Born as a result of the division of the 208 acre La Bonne
Vie Ranch, this 49.8 acre parcel has been created by taking advantage of some of the natural contours of the
ranch and existing roadways to shape a user-friendly property for a variety of end users.
For years the lodge structure, of close to 9000 SF, has been used as the owner's corporate headquarters
and guest accommodations. Access to the property is from a paved county road and through a Mediterranean
style stucco, electronically controlled and gated, handsomely landscaped entry with continuing paved
driveway and parking area to the lodge.
Downstairs of the lodge features approximately 5000 SF of generously proportioned rooms with Saltillo
tile floors, tongue-and-grooved ceilings throughout as well as a full kitchen with an impressive limestone
fireplace with hand-carved mantel, two distinctive living areas and three full baths plus a half bath. The
design creates an ambiance of spaciousness and comfort to a degree rarely imagined in a guest house.
Upstairs is an open and well-lit space where the corporate offices were housed and which includes a
covered balcony, the perfect place from where to take in the view of the adjoining land. The panoramic views
of the countryside will inspire any mind. While mostly open space, there is another kitchen here as well as
additional fireplace. This configuration is ideal for family or corporate retreats and... how about a wine
tasting room for your winery?
Speaking of a winery, an Assistant Professor and extension specialist (pomology & viticulture has visited
the property and indicated that the meadow on this tract "would make a superior vineyard site...vineyard
sites don't get much better than that in the Hill Country".
Entertaining areas outside beginning with a long covered porch on the south side of the lodge, which
overlooks a half-basketball court, horseshoe alley, Texas-size outdoor grilling area along with serving
area, even a softball field is located between the gigantic cedar elm trees and boarding aside the seasonal
creek where you will have to share the field with the deer.
To fully appreciate the beauty of this slice of La Bonne Vie, step out at night under the stars to view
the best sky Fredericksburg can offer. This true gem of the Hill Country is offered
at $1,495,000 and shown by appointment only, contact Dennis Kusenberger at

LA BONNE VIE RANCH is being offered as approximately 82.5 acres (subject to
a new survey), which is being carved from the heart of 210 acres of prime SW Gillespie County gently rolling
terrain with fertile soils, a variety of tree cover with a long list of amenities, which a discriminating
buyer and their guests will admire and use for many years to come.
AS YOU ARRIVE at the entrance of the ranch, although you are on a county
road and about to cross a cattle guard with a massive masonry wall on either side, one is struck with the
impression that you are about to enter private estate lacking the gate. Once past that main entrance,
another smaller version appears and welcomes you to lush landscaping, which surrounds the home and frames
your approach to the residence.
AT THE CENTERPIECE of this showcase property, tucked away near the dead end
of that paved county road is this amazing, sprawling homestead, which was designed like a piece of fine art
and built around a pioneer, limestone 1800's home that was taken down to only some walls, which to this day
provide the charm of early Fredericksburg. With the addition of a soaring 20' ceiling in the greatroom, a
spiral masonry stairway to the upstairs library and a number of strategically placed windows showcasing
captivating views from within, will have you short of breath.
THE OPEN floorplan of the home will accommodate a large number of guests,
not to mention that the dining room will currently seat 12-14 guests. And just off the kitchen is a smaller
dining area to one side and the covered outdoor grilling area on the other. The temperature controlled wine
cellar is also accessed from the kitchen.
OTHER ENTERTAINMENT areas include several outdoor patio areas on the north
and south side of the home along with a large patio off the master suite to the east. Then you also have the
dining terrace on the east side of the home, which is complete with fireplace and another grill area where
you hear the gushing sounds from the fountain just down the way.
GUESTS that come to visit will have a couple of options for their stay.
Many of the owner's guests are avid RVers, so they built a covered facility with complete hookups that will
accommodate several RVs. Then there is also the nearby guesthouse, which is located atop a two stall horse
barn complete with tack and feed room and decorated in a western motif and has some outstanding views in all
IT IS NOT EVERY DAY you find a property that has your very own private
runway and hangar. We have 2,000' of paved runway here and if you like, there is ample room to park near the
ON EITHER SIDE of the runway are large open meadow areas comprised of rich
soils, which have been identified by Texas A & M University's Viticulture department as "superior
vineyard sites...vineyard sites don't get much better than that in the Hill Country".
THIS portion of La Bonne Vie Ranch is being offer at a listing price of $2,250,000
and is shown by appointment only.
ALSO AVAILABLE IS an option to add an additional 25.7 acres to the west of
the home and Pfiester Road. Included in that package is a stunning, park-like setting, which features
regulation skeet and trap thrown from structures that house the automatic, remote controlled throwers and
the range overlooks a pond. Naturally there is a cantina ideal for severing your guests and massive stand-at
tables for dining.
BECAUSE the current owner is an avid bird hunter, he is required to have
some fine, well trained dogs, which are kept in a first class kennel facility near the shooting range. A
water well is located on this tract that serves the kennel and cantina.
IN THE EVENT the purchaser of the main home elects not to add this tract to
their purchase, this parcel will be available after the close on the main home for $650,000.
