The Tonkawa riverfront retreat (The Tonk), located on the Middle Bosque River, is a one-of-a-kind architectural masterwork hidden away on 10 acres. This unique, designer home has garnered several national and statewide awards and is featured in magazines and videos. This gated entry to the property has a deliberately unassuming approach and is surrounded by forests, river and meadows, one-half mile from the nearest neighbor. Property has over 180 yards of river frontage. This home is perfect for entertaining or even hosting large gatherings to include weddings and special events with additional outdoor living space and RV accommodations or food truck. It was recently celebrated as the #1 Airbnb mansion in Texas by a prominent travel website. Surrounded by cool reflecting ponds and waterfalls, the 147 floor-to-ceiling windows generate continuous dancing light on the walls and ceiling.
