Country Living Close to Town: This stunning 83.57 acre estate with 3 houses is in a great location and offers recreational opportunities seldom found in a place this size and so close to a major city. There is approximately ½ mile of Medina River frontage. The river is wide and deep most of the way, but there is also a section that shallows up with some small rapids. This section of the river flows consistently even during dry times. The river is easily accessible and has multiple areas where you can drive a vehicle or an ATV to the edge of the river to enjoy fishing or swimming. This property also includes two private lakes that are spring and river-fed and stay consistently full. The largest lake is about 27 acres in size and deep enough to ski on, with depths ranging from about 8 to 20 feet, while the second lake is about 8 acres. Both lakes offer fantastic fishing and hold trophy bass and catfish, as well as ducks during the season.
Location: 13447 Macdona-LaCoste Rd, approximately 21 miles southwest of downtown San Antonio in Bexar County. Macdona-LaCoste is a paved, well-maintained country road. The property is 4 miles west of Loop 1604 and 3.4 miles east of La Coste, and has easy access into San Antonio via IH 35 or Hwy 90. Downtown San Antonio is only 20 minutes away, and the Medical Center is about 30 minutes away.
Description: This beautiful property has a combination of open and improved pasture with majestic Oaks and large Pecan trees throughout, as well as other native trees that create good cover for wildlife. There is a road system with a drivable dam between the large and small lakes and a road through primarily native pasture along the river. Vegetation includes Live Oak, Post Oak, Hackberry, Pecan, Wild Persimmon, Mesquite, and Cypress.
There are three houses on the upper part of the property. The houses are not directly on Macdona-LaCoste Rd, but set back for greater privacy and accessed by two private roads. This upper part consists of approximately 15 acres, with around 9 acres of hay pasture. The newest house, the main house, overlooks the river and lakes, and was built in 2004. Besides the recreational possibilities, this property could also generate income. Live in one house and rent the others out, or make this amazing property your own private, family retreat. The property is also suitable for agricultural purposes, such as horses, cows, goats, chickens, etc.
Main House: The main home, built in 2004, is modern and energy efficient. The 2,120 square foot home is constructed of 4 poured concrete domes with stucco siding over the cement walls inside and out. The concrete roof is covered in dirt and grass and also has 32 solar panels with an 8kw system. The temperature in the home, because of its construction, stays very consistent and is very energy efficient. In spring and fall, when temperatures are moderate, the 8kw solar panels power the whole house and often generate surplus electricity that is sold back on the electrical grid. During hot summer months the solar panels generate sufficient electricity to greatly reduce the electric bills. The home has an open floor plan with a split layout consisting of 3 bedrooms, 2 .5 baths, and an office. Because of the dome construction, interior ceilings are 12 feet at the peak. One of the best things about this home is the view, which must be seen to be believed. Each bedroom and the living room have windows with views of the lakes and river. The home has tile floors throughout, custom cabinets, and quartz counter tops. The master bath has a Jacuzzi tub and separate tile walk in shower. The guest bath has a tub/shower combo that is also all tile. In addition, both baths have quartz counter tops and custom cabinets. There is an additional all-tile shower in the garage. The home also has a side privacy fenced yard for pets.
Home #2, the Ranch House: This 2,215 Square foot home is constructed of concrete cinder blocks with a stucco finish and a composition shingle roof. The home has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths (note: bath off master bedroom only has a shower) with a living room, kitchen, mud room, and a large sunroom. The home has central air and heat, and an attached, over-sized two car garage. In the front of the house is a covered porch with pleasant views nestled among majestic oak trees. There is a large tree house in one of the biggest oak trees, and mature pecan trees on the back-side of the house.
Home #3, the White House: This is a 1,200 square foot wood-framed home with 2 bedrooms and 1 full bathroom, large kitchen, large utility room, and living room. The covered front porch is shaded by mature pecan trees, and with large oak trees surrounding the house, it is a truly beautiful setting. The house features central air and heat. There is also a carport garage that is enclosed on 3 sides.
Behind and between House #2 and #3 is a center aisle barn with a lean-to off of one side that is great for storing equipment, feed, or other supplies.
