Casa Estrella + Custom House shaped like the Lone Star!
Here is your chance to own a custom built home shaped like the symbol of the Great State of Texas, the Lone Star! This beautiful home sits onto 429 +/- acres located in Hamilton County.
Main House: The house was designed and built by architect Douglas Mehrens of Cerrillos, NM. The entire structure is metal, steel beams and pipes compose the frame with metal studs used inside. The home is approx. 4945 sq.ft and the main living area is 3695 sq. ft., there is approx. 2295 sq. ft. of concrete porches. There are 6 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms.
The only wood inside the home was used on the ceiling and reclaimed wood floors. The wood used for the ceilings and floors is over 200 years old purchased from a demolition company in Dallas who recycle materials. The beautiful point that makes up the center of the Lone Star is a skylight that is 21 feet above the floor and surrounded by tongue and groove stained wood. The exterior of the home is stucco.
There are 2 main entrances, the front door, and the mudroom door. Use the front door unless you're dirty, wet or muddy in which case use the mudroom door, throw your dirty clothes in the washer, and take a shower right there to keep dirt and mud out of the main part of the house. The home has panoramic views from the kitchen, living room and outside patio area. There is plenty of room to entertain your family or guests in the large open concept kitchen with Viking appliances, dining and living area. Enjoy the patios free of mosquitos, flies and other flying insects because of the misting system that surrounds the exterior of the house. Set it to come on automatically at certain times or use the remote control for on-demand misting. The system uses non-toxic Chrysanthemum oil as the active ingredient. The flower beds around Casa Estrella have an automatic watering system.
