I have decided that we have had our last ice storm of the season. That’s it. Over and done with.

On Saturday, I clipped my poor daffodils and hyacinths for a meager bouquet to keep me feeling spring-y through the arctic cold. Those poor flowers are so confused!

Bluebonnets are on my brain, and I cannot wait to head to the Hill Country and enjoy them busting out this spring. So when I heard that this Bluffview beauty at 8511 Bluebonnet was hitting MLS SOON, I had to take a look/see. A beautiful, WARM, traditional home!

I mean, our weather is like New England, why not have a New England-style house?

You get a little more than on-half acre (.6), and a whopping 6,800 square feet with six bedrooms, including a downstairs master, six full baths, two half baths, a study with bar, three fancy living areas, a three car garage, full quarters and a porch deck with pool. Asking is $1,375,000, will be listed any minute now with John Weber of Dave Perry-Miller.

I mean, this house just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy when my house is still freakin’ cold. And then, can you imagine the possibilities of planting bluebonnets on Bluebonnet?8511_BlueBonnet_HickmanWeberGroup-4(1)8511_BlueBonnet_HickmanWeberGroup-3(1)
