PROPERTY DETAILS



"Le Stelle" ranch, located in the heart of the picturesque Hill Country of Texas has rare and dramatic hilltop views which rival those of any national park. The 2880 sq. ft. mountain top main residence, in the Hill Country style of cedar and Texas limestone, has 455 sq.ft. of porches positioned for the 360° views. The property has numerous building sites for any expansion on the 143+- acres. A 1,140 sq.ft. guesthouse in the woods offers peace and quiet.
Another component on this property,  unusual in the area is a 12,000+- sq.ft. structure - with a tastefully lit showroom with offices, workshops, two bathrooms and a kitchen, with 3 HVAC systems and 220 electric. This could be a ideal gallery for artwork or car collections, a warehouse, sound studio or industrial space - or a wine production or tasting facility, particularly now that the area between Johnson City and Fredericksburg is being touted as the "next Napa."

Just outside Johnson City, Flat Creek Road is located at 290 just west of Johnson City where the Vineyard of Florence owns the corner property, and it routes to Rocky Road which connects with 290 again closer to Fredericksburg.

The property is fenced and power gated. Wildlife exemption is in place. Wildlife has been supported, not hunted. Two seasonal ponds.

This ranch was owned at one time by President Johnson.  The home (built in 1997) and then additional property was acquired by Italian artist Benini who dedicated the structures and the grounds to the fine arts.

Just 51 miles to the airport in Austin, 60 miles to the airport in San Antonio and 25 miles to Fredericksburg. Neighbors are the upscale Preserve at Walnut Springs, the Bamberger Preserve and friendly ranchers.
