Looking to live like a former president? Now you can, if you're ready to drop $2.8 million and move to Johnson City, Texas. Former president Lyndon B. Johnson's Texas ranch sprawls over a gigantic 142 acres of lush land with incredible 360 degree views.
The property, located at 377 Shiloh Road, was purchased by Johnson in 1963 just one week into his presidency, and remained in his hands until 1971. The three-bedroom, two-bathroom main home on the estate was built on the foundation of the original LBJ home, with his bedroom and bathroom lovingly restored. The space features gorgeous stone and wood details and plenty of outdoor decks for taking in those sweeping hilltop views. An adjacent one-bedroom, one-bathroom cottage also stands, formerly used to house Johnson's Secret Service, obviously.
The estate is also the former home of Italian artist Benini, who purchased the home in 1999 with his wife Lorraine Benini. Together the couple transformed an existing 12,000-square-foot hanger into art galleries and an educational venue known as The Sculpture Ranch.
Only 25 minutes from Fredericksburg, this stunning hilltop estate offers rich history, art dripping from every corner and views abound at 1,800 feet of elevation.
