Magnolia Pearl Ranch For Sale

My sweet friends, Robin Brown and John Gray of
are selling their incredible ranch 
in Bandera, Texas
and I am so thrilled to
bring this exceptional
property to a wider audience.

I was fortunate enough to be able
to photograph this wonderland last month,
and I am beyond thrilled
to help Robin and John
present this treasure to the world.

 "On earth as it is in Heaven"
And indeed it is.
Nestled in the beautiful Bandera countryside, 
in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, 
is a little slice of Heaven on earth.
Surrounded by majestic ranches, 
the former homestead of 
renowned clothing designer Robin "Magnolia Pearl" Brown and John Gray 
is being offered for sale, 
and utopian paradise hardly begins
to describe the treasures
to be found on this
exceptional property.

The delicate flowers and even the
faux cracks in the wall
are all hand painted.

On 38 acres, this expansive estate 
features 3 complete homes 
with central heat and air, 
18 external structures, 
3 delightful outdoor shower / baths 
supplied by on demand hot water heaters, 
and imaginatively adorned structures 
such as a whimsical chicken coop 
complete with chandelier 
and birdhouses galore.

A cleaner and more spic-and-span
home you will never find.
Aged to perfection via artistry...
no dirt, mold, water damage.

The old world patina is a deliberate
and stunning embellishment throughout.

Everything you see,
and a thousand lovely things you
don't see all convey.

Window treatments, artistic touches,
and grace notes of
beauty throughout.
This is truly a place
touched by magic.

The kitchen walls above?
That's carpet fabric!
Simply stunning.

Upon entering the living spaces, 
you will be charmed to discover 
that not only do all the 
fully functioning appliances convey, 
but that artistic adornments 
are found around each and every corner.
Between the 3 houses, 
enchantments such as...

antique cast iron beds, 
25 chandeliers collected 
from around the world, 
3 clawfoot tubs,
large stone fireplaces, 
and spacious porches,
are only the beginning.
The interior walls were a captivating canvas 
for hand-painted artistic designs, 
true works of art in and of themselves.

More about the beauty above just a
little further down.

The interior ceilings are covered 
in antique tins rescued and restored 
from an abandoned movie theater 
in New York City.
The bath in the main house 
boasts a magnificent sink 
designed by Robin herself, 
featuring an abundance of 
antique French majolica roses 
acquired from the 
Marbuger Farm Antique Show.

Vintage screen porch doors galore.

In keeping with this theme, 
the entry gate leading up 
to the main house is framed 
by a spellbinding stone archway 
also designed by Robin. 

This too is embellished 
by the same lovely majolica roses 
as well as an exquisite 
antique cloisonne vase 
which belonged to Robin's grandmother.

Iron gate leading to
one of three outdoor spas.

The fully furnished guest house.

The old sewing house,
where so many gorgeous Magnolia Pearl
creations were born!

Notice the darling pink fridge
in the upper left corner?

Again, all 3 of the
clawfoot tubs convey.

This labor of love, 
12 years in the making, 
was where Robin's 
internationally acclaimed 
clothing line was birthed. 

It has been featured in countless 
magazine publications as well as 
also being the subject of a book 
published by Country Living.

Offered at $695,000, this property 
is centrally located one hour 
from San Antonio, Texas
and 7 miles from Bandera.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime
chance for you to be able to
 grab a little slice of Heaven
for yourself.

Thanks for the chance, Pam

I love that house!!! And of course now I'm all curious on the Fredricksburg home. :)

Thanks to my GA friend Brenda, I love everything Magnolia Pearl. Not that I've ever found anything here in France...

So I'm willingly taking a chance on this brilliant giveaway to get to see Magnolia Pearl clothing for real. :D

Unknown said...

I think this property, and your photographs reflect the love that so obviously abounds there! I so wish I could buy it and soak all that in. What a magical place to let the creative juices flow! I "liked" your pinterest page on facebook (which I never do) and if I can figure out how, I plan to subscribe to your blog. I have also "followed" you on Pinterest. I can't wait to see more of your work, and to see where Magnolia Pearl lands next.

River Gypsy said...

My best friend Bonnie died 6 years ago. We used to dress up to go to the hospital for chemo, and then go out to lunch. We dreamed about a ranch like this, wearing clothing like Pearl Magnolia, picnicking in the garden. I would love to live at this charming ranch, I know there is a beautiful soul moving to Texas who is going to be thanking her lucky star!

Pennyblossoms said...

Found you via Nostalgia at the Stone House...was intrigued by the photo of such an amazing home.
My one presiding thought is why anyone could leave all that beauty behind and move somewhere else; which makes me a tad concerned.
But it would be such a treat to win one of those amazing outfits!
I'm off to find out more info!!

Barbie said...

I first read about Pearl perhaps in 2004? I remember my heart leaping inside when I saw a photo of her on the floor surrounded by old laces and trims & the most wonderful cloth. I remember thinking to myself, "Gosh, I wish I could just get down on the floor too and feel and smell and touch it all." It is my pleasure to blog about the Ranch for sale. Barbie

Rainbow Gatherer said...

I posted this giveaway on my fb page. what a whimsical collection! I adored each piece and would love to wear these. I wish to win outfit no 2, ust my style.
