Despite what it looks like, no, this gorgeous ranch in Aledo is not a dream. It is totally real, and it is truly amazing. This award-winning ranch in Aledo is just a short drive from D/FW International Airport and sits on 176 acres. It is the ultimate equestrian experience, a world-class training facility for those serious horse people. I mean, this is the Landry Center and Cooper Clinic for horses and it’s gorgeous, too!

Talk about location, y’all! Commuting distance to Dallas, and right by Highway 75 and McKinney, 4445 County Road 208 in Celina is for the working rancher. The property is a modest 7.22 acres, so plenty of room for a few stay-at-home horses without being overwhelming or too much to take care of. Seven acres is still what I like to call “riding lawnmower size.” No tractor required.

Welcome to Horse Country

Horse People, looky here! As a specialist in horse property, I’m always being asked to find clients  a “modest home on acreage, set up for horses”. Well, here it is! True horse people care much more about the land than the house, but this one is the rare gem that has both beautiful accommodations for the equines, as well as a stunning updated home for the two-legged loves of your life.

Secluded, quiet, and peaceful, this darling ranch on 26 acres in Parker County is just what the doctor ordered for a weekend getaway from Dallas. Looking more like a Hill Country castle than a West DFW ranch, the stone encased custom home features raw repurposed wood, wraparound porches, a wide open modern floorplan, and plenty of family friendly updates.

Even though it’s located 75 miles north of Dallas in the North Texas Red River Valley, the charming and private ranch at 423 Butterfield Road in Denison reminds me much more of a Hill Country paradise than a Grayson County compound, but at about half the price you’d expect to pay down south. Amidst a heavily wooded 16 acres behind a gated drive, this celebrity getaway-style retreat is the ultimate in relaxation and privacy.

If Mabank is the new Athens, then this house is the place to be. Located a mere 60 miles from Dallas, this is the perfect weekender, but is close enough to the city to commute if you need to. For the price of a typical subdivision home in Highland Park, you can have your own ranch paradise on 220 acres, right near Purtis Creek State Park. Talk about a great bang for your buck!

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!
