If the thought of a spacious country homestead with a party barn and extra cottage sounds like a dream, it’s closer to reality than you think. Just a 25-minute drive up Highway 290 in the Waller County countryside is a five-acre property filled with oak trees, a cozy barn and a three-story home with a kitchen built for a chef. “It would be perfect for a large family or a retiree who just wants to be away from the hustle and bustle of the city,” says Cindy Ochsner, broker and owner of Cinderella Real Estate. The four-bedroom home features a commercial kitchen complete with double ovens, a gas stove, granite countertops and ample floor-to-ceiling cabinet space for storing spices and small appliances. Just a few steps from the home is a small barn and a mother-in-law cottage complete with a bathroom, living space and a large walk-in closet. CinderellaRealEstate.com 25602 Zube Rd.
