historical shelterIt’s not often that we are able to bring you a historical shelter that is a) close enough to be able to attend an open house, and b) is having an open house so you can actually go see it in the flesh.

Today, you’re in luck, because we have an adorable historical storefront that could be commercial property, but is currently staged and used as a home — in the cute little East Texas town of Golden.

Close to Mineola, as a home, it manages to give up both a farmhouse country feel and an industrial loft feel at the same time. (more…)


If you’ve always wanted a place in the country, but just a stone’s throw away from the city, the ranch at 5575 W Hwy 175 in Kaufman might be your dream come true. A mere 32 miles from downtown Dallas, this little ranchette is the perfect mix of city and country, and still within commuting distance. Located right off the access road to Highway 175, you can quite literally just hop on the highway and go. And no worries about traffic noise — the house and barn are set on the very back of the 14.5-acre property on the top of the hill, offering sprawling views of the pastures and surrounding countryside. I mean, just look at those bluebonnets!

This home is just so beautiful, so one-of-a-kind, I’m a bit at a loss for words. Built in 1914 by a prominent Commerce family, the John T. Knight home is a fully renovated masterpiece of charm and elegance. Mr. Knight was a big shot in this little town, serving as both the banker and the grocer, and the home is reflective of his Edwardian-era status.


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.

In fact, there are so many great ranches in Texas of all sizes that our favorites are too numerous to list here. Instead, here’s a little sample of what you can get in Texas ranch properties.
