Ideally located near Fort Worth in the Aledo School district, this approximately 73-acre property is a rare opportunity to enjoy country living only minutes from the City! Purchased by the current owners in 2006, an extensive re-model of the existing buildings, and the addition of several new buildings took place between 2009 and 2016. Lovers of history and of nature, the owners selected reclaimed and natural materials as much as possible. The 7014 sq ft Main House is situated on the banks overlooking Bear Creek in a setting like no other in the area with 5 bedrooms, 5 baths and 2 half baths. The owners, architects and builders worked with renowned New York interior designer, Alexa Hampton, to create a sense of history and tradition in a relaxed atmosphere. The wood floors throughout are 8-inch oak floor boards salvaged from century old buildings. The master suite opens onto a beautiful courtyard with a fountain and views of the creek. Upstairs are 4 bedrooms, each with their its own private bath. The kitchen has a large island, an abundance of cabinets and storage space, and boasts two of almost every appliance a modern kitchen needs. An outdoor room with a fireplace and a retracting wall system can be used in comfort year-round giving beautiful views of the creek. This farm features a 20-stall horse barn with amenities including a catering kitchen. Currently being used primarily for private parties, it is ideal for entertaining yet fully functional for horses. The adjacent covered arena has an enclosed, climate controlled viewing gallery with a retracting window system. The pool house is ideal for poolside entertainment. The Zen-inspired pool has a large spa, copper lined waterfall, and 3 copper fountains that spill into the lap lane. There is a splash deck, in-floor cleaning system, salt-chlorine filter system and LED lighting. An adjacent additional 63 acres with a nice brick three bedroom home is also available. The Guest House has beautiful views from every room. Three bedrooms and 2 baths, kitchen and laundry room make it ideal for family, friends or business associates. Previously the home of champion race horses and Iberian dressage horses, this 73-acre farm is just 20 miles from downtown Fort Worth. The main residence is situated on the banks of Bear Creek, where fishing for largemouth bass, perch, and catfish can be enjoyed, making this a very rare live water property in the area. The woodland areas have a variety of mature trees including large pecans and centuries-old oaks. Among the many species of Texas native wildlife that are found on the farm are whitetail deer, wild turkey, hawks, owls, blue herons, foxes, bobwhite quail, migratory ducks, and other water fowl. As you drive through the main gate and past the fields, you are transported into a genteel world as you arrive at the main house with its columned front porch. Taking full advantage of the surrounding views, the home provides multiple outdoor living spaces. Set above the creek, the back of the home has a kitchen patio, courtyard, outdoor room with fireplace, and flagstone steps which lead to the creek-side fire pit below. The guest house is to the west and provides daily viewing of the whitetail deer as they pass by. The pool house is to the east and is surrounded by a large garden landscaped with Texas native plants which attract numerous hummingbirds, songbirds, and butterflies. The 20-stall stable has 2 grooming stalls, galvanized wash area with hot and cold water, air-conditioned bead board tack rooms, 2 feed bays, 4 Big Ass fans, fly spay system, sound system, radiant heaters, generator, decorative lighting, and a stainless-steel catering kitchen. Presently used primarily for private parties, the stable remains fully functional for horses and other animals. The adjacent covered arena and enclosed viewing gallery has hosted numerous riding exhibitions, clinics, and workshops. The wind screens, overhead lighting, audio system, and retractable windows make the arena and viewing gallery suitable for use all year round and in most weather conditions. A small, young, fruit tree orchard includes peach, pear, plum, apricot and apple trees. The chicken coop houses laying hens who have open access to the orchard. In the past, a vegetable garden grew a variety of produce that was sold regularly at the local Farmers Market. Hydro-engineers, arborists, and agronomists have spent hundreds of hours collectively over the past 10 years improving the quality of the land itself. Over 200 trees have been planted since 2012.
