As I was going about my normal routine of browsing the MLS for cool garage properties (“Collector Homes”) around Austin, I stumbled upon 3424 FM 696 Lexington, TX 78947.  Not only is there a 3,000 square foot garage, but there’s a three thousand square foot garage. That’s right. THREE. THOUSAND. Square feet. That’s one thousand square feet more than the living quarters in this home. Which, I may add, is finished out beautifully and with high-end furnishings throughout. This is my kind of house!

    Ok, so it’s about forty-five minutes outside of Austin, no immediate deal killer for me. I’d love to be outside of the hustle and bustle of Austin while it grows at light speed. Bye-bye traffic and bye-bye construction cranes. It’s time for some simple living.  This leads me to the RV hookups.

Outside, next to the house is a matching storage shed with 50 amp electrical service and running water. There’s even a horse stable with 2 stalls, and the wrap-around porch on the main building makes this place appropriately suited for even the countriest of you folks.  If that’s even a real word. Countriest?

When I say this house checks almost all of the boxes for me, I mean it. If I didn’t already have a home that I love and a better half that won’t move outside of city limits, I’d be considering these eleven and a half acres on a much more serious level.

*Update* I toured this property with a client and the surrounding neighborhood is absolutely serene and beautiful.
