Property Description

While the attributes of Smile on Spring Creek are extraordinary, the collection of historic buildings, anchored by the main house, is arguably the focal point. The legacy of pioneer Texas resides here. Smile boasts both banks of Spring Creek for about 350 yds and is completely private. The pond behind the house is fed by an unnamed creek and did not dry up during 2023's searing drought. Improvements consist of the Main Residence being two story limestone with 20" thick walls, the Little Rock House, Dog Trot Cabin and the Frame House each within walking distance of the swimming pool.
