Things you need to know

Ideal Fredericksburg location.

Super convenient and excellent location with close proximity to groceries, fuel, downtown shopping and local eateries.

Taxes for 2023 were approximately $2,787.34

One word, two syllables... GOR•GEOUS! Let’s just say this place is pampered. I’m talking, the owner has literally indulged in every attention-to-detail aspect of this property and has spoiled the land with such love and care that you won’t be able to find anything wrong with the place. It’s been given the special treatment and has been made into a place so spectacular, its your home and vacation all-in-one. Everything is pristine and up-kept—“mint-condition” land.

The yard, always kept mowed, trimmed and immaculate.

A 10± acre fenced field is an excellent spread for keeping and raising animals or growing small acreage crops. Good pasture land with great soils.

The river area is a scene from a canvas marked with the strokes of a painter’s brush. The river banks are littered with beautiful hardwoods and covered with grassy blankets. Various shades of greens and seasonal foliage. Stunning sunsets reflect off the waters. Natural and tranquil environment, native pasture.

So how do you pronounce Pedernales exactly? [PUR-de-NAL-iss] The name coming from a Spanish word describing the flint rocks that characterize the riverbeds. This property boasts BOTH SIDES OF THE PEDERNALES RIVER, an exceptional rarity to be treasured! Lots of history runs along this river as you can find to be an interesting read through online research. Approximately 1,900 feet of optimal frontage on BOTH sides—so, multiply that by two and you have a total of 3,800± feet of frontage...beautiful frontage. Fish, swim, play, relax...

There is one water well on the property. In 2020, a new submersible 1 HP water pump was installed at approximately 120± feet down. The pairing of a Culligan brand water softener with a reverse osmosis treatment system, distributes the best quality water for the house and protects your equipment and fixtures. In addition to all the fixings for good quality water supply, the property has a 2,500± gallon water storage tank—lots of extra water.

Magazine-worthy curb appeal.

Master Bedroom

Like the rest of the home and it’s original construction, the master bedroom and bathroom have both undergone a major overhaul. A super comfortable and cozy en-suite with a pretty cool setup.

Master Bathroom

Its like walking into that GORGEOUS bathroom you saw in a magazine or that image you saved to your BATHROOM BOARD on Pinterest. Ladies... you’re going to love it! A beautifully stained barn door opens to great counterspace and a large lengthy mirror to match—and that’s just the start of it. As seen in the images, your eyes probably went right to the full stone accent wall and the cast-iron soaker tub with hand-held showerhead, which makes it super convenient for cleaning, by the way. Relax and unwind with a glass of wine, candles lit, lights down low... p e a c e a n d q u i e t . Ok, moving on—the full-tile shower is nice and roomy, no elbow bumping. Niches for convenient shampoo and soap shelving. Built-in makeup vanity and seating area for those tedious makeovers or simple daily routine.
