Solid 4BR-2 1/2 Bath stone/frame split-level house with pool is in excellent shape, but real value is in the land. 1.72 acres on a portion of Bee Creek which has water year-round most years. UT Professor of Botany Guy Thompson and his wife Eileen first saw this remarkable property in 1967; they bought it immediately, and by 1968 they had built their house and moved in. Their three children all agree this was a unique and magical place in which to spend a childhood. The Thompsons treated this property as a nature preserve, with plantings, trails, cliffs, and springs making the land here seem far from civilization. Bee Creek is a prominent part of the view from the back porch and patio. The house and pool are on the east side of the creek, which is in unincorporated Travis County. West side of the creek is in the City of West Lake Hills (no city taxes, though). At the rear of the property is a grotto (think miniature Hamilton Pool) which adds its own magic. This is truly a one-of-a-kind property which must be seen to be appreciated. One of only two properties that front on Shadybrook Cove.... Green, serene, secluded, private, quiet, and beautiful.
