30th Annual Hill Country Home Tour

Thank you to everyone who made this year's home tour a huge success!

River Flooding Survivor
"Rio De Los Suenos"

On Memorial Day in 2015, the waters of the Blanco River rose well past its historic flooding level, over 40 feet. More than 700 homes were lost in Wimberley and the flood dramatically changed the riverfront. This year's Civic Club Home Tour, November 10 and 11, highlights four homes that suffered the ravages of the rising water and have been restored or rebuilt. "Rio de los Suenos," translated River of Dreams is one of these homes; rebuilt from the studs. The flood waters flooded the first floor and went beyond to the very top steps leading to the second floor.

"Rio de los Suenos," provides a true retreat for a large family. Four bedrooms plus a loft and four bathrooms in the main house give the family plenty of room to spread, and relax, in its open spaces and cozy nooks. To achieve this restful environment, the owner chose a neutral color palette and scoured the Hill Country for one-of-a-kind furniture and décor that are perfectly suited to the riverfront location.

Entertaining is easy at Rio de los Suenos: an amazingly equipped wet bar greets visitors at the front door. Ice maker, beverage storage, a variety of glasses for all kinds of libations are ready for guests and family. The open floor plan flows directly into the kitchen, anchored by a massive marble island that is a natural gathering place. Gourmet meals are prepared here, courtesy of the Wolf range, and on one of the many beautiful days we enjoy in this Valley, the meals can be enjoyed on the expansive deck overlooking the Blanco River.

The downstairs master suite is the epitome of luxury, and the master bath includes a relaxing steam shower and claw foot tub. Upstairs, the white and neutral palette continues in three bedrooms and a loft. The loft reminds us of Colonial homes in India featuring a fringed Indian shade umbrella and a white washed carved room screen. For large reunions, the spacious guest house over the garage offers two bedrooms, a large updated bathroom, and a fully-equipped kitchen. The guest house has a more rustic feel, providing contrast to the style of the main house.

Though the river wreaked so much destruction, it is once again tranquil and relaxing at Rio de los Suenos. Right on the river's edge with its own river island across a concrete bridge, it is worth your visit during Home Tour.
