I am a neighbor, friend, and fellow astronomer, assisting the estate of Mr. Wayne Gindrup, in the sale of his property in Fort Davis, Texas, Limpia Crossing. Mr. Gindrup was a professional chemist, and well-known amateur astronomer.
15 acres and an astronomers dream dark sky location (not far from McDonald Observatory, as shown in the picture). Amateur astronomers surround the property on all sides. Two concrete observing pads, 12 x 12 and 8 x 8 feet, with power and central isolated pier.
The home is a top-line manufactured home with a Northern Energy Package ( R52 ) and structurally designed for Coastal Hurricane Zone II. Metal Roof. Masonry siding. All construction completed within the last two years.
The house is 2700 square feet with a insulated oversized 2-car garage, patio and deck areas.
Included is a fully functional chemistry lab ( located adjacent to the two concrete pads ), designed to Government specifications. This lab is fully furnished with equipment and chemicals, which could be included in the sale at no added cost, if desired by buyer, or donated to a University.
