This one-of-a-kind pueblo-style all-rock ranch house was built in 1938 by then- San Antonio Mayor McGown as a cattle ranch retreat. The home was designed to mimic San Antonio's Governor's Palace (aka, 'the Presidio') and, thus, looks much older than its mere eighty years. Unique 1930s tiles abound throughout as do old-world Mexican doors, high concrete-planked ceilings, one-foot-thick limestone walls, two Kiva-style rock fireplaces, two hearth-styled rock fireplaces, along with two spacious and modern house additions. The home has been completely updated with new thermal windows, window support timbers, modernized kitchen, four heat pump systems, and more. It comes with a spacious 3-car carport and cistern-belfry, 1950s fired tile-brick working barn, windmill, horse barb-less wire fencing with round pen (a perfect horse property), tiled entrance-way, new driveway and sidewalk, and a Texas registered cave! Prayer nichos are tucked into almost every room with an original painting or two complimenting a Lady of the Guadalupe theme. Well lit. Highly safe. Quiet and serene with common Guadalupe River access. Outstanding schools. And a short ten-minute drive from downtown Boerne. Forty-five minutes to the River Walk, twenty-five minutes to La Cantera, forty minutes to the wine country, and forty-five minutes to Fredericksburg. There's room for a third bedroom addition and owners will throw-in their cute trailer as a guest house 'casita.' Once you see this Hill Country palace you will say, "Me amo este hogar."

  • Fraud & Scam Awareness
    Unfortunately, there are people that will use internet sites like to run all manner of scams on users. We do all that we can to prevent the willful misuse of our platform, however; every day, the scams get more and more sophisticated. We ask that our users be cognizant of the risk and review the following basic ways to recognize and avoid being scammed.
  • Recognizing and Avoiding Scams:

    • Use secure, traceable transactions when making payments - Do not pay a deposit by wire transfer, prepaid money card, gift card, or other non-traditional payment method. Also, refuse to make "overpayments" and never enter into "handshake" deals without a contract.
    • Don't accept suspect cashier/certified checks or money orders - Banks will process and cash the fakes, then hold you responsible.
    • Never give out financial or personally identifiable information - This includes banking and credit card information, your birthdate, Social Security/Social Insurance Numbers, PayPal account etc.
    • Suspicious communications - Watch for parties communicating using poor grammar, spelling or those who send nonsensical messages. Be wary of parties that are only willing to text/email and those that will never speak on the phone or that refuse to meet in person. Generally these people will claim to be "travelling" and unavailable to talk or located in a foreign country and unable to speak other than via text or email.
    • Deals Too Good to be True - If the list price is obviously too low, or the terms are too generous as compared to the market, it’s likely a scam.
    • Don’t be pressured to act immediately - Scammers typically try to make you think a listing is in high demand in order to push you into immediate action without consulting family, friends, or financial advisors. Say no to high pressure sales tactics.
