Georgetown, Texas
Deep in the heart of Texas, down a country lane, this home was designed around gorgeous hundreds of year old live oak trees by famed TX landscape artist C. P. Montague. It is constructed of river rock, picked up at the river on the property by the artist and her husband, also hand-laid by them. There are two interior rock fireplace walls with working fireplaces, firewood provided. The home is about 2,400 sq. ft. with large open living areas and two large, master bedroom suites. One has a beautiful Texas river landscape mural painted above the square tub by the artist. The second has a very large walk-in shower. The main living area has a large screen HDTV. You won't mind being in the fully furnished kitchen as you enjoy the spectacular view out the wall of windows above the sink, overlooking the upper patio and the lower terra... Read more

Interaction with guests
I love meeting and visiting with guests, but let the guests set the tone/time. The evening of your arrival I will bring down a batch of freshly bakes from-scratch muffins of your choice. You may choose from Banana (with or without pecans), Blueberry, Chocolate Chip (with or without pecans), or Snickerdoodle. They are great for breakfast! Hint: warm them in the microwave 10 - 15 seconds to bring all the flavors out. I love giving free tours of the farm in a Polaris. I can show you the river, hiking areas, farm animals and give you a general lay of the land for when you want to trek about on your own. Just let me know if/when you would like a tour.

I am glad Rocky Overlook worked so well for Katie's wedding celebration. The huge live oak trees made the perfect canopy for their catered dinner and dancing. I understand they all went down to play in the river several times the next day between playing...More

Oddly located near a neighborhood, yet far enough away and once inside you feel quite secluded as the area of the house which is most used is enclosed by trees, flowers and lush underbrush and plantings. The Great Room and Kitchen give you an almost...More

Georgetown is becoming a destination location. We have so many good restaurants around and just off the "Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas", live music can be found in one of the restaurants almost every night of the week, and the Blue Hole lagoon just...More
