Here is a chance to live like you are getting away… without really getting away. You can do it on this amazing country estate in Sunnyvale that comes on 16 acres with a stocked pond, rolling terrain, and asses in the backyard.
With ranches, you can get whatever you want, really. Say you want a place to ride ATVs and hunt? There’s a ranch for that. Maybe you’re an equestrian and want a spot to enjoy your horses that isn’t too far out of town? There’s a ranch for that. Or, maybe you’re a hobby cattle raiser that wants a place where you can retire from the 9-to-5 grind? There’s a ranch for that, too.
Dallas luxury real estate broker Dave Perry-Miller has a second home in Bisbee, Ariz. If you want to find your own getaway in the remote mountain town, we’ve picked a few unique properties.
That’s why, I guess the folks promoting this nice little ranch in Van Alystyne, Texas put this guitar crooner on the website for the ranch. Like, front and center. Five bedrooms, four and a half baths, this place is billed as 30 acres of a horse rancher’s paradise with an executive home, pool, hot tub, riding arena, stables, bunk house, and will only set you back $899,995.
I am an amateur equestrian (read: I haven’t been on horseback in oh, say, 8 years). However, if I had a few million dollars and plenty of time on my hands, I would jump at the chance to own horses. But if you’re more than an amateur equestrian and you’ve got a few million dollars, then you should jump at the chance to have a stallion breeding facility in none other than Mustang, Texas.

This ranch sure caught my eye back in January, when I almost whipped out my checkbook to buy it for Valentine’s Day. Now it’s Father’s Day and thankfully, still on the market. Truth be told, the photos on line simply do not do it justice. This is ranch country, baby, Celina. (The town of Celina, here, is adorable, by the way.) Continue reading
This is a very special ranch, probably one of the most unique you’ve ever seen… dear in more ways than one. Even better: I can talk about it from total personal experience! This is the Benini Sculpture Ranch in Johnson City, Texas, 142 acres of beautiful Hill Country terrain enhanced with gorgeous, artistic sculptures. The prevailing story is that it was once owned by former President Lyndon Baines Johnson, a Texas legend of course and the 36th president of the U.S. Yes, the town is named after him and the LBJ ranch is only a few miles from this ranch.
Great Second Home at The Harbor, Possum Kingdom REDUCED, Relaxing, Ranch Lake Resort Living: Texas Second Home News
So it’s January, the holiday decorations are FINALLY put up, and I am determined to spend next Christmas in our second home. Look at what I just found at Possum Kingdom Lake: the owners are relocating to Chicago— they need to sell this place to buy furs! I am liking this location, a perfect combination of the RLR –ranch~lake~resort living in the Hill Country, but two hours west of Dallas/Fort Worth.
The Hill Country begins in Palo Pinto County!
This amazing home in Westlake, Texas started as a ranch when Westlake was nothing more than a farm town. I drove out to see this spread one crisp, fall day and am still in a trance – maybe why it’s taken me 1500 words to post it. Not only is it a ranch house originally designed by one of Dallas’ most famous architects, it was commissioned by a prominent Dallas family. Even more: the home was lovingly restored in 1977 after it was wrapped and moved in six pieces to its present land location – that’s right! This house was wrapped up like a delicate holiday ornament in Tyvek and moved on steel beams where it was put back together, melded, enhanced, and perfected in a beautiful, country like setting on 18 acres. You have no idea you are near civilization. As one writer described the setting: it’s an “ahhh experience”.
Winter Spring Summer and Fall, All You Have To Do is Call — Carole King’s Idaho Ranch Now a Blue Light Special
The price has been slashed from $16 million to just $11.5 for this amazing ranch spread one hour and a half north of the sleepy Ketchum/Sun Valley ski community of Hemingway fame. Located in the tiny town of Stanley, Idaho, and how cute is that name? (Not to be Debbie Downer, but Hemingway did commit suicide in Ketchum, which is really the town’s only claim to fame.) Prices soft in the Sun Valley environs these days; I hear there are tons of deals to steal.
