General InfoType: House
Life is peaceful along the San Marcos River. Horses and cattle roam the green pastures, while the river winds its way slowly through the Texas prairie. Here you’ll find a fully furnished three-bedroom, two bath ranch home, newly remodeled and perfect for executive or family corporate rental. It’s less than an hour's drive - equally distant - between Austin and San Antonio, meaning you can work or play in both cities easily from this central vantage.
Located in a quiet and safe neighborhood nearby the city of San Marcos and deep in the heart of Texas, this ranch style family home is big and bright. Natural tile and wood floors, pendant and track lighting in recessed ceilings, and solid-wood furniture highlight a home where every room is thoughtfully outfitted and decorated with your comfort in mind. The soft sofas of the living room frame a rustic treasure chest coffee table, but the real treasure is finding this wonderful home. A large LCD TV with cable and Wi-Fi awaits your surfing and enjoyment. You may be tempted by the screened and covered patio with a pair of rocking chairs to settle into and enjoy the wide backyard vistas. If there’s any stress remaining, the new private hot tub will do the trick. Head out a bit further and have a meal on the patio furniture or wander down to the tree-lined river and listen to it weave its way through these parts. If you get hungry, a huge kitchen is equipped with glass-front cabinetry, gas stove, and stainless steel appliances that will make cooking a joy. A solid wood dining table seating six makes for an elegant place to eat. The bedrooms feature king and two queen beds among neutrals and browns that coordinate perfectly. Everything is bigger in Texas; and that includes the master bath with its large walk-in tiled shower, and there’s a giant walk-in closet too.
San Antonio boasts a diverse economy ranging from tech firms like Rackspace, the Southwest Research Institute and Applied Research, excellent medical facilities such as the Methodist Healthcare System, the Baptist Health System, and Christus Santa Rosa Health Care, and Lackland Air Force Base, Fort Sam Houston, and Randolph Air Force Base representing the military. That isn’t all; as H-E-B, USAA, Cullen/Frost Bankers, CPS Energy, Toyota, ATT, Clear Channel, Boeing, Valero, Tesoro, CST Brands, and IHeartMedia all have large presences here due to its favorable tax situation and central location. Unemployment was below the state average at 3.7% compared to 4.6%, signaling a strong local economy.
Austin is also a major economic hub in Texas. Just downtown features large and influential companies like Deloitte, AT&T, the State of Texas Capitol, Whole Foods, HomeAway, Silicon Labs, Wells Fargo, St. David’s Healthcare, Bank of America, Netspend, Teacher Retirement System, JP Morgan Chase, Facebook, Cirrus Logic, and the University of Texas. There’s even a future Google Campus coming to downtown!
Locally, the San Marcos River is a destination for many around these parts, and people love to float lazily down it, enjoy picnics and barbecues, and enjoy the quiet life here. San Marcos is also home to a couple of major outlet malls, so shopping will be convenient. Local breweries and mouthwatering Texas barbecue and Tex-Mex are also around and worth more than one visit. If you’re up for adventure, Texas is one of the best states for a road trip, and from this home you’re also three hours from Houston and similarly far from Dallas; so there’s almost no place in the Lone Star State you can’t explore from this peaceful family home on the banks of the San Marcos.
