NY Times Notices Fredericksburg TX Properties Strike a Balance

NY Times Notices Fredericksburg TX Properties Strike a Balance

It took an outsider to notice the yin yang balance around Fredericksburg TX properties and capture it in some poetic phrases.  Heart of Texas Hill Country, we say.  Jeannie Ralston eloquently captured Fredericksburg in her The New York Times piece (05/16/13). It is like she described the seesaw of a quality lifestyle in Texas Hill Country, perfectly balanced at the fulcrum or “heart.”

  • “Cool mingles with tradition”
  • “Industriousness and idleness are equally esteemed values (depending on the time of day)
  • “Delicious tension between rural and refined”

Unique Fredericksburg TX Properties with Lots Going On

fredericksburg tx propertiesFolks around Fredericksburg place great value on uniqueness, creativity, the one-of-a-kind brand that can be found nowhere else.  So they choose from quite a selection of historic homes, farms and ranches or modern cottages and custom estates in the Fredericksburg Texas real estate market.  Many of these properties are reinvented into quaint and charming businesses.

As Ralston notes, “Inns and restaurants are bringing a clever touch to Loan*hospitality and mythology, and with the vineyards and boutique farms (lavender, olives), some people make comparisons to Napa Valley or even Provence.”

The New York Times articles points to several fine Texas experiences around Fredericksburg.  Enchanted Rock is a huge pink granite mound near town. Pedernales Falls State Park features the river as it rumbles down limestone outcroppings into aquamarine pools. Luckenbach, made famous by Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings, is a laid-back country music mecca along FM 1376.  A tour of Lyndon B. Johnson State Park is minutes away in Stonewall.
