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.
Horse people are an efficient bunch. As a rule, we are much more concerned with the “creature comforts” for our animals than ourselves. Searching for property, the land is way more important than the house, and I’m repeatedly asked by clients to find them a “tiny house on a big piece of land.” And, quite frankly, we do not want to clean (or pay for) rooms we just will not use.
If this describes you, the barndominium at 3363 County Road 115 in Whitesboro could be your dream property. Fronting 20 beautiful treed sandy loam acres, this barn-home combination features a modest 1,696-square-feet of living space, complete with three bedrooms and two full baths. The open floorplan is warm and inviting, centered around a traditional stone fireplace.
The opposite end of the main structure conveniently has two stalls with turnout runs, a washrack, and tackroom. Covered parking for two cars seperates the home from the barn, making access to the horses just a short walk from your bedroom.
An additional 36 x 36-foot barn currently houses portable stalls, which the seller will consider selling with the property. This barn is big enough to continue as a horse barn, or make a fabulous shop or storage building.
The pastures are an absolute horse heaven with vinyl fencing, two ponds, automatic waterers, and loafing sheds for shelter from the elements.
One of the spectacular added bonuses to this lovely property is the optional opportunity to join the neighboring Horseman’s Ranch, which allows access to their 130 x 250-foot covered arena, fitness center, meeting room, and community maintained riding trails.
Everything a true horseperson could possibly want, this little slice of heaven is offered by Ebby Halliday Realtor Lisa Moden for $378,000.
