5136 FM 609

Newest listing in La Grange | Farmhouse on 4 + acres

I have driven by this home  at 5136 FM 609 in La Grange Texas for a number of years, and I have always loved how the massive grandfather oak seems to hug this lovely older farmhouse.  Nestled up on a rise it has some nice views.  The home needs some updating but what a fun project it would be.  There is a detached garage, and outbuildings.  Could be a great little gentleman’s farm where you could grow some fresh veggies and raise a few chickens for farm fresh eggs.   Far enough out in the country to live town behind and close enough to go north to 71 or south to I 10 to get anywhere in the state.  If you would like to see this property please give me a call!  I am a Buyer’s Agent, I live in Fayette County, and I would like to help you find the right property be it this or another!  Deb  512-743-0516

Coming Soon – Professional Horse Facility – La Grange Texas

Coming soon just miles outside of La Grange Texas, a professional cutting horse facility that is the home of Hickorys Peppy and PS Tell Grandma.  Along with acreage and a stocked private lake this horse facility has a main home approx 3500 sq. ft. that overlooks the pastures, pond and second barn,  there is a trainers home, and homes for ranch hands as well.  Currently these other residences are being leased out.  There is a great mix of native woods and improved pastures.  The two barns total 30 stalls and most of them have attached runs.  The barn by the main house has a breeding set up with dummy for collection.  There is a professional round pen with tall walls, great footing, and it is under roof with lights for training am/pm and in inclement weather.   This property will be priced in the mid 900’s.  If you are looking for a professional horse facility in Central Texas consider this investment.  It needs a little spit and polish but I don’t think you can buy or build facilities like this in Texas now  for under 1.5M!  If you would like more information please contact me directly Deb Dahlberg Rowland 512-743-0516.

La Grange County Courthouse

I love Fayette County for all the wonderful things it has to offer residents and visitors like the beautiful countryside, it’s historic cities and towns.  One historic city – La Grange – has a crowning jewel in it’s Square – The County Courthouse.

The Courthouse was built and completed towards the end of 1891 for an approximate cost of 99k.  The style is Romanesque Revival with a clock tower with a Seth Thomas clock and old bell,  and a  central courtyard that was later enclosed.

The stonework is amazing and utilizes blue sandstone from Muldoon, white limestone from Belton, and red limestone from Pecos.  The roof is Spanish tile with copper valleys.

Built in a flood plain ( no one is sure why…) the Courthous has survived a major flood back in 1913 and in the corridor you can see a mark identifying the height the flood waters reached.

If you are traveling to or through Fayette County or La Grange, the Courthouse should be on your list of things to do!  If you are looking for a Realtor to help you with Fayette County Real Estate please give me a call, I would love to help you Buy or Sell!

The Jersey Barnyard

A dear friend of mine told me about The Jersey Barnyard.

Not that I hadn’t seen the sign every day – twice a day – as I drove to and from our home in Fayetteville.  She told me that she shopped there regularly….for milk! Grade A Raw Jersey Milk!

Who knew?  I had seen the sign inviting the public to stop in and learn how to milk a cow, and had suggested that as one stop to add to our local to do/experience list.

So on my way home at just a few minutes to 6 pm one day I said “what the heck” and pulled in.  Curiosity got the best of me!  And, wow what a nice facility.  Clean, inviting, and at that time of night a little noisy  – it was feeding time and all the cows and calves were bawling for dinner!  The tractor and trailer with straw bale seats used for tours was parked for the night.  It looked like it would be fun to ride on.

The main single level building housed a store front that still had an open sign on, so in I went.  Boy am I glad I hadn’t taken in my purse.  So many wonderful goodies!  Raw milk, eggs, cheese, meats, and Chotskies of all kinds, and of course some Texas bling and swagger items.

I think that everyone should learn how to milk a cow!  And I think everyone needs to know where our food comes from.  Meats, dairy, grains.  Too many people don’t know the hard work that goes in to creating food.  This family run farm is a great place to educate yourself and your family on where milk comes from!

Put it on your list of to do stops when you are visiting or driving through Fayette County.  It is just a couple of short miles up FM 159/237 towards Round Top from Highway 71.
