Located on the banks of the Pedernales River, only fifteen miles from Fredericksburg in Stonewall, is a charming old two-story limestone rock home. Upstairs above the homeowner’s home is “Heimplatz Am Fluss” which means “Homeplace on the River”. The home was built in 1880 by Henry Jacoby and bought by your hostess’ family in 1950. A great deal of work was done by the family toward the complete restoration of the upstairs suite.
Outside on the porch, the staircase leads guests to the upstairs suite. Original to the home is the porch, which has an unusually low roof. Inside are three rooms all with the original wood floors. A deep green floral rug attractively accents an antique love seat. A table for two is cozily situated in the corner and a family heirloom cabinet is used as storage for kitchen necessities. The kitchen also has a small refrigerator and coffeemaker.
Crocheted pillows and dust ruffle accent a queen-size bed topped with chenille spread. Antique dressers found in the bedroom are family keepsakes. The armoire, built by your hostess’ father in the early 40’s is wonderful for hanging clothes. The bath has a tub with shower.
Heimplatz is located two blocks from Highway 290 Wine Trail on the banks of the Pedernales River. While visiting this old German homestead enjoy the seasonal flower gardens so prevalent on the property.
