Hardy Creek Estate
Located in Rusk County, Hardy Creek Estate is a rare combination of proximity to and seclusion from town. Enclosed by a wooded property line and accessed by private road, the 15 +/- acre estate provides beautiful views from every corner. A variety of Oaks, Pine, Pecan, Sycamore and Bodark provide diversity in the backdrop to the native grasses that spill over the 25+/- feet of varying topography. Although it gives the peaceful feeling of being miles from the nearest city, you are just a short walk from downtown Henderson, Texas. This generational family property has evolved into a glamorous, yet relaxing oasis.
The Hardy Creek Estate has been in the family for decades. Originally constructed in 1965 with 5,163 square feet, the 5 bedroom 3.5 bath home was designed by San Antonio architect Craig Allen. The Glass Room, a 1972 addition by the original architect, was opened to the kitchen in the 2003 renovation creating a singular space and casual social hub of the home with expansive views of back patio, pool, pool house and the back pastures framed by wooded property line. The two-story house has an abundance of room for family and friends. Located on the main floor is the front hall dividing formal living and dining with kitchen accessed by butler door, glass room, library, home office, laundry, workroom, mudroom, guest bedroom and bath. Three car carport located off mudroom. Fireplaces located in both living and library. A split staircase divides the first and second floors with access from the front hall or kitchen. While the first floor is all about entertaining, the second floor is all family, 3 large bedrooms and 2 baths, including the primary, with a fourth room currently in use as fitness space.
Additional attributes to the home include limestone, hardwood and brick flooring, solid pine doors with custom trim, baseboard, and crown moldings. There is structured wiring throughout the house, centralized audio, security system with exterior cameras.
The home's roof was replaced in 2018. The original upstairs windows were replaced, and plantation shutters were added in 2020. Landscaping has been recently updated as well.
