Luxury Equestrian Properties in Texas
There are a large variety of horse properties in Texas listed in the Austin MLS residential system from one million to ten million or more in list price. Unfortunately, not every property is properly flagged as a potential horse property in the system so it’s important to find a Realtor® who specializes in horses. The year these homes were built ranges from the 1930’s to the present day, so if you are looking for historic or nearly new, there is a home for you. Horse Properties range in size from about 2,000 square feet to homes upwards of 15,000 square feet and have from 3 to 10 bedrooms. In Texas, you will find views of the Wild Basin Preserve, the San Gabriel River, the Lampasas River, Medina Creek, Onion Creek Valley, Onion Creek and other panoramic Hill Country Views as well as creek and river frontages! Many of these horse properties have nice swimming pools such as vanishing edge pools to cool off when it is just too hot to ride. If you love fine automobiles as well as fine equines, there are some equestrian estates with 7 to 9 car garages so there will be room for all your vehicles including your golf carts as well as Jet Skis.
