The bones of the Baer Barn B&B in Fredericksburg are steeped in history — the original structure was built in 1860. But this historical shelter has seen a little bit of new construction and a great deal of upgrading, making it a seamless combination of old and new.
The home sits on 4.81 acres of Hill Country land, just outside of the main part of Fredericksburg proper. Built of log, timber, and rock, the home and guest house would be a great income generator and also a great place to plan a day of wine tours and fine dining.
Listing agent Catherine Jeffrey of Absolute Charm Real Estate says the home is “a true gem of the Hill Country. Snagging the estate at 1348 Royal Oaks Loop would be “a chance to own a piece of Fredericksburg history,” she added.
And what a home it is. In the main house, the living room’s soaring vaulted ceilings and rock fireplace beckon for cozy winter nights, but feel light enough to still be welcoming in a hot Texas summer, too.
And this kitchen — spacious, completely updated with a Wolf cooktop and double ovens, a wine cooler, and a Subzero refrigerator, it’s also beautiful, with custom limestone countertops, hardwood floors, and gorgeous cabinetry.
The home boasts two master suites and two more bedrooms in the main house. Downstairs also has a laundry room and full bath, plus a master suite with sitting room and updated master bath.
A guest house offers a private retreat with a small sitting room and a loft bedroom. And outside the two abodes? This historical shelter has plenty of lush Hill Country views for miles.
