Kiss the clouds from this lofted apartment soaring above a repurposed horse barn. Austin Software entrepreneur, Steven Ray, built this cozy 576 sq ft hideaway on the gated Hudson Bend Ranch as a retreat from civilization. Total privacy, surrounded by natural hill country vegetation in all directions, you might not want to ever leave, unless you want to encounter humans.

The space
Have morning coffee on the covered deck as you gaze over the tree tops facing the rising sun. Listen to birds sing and watch Mr Roadrunner and family take dust baths as the day begins. Retreat to the full kitchen for home cooked breakfast and watch a little breaking news on the 49 inch flat screen with sound bar.

As the Texas sun starts to heat up, enjoy a cool retreat as central air doesn’t escape this fully foam insulated structure. Watch the game, veg on the couch, surf the web on hi speed internet, or just enjoy the complete privacy and safety of this one of a kind getaway.

As the sun starts to set, fire up the Coleman gas grill located in the large oaks in your own private courtyard located in massive oak trees down below. Enjoy the soft hue set off by 100 foot of led string lights. Entertain friends and family with plenty of parking to go around.

Guest access
Access includes safe, secure onsite parking for 4 vehicles. Use the washer/dryer downstairs as needed. Roam the ranch and take in wildflowers and native vegetation left to nature,s design.

I have lived in Hudson Bend for 35 years and am now on my third house in the area. I built Hudson Bend Ranch to take advantage of the natural beauty the site offered. I am passionate about the environment, keeping my footprint small, and giving back to nature as I can. Hudson Bend Ranch is a Backyard Wildlife Habitat, Audubon Society member, and belongs to the National Wildlife Federation. We use no pesticides, herbicides, nor high voc compounds. The lush landscape is built by nature from indigenous plants that survive the Texas weather. Our wildflowers, trees, birds, and critters are all happy and I guarantee you will walk away from Hudson Bend Ranch happier than when you arrived.
