Welcome to 1884 Ranch, a stunning piece of history nestled just 7 miles outside of Boerne, Texas off of Ammann Road. Built by the Schwarz Family in 1884, this home has been lovingly restored to preserve its original charm while offering all the comforts of modern living sure to accommodate. The real magic of this property is its connection to the past as you take a step back in time with the main house being constructed from limestone off the ranchette. The original pit they pulled the limestone from is now the property's 0.9 acre spring fed lake.
Pulling into the privately built custom entrance, you'll quickly discover why it's one of the most unique ranchettes available in the surrounding area. Wandering down the paved entrance of the 1884 Ranch, you'll notice the large, majestic oak trees that dot the landscape. These towering ancient giants offer shade and shelter to your horses and other livestock, creating a peaceful and natural environment that's perfect for riding, training, or simply enjoying the beauty of the Texas countryside in the heart of Boerne, Texas. The pasture is scattered with desirable grazing capabilities and has been improved to a tee with Bermuda and Coastal. 1884 Ranch is supplied by a water well on site with a large storage tank that has strategic valves in place to run water to different troughs and to the lake on the property.
Living in a historical home like 1884 Ranch offers a wealth of benefits that simply can't be replicated in a modern house. From the rich history and character of the property to the unique design features and materials that were used in its construction, every aspect of this home has a story to tell- especially the in-ground wine cellar! The main home boasts 4,500 sq feet accompanied by 3 beds & 3 baths with upstairs office space!
You'll feel a deep sense of pride knowing that you're preserving a piece of Texas history, and you'll enjoy the unique perspective that living in a home that's more than a century old can provide.
But that's just the beginning. Historical homes often offer a level of craftsmanship and attention to detail that's hard to find in modern construction, with features like original hardwood floors, ornate woodwork, and ceilings that simply can't be replicated today.
And if you're someone who appreciates the unique character and charm of an older home, you'll love the way that every room tells its own story. From the welcoming office to the richly detailed dining room, each space offers a glimpse into the past and a chance to experience the beauty of a bygone era.
Other improvements to the 1884 Ranch include a spacious, 2,700 sq foot 2 bed 2 bath guest house that offers the flexibility for guests or family gatherings! This cozy home boasts an outdoor patio on the second floor overlooking the pastures offering a calm breeze! If more room is needed for a foreman or potential overflow from gatherings, there is a 3-car garage converted into a 1,000 sq foot apartment that would also make for an excellent game room or man-cave! The 1884 Ranch is split into 4 different pastures to be able to move your livestock over the property to prevent overgrazing.
