One of the things I adore about 14805 Brown Bluff Circle is the fact that you feel miles from nowhere and yet you are about seven minutes to organic groceries and public transportation in Leander Texas. The neighborhood of Apple Springs itself has a very rural feel. Additionally, the major portion of the 3.122 acres is behind the home serving as your very own owned green belt. Look at this beautiful aerial video of the home, gardens and acreage to see the owned acreage as well as the ranch behind it.
