A beautiful and uniquely historic Texas ranch and mansion is now up for sale in the Lockhart area. The stunning home sits on several acres and is over 15 thousand square feet. Besides the home’s aesthetic appeal, it’s also known for being the entertaining hotspot for hordes of famous people.

Andy Griffith, Debbie Reynolds, Florence Henderson, Ruta Lee, Ruth Buzzi and Phyllis Diller are just some of the property’s notable guests. With this in mind, the home’s history alone has to be a big factor int he price.
The Lockhart ranch has also been used in several films and TV shows like Dusk till Dawn, Leftovers, Revolution, Machete, Where the Heart Is and Fast Food Nation.
The seven bedroom home is exquisite in every way. The detailing in the construction is truly breathtaking.
The home defines rustic elegance with high ceiling and wood beams throughout. Many of the doorways in the home are a towering nine-feet tall and carved by craftsmen from Mexico.
