter with loved ones on the enormous, wrap-around deck, to the front door that welcomes you on a storied journey of a thousand views from every vantage point within the home, this Barley|Pfeiffer Architecture residence centers around a certain oneness with nature. Step inside, and the strikingly handsome beamed ceilings and Texas stone accents emphasize this refined ranch's easygoing personality. From the relaxed living space with its wall of windows to the equally panorama-equipped dining area and gourmet kitchen nearby, the interior spaces are simply destined for entertaining. Occupying an entire corner of the home with views that spill out over the deck, the chef's kitchen has undergone an incredible renovation, sure to dimple the cheeks of any culinary aficionado. The sprawling Acacia quartz countertops join the imported Spanish tile backsplash in a culmination of muted-hue beauty, and the look is completed by the sleek white cabinetry with soft-close drawers, subdued undercabinet lighting, and underlit ceiling coves that serve to brighten the kitchen space further. Meanwhile, the multi-purpose tiered island is home to several stainless steel appliances, including the Thermador cooktop and oven, Jenn-Aire secondary oven, and Thermador vent hood, along with a convenient casual eating bar. The built-in Thermador refrigerator and dishwasher complete the appliance package and make entertaining a Hill Country breeze. A pristine sanctuary among the towering treetops of the property's many oaks, the owner's retreat is reminiscent of an undiscovered treehouse tucked privately away from the hustle and bustle of life. Savor the views, and then soak up the recently overhauled his-and-hers closets and dressing areas that cater to the allure of impeccably-organized fashion. The ensuite features double sinks, soaking tub, and separate shower, all encased in tile reminiscent of the pristine waters of neighboring Flat Creek. Connected by the screened-in porch and breezeway, the guest house is the perfect private respite for visitors, complete with 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, living room, and a well-equipped kitchenette. Step outside, and select which outdoor entertaining area suits your fancy. From the wrap-around deck and sheltered Texas stone patio, to the large screened porch with skylight, memories will be made here! With nearly 400 feet of Flat Creek frontage that traverses the gently sloped hills below, you'll catch a glint of the soft sage-colored waters from your apex perch, and the spontaneous deck just above the shoreline will soon become a favorite spot for reconnecting with your surroundings. Or, follow one of the several footpaths on the property to the sparkling gunite/concrete pool, complete with a waterfall/diving platform and a picnic area shaded by a canopy of mature oak trees. Be sure to stop and enjoy the beautiful indigenous fowl, all where a wildlife bird exemption remains in place on the property. Step back, and you'll notice the uniqueness of the soothing angled gables of the metal roof. With this residence, there is always intentionality behind what you see, and the 6,000-square-foot expanse of roof coverage on the main home, garage/guest home, and rain barn feed a 30,000-gallon rainwater collection system housed in 3 10,000-gallon fiberglass tanks. Constructed in 2020, the workshop includes a 24x30 footprint, a 15x25 carport, and is wired for 220-volt.
