New price and now being offered turnkey! Furniture, appliances, linens, kitchenware, tractor and other equipment!!! Call today to see this spectacular country estate located in New Ulm, which offers the flexibility of an extraordinarily luxurious second or primary home, or perhaps a corporate retreat campus, only one hour west of Houston. Sited to capture magnificent views, The Belvedere Retreat encompasses 94-plus acres of rolling terrain that feels much bigger with six stone-clad, Hill Country-style structures surrounded by grassy meadows, dense woods, a swift-flowing rocky creek, and a secluded outdoor chapel.
Designed by noted Houston architect Ed Eubanks and built by Thielemann Construction, the estate provides a total of 12-plus bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and three half-bathrooms. The Keep (5967 sf), positioned at the heart of the compound, serves as the primary gathering place. Flanked by the Master Retreat and the Guest House, The Keep provides an inviting front porch; soaring ceilings; expansive dining, media, and great rooms served by a professionally-equipped light-filled open kitchen/breakfast room with a catering area; a full bar; powder room; an estate office; laundry room; and a bunk room with full bathroom. Ed Eubanks’ signature reclaimed architectural elements and doors combine with Saltillo tile and wide-plank hardwood floors to enhance the spaces. Outside amenities include an extensive sheltered summer kitchen, bar, and living area adjoining the resort-style heated pool and firepit; a two-car-plus carport; a sport court; and additional parking areas edged into the woods.
Just steps from The Keep, the one-story Master Retreat (1281 sf) offers luxury and seclusion. Reserved as the compound’s main bedroom suite, the Master Retreat offers a spacious sitting room; kitchenette/coffee bar; serene bedroom; lavishly-appointed bathroom; and an expansive walk-in closet equipped for a stacked washer and dryer.
The two-story Guest House provides a kitchenette, laundry, two large bedrooms with sitting areas and walk-in closets, and a spacious, light-filled Hollywood bathroom on the first floor; and two additional bedrooms and a Hollywood bathroom on the second floor.
The Library (462 sf), an Italian-inspired structure with an octagonal cupola and massive reclaimed antique doors, offers a light-filled gathering space that would also serve well as a wine room with dining area or as an office. Amenities include floor-to-ceiling bookcases and tall windows; window seats; and a half bathroom.
Boasting fine views of rolling hills and a nearby pond, the Barndominium (2480 sf) served as home-base for the owners while the estate’s main living structures were under construction The Barndominium may serve as a stand-alone residence or additional guest quarters and includes a double-height equipment barn, tool room, flex room, and a half-bathroom on the first floor; and a spacious, open living/dining/kitchen area, three bedrooms, and a large Hollywood bathroom on the second floor.
Positioned near the gated entrance to the estate, the Caretaker’s Cottage (1592sf) serves as the property manager’s residence and provides covered porches, two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and a carport.
