Custom Barndominium on 10 Acres Offers Fab Vacation Home Close to Dallas | SecondShelters.com

We see a lot of fabulous homes, but few grab our attention like a Pottsboro property that just hit the market, located about an hour north of Dallas. This is a perfect weekend house if we ever saw one!

The barndominium at 192 McClain Ln. is a sight to behold, an enchanting and unusual house made to look like a rustic wood barn with lots of high-end features for the discerning buyer. It has five bedrooms, four full bathrooms, two half baths, and 5,293 square feet on two stories, sitting on 10 acres close to the Texas-Oklahoma border.

Located two miles from the shores of Lake Texoma, this residence was built as a vacation home by DFW residents looking to create a gathering spot for four adult children, grandchildren, and family friends alike.

Shares are now available in Sunday House Six, scheduled for completion in Spring 2017. Here’s a look at this deal with appeal to those who can’t do all the time, but, like me, have Hill County in their soul:
