Perched on the southern edge of Texas Hill Country, this Mediterranean-style villa is completely secluded on 29 acres. The privacy is unsurpassed, said listing agent Binkan Cinaroglu of Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty.

The two-story house, set around a mosaic-tile swimming pool, overlooks a lawn with a large pond. There are loggias off the home’s living areas; many of the rooms open to private terraces.
